stay cool during summer.jpg

Let’s chat about being pregnant in Florida–because I’ve done it twice. Down here, we only have a small respite from the hot weather during December, January, and a small bit of February. My daughter was born in late February, so luckily, I was enjoying cooler months during my last trimester. The first time? I wasn’t [&hellip

celebrity parenting

Have you ever met a parenting challenge and said to yourself, “Gee, I wish I could get some parenting advice from a celebrity?” I didn’t think so. Celebrities have been baring their souls in memoir form for decades — probably to add “author” to their list of achievements — and one of the favorite topics [&hellip

pregnant test.jpg

I remember the moment I found out I was pregnant with my son. My husband and I were preparing to take a trip to visit our parents “up north,” and although we were trying to get pregnant, I didn’t expect a positive test–I really just needed to know if I needed to bring “supplies” if [&hellip

There are three occasions for celebrities to really flaunt their wealth and status: weddings, baby showers, and their kids’ birthday parties, and the granddaddy of them all is the first-birthday bash. Celebrities spare no expense in throwing these decadent parties for little people who won’t likely remember a thing. From live farm animals to roses [&hellip

sleeping baby, sleep training

Blowout diapers, daycare expenses, washing bottles, carrying around a humongous diaper bag—none of these things is a positive aspect of parenthood, but the one thing that is worse than all of these combined is the lack of sleep.  Sleep is quite a “thing” at my house. My husband and I loved sleeping in and taking [&hellip

crazy celebrity baby showers

The baby shower for my son was a humble affair: grocery store cake, DIY decorations, a sandwich platter from Publix, and hosted in my living room. The entire thing was planned by my mother and sister, and we had a modest group, a fun game or two, and some lovely presents. But if I was [&hellip

Let’s be honest, here. Being pregnant during the summer is no walk in the park. During my pregnancies, I was extremely averse to hot weather (because I was already roasting inside!), so I wasn’t able to enjoy my normal summertime activities–trips to the beach, lounging in the pool, enjoying the outdoors. Besides, it’s sometimes difficult [&hellip

celebrity endorsed baby products.jpg

When I gave birth to my baby, nobody paid me a dime for her first picture, and my labor was just as boring and uneventful as any other that morning. (In fact, when I requested something to eat, they gave me a sad, cold hot dog and limp fries.) However, celeb parents have a different [&hellip
