One of the things I miss the most about my pre-baby life is the ability to get up and go, be it a drive, a rail ride or a flight. I've always been a wanderer and since I don't want that to stop anytime soon, I've decided to keep it going with a baby in… Continue reading Flying solo….with a baby ✈️

As much as I love it when the sun comes out, I dread the moment I have to apply sunscreen on my wriggly cherub. It wasn't so bad when he was less active, but now I end up with more cream everywhere else than on him. I've even tried spray ones to see if it's… Continue reading SolarBuddies ☀️
