Sprig Toys, Eco-friendly and Fun

“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.

Flying with FlyeBaby

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? Baby Carrier Trial To The Rescue

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.

Tech Talk: The Nintendo 3DS

Welcome to Jess T.’s Tech Tuesday, where all your geek are belong to us!

A while ago, I wrote about how my daughters love the Nintendo DS. They’ve each got one and they bring them everywhere they go. With a wide collection of games, we thought it couldn’t get any better. Then we added this shiny new member to the family.

VitaFusion: Gummies for Grownups!

For clarification, I’d like to state that I am a fully grown adult and I am not a wuss.

Ok, now that that’s out of the way, let’s get started. I LOVE GUMMY VITAMINS! Yes, its true. I take gummy vitamins every morning and they are delicious. This does not in any way make me any less of a serious business adult. (Maybe it does a little…)

Breastfeeding Basics Part 6

When I was in college we had a coffee table full of nonsense books for easy entertainment. In that stack of books was a lovely little flip through Kama Sutra guide complete with pictures and positions. Sadly, my college days are long gone and my coffee table book of ahem positions are of a less exciting variety.

Yummie Tummie – Your Body Will Thank You

I’ve been pretty insecure with my body since having my youngest child. Sure I dropped the weight quickly (thanks to breastfeeding) but my body has NEVER been the same since. Have you noticed that even when you are at your pre pregnancy weight that your pants and shirts fit differently? For me, the waists of my pants fit normal, but it’s my thighs that still don’t fit. For my shirts, everything seems to have gotten shorter and do I even need to mention the lack of shape and “muffin top” going on. UGH… One day I swear I will have my body finally back, but for now I will let you in on my huge secret… Yummie Tummie.
