    I'm having a hard time figuring out what is more fun about the 2 Hilarity Hoppers that have recently joined our tour of summer fun: is it the classic fun of a hipity hop ball or the adorable themed characters? Maybe both! I remember having a hopper as a child but mine was a simple ball with a handle. The Hilarity Hoppers have taken this classic toy...

    There is nothing that has ever terrified me more than giving birth. I suppose it hasn’t been long enough yet; I can still remember each and every bit of searing pain as she came out. I can also remember the first time she looked into my eyes – and I hope I never forget that moment. She came out with her dark blue eyes wide open, looking around at her new world. Nine pounds, five ounces. Painful, says mommy, and in danger of blood sugar issues, say the nurses. They told me they had to prick her little heel every three hours for the next 24 to 48, depending on how fast she leveled…

    Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage Charlize Theron has adopted a second child, a daughter named August. The actress worked with an adoption agency and gained custody of the baby, an African-American girl born in the United States, in July, PEOPLE has confirmed. The news was first reported by TMZ. Theron adopted her older child, now 3½-year-old son Jackson, in 2012. As the Mad Max: Fury Road star told Ryan Seacrest in March of that year, “It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations. Everyone’s just been so lovely — it’s been really nice.” That spring,…

The cells can detect the toxic effect of over a dozen drugs with greater than 97 percent accuracy.

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:02 pm
    Babies born very premature or severely underweight are at heightened risk of becoming introverted, neurotic, and risk averse as adults, indicates research. Very premature birth at less than 32 weeks and/or very low birthweight of less than 1500 g are known to be linked to a heightened risk of autistic spectrum behaviours, but it has not been clear if prematurity and low birthweight might affect other adult personality traits.

    Apparently I have been living on another planet for the last few months because I hadn’t heard about the grand opening of Thaikhun (36 George Street, OX1 2BJ) in April. I only noticed last week that it had replaced Cleaver on busy George Street, and made a mental note to visit ASAP, since Thai is one of my favourite cuisines. So during a jam-packed day of museum-visiting and errand-running, we stopped at Thaikhun for lunch. My foodie friends will probably be aghast to know that I have become (or rather, re-become) vegetarian this year, and I admit it has made it more challenging to dine…

    Often, we hear mothers being called “superwomen,” described as “amazing,” and tagged as “miracle workers.” And oftentimes we see them shrugging off the compliments as if they were unnecessary for something that is expected of them. But if you look closer, behind the shrug is a knowing grin, for they know they just pulled off another superhuman stunt. Mothers, our kind of breed, is not rare. In fact, it’s so common no one notices how cryptic we can be sometimes. What is rare however is the ability to mutate into a version outstripping the average…

It’s so weird!”  She added, “I think it has a lot to do with if you’re healthy before you got pregnant.  Your body automatically goes into the healthy zone.

    “Sleep like a baby”…..have you heard that expression before? If so, then you know most people use it to mean someone is sleeping peacefully and deeply.

    The 8-10 month sleep regression is a tough one, parents. I’m just going to come right out and say it. You’re already feeling weary and worn out from the 4 month sleep regression, which is a doozy itself (and which creates permanent changes in your baby’s sleeping habits), you’ve endured the 6 month growth spurt, and you may even have embarked on sleep training, since the period between the 4 month regression and the 8-10 month regression is a great sleep training window. And then – after all that sleep deprivation you’ve been through, and after all that…

    So the summer has begun. I officially quit adding to the weekly assignment list spiral over a week ago and we are in our first 2 month summer break in a long while. We have homeschooled year round by necessity for the past few years because of distractions (two of them who are 6 and 4 currently), medical issues, and other problems. I would say that 90% of the time, the year won’t turn out the way you plan it… but about that often, something else will happen that wows you into the realization that God was the one re-directing your steps. In his heart a man plans his course, but the…

Ever notice how hard it is to find good books that are recommended by your history curriculum these days? It’s like the public library is actually trying to erase the memory of them. I know it’s not just me thinking it. I love a good book. I love the way an old book smells. I love seeing my kids reading books. Despite all the newest technology, I just can’t…

