We look forward to the day where our little ones learn to crawl, and quickly that crawling leads to walking and walking somehow turns into running. For me it has always been something that I swear happens overnight which leaves me little time to prepare and get the house “baby proofed.”

Little Olivia wanted a big girl bike.
Her ride-on motorized vehicle was way too slow to keep up with her big sister and she had lost her patience! Unfortunately, after a trip to the toy store, we discovered that Olivia is really really really small – making even the teeniest of big girl bikes too big.

“But Mom… WHAT DOES IT DO?!”
My kids love toys that DO something. If you hand them anything, their first question is “what does it do?!” So unfortunately, a lot of really great toys are dead in the water unless they’re equipped with computer chips, flashing lights and sounds. Until one day, I came across Sprig Toys.
When I first learned that our vacation to the Caribbean was a “go” I immediately bust out into the happy dance. Then reality hit me and I realized that traveling from Hawaii to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands would take us a total of 8 flights (roundtrip), over 10,000 miles, two full days of traveling and through five different time zones… all with a 6 month old infant. Considering we live on an island and have never traveled more than 30 miles in any direction with our son, this travel marathon posed some obvious obstacles.
Ergo, Boba, Beco… the list goes on and on. If you are like me, you have seen about a dozen different baby carriers, and have read or heard many reasons why moms using that particular carrier think it’s THE one to have. Or if not, you at least have felt overwhelmed as to how to make a decision on which one works best for you, your baby or toddler, and your family. As moms, we are all different shapes and sizes, and our babies are all of different temperaments, so these carriers really aren’t “one size fits all”. And if you’ve seen the prices on these things, they don’t exactly lend to being careless about your decision.
“Mom, I slept so good last night…” are never really words I thought I would hear come out of my preschooler’s mouth. They did and she was right.
