Baby and beach is not always a perfect combination. Sandy and hot with no place to safely put baby down. Check out this hack: use a travel crib!
This is a list of flexible jobs for stay-at-home moms, and I’ll acknowledge that for some women, none of them will be a fit. It’s not a list of flexible jobs for women who are lawyers, pilots, pharmacists, or product managers. The idea here is that there are some opportunities to leverage technology to earn […]
Whew. We just spent the morning dodging toddlers chasing bubbles while holding onto a freshly brewed cup of coffee and generally enjoying the company of our Bay Area community embracing one of our favorite people, Asha Dornfest. It was as perfect as it sounds. Big thanks to the Rec Room Cafe for hosting our crowd […]
When we were getting close to being a diaper-free household after ten years of wiping butts, I got a little carried away. I found myself trying more and more unorthodox potty-training experiments in lieu of good old-fashioned patience, hoping to find the secret trick for my youngest son. If you’re at the end of your toilet-training rope, here are […]
Easier than stickers on clothing or blankets, we love this app for making cute photos for instagram, your walls, or a “baby book” (whatever that is!) When I was a little girl and my stepmom was pregnant with my sister, my dad took full-length profile photos of her changing body each month. Or at least […]

When I was a rookie mom, my friend Julie advised me to put several layers of crib sheets on top of one another every time I changed the sheet, so that when one became wet, the sleepy parent who arrived on the scene could simply peel off the top layers and save themselves from digging […]
I loved Santa Claus as a child. Loved. In fact, I made sure to stick little gifts in my mom’s stocking to make sure that she still believed in Santa (just in case she was really SC, I didn’t want her to find out.) I want my kids to love him every bit as much. […]
I’ve heard about many different families traditions on ringing in the New Year and I want to move that discussion over here so I can revisit it as my children grow older. As a little kid, I remember listening to the annual countdown of the top music of the year and watching Dick Clark drop […]
One way to make sure you get out of the house with your baby is to make a commitment to be somewhere on a certain day, at a particular time. Taking a class can do that to you for you. Maybe this sounds like your idea of hell, sitting in a circle, singing folk songs […]
