Diaper free parents own carpet shampooers.

Why is it that no one diets slowly? It is the safest way to go, and it makes it hard to gain it all back.

If you are putting pumps on your baby girls, shame on you! They'll have time in the future to grow corns, and bunions of their own.

Personal Trainer? Playground? Which would you choose?

I'm not fond of the Duggers, but If one is going to tell the sex of the baby at a party, then I think using the color of the cake is an awfully cute way to do it. We have wedding cakes, why not baby cakes?

Pink or blue baby cake? What a cute idea and special way to announce the sex! Just think how special it would be to tell your mom and dad by having them cut into te cake!
