Our New Baby Monitor

Mamavation Monday: Pledging to the Sistahood!

I don’t exactly recall how I first heard about Mamavation, but I do remember being impressed by the compassion and kindness of its members.  Since last fall, I’ve completed several Mamavation Two Week Challenges (3? 4?  I can’t recall!).  The challenges really helped me on my road to fitness and Continue Reading…

C’s New Toddler Bed

A couple weeks ago, I put C down for a nap in his crib like usual.  About 20 minutes later, I was shocked when I heard one of his toys that was across the room.  I ran down the hallway to his room and, sure enough, he was out of his crib and playing Continue Reading…

Things That Make Me Say, “Whaaaa?”
