Ask the Moms: Do you ever leave your kids in the car?
Let me re-phrase the question. If you're running into the store 'real quick,' do you leave your kids in the car? If you're just running up to the door of a friends house, do you leave your child in the car? What about if you pull up to a 7-11, the baby is sleeping or the kids are behaving well, do you run inside real quick and just keep the car locked?
I want to know.
Do you feel like it's safe to leave your kids in the car for any amount of time at all? Or do you always, even if it's only to the mailbox, take your kids out with you?
Do you have a rule of thumb that you go by when deciding this? What about if your kids are sleeping? Do you wake them up, or leave them be? What about if your in your driveway, about ready to back out, but then you remembered you forgot something inside the house?
Tell me your thoughts. I mean, please.

The day you get pregnant, the talk begins about about what you should and shouldn't do, how often you should sleep, what to name your baby, and what kind of car seat to buy. You know you need good nutrition, vitamins, rest and exercise. You need clothes for the baby, a sleeping arrangement and a good pediatrician. You need a swing and diapers. Those things are all (obviously) very important and necessary. But, what about the… Continue

You Know You're a Mom When...
You know you're a mom when.....
...Spit-up has completely phased you. You have learned to rub it in to your clothes if needed.
...You're away from your baby for less than an hour and you miss him the entire time.
...You see poop, like GOOD poop in your child's diaper and you dance the happy dance. You might event take a picture with it on your phone and send it to your husband, family or friends.
...You can… Continue

The AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) recommends no television-or any screen time-for children under two years old. Still, Baby Einstein DVD's are sold with claims to make your children smarter. They claim to teach your child the ABC's and how to count to 20. They claim to be good for your kids, fun and educational.
Because sitting your 9 month old in front of the television for thirty minutes while their brain and mind is so overstimulated that they won't and can't respond to… Continue

Halloween (ThanksgivingandChristmas!!) is almost here!
Do your children participate in Halloween activities? Does your family celebrate this Holiday?
We don't really.
The closest decorations I get to Halloween is Candy Corn and pumpkins which to us are Fall decorations. I did dress up in High School of course, because that was the cool thing to do. But, since I've became an "adult" and moved out of my parents house, I've never dressed up or passed out candy to… Continue

In today's world, almost every product created for children is just that, already created. The place to grow, imagine and be creative is hard to do when an opportunity isn't available. A paint by numbers coloring book tells you exactly where to paint and with what colors. Step by step instructions on how you should paint. A doll is already dressed in perfectly matched clothes with matching accessories. A building is already created, all is left is to add your men. The baby toy is complete with… Continue
