This has been on my mind for a while... and it is not meant to sound negative, but no matter how I try to write it, it does a little bit. Why, oh why in the year 2017 do I still feel like I am defending my family when I go out in public with my children? Why … Continue reading Next time you see that young mom lugging her kids around, make her smile by saying this…
I love when the simple innocence of toddlerhood mixes with the bold literalness and that two year olds have! Especially when words are spoken so confidently even though they are not quite right. We had one of those moments today. This morning was hectic. Our little man has his first cold and is really congested … Continue reading Orange Juice
Have you ever had a conversation with your kids and realized afterward that neither one of you had any idea what you just talked about for the past 5 minutes? The other day at lunch Aadie asked for "red beggies".... cautiously I probed for more information... tomatoes? peppers? does she really mean that she wants an apple? No, … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… “Red Beggies”
As a speech language pathologist (SLP) I can appreciate each stage of speech and language development that my daughter has gone through and continues to go through. I taught her a few baby signs, and she was speaking some real words (Real= understood by unfamiliar listeners with a true meaning attached) around 7 months old.

We love to eat dinner together as a family. I feel that it is a great time to connect and enjoy each others company. We are finding that it is also a great time of day to hear about what is going on in the pretty little head of our toddler. She is Sassy with … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings (on Tuesday, because I forgot to publish it)
A month or so ago I started this blog thinking that no one would ever find it, let alone read it or follow it. I was spending far too much time binge watching Project Runway on Hulu while my son fell asleep nursing. Since he's only 3 months old I spend a lot of time snuggled up with him … Continue reading I have a confession…
One of my Mother's Day requests was for some baby free time to spend with my Bubsie girl. Hubs was happy to take our little guy for a drive so he could nap after our trip to the cafe, so we got to baking! I'm not really the kind of baker who likes to stick … Continue reading Bexer & Bubsie’s Banana, Blueberry-Lemon Swirl Muffins! (Egg, dairy & cinnamon free)
You know that old saying... I opened my mouth and my mother came out.? Well this week I experienced a twist on it. My toddler opened her mouth and I came out! It happened when we went to pick up our little dog, Remy, at the groomer (remember the poop story from last week??). Rems does … Continue reading My daughter, the super absorbent tropical bird…
