Ms. Pickle, Piano Teacher


I’m going to take a moment to stray from food talk. Now before you gasp and say, “But it’s Thanksgiving month. ALL talk should be food talk!” I’m going to go ahead and say that, in my years of writing for Baby Bullet, I’ve looked at it as sort of an all over health and […]

What I Wish They Taught in Schools

Little Asian girl having science class, focus on face

My 7-year-old barges into conversations. No matter how many times I ask her to wait, to listen, or to be patient, she basically doesn’t comprehend that information and still does it anyway. She also has trouble meeting people’s eyes. Often times this can be interpreted as rudeness or disrespect. And these are just one of […]

Making Seasonal Decor Out of School Art

If you have a toddler like I do, you probably have a lot of artwork coming home from preschool or kindergarten. Initially, I started taking our favorites and hanging them with clothespins on a rope in our boys’ room, but once we ran out of space, I was still left with a giant stack of […]

This year, I didn’t want to spend a lot on a halloween costume and wasn’t going to have a ton of time to work on one, so I repurposed some awesome household items into the perfect costume! After much deliberation, my son finally decided on being a wizard (after changing his mind countless times). I racked my […]

Music in the Household

My husband has many talents; aside from being great with our kids, he has been many things: a musician, an installation artist, a computer programmer, an entrepreneur, a yoga teacher (in training), a life coach, and more. His original and greatest passion is music. He was a musician when we met and spent his time […]

The Horse on the Ledge

Now that school has started up and the fall season is upon us, I’m starting to get my annual panicky feeling. Despite the fact that fall is my favorite season, this feeling arrives at the same time every year. Maybe it’s all the change I see in the world around me as the leaves turn colors […]

DIY Hummingbird Food

Want to enjoy hummingbirds without the garden? It’s easier than you think! Make your own food at home and turn any outside space a haven for beautiful, fluttering hummingbirds. All you need are 2 simple ingredients and a bird feeder. This is a really fun activity to do with your kids. Younger children can help measure out […]

Friday Night Lights

Little Boy Shooting at Goal

I am just going to come out and say it: I think weekend activities are way overrated and I’m sick of the push to get little kids seriously invested in a series of activities when all they want to do is play in the backyard. My strong feelings regarding the matter are directly related to […]

First Week of School

School started this week! For many parents, this means the end of hectic summer plans and rejoicing in their much-needed quiet time and routine schedule. For some, it may even look like this. For me, while school brings much-needed rest, it won’t be fully quiet for a while – for the first time, I’ll get to spend lots of […]

Holding Hands Hoopla


A few days ago, I accidentally stirred up a bit of a ruckus on the internet about the First Family. After taking a look at an article about how Michelle Obama and Malia dress alike, I noticed that they are holding hands in many, if not most, of the photographs. I commented, “She holds hands a […]
