Vamos A La Playa

Vamos A La Playa

I’m all for a cute halter bikini on me (when I’m in my best possible shape) but on my 3 year old? Call me a fuddy-duddy butI’d prefer something that covers her just a bit more. Besides, slathering suntan lotion all over a constantly moving little...

Future Jeff Gordons, Have a Seat

For some reason I’m always paralyzed when it comes to picking out kids’ furniture. Every time I see something I’m sure I want, I find something else and thus never end up with anything at all. Now I’ve got one more option to add to the pool...

Oh, Those Pesky UV Rays

Oh, Those Pesky UV Rays

I have never understood why sunblock is scented like pina coladas, particularly for kids. Do you really want your child smelling like a drunken cruise ship tourist stumbling around Key West? Dr. T’s Supergoop! is my idea of the perfect sunblock. Along with all...
Fleeced!

Fleeced!

While I’m grateful for all the lightweight summer blankets I’ve received for my new baby, I still wanted something warm and cuddly for those overly frigid stores, restaurants, and my grandmother’s condo in Florida, a.k.a. The Air Conditioning Capital...
