(Stay) Cool Mom Tip of the Week!

By |January 29th, 2015|KIDS|

Yes, I did just refer to myself as cool!  Staying cool as a mom takes some effort in my opinion.  There is a lot more going on with a little person (or two or three or more?!) in one's life.  Especially as a mother.  It takes help!  From family, from a nanny, from daycare/preschool-- these ...

We returned not too long ago from a fantastic family trip to France.  Napper and I hemmed and hawed over the concept of the long (and expensive) flights, the jet lag, and if the whole adventure would be more fun than aggravation with a ten month old baby.  We finally just pulled the trigger and ...

By |April 16th, 2014|HOME, KIDS|

I can't believe it's been 9 months since baby Ever arrived in the world! Reading this now after he is here I realize even more so just how thankful I am that I had a really positive birth experience- yes, it was a scheduled cesarean as that was the safest and best choice for us ...
