Skip Hop: Playspot Interlocking Foam Tiles

It’s hard not to fall in love with these amazingly adorable and modern foam tiles from Skip Hop. I have been admiring these for quite some time now. They are the perfect addition to any home. From the design to the color schemes, they will fit into any home. I also love how you can customize the size. Have a larger space you would like covered? They sell additional foam tiles to add on. Have a smaller space to cover? You can take out some foam tiles and choose which size will be appropriate for your house.


We Love Annie’s Homegrown

At our house, we are healthy eaters. We always fill our shopping cart ¾ of the way with produce, we only eat natural ingredients and we eat as much organic food as we can. Luckily, we live in Santa Cruz, a virtual Mecca for farm-fresh, wholesome, organic foods.

Breastfeeding Basics: Part 3

After delivering my son I was so anxious to get out of the hospital and back to my own comfy bed that hubby and I pushed for a 24 hour hospital discharge.

This book is a “children’s book.” I use quotations because once I tell you the title, you will realize that though it will make your day, you can never EVER read it to your kids (unless you’re willing to make all other parents frown at you). So, without further ado, I give you…


Adventures of Cloth Diapering: Step 1- PREPARING

Quite honestly this whole cloth diapering adventure has me very nervous. When Austin was about 2 months old I decided I wanted to cloth diaper. There are so many benefits to cloth diapering. One of course being economically better. Did you know that a disposable diaper takes about an estimated 250-500 years to decompose? GROSS! Another benefit is that it is CHEAPER. The average household spends over $3,000 on disposables on just ONE child. With Cloth Diapers you can save an estimated $2,000. Head on over to Banana Peels Diapers for a break down. Of course if you have another child, you can reuse your previous cloth diapers for even MORE savings! Plus, a child wearing cloth diapers is typically easier to potty train! WooHoo! So why did I wait so long to make the switch?
