    Vanellope Von Schweetz Costume Tutorial – The Hair

    Making my own DIY Vanellope Von Schweetz costume was not an easy undertaking, at least not for me, the least crafty mom on the block. Halfway through, I felt WAY in over my head and wanted to chuck the wig stand right through the window as ...

    8 Tips To Buying The Perfect Kid’s Bed

    I Don’t Love My Baby

    “I don’t love my baby”, she said to me nonchalantly and with such a straight face that I laughed because I thought she was joking. Still laughing, I asked, “You’re joking, right?” and then I saw it in her eyes, glassy from tears she wouldn’t let fall, and my smile quickly faded. Sitting across from my friend with her days old newborn baby girl, I knew she was suffering from something either of us had barely understood; postpartum depression.  READ MORE

    If Adults Acted Like Toddlers

    Call me jealous if you must (and if you’re into accuracy), but sometimes I look at my 2-year-old and wish I could get away with the stuff she does.

    Not that I condone her behavior, mind you. But I do sort of admire it. Toddlers have the perfect blend of sweetness, manipulation, and a complete lack of inhibitions that makes them the boss of every room they enter.

    As people grow older, we suddenly feel the need to follow rules set forth by polite society – which is good, because when we’re older we need to do things that little kids don’t have to worry about, like make friends and keep jobs and not tick people off who might start a rollicking brawl at Chuck E Cheese’s. However, as we gain maturity, we lose the toddler’s enviable ability to exert total control over pretty much every single thing on Earth. READ MORE

    Losing A Child

    A little over a week ago, an a cool blustery fall day, my family loaded into our minivan, and drove in silence. Well, as much silence as is possible when you have a three-year-old and nearly two-year-old in the back seat. The clouds covered...
