How to Win at Lunch Time

Let’s talk about feeding our kids because it is challenging work. I remember when I found out I was pregnant I thought to myself, “OMG. I don’t know how to cook that well. How will I ever feed my child?”. However, like with everything else parenting related, I figured it out. Feeding Zelda can be a bit of pain point …

Why Three Day Potty Training is Total Sh*t

I’m approximately three months into potty training and the adventure continues to be very real. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, no one really told me the truth about potty training (or parenting in general for that matter!).

ZELCHELLA: Zelda’s Epic Birthday Party at the Swissôtel

Your friends will all have an opinion about what you need and it’s important to know that every parenting style is different. Just because something was the golden ticket for your best friend, doesn’t mean it will be for you. When I was preparing …

Sh*t Nobody Tells You About Potty Training

Three Things I Learned in the First Month of Potty Training: 1. Whether it be a nanny, a babysitter or your husband, make sure that everyone who cares for your child is involved in the process and understands your goals.

Codeverse’s Summer Coding Camp

It’s insane how quickly everything is changing around us. In my youth, when someone inquired about a future career choice I typically heard others respond that they wanted to be a veterinarian, doctor or maybe even a firefighter.
