    Something I look for when picking out nursery/kid bedding or room accessories, since I have such a range in ages these days, are items that can grow with the kids or transfer well to other rooms. I like to think long term for everything. So while the yellow and gray trend wouldn't normally be my first choice for colors in a nursery or kids room, because these colors would move so well elsewhere, It's really growing on me.

     One of the first things new parents do after their little one is born is start getting ready for those crucial newborn photos. After all, they’re only that little for like, an hour, right? Before you know it they’re all big and growing into little humans. As a birth photographer here in Halifax, I get to see babies at their tiniest – the moment they come into the world.  It’s not for everyone, but for a growing number of families birth photography is a definite must-have.   If you’re not into the birth photography though, you will likely have newborn shots done.  This is…

    For Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, starting a family was a no-brainer. More accurately, it was (as things always are in their marriage) two brains acting as one. “It started [for us] around the same time, and I don’t think one of us wanted it any more than the other,” says the Guardians of the Galaxy star, who talks with PEOPLE about fatherhood, marriage and his rise to fame in the magazine’s new issue. “She would say, ‘How do you feel about that?’ and I would say, ‘Damn, I’ve been kind of thinking about that too!

I am swooning over the bright colors and eames era inspired prints from graphic designer Jan Skácelík. We've been moving our three girls around in their rooms recently and turquoise is the go-to color for the ex-nusery/soon-to-be new tween room. She's not a retro girl herself but as long as I stay away from light pink and baby things, she'd be tickled turquoise. I collect mid-century modern miniature chairs so the La Chaise caught my…

    My 8 year old daughter is in Girl Scouts. She really enjoys it and goes to almost all the troop meetings and outings. But you couldn't tell her total participation from her vest. I'm not sure if it's because I am behind sewing patches on, missed a million emails about GS events or maybe the patches just fell off. Poor GG. Her vest has about half as many fun patches as the rest of her brownie troop. And this is the last year. So I did a little creative problem solving to replace a few lost/maybe never sewn on badges plus got to support a fantastic blog. I honestly have no idea about the rules…

    I’ve got to tell you, yesterday I was not a good mother. I didn’t turn my back as Declan walked towards an open flame or lock him in a play pin while I double fisted cocktails, but I was grumpy and impatient and just downright bitter. Declan has been much more demanding in general recently but yesterday after four failed attempts at nap time I hit a new level of low. I was exhausted and blaming him for my feelings rather than taking responsibility for them. I started scanning le’ internet for quotes on patience (because that’s what you do when you have none) and I…

But there wasn’t time enough. I treasured the weekend up and decided to share it tonight before it was lost.

I enjoy discussing movies after we see them and have come to a place with my mature teens (17 and 15) that we can discuss themes in movies that are adult in nature. My 15 year old has toyed with the idea of being a singer-songwriter, so we decided to take the PR company for Begin Again up on their offer to let us come see and review Keira Knightley’s latest flick. I made it a daughter and mother ‘date’ night movie and we…

According to the Yukon Bureau of Statistics, the most popular baby names were… Ashley/Brittany/Samantha and Michael from 1991 to 1995, Emily and Alexander from 1996 to 2000, Emily and Logan…

Tristan Cardew (of Britain) and his wife Kristin (of Iceland) live in Iceland and have two children: Duncan, 12, and Harriet, 10. Duncan’s and Harriet’s Icelandic passports have always listed them as Drengur Cardew (Boy Cardew) and Stúlka Cardew (Girl Cardew) because Iceland doesn’t officially recognize their non-Icelandic names.

    The name Charlemagne — French for Carolus Magnus, or “Carl the strong” — debuted on the girls’ list last year, strangely. Let’s celebrate this weirdness by checking out what the King of the Franks named his own kids. Historians believe Charlemagne had about 20 children with various wives and concubines. His first child was born around 768 and his last came along in 807. Here are the names of Charlemagne’s 11 daughters: Adalhaid – based on the Germanic words adal meaning “noble” and heid meaning “sort, kind.” Adaltrude…

    I wish this one were a joke. Alas, it is not. I’ve found three people with the unfortunate name Meconium. One got Meconium as a first name, two got it as a middle. 1. Meconium Lock, born in Texas is 1931: 2. Willie Meconium Cage, born in Texas in 1933: 3. Alfredo Meconium Gallardo, born in California in 1936. What is meconium, you ask? “Fecal discharge from a newborn infant.” Baby poop, basically. While the association isn’t pleasant, the etymology is interesting. Aristotle was the first to use the Latin word meconium to describe fecal matter. The Latin word came from…

Lucia was born that evening.

