I love to pass down to my daughter things that I used to have when I was a little girl. It's like I'm sharing a tiny piece of my history with her. For example, she has my old baby ring that she wears on a necklace, as well as some of my old baby clothes that she uses to dress up her stuffed animals. And recently, she hit the ultimate jackpot when my mom came across my old Raggedy Ann doll up in the attic. She was so excited to have…Continue

Do you eat dinner together as a family every night? No? That's OK.
Lots of families don't have the time or ability to have the entire family sit down and eat dinner, and it is causing them guilt. This post by Abigail Carroll suggests that when it comes to dinner, "perhaps it's…

Hopefully by now you've seen this really great gif that shows the most popular baby girl's names since 1960 (in the U.S.). If not, please take a look at it here; it's a fascinating view of how name popularity spans the country.…

** It takes me three WEEKS to recover from three NIGHTS of going out.

I remember the day we changed my son's car seat to a forward-facing position: It was on his first birthday and he had reached the seat's height and weight limit (we actually got him a new seat and installed it on his birthday). He was so excited to see out the front windshield, and as we drove around, I could see him straining to see more of the road.…Continue

We all know by now that stupid situations are drawn to me like white on rice. I honestly don't seek them out. They just somehow always find me. And this probably explains why my 2012 SUV accidentally found its way into an antique auto show over this past weekend. Only me, right??!…Continue

My son is my favorite child. He is also my only child, so I have no problems writing that sentence. But parents of multiple children may experience guilt when identifying one of their children as their "favorite."
This is a tough subject, but let's be honest here and think back to your own childhood.…Continue

It's true what they say (whoever 'they' are) that every pregnancy is different. With my two boys, I was the three H's: Healthy, Happy and Horny. But, then again not having Aunt Flow come to town for 9 months makes everyone happy! There were no complications with my babies or the births, which was awesome. 9 min of pushing the first time, and 11 min the second time made these boys say hello world! This time around, the hubs and I did extensive reasearch on how to have a girl. Ovulation times,…Continue

When I was little and I wanted to talk with my brother, I would yell for him (Sorry, Mom). To cut back on the noise, my parents eventually installed an intercom system (we lived in a big three-story house) so we could stop yelling for each other and start buzzing each other instead. That lasted about a week, and then we went back to standing at the bottom of the stairs yelling each other's names.…Continue

Hurrah! You did it! You are twenty weeks pregnant!
Congratulations on reaching this important milestone on your first ride on the pregnancy roller coaster. You have just ricocheted out of the loopy and bendy bits of the ride and embarked upon the long, steep climb before the sheer vertical drop.
Having suffered through the early stages…Continue

Once upon a time, I was a clean person.
I wore freshly laundered clothes, happily bereft of stains and pulls and holes. I washed and blow dried my hair at least twice a week, with the added goodness of a straightener and styling product thrown in from time to time for good measure. Ablutions abounded - brushing, flossing, plucking, cleansing,…Continue

In my house, the poop and the fan need no introduction. They are quite familiar with each other, especially when my husband is out of town. Because that's precisely the time that things tend to go very wrong. And usually, it's right at bedtime -- you know, when I've had just about all the fun I can take for one…Continue

If you haven't heard of Rainbow Looms by now, well, then, you've probably been living under a rock. They are literally EVERYWHERE, and chances are, you may even be wearing one of the bracelets right now. My daughter and all her friends have been making them like it's their job, and my car could practically autopilot itself to Michael's to buy the replacement bands.…Continue
