Nobody wants a safe pinata!

darth pinata


I am looking for some pinatas for the kid’s 8th birthday party.  I kept seeing these “pull string” pinatas and I couldn’t figure out what the heck these were.  I was immediately going to call my friend Simone who does all things party but I figured either she would tell me, or make fun of me for not reading the description. There is a thought! I read the description and it has pull strings that release the candy instead of having to hit it.  Super sad face, boo, and ain’t nobody got time for that.

The adult in me is saying this is a great idea because I can’t imagine how many kids went home crying becuase they got wacked in the face by an over zealous kid trying to get the candy.  The other adult in me is imagining what kind of crazy looks I’ll get when  I instruct a bunch of 8 yr old boys to pull a string instead of beating the crap out of the pinata.  The superior adult in me sees string pulling to not be fun at all and would rather not even have a pinata.  Seriously?

After like no pondering at all the end result, is that I bought the pinata with strings so that my son and his friends can bash it until the legos fall out:)


Mom, YOU are awesome!


Face it, being a mom is hard.  We know this, we tell people this but they ignore us.  They ignore us because they suck. That is why we have each other.

Mother’s Day is coming up and we decided that we need to reward our moms for just being awesome.  You changed a diaper today without getting diaper cream all over your clothes?  YOU are awesome!  You fed your children food today?  YOU are awesome!  You are incubating?  YOU are awesome!  Mom you are just pure awesomeness covered in glitter.

To show you how much we love you we are giving away free cupcakes from Dulce Vegan with purchase to all of our moms who come into the store on Friday and Saturday.  On Sunday all pregnant moms get 15% off.  We have to use the honor system so if you’ve just had a bucket of chicken please do not use your food baby for a discount.  That would be frowned upon.

We are located at 1996 Hosea L.Williams dr, Atlanta ga 30317 in Kirkwood!


Happy Mother’s Day to you all!

The ongoing put your breast away debate.


I am always taken back when I hear someone say they have a problem with a mom breastfeeding in public but they have no problem with the hundreds of thousands of “tit pics” that flood our magazines, timelines, and tvs.  Boobs were designed to feed your child.  Yes, are balls of fun for all who come in contact with them but let’s not shame moms for using them for there intended use.  Girls gone wild sold how many millions of copies?

I keep on waiting for someone to say something crazy to me while I’m nursing my daughter.  They will have met the wrong one!  I pop out on demand!

Here is Alyssa Milano and Wendy Williams having “the” discussion about breastfeeding.  Go Alyssa!

So we are going to do this vaginally are we?


I am a huge fan of music.  Music has the ability to change my mood, intensify my feelings, and or just make me get up and dance!

I play music for my children.  My 7 year old is a dance machine who thinks he’s Usher, and my one year old just bops up and down.    We are a family of Beliebers and proud!

I didn’t do the belly headphone things with either of my children.  I would like to believe they are both still smart, and they clearly love music.  Well now the belly buds are not enough.  The music must penetrate deeper they say! (you know I am laughing hysterically and myself now, right?  I said penetrate! hehehehehehe)


The Spanish have come up with the Baby Pod.  It is to be inserted vaginally and you play music through it via, your phone or ipod.  Sooooo while I support every mom’s right to introduce their child to Bob Marley early, this may be where I do a hard pass.

See for yourself.

Our kids will never know the struggle of a Walkman.


I came across this on facebook and immediately cracked up.  I was just having this conversation with one of my customers this morning.  Our kids will never know what it’s like to sit patiently on your bed with a pencil carefully winding your favorite cassette to get the actual tape back into the case so you can play it.  Or even worse trying to gently pull the tape out of the tape player without snapping it when it gets stuck and goes haywire.  Yes my friends, those memories will not be relate-able with our children.

If you can’t download it, they won’t play it.

Enjoy the video!


and in case you didn’t feel old enough lol

The Teal Pumpkin Project.

I have a child with allergies so I am very sensitive to the plight of moms who fight for action on behalf of their children’s allergies.  I am very fortunate that my child’s allergy is not a food allergy and I sympathize with those parents and children who have to monitor very closely what they eat as for some it could really be a life or death situation.

I have encountered some not so nice people when trying to protect my child from his allergens.  He happens to be highly allergic to man’s best friend.  Some people will defend their right to do what they want even if it harms others.  I have certainly seen that with the peanut allergies.  I have seen parents be upset because special provisions had to be made when bringing treats to their child’s school, or they had to adjust their child’s lunch due to allergy restrictions.  I choose to believe that most people who don’t have allergies or a loved one with allergies are only this way due to lack of knowledge.  At least that is my hope.  I hope that by participating in and spread the word on the Teal Pumpkin project we can have a more understanding environment.

Due to the sensitivity of information surrounding allergies the verbage must not be changed, altered, or picked apart.  In other words I have to copy and paste as is.  I hope that you will take the pledge!
