Don’t Hate The Paranoid Mom

Don’t Hate The Paranoid Mom

They say when you become a parent for the first time, you are extra cautious. You have top-of-the-line everything from your diapers to the stroller. The hottest baby gadgets to hit the market fill your home. Every baby book is read from cover to cover. Every sharp corner is cushioned and stairway gated. Come your second, things get a bit more lax. Whoops – the pacifier fell on the floor, but there is no need to worry, for the 5 second rule is always in effect. Somehow, our family did things backwards. Our first daughter was born and people would comment on how relaxed…

The Ultimate Mom’s Night Out

0

  Thanks to Mom, Baby & Beyond, South Florida Mom’s got to head to The Ultimate Mom’s Night Out for a fun night out away from the poopy diapers, homework, dirty dishes and piles of laundry to mingle with some brand name vendors, local businesses and sip on some wine with other moms. As I walked up to the Marriott in Heron Bay, I was greeted by some bumpin’ tunes blaring from family-friendly cars lined up from Coral Springs Auto Mall and fabulous shopping from The Trendy Truck (check them out on FB & Twitter, too!) So before you even walked in to the event, you could tell it was going…

Frozen Snow Globe Craft For Kids

Frozen Snow Globe Craft For Kids

  If you have a young child, chances are they are slightly obsessed with Disney’s Frozen. My daughter has shirts, socks, books, hair bows, pajamas – you name it, we have it. The movie plays on a loop on any given day. My 3 year old will bust out with ‘Let it Go’ in the middle of Publix. Yeah, slightly obsessed. So on days when we are stuck in the house due to Baby O’s nap schedule, I like to have arts and crafts handy to keep her occupied. I had a bunch of glitter and bought some snowflake confetti…

5 Parenting Contradictions That Haunt My Dreams

0

      Before getting married and having kids, my husband and I had a lot of opinions about certain parental topics and child-raising techniques. Believe me, if I could go back in time and tell us to STFU, I would. It’s humorous to even believe that we were this naive before we became parents and how strongly we felt about a few topics back then. On Mealtime Before kids: Our child will never EVER dictate to us what they want to eat. We will make one meal and one meal only. I will never be the parent that makes…

5 Things I Learned While At Disney World

0

We spent the toddler’s 3rd birthday in the most magical place on earth – Disney World. The kids love it, we love and it is only 3 hours away so why the hell not, right? Well, as we were herding through the crowds of Magic Kingdom, I couldn’t help but people watch and observe all things grand. And by grand I mean crazy. I was shocked, awed, disturbed, surprised and entertained all at the same time. When we were driving home, I couldn’t help but think about everything I saw while in the most magical place on earth. – That…

Back To School Shopping @ The Children’s Place!

0

Oh yeah, you heard me right – it’s Back To School time! Crazy how in a blink of an eye the best few months of the year are coming to an end and all the kids will be bussed back to school in the next few weeks. Next to school supplies, clothes shopping is number one on parents list of to-do’s for the new school year and in my house this will be our first! Tear. Thinking about sending our 2 1/2 year old to preschool this year is bitter sweet, but shopping for new clothes helps ease the pain…

Hasta La Vista, Pacifier…..Or Not

0

My girl Ava has been completely obsessed with her Mimi aka pacifier, since we got home from the hospital 2 years ago. We always knew the day would come where we’d have to take it away from her so we don’t have to spend thousands in orthodontia work when shes a teen. Oh and all those other issues that arise with the binkies, too. But it was breaking our hearts to take it away, even though we knew it was for her own good. She literally loves this froggy to pieces and sobs when ever its not with her and…

Why Being Pregnant Sucks

0

It’s no secret on how I feel about being pregnant. I will tell anyone and everyone who asks that it just plain out sucks. The outcome is the absolute best thing in the world but the 9 1/2 months leading up to that moment is just….rough. I know there are many out there that just don’t see it the way I do, some might agree but just don’t want to admit it because they feel like they will be looked at as a terrible person, and there are a few that whole-heartedly agree. I don’t think feeling this way makes…
