Happy Day-After-Mother’s Day! Did you have a good one? Mine was just swell. I feel like today is the perfect day for a giveaway of one of my favorite mama/kiddo brands, Tea Collection. I’ve written about them before, and the love is still strong, folks. Tea’s motto is “globally-inspired children’s clothes for little citizens of [...]
Wita has a pretty fab wardrobe, and I say that without being all look-at-me-and-my-awesome-taste because, well, the majority of her closet is filled with hand-me-downs. Yep, adorable hand-me-downs are responsible for about 60% of what Wita wears on a daily basis. In fact, Wita’s wearing at least one hand-me-down in each of the above photos. [...]
Hey! Let’s just make this a toddler lip sync blog or something! I feel compelled to update you on Wita’s journey to becoming The World’s Premier Lip Syncer. She’s been working hard – adding some intensity to her routines, and taking her show on the road. For instance, Monday morning at a fabric warehouse in [...]
We’re spending our last day lounging in Palm Springs, but popping in to wish you a smooth post-holiday weekend reentry. I loved seeing everyone all gussied up on Instagram yesterday. Since our families live halfway across the country, we are creating our own holiday traditions, and spending Easter in Palm Springs has become a given. [...]
Wita is a lip syncing fool these days. In the car or on the couch, grasping her Disney microphone or just a wooden spoon or thumb, the girl gets after it. Unfortunately, no one ever sees it because I can’t catch her in the act on film. So elusive, that one. (Aha! Until now! Kind [...]
You guys, you need to head over to Cary Anne Photography’s website to check out the photos of my cousin and her new baby. They will take your breath away, I promise. (Are they not the cutest family ever? Love love love.) Also, can we talk about the fact that I have never had professional [...]
Behind these doors lives the greatest laundry solution ever. Hanging laundry baskets, my friends.
The apple does not fall far from the tree, as Wito has developed quite an interest in two things, planning and writing. He journals all the livelong day – furiously scribbling while biting the whole of his bottom lip. In fact, when we have a disagreement, it’s not uncommon for him to run to his [...]
One of the best parts of blogging for the past eight (OMG EIGHT) years is accessing my archives for a little walk down memory lane. And truly, thank god for my archives because my memory ain’t so great, y’all. Truth, I’ve forgotten actual chapters of my life from my college days and my twenties…can’t remember [...]
The past three months have been a bit unusual. Buying and renovating a house is obviously stressful. Joyful and exciting, but stressful. Until we moved last week, D had been leaving around 6am to meet with contractors at the new house, followed by a full day at work, followed by stopping by the house again [...]
I recently found Wito’s school photo retakes in his backpack. Sparkling eyes, a huge toothless grin…it’s very difficult to look at them right now. I think of the Sandy Hook victims’ school photos…how many of those sweet children were missing some of their baby teeth too? Did they smile shyly or with boisterous accord? I [...]
Ho ho ho, cute and cozy baby lovers! Yesterday, Gilt.com exclusively launched Baby Gap’s Snowflake Collection. You can purchase the collection on Gilt.com before it’s available anywhere else, but you better hurry because it’s going fast. Click here to check out the adorable goods.
The newest episode of Mama Said is hard-hitting, you all. Hard-hitting, premiere filmmaking up in this joint. Grab your toilet paper.
My kids got a huge gold star yesterday. I recently wrote about Wita’s usurping of the car stereo, which has been an interesting time for me. As the daughter of a musician, listening to sugary sweet, over-produced tracks is like a huge middle finger to what I was raised to appreciate. My dad has played [...]
Happy Halloween from Super Mario and Princess Peach! (These photos were taken at Camp Spooky a few weeks ago at Knotts Berry Farm, which was a blast. Considering I hadn’t been to Knott’s in over 25 years, I was really, really surprised at how much fun we had. So much so that this gal might [...]
