As we welcome our newest little one in just a few weeks (maybe days, yikes), I’ve been thinking about all the things that made our lives better after we had our son. Breast pump, bottles, specific baby gear…but what about Dad? A lot of gift lists for new parents leave off Dad. The shopping lists for new baby’s arrival are all about making mom and baby’s lives easier. I asked
Becoming a big brother or big sister is a pretty big task for a little one. We’re welcoming a daughter soon and have been starting to prepare our son for his new role as big brother. Books play a big role in our daily life. Our son loves when we read to him and we sometimes catch him reading to himself. “Reading,” I should say. Like most other occasions,
Is it almost that time of year? The time where we’re all searching for the best toys to get our kids? Just me? With our second due in November, I’m getting into shopping mode way ahead of the curve now. Like, way ahead of the curve. Bought and wrapped well before she arrives.

Creating a fall list of activities to go is a great way to get your kids excited about the new season!
Halloween is right around the corner! With every other holiday I love having themed books to read to my toddler son during the season. Halloween books can be a little spooky but most of these books for kids aren’t too scary. The list of 18 Halloween books for toddlers below features all board books. Boy, there’s nothing more frustrating than reading with my son as he rips half a page
The baby market is full of so many items baby needs that we can sometimes forget about mom and dad. Sure, a swing can make mom’s life easier but what about dinner? Are you really getting the best gifts for the new parents in your life? This list isn’t going to be chock full of baby products. One of the biggest issues new parents face is finding the time to
Don’t tell the others, but fall is without a doubt my favorite season. I just get the urge to craft, cook, and head outdoors in my sweater and boots with my Starbucks in hand. As soon as September hits, the basic hits me hard, takes over, and stays through Thanksgiving. It helps that my birthday falls just a couple weeks before Thanksgiving!

People say the dumbest things to a woman when she’s pregnant. Like moths to a flame, pregnant women immediately become subjected to rude comments and opinions that they didn’t ask for or want.
