We made a big wish, and now we couldn't be happier!

And Then There Were Four

Yes, you’re reading that right.  The Confetti family is growing! We made a big wish, and now we couldn’t be happier! Amazingly, we found out on Colin’s birthday that I was pregnant again.  We have gone through every emotion under the sun while warming up to the idea of being pregnant again (fear, anxiety, relief, [...]

The Beauty of the Parents-Only Staycation

I love my child.  Like, capital L-O-V-E, love. But these days, taking care of a toddler whose greatest joy lies in testing his limits and throwing tantrums when he doesn’t get his way means that I appreciate my child-free time a little bit more than I once did.  We have spent several weekends away from [...]

Second Birthday Inspirations – A Dual Themed Bash

Colin’s birthday is coming up, and when we started planning his birthday party, I wanted to come up with a playful theme based on one of his favorite books for his small party.  He absolutely loves the whole series of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie books by Laura Numeroff, so several months ago, [...]
