Involving Gaby in my pregnancy…

Gaby has had me (basically) all to herself, since the moment she was born – and I know that with the new baby arriving, for the first time in her life, she is going to have to ‘share’ me…  And I want to make sure that I can make the transition as easy as possible…

Econobum Video Cloth Diaper Review

I first saw the Econobum at ABC Kids Expo in September.  I already knew about it from stumbling across the iParenting award it won before its release.  I blogged about it back in August, and many of you heard about it here first!  I knew it would be a diaper I had to try, and…

Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree…

As many parents of toddlers know, the predicament is WHERE to put the tree. With 3, it is even more of a challenge b/c you can forget a superyard gate. They’ll tear it down. Leaving it wide open is also not an option. 3 sets of little hands equals T.R.O.U.B.L.E. At the same time, you…

The Christmas countdown is on!

There are only 6 days now (in NZ anyway), until Christmas Day!  It seems to have snuck up on me this year, I guess because I’ve had so much else going on – and particularly in the past few months… it seems like it was only Gaby’s birthday a few weeks ago – yet, we…
