New Friends

February 21, 2018 No Comments

Today I made a friend. It doesn’t sound all too ground breaking but in the world today, it is. We met in a toy store. Not a playgroup, not a toddler activity, but just in a regular, run of the mill toy store. I thought her son was 5. He wasn’t acting like a “normal” […]

The Devil that is Sleep Training.

February 21, 2018 No Comments

Warning: This is a LONG post. Whenever the words sleep training are uttered, the deep dark recesses of the internet shudders. It knows that another war of words is about to erupt. I have yet to see a Facebook feed or comments section that doesn’t result in some mommy-shaming of some kind. Having posted comments […]

A Newborn Baby… Who has Colic

February 21, 2018 No Comments

Living with a Jura Coffee Machine The greatest contributor to my day is coffee! To my credit, I only drink 2 to 3 cups a day which is a lot for most people I guess, but I have no intention of cutting down. I need to make up for the lost time since I only […]

Gilroy Garlic Festival 2017

February 21, 2018 No Comments

Garlic, garlic, garlic and more garlic So a couple of weeks ago we attended the Gilroy Garlic Festival.

We were also skeptical […]
