Run or walk errands for exercise. You’ll get your 10,000 steps and you might get all your stuff done. Good thing the joggers have big baskets.
I am the first person to delete the blurry pictures and the closed-eyes pictures from my computer. Despite what my MIL might think, I make a strong effort to edit what I share with the world. But silly baby faces? LMAO. What about the funny, goofy faces? Do those get chucked out too? Well, how […]
Find a good time between baby’s naps and enjoy a brunch out with your partner or some friends. You want to find a place with wide enough aisles between tables that you can wheel a stroller or walk with a toddler, no fancy table cloths, and a changing table in the restroom. Ambient noise is […]
Those bike trailer thingy-doos are cool, right? My friend Erin has one and it can carry two kids. So fun! Room enough for gear, too.
During my first pregnancy, I learned the term “NMS” on the BabyCenter message boards. This means “not my style,” as in, “You want to decorate your baby’s room in a rockabilly theme?

I never really cared much for beer (which doesn’t mean I haven’t consumed my fair share of it). I kept trying, though, because a lot of women who I think are cool have a taste for beer. Then something weird happened: I grew a baby inside me, birthed him and began to breastfeed. Next thing […]
WANTED! UNEMPLOYED BABIES I saw the ad below for baby scientists in my neighborhood parent newsletter and it inspired me to think of more ways to find work for infants. A few ideas I have for getting your baby a job are: Baby doll: Seek out an expecting couple you know and offer to let […]
It makes me and Ryan feel like Real Parents when we take Julian on outings like Tilden Park’s Little Farm. Animals and their sounds is one of our favorite topics of conversation with Julian. Of course at this age, our babies barely get what’s going on, but showing them the live animals on a farm […]
