Making Attainable Fitness Goals

The weather is finally getting warmer, and I’m so excited I could almost die. Almost. My dry-weather running shoes have been sitting, crying in the closet without me to pound the pavement with them. It’s time to get them back out. After I’ve been cooped up mostly inside for the end of fall and all winter, I tend to go a little crazy once spring arrives. But to get myself going and not burn out too quickly, I am going…

Swing Into Spring

Even though winter decided to stick around a little bit longer than we had hoped here in New England, I’m still making sure to take my tiny baby outside to get some fresh air. His favorite activity right now is going on the baby swing! He could sit in that swing for a half-hour, happily watching the older toddlers play around on the rest of the playground. I absolutely love this age!…

Dealing With Allergy Issues When You Are Breastfeeding #WellAtWalgreens #shop

April Showers are about come our way, and with that means tons of flowers. Tons of flowers naturally means allergy season will be setting in as well. I have my fair share of allergy issues, and recently Tall Dad has had a bit of a stuffy nose. Because I am still breastfeeding Itty Bitty, my allergy medicine and recommended vitamins are a bit different than Tall Dad’s – so I went out and purchased a whole bunch of goods to…

How To Make A FROZEN Themed Baby Sensory Bottle #FROZENFun

Dear Itty Bitty, I think Tall Dad is starting to get sick of my singing. I, along with the rest of the world, have been obsessed with singing along to the soundtrack of FROZEN the movie. My favorite song is a tie between Love is an Open Door and Fixer Upper. You have been treated, daily, to a private FROZEN concert by yours truly. So, once the movie was available on DVD, I scooped it up, along with a couple…

Hello Spring

I was never really a big fan of spring. It always seemed to be filled with rain, mud was everywhere, and end of the school year tests and grades always brought about extra amounts of stress. But something changed last year. I had my tiny baby last spring, and since then, I’ve seen the season in a whole new way. I saw more flowers than I can ever remember. Smelled the sweetest air, honeysuckle seemed to be everywhere!  And I…

How A Baby’s Double Cowlick Is Related To Autism

Do you remember rubbing balloons on your head to make your hair stick straight up thanks to static electricity?  Well that’s what my Itty Bitty’s hair does. But, no balloon required.  He’s all Natural.  It’s not the whole head, its just in the center top back of his head.  Just like Alfalfa’s from the Little Rascals. I assume this means my Itty Bitty is going to be a little rascal himself 🙂 So why does his hair stand up like this?…

Maybe you’re an adoptive parent and you wish you could hold your tiny…

Dear Kate Underwear Review

Women’s Underwear: Some are pretty, some are slinky, black and lacy. Others are solid, strong and structured. Some are playful, some are plain…and then there are those that are the ugly ducklings.

In addition to having our staples and cute pairs, we also have our period pairs of underwear.  The dreaded Granny Panties…. Alright…
