Britax B-Agile Stroller

Britax B-Agile Stroller

When my daughter was just about eight months old, my husband I and started shopping around for a new, “big-girl” stroller.

Music to Sing and Shake To for Toddlers

Music to Sing and Shake To for Toddlers

My son TJ has become quite a music fan within his third year. Very often we have music playing at home (especially when I’m cooking dinner) and we happily sing and dance along, so it’s not a complete surprise when my son asks me if we can watch “trombone videos” or “the violin guy“ on YouTube. Sometimes we [...]

DIY Cardboard Box Oven

When I was a kid, family vacations were almost always camping. With four kids in a single-income household, we couldn’t really afford flying somewhere for a vacation.

When I am asked what the most useful baby item for my son when he was a newborn was, I don’t have to think hard. The first thing that comes to my mind is my Boppy Pillow! I believe every new parent has that “one thing they could not live without.” The Boppy was mine! [...]

The Not-So-Talked-About Milestones

The Not-So-Talked-About Milestones

Milestones— They are exciting. We are always looking forward to the next one. We’re wondering if our kid is going to be the one that hits them early, is “average,” or does them late. From early on, I was told my son would probably be late to hitting some of the physical milestones, at least [...]
