Whether you had an “oopsy” or methodically, thought out, well-planned pregnancy, your bundle of joy, snuggled in your womb is just waiting to be born.

Today, many families are burdened with confusing their best intentions to give kids all that they want with what they need. Nice cars, the newest gaming systems, the best clothes, the newest electronics – all to help keep their kid “with the times”. But do our kids really need all of this? Are these necessities, or are they taking over our lives, deepening our debt, and adding to our stress level? The saying goes, “we were born with nothing and we will die with nothing,” so, what is the point of overworking ourselves to provide every possible thing to our kids? What happened to kids working for what they wanted? Why do parents feel the need to stress over providing the biggest and best, when really the moderately priced off brand works exactly the same? Why can’t parents say no?
Almost half of the households in the United States have a dog. Adding a new baby into the family can change the dynamics and the routines in your home. Sometimes it can be traumatic for your first furry love, but it doesn’t have to be like that. You always can find ways for your dog to be an active member of your child’s development.

What if there were a workout that could help you both emotionally and physically, all while stimulating and socializing your baby? Stroller Strides is the answer.
A woman’s staple makeup product is mascara; every makeup bag has one, and if you’re playing by the rules, you’re buying a new tube every three months. Even if you’re forgoing a full face morning makeup application – who are you really trying to impress in the carpool lane anyways? – we can betcha that a quick swipe of mascara subconsciously makes its way across your lashes. Let’s face it ladies, we all want Twiggy looking eyes, that pop and shine, with lush lashes a mile long.
Although wanting the lusted after celebrity windows to your soul, we probably would prefer going a more natural route instead of sticky fakes and extensions, and lord knows what other pricey and exotic treatments they are using these days. Well, for us regular ‘ol ladies who prefer au naturale with little to no maintenance or work – we’re not lazy, we’re moms, c’mon – Rodan + Fields has come to our rescue with their life changing – no, we’re not being dramatic, it’s our EYES we’re talking about here! – new Lash Boost serum, that easily and gradually – because good things come to those who wait – gives your lashes more length, thickness, and darkness.
Spring is here! With every spring season comes change; you needn’t look any further than your window to realize this. Snow banks melt and are replaced with green leaves. Short afternoons and early bedtimes are replaced by long warm evenings with adult beverages and EVENTUALLY barbecues. Spring is a magical time of transformation.

The first time I met Jennifer we were sitting beside each other in an introductory theater class in college. On top of our overachieving, Type A personalities and a similar sense of humor, we ended up being in the small handful of people in that class who actually read the assigned plays and who shared opinions in class. We quickly became friends. Over our four years of college together, we shared dozens of classes. We shared a love of literature and writing and didn’t understand anyone who didn’t love a good Jane Austen novel. We still don’t!
It’s hard enough for Mom to cook dinner, keep the house looking tidy and fold your underwear. Your wife is a Goddess and the last thing she needs is for Dad to come home and be a zombie. Even the Mom who gets help at home with grandparents, has hired a nanny, or even has a husband that is into folding laundry is going to be burned out keeping the ship upright – the way she wants.
No matter what hat Mom most frequently wears at home, and there is probably 20 different hats being worn – there is little doubt, especially in the formative first 6 years, that Mom does most of the heavy lifting. The very least the involved Father can do is support her as best as possible. This means being focused at the dinner table.
