Making Time For Me Time with a Prenatal Massage

Making Time For Me Time with a Prenatal Massage

I often joke that I’m a full time mom of 1.75 children. Being 33 weeks pregnant, with an active 2 year old in tow, let’s just say it’s not always a walk in the park. Plus, let’s face it: at 37 years old, I’m no Spring Chicken.

I Spy A Place Where Kids' Style Is About More Than Looks

Everyone asks me where I buy my son’s clothes. I take it as a compliment and, to be honest, I sort of feel like it’s earned. I agonize over what he wears…sometimes even just to come down into the kitchen. It’s not that I’m so superficial or that I attach his (my) self-esteem to his appearance—I just feel like he’s such a sweet and lovely little creature, he deserves to look his best.
