Living With a Corn Allergy

Living With a Corn Allergy

When you hear of a friend’s child having ‘food allergies,’ you probably think peanuts or eggs. Those allergies are certainly frustrating, (I know, because my son is allergic to both of those things, among others), but the kicker for us is corn. You’d think corn would be easy to cut out of your diet, right? [...]

Surrogacy Series: How I Decided to Become a Surrogate

I’m five months pregnant with a beautiful little girl. But she’s not my husband’s baby— and she’s not mine either; I’m a surrogate! Becoming a surrogate has been one of the most surreal experiences of my life. Why did I choose to become a surrogate? Honestly, I don’t have a good answer. One day, I [...]

Trick-Or-Treating with Food Allergies

Trick-Or-Treating with Food Allergies

For my family, the scariest part about Halloween this year won’t be the skeletons hanging in doorways and the zombies roaming the street. Instead, it’ll be the bucket of treats my kids collect when they go door-to-door trick or treating. My 2.5 year old son, L, is allergic to corn. That’s the biggie— corn and [...]

Carseat Cinema Review and Giveaway!

Carseat Cinema Review and Giveaway!

The Carseat Cinema is one of those things that people comment on when they see me using it, “now why didn’t I think of that?” The idea is simple, and very smart. It’s a hanging protective cover for your tablet or smart phone, so your child can play or watch a show while keeping the [...]

DIY Paper Heart Wreath

DIY Paper Heart Wreath

Perfect for Valentine’s Day, a paper heart wreath is a fun craft for mama and little ones! I made this one with my toddler, and I’ll be making another with my preschooler next week! I used one-sided scrapbook paper squares, so that means one side of the paper is plain white. I’d recommend using double-sided [...]

Learning Left and Right: Tricks and Tips!

Learning Left and Right: Tricks and Tips!

“I can do it myself!” is a common phrase heard in our house. My three-year-old is very independent and often has to do things all alone. This includes, of course, getting dressed and putting on her shoes. She often put her shoes on backward and wouldn’t even notice that they felt funny. So we came [...]

Creamy Avocado Pesto Sauce

Creamy Avocado Pesto Sauce

This creamy avocado pesto sauce is perfect over chicken, fish or alone on pasta. It’s quick and easy to make in a blender. I love to serve it cold over pasta and grilled chicken for dinner on a warm night. Delicious and simple! It’s got a tiny bit of kick, but it’s not spicy. My [...]

Egg-Free Pumpkin Spice Bars

Egg-Free Pumpkin Spice Bars

It’s pumpkin time! (Also known as fall.) I, like many of you, am a lover of all things pumpkin this time of year— pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bars. My 18-month-old son was recently diagnosed with an egg allergy and a corn allergy. Unfortunately, this includes all egg and corn byproducts, like cornstarch [...]
