5 Things You WISH You Could Put On The Registry

Oh, baby showers. Or sprinkles, for those that have that “bonus” baby because they are either forgetful with birth control, just plain crazy, didn’t know they could get pregnant naturally, or *really* don’t want to go back to work. (Kidding! We know that baby was part of your long-term plan to never get old! It’s working!)

So, the little muslin blankets are so sweet and of course we all could really use the obligatory white onesies, crib sheets, bouncy seats, strollers, and breast pads.

But here’s the girlfriend’s guide to what you really, really need. Where to find it is a different story.

1. Spare parts. If evolution was a real thing, women of child-bearing age would grow an extra arm on her dominant side. That way she could mix the bottle, turn off the faucet, and feed the screaming baby at the same time. Or maybe, like the way your hair gets all gorgeous and shiny and your blood volume doubles, the spare arm could just grow in during your first trimester. Then when the baby is potty-trained, the spare arm just falls off – a visible sign for all the mommies at the gym and the playground that you’ve crossed a big, big item off that parenting to-do list.

2. SisterMoms.

5 Quick Homework Tips

I have one child in high school, one in middle school, and one in grade school.  We have had our share of homework ups and downs.  How we can help our children with their homework needs while taking into account their age, temperament and learning style?  Here are some tips that may be helpful for your family: 1. Get ready.  Your children have had had a full day by the time most of us can get to homework.  They need you to be patient and positive.  Try your best to refresh yourself before you start homework.  I know this can be difficult between finishing up your own work, driving to activities and figuring out a dinner plan.  When I am not pulled in multiple directions, I find it easier to be present in a constructive way.  … [Read More...]
