My toddler is a sponge that I’m trying to fill up (+ keep clean)

October 22, 2013

This post is sponsored by Too Small To Fail. As I was dropping my little guy, now two, off at preschool this morning, I realized that I’m gonna have to start censoring the morning talk radio. Bummer.

Link love: Big kid version

October 17, 2013

Because the worlds of motherhood are quite disparate — the early years with all the quiet moments, lost sleep, body issues for mom, versus the school years, when I finally understood all the references to carpools, soccer schedules, and LEGOs — I feel like I need to call out the theme in this round-up of […]

How to put newborn twins in a Moby wrap. Sort of.

September 27, 2013

I don’t typically have patience for long videos on the web, but this tickled me because it represents such a funny moment in time. First, although this new dad barely knows what he’s doing, he felt compelled to make a “How to” video to show off his skill. Again, he’s not a master of this […]

Love or shove: weighted baby swaddling blanket?

August 19, 2013

I’m a huge believer in swaddles to help babies get more sleep. Huge! I realize some of you fall into the “my baby never liked the swaddle” camp, but that’s not my issue. I swaddled my babies each for 3-4 months whether they protested or not, but I don’t know what to think about this new […]
