I recently had the opportunity to review Napbags by OC Daisy. I was able to pick the design I wanted from their website (click the link above) and even had the opportunity to customize it with my son’s name. The item arrived as promised but because we were out of town, I did not get… Read More Napbags by OC Daisy
TJ will be 2.5 years next month. Yes, my little boy whom I can still remember holding as a newborn, is going to be two-and-a-half years old!!! My other little one, my munchmuffin will turn 4 months this week…the kids are growing up and every day, I feel just a little bit nostalgic for what… Read More Please stop growing…not really…yes, really…no..
Most people, myself included, will be forgiven for thinking that firstborns have all the advantages over their younger siblings. After all, they got their parents’ undivided attention for a while before the next one came along. They were fussed over, hovered over, and attended to perhaps far more than any of their siblings.

Before I had kids I never really had favorite times of the day. Don’t get me wrong. I did enjoy my peaceful alone times by Lake Michigan, the times I would go jogging by myself without having to push a BOB, the days I completed all those 5k races
There are days and then there are days. The days when most things go right and I take pleasure at a job well done, praising myself even for having kept my cool, nurtured my children into a great future by reading and singing to them, teaching them new things, appreciating their contributions to our family

I am just not the stay at home kinds as I have previously written. I am just not made of that grain. I don’t know if I… Read More I cried. Wasn’t the first time. Won’t be the last.
I am supremely exhausted today. I just put Baby E down for the night at 7:45 p.m. That baby has barely slept 2 hours all day today. How do people with multiple kids manage their little ones’ naps when they also have to manage a rambunctious and noisy toddler or older sibling? Beloved J and… Read More Just one of those days
Little J attended his first birthday party today. My colleague’s son, Aarav, turns 2 next week and we attended a celebration of that day. The party was between 1 – 4 p.m. which was a great time frame for us. We believe J is going through some kind of a growth spurt which is why… Read More J attends his first birthday party
Baby J is almost one now. I can’t believe I started this blog while pregnant, updated it a little over the pregnancy, wrote most of the posts in the early post-partum days and will soon be writing posts about my toddler. How time flies!! J used to be a three naps a day kid. He… Read More Changing Sleep Schedules
