I have a love-hate relationship with toys. It’s not that I don’t like toys but they accumulate like nothing I’ve ever seen before even when I actively try to keep the chaos down by regularly purging and carefully curating a wish list for Christmas and my son’s birthday. (Yes, really.) So, needless to say, I’m pretty picky when it comes to choosing toys for my son. I have two primary requirements: educational and compact or at the very least, easy to store in the closet.Read More

I've always been a fan of Valentine's Day and not as a romantic holiday. I think it's because my parents always made it a special day for us, they made it about family and showing love to one another. I know, I know, we can show each other love any day (and we should) but I don't think you can ever go wrong with a special day that's all about expressing our love. I appreciated how my parents celebrated Valentine's Day with us and I plan to do the same with my son.Read More
