She had slipped through the bars of the park’s iron fence. I was facing her; I should have seen it. But I didn’t, and so my 2-year-old was standing on the edge of the sidewalk, feet from a street known for its reckless drivers. “She’s out! She’s by the street! By the street!” yelled a […]
A copy of this book was provided for our honest, un-biased review.“A Short Guide to Raising Good Kids,” is, yes, another parenting book. Hold the eye rolls, please. Susan Purser, the author, is a Massachusetts mom, and I found her book to be chock-full of good ideas. Susan’s relationship with her mother, and the discussions they […]

Sometimes I’m a really productive mom while my girls are napping. I’ll clean, write, read, contact my old friends to let them know I’m not dead. You know, that kind of stuff. But sometimes I just want to lose myself in a world so very different than my own, for at least an hour every […]
It all started when we decided to get her to stop sucking her thumb. I don’t know why. We had a reason before, but I don’t remember it now. Life was so different back then. If you’ve had a child who wanted to drop a nap before she was really ready to, you will intimately […]
This is a sponsored post, but OBVIOUSLY Green Piñata is an awesome company, or else we’d have told them to BEAT IT a long time ago. Collaborative consumption.
