OUR FIRST YEAR WITH FELICITY

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. I considered myself a messy person for most of my life.  I’ve had times when I couldn’t even see the floor in my bedroom for over two months.  And, yes, it has always driven my husband insane.  But I realized very quickly that my messiness before my…

PURE LOVE

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central.  I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. Those of you who are avid Tall Mom readers know how tough my son was on Tall Dad and I. Between the colic, early morning/ late night/ all day screaming sessions, and the subsequent postpartum depression I suffered from, Rhys gave us a good run for our money.  The only thing that would calm him down, and…

RHODE ISLAND ROAD TRIPS: EAST PROVIDENCE TO BRISTOL

Today’s post about one of my favorite scenic road trips in Rhode Island has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are, as always mine alone.  #RoadTripOil #CollectiveBias Being a stay at home/work mom means that I, obviously, spend a lot of time at home. Somedays I feel like the soundtrack of my life should begin with Etta James singing Don’t Get Around Much Anymore. But when cabin fever strikes, or my kids are having a…

BABY GEAR: BABY’S JOURNEY SMART SYNC MONITOR REVIEW

This post was sponsored by Baby’s Journey as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.  I received complimentary merchandise to facilitate my review. Right now, my husband and I are severely sleep deprived. My darling little lass, who is just shy of 11 months, has been teething for what feels like months on end.

HOW TO COMBAT DIAPER RASH CAUSED BY ANTIBIOTICS

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Weleda. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. We’ve had a rough week in the Larsen household. For some reason, my little lad, who is two weeks shy of three years old, has decided to bite his baby sister – twice. I don’t think he did it to be mean or malicious, and to be fair, my…

DENTAL CARE TIPS FOR INFANTS AND TODDLERS

My eight month old baby is the sweetest little thing. Her bright blue eyes sparkle each time I enter the room, and she is an absolute ham for the camera. Our infant adores her older brother, and is wants to play with whatever toy interests him. She eats all sorts of foods by this point (with meatballs being one of her favorites) and is getting better about sleeping through the night.  My baby also has a lucky tooth… A lucky…

My Maternity Photo Session: Pregnancy Pictures with Agroterra Photography

A Zebra. A big, huge, horizontally striped zebra. That’s exactly what I felt like recently at a friends wedding. I was seven months pregnant, had gained some weight, and stupidly fell into the trap of wearing horizontal stripes while being pregnant. (Why?!?! Why make us pregnant women look larger than we already are?) I hid from the photographer and videographer as much as I could, but found one photo of me from behind, and I was mortified. I wanted to…

The Best Baby and Toddler Friendly Places in Rhode Island – Morris Ave Tot Lot – Providence

Snuggled within Morris Avenue on the East Side of Providence is a precious and perfect little playground specifically aimed at babies and toddlers. The toddler park on Morris Ave seems to have been an extra house lot the city may have taken over and filled with mulch and fenced in. It is not large, but I actually like that about it. Unlike its larger playground neighbor, the Glady’s Potter Garden, the Morris Ave tot lot is cute and compact –…

Memorial Hospital: The Little Hospital That Could

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the Cigna Foundation, in partnership with Samahope.  I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. There is a place in Pawtucket, RI – a magical place.  Place where dreams are made and life is created.  But not a lot of people know about it. In fact, when I say the name – people often look at me with a crooked eye and say, “what’s that?”…
