Baby day is getting closer and closer. We are only a couple of weeks away and he pretty much could make his entrance into the world anytime now. My hospital bag is packed, baby's bag is packed, and now I'm turning my attention to my diaper bag. I'm so used to packing for a two-year old, I have to retrain my brain for packing for a newborn....they need so much stuff! I'm…

We all wish we could be the Perfect Mum, but the reality is very different. Just ‘Good Enough’ is perfect enough.
The Dream –
Your Breastfeeding, making home-made meals, your house is spotless, you’ve lost all the baby weight, have a full face of make-up and a new hair-do. You’ve taken up a new hobby that’s always interested you and attend mummy meetings and baby groups.
Your new bundle of joy is wonderful he/she is a baby that sleeps all night and…Continue

I wanted to say, first and foremost, thank you for taking care of my son's medical needs for his entire life. I did not attend medical school, and I'm really queasy when it comes to giving shots--*insert any and all ironic jokes here about the tattoo artist who hates needles*--so I'm…

I keep a few older videos of my son on my phone. I like to watch them and compare what he was like a few years ago to how he is today. One of the items that I notice right away is how he talks. Not necessarily how much he talks (although I notice that, too) but the way he pronounced his words. At the time I took the…Continue

Communication. At 28 years old, it's a skill I still haven't even fully developed yet. To expect a baby or toddler to master a skill that most adults haven't completely grasped yet is a recipe for disappointment. In my experience, most tantrums are caused by a toddler feeling like their wants and needs are going unheard. Since the vocabulary of wee ones is still limited, teaching our toddler sign language has saved us (at least several) arm flailing, back arching, high-pitched screeching…Continue

"So, you want to bring your kid to Europe for a one month vacation extravaganza. Sounds like fun. You're nuts." (insert eye roll)
This is the reaction I got from about 90% of the people when I told them about my summer vacation plans. Me, my daughter Phoebe, and my husband were going to Paris,…Continue
I have been experiencing I guess they call it writers block or I've really been trying to put more focus on my family than the blog or maybe just writers block. I was finding myself obsessed (shocker) with trying to post everyday.…Continue
Ever forget to put your fairy wings on and be your kids tooth fairy? Well I did.
Okay so here's my side of…Continue

I've been venturing down to the beach just about daily helping to take care of my mom and I'm required to tote along my kids because well my moms the babysitter and she's out-of-order right now.
She has enjoyed seeing the girls but also has expressed how she may not fully regain her strength to watch my youngest.
Olivia is wide ass open full speed all day unless her eyes are…Continue

The joys of motherhood! I now have a one-year-old (actually 13 month old to be exact, but hey, who's counting?) and if you have a young child or have ever had a young child, then you know how they can push your buttons sometimes. That is exactly what my daughter has been doing lately!
Now, she has been walking since she was about 11 months old, which was something I never expected. I wanted her to remain immobile (at least partially) for a little while longer, but she had other plans.…Continue

Our kids need to wear clothes...well, at least need to be clothed in public (I'm lacking in patience for disapproving stares just as much as the next mama)...and Sprouting Threads is changing the way parents shop for their kids' clothes.
How many times have you bought an adorable new outfit for your kiddo, and then, it's outgrown in a few weeks or months? I mean, kids…Continue
Many parents ask me how they know when it is the right time to move their little one from the crib to a toddler bed. Unfortunately the answer is going to be different for everyone because every child is different. The good news is that you will figure it out.
Any new stage and transition in your child’s life is difficult (for you both), but in time, it all settles in and makes perfect sense. As always, Mommy Masters is here to support you and…Continue
I think it is the most despised, feared, and exhausting part of raising a kiddo. Did I mention despised? I did? Well I will say it…Continue

We've all been there…doing anything you can to make your kiddo happy when they’re in a ‘mood’. In our house, we find all sorts of ridiculous things to distract our girl from what she’s really upset about…nothing. Yep, that’s the reason behind most meltdowns- nothing. Oh, and these meltdowns? The ‘tude goes from ‘happy go lucky’ to ‘here’s my evil twin’ in less than a couple seconds. FUN. You've seen this…Continue
Any parent of a toddler can tell you one of the joys of toddlerhood is the awe-inspiring meltdown they can achieve in 0.1 seconds flat. It is truly remarkable. There is no discrimination on what a tantrum can be thrown over either. It can by ANYTHING! Take Emma's epic throw…Continue

Toddlers – when they are in a good mood they’re all sweetness and light, the apple of our eye, full of smiles and giggles; but at other times they can be as rude and offensive as a ranging drunk tramp.
Of course, we can put this down to the fact that their little brains are…Continue
