Kathy’s Breastfeeding Journey

Kathy’s Breastfeeding Journey

When I found out that I was pregnant, breastfeeding was the last thing on my mind. I was so excited to spread the news, find out whether we would have a boy or girl, prepare the nursery accordingly and all of those other ‘important’ details. As the first few months passed, I was asked quite [...]

Cassidy’s Transition to a Big Girl Bed

Cassidy’s Transition to a Big Girl Bed

Shortly before our daughter turned two, we planned a trip to Florida to visit my parents for a holiday. Knowing that we would be flying from Ontario to Panama City Beach with a toddler and our luggage instantly made me realize that taking a playpen with us was out of the question. I figured that [...]

Exederm Eczema Cream Review and Giveaway!

My daughter is two and suffers from mild eczema. It is especially bad in winter with the very dry and cold air – this winter has been brutal for that, which means her breakouts have been worse than normal. When the opportunity came up to try out a new eczema cream, I jumped all over [...]

My surprise birthday present! A BFP?!

My surprise birthday present! A BFP?!

My husband and I had been married for about five months when we decided that we wouldn’t necessarily try to get pregnant, but we wouldn’t prevent it either. So at the end of February 2011, I didn’t refill my prescription for the birth control pill I was taking. From what I had heard, it would [...]

Mini Egg Blondies
