It's summer time which means we are on the hunt for places to play this summer. Indoor play, splash pads, shaded parks, etc.
Trying to work while the child naps. Trying to get the child to nap so you can work. Scheduling work, playdates, and life, trying to build or maintain friendships. Wishing there were more hours in the day, trying to pay attention so you don't miss his first steps or first anything, working until midnight or… Continue reading Mom LYFE
I don't know why I'm always so intimidated to wrap in public. But I am and always default to a buckle carrier or ring sling.

It's true, this past weekend we were 'those people' on your airplane. In the past, as a childless couple we would often hope our flights were baby free. We found it comical the amount of times we were sat beside a table full of rambunctious kiddos in restaurants when all we wanted was a quiet night… Continue reading Baby in Flight
