    Doink – Piggy Matching Game from Goliath

    I often took things too literally as a child so you can only imagine my terror when I first heard the expression, “When pigs fly…” As if I wasn’t already scared enough of being a toilet target for birds, the idea of 500+ pound creatures soaring above seemed pretty horrifying, but that was before I played this game!   Pigs DO fly in Doink, the exciting game that will put you in a grab-happy frenzy! Try to grab the colored pig that best matches your hand of cards; the first player to get rid of all of their cards wins. Think fast and swipe swiftly, but just watch out for…

    Luli Bebe Sophisticated Yet Practical Diaper Bags

    There’s a great line that says: “If you want to get something done, ask a mom.” That ethos is the perfect description for one mom who gets things done: Arpi Khachatryan.

    The Working Mom Blueprint: Winning @ Parenting w/o Losing Yourself

    As a pediatrician, entrepreneur and mother, Whitney Casares, MD, MPH, FAAP has a unique vantage point as to what mothers need to do to make sure they’re OK and so their kids are OK. Because now more than ever, moms are conflicted about where to draw the line between their own self-care and what’s best for their kids, leading to feelings of stress, being pulled in too many directions at once and burnout (none of which is good for families). In The Working Mom Blueprint: Winning at Parenting without Losing Yourself (American Academy of Pediatrics; May 11, 2021), Dr. Casares offers a practical plan that covers: ·       setting priorities ·       cultivating self-care ·       finding childcare ·       establishing an equal parenting partnership ·       delegating whenever appropriate…

If you have no idea what the mother-to-be needs, let me give you a important Baby Lesson first. It’s super common for babies to have their days and nights mixed up.
