WHY DO I BLOG

I started Tall Mom tiny baby in the fall of 2012.  At the time I was a local morning television host, was newly pregnant with my first child, and had just celebrated my second anniversary with my darling husband. My job as a full time TV personality was soon coming to an end, and I was quickly morphing into a new mom whether I liked it or not. I had enjoyed sharing people’s stories while I was on television, but…

My Maternity Photo Session: Pregnancy Pictures with Agroterra Photography

A Zebra. A big, huge, horizontally striped zebra. That’s exactly what I felt like recently at a friends wedding. I was seven months pregnant, had gained some weight, and stupidly fell into the trap of wearing horizontal stripes while being pregnant. (Why?!?! Why make us pregnant women look larger than we already are?) I hid from the photographer and videographer as much as I could, but found one photo of me from behind, and I was mortified. I wanted to…

The Best Baby and Toddler Friendly Places in Rhode Island – Morris Ave Tot Lot – Providence

Snuggled within Morris Avenue on the East Side of Providence is a precious and perfect little playground specifically aimed at babies and toddlers. The toddler park on Morris Ave seems to have been an extra house lot the city may have taken over and filled with mulch and fenced in. It is not large, but I actually like that about it. Unlike its larger playground neighbor, the Glady’s Potter Garden, the Morris Ave tot lot is cute and compact –…

Tall Mom tiny kitchen: Haunted Graveyard Cake Recipe

I’ve always loved Halloween. I’ve dressed up, every year, since I was three.  Whether it was being Big Bird, April O’Neil from Ninja Turtles, or the Evil Queen from Snow White – I’ve always been down to dress up.  Heck, one of my favorite movie’s is the oh-so-bad-but-I-don’t-care-because-it’s-awesomely-bad Hocus Pocus!  Bette Midler in that movie is my spirit animal.  Yup, you know you love it too.  Admit it. But. this year will be different.  A whole new level of excitement…
