Have you seen these little things before? They’re designed to hold pre-measured amounts of formula powder for when you’re out and about with baby. Not a bad idea! I used one of these with my exclusively formula-fed son and it came in handy.
My second baby was fed expressed breast milk, first through an [...]
When my nine-month old baby girl was in the emergency room with a spiral fracture of the right femur, we were also struggling with how to entertain our nineteen-month old son. As it got later and later in the night, I pushed a sleepy toddler in a stroller up and down the hospital corridors. [...]
Last weekend, we went to visit my grandma in her new home. It was our first time seeing her new apartment and, since we decided to make the trek on a whim, she was surprised to see us there. Happy, but surprised. After visiting with her for awhile, rearranging a table to better meet [...]
Has this ever happened to you? You’re out and about and feel your earring slip and realize… uh, oh- the back is lost. Then, if you’re like me, you spend a few fruitless moments searching around before realizing that that teeny, tiny piece of metal could be anywhere. At this point, you have two [...]
I mentioned that my husband is a big fan of Doritos. I like them sometimes too. I also have a recipe or two that call for the chips.
We do one big, monthly Aldi shopping trip. It takes an hour and a half, total, to make the drive there, so we try to get [...]
I don’t know if you have this particular custom in your neck of the woods but, here in Connecticut where I’m at, we have a habit of letting an oncoming car know that a police car lays in wait by flashing our headlights. It’s a quick “watch out- you’re going to get yourself in [...]
I completely and totally stole this idea from my big sister. What can I tell you? She’s very wise. And she doesn’t have a blog. Not long ago, I had some 80-cent off coupons for, of all things, Froot Loops. We really don’t buy Froot Loops around here. So what did I do with [...]
My baby girl turns one on Saturday. Sniff. We’ll be having a little family gathering and giving her some little gifts. I’ll be making some cake balls a la Bakerella because, while not a sweets lover, my littlest child loves them. Because she is my second daughter (and I have nieces), we do not [...]
It was a hard day.
A trying day.
Just one of those days.
You don’t need the list of what went wrong… you’ve had your own “days like that”.
With Daddy many, many states away and a dinner that went awry, by the time 6:15 rolled around, I was tempted to throw on a [...]
I don’t want it to sound like I’m forever complaining to companies and businesses because I am not. Quite frankly, I’m not all that picky and I also don’t have oodles of extra time on my hands. However, there are certain things that are just unacceptable… like when the laundry detergent stained a whole [...]
