July 28, 2015
This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Pampers.
One of the best things about being a mommy blogger is getting to try all the latest and greatest baby things before the products even hit the shelves. That being said, I don’t endorse every product I review; however, in the case of Pampers Premium Care Diapers, I absolutely recommend these diapers!
First, let me share my story about how I came to test these amazing new Pampers Premium Care Diapers. I received an email from SheSpeaks, then I filled out a brief survey, and I qualified for the review. I expected the diapers to take weeks to arrive, so I was surprised when the influencer kit arrived 2 days later!
Stop Talking About the Effing Mommy Wars
July 11, 2015
We’ve all seen it. Pretty much any “controversial” post written by a woman, regarding parenting or mom-ing, is met with a barrage of the same tired comments: “Stop the mommy wars” or “Stop fueling the mommy wars” or a variation of that notion. Today, I’m telling you to STFU about the “mommy wars”. It’s annoying. It’s anti-feminist. And it’s some serious BS.
Women who have children are “moms”. Ok, fine. Not all “moms” raise their children the same way. Not all “moms” have the same political views. Not all “moms” even have the same birth plan. This whole movement of “don’t say anything against mommy culture because we are all a support system” thing is garbage. GARBAGE.
Just because I’ve had children does not mean I am in some sort of motherhood sisterhood with you. See how stupid that sounds? “Motherhood sisterhood”, though, is really what these whackadoos want. Basically, the rules are:

Pregnancy Guide to Caffeine at Dunkin’ Donuts
July 3, 2015
Since many of my readers enjoyed the Starbucks Guide for Pregnancy, I decided to make a caffeine guide for pregnant Dunkin’ Donuts lovers.
The current pregnancy guideline regarding caffeine is to avoid caffeine as much as possible. However, the March of Dimes and several other sources say keeping your caffeine under 200mg a day is perfectly acceptable. So, how much coffee is 200mg? Well, it depends on the coffee. Did you know that a shot of espresso has less caffeine than a cup of coffee? Did you know that “light roast” coffees have more caffeine than “dark roast” coffees? Did you know that a 14oz cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee has 178mg of caffeine? Well, that’s why I’m publishing this article: to answer your caffeine questions regarding Dunkin’ Donuts coffee beverages.
Tula Tuesdays: What is Tula Market Value (Or Why Does a Used Baby Carrier Cost More Than a New One)?
June 16, 2015
Parents new to the Tula world scan eBay, craigslist, and B/S/T groups with confusion.
“I thought a new Tula went for $149, how come this one costs $300?”
The deeper down the rabbit hole they explore, the worse it gets.
“I thought $300 was bad. Why is this one $1,250?! Wait, look, there’s one for $4,000!”
“No one pays that much for a baby carrier. No one.”
“Wait, was that $4,000 Tula just marked as sold?!?!”
