IMG_1250

While we try to cover many important topics on this site, regarding our children, there are times we choose to talk about those who play a significant part in our childrens’ lives, like our own parents (and even grandparents).  We all hope to always have them play vitals roles in our lives as our children grow, but we must also realize that as people get older, they are susceptible to various incurable diseases that can affect us significantly. Some of my greatest memories of my grandparents are from when they were with my son for the first time.  My Grandmother, […]

Meet Daniel Tiger #DanielTigerPBS

dtn2

Growing up, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was one of two shows (the other being Sesame Street) I was allowed to watch.  Both my sister and I loved watching Mister Roger’s Neighborhood.  We were glued to the screen from the moment he walked through the door introducing us to the day’s topic and into the Land of Make Believe, where we got lost in stories with King Friday, Henrietta, Mr McFeely and Prince Tuesday.  We would religiously tune in every day to follow the week’s story line and can still remember the words to theme song, It’s  beautiful day in the neighborhood…Won’t […]

Fever! Fever all through the Night. #OTCSafety

IMG_3804

Tis the season — the season of colds, flus, chills and fevers.  If you’re like me the first signs of illness in my child send me into a frenzy.  Like most parents, its hard to watch our children being sick.  Last year my family and I went through a terrifying ordeal when suddenly Marcus spiked fevers over 104.  It didn’t help that he wasn’t the most willing to take his medications.  We struggled back and forth between acetaminophen suppositories and flavored ibuprofen to cool bathes, trying desperately to control the fever to no avail.  The night of day 2 of […]

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Bumbo’s Booster Seat

photo (4)

With a 3 year old, it can be hard to get your child to sit at the table throughout a meal. Once your little on IS sitting with you, it can then be a challenge for them to properly reach their plate (due to their small stature). In comes the booster seat. We have tried many kinds: hard plastic, convertible high chairs, extra chair padding, and more. I was surprised to know that Bumbo, the company that made the green floor seat that helped my babies sit up without my help, has a booster seat as well. Made especially for […]
