My So-Called Mommy Life #shiftashade clairol

Ever since I’ve had kids, I haven’t had many chances to pamper myself. I can count on one hand how many haircuts I’ve had, I wear minimal to no make-up and proudly sport the ever popular mommy ponytail or messy bun. After two kids and much time neglecting myself, I was excited to spend time [...]

Having two little ones, I appreciate when stores are literally a “one-stop” shop for all of my food, baby and household essentials.

The Hubster plays hockey every Sunday evening. This past Sunday I took both kids to watch his game. Princess Peach has gone to many games but this past week was Little Dude’s first ever hockey game and first time watching his daddy play! He wouldn’t go near The Hubster with his helmet on.

To create the next generation

PPbabynaming

When Princess Peach was 2.5 months old we had her baby naming at our synagogue. This meant that she officially received her Hebrew name, which if you were wondering is Mira Liba named after her great-great uncle and great-great aunt. After she received her Hebrew name our Rabbi made a little speech to us, as [...]
