Baby Food for the Royal Baby

So everyone's in a tizzy over little George, and the question on everyone's lips - at least, everyone's hungry lips - is this:What do royal babies eat?...more

And then there was the time that CNN directly referenced a Duchess' lady-bits....

Well kids, it happened. The royal baby was born today and we can all now descend from where we have, collectively, spent the last week perched, trying to see inside the Duchess’ hoo-ha in order to watch the blessed event. I’m sad to see it end.Ok, I can’t keep that up. I, frankly, am glad it’s all over. My sister, however, is devastated. She set alerts on her phone from UsWeekly so that she would know the precise minute that the baby started to crown. Yea, she's one of those....more

The Mommy Uniform: Yes, You Can Make It Stylish!

There is one thing all moms eventually succumb to: The Mommy Uniform. We have all seen the generation before us rock the mom jeans and probably convinced ourselves we would never give in to such a thing. Well, we have... or will. And while the stained sweatpants will most likely be the weapon of choice for the stay-at-home mom, us working mommies have to be a little more discreet about it. Now something as magical as The Mommy Uniform doesn’t just happen overnight. It’s a process. Let me walk you through it. ...more

His smile melts my heart.

There are things that when my son does them I smile. There are things he does that make me laugh;like when he plays with his feet I laugh. But, when he smiles it melts my heart. His smile melts my heart so much that I never want to let him go. My little man of 4 months in age is at a point where he is discovering so much already. I love how everthing is funny to him.I think it is great and every little thing he does turns me to mush.Who would have thought that this little person could make me so unbelievably happy....more

I Was Scared of Labor -- Until I Was in Labor!

In all honesty, I was pretty scared about giving birth. Of course I rationalized the situation by reminding myself that childbirth is a completely natural thing to do, that we were all born somehow, and that my body was designed to give birth. I started reading about hypnobirthing and that definitely helped keeping a positive attitude about it all. I also continued working for as long as I possibly could to avoid sitting at home all day worrying about what was to come. But I just couldn't seem to shake that little voice in the back of my head screaming, “OMG! I’m going to have to push an entire human being out... through my vagina!” ...more
Funny how we are so scared of the unknown until it happens! ;)  I was the same way, but you have ...more

Frantic Friday

Frantic Friday! As the week comes to a close and the weekend is about to start, I like to stop for a moment to appreciate the small things. We tend to overlook the small daily happenings and focus on the larger ones. We focus on the bills that need to be paid (rightfully so!), dinner that needs to be made, cat-hair tumbleweeds that need to be vacuumed....more

Is There a Doctor in the House?

My little Pumpkin gets sick.  A lot.  I am reassured (?) by my doctor that this is because of all the lovely germs she is exposed to at her child care centre, and not because of defective care on my part, or some obscure, rare, genetic or chronic condition.It doesn’t help much, though.  He told me that, where most infants and toddlers can expect to get one infection every six weeks, childcare babies are more likely to get one in every two weeks.  And Pumpkin is certainly living up to standard....more
