We are BACK!!! Capitol Moms Dallas Launches on July 1.

If you notice the blog dates, you already know that there has been a serious lag in blog posts from Capitol Moms

Chalk that up to life throwing us a curve ball and making the game just a little different than before, but isn't that the constant state of motherhood -- one adventure after another, filled with memories, experiences and take worthy lessons.  As time progresses, I'll share some of the journey and others you'll figure out along the way, but for now, I happily look forward to the re-launch coming July 1, 2012. 


In the meantime, you can check out where I've been -  online as Dallas City Editor at Miss A - Dallas and on my personal blog at Happiest of Adventures

Rockabye Baby: Lullabies with an edge

A couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of reviewing the latest from celeb-favorite Rockabye Baby, a series of lullabies based on rock legends like U2, Green Day, Queen and the upcoming Aerosmith.

I have to admit, at first I was a little leary, rock lullabies. Ok, it was fantastic. You hear the strains of "We are the Champions" and you find yourself humming along as the short people are falling to sleep (and to get ready to in the morning at my house too).

We sent a couple of copies out to mommas to review and heard equally fabulous commentary, "Dear Hubby thinks this rocks!", "Can we get another?" "What a good idea! We listen just about every night."

NYT Article about Picky Lunch Eaters

My mom sent me this article about a solution for picky lunch eaters. I know first hand how aggravating it is try to figure out what will make the perfect connection between lunch box and kiddie tummy.

I am still trying to figure it out. Here's a Times solution.

Rainy Day Activity: Sorting the Memories with MomAgenda's

When I was at home just after giving birth to my daughter, her Grandmother gave her a really sweet present a book of memories of her father from his first steps until his slight cocky-a bit awkward high school graduation. It started me thinking about recording memories, which I am horrible at. I have a great big box of pictures and little memorablia, ticket stubs and notes that I intend to scrapbook one day.

So when I received momAgenda's School Years Organizer, I was thrilled. It is a beautiful, simple way to organize and not miss a memory and create a great gift that you can prepare for the future and have for memories-sake. It's super easy with pockets, prompts and slots for pictures, thoughts and report cards. It looks beautiful and makes it easy.

DLL Rainwear: making the monsoon so adorable,,,,

Ok, so today the monsoon hit DC this afternoon. As I type, I am watching the lightening show from my Arlington window. Gorgeous, and as I think about the crocks that need to be mud-stripped -- I wish I had ordered our DLL Rainwear -- the adorable penguin umbrella and matching raincoat -- earlier in the week.

Check this out. Adorable. Unique Raingear. I can see my Zenora strutting down the mall with her little penguin guiding the way.

CM Favorite: Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Baby Blossom Surface and Freshening Sprays

It's summer and I've taken it upon myself to do a little really, late "Spring" Cleaning, but with a 3 year old and a 1 year old, who wants all those nasty smelling chemicals to do a job that you probably don't want to do anyway.

Then when strolling the local Whole Foods, I stumbled upon Mrs. Meyers Baby Blossom Surface Spray and Freshening Spray.

Two words: LOVE THEM!

I dumped out the block bin, found some crazy stuff inside and then sprayed everything down. I loved the smell, the way that random crayon marks seemed to disappear and how easy it was. The freshening spray has become a great light linen spray and just a little spray does it.
