There is something so cute about baby boys wearing bow ties. Since I have two little boys, I can’t pretty them up with hair bows and girlie accessories, but that doesn’t mean all bows are out of the question! So, when it came time to decide what my little guys would wear for my sister’s wedding, bow ties seemed to be the natural choice. Prior to the event I hadn’t ever tried to put either one in a bow tie, so maybe I should have practiced, at least with my younger one, but oh well… The theme was neon, so...

Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, May 10, so if you’re still trying to figure out what to get Mom, I put together some great ideas for Mother’s Day gifts for my “day job.” It really is the thought that counts, and I would love nothing more than to give mine a gift that truly makes her smile. So, after searching high and low, here are some of the ideas I came up with for every mother that may be on your list! Feel free to pass this on to anyone who needs “help!” Here’s the television segment I...

Have you ever considered getting headphones for your toddler? You might not regard it as a “must have” for your tyke, but they have all kinds of uses and can actually come in pretty handy. My kids are pretty lucky, they get to go to sporting events and shows, ride on airplanes and use handheld devices aka tablets. The one thing all of those activities have in common is that the experiences can be “enhanced with “headphones.” I’ve noticed my boys’ sensitivity to the sometimes loud speakers at events...

I recently hosted a “Baby Gear Product Roundup” on my show the other day, with a look at some of the newest and coolest gear designed with baby in mind. When it comes to baby stuff, there is SO MUCH out there, and I had to squeeze in some of my favs in the few minutes we had…so watch to see some of the “must have” items, from cute to innovative, and the downright necessary! Here’s the rundown with links of the featured items: Beyond Junior Y http://www.abiie.com/ Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Bouncer and Backpack us.diono.com/littletikes Soap...

I’ve been working hard on gift guides for television segments at work and I came across Discovery Toys which I love! First off, the company is based in Nor Cal aka the Bay (my hometown)…but what I truly appreciate about these “toys” is that they all have educational value. I mean when kids play they are learning, but it’s makes these toys extra attractive because while they play they are tapping into many senses…creating…and being educated!! Childhood development professionals recommend these toys…just...

Okay, so the title of this post may be a little misleading, but where my toddler is concerned…he got a “puppy!” His puppy is actually a Skip Hop Zoo rolling luggage… We recently set off on a family adventure to Chicago to visit family and when planning the trip and thinking on how best to orchestrate packing everything we needed for the trip, I decided my 2 year old could “hold his own.” I have an very independent little guy who want to be so helpful, it’s to the point he will have a meltdown...

The boys and I recently made a trip to Build-A Bear…and while I think they may still be on the young side for the “experience,” it was still a worthwhile and fun outing. If you’re not familiar, you’ve probably walked by one of these stores at the mall, it’s a chain store, so they have them everywhere… and the process to “build a bear,” is actually pretty cool!! 😉   First you pick out a bear (or other “animal” ready for stuffing), and then you can fill it with scents,...

A bib is a bib is a bib right!?!? WRONG! Sure, we use them on our little ones to catch all the excess drool or to attempt and make feeding time a little less messy…but somehow, sometimes, whatever we were trying to avoid is unavoidable! Well, I came across a very cool take on the traditional bib. It’s trendy, functional, unique, reversible and handmade. Did I mention this bib is also eco-friendly and easy to wash!?!?! It’s called Maddy Wear and I came across it after a good friend of mine raved about how GREAT it is!! ...

Washable and waterproof are the two keywords that caught my attention when checking out “The pediped Footwear System.” Up until now, my main concerns when finding footwear for my son has been color, style and fit. So, now that I’ve had the chance to put a pair of pediped’s to the test, I’m realizing there’s so much more to consider when (out)fitting your baby’s feet! I mentioned earlier that “washable” caught my attention when it came to this brand of shoes…I mean once you hit...

My youngest son and I recently played the “starring” roles in a video created for a crowd funding campaign. The project seeking funding is a vehicle child safety seat called “ANEIROS.” All too often we hear about (preventable) tragedies where a child is mistakenly left behind in a hot car, and ends up losing their life as a result of vehicular heat stroke… Well, the ANIEROS is designed to save those children. It effectively integrates with a vehicles alarm and electrical wiring, giving it the capability to...
