Moving Forward By Backing Up

My laptop is on the fritz.  I am prepping myself for the day (probably soon) when I go to turn it on and it goes "poof".  Now I know there is probably some sort of technical fix to retrieve all my personal and business information but frankly hunting down a laptop will take all the extra energy and time I…

The Social Media Time Vacuum

I am totally guilty of getting sucked into Twitter.  And Facebook.  And now Pinterest.  It doesn't help that as a small business owner with a limited advertising budget, social media is a great way to meet new clients and advertise.  I may say I go on for my business, but I know I stay for the pleasure of social…

Homemade Baby Food Menu Planner

After my post "My Homemade Baby Food Making Plan" I received requests for more details into my process.  Well ask and you shall receive.  I have broken down fruits, veggies and grains into Flavors, Flats and Fillers.  In the early months I would give him a single selection (starter fruits…

An Organized Potty?!? You Betcha!

When we were visiting friends a few weekends back in Chicago, I noticed they had a great toilet seat with a built in potty chair.  The Church NextStep Toilet Seat is available at your local big box hardware store or online through Amazon and…

My Homemade Baby Food Making Plan

I've had a couple of friends recently ask me how I find the time to make homemade baby food.  I try to explain it's not necessarily a matter of finding time but making the most of the time you have available to make the food.  Which of course means I have have an organized plan when I sit down to make the food...'cause…

A Baby File



I had one of the those "If I Knew Then What I Know Now" moments at my sister's baby shower recently.  While I tried to keep our registry to what I truly thought we would need, there definitely were a few items that found their way into our collection that I look at now and think…

The Toy Dilemma

The overwhelming issue when I work with moms is too many toys in the house.  The toy manufacturers have done a fantastic job of convincing both kids and parents that they need the newest, greatest, latest, updated thing-a-ma-jig.  Despite the fact that the previous version of said thing-a-ma-jig is still…

WHAT'S THE PRICE OF YOUR MATERNITY LEAVE?

My 7 month pregnant sister just realized that she is unable to use her paid sick leave to add on to her maternity leave.  So essentially she will be only be paid for 6-8 weeks for her maternity leave.  Which all in all is better than NOT having any paid maternity leave.  But since they recently…

GUIDE TO GETTING OUT THE DOOR

We are lucky enough to have arranged our work schedules so our little guy is at home with one of us while the other parent works.  At least most of the time.  This week is the first time we had to take to him to a sitter outside of the home.  I gotta tell you, I have mad props for the moms that do this every morning. 

I sorely underestimated the amount of planning and effort it would take to arrive at both the sitter and my appointment on time.  I went to bed thinking "all I need to…

To Grandmother's House We Go

It dawned on me this morning that next week is Thanksgiving and I am going out of town with my little guy for 6 days.  Did I mention I have yet to travel with my little guy any longer than a few hours and never overnight?  I figured this would be a great time to put together a list of what needs to come with us when we're heading out of town overnight.  I spent a few days jotting down items I use for the care of my little guy on a daily basis and determined what I need to bring and what can…

Giving Thanks for Family Holidays

Ever since Martha Stewart burst onto the scene, the holiday season seems to have taken a turn for the crazy.  What used to feel like a standard family gathering can now feel like a competition for the most involved centerpiece or best twist on traditional turkey recipe.  And with all this increased effort to…

And a Baby Makes...Life Expensive

So a baby is on the way (or perhaps ANOTHER baby is on the way)!  It's so exciting to walk about the house deciding how to decorate the nursery or jump in your 2-door car for a quick run out to the closest baby store.  Until you realize "where are we gonna put this thing?"  (And by thing I lovingly mean the… Continue

My Handy Little Wristlet

I'm a new mom with ants in my pants.  Well, maybe I'm not so much ansty as busy.  Along with my newborn I have a part time job, a business to run AND I'm trying to maintain a small amount of an adult social life.  I know I am not the only mom with this kind of a schedule.  Along with changing places I am frequently…

Getting the Family On Board with Chores

When it comes to cleaning and organizing your home, sometimes it is just easier to do things yourself.  Sometimes your kids just don’t know how to do it right.  But as you know by now, your kids are little sponges and soak up habits, good and bad, quickly.  Take time out to show your kids how to complete tasks… Continue

A Back To Work Breastfeeding Bag

My lovely maternity leave came to an end this week.  The evening before I realized I had a whole new bag of goodies to lug with me back and forth on work days:  my breast pump and its accessories.  As I was packing up my bag I thought it may be a good list to include for any new moms returning to work or moms needing to take their breast pumping on the road.  Here is a list of items that I included in my bag:

  1. Pump, Cones and Pump Bottles
  2. Freezer Storage Bags for Pumped…
