Warehouse Roulette – Bundles of Joy
March 15, 2012 5:30 am | by
BLOG_warehouseROULETTE

I’ve been bugged by Jenn and others to write posts on the blog for a long time, but I didn’t want to have to figure out what to write about while staying somewhat on topic. So the obvious solution was to write about random things in the warehouse. Warehouse roulette! To make it fun and very random, I put all of the warehouse locations in a box, mixed it up and drew a location. I know I said it before, but I really should start playing the lottery (even if it is a tax on those that can’t do math,

Last night, during our weekly Twitter chat, someone asked, “What is one thing you would tell a mama who wants to try cloth diapers?” My immediate response to a question like this is always, “Just try it!” When I first researched cloth diapers, I was completely overwhelmed at all the styles, options and the extra laundry steps. What I realized, once I gave it a whirl, was that it was that the laundry wasn’t too difficult (really only an extra wash cycle) and that the diapers aren’t as complex as I imagined. That’s probably why I just love the idea

It is a gorgeous, sunny day here in St. Louis, which is a great reminder that spring is on its way. That means, after the long dreary days of winter, it’s finally time to get those diapers out for some sun! If you’ve never tried sunning your cloth diapers, now is a great time to start. Sunning your diapers can help to remove stains, brighten and even sanitize your diapers. You don’t have to have a clothesline to do this. You can use a drying rack outside, lay them on your patio furniture or even along the edge of your

 
Swaddle ‘Em Up and Throw ‘Em Down.

I’m just kidding there, I would never throw my baby. But I do still swaddle her at 10 months. My first baby was swaddled until she was a year old and I’d like to believe it’s because my womb is so comfortable they can’t bear the wide open world around them as they sleep. There’s always talk about SCHEDULES! as it relates to naps and bedtime and oh believe me, I have a schedule. But nothing solidifies the “SHOOSH AND GO TO SLEEP NOW” message like swaddling to my babies. With my first, Addie, there weren’t really any fancy swaddling

Dealing with sleep deprivation

BLOG_realmomtalk

How do you start a blog post about sleep deprivation, when you’re a little sleep deprived? Much like you start or don’t ever finish anything: poorly and slowly! Are you reading this at 3am while someone very small is a) eating b) crying or c) pooping? Or is it nice and sunny outside but you’re a little disgruntled because you did not really get as much sleep as you’d wanted out of the nighttime hours? I know how you feel! As a new mom, sleep deprivation is unavoidable. It’s probably one of the first pieces of advice you received when

 
Tuesday Giveaway: It’s my Momiversary!

Today is my Momiversary. What’s that, you ask? Well, put simply, today is my oldest child’s birthday, therefore the day I became a mom. I know technically that you become a mom before birth, but I don’t know the exact day I conceived and I’m not a fan of math, so I make it easy on myself and call today my Momiversary. The truth is, even while pregnant, most of my life was the same. The really big changes came the moment he exited my body and entered the world. Nothing has been the same since. There’s just something special

 
Newborn Cloth Diapering

Prepping Your New Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapering a newborn can seem intimidating, especially if it’s your first child that you’ll be diapering. But then again, everything about newborns can seem a little intimidating, right? It’s because it’s new, not because it’s hard. Now that I have the diapering of three kids (and the potty training of two of them, more or less) under my belt, I’m going to go ahead and say it: diapering newborns is the easiest part. Newborns don’t move around that much. Not that they can’t wriggle and squirm but at least they can’t get up and run away laughing in the

Warehouse Roulette – A Tree! A Tree? A Tree…

  I’ve been bugged by Jenn and others to write posts on the blog for a long time, but I didn’t want to have to figure out what to write about while staying somewhat on topic. So the obvious solution was to write about random things in the warehouse. Warehouse roulette! To make it fun and very random, I put all of the warehouse locations in a box, mixed it up and drew a location.     So yes, this week I drew a tree. I was so close to drawing an empty shelf, but instead, I ended up with
