For those of you who are pet parents, how do your pets behave in stressful situations? Are they pretty good or do they wreck havoc. Having a new baby and somewhat antsy dogs, I didn't know how they'd respond. The more nurturing and caring of the two, JR, ended up being more avoidant of baby than anything and our louder, constantly needing attention BabyPom, ended up wanting to give baby kisses all the time, despite also wanting to be held at the same time. I will admit, it's gotten a bit more challenging getting them out for routine walks while taking care of a baby and it certainly contributes to the crazy pent up energy. Regardless, there have been some genuinely stressful situations for the pups and I have found these 5 following tips helpful to keep pets calm in stressful situations.

Summer is finally here. Time really passes by in a blink of the eye. Who would've thought my son is already 5 months old! If he's anything like his mother, he will most likely love Disney as much as I do. I can't wait until we can watch my Disney favorites together. Speaking of Disney favorites and summer holidays, how are you keeping your little ones busy? I've got something to help out.

As you might have guessed, we have a new baby! Time flies by in the blink of an eye. Our precious baby boy was born late January and well, I have had delusions about what I would have accomplished during my maternity leave. I have to say I will sorely miss him when I start my day job again shortly. If there is anything I've learned...being a first-time mother is rough, even when you think you know it all already. There is so much to learn and do that there is really little to no time for yourself to recuperate after the birthing process and the 9 months of pregnancy. This is why I have put together A First-Time Mom's Top Practical Baby Gift Tips. Yes, people are generally happy for you and have generously gifted you with something for the baby. Is it callous that I'm making a list of the best gifts? I don't think so, I appreciate the kindness, but really, this is just a simplification of baby registries. We didn't do a baby registry because we felt like it meant we expected gifts from our friends and family. However, we still received lots of goodies and though we appreciate it all, yes, there are some things that are more appreciated than others. So here goes...the top 10 Practical Gifts that a First-Time Mommy wants...but may not tell you at risk of sounding unappreciative.

I have to admit, parenting is a lot harder than I ever thought it would be. I never thought my maternity leave would revolve only around my adorable son. Yes, I knew there was the diapering, feeding, changing, loving and snuggling. However, I never thought it would take up my entire 24 hours. Despite all of this, I was determined to lose my pregnancy weight. I'm not quite there yet but it is coming off, slowly but surely. My sweet tooth certainly wasn't helping, so I was happy to get some help from Sans Sucre (French for "Sugar Free"). Curious how you can still enjoy your sweets with no sugar? Read on...
