Two That’s the Magic Number (Sundays In MY City)

by Claudya Martinez September 7, 2013
Sisters

Two of a kind. San Francisco, CA. I showed you mine, now show me yours. Share your city/town/suburb/you name it! Think of this as a photography carnival or photography meme (with or without words) that not only lets you share your part of the world, but lets you visit other parts of the world virtually. […]

I Know What a Fox Says, Do You? (Fragmented Fridays)

by Claudya Martinez September 6, 2013

It was a short week and somehow it still managed to kick my butt. Admittedly, that is not hard to do. I mean have you seen the size of my butt? My mother is coming to visit for the weekend in honor of Put Pie’s big 0-5 birthday! My eldest is turning 5. It also […]

There are Totally Shortcuts in Life

There are shortcuts in life

My soon to be 5-year-old has been decoding a message for a couple of days. It’s from one of her activity books and there is a phrase that she has to figure out by turning numbers into corresponding letters. The message is alarmingly religious to her secular parents, but that’s not the point of this […]

It’s Never Too Late To Get New Clothes: Back to School Shopping at Nordstrom Rack

by Claudya Martinez September 2, 2013
New Kids department at SF Nordstrom Rack

I’ve always been a fan of Nordstrom Rack and I’ve certainly dropped a few of my pennies at the San Francisco store located at 555 9th Street, but it would have never occurred to me to go there for back-to-school shopping because as far as I knew there was no kids’ department there. So when […]

I Laugh Even When I’m Grouchy (Fragmented Fridays)

by Claudya Martinez August 30, 2013

Who’s been grouchy? Me! Me! For days my friends, I’ve been a grouch. It will pass and it is due to nothing really worthy of being grouchy, it just is what it is. It’s actually made me stay away from blogging because I don’t want spread the grouch, I’d rather spread cheer. So here’s some […]

Britax Blew My Mind with New Headquarters and New ClickTight Technology

Britaax ClickTight Technology

Last month I had the pleasure of flying to North Carolina to check out the brand spankin’ (not that I believe in spanking) headquarters of Britax, purveyors of phenomenally safe car seats as well as strollers and other children’s accoutrements. The building was awesome and custom made for Britax, I’d show you pictures and all, […]

Matt Damon as Robin

I’m tired you guys and have nothing deep to share. Instead I thought I would just share some social media awesomeness with you. A couple of tweets that tickled my funny bone: I just saw someone by themselves not looking at a phone. Hope they’re ok. — Josh Hara (@yoyoha) August 22, 2013   If […]

Primer Día de Kinder/First Day of Kindergarten

First day of school free printable

She woke up that morning confident and far more chipper than usual, maybe because she had a good night’s sleep or maybe because she had no reason not to be chipper. Her clothes had been picked out the night before, by her of course, and everything was set to go smoothly. And it did, it […]
