In the wee hours of the night, as I rocked my littlest guy to sleep, my mind began to wander and I started to think about how things have changed since my oldest boys were babies. See, I'm a pushin' 40 Momma again to a baby - with an 8 and almost 12 yr old...and, let me tell you - A LOT has changed. The gadgets are cooler, safety regulations are completely different and everything is more expensive. But, as I rocked and reminisced, I realized one of the biggest differences…Continue

So I had THE question asked of me by my 6 year old daughter. You know the one, the one that turned me into a awkward and uncomfortable teenager. "Mommy, how does the baby get in a Mommy's belly?" She asks me while we are drawing at the art table. Her brothers were napping, so this Mommy and daughter bonding just took a whole big turn.
I panicked, what do I say? What is age appropriate? I want to give her the right…

Ok, here's the scenario....you are pregnant - maybe your first, maybe your fourth and you see a cutie bootie in a...cloth diaper. Now, here's the deal - at first you think it's just a diaper cover, there is no way a cloth diaper could be so cute! Where are the bunchy prefolds, plastic covers and diaper pins?? Velcro and snaps, mustache and chevron prints? Are you kidding me? Oh, I've got to get in on this! And you…
