Pets When You Want Them

There are many, many, many pros and cons to bringing a pet to come live with you.  Living in the city or a small apartment means another being in an already tight space.  We would love to have a dog, but since my husband and I both grew up on farms, the idea of a dog who has to go on walks and has no sense of freedom is a tough sell.  And I’m allergic to cats so that decision is easy.  But every kid needs to grow up with a pet – right?

The Skip Hop Pronto…the one thing I couldn’t live without

Peep was kind of a grab and go kid.  I breastfed. She didn’t spit up or have huge diaper accidents.  If I left with her, I could literally just leave with some diapers, wipes, my breasts and her.  Which meant that I was pretty free to use any bag I wanted.  The Skip Hop Pronto! changing station was the best thing I owned during this time.  I cannot say enough great things about it – it has just enough room for about four diapers, some wipes and a couple of other small things like extra socks or gas medicine.  It is probably the … Continue reading
