Last week I received products to review for my first review and giveaway to the first person who buys a cloth diaper from me once my shop opens, possibly at the end of the week.
So I opened the box and was surprised to see, not… Continue

Imagine a lovely mom n’ pop restaurant on a beachy island. Perfect ambiance, honest food, good service. It’s also the last day of your family vacation, so you’re looking forward to a little celebrating at the dinner table.
The tomatoes on the salad are ruby-red and farm-fresh, the newly baked brown bread steams with delight, the shrimp are gianormous and cooked perfectly and the crab bisque….ahh, that sensuous, mouth-watering, swooningly-delicious fresh soup. All is peaceful… Continue

I have taught sign language to my son since he was six months old and I have to say it is a great tool in communication. My son started signing back at 8 months of age and his first sign was "milk". He would successfully sign this back to me when he was hungry and it was great in curbing any kind of frustration with not know why he was crying, that and routine schedules I believe have helped greatly. I won't sit here and say that my son doesn't throw some pretty good tantrums, he's 18 months… Continue

So in our quest to have the perfect weekend with a barbecue with the in laws....it didn't turn out that great...at least not for my husband. Well the barbecue turned out great thanks to my sister in Law and Her Husband who brought over their grill because ours would have exploded. (Read More)

His nose wrinkles as he grips the head of the elephant toy. Then he rips the head off and says "Ah Oh". He looks down at the headless corps in satisfaction, then up at me with pride in what he had done. (Read More)

This summer, I'm taking another round of "swimming" classes with my toddler. For her, it's a way to get comfortable in the water; I know she will not master the art of the backstroke but she will learn to float on her back.
But for me, it's a lesson on what not to wear, what to bring and what to really do in the water with my tot! (Yes moms and dads, if you want your child to blow bubbles in the pool then you too must insert face in water!)
Come share… Continue

Things “They” Never Tell You…
As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on… Continue

I just love this photo … As much as we may not want to admit it; there truly is a little bugger and devil in all our children. It does not matter how cute and adorable we think they may be at the time because we can't loose sight of the fact discipline is so very important when raising children. We all can attest a child's unacceptable behavior can get out of hand very quickly when it is ignored and not addressed immediately. They are extremely bright… Continue

We are deep in the Terrible Twos Jungle. Just a few days ago we passed the half-way mark much to the relief to the majority of us who are on this safari. We would have celebrated that momentous occasion
but just as we passed the mark the Two Year Old decided she had an idea
of her own: a temper tantrum. Why? Mommy dared to shower.
Mommy tried to explain to the Two Year Old that it was fine, that although Mommy was a bit stinky, the idea of having a waterfall in the middle of… Continue

Research shows that participation in musical games has many positive effects on kids.
When kids sing, they organize vowels and consonants in a rhythmic pattern which helps to build language and vocabulary skills.
Musical games also help to develop kids' fine and gross motor skills, resulting in better coordination. Putting movement and music together uses both sides of the brain.
Of course there's other reasons to introduce music into your kids' lives: It's just… Continue

Some playgroups like to structure their time. Some moms enjoy planning activities and learning opportunities while others appreciate the time to chill, watch the kids play, but otherwise stay out of their way and have some “mom time.” Which is better? It’s not really a matter of better, but there is something to be said for unstructured play. Scienceblogs.com recently featured an article based on a study published Development Psychology. The study found that unstructured playgroups found a… Continue

The best parenting help in the world would be if each toddler came with an individual owner's manual to assist parents in the trying times of toddlerhood. Sure there is plenty of helpful advice out there from other moms and dads and professionals, but every child is different, with a different temperament so usually parents end up on a trial and error basis when using parenting help to assist in raising their toddler. Much of parenting is trial and error and not giving up until you find the… Continue

The British Journal of Psychiatry has published the findings of a new research study from the Australian National University. After studying 1,241 women, scientists concluded that women's memories remained as good during and after pregnancy as before. Prof Helen Christensen who led the study said "women need to be less automatic in their willingness to attribute common memory lapses to a… Continue
