Tips for the Perfect Princess Party

How many of us share the same conversation with our 3 year old daughters, “I want to have a PRINCESS party mommy!” And we ask ourselves “when will the princess phase end?” Well we just hosted Bear’s Third Birthday Party and it was all out PRINCESS. (actually it was Princess & Pirates – so her [...]

Hand-Me-Downs or “Early Sharing Opportunities?”

As I quickly approach my due date for #2, I find myself agonizing over the fact that I simply haven’t done as much to prepare for this one as I did when Lovey was on the way. Every once in a while, I have to stop from “beating myself up” for not repainting the nursery [...]

Why I Need to Know the Gender of My Baby

Anyone who knows me knows I am a planner. Last minute things make me anxious. Therefore, I buy birthday presents ahead of time (sometimes 3 months ahead of time), pre-order anything that I can (birthday invitations, birth announcement envelopes, etc.), book my birthday party months ahead of time (yeah, PP’s birthday party has been booked [...]

Hooray for haircuts!

A while back I mentioned Gus’ aversion to haircuts. I guess it has gotten to the point that he no longer can stand it. Just this morning before school he said “Uh…” (see, every statement in the eighth grade begins with “Uh…” or “Huh?” Articulate bunch) Anyway, he said “Uh…yeah…I think I’m ready for that [...]

Hi ho, hi ho, It’s back to work I go.

Maternity leave. Short term disability for pregnancy. FMLA. It doesn’t matter what you call it, the time off and away from the office after baby has to come to an end for all of us work-outside- the-home moms at some point. I had such illusions of grandeur of the things I would accomplish while I was [...]

How Can I Trick a (9 Month) Fruitatarian?

I admit it. I have been spoiled with the eating habits of Boog, my almost 3-year old son. He’s always eaten pretty much everything that was put in front of him (when asked if he wants Brussels sprouts for dinner he often yells “Yum! Brussel Sprouts!” Seriously.) I think his only eating downfall is that [...]
