What are your favorite foods?

ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that is bad for me! LOVE chicken strips, jack in the box tacos, chocolate milk, swordfish, artichokes, anything with ground turkey, and mac n cheese

Ask me anything

Do you think it's hard to make friends? Have your friends changed since you had Pella?

I dont think its hard to meet and make friends, its hard to keep them Ive found the girls Ive known for years and years are the girls who will always and have always been there. I have AXED tons of "friends" since Pellas birth, bc they seem to not care or make an effort. their loss! but I really did find out who my real friends are, thats FOR SURE!

Ask me anything

Can you post pictures of each of your tattoos please?

You got it! I will at some point this week.

Memorial Day Weekend!

Yesterday was off to a bad start, Pella woke up to a PISS leaking diaper (Target UP brand) hate them, but trying to use through them!!! Piss was everywhere.....she wouldnt eat all morning and afternoon because she so badly had to poop, so we were on our way to my dads to swim for the first time and Pella pooped. WHAT A DISASTER!!! the poop went up her back into her armpits, all over her side, all in her seat...it was gross! But we made to my dads she ate and we did a little Cuzzi session, poor thing was soo tired from that big turd, she passed out in the middle of pool time!
Also, my stepmoms horse gave birth to her first baby girl on Sunday morning!
isnt she cute!!!???

BOSS LADY Valeria and daughter Olivia

ay Hello to Boss Lady Valeria and her lovely daughter Olivia (shes so precious!)

DO YOU WANNA BE A BOSS LADY???? Just email me these questions and a few of your favorite photos to:
Marcesemail@gmail.com


Name: Valeria

Where do you live: San Diego

Child(s) Name & Age(s): Olivia Simone, 6 months, 10/27/09

What's your favorite thing about being a mom?:
I have learned to find the deepest happiness in the most simple things. Nothing has ever made me happier than waking up in the morning in bed with my partner and baby, or seeing her explore this new world, and that silly toothless grin. Staring at her is my favorite hobby, she is just so beautiful to me. I can lay and do nothing with my pea but I feel that my heart is just so full.


What's your least favorite thing about being a mom?:
Quite honestly the toughest part for my has been losing my precious sleep. My cup of coffee has been a faithful friend. Lately she is waking up with a lot of energy at around 5am! At the very least I have learned to appreciate the sunrise...


Tell us something unique about you:
The first time I was ever officially published was when I was thirteen. My poem was chosen to be part of an anthology. I have been writing short fiction since I was very young but took a hiatus during my pregnancy. I can thank my blog for being a great release.

Tell us why your kid is the bomb.com:
Olivia is the bomb because she is already way cooler than her father and I. She has mod bangs and danced to Belle and Sebastian since she was in utero. No one can pull of polka dots like the pea, that's for sure.

One of your favorite "remedies/ or tricks of the trade"(for gas,
teething,sleep,ANYTHING):
I am still new at the mom gig and am surely still taking more advice than giving. Still, I have found that following my motherly instinct is what works. I have a very happy baby because we stay so in tune with her. We try to do what is best and not just what is easiest. To be honest, she is the Boss Lady.

Storing Veggies without Plastic

How to not use plastic to store any of your vegetables or fruits. For example, store carrots, whole or cut, immersed in containers of water. They will stay crisp in the refrigerator for weeks. (Make sure to change the water frequently.) Celery works the same way.

How's cloth diapering going? My son is 11 months old and I want to start, using AIO's but I'm scared of the price and the mess, but really want to do it. Any advice? Any brand to avoid? Any brand you love?

Clothe Diapering isnt being used as often as Id like too. They diapers say one size, but Pella is still too small for them, they fit her around but the rest of diaper is SO huge on her..she still fits in the newborn cloth diapers I have for upt o 8lbs! lol. My advice thought would be to be patient with cloth diapering, start of by just using them while your at home, get a good feel for the diaper, how long you can keep the baby in it, does it leak? Poo explosions? ..I have 3 different cloth diapers Ive tried, Fuzzibunz, Rumparooz, and Grobaby.
Ive found I like Rumparooz the best, and I use the Grobaby liners inside the diaper for outings....
Ill be upating the blog with how cloth diapering is truly going when she can actually fit in the diaper! lol

Lets talk GEAR...strollers.

Being a store Owner, I physically get to see, touch and demo EVERY stroller or literally almost every stroller on the market.....now there are HUNDREDS of them, so Im going to post a Sampling of my TOP picks....


TOP PICK!
Uppababy Vista
  • Bassinet and reversible seat are easy to attach and remove on the frame

  • Powerwalkers and tall parents will appreciate the excellent legroom for taking a natural stride. The rear brake is controlled with a single little foot pedal.

  • Durable, high-end fabric line the reversible seat for your child's comfort, and can be removed and washed. Multiple seat recline positions are easily adjusted. An adjustable footrest helps provide the most natural fit for your child.

  • The adjustable handle telescopes upward and outward to bring shorter parents closer to the stroller and taller parents a bit farther away (increase legroom).

  • Rubber tires on foam cores simulate the great performance of real tires on all sorts of terrain, but never go flat

  • Four-wheel shock absorbers help smooth out the ride.