    The elusive Normandie Drake!Last year I guessed that the 1935 debut of Normandie on the SSA’s list was inspired by the maiden voyage of the SS Normandie. Just a few weeks ago, though, I stumbled upon a theory that makes a lot more sense. I was in the middle of researching the name Terrylea (a one-hit wonder from 1948 — any guesses?) when I found myself on the IMDB page for Terry and the Pirates (1940). IMDB pages are full of names, so whenever I land on one I feel compelled to skim. And on this particular page I happened to spot the character name “Normandie Drake.” It…

    At the top of New Zealand’s list of most frequently rejected baby names every year is Justice. But what if you’re a New Zealand resident who already has the name? Get ready for “a heap of drama.” A women in Christchurch named Justice Tainui recently tried to register her baby girl (Isla), but she wasn’t allowed to because of her own name, which she was told was invalid. Not only that, but Internal Affairs then tried to convince her, ridiculously, that her name was “Justine” because that’s what they had in their system. With the threat of being…

    I’ve long been curious about the name Clione. It debuted rather impressively on the national list in 1938, but dropped off the next year and hasn’t been back since. 1939: unlisted 1938: 16 baby girls named Clione [debut] 1937: unlisted Clione is similar to the name Cleone, which was in use during the first half of the 20th century, but I doubt it’s a variant because Clione’s single-year appearance doesn’t match up with Cleone’s peak usage (from the mid-1910s to the mid-1920s). One adorable thing that kept thwarting my search efforts was the genus Clione,…

    When I was a kid, I remember visiting London for a holiday and my parents took me and my brother to Hamley’s toy store for the first time.  It was like a dream come true.  We were small, wide-eyed kids who couldn’t quite believe a shop like this existed.  We had only ever been to small toy shops before, so to see this kind of scale was almost too much for us.  Everywhere I turned, there were toys and games that went from floor to ceiling or so it seemed to me.  Toys that I could touch and feel and smell!  We weren’t allowed to buy much – we were each given a…

    How beautiful are these wooden toys and decorations?  I’m such a fan of simply designed wooden toys that can be used as pretty little decorations once they’re outgrown as play things.  Both the sweet wooden cars and the stunning elephants wouldn’t look out of place in any space in your home like on a book shelf in the living room.  Also all of these toys and decorations are handmade using natural materials like wood, cotton and felt.  If I had to do the whole baby stage again, these minimal goodies from Pinch Toys would very much be on my list.  So pretty, don’t…

    During the Summer holidays do you plan an outing everyday for your kids?  I don’t because I think it’s important for kids to have unstructured play time.  By that I mean simply spending time at home and letting them use their imaginations to just play.  By planning too many activities and trying to fill every minute of their time, I think kids lose the ability for creative play.  So at our house, we tend to mix it up – a few planned outings each week and lots of home time in between.  For home time I like to have a few things up my sleeve to help keep Anya occupied and…

    The Summer holidays are in full swing and we’ve been getting out and enjoying London.  We rarely go away over the Summer because London is such a great place to be at this time of year and there so many Summer activities for kids in London.  This Summers mission is to enjoy as much of our beautiful city as we can and when I find something super fun to do, I thought I would share it here.  Earlier this week, along with some friends, we headed to the Southbank which is always a fun day out.  There is always a fab atmosphere, food, street performers and so much more.  Our plan was to…

    Do you have a momform?  By that I mean a mom uniform!  I certainly do.  For the school run at least I think I am almost always in skinny jeans and a tee/top in Summer paired with ballet pumps and in Winter it’s back to those skinnies but with boots and chunky knits.  I love my denim but I seem to stick to jeans only and I’ve kind of fallen in to the same trap when it comes to Anya.  The only denim in her wardrobe is a pair of skinny jeans.  But there are so many more denim styles out there to love for women and especially for kids – from denim dungarees to skirts and…

    Have you ever wanted different subscription forms for different pages or categories in your WordPress blog? Sidebars do not always have to contain the same content. From our perspective, changing a sidebar is useful if you have individual mailing lists for each category, and want to put the right subscription form in the right sidebar. I recently visited Wordcamp in North Canton, OH and discovered a powerful plugin that accomplishes this easily without extra PHP coding.
