Before I was even a mother, I became interested in babywearing. A friend from high school wore her babies in all sorts of carriers at a time when I’d only seen an occasional Baby Bjorn. There's nothing I like more than snuggling...
I blame the pandemic. I used to be that person who loves to travel — especially by plane — so much that even turbulence created a feeling of thrilling excitement. I think I still love to travel, and I am...
Well, eight months later, we are still living through a pandemic. We are still physically distancing from others (I hope) and still wearing masks (I really hope!). Now, the days are getting shorter, darker, and colder, and the holidays are...
When my husband and I started dating, he had the absolute worst college roommate — ever. John had no regard for cleanliness and hygiene. He never did the dishes, he bought new underwear instead of doing laundry, and he left food...
Content warning: child sexual abuse I’ve wanted to write about this for a while but faced serious writer’s block, which I have concluded means I’ve been afraid of writing it the wrong way and getting negative feedback. But that’s exactly...
  I finally saw the latest in a long line of Cinderella stories and I have to say that I absolutely loved it! It was simple, colorful, magical, and that dress was perfection!  As an added bonus, a new Frozen...

Let's talk about winter. Have you seen your kids become stir crazy and experience cabin fever? Try living with us. I never knew what hyperactivity was really like until seeing it in my son. Unless we're on vacation or out and about, things are just dang hard, ya'll. We never get the in between, where a kid will sit during screen time or do a craft for 10 or 15 minutes. Instead, we get the need to have the TV/tablet on while juggling a whole bunch of other things simultaneously. Having a kid who despises crafts or seated projects indoors is definitely hard, especially when it is super cold like Boston can be. Activities with continuous movement are what we need.
We're at an all-time low in the mainstream coffee world. Unicorn frappuccino, anyone? What is the world coming to? And who had the misfortune of having to write that press release? When we moved into our first house, we had no furniture...
If your house is anything like mine, you have bags of clothes your children have outgrown. Shoes they only wore once, or a sweater or two with the tags still on that you bought right before their last growth spurt. After...

She knows she’s got me. It’s apparent by her toothy grin. Even when she arches her back, bends her body like Neo to the...
