Exploring Our Public Library

Exploring Our Public Library

This past spring I discovered our public library. I knew where it was, but I never went there to visit or see what it was all about in our small town. I really wish I’d gone sooner. However, now is the perfect time since M will be three and we have already outgrown our bookshelf. [...]

The Baby Files

The Baby Files

Things I thought I would never do when I was a mom: The Baby Files Cloth diaper. Going into this I wanted to cloth diaper because I was as a baby. Now, I’m saving the planet one diaper at a time, which is only a perk to why I use cloth. Use essential oils. I though [...]

The Mama Files

The Mama Files

Things I thought I would never do when I was a mom: The Mama Files Buy “fat” pants. Yes.I.Did. Use baby layette hangers to dry my bras. They make cute little bra trees. You should try it. Wear a plain tank top around shopping for the day. I got baby poop/puke on my main shirt. [...]

Boiling Eggs

Boiling Eggs

I never knew there was a right and wrong way to make hard boiled eggs. I had been boiling them wrong basically my entire life. You don’t understand how much you have overcooked them until you have boiled eggs the “right” way.  This is a somewhat trivial thing for me. I mean really, how do [...]

TTC: Mindy’s Extraordinary Journey

Quick and Easy Freezer Meals

Quick and Easy Freezer Meals

I began to meal prep a couple of weeks before the arrival of Baby 2K. I did this for our family before M was born and it worked well for us. When you’re recovering from birth, breastfeeding, and adjusting to life with a newborn, cooking dinner for your family is not high on your list [...]

My Battle With Breast Pumps

My Battle With Breast Pumps

When I decided I was going to breastfeed and go back to work full time I found that a breast pump was a necessary evil. Now that we have that out of the way, how do you go about picking one? At first, I thought getting a pump was simple and I could go on [...]

Peep’s Nest Car Seat Cooler Review and Giveaway

Peep’s Nest Car Seat Cooler Review and Giveaway

I’ve read a lot of articles and advertisements about baby coolers lately. By baby coolers, I mean devices that cool the fabric on car seats and strollers, making them more comfortable for our kids on hot, summer days. First, these are a very practical products. Second, I wish I’d had one for my first baby. [...]
