Who is this kid?

by Karen on May 3, 2013

Seriously, where did my tiny baby go? Am I being punked?

How to throw a toddler birthday party for cheap

by Karen on December 12, 2012

I grew up with three sisters, and I was third born, so birthday parties weren’t a yearly deal for us. We each had a party or two to celebrate big milestones, but my mom didn’t throw a huge party for each of us every year — and I don’t blame her. I probably won’t either. […]

Losing

by Karen on July 17, 2012

I know I’m not the first person to say this — and certainly not the last — but living with a toddler feels like a losing battle. Every day, every hour, sometimes every minute there’s a new battle to wage, a new argument, usually an argument that we just had 20 minutes ago. I know […]

A few seemingly unrelated ideas

by Karen on February 16, 2012

I’ve been feeling slightly uninspired lately. I’m working on coming up with some fabulous new content for you guys, but in the meantime, it’s Thursday, and I want to share a few random things that are on my mind. I found out last week that I was quoted and my blog was mentioned in the […]

This new stage of development does not agree with me. I much preferred the days when Judah would sit still, snuggled safely in my arms out of harm’s way. It’s not that I wanted to keep him that way forever. I’m really looking forward to the fun stuff that comes along with having an older […]

Judah and the oatmeal

by Karen on May 19, 2011

We started introducing Judah to some solid foods this week, which has been exciting for everyone. His first food — mashed bananas — was a big hit. The oatmeal we tried today? Not so much.

One year ago today

by Karen on April 2, 2011

Since Judah was born, time has been on warp speed. But man, this moment still feels like a million years ago. It’s true that a lot has happened since the day I found out I was pregnant — we moved three times, Tony has started two different jobs, we traveled to Europe. But more importantly, […]

Counting my blessings through bleary eyes

by Karen on March 30, 2011

I mentioned last week that we’ve begun working with Judah on his sleep schedule. Now that he’s four months old, I think he’s ready for a routine. Because he’s still so young, I want to be gentle in its implementation. Unfortunately, gentle for the baby is still pretty brutal for his parents. He’s responding incredibly […]

How much do disposable diapers and formula cost?

by Karen on December 20, 2010

Oh, hey. It’s a post about money! This weekend, Judah turned three weeks old. For the first two weeks of life with a newborn, I tried to keep things as simple as possible. I was still recovering from the birth and getting used to taking care of a baby, so I was okay with using […]
