So While You’re Reading 50 Shades of Grey, What Are You Not Doing?

Go ahead, admit it. You’ve let the laundry pile up or you’ve been feeding the kids cereal for dinner because you’ve been too busy reading the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy by EL James. I’ve been doing it too. I find myself taking extra long in the bathroom so get a few pages in. And […]

Fabulous Five

My little stinker is such a joy to be around these days.

Baby Carrier Rain Cover

Baby boy in the Beco carrier with a rain cover. It poured 5 minutes after this was taken and he was totally dry.

I’m so excited about this product. I bought it at Babies ‘R Us on a whim that I might need it on our Hawaii trip. And I’m so glad that I did. Kauai is incredibly beautiful and lush, so of course it rains at a moment’s notice. I got this Mamas and Papas rain cover […]
