What this WAHM has been up to…

When Ryan was a baby I was teaching anatomy and physiology classes at our local college, but I’ve been a stay-at-home-mom now for over a year. I’m incredibly lucky that I’m able to stay home with the two kids while they’re still little. I have an open invitation to teach at the college again when I’m ready, but honestly I don’t know what I’ll end up doing.

I’ve never been good at sitting still… I’m happiest when I’m busy and I like being a hard worker. My passion used to be with the sciences

Thank you.

I just wanted to take a second of your time to say THANK YOU. This blog obviously wouldn’t be what it is without my readers, so I owe you guys a lot.

I know I put up two sponsored posts in a row this week and I apologize. I do choose the sponsored posts I’ll accept very carefully (I get a lot of offers and I turn a lot down) because I care about what I’m putting in front of your eyes, but I still know that sponsored

New blog design!

Did ya notice?! 🙂 I know people that read this blog on their reader or by email probably haven’t clicked over and seen the new design yet… so if that’s YOU, come over, check it out! I’ve already received so many compliments on the header and I wish I could say I did it myself.

I found this etsy shop that sells adorable prints: The Art of Nidhi Chanani. The owner, Nidhi, is a freelance artist and designer in San Francisco. I

Back to Blogging: I’m not creative

Today’s post topic from the SITS girls for their Back to Blogging event is to repost a title you’re proud of. I searched through my past posts and I’ve learned one thing: I suck at being creative. My blog post titles always just tell it like it is. “Ryan’s 3 months old!” or “Co-Sleeping Issues” or “I got a push present!” La. De. Da. So I struggled a bit with this one–but at least it made me realize that maybe I should try a bit harder?! Didn’t know so much effort needed to be

Back to Blogging: a post to read

All week I’m writing on topics suggested by the SITS girls to help people get back to blogging now that summer is over. Yesterday I reposted my very first post ever. Today I’m supposed to repost one of my favorites… a post I wish more people had read. I didn’t even have one in mind so I went searching through them all and I started at the beginning. Honestly? I couldn’t do it. I was scrolling past the names of the posts and of

New blog!! Help me name it!

I’m going to make another blog to separate my personal posts from my reviews and giveaways. I know some of you like both in one spot, but I think I mainly have readers who are here for my personal posts… and other readers who are here only for my giveaways. Baby Dickey will be my personal blog (because that’s how it started). My new blog will host the reviews and giveaways… but I need help naming it!! I want to keep it connected to “baby dickey” so it’s easily known they’re both mine–and they’ll
