Go Ahead and Cuff Me

I’m one of those mothers who always forgets to put a picture of myamazingly adorabledaughter in my wallet. Maybe it’s because I feel like she’s always with me (not so far off, really), or because all our pictures are still stored on our digital...

Fill it with Yen

Lately I’ve been on the lookout for a cute little change purse that I can toss into my diaper bag when I head out to the playground; something lighter than the eight-ton monstrosity known as my busting-at-the-seams wallet, and slightly more impervious to leaky...
Who Needs Paper?

Who Needs Paper?

My daughter has recently discovered the wonderful world of coloring. You name it- she isdrawing on it, and sadly, it’s rarely on actual paper. So instead of squashing her inner artiste, I’m thinking a Chalkboard Table from Sparkability might be just the...

The Pod(cast) People

In many ways, technology has made raising children a whole lot easier. Just look at the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser! But one of the greatest inventions for moms and dads, in our opinion, is the podcast. If you’re not fortunate enough to live in Northhampton,...
These Clips Make Me Giddy

These Clips Make Me Giddy

We’re just getting to the point that my daughter might actually have enough hair for a clip. However, I have been forced to put the kibosh on my victory dance due to the poor offerings of sassy hair clips that work on a head with barely any hair. Seriously, if...
Tee shirts squared

Tee shirts squared