    A few weeks ago we went strawberry picking.  We had such fun and of course ended up coming back with a ton of strawberries.  A few days later I had some friends and their kids coming over for dinner so dessert had to be strawberries and cream.  Not only did I have the strawberries, I also wanted a very quick and easy dessert as I was short on time.  But even with quick and easy, I wanted it to look nice and not just serve it as a bowl of strawberries and cream.  So I decided to involve some meringues and some madeleines to dress up the dessert. These ones were mini shop bought meringues…

    This is probably one of the most exciting kids collections I’ve seen this year.  It’s cool, it’s playful and unique.   Because of this blog I get to see a lot of kids clothes and quite often they don’t offer anything different.  Then I come across a new collection like this and it’s such a breath of fresh air.  While the clothes are seriously cool, there is no compromise on comfort either. Nearly all of the clothes are unisex which makes the clothes even more special.  I would happily put a little boy or girl in to any of those baggy overalls (heck,…

    We love to travel in this house.  If we ever win the lottery, I know we would spend the rest of our days exploring the world.  Since having Anya, we haven’t given up on travel and neither have we let distance bother us.  We’ve taken her to far flung places like Uruguay, Argentina and San Francisco, all 12 hour flights or longer.   The one thing we have changed is where we stay.  Before it was always about finding a cool boutique hotel but now it’s always apartments. With a child, I’ve discovered that the convenience of a holiday apartment is unbeatable.  It means…

    I think if I ever move to another career it would have to be something to do with decorating babies and kids rooms.  I love putting together inspiration and ideas for how to create a beautiful nursery space or a kiddy space.  My favourite style is Scandinavian and right now I’m really partial to black and white rooms especially with a subtle hint of another colour.  For this mood board I’ve added a dash of pink to brighten up the black and white.  Here’s where you’ll find the picks: 1. stars garland | 2. miffy lamp | 3. heart postcard | 4. cloud postcards and panda…

    I stepped onto my deck to take a look at the garden and thought my eyes were deceiving me.  I wondered if the pole bean teepee was leaning.  I shielded my eyes and squinted to get a better view, but still was unsure. I headed toward the garden, and yes I found the leaning tower of pole beans.  The weight of the vines was pushing the teepee forward and it looked as if it could tumble anytime.  I had to find a quick remedy, oh what to do.  I noticed the extra t-posts leaning on the wood fencing and ran to grab one and stuck in the ground inside the teepee.  Now how…

  • Understanding Common Sleep Training Methods

    Melissa Zdrodowski
    10 Jul 2014 | 11:07 am
    Your baby isn’t born knowing how to sleep through the night. Sleeping through the night is an acquired skill, one we need to teach our children, once they are old enough (4-6 months or more). What exactly is sleep teaching? Our recent blog outlines the basics. The most important factor in sleep teaching is consistency. There are many methods you could use, but the key is to find the one that you can use consistently. Consider these factors: Age of the child (older children often take longer to adapt) Temperament of the child (Is your child stimulated or calmed by your presence? Is he…

    My daughter’s school has a cute tradition. At the end of the school year, all the kindergarteners have a sleepover at the school with just the teachers (no parents!). This is the first time for many of them to be sleeping away from their own beds and their parents. Our teachers are very brave (or very crazy!). The kids really look forward to it all year. But as a parent, I was a little worried. Some parents worried about leaving their kids for the first time, or getting the dreaded midnight call to come pick up their home-sick child, but I was worried about my daughter not getting enough…

I remember when our youngest (now 8-months-old) was about 4 months – I had moved her into her own room and was still using the baby monitor. I was being woken up frequently throughout the night – not only when she needed to be fed and cried but also when she was…

We’ve all heard the stories: days of enduring hours-upon-hours of screaming followed by perfect sleep, or the ones about the parents who still haven’t gotten a decent night’s sleep after more than a year, and even the tales of those seemingly mythical children who have no sleep troubles at all and just start sleeping through the night without fuss at a few months old. “What will our fate be?” new parents wonder.

I’ve already written about a number of new products that I love and I’m thrilled to write about yet another amazing discovery. In a recent blog, I wrote about the challenges of transitioning out of a swaddle blanket. Our babies really slept noticeably better when they are swaddled, so the thought of having them OUT of the swaddle and just in a sleep sack made me extremely nervous. It seemed cruel to have my daughters go straight from feeling like they were back in the…

    When I was a kid, I had a pretty clear vision of the future. And all of my ideas about what the future would hold came directly from television and movies. Perhaps I wasn’t a terribly imaginative child … but I digress. I figured we’d all have flying cars, a la the Jetsons, by the time I was grown. And I figured kids of the future would ride hover boards instead of boring old skateboards. TV and movies also gave me the impression that we’d all have a lot more robots in our lives. I, personally, was looking forward to fewer chores thanks to my own Rosie. While I haven’t heard much in…

I guess you could say we’re both addicted. I’m not rude about it—at least, I don’t think I am. I don’t keep my phone on the dinner table. I don’t glaze over and scroll through my phone when…

    Becoming a mom is amazing. BUT. Why does there always have to be a “but” attached to something good? Well, as with any major life change, becoming a mom can come with growing pains… and pretty tough ones at times. For me, it was the colic. The damn colic. My son didn’t sleep for about a year. Ok maybe longer. He’s 2.5 now and still wakes up in the middle of the night screaming. “He’ll outgrow the colic,” the doctors told me. “Most kids outgrow it by the three month mark.” He didn’t.

    I first learned about the term ‘spirited child’ when my Sammy was just about a year old. A friend gave me Mary Sheedy Kurcinka’s excellent book, Raising Your Spirited Child, and I couldn’t believe how spot on she was in describing my boy. I had previously discovered the term high need baby, but as Sammy was now moving toward toddlerhood, the term didn’t seem to fit. I loved the term spirited child, as I found it had a much more positive connotation than high need. It was also a term that people seemed to be quite familiar with (at least Sammy’s teachers…
