I can’t believe that today is the last day of 2013. The year has gone by so fast. It has been a really big year for Rock-A-Bye Parents. Thanks to all of you the blog has grown by leaps and bounds and it was chosen as the number one review blog by voiceBoks! For the final post of the year I thought it would be fun to look back and see what the 10 most viewed posts of 2013 were.
Number 10: What to do with Ripe Bananas – Do you ever end up with a lot of ripe bananas that no one in the house will eat? Well, I have compiled a huge list of recipe ideas of what you can do with them. Now you don’t have to waste your money by throwing them out.
Number 9: Cars Birthday Ideas Pinterest Roundup – For Nick’s second birthday this year we did a Cars theme. To get decorating ideas I did a lot of searching on Pinterest and I put all of the inspirational pictures into a blog post to share with all of you.
Number 8: 10 Sites to Make Money Online – Over the years I made extra money for gifts and vacations by taking surveys and doing other activities online. In this post I compiled a list of the 10 sites that I liked using the best.
Number 7: How to Create the Scent of Christmas with Cinnamon Ornaments – Not long ago I posted about how to make cinnamon ornaments. These are such a fun and easy, decorations to make. You can’t beat the smell that they’ll add to your house either!
Number 6: Egg Free Doughnut Recipe – I’m a big doughnut fan, so I was saddened by the fact that Nick couldn’t eat them because of his egg allergy, but where there’s a will there’s a way. Here is our family’s recipe for egg free doughnuts. They’re easy to make and they taste great!
Number 5: Walt Disney World Dining Plan: Is it Worth the Cost? – In September we took Nick to Walt Disney World. On our trip we took advantage of their free dining plan deal. Many people really like the plan, while many others find that they could save money by not getting it. In this post I break it all down to help you decide if the plan is right for your family.
Number 4: Halloween Craft that Promotes Learning – Before Halloween I posted a fun and easy Halloween craft for kids to make. In the post I also added lots of different ways that this craft can be used to promote learning. It’s easy to get kids to learn if they are having fun while doing it.
Number 3: How to Make a Money Pizza – One of my favorite gifts to give a high school graduate is a money pizza. They always appreciate money, but this is far more fun than getting yet another check. In this post I’ll walk you through the steps for how to make one.
Number 2: How to Get Rid of Cradle Cap – This one is actually a post from 2012, but it still gets a lot of visits because it’s a problem that so many little ones have. Nick had a bad case of cradle cap, and months after we had cleared it up it came back! In this post I tell about the wonderful product that helped get rid of his cradle cap once and for all.
Number 1: Ways to Use a Boppy – The most popular post of the year is another oldy but goody. In fact this post is almost two years old! Even though I didn’t nurse I still loved my Boppy and we got a ton of use out of it. In this post I highlight all of the different ways that you can use a Boppy.
Thank you for helping make 2013 such a successful year! I look forward to sharing more stories and tips with you in 2014.
