patemm pad Review & Giveaway

Sidney was intrigued by the pretty patemm pad...

Changing a diaper on the go is never fun. Honestly, changing a diaper anywhere isn’t fun but throw in a squirmy, poop-covered newborn (or toddler) and my anxiety level shoots through the roof. I usually end up in a Target bathroom with an epic blow out, baby’s clothes ruined and all I have in my giant, never-ending diaper bag is a bag of broken up goldfish and one wipe.

Jumping Sidney & ExerSaucer Contest


One of my favorite memories of Jackson as a baby was his first time in a jumper (you can see the video here). It's now Sidney's turn to jump and she has a brand new ExerSaucer Jump & Learn to use.

Five Years


Five years ago, I walked down an aisle to join hands with my best friend and we became husband & wife. I knew you were my soul mate, but I had no idea how much much my love for you would grow. Today, I love you more than I ever knew was possible. When I walked into your office for the first time and shook your hand there was a feeling I had never experienced. Somehow I knew you were the one … [Read more...]

Saturday’s Top 5 Laughs


This was a great week, despite my entire house getting sick (besides me), and I'm happy to join Mel from The Mommyhood Chronicle's blog hop. Here's my top 5: 1. I was getting dressed earlier this week when I heard Jackson climb onto the bed and say "Sidney hungry, wanna eat?" while he lifted up his shirt and sat next to her.
