Girls Night In

August 13, 2021

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that I made a mistake and said “in” when I should have said “out” because us girls NEED a good girls night out once in awhile. True, we do. But I heard about a neat girls night idea that involved staying in: wine + wisdom. There is a [...]

Booty Pop Panties

August 11, 2021

I’m certain I’m not the target market for these new panties called Booty Pop, but I’m intrigued. Seeing as how I’m challenged in the booty area, I usually look for jeans and pants that have flaps or other flat-booty distractions. So undies with padding in the derrier? I gotta try these! Booty Pop Panties are [...]

Grocery Delivery for Moms

August 10, 2021

I’ve been looking for ways to simplify my life. I used to love grocery shopping - fingering all the fresh produce, dreaming about what I could cook up. But now it’s all about speed. How fast can I shop and what will make a fast dinner? Not exactly fun. Add to that 2 children and [...]

10 Ways To “Divorceproof” Your Marriage

August 6, 2021

Sage advice from Samantha Bee and Jason Jones (you know, the wacky duo from The Daily Show who actually are married in real life). And, no, this isn’t the beginning of one of their jokes. It’s from my Real Simple magazine that I opted to get a “free” copy of and I’ve gotten hooked! So, [...]

Babies: A Documentary About Babies

August 4, 2021

Have you seen the documentary “Babies“? Me either. It’s a documentary about babies in four different cultures: Japan, Namibia, Mongolia and the US. Supposedly it’s telling how similarly the babies are from each culture. But, I hear that the only culture where the moms seem happy toiling over their children is in Namibia. The Namibian [...]

I often wonder why I go in to check on my sleeping child. Seriously. Either I can’t see a damn thing because the room is too dark or, if I need to do something (like soothe her or check to see if she’s wet herself) then I turn the light on and everyone is awake [...]

Chanel Surf Board

August 3, 2021

When I came across this little nugget, I was thinking what I could say about a surf board made by Chanel. Yes, THAT Chanel. Ooh, so much came to mind, only nothing quite fit. Nothing quite captured my feelings correctly. Then it hit me: More money than sense. Nuff said.

Active Couch Potatoes

July 27, 2021

Tell me if this sounds familiar: you get in your car, drive to the gym, hell, even look for the closest parking spot, and then work out. Totally normal - in fact most people do it or something similar. Yet in so doing, we’ve replaced low-intensity activities (like walking, bending, reaching and stretching) with being [...]

A Guide to Developmentally Appropriate Baby Toys

July 26, 2021

Do you remember watching an infant move her arm intentionally for the first time? I’d forgotten how intense that simple movement can be, but I was reminded not long ago. My wee one was staring at my hands holding her bottle. She was cradled on my hip (you know, the mama pose) and staring intently. [...]

Mutsy Double Stroller

July 21, 2021

Since the birth of my second daughter, I’ve had an eagle eye out for good, useful double strollers. By useful I mean it can be used in the city without knocking other pedestrians off the sidewalk. By useful I also mean it can be navigated in and out of normal (read: narrow) doorways with ease. [...]
