I have an 8X10 photo of myself almost 1 year after the birth of my youngest daughter and there are two dark holes with a little speck of light where my eyes should’ve been. I was more messed up than I thought! With too many things only I could do and not enough of me to complete the list, I needed an intervention!
Let’s just tell the truth. Many of us moms secretly love the chaos of motherhood. It gives us purpose—to face each day as an unexpected surprise and then see how effective we can be against the challenges our children present. Babies have a way of being just unpredictable enough that something is bound to come up that throws you off the rails.
But here’s the catch: (more…)
Has the time come for your little one to get their first hair cut? Although you may be filled with mixed emotions, as you are starting to see your little one grow-up right in front of your eyes, taking your little one for his or her first haircut is very exciting. This is just one of the many ‘first’ experiences you get to share with baby, as it marks a special milestone.
Discover the right time to go. There’s no wrong or right time to head to the salon. It all depends on how much hair your little one was blessed with. If you see hair starting to get in baby’s eyes, it might be time to start planning a trip to see your trusty stylist.
Share the experience with them. The salon is a new and unfamiliar place for baby. Having someone squirt water on your head and hold scissors near your face can be quite intimidating. Show them what’s More >

Parenthood has by far been more crazy, more exhausting, more tiring, and more wonderful than I could have ever guessed it would be. Aiden has just now hit his year and a half mark, and some days I wondered where has the time gone? Where is my sweet little boy that was so small. Well he is still sweet but not so small anymore. With Aiden it was love at first sight, he brought new joy and love to my life. The first three months were hard if you are not used to having to get up every two hours, and there were times when I wondered if I am doing this right. But do not fear if you are a new mom because I learned that there really is no “right” way. Every kid is different and you are doing what is best for you and your child. Also it gets easier after the first three months.
As he gets older it really just gets funnier. He can now play More >
Memorial Day is upon us, which means that summer is officially on our radar! When thinking of summer a few things come to mind: warmer weather, ‘longer’ days, barbeques, fireflies, and much more. But one of the best parts of summer is the fun in the sun you have with your little one! The pool and beach are all great activities, but here are some additional ideas to keep good times rolling all summer long!
Have a Picnic
Gather a basket together with yummy snacks, plenty of water and a bunch toys for the kids, and hit the road to a local park or lake! Don’t forget to bring a few blankets to set up your summer picnic grounds for the family. It’s a great opportunity to take some photos of baby enjoying the warmer weather and will give you mementos that will last forever!
Go to a County/State Fair
You may need a stroller, but taking More >

Moms can never have too many pictures of their pregnant belly or cute face of their little ones, right? GettingMore >
