Make a snowman with your own snowman kit! Fun activity for kids.

It snowed here big-time two days ago and we had so much fun playing outside! I had just bought L a small shovel at the mall as a treat after his dentist appointment (we made it through another difficult one) because I know how much he loves helping Daddy shovel the driveway.

And I got to make a snowman for the first time in about 25 years! Two years ago I bought this cute snowman kit at a sale at a local school. The kids had made many of these…

Extended Breastfeeding Past the Toddler Age

Today is quite a special day — I have been breastfeeding my son for 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks, and 3 days. Yay for extended breastfeeding!



When I started breastfeeding, I didn’t have a goal in mind of how long I wanted to do it.

Motherhood: Mismatched Socks and Reheating Coffee

Not Me! Monday



I did not wear a white and a black woolen sock to New York City the other day. Uh, yes I did. I was invited by Hasbro to a blogger event before they officially opened their doors for the New York Toy Fair (look out for the extensive blog post on that). I could only find one of each, it was 6 in the morning when I got dressed, and nobody was going to notice anyway. I could have worn other socks -- I have plenty -- but these are my… Continue

If you could have a drug-free birth, would you want it?

Are you pregnant and want a natural birth? Then you'll want to read this!



My next New York City Moms blog post is up and running! It’s called Natural Birth, Duggar Style. This article is generate some interesting comments (and heated discussion!).

Playing With Trains at Midnight

Hmm, time for Not Me! Monday. You want honesty? You got it! My next New York City Moms blog article was not overdue. I finally finished it this morning and it’s in the cue. I’ll let you know when it gets published. It’s called “Natural Birth, Duggar Style.” I do not still owe someone a book review, have to watch a video about breastfeeding and write the review, and manage 1781…

Our New Vegetarian, Kinder Diet -- Week 1

It’s been about a week that we dramatically changed things here in the Bleasdale kitchen. After reading Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet and watching the movie Food Inc., my husband decided that he wants to radically change his eating habits to hopefully get rid of the pain he has been in for months.



Eliminated meat:

I went to the grocery…
