My Best Baby Food Making Tips!

Riley Eating Baby Food I thought that maybe on this Toddler Tuesday, I would travel off the beaten path of cute baby pics and

videos, to bring you a few tips regarding making your own baby food at

home. You see, somewhere along the way I got it into my head that I

would never serve Riley any store bought baby food. I had always heard

how expensive that stuff was and how easy making your own baby food

really is. Also, I…

How to Build and Use Tables in Your Blog!

and even in posts. What you can accomplish with the use of tables is

amazing and I think it is a tool that every blogger should be familiar

with...so here we go! (As a matter of fact, I used…

It's Official...I'm the Mother of a TODDLER!

Riley and Mommy Yesterday, a funny thing finally occurred to me…my baby is officially past the baby stage! It is a melancholy realization for me because I think all parents hang on

in some form or fashion, to that tiny, precious, helpless little

creature that you helped bring into this world. I know that, to me,

part of my daughter Riley will always be that little baby, no matter how

old she gets. But, where do you actually draw the line between a baby

and a toddler? Some…

Banning the Dictionary

I read a story a few weeks back about a school district in California pulling all copies of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary from its libraries because a parent complained the dictionary was being used to look up "age inappropriate" words by students. When I read this story I literally laughed out loud.



Banning the dictionary? Really?



Let me start by saying, I'm all for keeping things age appropriate. When our kids were younger, we were some of those weird parents…

Driving Lessons

It sounded like a good idea at the time.



I had read an article about these super-cool magnetic bumper stickers, CAUTION NEW DRIVER, and thought to myself. What a brilliant idea! Whenever I'm having my newly permitted child practice driving skills, I'll just slap it onto the back of the ol' van. Then all the other kindly drivers will be instantaneously aware and think to themselves, "Oh, look. How sweet, a new driver. I'll give him a nice, wide berth so he has plenty of room as he…

For the rest of you, if you recall, I left off in my story with the hand model who had just moved in behind us.



Well, I noticed whenever my hubs was outside working in the yard with the kids, the hand model would always come up to the fence for a chat or bearing an invitation to a pool party she…

Scholarships

Once our daughter's high school play finished up in the fall, she tried unsuccessfully to get a job. You'd think retail shops would've at least been hiring temporary help in preparation for the holiday season. But, no.



So we decided that instead of looking for a job, her new job would be applying for college scholarships. Ideally, she's devoting around 10 hours a week—the same hours an outside-the-home part-time job would require—applying for scholarships.



Initially we… Continue

Need Advice - Content Balance on Your Site - Your life vs Product Reviews/Giveaways

Recently, I posted a product review and received several posts from my readers that they were either leaving or not happy that I was posting so many product reviews versus posts about my life. Thats why they were there to read about my life.



I admit that I did not start my site to get free products or get invited to events, it just evolved organically that I began getting invited to do these things.I admit that the events/products review did seem to be taking up more of my posts… Continue

Earth Promise: Green Your Mama

Environmentally friendly gifts are all the rage these days, but with the economy still dipping, you can still show Mom how thankful you are. Here are a few ideas that will let Mom know you not only adore her, but Mother Earth as well.



First and foremost, keep in mind what Mom’s hobbies are. Does she like to curl up with a good book? Purchasing books from a second-hand book store is not only a financially great idea, but applies the reusing thought process. Like Netflix’s movie rental… Continue
