I found this and thought it was brilliant, if only they had an app version for my husband.
My three year old is very active. She has a difficult time sitting still even for things she enjoys, like movies. So, as you can imagine, time-outs were as much a punishment for me as they were for her! I found myself spending the duration of time-outs putting my daughter back in her seat.
Discussing this issue with a co-worker one day, she asked me if I had ever tried a “calming jar” for time-out. Read more [...]
I remember when I was little and my grandma made me homemade dresses. Watching her sew and try to manuever the pattern. Was like top notch engineering work. It looked impossible.

That comment partially came because I was very attached to a J Crew sweater that had gotten a little worn. And he felt like I never wore over sized (homeless people) sweaters when we were Read more [...]
So sometimes this happens ... I went into Right Start for a cup holder and left with two new car seats. The reason was they were on sale and only had two more and it will be the one they need soon and the last one they need since it holds them to 120lbs (a petite adult) and it converts into a booster seat.
I like this seat because A. it has cup holders. The constant "mommy here" as Ila reaches her milk cup towards me was driving me insane and frankly is unsafe. B. the fabric feels like a sleeker Read more [...]
