Who doesn’t love dinosaurs?  If you’ve ever met a person between the ages of 3 and 99, chances are pretty solid that at one point that person was at least mildly interested in these ancient beasts.  It turns out I know at least three people who are; my 10-year-old daughter...

Momtography – a Photography Class with Moms in Mind

MDM Writer Katie and I attended a Momtography class for free in exchange for writing this review.  All opinions (and photographs!) are our own. When I was in my teens I was obsessed with disposable cameras.  I loved to photograph any and everything, wait for the camera to be developed,...

What To Expect From a CPST

One of the most common refrains that I hear when finishing up a seat check is “I didn’t expect there to be so much information!”  I choose to take it as a compliment.  There’s really quite a lot to learn!  You don’t know what you don’t know until someone tells...

We all know that car seats are life savers. We’ve seen the viral photos of seemingly unscathed car seats pulled from the wreckage of a crash; grateful parents praising the seat for saving the lives of their children, vowing to never buy another brand ever again. But what’s most important...
