Happy Hearts Day!

What a sunshiny day! We haven’t had too many of these so far this year. We spent some time in the yard this morning with the melting snow, and we headed over to check on any new developments that may have arisen on the kid’s “stage”. It’s a sort of gazebo built by the previous lady who lived here. It’s empty now because it’s winter but usually … Continue reading

They’re back! Munchkin Diaper Pail Refills

Fits all Arm & Hammer Munchkin diaper pails

Hey parents and non-parents alike (though admittedly this post is a bit more parent-oriented than my others)! Happy Wednesday! Let me tell you a smelly tale. For a good while, keeping the nappy stench from wafting ’round the airs of our house was a job held by the mighty Arm & Hammer Munchkin Diaper Pail. Then out of nowhere, the pail and the refill bags were discontinued. One day, … Continue reading

Why we love the Dream On Me Pack N Play Mattress

Hi again! Sometimes I like something enough that I feel sharing a few tidbits about my experience with it will benefit people in similar situations. This is one of those times. Here’s my review on this pack n play mattress that seemingly has magical powers over our nap-resisting son.

Turning 2!

Birthday cake time!

Happy birthday, Coolguy! This kid is our light. He’s made everything better and given us 1) a whole new perspective on life; 2) the realization that sleep deprivation is a powerful torture mechanism; and 3) filled our (previously grey & withered) hearts with love. Anyway I’ll hush up now. I just like this guy a bunch and can’t believe it’s been two years since my bladder worked properly. … Continue reading

3 (+2) chalazion treatments that really helped

[UPDATED May 19, 2016: Have you been here before? I’ve added new stuff to this post. Scroll to the bottom for my favourite chalazion-busters yet.] The title of this post is misleading. We tried many ways. When our little guy got his first chalazions (one under each eye, ugh) around the age of one and a half, we naturally thought they were styes. I get them every … Continue reading

Just a little update…

I know I talk a lot about bibs lately, but this is fast becoming THE thing I do now. I just wanted to show you a few new things I’ve whipped up this week: These newest bibs are reversible, and they can be rolled down to 1) add an adorable accent with their reverse side; and 2) fit smaller for younger babies! I’m revved up about reversible … Continue reading

Christmas bibs

As I sit here on my big yellow couch watching Home Alone 2 a little too early in the season with a Gumby wedged into my ribcage apparently, I feel an update is needed. Our small boy is growing, and so fast. This week he learned the word “moonlight” because he is a sweet, silly boy and that’s what makes sense to him to learn at 19 months … Continue reading
