Baby Memories

Your baby grows up quicker than you think, and you'll want to remember every memory. These easy scrapbook and memory-making ideas will help you record every milestone.

When You Don’t Want Your Baby to Grow Up

I’ve never been super into babies. When I see a baby, I don’t squeal in delight or rush to hold it. I mean, they’re cute – they’re absolutely adorable – I just was never the kind of girl who had baby fever.

When my son was a baby, I kind of couldn’t wait for him to move on from that stage. I had a rough time adjusting to new motherhood, and I don’t think I fully grasped how fast it all goes. Now my youngest is a year and a half old (and my oldest is 3!) and I am wishing for time to slow down.

How My Kids Have Changed What Halloween Means to Me

I grew up in New York City and was raised by an overprotective mom trying to do her best with raising two kids in a foreign land. Born and raised in the Caribbean, my mom had been here for about two years when my brother came along, and I was born six years after that.

By the time we were old enough to go trick-or-treating, she was familiar with the United States, but not familiar enough to let us go knocking on doors asking for anything—especially not candy.

4 Halloween Traditions I'm Excited to Pass on to My Kids

Is it just me, or does Halloween seem to be the craftiest holiday? I mean, every holiday makes for fun family crafts, but Halloween just has so many! And who can forget trick or treating, pumpkin carving, getting dressed up in costumes, and having themed parties?!

My family always had so much fun at Halloween — and now that I have two boys of my own, I am so excited to continue some of those traditions as well as start our own.

Here is a list of four family traditions I will be continuing with my little ones!

How I Shop for Baby's Holiday Outfits

I have to admit that one of my favorite parts of parenting is picking out cute outfits for my kids. And kids’ clothes today are cuter than ever! I love all the teeny tiny options.

Now with the holidays coming up, there are so many outfits I will need to buy. There’s Thanksgiving (day and night, because we like to hit up as many turkey meals as possible), Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, special church services, and New Year’s Eve. My kids will have to be stylin’.

Instead of Trick or Treating, Why Not Trunk or Treat?

Trick or treating is one of the most fun parts of Halloween. But for some people it isn’t an option. Either they don’t live in a neighborhood where they feel it is a safe choice, or they live in an apartment complex and don’t have anywhere to take their kids to trick or treat. Well, I’ve got a great option for ya: TRUNK OR TREAT!
