‘Rediscovering Motherhood'

DIY Toddler Travel

This winter, I tackled airplane travel
with a toddler. Now it was time to
take Little Miss on the road.

As you could imagine, I decided to
find some new activities to hold her
interest, but didn’t want to spend
a fortune on new toys. Little Miss is
beginning to concentrate on tasks,
and is currently fascinated with
sorting. With this is mind, I headed
to a craft store and dollar store to
get inspired.



‘The FTM Chronicles'

Baby Dude Discovers
the Pacifier

When Baby Dude was two months
old, I naively blogged about how
“I (usually) feel rested.”


Well, as he got older, his eating and
sleeping patterns changed. We used
to nurse, play, then sleep. But now . . .




Can the Village be

Celebrity Chef Maxcel Hardy
talks nutrition, a new cookbook
and bringing the culinary arts to

“When I was in high school I saw
a lot of students come to school malnourished. It’s right in our back-
yard. I find it amazing that we live in the
richest country and this is happening.
'One Chef Can 86 Hunger' aims to
raise funds to get into the inner cities
and let people know what we can do."

of Language for
Baby and You at

Raising great kids:
Monica Cost
examines the truth
and myth about the
happiness factor.

My heart broke when I read some
weeks ago, about the 16 year old
who stabbed 21 people at a high
school in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
When questioned by officials, his
response was simply “I just want to
die,” which got me thinking about
the state of our young people, the
importance of…





From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and
producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER),
PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic
misadventures of a young Peruvian bear
(voiced by Firth) who travels to the city in
search of a home. Finding himself lost and
alone, he begins to realize that city life is not
all he had imagined—until he meets the kindly
Brown family, who read the label around his
neck that says “Please look after this bear.
Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven.
It looks as though his luck has changed until
this rarest of bears catches the eye of a
museum taxidermist.


You’ve got to see this!

NEW YORK — The 2014
American International Toy Fair this
week ushered in a collection of the
hottest toys due out this year — from
a Siri-like teddy bear and an augmented
reality bedtime story to a board game
that teaches coding to pre-schoolers —
but scattered within the shiny and
new is the bizarre and wacky.
