Costume Fears and Toddler Tears

My toddler is cute. At least I think so. But do you know what else he is? Scared… no, TERRIFIED… of costumes. Also mascots. And face paint. And the Easter Bunny. And (obviously) Santa. And sometimes even Daddy’s shaving cream. In all honesty, I’m not overly concerned with this little phobia of his. Why? Well, […]

Raising Kids with Good Taste

Possible unpopular opinion alert: entertainment for kids today – music, movies, even some books – well, it’s terrible. A little. Right? I mean sure – good, new stuff does exist.

Motherly Advice

I recently rummaged through a plastic tub in my closet in which I keep mementos and things for my son. You know – hospital bracelet, the “coming home” outfit, his certificate for completing his first swim lessons… …and the advice cards. Oh, the advice cards.

Thank You Notes From a Mom

November is my favorite month for many reasons: my daughter’s birthday, Thanksgiving, and it’s finally socially acceptable to begin playing Christmas music. Of course, November is also the month for giving thanks and being grateful, which is why I’ve created this list of mom thank you notes, modeled after Jimmy Fallon’s hilarious thank you note […]
