The Princess and the Pee

The CVS cashier smiled at me from across the counter. “Ooo, you have extra-bucks, and lots of coupons!” she squealed, and she handed me my three foot long white strip of paper. I quickly glanced down at the receipt and had to chuckle to myself. I had just earned diaper coupons for not only my tiny baby, but also myself. I had purchased adult diapers frequently enough that CVS wanted me to start saving money on this major purchase. I…

Long Island Wine Country

My marriage needed a little TLC. Over the past two years, I went from a regular girl, to being super busy as a television host on The Rhode Show, to being pregnant, to then giving birth to our adorable tiny baby whom we so fondly nicknamed Itty Bitty. Tall Dad and I went from being husband and wife, to TV host and bag carrier, to mom and dad, all in what seemed to be a nano-second. It was a busy…

This sleep deprived Tall Mom decided to make terrible meme of my child. I’m pretty sure this makes me a bad parent. Welcome to nap time in our tiny apartment. Itty Bitty’s screaming has reached a whole new level. My husband and I are…

The Best Baby Friendly Places in Rhode Island – Blithewold Mansion – Bristol

This post is part of the Tall Mom tiny baby’s Best Baby Friendly Places in Rhode Island Series. As much as I love decorating, fun food, special candies, and general merriment – holidays themselves really stress me out. Maybe it’s because as a young girl I hated waking up early, getting dressed up complete with pantyhose, and whisked off to an all too early church service, only to then be carted around to various friends and family’s houses.
