That One Time I Got a Job and Totally Neglected My Blog

I’d be lying if I said a certain amount of guilt hasn’t kicked in. My memory is the equivalent of apples that have been mashed into sauce… with a little spilled on the floor and gobbled up by the dog… never to return. In a sense, my blog is our “book” of memories, our baby […]

Adventures At The Patch – No Babies. No Barf. No Bandaids. Success!

Last year, I delivered a super sentimental post about our adorable first trip to the pumpkin patch. Everyone was like… awww. Well, I am happy to report that this year’s trip, while tons of fun and with plenty of adorable, picture perfect moments, was equally filled with hysterical memories. We invited a whole pile of family […]

Calling All Baby Bumps (and Former Bump Club Members)

Hey MD/DC Metro Mommas – Looking for something awesome to do this weekend? Join me on Sunday, October 12th for Due Date, All Things Baby, at Port Discovery in Baltimore! I’m attending as one of their VIP Mommy Bloggers (whoop whoop… because I’m so famous and stuff) and I really really hope to see some […]

DIY Fine Motor Sensory Play – Without Spending a Dime!

I’m not about to drop $20 on a toy to help teach my kid fine motor skills… and you shouldn’t either. Grab some small toys (like Legos, the tops of those baby food squeeze pouches) and a container with a hole in the lid (empty wipes containers, coffee canisters with a hole cut in the […]

Tricks to Being Productive with a Toddler Around

I have read books, blogs, and articles written by mothers who divulge their secret ways of managing to get work done. Some take their kids to fast food restaurants with big plastic play places… where $3 of overly processed fried food (Wait… McDonald’s has apples now.. so that’s good… right?) and germ infested equipment will […]

Mischievous Masterpiece

Sweet-Cheeks climbs up to the table with her coloring book and opens the bin of markers. Munchie is playing quietly in the living room. Taking advantage of this rare moment, I slide into a chair, flip open my laptop, and pull up my email. I glace over my screen to check on the troops. All clear. I […]

Mommy and Daddy Haven’t Slept in Days… Because Sleep Cycles Are a Cruel Joke and the Work of the Devil, Himself

I am throwing my hands in the air and calling BS on this whole godforsaken sleep cycle routine nonsense. Flip my tiddlywink pancakes and call me a hoggobblin, because I’m ferocious, sleep deprived, and spent the better portion of my night being kicked in the face by a tiny ninja in our bed. “Leave him in […]

Mom, I Need a Moment… This Ice Cream is Heavenly.

The warmth of Summer is in the air (because in Maryland, we got about two weeks of Spring this year), which can only mean one thing. It’s time for ice cream. Now, while some people will hob-flob around their ice cream choices… I crave a very specific “start of Summer” treat. Chocolate and vanilla swirl […]

Pregnancy Flashback: Breakdancing Baby

While sorting through some old files, I stumbled upon this gem. A friend was having some Mommas-To-Be over and they were going to create birth art. (Here, let me Google that for you.) Most of the birth art that I had seen were beautiful forms of artistic expression. Since I wasn’t feeling very beautiful or […]

Public Sandbox? Oh Yes I Did.

Yesterday afternoon, we met some friends at the park. It started off like any other park playdate… the boys were in the swings. The other mom and I were chatting about sunscreens that protect you from the sun, while leaching cancer causing chemicals into your skin that will slowly destroy your body. Pleasant afternoon conversation, […]
