Tried and True: Baby Monitors

*”Tried and True” will be an on going thread where I will be reviewing the products we have tried out in our lives as parents!* Ah, the baby monitor. The new parent doesn’t let it out of sight, yet never gets far enough away from baby that they wouldn’t hear them anyways. The more experienced parent knows EXACTLY how far […]

A Mom’s Body

*This is a (slightly edited) fb status message I posted late last night regarding THIS article – please read it first!* I love the comment about surrendering your body to motherhood… that is it EXACTLY! Not only in shape and size. You GROW a child. You are at your body’s beck and call while that blessing develops inside of you. […]

Pimp Your Pictures

I have always been "snap happy". I’ve been a picture person since I was young! Having Liam has sent that into overdrive. Like, 50-100 photos on an average day isn’t rare.

And how can you help? Why? OK, […]

Ahhh – carry-ons. This was hard for me before baby. But now I have to SHARE one of my carry-ons with Pipsqueak – i yi yi… And if what he needs isn’t in his carry-on we don’t have it. We don’t have it for upteen million hours in the air. Ok, more like a few hours. But without that ONE […]

Flying with Baby: Car Seats and Strollers

I know quite a few supermoms who have flown without their strollers. That is NOT ME. For one thing, I love my stroller. Like, seriously. BOB is my boyfriend and my husband totally accepts this fact *wink*. And for another, there are just some moment when wearing Liam isn’t an option (he’s not in the mood, he fell asleep in […]

Parenting Crazies

The Parenting Crazies – it’s those words and/or actions we do for the good of our child. Ok, sometimes it’s simply for the good of our sanity. But if you think about it, our kids fair MUCH better when we are sane. So all in all, it’s really for them. I’ve had many of these moments in Liam’s short life. […]
