Congratulations to James Nipper, winner of The CAN Challenge!
August 24, 2012 2:03 pm | by

James Nipper of Knoxville, Tenn. was the winner with the fastest time of 0.59 seconds. James was very dedicated to his training. After attending the launch event at Fluff n’ Stuff, James went back several times each week to improve his technique and time. He was a man with a mission. But what really touched us about James’ story was what happened before The CAN Challenge ever began. James is an army veteran, having served in Iraq, where his unit was hit by a roadside bomb. James is now medically retired from the U.S. Army due to injuries received during

When Mom’s Away
August 15, 2012 1:40 pm | by

So this week I will leave behind my baby and big kid with my big husband and flew away to New York City for five glorious and exhausting days. However, I’m convinced that the five days leading up to leaving may be more exhausting than the five days I actually spend in New York. (That city makes me SO TIRED.) My husband works full time and I know he doesn’t have time to cook, clean, organize and run the house the way I do, not because he’s incapable, but because he’s gone 9 hours a day and doesn’t witness how

I’ll be traveling this week to New York City for the annual BlogHer blogging conference – without my kids! I am so excited about this chance to meet with so many of my wonderful internet friends*, and to be encouraged by all the sessions and speakers. While I’m away, my husband and in-laws will be taking turns caring for the kids, currently 2.5 years old and 17 months. You might wonder, are you worried that things will fall apart while you’re gone? What if the discipline slips? No, I don’t really worry about those things. Here is part of the

My Husband, the Daddy
June 21, 2012 12:42 pm | by

Editor’s note: This blog post was written and intended to be published in time for Father’s Day. However, the newest addition to Jessica’s family had other plans in mind, which required some last minute edits. We’re happy to announce the arrival of another little one into the Cotton Babies family and hope you enjoy this piece, despite it’s slightly late arrival. The first baby my husband ever held was my nephew, for probably 3 minutes before handing him back to me. Fast forward 19 months, and the next baby he held was our daughter. I remember him asking me when

Separation Anxiety
June 13, 2012 1:31 pm | by

Editor’s note: the following blog is meant to share perspective regarding one mom’s experience and inner feelings when dealing with separation anxiety. This content is in no way intended to be instructions of how every family should deal with this situation. In the world of parenting, there are few phrases more frightening than “separation anxiety.” Frightening, because everyone has an opinion on how it should be handled. Frightening, because grandparents and other well-meaning experienced parents have tips on how they dealt with it. But mostly frightening, because outside of junior high romance, few things in life leave you questioning your
