Emma & the terrible TWOS!

You’re 22 pounds of full speed ahead. You’re favorite food is yolo (yogurt) and you’ll do just about anything for a lolli. You’re into dinosaurs and baby dolls which makes me laugh. You aren’t afraid of anything. You love the baby shark song almost as much as you love Bad Blood. Your musical repertoire is…

A few important rules to teach your daughters

• Travel light through life. Keep only what you need. • It’s okay to cry when you’re hurt. It’s also okay to smash (some) things; but, wash your face, clean your mess, and get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there. • If you’re going to curse, be clever. If…

Little Spoon + a GIVEAWAY!!

Today I want to introduce to Little Spoon!!! an organic baby food delivery service. Their motto is “your baby food shouldn’t be older than your baby” which I just love.

I’ll eat you up – I love you so

The past 6 months have been the hardest of my life, for so many different reasons. The saying “you don’t know, till you know” is true. I knew that having a second child would make life more difficult. I knew that there would be times when I would struggle – I just didn’t realize how…
