A couple of weeks ago, the "Snack Mom" at my son's soccer game brought a couple of boxes of Rice Krispies' for the boys after their game ended.  The Rice Krispie Treats had the latest packaging - wrapping that allows Mom to write on them. Snack Mom had written "Great Game!" and "Good Job!" on all of the Rice Krispie Treats, which I thought was … [Read more...]

A lot has changed since Big was born. (I know. I keep saying that, right? I feel like such a grandma!) But it has. Its been seven years and I shake my head, every now and then, thinking about the changes.

A couple of weeks ago, I was out to lunch with my good friend Colleen from Classy Mommy.  We were talking about our eating habits and she mentioned that she's been considering doing one of those juice cleanses.  She had me at cleanse.  I've been wanting to do one myself for awhile - just out of sheer curiosity and a need to be healthier and get rid … [Read more...]

Before I even received my first pitch on the latest product release from Bendaroos, I already heard about it from my two little walking informercials (aka my children.)  As soon as I heard the words "glow" and "Bendaroos," I knew what the next item on the birthday/Christmas list was to be.

I've been a huge fan of Annabel Karmel for a while and was so thrilled to hear that she teamed up with Infantino for a line of feeding products, exclusive to Babies R Us.  The British children's nutrition expert has written 18 books -- I used her First Meals book as a guide and for puree recipes when my two oldest children started solids. Aimed … [Read more...]
