You get lots of advice. You read lots of books. You scour Pinterest and the internet for information. Yes, I will admit that some information is helpful and some information you read ends up being true but most of the time it is so generalized that truth has fallen to the wayside. Having a baby is an individualized experience and every baby is different. I will be creating new posts as she gets older with the new lies we are told as she grows up. These are more about a newborn or preparing for a baby.I a... read more »
Let's be honest with ourselves. Most of us enjoy some reality TV every now and again. The unfortunate thing is that a majority of reality shows are no more real than the boobs, face and ass of reality whore Heidi Montag. Who is that you ask? Good she's not relevant anymore.

It has been 15 years since I gave birth to my baby boy - Jean-Sijent. Friends and readers know how often I talk about him on and about theadvises (aka warnings) I love to discuss here.
Everything happens for a reason they say but back in 1996 when I had a miscarriage with my first baby, I did not believe that at first. It was only after my doctor discovered an ovarian cyst and realized I needed a surgery did I believe. After less than a year, I got pregnant again despite the fact that my ob-gynecologis... read more »

This thing was AMAZING. We got one from my dear friend Chelsea when I was due with Brooklyn. It is a stuffed animal that is attached to a NUK like pacifier (just like the one from the hospital). I had never heard or seen one of these, and we sure got a ... read more »
