Bad mommy moments, we all have them
I’m sure I can’t be the only mom who occasionally has bad mommy moments. Moments when you feel like you must be a terrible mom based on something your child does or says in response to your words or actions. I had one of these moments recently and it really made me feel like crap.... Read more »

The hide and seek game no parent wants to play

The hide and seek game no parent wants to play
Before I became a parent, I had so many opinions on what parents should and shouldn’t do, and what I’d make sure I always did once I became a mom. Over the last two and a half years, my perception has changed completely. I guess that’s why people don’t like to take advice from people... Read more »

Letters to a new mom: all advice isn't good for you...

Are toddler activities a waste of money?
I originally asked myself this question as I eagerly signed my not-quite two year old up for tumbling tots gymnastics classes at the YMCA.

Last weekend, I took the kids on a trip to the Shedd Aquarium, I myself hadn’t been in years.

There's no girl or boy in toy.....
I find it funny that every single time an issue is on my mind,  I end up coming across an article of some sort on the topic. I recently noticed that Go-2-baby is fascinated with Caillou. She walks around the house saying his name, gets excited when she sees a photo of him and even... Read more »
