An (Almost) Three Year Old’s Christmas List

February 21, 2018 No Comments

It’s happening! We’ll be quietly watching a toy review on You Tube Kids when a little voice rings out, “you buy me this?” My parenting in this situation has been a bit questionable in that I just reply, “We’ll put it on the Christmas list and ask Santa.” Unless it’s Lego (not Duplo) when I’ll […]

February 21, 2018 No Comments

The first time I flew by myself with our son, he was 3 months old and had colic. I was unbelievably nervous and anxious that he would cry the entire flight. We were formula feeding so I had to travel with pre-made bottles, and I had to keep the bottles cool. FYI, you can travel […]

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

The Hardest Months of My Life. Nothing in the world can prepare you for a child. Even less can prepare you for a child with colic! Colic, colic, colic. Everyone has a theory, everyone has an opinion and it tends to be the same – gas. Try gripe water, try burping him more, try, try, […]
