New Product Review Club Offer: Nestlé GERBER® Oat & Prune Baby CerealSponsored
I'm a mom of three, so you know I've seen it all
. One of the funniest parenting experiences I have had was the pleasure of introducing my babies to solid foods.

. Babies go from oblivious, cooing non-participants to eagle-eyed gluttons who will snatch greedily at your fork...
New Product Review Club Offer: Dove Go Sleeveless Anti-PerspirantSponsored
I think after the horrible winter we had this year, we all deserve a little pick-me-up pressie, don't you?
Mine came in the mail recently from an online spending binge: a gorgeous black sleeveless top with a bit of a peplum-y flare at the waist. And while I was at it, I tossed a chunky statement necklace into my e-cart, too.
Totally deserved, like I said.
It jump-started my...

My cat is my hero.
Even as I watch her plump self burrowing into my basket of clean laundry for a nap and it's driving me crazy, I remember that time she killed 3 snakes and eradicated the local rodent population in the space of one week.

Skin care is always a bit of a battle for me. I try to keep up with a regimen of regular exfoliation, using toner (when I remember) and always - always
- wearing a daily moisturizer with SPF. Two of my New Year's Resolutions are to drink more water and cut back on sugar, both for general health and to stay ahead of the curve with my combination skin.
And this is kind of
Sun Smart Eye Care Tips for Fall & Winter
Like many people, I wasn't very sun smart in my younger years. Back then, having strongly defined tan lines was a proud testimonial to hours logged basting ourselves in baby oil and lying on the pool lounger all summer long. Maybe even a good base burn to start the sunbathing season? Dumb, dumb, dumb.
Obviously, times have changed. We now recognize the importance of sun safety year-round,...

I'm psyching myself up this morning to share an embarrassing little secret with you all. I didn't think that having a couple of kids and thereby giving up all rights to personal privacy would leave any room for embarrassment, but this is "one of those things" my mother never talked about - and I wish she had.
