The Things That Really Matter (a.k.a. Breaking The Rules)

The Things That Really Matter

It's a topic I've discussed a lot lately over at Y3B.  The perfectionist in me wants to get every detail right but the free spirit in me wants to have fun and follow my passions.  It's a constant struggle many of us face.  Luckily, I've met some folks to help me remember the stuff that brings me closer to where I really want to be (while enjoying every step of the way)...

Nom nom.

(BTW, I make an awesome vanilla flan...
And my cheesecake flan is no slouch either - YUM!)

Through what felt like serendipity at play, I met Stacy Reck of the Dessert First Blog on Twitter and boy has it put our mission into focus.  While the concept of dessert first is not unique to her, Stacy is possibly the most authentic person speaking about her subject matter of choice.  She is living proof of why we all need to "have dessert first" in our lives.
Will you break some rules and have dessert first with us?  I sure hope so!

Baby Sign Language

So my LO (Little One) is almost 7 months old and I have been trying to do sign language with her. There is no one in my family who needs to do sign language but from what I have read it makes it easier to communicate with the baby when they are trying to tell you something but does not have the motor skills to.

The site that I have found to be the most helpful to teach me the signs so I can teach my LO is They have all sorts of videos, articles, games and even flash cards you can print out to help you teach your LO. Here is one of their flash cards :)
