DCDT Review: The Quest Kids

As the kids have gotten older, they’ve begun to have a bit more of an attention span for the various things that we, as adults, enjoy. Books, visual entertainment, and (finally) more complex tabletop board games. Don’t get me wrong, we still occasionally enjoy a round or two of Candyland, but now that their tiny […]

Growing up WAY too Fast

Be careful, parents. One day, you’ll be fitting your child for his first “big kid” car seat, and the next thing you know, you’ll be taking them to places where they don’t think they need to hold your hand anymore, and then coming home and having them disappear to play video games with a friend […]

Kicking off the first of the home renovation posts (and trust me, there are a ton coming down the line) is just a short one with a quick one hour update I made earlier this week.  We had a couple of these old eyeball lights (seen above) right in front of our fireplace.  We had renovated […]

Where have I been, and Where am I going?

I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t slack off on the blog, lose track of time, and then have a year go by with zero posts.  Thankfully, I realized this morning that it’s only been 11 months, so I’m keeping my promise. So now the big question: Where have I been, and where […]

DCDT Review: Ding Dong, I See You (Ring Doorbell Review)

MOMPC would love to do a guest post and tell you that my last post, talking about making life with a kid a little easier through the wonderment of technology, was the last but of “home automation” that I would purchase.  Sure, she doesn’t mind the occasional $15-$20 GE Link Lightbulb (of which we’ve added at least […]

Making Life with a Kid A Little Easier…Automatically

Having a kid is no walk in the park.  You’re constantly busy, constantly tired, and it never seems like you get a second where it doesn’t seem like you have your hands full (literally and figuratively).  Since arriving at our house 14 months ago, we’ve watched NPP go from a tiny little peanut that spent […]

Where did the time go?!

So…it’s been a few months, huh?  Where did the time go?!? A little over 3 to be exact.  Those of you with children older than one, feel free to sympathize with me here, but…I’ve barely had time to pick my own butt, let alone blog!  Did you guys know that raising a one year old […]

Buying Our Child’s Safety. Or….Not.

For the past couple of weeks, MOMPC and I have been talking that it was time to finally stop hauling NPP’s tiny hind-end around in his infant car seat everywhere we went.  Lugging 30 pounds of baby and seat up and down stairs gets to be quite tiring after you do it just once, and […]
