4 Ingredient Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Soy-Free Chocolate Cake

My name is Saarah and I am a chocoholic.  Like seriously.  I have to have chocolate once a day.  But it’s from a plant, so it must be healthy, right? There are so many health benefits from cocoa such as decreased cholesterol, improved blood vessel health, high in antioxidants, and much more.  However finding the right chocolate that isn’t just going to clog up your arteries can sometimes be difficult to come by.  Particularly when chocolate can be laced with…

Facebook Messenger’s Hidden Messages!

As if we aren’t already annoyed that Facebook continuously changes the rules for messaging.  First it’s a completely different app – which I’m still getting used to.  And now, those messages that people send you outside your squad… oh that’s right. You don’t know about them because they’re HIDDEN. I found out about them when I’d had a few moms contact me from mom groups.  I personally had thought “what message?” and that mommy brain caught the best of them….

What’s Your Fight Song?

I came across this clip from Ellen, and it really struck a cord with me. Being a person going through some serious postpartum depression/anxiety, sometimes each day can feel like a struggle and a continual uphill battle.   But there are moments in the day that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and its videos like this that truly make me realize what I should be grateful for.   There are so many people with their own…

Since Jimmy Fallon has become a dad, he’s had some pretty amazing spoofs, jokes, pictures, and stories.  One of his challenges he has set out for expecting parents (and even as just a fun game) is “The Whisper Challenge”.  In this game, one person wears noise cancelling headphones, and tries to figure out what the other person is saying.

Keep Your Nose Clean with Oogiebear

Have you ever gone to a playground or a play date and see a child (or two) with a big dry/slimy booger just hanging there; a booger that you would pull out yourself if it were your own kid. Yes, they are gross. BUT, they’re something that happens to the best of us.   I mean, better out than in, right? Or how about when it’s your own child and you’re rushing to get a wipe or something that can fish…

7 Tips to Getting Your Child Sleeping Through the Night Sooner

One thing I wish I could have is a sleep savings account, where you can sleep for days on end before the kids are born. I mean, how great would it be to be able to save up sleep minutes that you can grab from later once the kiddos are born? Well as great as it is to live in dreamland, facing the reality that our bodies just don’t do that, us mommies (and daddies) need some pretty sound advice…
