Last weekend, my best friend from home visited, and I think we talked for four days straight. We haven’t spent this much quality time together since high school, and it was more fun than I could have imagined.
Now, it’s back to reality, and for the first time in a long time, we don’t have plans this weekend. We may head down to Monterey Bay Aquarium because, I’m embarrassed to say, after living here for over ten years, and we’ve never been!
GLOW Is Back!
Have you watched GLOW on Netflix? I didn’t think I would enjoy a show set in the ’80s about the making of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, but it is so good! Interesting storylines, likable and complex characters, fun costumes, and great ’80s music. Definitely worth a watch.
In case you missed it, here are the week’s posts from San Francisco Moms Blog and Mid-Peninsula Moms Blog.
Meredith enjoyed a one week staycation with her husband while her in-laws looked after the kids! See how she coordinated this genius arrangement, why it’s a must do, if you can, and what changes she’s making now that the kids are home.
We asked a pediatrician to fill us in on ticks and Lyme Disease. Here’s how to avoid getting bit, what to do if you do find a tick, and when you should and should not worry.
Kelly, our resident baker, raves about this creative book full of easy ways to make impressive cupcakes. It’s full of step-by-step pictures, easy enough for non-readers to follow!
Three of our writers tried out Britax’s new Essentials line of car seats and shared their thoughts. Personally, I love that the seats are a lower price point than their other lines making safe car seats more affordable!
I am tired just reading Alessandra’s account of what it takes to breastfeed and pump for her twin infants. Peek into life with twins or comment with an encouraging word if you, too, are a mom of multiples!
Lighten your load when traveling with your school-aged kids. Pack inflatable booster seats, rather than lugging bulky plastic ones. Meredith tells us all about BubbleBum’s inflatable boosters.
