For two solid years, Sesame Street was the only show we let Mazzy watch. She loved it because it was all she knew. To this day, Mazzy's favorite grown-up songs are all because she remembers them from duets with Elmo. I'm Yours, One Two Three Four, Don't Know Why... whenever... Continue reading

Giveaway: Evenflo ProComfort Symphony DLX car seat Well, it's been fun, summer house. Yesterday, we packed up our sandals and our sunscreen and our carnival fish and drove back to our apartment in Manhattan. Mike at the wheel and me in the passenger seat once again. I was just getting... Continue reading

I have a confession to make. I've never seen a woman giving birth. Yes, I have given birth to two children, but when the doctor asked if I wanted to use a mirror, I said "HELL NO!" They didn't show a video in my childbirth class and they never showed... Continue reading

We've got three more days before we pack up the summer house and head back to the city. I have no idea how we will fit back into our New York City apartment after living with two floors and a yard, but we will suck in our stomachs, overstuff our... Continue reading

Testing comment section.
I just went back and checked- that one is yours- Barbara M!
There were a lot of people who used a similar line to the top one. But don't worry, if it's not your scent- I didn't always use the scent that people picked so each scent was represented evenly.

It was really tough to read through all your Method Air Refresher headlines to select my 40 favorites so far. Tough because so many of them were really funny and tough because so many of them made me want to vomit. Speaking of vomit, when it comes to household smells,... Continue reading

Yes, that's fine!

I came *this close* to screaming "SHIT!" when my family poured a bucket of ice water on me, so I am in no place to judge the two-year-old below who screams much worse. I get it, two-year-old, I get it. It's cold! I guess if you have a baby who... Continue reading

Ian Padgham captured two frames per month to make this awesome Vine of his wife's entire pregnancy in 6.5 seconds. It's like a totally realistic portrayal of the quick and painless life experience that is childbirth! Just kidding. Continue reading

Mazzy likes to eat bananas whole, with it peeled about halfway down before it is handed to her. Then, once she has eaten to the peeled place, she says she is finished. I tell her to peel the rest. I even offer to peel it for her. But nope, she... Continue reading

Thanks to a partnership with Allstate, I am flying lifestyle photographer Raquel Bianca across the US to document the morning routines of twelve mothers in five different cities. This...

Thank you for your comment. I added the general donation link for ALS on the post (my bad) and made my donation to your father-in-law's team. I wish him well and hope you reach your goal!
Image
It took getting challenged three times for me to do it, but here it is. I will be donating to ALS anyway for four reasons. 1) It's a good cause. 2) I forgot to specifically say that it was the ALS "ice bucket" challenge and I forgot to tell the... Continue reading

Remember the family who did the Xmas Jammies video last Christmas? The Holderness family is back with a back-to-school parody of Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" called "Baby Got Class," which makes me wonder why I can't even get my family to help me make an Ice Bucket Challenge video....

Today I'd like to introduce you to my Aunt Debi, who is not actually my Aunt Debi, but she said I should call her that anyway. I discovered Aunt Debi because she comments on my Instagram pics with the frequency of a stalker. I clicked over to her instagram account... Continue reading

I'm about to talk about smells. Not the good kind (we'll get to that later). The kind that makes you break out the air freshener spray even though you hate the way the air freshener spray smells. You're just hoping the metallic odor of the air freshener will disguise the... Continue reading

This week has been a pretty weird week. I was on the news twice. On Good Morning America for #likeaboy and on the Weather Channel this AM talking about this crazy photo I took of Mazzy and Harlow during a lightning storm. I should give my imaginary PR person a... Continue reading

Yesterday, Good Morning America featured the #likeagirl and the #likeaboy posts I wrote a few weeks back, inspired by the Always ad. It was a momumentous moment where I appeared on network television to discuss a very inspiring movement and I totally forgot about it because I was too busy... Continue reading

GIVEAWAY: Evenflo ProComfort Symphony DLX Car Seat Two weeks ago, when I talked about how I spend all my time at the house shuttling my kids around in the car, someone said I was doing too much. I should just open the door and toss them outside. Point taken. The... Continue reading

Giveaway: 3 Backpacks full of back-to-school supplies from Boogie Wipes This September, Mazzy is going to her first year of kindergarten. Also, her last year of kindergarten. Unless she fails cutting and pasting, which (judging by the mess she leaves at home) is VERY POSSIBLE. Prior to kindergarten, Mazzy’s back-to-school... Continue reading

The first weekend we stayed out at the house, I went to Stop and Shop after I put the kids to bed at about 9pm. I thought it was magical. I strolled leisurely through the empty aisles of bread and yogurt, making sure to walk up and down each and... Continue reading
