Why the “big things” can wait

by Lisa  

Does it ever seem like you wake up in the morning and you’re suddenly off on a marathon race that lasts all day long? All week long? As a stay-at-home mom to a toddler and a preschooler, my days are filled with small, tedious tasks. It’s a constant cycle of make breakfast, pack lunch, clean [...]



What those other moms really think of you

by Lisa  

I have a friend who always seems concerned about what others think of her as a parent. She worries what people think of how her daughter is dressed, what she says, the lunch she sends with her to preschool, and so on. I only had a few moments of “what must they think?” in my [...]



Where’d the name beanie hat come from?

Where’d the name beanie hat come from?

by Lisa  

No one is sure where the name “beanie hat” came from, but there are several theories. Some think it’s from the slang term “bean” referring to the head. Others point out that the button that was commonly found on top of beanie hats a long time ago was about the size of a bean. Academics [...]



Do we really lose most of our body heat through our head?

Do we really lose most of our body heat through our head?

by Lisa  

My mother used to tell us to put a hat on to go outside to play in the winter because we lose most of our heat through our heads. It turns out that’s not entirely true. While a hat can definitely prevent the heat loss that occurs through the head, and therefore keep you warmer, [...]



The beanie hat’s surprisingly intriguing origins

by Lisa  

The basic beanie hat forms the heart of many of our most loved baby hat designs. So I started wondering the other day where the beanie hat itself came from. Here’s what I learned. It all started in Wales almost a thousand years ago First of all, the term beanie hat can refer to two [...]



Does your baby have an object he loves?

by Lisa  

My son is obsessed with toothbrushes. I’ve had to move my husband’s and mine out of the drawer in the bathroom where I’ve kept them for years, because he goes and gets them – and then brushes everything with them. He will take the tube of toothpaste and pretend to squeeze some out onto the [...]



Hard to say goodbye

Hard to say goodbye

by Lisa  

I just dropped off my complete cloth diaper stash to be sold on consignment at the local Just Between Friends sale. When you participate in these events, you place your items on the shop floor yourself. Last night, I had to tear myself away. My husband called to see if I was alright because I [...]



Is it poop or chocolate? A misunderstanding with my toddler

by Lisa  

My toddler entered the kitchen and stopped in his tracks when he saw me. He said loudly: “Poop!” Usually he tells me just after he has done a nasty in his diaper. But how can that be, I thought. I just changed you a minute ago. Then I looked at the chunk of chocolate cake [...]



What lengths do you go to protect your kids from germs?

by Lisa  

When I pick up my older son from preschool, I always bring his little brother with me. Sometimes I let the little one check out the toys and books in the play area. The other day, my toddler was carrying around a book and occasionally putting the corner to his mouth. I was only taking [...]



Does your baby look like you? Does it matter?

Does your baby look like you? Does it matter?

by Lisa  

A neighbor once told me very directly – almost accusingly – “You know, your son looks nothing like you.” It hurt a bit. I’m not really sure why. It’s a fact, after all, sort of like saying “his hair is brown”. I know we don’t look alike at all. I love that he looks like [...]
