Valentine’s Day: Prep Day 4 – Gift for the Kids

Kids are usual pretty easy on Valentine’s day – a stuffed animal (perhaps with the year) and some candy that they normally don’t get to eat and you’re done right? Nope. These kids are wanting more so here are some ideas.

For the babies…
Pajamas – every baby store sells something with a heart – its cute and fun (or funny). Take some photos all dressed up, so you can embarrass them in years to come. ...  [ read more ]

Valentine’s Day: Prep Day 3 – Gift for the Wives

My wife is an amazing woman, she cleans, she cooks, she takes care of our son, she is starting her own business – Suzanne Cohen Photography [Link] and once in a while she takes care of me (I’m joking all the time!).  My feeling about buying gifts for my wife is only the best of whatever she wants.  Here is a list of items that I’ve either given to her with great success or that she’s been asking for (she’s got great taste and can really trend too). ...  [ read more ]

Valentine’s Day: Prep Day 2 – Candy is a must

I’m not sure about you but Candy is a must have on Valentine’s day. Seriously, If my wife doesn’t get an unhealthy amount of chocolate someone is going to get it (and by that I mean death and by someone I mean me).

The historical chocolate in the heart can be found at any drug store in America.  Yes, its lame in a kind of cheesy way its so over done way. ...  [ read more ]

WIN an Autographed CD [Raffle rules below the videos] CLOSED

Laurie Berkner is awesome at Kiddie Rock! If you haven’t seen Nick Jr.’s Jack’s Big Music Show then you may or may not know Laurie’s music (and if you don’t I highly suggest you get to know it fast!).  The music has been playing since Marc was 2 months old in the background and at somepoint he started dancing to it and has been ever since. ...  [ read more ]

Rock-a-bye Baby – Sweet Dreams and Goodnight

I don’t want anyone to think I’m an expert on this topic at all… so consider yourself warned.

When Marc was first home from the hospital, I didn’t think too much of the first night or two. I was used to not getting much sleep but this getting up every three hours wasn’t fun.  After a week I started to think my ears were about to bleed and about a week after that I’m pretty sure I was sleep walking in and out of meetings at work.  I was drained but in some crazy way I started to get used to it. ...  [ read more ]

Bathy Bath time!

One of the best times of the day for me is bath time, but its not my bath time it’s Marc’s bath time.  It’s a true bonding time for us.  Marc wasnt always in love with the Bath, he was actually kind of hating it. My wife and I worked at it for about a week before I started to get half undressed and stand in the bath and start to splash him in the tub.  Soon enough he was having a ball and now he just sits in the tub and just plays for 20 or so minutes. ...  [ read more ]
