Task to Tackle Tuesday 5: Plasticware Drawer

T2TT: Plasticware & Cutting Board Drawer Location:  Kitchen Time:  10 minutes (plus time to purchase CD rack as lid holder) I have very limited kitchen space.  To be honest, I have just one lower cabinet, a sink cabinet, a lazy susan and three large drawers.  In the bottom large drawer I store my plastic ware (because like most people I seem to have a lot) and…See More

Task to Tackle Tuesday 2: Coat Closet

T2TT:  Coat ClosetLocation:  HallwayTime: 50 minutesIt is finally starting to feel like fall around here.  So I know that the cold weather and winter is not far behind.  And when I went to grab a jacket out of our coat closet one chilly evening, my next Task to Tackle became evident.  Our coat closet had become a catch all for many things other than coats.  And…See More

Moving Forward By Backing Up

My laptop is on the fritz.  I am prepping myself for the day (probably soon) when I go to turn it on and it goes "poof".  Now I know there is probably some sort of technical fix to retrieve all my personal and business information but frankly hunting down a laptop will take all the extra energy and time I have to spare.…See More

The Social Media Time Vacuum

I am totally guilty of getting sucked into Twitter.  And Facebook.  And now Pinterest.  It doesn't help that as a small business owner with a limited advertising budget, social media is a great way to meet new clients and advertise.  I may say I go on for my business, but I know I stay for the pleasure of social media.I have a theory…See More

Homemade Baby Food Menu Planner

After my post "My Homemade Baby Food Making Plan" I received requests for more details into my process.  Well ask and you shall receive.  I have broken down fruits, veggies and grains into Flavors, Flats and Fillers.  In the early months I would give him a single selection (starter fruits and veggies such as pears, apples, bananas, avocado, sweet potato) along with his steady diet of…See More

An Organized Potty?!? You Betcha!

When we were visiting friends a few weekends back in Chicago, I noticed they had a great toilet seat with a built in potty chair.  The Church NextStep Toilet Seat is available at your local big box hardware store or online through Amazon and…See More

My Homemade Baby Food Making Plan

I've had a couple of friends recently ask me how I find the time to make homemade baby food.  I try to explain it's not necessarily a matter of finding time but making the most of the time you have available to make the food.  Which of course means I have have an organized plan when I sit down to make the food...'cause I'm a geek for…See More

A Baby File

I had one of the those "If I Knew Then What I Know Now" moments at my sister's baby shower recently.  While I tried to keep our registry to what I truly thought we would need, there definitely were a few items that found their way into our collection that I look at now and think "why did I want that?  I never use it."  Which got me…See More

The Toy Dilemma

The overwhelming issue when I work with moms is too many toys in the house.  The toy manufacturers have done a fantastic job of convincing both kids and parents that they need the newest, greatest, latest, updated thing-a-ma-jig.  Despite the fact that the previous version of said thing-a-ma-jig is still perfectly fine and lying on the toy…See More

WHAT'S THE PRICE OF YOUR MATERNITY LEAVE?

My 7 month pregnant sister just realized that she is unable to use her paid sick leave to add on to her maternity leave.  So essentially she will be only be paid for 6-8 weeks for her maternity leave.  Which all in all is better than NOT having any paid maternity leave.  But since they recently purchased a new home, she…See More

GUIDE TO GETTING OUT THE DOOR

We are lucky enough to have arranged our work schedules so our little guy is at home with one of us while the other parent works.  At least most of the time.  This week is the first time we had to take to him to a sitter outside of the home.  I gotta tell you, I have mad props for the moms that do this every morning. I sorely underestimated the amount of planning and effort it would take to arrive at both the sitter and my appointment on time.  I went to bed thinking "all I need to do in the…See More

To Grandmother's House We Go

It dawned on me this morning that next week is Thanksgiving and I am going out of town with my little guy for 6 days.  Did I mention I have yet to travel with my little guy any longer than a few hours and never overnight?  I figured this would be a great time to put together a list of what needs to come with us when we're heading out of town overnight.  I spent a few days jotting down items I use for the care of my little guy on a daily basis and determined what I need to bring and what can…See More

Giving Thanks for Family Holidays

Ever since Martha Stewart burst onto the scene, the holiday season seems to have taken a turn for the crazy.  What used to feel like a standard family gathering can now feel like a competition for the most involved centerpiece or best twist on traditional turkey recipe.  And with all this increased effort to create the…See More
