Recently I had an interesting thing happen to me. I was given a surprise party in my house. I had no idea, I was not expecting it and quite frankly I'm pretty impressed that my family was able to pull this off. So much so that I'm sharing tips on how you too can throw a surprise party for someone, in their own home.
A new trend (that I happen to be 100% behind) is the "push present". For those of you who don't know, a push present is a gift given to the woman who just carried a baby inside of her for 9 months and then literally "pushed" it out of her. The name isn't great because obviously mamas who get C-sections should get a gift too so it could called a Labor Present or something more general, but I digress. To put it simply it is a gift that is given by the father of the child to the mother of the child basically saying "thank you for going through hell to have this child". Sounds great right? Not according to mom shammers!
When you become a parent there are lots of things that you expect will happen and then you get hammered with a bunch of things you'd never expect to happen. One of those being, my 1 year old LOVES hard boiled eggs. Like, is this normal? As the hubby likes to say, "eggs are her favorite fruit" and since we've been hard boiling so many eggs I've decided to share the one major tip for how to get those hard boiled eggs peeled quickly and painlessly.
Disney Junior Dance Party! On Tour
If you have fans of Disney Junior and have been to either Walt Disney World or Disneyland than chances are you've taken in the show Disney Junior - Live on Stage! (WDW) or Disney Junior Dance Party! (DL). The latter show has hit the road for Disney Junior Dance Party! On Tour so families who can't get out to California can have fun with Mickey and the Roadsters, Sofia the First, Fancy Nancy and The Puppy Dog Pals. Recently my family spent the afternoon at the Disney Junior Dance Party! on Tour show in our state and it was a blast!

Ahh yes, the weather is getting cooler and Pumpkin Spice is in the air which means we are getting closer to Halloween. This also means we are getting closer to all of the articles that talk about what a terrible mother you are if you allow your daughter to dress up as a princess for Halloween.
By now you may have noticed that I consider my dog an important part of our family. I've thrown birthday parties for him and I described how I felt he prepared me to be a human mom, since I was already a dog mom. When we found out we were pregnant, we knew A LOT was going to change for our four-legged friend. But one thing I knew for certain? I was NOT going to kick him out of our bed.
Picture this: You’ve decided to formula feed and you’re researching brands of formula online but you aren’t sure which is best for baby but a decision has to be made, and fast. Sound familiar? This is the exact scenario that brought to life Organic Baby Food Shop.
Once family and friends know labor has begun and there will soon be baby, they wait with bated breath for the first picture of the little cutie. Dads are snapping away from the moment the baby comes out and back in the "old days" the first photos taken of baby were of he or she on the scale and then wrapped up all nice and clean in a blanket. But now with "skin to skin" being the new recommendation, these are the first photos that are taken and subsequently shared. Quite frankly. I think it needs to stop.
