Grow, Baby Hair! (Damn You.)

When I find gorgeous ribbon ponytail holders, like the handmade ones at Gazzu, I can’t help but wish that my daughter had long thick hair. And I know I shouldn’t complain considering I thought we’d be stuck in baby hair clip land forever.  Mom...

Baby Jail Makeover

As a fairly frequent flyer, I’ve always packed my own portable play yard because, well, you know why. The thought of using a hotel crib or that borrowed play yard that’s been growing mold in your friend’s basement for a few years gives me...
