I had the opportunity to attend a “Second Helping” of Church Basement Ladies at Derby Dinner Playhouse last week, for the opening of Church Basement Ladies 2! The show was a great way to get together with some great girlfriends and to remember the importance of people like us who volunteer in our community and reach out to others. This musical is about a group of Lutheran woman who reminisce and share in each other’s lives over food in the church basement in Minnesota. But, do not fear; Even if you are not a church goer, a Lutheran, or have not...

My son started Kindergarten today. I was trying to think of something I could give him sort of as a “congratulations on this milestone” gift. However, I didn’t want it to be just another video game or movie. He spends too much time in front of the TV screen as is!

With my first son, I made all of his baby food and felt so great about being able to offer him healthy meals. By the time my second baby arrived though, time was not my friend and I needed a better solution! Baby Bistro has taken all the stress out of me not having the time or the patience to make baby food! Jarred baby food isn’t always the best option, with it having a...

The Baby K’tan is a great alternative to the traditional stretchy wrap. I have three boys, and they loved to be worn. I would use the stretchy wrap for the first several months, and when they were around five months, I moved to a structured carrier. I loved my wrap, and really couldn’t live without it - especially on the days when they were fussy. When I tried the Baby K’tan for the first time, I was amazed at how simple it is to use. I was wearing my baby in a matter of minutes. It came with excellent illustrated instructions,...
