Sing-it,-Mamas

Sing it, Mamas!

On a recent family day out to a local theme park that specializes in animals, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised to find that while the kids loved seeing all the animals in the “wild,” that wasn’t what enamored them the most. They loved the street party held in the early evening that included […]

Words-Matter

Words Matter

Especially to children. Words matter, especially to children. That quote keeps ringing through my head after hearing it during a recent interview between two very high profile women. Sticking my foot in my mouth is a given for me, in almost any circumstance, but especially when I’m nervous, uncomfortable or stressed. I almost always follow […]

Toiletries for Toddlers (and their Stockings)

Yes, we really need more toilet paper already. And while I’m at it, we need bubble gum-flavored children’s toothpaste with Cinderella, Rapunzel and Ariel on the package, shampoo that is tear-free and preferably with conditioner, but if the shampoo doesn’t include conditioner, then we need that, too. We also need new Dory, Minnie and Skye […]

Birth Order and Personality: What if She’s the Oldest, Middle AND Younger Sister?

I never know how to describe one of my daughters when asked where she “falls”. She is the first born of twin girls and she has an older sister. So is she a middle daughter? Older twin?  Younger sister? Yes. All of the above. Right or wrong, I usually say she’s our middle daughter, but […]

Dinner Delivered: HelloFresh vs. Blue Apron vs. Farm-Haus

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a 19-month old!

Having used the Booginhead pacifier clips when the girls were younger, and liking them, I suspected that I would also like the Booginhead Bib and Cape Set and BooginHead WOW Melamine Cup Set. And I definitely did. However, it’s a good thing I have a three-and-a- half-year old as well as 19-month olds because the […]

PROCRASTINATION

Fellow Holiday Procrastinators, we’re breaking up

  While out looking for Christmas décor two weeks before Christmas, I walked by an aisle of décor for Valentine’s Day. And a children’s clothing store? Hardly any Christmas attire left, but all the Valentine’s outfits were on full display. O.M.G. It’s TWO MONTHS before that holiday. I visited three stores two weeks before Thanksgiving […]

Cheers to a (small) celebration for mom and dad!

Poppin’ bottles in the ice. Like a G6. Doesn’t everyone sing this song to make the time pass faster as they wash bottles? Doesn’t everyone spend 40 mins. washing and sanitizing bottles every night?? You don’t all wash 12 bottles per night?? Hello?? Anyone??? It’s finally over. We survived. And we are ecstatic. Elated. Thrilled. […]
