Storm Trooper bike helmet

Now that summer is in full force, the kids are out and about, taking over the city on their bikes, skateboards and Rollerblades. It's great to see them being so physically active, but it's a little disturbing to see how few of them wear helmets. I k...

Remote for controlling your kids

Shame it doesn't work -- I mean -- good thing this is a joke, because I would never, ever, under any circumstances use a remote on my child. I wouldn't even want to. Never. Ever. For some larger images, and info on how you can buy your very own Con...

Babyproof your computer

"Let me type, daddy! Let me type!" Sound familiar? My daughter has recently discovered that the computer is more than just a mini TV that can produce Sesame Street clips on demand. Now she wants to use the computer. When I'm sitting there with her, i...

Skateboard strollers: "Mama Boards"

I always thought pushing a stroller was boring. Fortunately my daughter felt the same way, so I rarely had to do it -- but if I'd known about the Mama Board, things might've been different. It's not a very complicated concept -- just a small deck w...

Pregnancy and post pregnancy butt pants

I was reminded of the single most important component of my pregnancy uniform when I read my friend Karla's blog post the other day. They are riotously expensive, highly washable, and they will make your fat/skinny/distended/lumpy or otherwise unacce...

Tiny Tots Away

I'm lazy. Incredibly lazy. Give me an easy way to do something and I'll happily take it every time. That's the whole point of having kids, right? Free labor? Well, Justin over at our sister blog Gadling found a new service for parents just like me (o...

What to keep on hand for outdoors adventures

While everyone else is still knee deep in snow, it is now officially Spring here in Texas. We've been wearing shorts for about a week or two and all the doors and windows are open to enjoy the few weeks of nice weather before hot and humid sneak in. ...

Buggy Boards for stroller weary toddlers

My toddler refuses his stroller. He does not like to be contained for any length of time, he prefers to amble at a snails pace, humming and stopping to peruse cracks in the sidewalk and perhaps a splotch of bird poop. And then, inevitably, he'll get...

Controversial car seat test

While scrolling through my news feeds this morning, I noticed a few blogs and news sites with posts dedicated to the latest Consumer Report car seat ratings. There is some controversy over the way the car seats were tested and rated, and this artic...

Stylish, comfy t-shirts for kids

I'm not sure if it's because I live in the middle of the cold artic tundra, and polar fleece is the most practical fabric around here, but cute baby and toddler t-shirts are almost impossible to find in the stores. Nolan has seventy million sweaters ...

Kids deserve art

Where I can, I try to support Mom-based business. In part, it's because I hate the smell of rubber and dirty feet in the massive chain stores...in part because I firmly believe Moms deserve breaks where they can get them. So it was with great pleasur...

Cute saddle bags for your stroller, jogger, dog, you know... everything!

Okay, I have to admit, when this tip came in, I wasn't very excited about it. Diaper bags don't really do it for me. But these are cute. And I can also see the advantages to having a bag that just hooks easily onto your baby jogger, or your stroller,...

Bumbo baby seat: the babysitter

I'm always stunned at how quickly baby gear changes, the gear available when my daughter was born 7.5 years ago is so different from the gear available now. Maybe it just feels like the gear changes really fast, since the years fly by so quickly when...

Neat toddler alarm clock

Lots of my friends have employed the digital clock in their kid's room telling them it's not time to wake up until the clock says 'Seven-Oh-Oh'. When the kids were too little to read the clock, they wrote what the clock would look like on an index ca...
