I asked for you to help us evolve this blog with some of your ideas, thoughts and comments and you certainly responded (29 comments and counting!).  I want to thank you for [...]

There are kids in our house!

The irony of my job is that I’m surrounded by kids and baby gear all day but I don’t have children of my own. Don’t get me wrong, I love kids (I even had my own babysitter’s club for close to a decade!), but I’ve only been married for 7 months and we’re just not there yet.  So, even [...]

Wondrous Wednesday #23

B and Jagger (my kids!) wear share a popsicle this Memorial Day weekend. It was a be-u-tiful holiday weekend here in PA which put everyone in a great mood. So good, in fact that these two decided to share – chocolate, no less! Ahhh- I love summer. Every Wednesday we’ll be sharing a photo showing [...]

Guest Celebrity Blogger – Actress and mom, Tori Spelling

This past January I had the pleasure of meeting Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott and baby Liam at the Boom Boom Room in LA. Of course I was in awe of meeting Tori, who before I watched religiously on Beverly Hills 90210, I loved as Screech’s nerdy girlfriend Violet on Saved By the Bell. Yes, I have [...]

Can I Freeze Time, Please?

OK.  I admit it.  I’m not a newborn baby person.  There.  I said it.  Hopefully this doesn’t put me in the “Bad Mom” category.  I love my new little Hercules and I loved Boog when he was born too.  However, I didn’t fall head over heels crazy in love with my Boog until he started [...]

Wondrous Wednesday #22

Um, Mom?  I don’t think we’ll be needing that brush anymore… Looks like Peanut, Jenn’s son (VP at longtime agency partner, Coyne), is getting a buzz for his first haircut so he can stay nice and cool this summer. (unless his stylist has already recruited him to join the military!) Every Wednesday we’ll be sharing a photo showing off a little [...]

My Fashion “Sense”

It’s commonly known that the sense of smell is the strongest sense tied to memory.  I’m going to have to disagree here – it’s certainly my “sense of fashion” that has the strongest ties to memory.  For some reason I have committed to memory, every onesie, sleeper, creeper, jumper, sweater, jacket, hat, shoe and bathing suit that my [...]
