Minty Fresh

Moms are people too which, I know, is hard for some non-moms to believe. Sometimes we even like to shop where cool people shop. And sometimes–just once in a very blue moon–we like dress like we’re not moms. You know, pants from this century? Shirts with no formula stains?

Sucking Face

All hail the binkie, that great pacifier (pun intended) of babies, and best friend to sleep-deprived new mamas across the globe. However if I have one complaint about them, it’s that they fit ever so perfectly out the crib slats at 3 am. I have more experience with this than I’d care to detail.

And when you’re spending big bucks on decor anyway, shouldn’t your nursery art actually be…well, art?

Reinventing the Highchair

I’m pretty low-maintenance in the "carrying baby gear around" category. Okay, I’m pathetic. We rarely remember to bring bibs when we go out to dinner, let alone a portable high chair But as I’ve learned, it does make feeding her a little tricky in a hotel room or at the home of a friend with no young kids.

Shiny Pretty Things

I am what you might call a classic mom when it comes to accessorizing. It’s easier to wear the same pair of diamond studs every day than to navigate the continuum between tasteful, trendy, and tacky. Boring? Guilty as charged.
