Hear the funny and heartwarming stories of raising babies from some moms who aren't afraid to share! These stories may make you laugh or cry or both…and you may just find a useful tip or two.

What I Hope She Always Sees

We don’t enter the world aware of our flaws. As children, we begin to believe we are flawed based on what the people around us think. First, we look for approval from those we love most. Later, we seek that approval from the outside world—our teachers and our friends. Ultimately, all our babies want is to feel like that they are fine just the way they are. Really, that’s what every human being wants.

Meeting "Abuelita" for the First Time

My parents got divorced when I was just nine years old. I stayed close to my mom’s side of the family growing up, but my father’s side was a different story. We lost touch, which was very unfortunate. The last memory I had of my grandmother was when I was just five years old. I remember her coming to visit us in Miami — she lived in California at the time. I also remember a pair of hand knitted pink crochet socks she made for me. I was the happiest little girl with those pink socks. It’s funny how sometimes you remember the most random things.

A Virtual Family Dinner!

Even though Judah’s grandparents and aunts live three states and five hours away, we’re fortunate that we can connect with our family with video chat. We’ve been video chatting with our family almost as soon as we got back home with Judah after he was born. Last night was no exception for our Rosh HaShanah dinner, allowing Judah to have a “virtual” holiday dinner with his Nana and Pop Pop!

Are we a bit of a geeky family? You bet!

My Toddler's 4 Favorite Activities

Being a stay-at-home mom of a 2-year-old and 6-month-old can be stressful — trying to feed one while entertaining the other, putting one down for a nap while the other watches cartoons or colors, chasing after my 2-year old while mixing a bottle for my 6-month-old. So you can imagine my excitement when KJ and I find an activity that can actually keep him occupied beyond 60 seconds!

Here is a list of his four favorite things to do right now:
