Why It’s Okay to Break Holiday Traditions

The holidays are rapidly approaching and with the festivities come our favorite traditions.

However, sometimes traditions start to feel forced. We feel like …

The Dreaded C-Word: Co-Sleeping

Today we are going to tackle one of those topics that has so much shame and stress associated with it. No, we are not talking about breast feeding.

Knock Out the Flu

It’s that time of year. The days are shorter, the holidays are creeping closer and everyone wakes up with a scratchy throat. What do you call this time of year? FLU SEASON!

Why I Want to Share My #MeToo Story

I’m not going to lie. This post is difficult for me to write. However, yesterday I had a conversation with one of my girlfriends and now I feel like it is necessary for me to share.

Back to School: Preschool Pressure

It’s back to school season and I have felt more pressure around parenting over the last few months than I have since Zelda was born.

When I say the word “bully” you probably think of bullies on the playground or at school. Today, I am going to talk about a different kind of bully: the mean senior citizen.

The Tale of the First Time Out

I don’t even know where to start because I’m at a loss for words. I feel a little sick to my stomach and want to laugh at the same time, but isn’t that being a parent? Everything is always a big pile of mixed emotions. Since Zelda was born people have spoken to me about the terrible twos and in …

#StyleHasNoRules with Long Tall Sally

A new study was conducted that revealed 78% of adult women were more confident as children when it came to their fashion sense. Up until the age of 10 they wore what made them happy and didn’t conform to fashion rules or get hung up on body image issues.

How to Take a Weekend Away Without the Guilt

Last weekend I rolled two kids deep by myself and not surprisingly, I’m exhausted. While it was tiring, I had so much fun and it was a huge learning experience. So how did I end up with two kids in tow? About a month ago, my girlfriend texted me to ask if I’d be willing to watch her son for …
