I love sparkling drinks...sparkling water, homemade sodas, anything with bubbles just makes me happy. Since traditional soda isn't so great for you, I'm always looking for ways to make my own version at home with real fruit and juices. An... Continue reading

One of the things I missed most during my past pregnancies wasn't alcohol, but sushi and other forms of raw fish. It's one of my favorite things to eat. I know raw fish isn't for everyone, but if you're into... Continue reading

Hi Christine, Such a good point! When I was 12, I wanted to shave my legs and my mom wouldn’t let me. But then i just went and did it anyway when she wasn’t looking ;/ Joy

Ok, so I'll start this post by saying that I was never into princesses as a kid. I barely had any dolls. My dad got me a fake Barbie from Chinatown one time, and I played with it once. I... Continue reading

I have a love/hate relationship with being so connected all the time. In some ways, I use the excuse that it’s part of my job to know what’s happening. But I also find that I can’t fully decompress from work... Continue reading

Hi Michelle, Heather responded to your comment: Hi Michelle, Do you have white noise in the room? Id suggest a rain/wave/nature sound or a fan on low if possible. 4am is a common time for light sleep and more movement (for kids and adults too), so its not surprising to hear that one is waking the other at that time. Choices would be to walk the 2-year old back, as you said, and it may wake the baby for a bit but both will eventually get used to it; or you could put a little mattress on the ground in your room for your 2-year old if she doesnt disturb your sleep (or her own) too much with coming into your room. Its really a choice based on what works for you and your goals for sleep. You can always find us atthehappysleeper.comif you need more help. Good luck! - Heather Hope that helps! Joy

There's no kid (big or little) who doesn't love sidewalk chalk. We made these mini neon chalk gems which are great for little hands and SO fun to play with. They'd also make for super fun party favors for parties!... Continue reading
