You may remember Target’s decision to remove the boys and girls signage in their toy departments. It was a move that myself and many other moms  felt was a really good thing: now my girl can go look at Legos without feeling like she’s crossed into “boy” territory. Or vice versa for the boys – […]

Birdie has just discovered the power of cat videos via Pinterest. Her squeals were cute in the beginning, she is such an animal lover. When it turned into her recounting each video with a blow by blow description, it began to wear thin! Still, it’s obvious she has a thing for cats – like lots […]
