I need help with my 3.5 year old. About 6 months ago he regressed with potty training and now has no interest in it at all. I’ve tried the naked method, the 3 day method, the “oh crap” method, about 8 different kinds of potties, sticker board offering treats, even tried having him go outside in our backyard, but no dice. I get him on the potty quite often and he sits there, but only goes maybe ... More

I still can’t believe how big my first baby is. #HappyNewYear

Look what Papi brought back from his work trip, where's mine?

Music For Aardvarks SF's Fall semester kicks off next week and there's some room for a few FREE demo classes. Awesome music class for kids 4 months to 5 years. Check it out if you're interested! https://secure.mainstreetsites.com/dmn2931/demos.aspx My oldest has been a student there for almost 2 years and my youngest is just starting to really get into it.

No tears this morning at preschool drop-off!

My oldest currently goes to two schools...one on T & Th and another on W. The W one was his previous daycare and since his new preschool only had 2 days avail, I thought it would be good to have him stay one day there. He loves his old school and always asks for his teacher. Says how much fun he has there. Now the new school he says "scares him" and cries (very hard and long) ever... More

How do you beat crazy high temps? Water play and ice cream! Ice cream from Polly Ann in the Outer Sunset. Mint Oreo is incredible.

My son, the ham.

Everyone knows this place is kid friendly, but I wanted to share some cutie pics of my oldest and a classmate of his. Young friendship is the best.

On our way to my son's first day of preschool today he says, "I can't wait to meet my new friends". My boy is growing up way too fast.

Hello SF friends...make sure to check out this awesome Back to School event at Superga SF this weekend! Music for Aardvarks - SF Bay Area will be performing at 3p on Sunday (8/20) and there will be Sensible Sitters LLC on hand to help watch the kiddos while you shop. 😀 https://www.facebook.com/events/XXX-XXXX470227??ti=ia

So my little baby isn't so little anymore. And my big baby is HUGE! 😢

Great fenced in space for kids, but not really good for non walkers. Changing tables in the bathrooms and usually street parking.

Hello San Francisco folks! Wanted to spread the word about a fun upcoming Back to School event at Superga on Fillmore. It's Sunday, 8/20 10a-5p and they'll have food, drinks, loads of discount and entertainment at 11a (Alphabet Rockers) and 3p (Music for Aardvarks SF). Don't miss it!

Loads of food trucks, clean bathrooms and a great view. Bring a blanket, umbrella and just enjoy the sunshine. Bonus...lots of space for a toddler to run!

First time visit, but will defintaely be back. Great food, coffee selection and loved the dining room atmosphere. No kid menu at brunch, but I ordered mine the burger and he loved it. Here's a pic of him double fisting...water and milk, his favorite..

Looking to get my 3 year old a bunk bed (won't access the top for a while) because we're moving his younger brother into the crib within the next month. I like the look of ones at Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn, but hoping to get some recs from mamas currently using one with their kiddos. TIA!

Super fun playground next to Bed, Bath and Beyond. My oldest had a blast.

5 months flew by. My boys are the best.

Wanted to spread the good word about Music for Aardvarks - SF Bay Area! Summer session is going on, but you can book a FREE trial class to check them out. My boys and I love the Friday 1030a class in the Haight. Aardvark classes are full of instruments, dancing, so much singing and songs you'll be humming all the way home.

If you're expecting or have an infant...highly recommend a dockatot. We've used ours for several hotel stays and it's been awesome! It fits in our suitcase and super easy to travel with.

After a fun pool day...nothing like a little Daniel Tiger.

When you're on vacation in Mexico...one must eat at least one chocolate covered marshmallow a day. It's the law.

In Cabo with my family and in love with Baja Baby Gear (http://www.bajababygear.com). Renting a baby swing, bottle warmer, changing table/bath tub, and a huge bin of indoor/outdoor toys (age appropriate for both kids). Really making it a lot easier for me. They also deliver/pick up at your hotel. Highly recommend!

Question...would you feel comfortable leaving your 4 month old with a sitter (as well as with his 3 year old brother and a 4 year old friend) while vacationing in Cabo? I do have plans to have a sitter help me 3 days by the pool, as well as watch the kiddos one night when we eat at the hotel. I just don't feel good about leaving him at the hotel for hours when we head into the city for di... More

Heading to Cabo on Saturday and looking for kid friendly things to do. Will have a 4 year old, 3 year old, 1 year old and 4 month old. We're staying at an all inclusive, but plan to hang in the city, at least, 2 days. Also have sitters already on call for the whole week. 😀 Any must sees??

Took the family to Six Flags yesterday. First visit for us and I have mixed feelings. A few good things...lots of fun carnival games where it's super easy to win a prize and a bunch of kiddos rides and a large splash area/playground. Bunch of coasters for big kids and the lines didn't seem too bad (30 min wait or less). Not so good...SUPER hot and only a few places have fans (no AC)... More

Someone got a new birthday outfit from his grandpa. 🎉

We just love going to the Zoo. It's such a fun place with something for all ages. My infant enjoyed snoozing in his stroller, as my toddler ran around having a blast...only stopping to have a hot dog.

And just like that...I have a 4 month old (again).

I swear our pup is having a great time. 🙂

This is a great place to check out if you want a higher quality meal with little hassle at Fisherman's Wharf. Also pretty kid friendly...great kid menu, crayon & coloring page, changing table and high chairs. The large wine/drink menu doesn't hurt either. 🙂 The view is a nice bonus too.
