Whenever we're heading out somewhere, Hubby will always inevitably become perturbed that we're not running on time. He stands at the front door, saying, "It's 6pm. We're supposed to be there by now!" And that would be fine, if it wasn't always up… Continue

Just so we're straight- I'm not the one on the potty.
Baby Lug is.
As I type this I’m potty training Baby Lug, whose just turned 3.
Thank goodness I have a ton of Easter Candy to dole out for each time he uses the toilet. Otherwise I'd be in big… Continue

So, I can read, big deal right. It was pointed out to me recently that with the death of J.D. Salinger all my favorite authors are dead. Just in case you wanted to know the others include Douglas Adams and a bunch of long gone philosophers. I don’t make nearly enough time for my own reading pleasure anymore and no where has that been more… Continue

The British Journal of Psychiatry has published the findings of a new research study from the Australian National University. After studying 1,241 women, scientists concluded that women's memories remained as good during and after pregnancy as before. Prof Helen Christensen who led the study said "women need to be less automatic in their willingness to attribute common memory lapses to a… Continue

As any mother knows no matter how much love we have for our children,
they also have this ability to work the last little bit of patience we
have in us!!
Last night on the way home from Keelee's cheer practice we decided to stop by Big Lots to get a small treat since the kids had a great… Continue

Not Me! Monday
I did not
wear a white and a black woolen sock to New York City the other day. Uh, yes I did. I was invited by Hasbro to a blogger event before they officially opened their doors for the New York Toy Fair (look out for the extensive blog post on that). I could only find one of each, it was 6 in the morning when I got dressed, and nobody was going to notice anyway. I could have worn other socks -- I have plenty -- but these are my… Continue

Now is the time to start a new resolution. Why not teach your child French? If you don't know how to speak French, no problem. You can learn with your child and it can be a bonding experience, as well as an educational one! Good Luck!

I have a mild case of OCD which doesn't bother me too much, but in the case of things like decorating the Christmas tree, can be a little annoying. Decorating the tree for me it isn't just about placing items where they look the best, it is also about having them feel right. I know, it sounds crazy, but there is an actual physical discomfort when things aren't 'just so'.
This year I decided to just enjoy decorating the tree with my girls and to just let go of my need to decorate to… Continue

Call me paranoid, but I am still a little wary of letting my kids post videos or any pic of themselves online. How about you? I started a forum on this topic at the Family Connections Group at Blogher, click HERE

Why do manufacturers skip over the size 9 for children?
Seriously, look at The Gap and search by size. Where’d the 9 go? And Old Navy? Same thing. It’s not just those retailers either. The chart on the left? (If you go to my blog
you'll see the chart) That’s from Garnett Hill. There IS no size 9 for kids there either. Why is this?
I can deal with this size 9 thing when it comes to tops. Boys tend to like their… Continue

I learned about Jennifer and Stellan a few days ago, and that sweet little boy has been on my mind since then. Jennifer’s beautiful blog, My Charming Kids, is actually one of the first mom blogs I ever came across seven months ago when I started my blog, but I hadn’t checked in until a tweet by another mom caught my attention. Stellan, one of four, is her nine-month-old adorable little boy who has heart failure, and Jennifer blogs about their difficult and heart-breaking journey every day. More… Continue

I have a wedding anniversary coming up and if you asked me how long I've been married I couldn't tell you. It's not that I don't care, I just don't remember. It's a numbers thing with me. Can't add, subtract or recall them in any way, shape, or form. I admit that I am numerically challenged. I rode the "special" bus with the other mathematically dim children when I was in elementary school.
I was married in a beautiful Pacific Heights mansion overlooking the San Francisco Bay. My… Continue

I was approached by the makers of Karito Kids dolls, KidsGive LLC, to review two of their “Word Collection” dolls. The word “Karito” means “charity” and “love of one’s neighbor” in Esperanto. Karito Kids highlights the beauty of each ethnic group and depicts modern-day life in each country and culture, showing children the similarities shared by kids around the world.
Every one of these tall, beautifully crafted dolls comes with the… Continue

I firmly believe that diapers and Pull Ups should not be decorated with pretty princesses, cute cars or happy puppies. They should be emblazoned with screaming fiery demons at the gates of Hell and scary one eyed clowns. Maybe even come with some sort of horrific aroma like rotten garbage or skunk. I think that way the kids will learn to use the toilet pretty quickly. My daughter loves these Pull Ups more than chocolate chip cookies and I've had a hard time of her letting go.
