Every new mom does it. Just when you are falling asleep you get scared about SIDS and you feel the urge to go check if your little one is still breathing. All the hormones are going crazy in your body and you feel super protective. Good news! There is finally a baby heart rate monitor that helps us sleep better.
Do you want to learn exactly how full-time bloggers run their business? I am talking full-time bloggers that do not blog about blogging. They have “retired their husbands” or “hired their husbands” type of bloggers. 🙂
One of the questions in our playgroups was always, when do babies drop to one nap? Naptime is an important time for kids, but let’s be honest, it is also an awesome break for parents.
It gives our kid’s bodies the recharge that it needs to make it through the rest of the day. Once kids leave the baby stage of sleeping a majority of the day, they typically nap twice a day. The hardest part is when it comes time to transition from two naps to one.
There is nothing better than a game your child enjoys playing by themselves.
Whether you have an only child or lots of time with just one child in the waiting room while the other child is doing their sport or lessons, having single player games for your child to play can help the wait go quickly. These are tested and loved by boy my kids and some friends of mine. Both of us have kids that have to wait for siblings at sports practices.
You have offered your baby countless foods and used all sorts of silly tricks like “Open up for the airplane!” but your baby is still refusing to eat anything besides their bottle and maybe some puffs. Frustration sets in and you want to pull your hair out. When your baby won’t eat solids it is hard to find the patience to figure out the problem.
Say it isn’t so. That sweet little one has figured out how to escape their crib. Most kids get to this point at one time or another. It happens at different ages for every child, making it pretty unpredictable. If you are one of the lucky ones, your child may not do this but, more often than not; your baby climbing out of crib is going to test your parenting.

The fact that October is RSV awareness month brings back scary memories in our family.
In February of 2010 my sons were both sick with what we thought were colds. One of my sons was worse than the other. The new symptom he had that I had never seen before was fast breathing. Talk about scary. I started using Dr. Google and thought, “oh no, is this a symptom of RSV”?
Trying to get a toddler to stop hitting can seem an awful lot like trying to run a marathon in quicksand, with bricks tied to your feet. Contrary to what it may seem like, it is possible to curb the behavior.

Every mom at some point after having multiple children has to make a major decision. Minivan vs SUV.
Some people have a huge stigma with driving a minivan and think it is not cool and some people embrace it. I have had both a minivan and a SUV and love both for different reasons. If you are deciding which vehicle is right for you I will give you my pros and cons of driving both.
Have you ever picked up a kid for carpool and the mom asks to put the sports bag in your trunk and you freeze? If you open your trunk you know it will be super embarrassing but you have to do it. With all of our sports bags, outdoor chairs and blankets we need every weekend, just adding in one or two school bags makes our trunk look unorganized and messy. The trick is how to organize your car trunk and have it stay organized.
I went online to check out how all the super organized moms in the world keep their trunk looking great. Here are the 7 best organized trunks that I found.
