Rainy Day Entertainment

The weather is starting to close in now as we have entered fall.  Living in Upstate New York we are treated to a rich, vibrant display of colors as the leaves finally give up the fight and prepare for winter.  This now means more rainy, cold days and certainly no swimming in the lakes anymore. […]

Everyone needs a sucker – product review

I absolutely LOVE bulb syringes.  Not just any bulb syringe, but the one you get from the hospital.  Thing 2 had a bit of a sniffle.  When I say “a bit”  its like saying the Sahara desert has “a bit” of sand or Mel Gibson has “a bit” of an anger management issue.  Poor thing […]

Getting over the fear of nail trimming

This is one subject that you never really see instructions for in the books.  Thing 2 came out with quite a set of claws on her.  There is this conundrum of “what do I do with them?” File them? Clip them? Belt Sander?  The hands and fingernails are so tiny it is very scary to […]

Thing 2′s First night in her own room

Well all our visitors left so Thing 2′s room is now free.  We have a sofa bed in her nursery so people can stay with us still.  We try to get our girls into their rooms as quickly as we can.  It sounds selfish but we have noticed that both us and the baby sleep […]

Art Keep – App Review

Every day Thing 1 comes home from daycare we have some art work given to us.  She gets so excited and beams with pride and then she points at the refrigerator where we have to display it for the rest of the day.  Usually it looks like Pablo Picasso’s version of a snowman with all […]

Keep a Diary – App review

I started doing this with Thing 1.  It can be fun to look back and remember those early days.  The reason I started is because Thing 1 got a bad rash on my 2nd day at home.  We found out it was a bad reaction to a spicy curry I had the day before.  I […]

Pump it up – Product Review

Right I am now at the point where I need help with the feeding as 3 weeks of interrupted sleep is making me go a bit ga-ga.  I am a little wobbly and sensitive so I figure I need to start expressing milk.  That way someone else can help with the feeds.  This also gives […]
