My insatiable penchant for quality children's footwear knows no bounds. It cares not for pay day, savings or our desire to eat for the rest of the month. It just presses ahead, snatching at the nearest available overdraft, credit card or property re-mortgage in order to purchase every perfectly fitting 3.5G mule in the land. I am utterly powerless to control it. And if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

I don't usually do it ... go out on Black Friday. We did this year, not for the sales and not before dawn. No, that is not us. I don't have the patience for the pushing and the shoving. Large crowds like that make me very nervous. Nope not for me. However, we did go out at mid-morning ... here is our adventure. Just click on the link to share it with us. …Continue

Today is Perfect Picture Book Friday where I link up with Susanna Leonard Hill’s fantastic group of picture book writers, illustrators, librarians and others who contribute a picture book review.
Before I get to the picture book review, I wanted to share some thoughts about parenting.
Last night, my husband and I enjoyed watching an old Andy Griffith Show from the 1961 season…”…Continue

Happy day after Thanksgiving! Yesterday, we gave thanks. This morning, I sat around and appreciated two of the things I’m thankful for (besides my amazing hubs): my little moose and my big moose. Aka RJ and Lucy. The three of us sat around – well, these two slept and mama worked, but still: we did it from the couch. My plan was to brave Black Friday around ten – because there were some awesome little shoes I wanted to pick up for the little guy – but then it snowed last…Continue

Sally is a stay at home mom to her newborn infant. She planned on exclusively breastfeeding her baby; however, one day Jacob decided to skip a feeding. When Sally was pregnant, she never researched breast pumps or what to do in case she ended up with engorged breasts. She wasn’t prepared when her breasts became engorged and they began hurting.

As we were ushering our children and their grandparents into cars to go to the 39th Annual Turkey Bowl – a tradition my husband has been a part of since the early 1990s – Jeff spied me slipping a notebook into my parka. “Oooohhhh!” he exclaimed, shaking his head. “I thought your zeal for my participation was somewhat atypical.”
When we first dated, I encouraged my husband to play in this Thanksgiving Day touch football game with a group of fellows he once lived with in…Continue

** That stupid Taylor Swift song is never ever ever gonna get out of my damn head.

Now that Thanksgiving is over and you’re home from all that Black Friday shopping, you know what you want to do. No, not take a nap. Not wrap all those holiday gifts. You want to decorate for Christmas, duh! And where better to start than by putting up some garlands. Right? I thought so.
Let’s start with the outdoor ones first – since it’s freezing in the frigid tundra today, you probably want to get these out of the way first!
I have two banisters on our front…Continue

Many parents work very hard to decorate a nursery for their baby; however, most parents will tell you that their child didn’t sleep in his or her own room for the first few weeks. During those first few weeks most parents choose to keep the baby in their room so that they can easily check on them during the middle of the night.
