Don’t let that cute smile and those stubby little hands fool you. Your toddler, my toddler – they are all on mission to destroy us. Their goal – to wear us down, weaken our defenses and slowly gain full control of the household. Don’t believe me? Not into conspiracy theories? You think this sounds like…Continue

My husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage! Crazy, right?!
Well, we wanted to do something special to celebrate but our youngest was only four months and I’d be breastfeeding; so we decided spend our 10 year anniversary trip... with the kids. Not overly romantic, I know, but sometimes you gotta make the best of the situation. An all inclusive Jamaican resort was our destination of choice. We’d never been there before so it would still be special and it was all inclusive, which…Continue
I wrote a blog post earlier in the week on shows from our time that has been forgotten and our children must watch. Weeeelllllll, I am on vacation in Alabama visiting family. My cousin, Isabell age 10, came to me with an idea. She stated that since I wrote a blog about shows children must watch, it is only right that I write a blog about children’s movies that Parents…Continue

Mommy,” she moves toward me. Her gaze is locked, voice shaky. “My throat feels funny."
“Funny, like a scratchy tickle or funny like you can't swallow?"
“Just really funny,” Veronica shrugs her shoulder.
“Can you swallow?” I ask the important question.
She nods her head, “Yes.”
Shit, what did she eat? and I immediately act giving her a dose of…Continue
When you first think of the word "date," it's easy to assume that it involves two individuals roughly around the same age who are in some type of romantic relationship, whether new or seasoned. While this may be true, "dates" can include kids, too. (preferably not in addition to the two individuals in a romantic relationship- that's what babysitters are for!) Special outings with just one child and…Continue
lly and I wanted to do something special for Daddy, just to show him how much we love him. We sat down to brainstorm a couple ideas of what to do and finally settled on making a collage for Daddy. The collage would contain things that he really enjoys and something that describes him. Although our Daddy is one who likes to wrestle and roll around on the floor, he also really enjoys dressing up and looking nice!
Check out our finished picture and see how you can make one…Continue
When asked what I am afraid of, I will list two things: Snakes and clowns.…

To put it plain, at around three years of age, we all naturally start to understand the simple notion that if you have one apple and you add another – you…Continue

I can see the pupils dilate and the wheels begin to turn when people find out that I'm married to a gynecologist. Paranoid as this may seem, I've answered enough questions and survived too many bizarre interactions to be caught with my pants down again. My husband commenced his OB-GYN residency two weeks…Continue

I was in the store with my son, when a woman remarked at how well behaved he was being. I smiled (because I was filled with mommy happiness at the compliment) and agreed - he is a really great little guy. Then, the conversation took a turn for the worse.…Continue
