Anchor Mom: Preparing for Preschool

My “baby” just turned 3.  He’ll be the first to tell you he’s no longer a baby.  But since he has a fall birthday, I get to pretend for a few extra months before he’s “supposed” to start school. But the truth is that our daycare provider already does school work with him.  And he … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Inducing Labor

Well, it appears this baby is staying put! I guess I can’t blame him – he’s heard his big brother’s toddler temper tantrums – he’s probably a little scared! As my due date approaches (two days away!) I’m thinking more and more about how to naturally induce labor. Some of my co-workers have suggested the … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Guessing Game

With just eight days to go to my due date – I’m getting anxious for this baby to arrive! My co-workers are having a little fun with it, placing their bets on when baby #2 will arrive and how much he’ll weigh. You can take part, by guessing which one of my colleagues has the … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Vision Check

There has been a noticeable change to one of my darlings this week!  Olivia got glasses.  I suspected she needed them about a  year ago, but at the time the optometrist said it was borderline and she may grow out of it.  This September’s appointment was quite different.  We have already noticed what a benefit … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Back to School

Forward: There are two versions of this post.  I couldn’t decide which one was a better description of this time of year. VERSION 1: UGH.  (That’s about all I can muster for today) VERSION 2: Yay!  School, soccer, and swimming are all back in session. (why can’t I find a sarcastic font?) Growing up, I … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Class Treats (Allergen Free)

With school around the corner and more kids with allergies in classrooms – I thought I’d make an allergy-free idea list for class treats!  But even with this list, as a precaution, always check labels and ask parents! I was inspired by this Facebook post I saw last week, “I need to make a treat for … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: #LikeAKid

When my daughter was born, I was really concerned about the impact of having too much pink. So our crib sheets, high chair, and car seat were all neutral.  It did not stop her from wanting her nails painted (mine never are), choosing pink as her favorite color, and pretending to be a princess.  But … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Being the Perfect Mom

I caught wind of the Huffington Post article, ‘How to be a Perfect Mother’ over the weekend. I may have cried a little (remember I am very pregnant!).  It’s a must read article for any parent out there.  Take a look at the article before reading my comments on it. The article said, “The perfect mother always … Continue reading »
