The Big Push

I know what you were all thinking when you read the title but this post is not about the impending arrival of my third child. It’s about this blog – my 2nd and a half child and really finding a way to push it out there. When I launched this blog almost 2 years ago… read more

Bake: Pumpkin Cookies

I love eating seasonally. Fall calls for pumpkins and apples, both ripe and pickable this time of year. These pumpkin cookies are relatively healthy, packed with beta-carotene, fiber, and vitamins A, C and E. In my opinion they are perfectly acceptable for breakfast too.

Go See: Men, Women, and Children

As a parent raising children in this technologically overloaded world I can’t help but wonder how the web, smart phones, iPads, and video games will change the landscape of our most intimate relationships. “Men, Women, and Children“ is the newest film from Jason Reitman (best known for his films Thank you for Smoking, Up In… read more

What to Wear: Kid Clothes

With a new season comes lots of clothes sorting over at our place! In our house we do a constant shuffle cycling clothes that are too small for my older daughter to her younger sister’s closet. That means my 6 year old then needs new stuff to replace the things she’s outgrown. Here is a… read more
