After the Happily Ever After comes parenting. I’ve always wondered what the Princesses would be like as moms.
Her mom life: Merida has her own set of triplets she can’t seem to potty train. This drives her mad, especially when they pee around the potty. She often scolds, “If I can hit a bullseye from a hundred yards, you can tinkle in the toilet!”
Her mom life: Ariel is constantly battling her husband over how much freedom they should give … Keep Reading!!!
Attempting to Prepare for Twins
I’ll admit it, I found it very hard to be excited about my twins while I was pregnant. I had moments but most of the time it was sheer terror about what was coming our way. Previously, I wrote about some of these struggles; It’s Okay to Not Be Excited About an Unplanned Pregnancy. As my July 20th EDD approached this fear only intensified and I was 50/50 wanting them out because the pregnancy … Keep Reading!!!
We have seen some extremely beautiful photos of brides breastfeeding in their gowns. However, it was photographer Lindsay Palmer‘s wedding day series that stopped us in our tracks. This series not only features the bride breastfeeding her baby, but the bridesmaids breastfeeding their babies as well.
This special moment happened during Jamie Riddell’s wedding last May. She and her bridesmaids all had breastfeeding children at the time, and each would take periodic breaks to nurse their little ones while … Keep Reading!!!
When 27-year-old Kaylee Goemans received a call from her doctor that she needed to take her 6 week old son, Dominic, to the ER because of complications with an intestinal disorder, she rushed right in. Having lost her job when 28 weeks pregnant, making it so she didn’t qualify for government maternity leave pay, she opted to park on the road. Paying $3 for 4 hours of parking, rather than $15 in the hospital lot. She thought, because the tests … Keep Reading!!!

When I found out I was pregnant with our first child I immediately knew I would breastfeed, it never really crossed my mind to do anything else or that it would be a challenge. I am thankful that I was kind of “naïve” about this because I think if I had known a lot of what I do now I might have been petrified, cautious, or reluctant. I, thankfully, had a great support system. My older sister successfully breastfed my … Keep Reading!!!
Pucker is a collaborative photo project by David Wile and April Maciborka that documents the always epic first taste of lemon for children. Most of us have had that camera ready just waiting to see what kind of reaction our own kids give to their first lemon. As the project shows, there’s such a range of reactions but not one is lacking in cuteness.
Admit it, if you haven’t already given that first taste of lemon you’re going to tonight.… Keep Reading!!!
As parents, we’re always concerned with our children’s safety. From the moment they take their first breath, we’re on the lookout for potential dangers. And when they get their first smartphones, the normal everyday dangers increase dramatically.
Although it can be helpful, expanding technology use with kids isn’t necessarily a good thing. The following are a few things to look out for when your kids are online.
Unfortunately, people aren’t always who they say they are. This is … Keep Reading!!!
Traditionally, playgrounds are for kids. I’m sure most of us have mused about needing adult playgrounds at one time or another. Good news! They exist!! Spain has been building them for a while now for their aging senior population, and now they are starting to pop up in the US as well.
Sarah Pinsky, of KaBOOM! explains some … Keep Reading!!!
A Texas woman gave birth to her third baby, in the front seat of her car, while on the freeway. Her husband caught the entire event on video.
Reacting just as my husband would, the new father of three high fives his wife and then muses about if they can save money on paying for the birth center now.
Warning: While no nudity is seen, the video is unedited so if birth makes you uncomfortable I’d avoid clicking.
Congratulations to … Keep Reading!!!
When it comes to keeping kids happy, safe and healthy, parents do all they can. From applying sunscreen, to purchasing car seats, to making the backyard kid-friendly there are a million small ways Mom and Dad protect their kids and show them they care. But, at what age should parents start to educate their children on the basics of home-safety? The answer is, any age.
Car seat safety can cause even the most level-headed parent to break out in a cold sweat.
Long gone are the days when babies could face forward in theirs seats at 12 months of age.
The simple fact is that today’s safety guidelines recommend that children well past the age of two be placed in a rear-facing seat in the back seat of the vehicle. However, the safest place doesn’t always mean the easiest option for the parties involved.… Keep Reading!!!
