When Things Don’t Go According to Plan by Eric Guerin

“Something is wrong…we need to go to the hospital now”…that was my wife’s anxious phone call to me at 1:49 PM. At 2:18 PM my son was born by emergency c-section but those 29 minutes in the middle are the story here. I was just a couple of minutes from home when she called and I rushed in where my wife who was 37 weeks pregnant was crying, on the phone with the hospital and in a panic.

How young is too young to start babysitting? By Allison Katz

So I just ran into one of those awkward neighborhood moments. Two young girls from our neighborhood came over and asked if they could babysit my 19 month old son. One is 12 and the other is 11. I immediately thought Yikes, Oh my goodness, that’s way too young.

As a Parent, Sometimes You Just Have To Lie, But When?

I got a sweet Mother’s Day card this year from my 3-year-old son. Inside, his teachers recorded his answers to a few questions they asked about me.

According to him, my favorite color is pink (I can see that), my hair is black (so I’m thinking it’s time for some highlights), and what do I do while he is at school? I “make the Easter Bunny eggs.” Uhhh… I thought I was being sneaky about that.

Photo Contest: Celebrating Imperfect Parenting

There’s a lot of pressure out there to be a perfect parent. To have the perfect sleeper, eater, and play-er all while pushing the perfect stroller. In reality, we’re all just doing what we can every day. Of course we want to do our best for our kids but we’re humans, not machines. In the world of baby caring where sleep is limited and tempers (both the toddler in your home and yours) run high, who needs the stress of trying to be a Perfect Mom?

Mommies Unite…Or Stab Each Other in the Back

As a whole, I think moms generally tend to stick together, help each other out, give comfort, advice, and form long lasting bonds and friendships with fellow moms. This said, I have been present in situations where moms don’t always have each other’s back and end up making others feel awful.

I’ve spent the money on fresh, delicious, organic food only to have my 2 year old if he could flip the bird to it…It angers me so when he refuses to eat but I have found that if it sits there long enough he will eventually eat it as long as it is HE deciding if and when he should eat.
