I love everything about Spring. The cool crisp air, the gorgeous blooming trees and flowers and the longer days. Spring is when I do my annual home deep clean. This year though I am taking a different approach. I'm starting my Spring cleaning with me first. I shared in a previous post that I…Continue

Last night, my husband and I caught about three minutes of the show "Toddlers and Tiaras." There was a pretty little girl in a lot of make up, smiling and standing before a crowd, her mother proudly looking on with tears in her eyes.
"When I'm in my make up," the little girl said, "I feel pretty."
And she looked pretty. I certainly wasn't scandalized. It looked like any other mother / daughter activity to me.
The next shot was a teaser for the next segment, in…

One of the most pressing and vulnerable points of online shopping is a sizing issue: getting the right size or the pain of NOT getting it right. The sizing issue is so frustrating we decided to ask a pro: Stormy Sweitzer, owner and co-founder of SizeTracker, gave us 3 of the biggest reasons why kidshing sizes and fit vary from brand…Continue

You will drag your…Continue

I haven't done a crafty project in a while, and I thought, "It's about time you did one, people are getting bored over here."
So here goes... my first attempt to make my own jewelry. (Other than that one time I thought I was cool in 8th grade and made myself a button bracelet. Haha. I was lame.)
I have been lusting over this bracelet from…

Playing on Facebook can get you a job - I'm not talking about Farmville, though I'm sure there must be something for which those skills can be used. While Facebook is thought of by many as a way to pass the time, the social network has broad business applications if you use it right. And it's only one of many networking, aggregating, blogging and mini-blogging sites out there, all of which can be used to pad your resume.…

Some days it’s more important to let the laundry go undone, the floors un-mopped and the dishes left in the sink. Today was one of those days and, since the weather was simply glorious, I opted to take the girls for a walk to the store and push back making dinner. In all honesty, we really did not need anything, but the dog and Baby Girl #1 both wanted a walk. So instead of starting a nice dinner, I defrosted shrimp while we walked to the store as the sun set. Once home, I made dinner in…Continue

Social media has revolutionized what it means to be a mother. Sure, the basics of mothering remain the same throughout the ages, but with all the information of the internet at our fingertips, new theories catch steam quickly, unsafe practices are brought to light in front of large audiences, and people can pick and choose which parenting methods work best for them in real time, as these methods are being used and tested by others.
One of the largest drawbacks to staying at home…

So I finally caved and bought my daughter a Snuggie. Yes, yes, you know, those gigantic blanket things with sleeves.
Personally, I think they look just plain silly, but she's been wanting one for ages. And not just any Snuggie, of course, but the "Peace and Love" Snuggie with multi-colored peace signs all over it, if you can dig that, man.
She keeps telling me it is "soooo comfortable," and that I just have to try it on.
Absolutely not. First of all, if…Continue
