Sometimes I ask my son about the house he would like to live in one day. He tells me that he wants a big backyard with a fence to keep him safe (that's my guy!), lots of good sidewalks for riding bikes, a slide instead of a stairway (don't ask) and three rooms just for him.…Continue

When I first lived alone, I was mildly afraid of the dark. I would hate investigating weird noises by myself and refused to leave the perceived safety of my bed in the middle of the night.
As a mom, I am afraid of the dark for a completely different reason: I am pretty sure I am going to step on a…

When you have a baby it's safe to say that you are restricted on the amount of free-time that you have throughout the day – we often have to rush when we are purchasing products and occasionally this might mean that we purchase products that aren't up to the standards we would like them to…Continue

This last week, as part of Big M’s in home therapy we all gathered the room full of toys together and sorted through them. The goal was to organize the toys to be easier to find, sort through them and pick ones to donate or discard and to set up a new toy system.
I am quite excited for this new toy system! We broke everything up into small bags and buckets. They get one bucket of toys in the living room at a time. Before they can get a new bucket out they must pick up and put the…Continue

I've always been of the opinion that Play-Doh, Silly Putty, and all things gooey should be "outside" toys. They just always seem to crumble into little bits all over the floor for someone's feet to drag throughout the entire damn house. And this is EXACTLY why I should have known better than to allow my children to…Continue

When I found out my first child was a boy, the response from everyone was, “Uh oh! You are gonna be busy. Boys are active.” I thought to myself, “Good. It will probably help me to lose some of this baby weight I’ve gained.” It wasn’t until around the time Joshua turned one that I could really see what everyone was talking about.
One Saturday, it was just Joshua and…Continue

“Don't take your toys inside just because it's raining.”
With reference to the above thought, there are no conditions attached when it comes to a baby and his toys. The foremost thing he loves is- playing with his toys as it brings sheer fun and happiness. Since, it is nearly impossible for parents to be around their li’ll one all day long, toys entertain him and keep him occupied. It holds importance to offer our kids with a lot of toys to play with. And if we don’t, we are taking…Continue

If I was to give my son a baby doll today, he would hand it back to me with a "no thank you, Mommy," and continue playing with a car or truck. I know this, because I've tried it. This just tells me that
Are you buying gender appropriate gifts this holiday season?
As the mother of three boys, whose husband travels for work, I spend A LOT of time with my little men. It would only make sense that they have a lot of feminine exposure. If I come home with a new pair of shoes, they want to see them and tell me how cool they are. When a commercial comes on…

Are you need some great gift ideas for your baby this Christmas? As you know babies don’t need very many toys, especially during the first four months. Once your baby turns 4 months old, he or she will need to begin spending time on their tummy to help develop their motor skills and strengthen their core muscles. Even if your child isn’t quite ready to play with the toys, babies are always interested in looking around and exploring objects around them. Playtime is also a great way…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who has noticed that being a mother has made me an unintended liar. The lies I tell are usually in my son’s best interest, for instance I don’t really know if the dog will bite him if he pets her while she is eating, but I think it’s safer not to, so I say with great confidence that he will get…Continue

I had a coupon and the "birthday bucks" from ToysRUs, so instead of letting it go to waste as I sometimes do, I decided to make a quick detour to ToysRUs yesterday. I was kids free for a couple of hours, so there was no one there to tug on my clothes and whine that they're tired of hungry or "want to go hommmmmmmeeeeee". My "quick stop" ended up being more like 45 minutes.…

I came home today to find my son’s cousins have come over to play for the afternoon. With my son suitably entertained for the time being and my husband on kid patrol, I am comfortably ensconced at my desk with a cup of hazelnut coffee and a croissant slathered in Nutella (what else?) and…Continue

You know how you had that one toy in your bedroom as a kid that kinda creeped you out once your parents turned out the lights and tucked you in for the night? Mine was a clown who I swear glared at me from his perch high up on my bookcase. (Special thanks to Poltergeist for that little childhood fear.) But now that I'm an adult (allegedly anyway), my daughter has…Continue
One of the joys of, well, all of my pregnancies is that I organize and re-organize everything. Tell me you’re the same way, yes? During my last ‘nesting session’, I hit the toy room, purged lots of toys and re-organized everything. My head was spinning with options as to what to do with all of their toys and…Continue

My new book, Pink is Just a Color and so is Blue will be available on Amazon in 2 weeks.
Pink is Just a Color and so is Blue is inspired by my 2 boys. I once heard my older son telling my younger one that he was “like a girl” because he liked the color pink and enjoyed playing with toys that some people might…Continue
