registry raves

We started researching the best baby gear shortly after we found out we were pregnant.  By the time we found out we were having a girl, we knew what stroller and car seat we wanted.  Friends and family chimed in with registry must-haves, and combined with the check list the baby store gave us, we […]

On Men And Praise

I’ve noticed that many people prefer not to rely too much on praise in their relationships.

Emergency Tooth Fairy Kit

As little ones get older, we get less and less firsts.  My 6 year old son Henry’s tooth is almost out, and we can already see the new one growing in.  This will be our “first tooth”  loss. To say that we are excited would be the world’s biggest understatement. I am making, upon request, […]
