Tweet I just put my little crumb snatchers on the bus for the first day of school.  There were no tears.  In fact, they jumped out of the car and sprinted towards the doors of the bus.  Go figure.  My husband and I looked around at the other parents giving last minute pep talks, holding back tears and waving as the bus pulled off.  My kids did

Tweet After my boys graduated from those thick board books, we purchased tons of books with paper pages.  BAD mistake.  My boys would rip AT LEAST 3 pages per day and let’s face it, books are not cheap!  So this is what I started doing that not only SAVED me money, but also increased my boys’ library at a faster rate. I buy from A

Tweet We have been waiting for a while to add the new Diastasis Rehab splints in the new Beige color.  Back when we started selling Diastasis Rehab splints (7 years ago), we sold both white and black.  We found that an overwhelming majority of people wanted the color black.  So we stuck with selling only black.   The beige color splint was supp

It Is Too Hot...To Be Pregnant
August 20 2012, 0 Comments


I honestly do not know how women can endure pregnancy during the summer months. The body is going through constant changes. Your blood volume increases, which causes your blood vessels to dilate, making your body temperature feel like its rising. Add to that the heat and humidity and you have the ingredients for one miserable woman. I can't imagine living in a warmer climate where its hot year round. So in response to all of the hot and uncomfortable women with child, I am going to give you [...]

Stranger Danger
July 20 2012, 2 Comments


Earlier this week, here in Philadelphia where I live, there was an attempted child abduction caught on tape. A ten-year old girl was walking home with her two-year old brother and a man physically picked her up and tried to take her. She fought him off with tactics that she picked up by watching Law and Order SVU. Her little brother also screamed so loud that it scared the attacker away. I was invited to the local NBC affiliate to speak on-camera about what happened and how I plan on [...]

Pregnancy mask, oily skin, freak acne breakouts, I had it all when I was pregnant with my little ones. Even now my skin gets a bit oily and I sometimes get funky little breakouts, so I am very critical when it comes to skincare products. Recently new skincare company Pretty Mommies contacted me about reviewing their products I have to admit, I was hesitant at first. I mean what makes them so different from the other brands that are out on the market, ALL formulated for and marketed towards pre [...]

House Plants, the New Shower Gift
June 01 2012, 0 Comments


While looking for new and interesting baby shower gifts, I recently came across a brand new company called Green Your Air. Their baby shower gifts are basically PLANTS! NASA has provided research that shows that plants can naturally filter dangerous chemicals that are found in your home. That "new smell" that emanates off of your baby's new crib, mattress and other furniture could be very harmful. And because many new homes are made with man-made materials and are sealed to be more energy ef [...]
