Choco Honey Banana Peanut Butter CakeI'm not kidding, this is one of the best cakes I've ever tasted hands down. Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Crepe Cake: Imagine this, chocolate cake that has layers of crepe inside topped with a honey peanut butter frosting and fresh bananas. I am completely in love with this sinful cake and am dying to share it with my Mom. Her and I have the same sweet tooth and I know she is just going to have a "savor each spoonful" type of moment when she has it for the first time, I can almost picture her face. I'll wait till Mother's Day to surprise her with it as soon as the sun rises…maybe even a coffee and cake breakfast in bed, it is made with crepes afterall. Enjoy!

hemangiomaI recently read a post by a mom who wrote about getting her toddler daughter plastic surgery. The headline grabbed me so I was curious to see just what kind of surgery it was. I live in Los Angeles, so I thought "it's finally happened - some crazy parent got her baby a nose job." But when I saw the surgery was to remove a hemangioma, I was 100% in favor of this mom's decision.Read More »from Skin Deep: When is it Okay for a Child to Get Plastic Surgery?
A hemangioma is (to put it simply) a blood vessel tumor. They usually appear on babies within weeks of birth and tend to resolve on their own - but it can sometimes take ten years for one to go away completely. Females are three to five times more likely to develop them, and 80% of hemangiomas are located on the face or neck. They are very scary-looking but they are technically benign (although a hemangioma on an internal organ can lead to a multitude of complications). I say technically because, quite frankly, they are ugly and since they are often located in extremely visible areas, they can lead to

twin boysRecently a post appeared on Babble, written by an anonymous father, about how fearful he and his wife are about having twins. He refers to having twins as a "nightmare." He writes that he and his wife, who conceived the twins through in vitro fertilization after struggling with infertility, are "pissed. And terrified, and angry, and guilty, and regretful."Read More »from Double the Fun: 7 Pieces of Advice for Parents Expecting Twins
The couple already have a son, so they feel like they know what they're in for, and it's not pretty:
"Our fear is not the new parent fear of the unknown. It's the smart, informed fear of the known. Our biggest nightmare is that we'll have colic again, or double colic. This time around, we're counting down - not like expected parents but like cancer patients with only months to live. Enjoy life while you can, for soon it's double the diapers, double the feedings. Half of zero sleep is … less than zero?
"So tell me how this isn't going to suck. (Did I mention we live in a one-bedroom apartment?)"
I have twins. As a member of my

Married couples without kids don't get it.
My best friend is married, no kids. He moved in to his childhood neighborhood, across from his old school which is now closed. It sits empty because too many empty nesters sucked the demand dry. Meanwhile, the edges of our city have kids being bused as schools are bursting at the seams.
If you don't want to have kids, get out of neighborhoods with schools. Move downtown, or to a chic restaurant district where you need half the space and your "no curfew" lifestyle won't be cramped by strollers on the streets.
Another colleague moved to the burbs and lamented the lack of social scene. She and her husband live in a 4 bedroom 3000 sq ft home. It's just the 2 of them, yet she was perplexed why she couldn't meet anyone who didn't have any kids complaining that she was "feeling especially isolated, out in these-here burbs". That will happen when you moved into a subdivision sans kids.
When you're a couple and you make the choiceRead More »from Get Outta the 'burbs! My Problem with Married Couples Without Kids

I am so thrilled! I have a little garden plot for the spring/summer! Right now it's a tangled mess but I have big dreams. The plot gets some sun and some shade, so I have been looking for flowers and veggies that will tolerate those conditions. I want to grow a cottage garden, which is a garden mixed with flowers, veggies, herbs and and basically everything! Here are some of the seeds I want to plant. Do you have a garden with some shade? What do you like to grow? - By Chelsea Fuss

Meet Naki'oMeet Naki'o the Bionic Dog who has been making headlines around the world.
This beautiful mix-breed dog was not given the best start to life when we was found abandoned in a foreclosed house in Nebraska. He was discovered in a frozen puddle in the cellar and was brought to an animal shelter.
Due to frostbite, Naki'o lost all four paws and the tip of his tail. As you could imagine, learning to walk again was a bit of a struggle.

Since that day, Naki'o was adopted into a new family who cares for him. On top of that, thanks to the generosity of a Denver company called 'Orthopets' which specializes in pet prosthetics, Naki'o the Bionic Dog has been fitted with two more prosthetics for his front legs.
He's full of life, happy as can be and even though he's got 4 prosthetic paws, he can run with the best of them! Check out this news story that features Naki'o and I have a feeling you'll fall in love with him as quickly as I have.

When my husband and I first started talking about having kids, I'm not going to lie, but I freaked out a little. I was 28 years old, and for some reason I just had a number in my head-that number was 30. I wanted to be 30 when I had my first child. Yes, I know, I wasn't too far off. Between the time spent being pregnant, I would have been 29 when my baby was born. But not being 30 made me uneasy. I spent hours searching the internet looking up the topic "what is the right age to have a baby." It was as though I was looking for an affirmation, an article that would tell me "It's okay Carmen to have a baby at 29." I had been married for six years, was financially stable and was settled in my career-what else was I waiting for? I soon learned there really is no right or wrong age to have a baby. Sometimes in fact, you're never REALLY ready. As a new mom (at the age of 29) I couldn't be happier. I interviewed six amazing moms, who became moms for the first time ranging from their 20′s,Read More »from 41 and Pregnant: 6 Moms Weigh in on the "Right" Age to Have Kids
