Boyz in the Hoodie

Boyz in the Hoodie

As much time as I spend on the web tracking down cool clothes for kids, I’m admit I’m still often at a loss for gifts when I hear a friend has a boy on the way. If only I liked those sailor suits, things would be a whole lot easier. And then I discovered...
Maternity Clothes Guaranteed to Fit

Maternity Clothes Guaranteed to Fit

Nothing can prepare a first-time pregnant friend for the ordeal that is maternity shopping. Except for maybe you. That is, if you have it in you to dash her expectations that she’ll look adooooorable in those chic low-rise jeans for the entire nine months....
A Bag for Every Season

A Bag for Every Season

Why is it that it’s acceptable to have fifteen purses in your closet that serve very specific functions, but then people look at you funny if you want to register for more than one diaper bag? Sometimes a girl needs a little variety. And there’s no more...

Couch Potatoes No More

I’ve always been a movie geek. I love looking for gaffes, figuring out that they filmed Toronto for New York, or trying to determine who that guys is who was in that other movie where he either played a cop or a surfer. Needless to say, I can’t wait until...

Mommy Needs a Daquiri

Mommy Needs a Daquiri

I’m all for books that teach my kids more than just their animals. I mean, cripes, if we have to take the time to read it to them 500 times, it might as well teach them other things too, right? Like how to make their own breakfast, mow the lawn, or even better,...
