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.

My first night with Fitbit Flex

I hope you all had a merry Christmas! One of the great gifts I received was the Fitbit Flex that I’ve wanted since first seeing it last summer. I love tracking my steps and distance covered (calories burned I care less about since I’m pregnant), but I was also excited to track my sleep habits. It’s very lightweight and can be worn to bed comfortably (as well … Continue reading

Junior is just over nine weeks.  It’s a bratty age — going outside is becoming more fun and less a hiccup-inducing chore for him.  Only problem is the weather has been freezing/melting/freezing/melting so the ground is muddy and there is still ice to slip on.  Also, there are dried up bean pods everywhere in our yard thanks to the tree next door. … Continue reading

The app I am about to describe eliminates … Continue reading

Oh hello.

Chrome keeps freezing. Are you cold, little one? I love you… you’re normally so quick and clean and refreshing. *Wraps a blanket around you.* Is that better? Will you start scrolling again soon? Is it that I haven’t updated you in a while? Do you feel out of style? Are you angry at me because I’ve been working doubles and I haven’t been warming you up with … Continue reading
