The idea of a loved one developing a disease or illness was always a fear. After having children, the idea was so devastating that I felt that I needed to do all I could to avoid that. There isn’t much control a parent has from avoiding inevitable truths but if there was something I could control, I was going to […]

To Pop or Not to Pop?

September 24, 2011

Is ok for kids to have pop? Is it even ok for adults to have soda? At what age is it acceptable? I add this to my favorite things because I love pop as my special treat. I, of course, love an added caffeine boost mid-day but I happen to really love these two sodas as a treat (with and […]

The things we do to look pretty…

September 14, 2011

Disclaimer: I realize I’m anal retentive In true parental ritual, shoes were purchased at the beginning of the school year. These shoes were important to me because you look at them for quite awhile on your kids. Last year was the first year Drew’s feet stopped growing at lightening speed and he spent quite a long time in his gym […]

What’s the deal?

September 13, 2011

Homemade applesauce – denied! Organic applesauce – denied! Cinnamon applesauce – denied! GoGo Squeez – bring it on! Drew has never been a big fan of applesauce. In fact, he once threw up when I gave him homemade applesauce. Ironically, I loved every bite but he would not eat it! Gabby completely denies any efforts for me to try and […]

Do you need a high chair?

September 2, 2011

I have a friend who is about to be a first time mom and I tried to come up with some bits of wisdom on mommy products. Of the few I had to offer her one was my feelings on highchairs. To high chair or not to high chair, that is the question? I’m thinking not to high chair. With […]

The Car Seat Debacle of 2011

August 17, 2011

When Drew was first born I researched the variety of car seats available for an infant and settled on a Graco. It was quite practical; universal with most strollers, had lovely attachments to fit into different bases for different cars and allowed the child to be carried while sleeping without being moved. I discussed with other mothers the value of […]

Oooooh Aaaaah

August 10, 2011

I’m obsessed. I know obsessed may sound extreme for a towel but I was in a really tough spot before this towel came into our lives. Maybe tough isn’t the right word. Wet. We were in a wet spot. Drew, being a three year old or two year old at the time, had outgrown those baby hoody towels. He had […]

Strollers Anonymous

July 28, 2011

Clearly there’s a need for ONE stroller, and maybe even two strollers once you have your second. But why does anyone need FOUR strollers?!?! We have four strollers; we should probably go to a “Strollers Anonymous” group. When we had our first child we were gifted, by my dear in-laws, the very expensive (and prestigious) Bugaboo Cameleon. At the time, […]

How do you clean your wood floors?

July 21, 2011

Sounds pretty basic but it’s something I have been struggling with. We added wood floors to our main level six months ago. And although I love the look of them, they are impossible to keep clean. Salesperson suggested “Pledge Floor Care 4-in-1” which seemed to do a decent job if you spread it around well enough but the spout doesn’t […]

Diaper Bags

July 14, 2011

Diaper Bags – no longer something to carry diapers in but an accessory! While I was pregnant with my first, I researched products. Diaper bags, in particular, were one subject I spent a great deal of time on. After scouring the internet and reading all the reviews I could, I decided to go with the Ju-Ju Be All in brown […]
