Car Seats & Strollers- Make Your Own Travel System

There are two baby gear items that you are going to get A TON of use out of: the car seat and the stroller. The odds are good that one or both of those pieces of gear are going to get used on a daily basis, and maybe even multiple times each day. For that reason, you want to make sure they are compatible with one another. Wait, what?!?! What do car seats and strollers have to do with each other? A lot. A whole lot. Allow me to introduce you to the concept of a travel system. This is when a car seat can connect to a stroller creating a “system” by which to transport your child from car to stroller with ease. Why does that matter? Oh young grasshopper, let me explain. Read More

Starting Fresh in the Fall

Starting Fresh in the Fall

Does anyone else feel like Fall is the time to start fresh? Maybe it’s just from spending twelve years of my adult life in school, but the Fall always makes me want to make a change. This year I decided that the thing that needed changing was my closet full of clothing. You know, all those pieces that have been sitting there for over five years just waiting to never be worn again? No? Just me? Well, it’s out with the old and in with the new around here! After going through my entire wardrobe I’d set aside six, yes six, bags of clothing that needed to go. The next step was to figure out where to donate all that clothing. I could have just dropped it off at the local Good Will, but I’d heard about an awesome clothing donation program run by H&M and decided to see what it was all about.  Read More

The Cloth Advantage According to King Dad #SchoolofCloth

The Cloth Advantage According to King Dad #SchoolofCloth

I have a confession to make. When I was pregnant with The Heir, King Dad and I were discussing the possibility of cloth diapering the baby. I wasn’t 100% convinced, but King Dad? He was ALL IN. In a way, he actually convinced me to use cloth diapers. I often hear of moms-to-be or new moms asking how they can convince their partners that cloth diapering is the way to go. So I enlisted the help of King Dad and asked him what it is he likes about cloth diapering. Maybe his answers will help convince your partner if he’s not so sure that cloth is the way to go. Read More
