Kid-Friendly Restaurant Reviews: Cracker Barrel

Cracker Barrel was one of the restaurants I singled out early on as “kid-friendly.”  I’ve been lucky enough to work from home, so I often have the opportunity to go out to lunch with my parents – and Cracker Barrel is one of our most frequent visits. Kid-Friendly Atmosphere Cracker Barrel has their own wooden high […]

Picky Kids and Vegetables

TJ’s been getting pickier and pickier about what he’ll eat at any given meal.  He’ll turn up his nose (and flip over his bowl) at anything that isn’t macaroni and cheese for four days straight, and then on the fifth day, he won’t touch the stuff.  He gets his fruits in most every day, but […]

More Cutest Baby Ever Shirts

Checking over my referrer information in my site statistics, I found that a number of people were searching Google for “Cutest Baby Ever T-Shirt.” Happily, the top two results were from my blog here and from the Cutest Baby Ever shop at CafePress.  Unfortunately, the CafePress link went directly to the Mom of the Cutest […]

Happy 17 Months, Pooks!

You’re Mr. Independent now. You don’t want to eat anything unless you can feed it to yourself, and even then, you like playing with your food more than eating it most of the time. It’s very frustrating. You also like to scoop your food off of your high chair tray into the seat with you, […]

Guilty Mommy Pleasures: A Little Bit of Romance

With Valentine’s Day coming up next month, I got to thinking about romance. You remember romance, right?  It’s that thing you used to enjoy before you had kids.  (Maybe it’s why you have kids!) Time and energy are at a premium when you have little ones, so romance often disappears for long periods of time […]

Mealtime Tantrums: What the Fork?

Not to long ago, I wrote about how wonderful it was that my son was such a wonderful eater, how he wasn’t picky at all. How quickly things changed. TJ had recently decided that he didn’t want to eat most of the foods we tried to serve him for dinner.  As a matter of fact, […]

I know it seems silly to be thinking about Halloween costumes just after Christmas and New Year’s Day, but I came across this online shop in the midst of my work and didn’t want to forget about it before next Halloween! United Mask and Party has a number of costume for infant and toddler boys […]

Baby’s first ear infection

My family has just survived TJ’s first ear infection.  On one hand, we were lucky, as his first birthday came and went without having had one beforehand.  On the other hand, his first ear infection was in both ears, making for double the trouble. TJ loves sticking his fingers in his ears, nose, and mouth, […]
