Okay, so we all know girls typically play with dolls and boys typically play with trucks. But what about Legos? Who is supposed to play with those? If you've been shopping lately you may have seen the new line Lego has created for girls. Lego thinks it has done something great, but not everyone agrees. Why? Check out my blog at…Continue

I never thought getting someone to do their business in the potty would be hard. I always heard how difficult potty training can be but I always thought parents were exaggerating. Nope, they weren't. It's hard, yep, and frustrating might I add. My master plan was to have my two and a half year old potty trained by Christmas. Go ahead and laugh. Santa Claus has left the building and we are not potty trained.
My daughter actually did her first deed in the potty months ago at…
If you've turned on a TV in the past few days or read anything online or in the paper, you know breastfeeding has been making headlines once again. This time they're not talking about the benefits, but rather where and when a woman can feed her child in public. It's all because of what happened at a Target down in Texas. A woman decided to nurse her fussy child in the women's clothing section when a few workers asked her to go to a fitting room to finish. She says some others gave her dirty…Continue
'Twas just two days before Christmas and all around my home, everyone was stirring, no one would leave me alone.
The stockings were hung over the fireplace with care, my husband used Command hooks so no marks would be left there.
Oh,how I wish the children were all snuggled all nice in their beds, they've been bathed, they've been rocked, of course they've been fed, so why do I still have visions of them sleeping dancing in my head?
Mama's in the kitchen with still a lot to do,…
They are the three words that get a lot of moms all fired up…breast is best. But, is it for everyone? On the health side of it, we all know the benefits of breastfeeding your baby. There is also the emotional aspect of that intense bonding between mother and child that a bottle of Similac or Enfamil can’t buy you. That’s probably why we feel so guilty when we can’t breastfeed or feel like we just don’t want to (the horror!). As a breastfeeding mom, I can tell you there are just some days…Continue
"Mommy, I want that...no mommy, I want that...and that...no wait, I have to have this." For the love of Christmas, this season can make you lose your mind...and a lot of money if you let it! Chances are your kids have made their lists and now you're checking them twice to see what you can afford. Right now, I'm lucky, my kids are two months and two years old. Although my two year old can now form sentences "I want (fill in the blank)", she hasn't picked up on actually…Continue
I know times are tough this year and your rent in the North Pole went up along with the cost of living. You might have also lost a bit in that 401K and you also probably had to lay off a few elves, so there are less people to make all those toys. The elves you have are probably working OT or maybe you outsourced, who knows.
Whatever the case may be, the things on my list have no assembly required and don't need batteries, so you're in the clear. I know you're…Continue
A woman spends nine months carrying a child. It's safe to say many women don't get that much time to stay home and bond with their baby once he or she is born. I've talked to a lot of women who have had to go back to work after just six weeks home. Six weeks...seriously? That's ridiculous. Let me break it down for you the way I see it. During the first two weeks after birth, your body is so beat up from being pregnant and labor that you can just about function. Add the duties of mothering…Continue
