Back To School Shopping Favorites 2018

For the first time ever, I’m looking forward to going “back to school!” Maybe it’s because I finally have a child old enough to go back to school. Tommy will be going to pre-school 3 days a week from 8:30-1pm and I am pretty excited although it is 90 minutes shorter and 10 minutes further […]

Potty Training a 2 Year Old, One Week In

At Tommy’s 2-year check up, I was surprised our pediatrician asked if we had thought about potty training. In my head, I figured we would tackle that issue in June before baby #2 when Tommy could run around naked at the Cape. However, our 24-month old started showing signs of being “ready.” He began to […]

Celebrating Tommy’s 2nd Birthday

Tommy turned two on Friday and unlike last year, I didn’t take a million pictures. I barely captured it at all. Who am I because I’m certainly not a blogger?! We started his birthday with a trip to the doctor for his 2 year check up because I am a terrible mother and didn’t realize […]

Why I Chose To Send Tommy To Daycare

I finally bit the bullet and enrolled Tommy in part time day care after months of debating what to do. Early on I thought I’d be able to get my work done during nap time and evenings. But as I grew frustrated with the product I was putting out there, I knew I had to […]

How I Finally Weaned My 18 month old

I didn’t plan to breastfeed past 12 months. I had no idea how hard it would be to stop either. I think I can finally say that I have successfully weaned my 18 month old son. This picture was taken on his half birthday just a week ago! He’s getting so big.  I was a […]

The Beach Baby Set Up – What To Bring With A Toddler

Last year, I shared a post on what to bring to the beach with a baby. Tommy was between 6 and 8 months last summer. He started crawling and could pull himself up on things. He ate sand non stop in addition to breast feeding. We didn’t worry about bringing him snacks to the beach […]

4th of July Weekend Workouts

It’s funny how my last post said Tommy was a one nap kind of guy… He was all smiles last Friday eating his first popsicle. Nick slept in Saturday while I got up early with Tommy. When he finally woke up at 9 am – I wish there was a way to capitalize a number – […]

VIDEO| How To Workout With A Toddler (Fitness Parody)

This video was shot unintentionally. I had planned to do a workout video but timing got messed up and Tommy woke up early. My sitter had already left and we can’t shoot workout videos inside my apartment if he is awake. Soooooo we thought we would try to shoot a workout video outside. Well, as […]

Easy Family Friendly Protein Pancakes or Waffles

May is National Egg Month and I’m partnering with the American Egg board to share a couple of my favorite egg recipes. Get my Green Goddess Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe here. Some of my favorite ways to eat eggs include a runny egg over avocado toast, muffin recipes, omelets, meatloaf, as an egg wash or egg salad for […]

Our Family Travels In London with a Toddler

I had no idea that our trip to London with our 15 month old would go as it did but all I can say is that I got 9 hours of sleep straight through, no interruptions for 4 days and it was glorious. If San Francisco was the worst case scenario for sleeping situations, London was the best. […]
