• What's in Our Diaper Bag

    I’ll start out by saying we love our physical diaper bag (here’s a similar one). We initially got it because Myke wanted a neutral looking one so it wouldn’t look too weird with him carrying it. I didn’t mind what the diaper bag looked like, as long as it had all the components I needed. Currently, Olivia doesn’t require much when we go out, but Meghan still needs a few extra things. So what do…

    Has anyone else noticed that Christmas is exactly ONE WEEK AWAY? How insane is that? I feel like it creeps up quicker every year.

As I’m getting all this amazing advice from other moms, I thought it would be helpful if I compiled some of the items that worked for me. Breakfast: The most important meal of the day. I have always told Myke, if Olivia has a…
