Fall has always been a favorite season of mine. Pumpkin patches, apple picking and crunching leaves work together to create an atmosphere of fun and exploration for children. Over the years we’ve collected acorns, gone on hay rides, and gone apple tasting. I’ve even broken some rules and climbed apple trees that weren’t supposed to […]
FishBaby turned two last week. Can you believe it?! She was born just a few months after LifeasMOM: The Blog and so many of you have known her even before she was born. This little girl is a hoot, that is for sure. She looks a lot like her grandmother who passed away when she […]
You know how I love cute cakes and cupcakes. As the cupcake craze is taking over my home, I’m realizing how cupcakes can be an especially easy dessert, perfect for the holidays.

See this guy? He’s my resident scientist/archeologist. He loves all things having to do with biology as well as historical artifacts. He devours nonfiction books like some read comic books.

After that, it was hit and […]
I don’t think we even had kids when we saw the first Toy Story. And I think FishBoy13 was about 2 when we took him to see Toy Story 2 at the theatre. He was terrified. Obviously, we cared more about the story than he did. But, the Toy Story films have been near and […]
For the past few years, I’ve hosted a very fun event called The Birthday Cake Round-Up. Twice a year readers get a chance to show off the creative birthday cakes they’ve made for their children. And I’ve made some pretty fun ones, too, sometimes just for this occasion. For the curious, check out past round-ups: […]
My littlest FishBoy turned six last week. And although he was dressed as Indiana Jones by 8 am that morning, he chose not to have an Indian Jones Birthday Cake as he has for the past two years. Two years ago it was the an abandoned temple and last year, it had to be snakes.
No, instead he asked for a Death Star Birthday Cake this year.
