When I started here, I was stunned to find out about all the festivities, decorating and hoopla (and non-productivity) that goes into October 31st in this building. Entire departments are turned into completely different places - we’ve had [...]

As a new[er] mom, I long to create my own traditions and memories- I know most parents do. When it comes to Halloween, most of my memories are centered around [...]

Baby Journals & Lifestage Charm Bracelets…you have to do it!

Baby Journals & Lifestage Charm Bracelets…you have to do it! For all new parents-to-be, if there is any advice I could share it would be to start a baby journal immediately.

Might have been at home with the scissors or clippers, or maybe at one of those great shops that specialize in kids haircuts (I think haircut should be singular there because most kids styles look the same – a bowl cut) At any rate, their focus is on cutting kids hair.

My Favorite Show–now playing on the video monitor!

I used to think that people that used a video baby monitor were the more “paranoid” parents and I definitely do not consider myself paranoid at all. Though I didn’t start out with a video monitor, when I started to use the Graco Digital Video imonitor, I became a believer.
