city select SALE!

The City Select was the very first high end stroller that I purchased after Sunny was born. My friends and online reviews raved about it. And now, I’m the one preaching! This stroller is fantastic. I went with black, because I think it looks chic for a double stroller (which trust me, that’s HARD to find). I started with it as a double since both my boys were little. They LOVED that the seats could both face me as I pushed them. As they grew, they wanted to face each other. When the giggling and playing got to be too … Read more

potty training 101

Oh, potty training! Amongst ourselves it is in the top ranking for our least favorite tasks as parents. Keeping your cool and being a constant source of positive encouragement, while trying not to pull your hair out? Where is our Oscar? We teamed up with Lysol to brainstorm our best potty training tips. Our middle boys are all four so it wasn’t that long ago that we traversed this terrain, and to be honest we still deal with accidents at night on occasion, so we’re for sure not out of the woods! Potty training takes a long time, and sometimes … Read more

Meet a Small Fry: Aiden

So honored to have Michelle Gilbert, mother of Aiden here talking about Angelman’s Syndrome! Salt Lake City has a walk this next month check it out here:  Angelman Syndrome Foundation’s National Walk. Welcome, Michelle! My husband and I started a family in 1997 with the birth of my oldest son, Shawn. Working in Kansas City, I balanced my time between work and family. But when my youngest son, Aiden, was born in 2004, I had to put everything on hold due to his unexpected medical obstacles. During the first year of Aiden’s life, he was always sick and was frequently hospitalized … Read more

new baby favorites

By Emily. Now that I am about a month in with Raleigh – and hindsight as they say is 20/20 – I wanted to share the items that are actually saving my bacon on a day to day basis. It can be so different for every baby, and that is what I love about reading these types of posts! I think as parents we learn very quickly to adapt. It’s a survival method, right? We adapt so well that we often forget that certain aspects of taking care of a baby don’t need to be so hard. So many times … Read more

Happy weekend everyone!! The first official weekend of Summer for a lot of you, yeah? Whether you love Summer or dread it you have all our love and support. Here’s what we’re thinking about this week: NICOLE:Eating: After a long search for my favorite popcorn, I’ve concluded that Amazon is the easiest and most reliable place to find it. The only issue (which I hardly see as an issue) is you have to buy a box of 12. HIT ME! Wearing: These minimal pretty Ray Bans have made their way to the top of my ridiculous sunglass obsession. They are the … Read more

CIRCLE with Disney

By Emily. So excited to share this new discovery with you guys today! We are constantly worried about our kids and devices. Protecting them from mature or inappropriate content, making sure the time they spend on those devices is educational and helpful to their growth. And of course keeping everything balanced — not too much but maybe enough to get that urgent email sent off. 😉 We’ve all noticed (moreso in some kids than others) that too much screen time makes them GRUMPY! Irritable, agitated, restless. It’s so interesting to watch and seeing those reactions only makes Circle with Disney that … Read more

Happy weekend everyone! We are extra excited because both Nicole and Emily are heading down to California and the Small Fry fam will be together again at last. We’ll be sure to share the fun but face time is always the best and vital for our work morale. Who are we kidding, we’re besties and what other reason is there? NICOLE: Wearing: ALERT! Karen Walker’s are finally at Nordstrom. They’ve been hard to track down where we live so yay! Love these. // Also soaking up my last few skiing days. It was so hot yesterday I had to shed my layers … Read more

Munchkin Latch Bottle!

By Jenna: By the time I got to my third child I thought, oh it’s fine I’ve got THIS. In came Lolly who broke all the rules, one of which was NOT being a bottle baby!! She ONLY liked to nurse and it was such a difficult experience as I could never feel comfortable being away for longer than 2 hours! In came Munchkin’s Latch Bottle. Guys I tried every SINGLE bottle. And while this is a sponsored post – the only reason we took it on is because I can 100% tell you from first-hand experience that this was the … Read more

Another weekend here! Here’s what we’ve been loving and thinking about! JENNA:Wearing: Okay I’ve been on a “spending freeze” of sorts but found myself at Old Navy recently dying over EVERYTHING! Seriously they’ve done such a good job this season and everything is 40% off right now! I grabbed these high waisted bottoms, this awesome poncho, these neon pink sandals and this killer shirt. Reading: I am reading and re reading this book I recommended a few weeks ago. I really can’t tell you enough how it’s changed the experience in our home! Everyone, including myself are happier! Listening: Well mostly Periscope. Honestly I’ve stopped watching TV or … Read more
