You can have a career, a side job and a personal life and still be a good mom, I think.

You can have a career, a side job and a personal life and still be a good mom, I think.

I’ve been trying to write this post for weeks, long before I joined the Blog Hop on the topic. I can’t seem to get the words out with any sort of meaning behind them. I want to say I’m a working mom and proud. I […]

DIY Super Hero Birthday Party

Little man turned one! And to celebrate we had a DIY Super Hero Birthday Party that turned out amazingly. We had a bounce house and a hot dog cart, capes, a photo booth complete with super hero photo booth props, and the biggest hit of the day: a Punch for a Prize game board.

This party was a good combination of DIY and store bought. I went a little above and beyond financially because it was my son’s first, but the DIY elements helped bring the cost down.

Flying with a baby – Part 2

Flying with a baby – Part 2

Flying with a baby – Part 2

Several months ago I gave you all a few tips on flying with an infant in lap and after a couple more flights, now with a toddler rather than a newborn, I’m back to expand on them.

flying with a baby - pt 2

In case you forgot, I recommended that you should forego the stroller / car seat, take help from anyone who offers (or even who doesn’t!), and sit in the aisle seat, among others. Since then, little Z and I have flown a few more times, and he’s become a lot more mobile, so I’ve got a couple more tips to share for flying with a baby (who’s mobile!)

Infant Sign Language – Baby’s first words

Infant Sign Language Wouldn’t it be great if you could communicate with your infant? If instead of trying to decipher his different cries, he could just tell you what he needed? Well, it is actually possible and not all that difficult either with baby sign language. Zay […]

Sleep Training my 10 month old

Sleep Training my 10 month old

Sleep Training my 10 month old in 8 days or less

Zay has never been a great sleeper. Think back to his 4 month sleep regression that lasted well over 2 months. Also understand that I have had to physically rock him to sleep every night and for every nap. He has never, and I mean literally never not even one single time, dozed off on his own. It has always required some sort of motion, and work, on my part.

Lately though, he has been unbearable at bedtime. We sit in the glider for 2-3 hours nodding in and out of sleep. The second I put him in his crib, no matter how long his eyes had been shut in my arms, he pops up onto all fours (sometimes even to a full stand) and begins screaming his head off. I pick him up and his eyes immediately shut and he goes limp again. We do this for hours. Every. Single. Night.
