The Best Last-Minute Gifts for Kids

December 10th, 2018 by

Often in excruciating detail. Unless, of course, you’re talking about my girls. One wants nothing (seriously, she has candy and gum on her list) and one wants everything (her list includes several technology gifts over $150). Sigh. Check the best last-minute gifts for kids My impossible circumstances aside, I think I’ve rounded up some of […]

Best Gifts for Tweens

December 15th, 2016 by

So, somehow, in the past year, when I wasn’t paying attention, a tween moved in. I don’t know if it was the arrival of the double-digit birthday or the realization that she was completely, positively over American Girl dolls, but my little Lola’s Christmas list started to look a lot like mine… Accessories, clothes, perfume, and, […]

Our Last Minute Family Christmas Card

December 7th, 2015 by

It started when the Nutcracker was canceled. Okay, so it wasn’t exactly canceled. I had written the wrong date on my calendar. Again. The girls were all dressed up with no place to go. I had already postponed our family photo shoot because elves and Christmas pageants and Santa sightings and Eva, my December baby, have swallowed up […]

A few years ago, when my girls were very little, I learned 2 hard lessons as a mom, lessons that completely changed the way I viewed parenthood. Here they are: My kids will have junk food, sometimes, and there is nothing I can do about it. My kids will have junk toys, sometimes, and there […]

SoCozy Boo! Lice Scaring 3-Step System

October 29th, 2015 by

  Warning: This is not for the faint of heart. Like me. So maybe I should stop now. After all, I am the type of woman who does contortions at the mere suggestion of a critter. But I must persevere… When Shakespeare was talking about death and taxes, he forgot to mention lice as one […]

5 Back to School Outfits for Boys

July 29th, 2015 by

I know I tend to be a little bit of a know it all. And I’m working on it. I promise. It’s just that I know so many random things about so many random things. But there are a few things I know absolutely nothing about. I hope that didn’t come as too much of […]

5 Back to School Outfits for Girls

July 28th, 2015 by

It’s back to school week here at BeautyMommy, and like most things in my life lately, it’s off to a late start. The concept of school itself has evolved for us. For the first two years of real school for Lola, she went to a private school. After it closed, she spent two years at […]

10 Best Safe Sunscreens for Kids

July 15th, 2015 by

Moment of silence: There are no longer any lazy ways left to apply sunscreen to your kids. With sprays considered dangerous and towelettes ineffective, the only method left to parents is an old fashioned lotion or cream. Sticks are effective and handy for the face, but, as Dr. Prystowsky mentioned in my recent post, The New […]

6 Best Mother Daughter Brands

June 24th, 2015 by

  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. My days are numbered. I have passed the age when most women have succumbed to sensible hair, and I’m not far from the age where they also decide to wear sensible shoes. I haven’t given in to either, yet, because long thick hair and high heels […]
