Want to be my friend?


How do you start socializing a 16 month old? An only child? Any kid?

I have no idea where to start, or rather I didn’t but after talking with my friend Nick G I’m getting a better idea. He made some great suggestions and I’m going to follow up and research some ideas. Finding a swim class sounds really fun. My ninja LOVES water! I truly believe she’d live in the tub or the kiddie pool in our back yard if I let her.

Is this just an only child issue? Is it because I’m not a social person and have no friends with small children? Continue reading “Want to be my friend?”

A Day in the Life: Toddler Edition


5:00am – 6:00am: Wake up at some point and look around confused. I fell asleep on the couch and remember waking up a few times in my bed but I cried out for Mommy so she took me out to the couch and laid with me so I wouldn’t be afraid anymore, it’s dark and lonely at night in my room. Now I’m in bed with Daddy and Mommy is missing.

6:00am – 7:00am: I’m usually grumpy from waking up too early, closer to 5:00am, or happy because I woke up closer to 6:00am. Regardless, I’ve sat with my Gigi and drank some milk and am now roaming the house. Turns out Mommy was in the bathroom playing with her hair and putting that funny stuff on her face.

My Favorite Girl


I noticed that it’s been a while since I talked about my favorite girl.

For those that follow me or have enjoyed my posts on being a first time parent this is for you!

Shit is happening fast!

That’s the first thing that pops into my head. Two months ago she was still an infant, that is no longer the case! In two short months my baby left and this toddler took her place! How did that happen?!?! Continue reading “My Favorite Girl”

Little Kims Bibs!


Thank you to Little Kims for the complimentary bibs. I received them in exchange for an honest review. No money has or will be exchanged. My review is my own words.

That being said….

I feel like it was an extremely lucky twist of fate that I was scrolling through one of the blog groups I frequent and came across a post asking if anyone was interested in reviewing some bibs for a New York based company.

Being a brand ambassador and/or product reviewer is something I’ve been slowing trying to break into this year. These bibs are my first real shot, so here goes! Continue reading “Little Kims Bibs!”

#Momlife: Year One


I know that I’ve been a mother, technically, since the moment of inception but this post isn’t about that. It’s about my first year as a mother to a living, breathing, human-being.

To say that it has changed me and my world is a total and complete understatement. Of course it has, if it didn’t I would completely judge myself. Creating, growing and nurturing a human being is a life changing experience. It is always on my mind.

Am I doing this right?

Am I doing that right?

Why isn’t she sleeping through the night?

Do all her teeth have to come in at once?

Why don’t I understand all her cries and whines? Shouldn’t I know these things by now? Why do they keep changing? Continue reading “#Momlife: Year One”
