The Sleep Battle

The running joke in our house is if Tavish wants siblings, he better start sleeping by himself. Family planning aside, it’s a coin toss whether or not I’ll even sleep beside my husband.

Christmas Shopping: The Stroller Obstacle Course

Christmas shopping. We all dread it in some sense; the crowds, the lines, the scrambling. It’s bad enough when we’re on our own (or god forbid, pregnant) but with a baby in a stroller, it can be nightmare. It doesn’t matter where you go, what time of year it is or how wicked your baby… Continue reading Christmas Shopping: The Stroller Obstacle Course
