Reality of PAX with a Baby

This past weekend was a real eye opener for JT and me. Every year since we moved to the Pacific Northwest we have gone to PAX West (or Prime as it used to be called).  We wander around the expo hall seeing what is new in the gaming world and playing a few.  We occasionally … Continue reading Reality of PAX with a Baby

Parenting in a Crowd

Most days I feel like I'm getting the hang of this whole mom thing.  My daughter won't sleep without me or JT pressed up next to her, she won't take milk anywhere except straight from the tap, and she is still working on being able to play on her own without constant entertainment from me … Continue reading Parenting in a Crowd

Website Maintenance

So you may have noticed my absence lately and that is for a few reasons. I'm working on some back-end blog reform!  I'm making the switch to from  I've changed my web hosting service so hopefully there is limited downtime.  I'll be spending some time working on a better blog design, so things … Continue reading Website Maintenance

The SAHM (Or SAHD) Life

My job title is now stay-at-home-mom (SAHM), but what does that mean?  I think it's different for everyone who finds themselves in this position. As a first time mom to an almost 4 month old, for me it means: I don't get near enough sleep even though I'm "in bed" from about 7:30PM until 5:30AM … Continue reading The SAHM (Or SAHD) Life

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game – Review

You may remember that we have a subscription service for board games which ships a new (to us) game every month.  The game of the month was featured at our first board game night -- at least our first since Gem was born.  We had a great time, and ended up with 11 people and 4 babies under our roof!  I was a little … Continue reading Pathfinder Adventure Card Game – Review

Nursery Update!

Now that my daughter is three and a half months old, her nursery has finally come together!  In a previous post I mentioned that we decided to go with a Star Wars theme, but I wanted it to be sort of subtle so that as she ages the room can grow with her. Many people … Continue reading Nursery Update!

Bullet Journal – February 2017

January has been a busy month for me.  JT went back to work, leaving me on my own with Gem during the week.  Trying to keep myself from feeling the post-partum blues, I signed up for various events with other new moms, sometimes up to four or five times a week!  Plus, I'm working to get this blog … Continue reading Bullet Journal – February 2017

Oatmeal Waffles (good for lactation!)

First and foremost, this is not just a recipe for lactating moms!  JT has eaten these and hasn't had problems with unwanted milk production.  So if you are just looking for a way to make waffles a little heartier this is also a recipe for you! As an exclusively breastfeeding mom, I'm always on the lookout for … Continue reading Oatmeal Waffles (good for lactation!)

Letter Tycoon – Review

We are always on the look out for new and interesting games, but being busy and sort of trapped at home with a new baby means that we can't spend hours trying out new games at our local game shop.  For Christmas I thought it would be fun to get JT a subscription service that delivers one … Continue reading Letter Tycoon – Review
