I recently took Chase to the movie theater for his first movie. Overall, he did a great job, especially considering that he’s only two years old. I learned a few things and I thought I’d share them with you. Here are some tips that you may find helpful for when you take your child to their first movie.
1. Arrive late. Yes, you heard me correctly! Don’t go into the theater until after the previews have ended. If you want to make it easy, just ask the theater how long the previews last. They should be able to tell you. Little ones can only sit for so long and skipping the previews is a good way to cut some time off.

We purchased the Baby Jogger City GO infant car seat along with the City Select stroller when we had our daughter 8 months ago. We purchased bases for both my car and my husband’s truck. We did this so that we could easily transfer her from one vehicle to the other. My husband was able to install both of them quite easily.

What was I looking for? My number one [...]
My husband and I have always been over-achievers and the known planners in our circle of friends. Prior to our sweet babe’s arrival, we had spreadsheets comparing brands and prices. We made lists of things we had to do to the nursery or purchase before our little bundle of joy joined us. Yes, the lists were even color coded and each task had a deadline assigned to it.
One of the purchases we were most happy with was the Britax B-Agile 3 and B-Safe 35 travel system. Though the car seat is available for purchase on its own (and it comes with a car base) the price point of the travel system together was unbeatable!
The best advice I ever got for purchasing a [...]
