Counterfeit Baby Products At Amazon

And you don't even get to choose whether you get a real or a fake.

Never send this text.

Ever.

I hate this day. And I love this day.

June Cleaver vs. the Working Mom

It’s Mother’s Day. And for some reason, I still have visions of the ideal mom looking like doing my job as the CEO of a mid-sized company while also meeting the standard of the 1950s version of the June Cleaver mom. I hate this day. I love this day. The working mom life means that […]

How To Safely Diaper a Baby

There is a right way to diaper a baby.

How To Safely Diaper A Baby

To safely diaper a baby, Place the diaper under the baby’s bottom.  Pull the diaper through the baby’s legs and fasten the closures.
