I was attending a workshop last month and someone casually said “STFU” in conversation, which I found simultaneously pleasing and jarring. While I am by no means proud of this fact, the truth is that I am a bit of a potty mouth, so when someone swears around me, I sort of feel like I [...]

These paint swatches have been up on our walls for over a year and a half, since before I got pregnant with our now 3-month-old son. Now that he is sleeping through the night, I decided it was time to at least get started. So maybe this transformation will motivate some of you out there [...]

Are you running out of ideas about how to entertain your toddler, especially late on a Friday afternoon?
