Preparing Our Hearts and Home for a Season of Thanks

As soon as we roll into the month of October, I become giddy. People around me are often reminiscing about how awesome the summer was and how they just aren’t ready for the cold mornings and the early sunsets. I can’t relate, though, because the early sunsets and cold mornings tell me that fall is here, Thanksgiving is coming, and Christmas is around the corner. Call me weird if you want, but I get pretty excited.

50% Off Huggies Diapers When You Join Amazon Mom

Parents, this is HUGE! If you are not yet a member of Amazon Mom, you need to join ASAP. From today until November 3, you can receive 50% off all Huggies Diapers, Pull Ups Training Pants and GoodNites Underwear! This is epic. Life-changing, even! With 2 still in diapers at my house, we go through them SO FAST. I don’t even want to know how much we spend on diapers and wipes each month. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a deal this good before.

Snuggle Up with Baby Slippers

In London, the weather has definitely taken a turn for the cold and rainy, after weeks of beautiful fall weather

Suddenly, my little girls are obsessed with the idea of slippers (and since my toes feel chilly too, I can’t blame them!).

Disney has a ridiculously cute line-up of baby slippers this year, perfect for newborns to two-year-olds. I especially love the Dumbo ones; do they come in my size?

Dad's in Charge. Yes, the House Will Stay Standing

Next week, daddy’s in charge, as my wife heads out on a business trip. According to portrayals of dads in many recent commercials, TV shows, and movies, I won’t be able to handle the job of caring for my own son while my wife is out of town.

There have been huge and substantial shifts in the roles of fathers and the acceptance of dads playing an ever increasing role in the daily lives of their kids. But all too often dads are still the butt of the joke and portrayed as inept and unable to care for their own kids.

I’m proud to say that is not me, and probably not your spouse either.
