My pregnant friend just tried out a new OB (who had come recommended from another friend).At this particular office, they have all the patients weigh themselves individually, and even test their own…Continue
My little guy got four stitches in his forehead about six weeks ago, from a fall at a friend's house :( It's healed and now we're just dealing with the scar (it's bad, he looks like Harry Potter!)My…Continue
Hi all! I'm a married SAHM with a little boy, who turned 3 on September 24. We just relocated to Seattle from NYC. I'm originally from the Midwest, one of six kids (I have no idea how my mother did it!).
Christmas and New Year's are behind us, phew! I enjoy celebrating and being with family, but we all know there's no vacation from being a mom.

We all get together at least twice a week, so there's plenty of "snack payback time." Not that anyone's keeping score...I don't think? I'm not anyway. (I guess I…Continue