  • Easy folding mechanism quickly collapses the stroller (with the seat attached) into a compact, self-standing position.

  • Very large HUGE! storage basket on the UPPAbaby Vista is one of the largest in its class, with two convenient pockets for wallet / keys / cellphone and a water bottle

  • The included bassinet is the so cozy, you'll want to use it indoors too! It's safe to use up to 20 pounds. The UPPAbaby Vista bassinet/pram is lined with soft organic cotton/soy fabric, has a carrying handle and includes an apron and sun/bug shield.

  • Retails for $679.99

    * this is the stroller I chose to purchase for Pella and I have not one compliant other then the cup holder is a little cheesy, but the overall function of the stroller is a BREEZE, and I am a small girl so there is NO way im going to lug around some massive stroller system! Also, a little bummed it doesnt have a snack tray for Peej for when shes a big girl!...but WHATEVE!
    Oh yeah and has the 'Rumble Seat' option if you decide to add an additional baby to your familia, the stroller can grow as your family grows! <---AWESOME!


    2nd Pick
    Orbit Baby G2

    Special features for 2010:
    • 3DRotation™ - Squeeze the side levers to rotate-and-recline in one fluid motion; forward-facing or parent-facing, upright or fully reclined
    • Features orbitgreen™ Certified Fabric – The world’s first stroller with all fabrics and foams certified clean by Oeko-Tex® Standard 100
    • -Excellent ventilation system
    • Can dock and rotate 360 degrees on the Stroller Frame or Rocker (sold separately) Use from birth with the included, reversible, infant insert
    • Included snack tray has a lid and even holds sippy-cups with handles
    • 5-point safety harness and removable support bar
    • Full coverage UV sunshade with "Paparazzi Shield™" extension
    • One-hand adjustable footrest - Lengthens as your child grows
    • Can be used with all models of Orbit Baby stroller frames and rockers

    Retails for $900

    Now, I sell ORBITS ALLLLLL day long, it is an AWESOME system! However it is a hefty investment!! You will continue to have to fork out more cashola for the "toddler stroller" seat when baby is bigger, and the bassinet if you want that as an option. If you can afford it, id say GET IT! the G2 has been completely redesigned based of off the consumers likes and dislikes.The stroller frame is ALOT lighter then the old one, which is a PLUS! My cons with this system are; the infant car seat is HEAVY!!! too heavy! and the storage "pod" bag under neath is just TOO SMALL! and not easily accessible. otherwise this stroller is the "ROLLS ROYCE" of strollers!


    3rd Pick

    Mountain Buggy Urban jungle

    • Super easy pushing. Push urban jungle single with one finger - it's true, we tried!
    • Water bottle holder
    • Newborn-accommodating harness
    • Near-flat recline
    • Extra flat fold
    • The lightweight aluminum frame folds in two easy steps and collapses flat for compact storage. The narrow wheel base reduces the urban jungle's size on the road and in your car's trunk.
    • A water-bottle holder and under seat storage basket hold everything you need to get through your day
    • Compatible with most infant carseats
    Retails for $499.99
    Based upon Joggers, this one seems to take the cake for me, why?
    Its the lightest Jogging stroller on the market, it folds up like a breeze. Cup holder is included, the underneath storage is spacious, full recline for infants or napping toddler, 12" wheels for off/on terrain.. and yes, its a bit more then the "bob" but this stroller comes with more options and is just overall a better Jogging stroller. and I love that the MB has a sleeker more modern look


    Other great strollers....
    • Micralite Toro
    • CityMini
    • Uppababy G-lite
    • Phil & Teds Sport Buggy
    • Bumble ride Indie Twin

    BOSS LADY Rashel and her daughter Scout!

    Say Hello to Boss Lady Rashel and her lovely daughter Scout (Love the name BTW!!)

    DO YOU WANNA BE A BOSS LADY???? Just email me these questions and a few of your favorite photos to:
    Marcesemail@gmail.com



    Name: Rashel

    Where do you live:Oklahoma

    Child(s) Name & Age(s): Scout Marley Monet, 2 years (May 3rd, 2008)

    Whats your favorite thing about bein a mom?: Exploring life through a child's eyes. It brings a lot of things into perspective for me.

    Whats your least favorite thing about being a mom?: Well it's getting better but the not sleeping part is totally killer. I felt like I was on hardcore drugs for months. Also the random case of hand, foot and mouth that Scout got. I kinda didn't want to be a mom after 5 days of hell. HA!

    Tell us something unique about you: I am ambidextrous. Is that unique enough?

    Tell us why your kid is the bomb.com: Scout is a badass because she like veggies. She knows her colors. She can count to 10 in english and spanish. She can bust out some serious dance moves, she tells me she loves me and plays with my hair everyday.

    One of your favorite "remedies/ or tricks of the trade"(for gas, teething,sleep,ANYTHING): Using silly straws to give medicine. Scout typically would throw a massive, full blown fit if she saw medicine coming towards her. We even tried hiding it in drinks but it never worked. We tried the silly straws and BAM she drinks up her medicine like a champ. Also using Lemon Balm drops from the health food store for a cranky, restless baby is amazing. Check with the workers there on how much to give your wee one.
