Playing Tourist in Our Own City with Wheel Fun Rentals

This post is in partnership with Wheel Fun Rentals.   We recently took advantage of free childcare (aka grandparents in town!) to go on a rare day date. We moved to San Francisco one year ago, but we haven’t had the chance to do many touristy things since our twins were born shortly after we […]

I’m Not Crafty, But I’m Making a Summertime Scrapbook, Anyway

How I Get My Kids to Eat (More Than) Their Fair Share of Veggies

So you have a new baby, and while you expected there to be a period of recovery while your body heals from the birth (or just from the sheer exhaustion of those early days), you probably didn’t expect your wrists to hurt so darn much.

Why Your Definition of a “Good School” Should Influence Where You Live

This post is in partnership with Suburban Jungle. I started to freak out about the San Francisco kindergarten admissions process last fall.
