I am the proud mother of two boys, ages 4 and 16 months old. Though they look similar, they are as different as night and day. Even my pregnancies were different. (I will share that experience on another blog.) I had my first baby at age 39 and my little guy at 42. Some had the opinion that maybe I was too mature (OLD) to have a baby. Though they are entitled to…Continue

I used to make a lot of money, though I didn't realize it at the time. That 20/20 hindsight can really burn some days. I was doing really well for myself and for my family financially, but I wasn't happy. I wasn't in love with my job anymore, and I tried to compensate by spending the money I was making. Writing at Starbucks, yoga, the gym, spas, masks, and spoiling my family. When we found out we were expecting another little one, I decided I needed to make a change. I know…

Three years ago I thought it would be a great idea to create a blog. I had no idea what I was doing. I logged in to Blogger and went through the steps. It was easy to get started but then I was stuck looking at a blank canvas not knowing what direction to take this new project.
Over the years my blog has become something more than what I originally thought…

There's this weird thing that happens when you get pregnant: Everywhere you go, you see other pregnant people and parents pushing strollers. Granted, those people were always there before, but once you become pregnant yourself - join their ranks - you finally start noticing them on a massive scale.…Continue
I have three friends from college who live nearby and had babies around the same time as me. Three of us delivered the same week (one was checking out of the same hospital and was two rooms away the day I checked in) and the fourth delivered a few weeks later.
We had two girls and two…Continue
I have been on a Huge Journey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Since I started this blog 2 years ago I have lost over 60 pounds. This was left over baby weight. I gained 96 pounds while pregnant with Mason. I lost the first 30 (the amount I should have gained) in the first 3 weeks. If I had not been gorging on food my entire pregnancy I would have been back to my Pre baby weight within…

Me and my husband, we love to eat! :-D We love to cook (well, my husband does, I just bake), we love to go out for a delicious dinner and when choosing a travel destination, good food is a must.
Compared to other parents who I hear are complaining that they haven’t eaten outbecause of their baby for months, I must…Continue

Every parent wonders about how to make their toddler just a tad better than the rest. Even there are times when your child behaves badly at home but nicely outside. Moms.com has the answer to this. What your child does is that they test their limits with you. This is because your baby loves you and knows that you love them back equally. But don’t let all this love flowing in the middle stop you from getting the best out of your child. Here are a few…Continue
Finding out you’re pregnant brings contrasting emotions – joy, excitement, anticipation and maybe a bit of fear. There’s a lot to think about and plan for, and understanding your rights in terms of work and your care can help you relax and enjoy the months of waiting for your baby.
One of the worries you may have is about your rights at work. How and when to tell your employer you are expecting a baby, how much you’ll get paid, how much time you’ll have at home with your new arrival,…Continue

When my cupcake was born, her activity was restricted to just the place where she was resting. She, like any other newborn, was an obedient child and was inquisitive with her eyes, trying to focus on things that could see or wanted to see. A lovely phase...and then came the phase of discovery, she learnt to roll over pick up things and sit around. Since her reach was still limited there was little to worry about. But with the crawling phase, everything and anything was within her reach.…Continue

On August 12, my mom sent me a seemingly random text message that said:
I named you after Lauren Bacall. Cool. Babe.
First of all, can we just pause here to recognize how suave my Mom is? She's a pretty crafty chick and an amazing woman.…
