Ryan’s Dino-Mite Dinosaur Party!

My baby turned three at the end of December, just after Christmas. He wasn’t feeling well on his actual birthday–we just barely got him to blow out his candles and eat some cake, but he didn’t even want to open presents! The horror. His party was planned for that Saturday, but because of all the illness going around we postponed it to the following week, January 5th.

The theme? A Dino-Mite Dinosaur Celebration!!! Ryan-o-saurus is turning three!

I’ll tell ya, it’s tough having a party right after the holidays…

party time for the mamas with MAM

MAM is an Austrian company that started in 1976 when they sold their first pacifier. Now they sell over 40 million baby products every year! Pacifiers, bottles, sippy cups, toothbrushes, and teethers… MAM products help with child development across many stages.

Recently, I was fortunate enough to receive a massive package from MAM to host my very own party! And when I say massive, I mean HUGE. I think the box was bigger than me, I was so excited to open it! It was filled with products

I can’t believe we’re having a baby girl

When I was pregnant with Ryan, I KNEW it was a boy. I was positive. And I was right. With this one… I had no idea. I kept telling everyone that I was sure it was a boy, but mainly because I was trying to prepare myself for that outcome. I love my baby boy and would adore another baby boy, don’t get me wrong….. but of course I also really wanted to have a girl!

So I thought if I convinced myself it was a boy, I wouldn’t be too disappointed when it

How has the internet changed motherhood?

If it weren’t for social media, I can tell you with 100% certainty that we would not be cloth diapering. Would I have made it breastfeeding this long? Would I have found ICAN and started my own chapter? Would I have found support after my cesarean or would I have continued feeling completely alone?

Who knows. But I do know that the internet and social media have drastically changed or assisted motherhood for me and I’m sure for many others. It’s the first place I go with a question–who better to ask than other

NCAA Themed Office Party

This year for March Madness I wanted to do something fun down at the office. I was reading in an article that companies lose about $4 billion during the NCAA tournament due to lost productivity. If it’s going to happen, why not make it a fun experience? As you know I work for my Father in law and pretty much my husband’s whole family works at the small, family run business. There’s no way they could say no to me, especially when they saw what I had planned and
