kids are from pluto

How to find a Nanny? Seems easy enough, but please let me rephrase the question. How to find the right nanny? To all the mothers out there, this is no easy task. Not everyone is like Mary Poppins, aka the total package:

  • Thorough
  • Friendly
  • Social

During your search, expect to meet a lot of no-no’s before you find THE nanny that you trust and feel comfortable enough to take care of your loved one.  Start the search early, be detailed, and remain patient. At the end of the day, your ability to choose the right nanny will pay off tremendously later on down the road.

Make your own Stamps

Make your own Stamps!

Huh? You can make your own stamps? Yep, you sure can. But let me first clarify, I am talking about rubber stamps, not the post office stamps for your letters.

It’s quick, fun, easy, and affordable; all ingredients for a wonderful arts and crafts project for your kids. The other day I was browsing around for stamps at Paper Source and surprisingly, when the cashier rang me up, I had a total of $60.  This was just too much to pay for such a simple item so I decided to look for alternative ideas.

One Patterned Wall

Goodbye Summer, Fall is here! Who says we have to wait until Spring to do some cleaning and redecorating? To me, there’s never a bad time to revamp the décor around the house. That said, what are your thoughts on wallpaper?  I used to associate the word wallpaper with tacky because I always had the image of my grandparent’s busy flower wallpaper pattern that made me dizzy after staring at it for so long.

People in general seem to have mixed feelings about wallpaper. On the one hand, it’s not as easy to apply or alter as paint is. On the other hand, it can create a much bolder, more entertaining atmosphere in a room, especially for children.
