mommyshorts Just a little clip of Mazzy ice skating from our new video with @gymboree. Full video on the blog plus you can shop her look using code MOMMYSHORTS for $25 off any $100 purchase (link in profile). 1d
  •   my_greyeyes Aw, that smile at the end :) 1d
  •   pam_tenaglia They still make the double blades? 1d
  •   tesskayy Cute!!!! 1d
  •   peekaboopottysticker Great stuff! I say beginners shouldn't use the walker to learn to skate. The walker encourages kids lean forward, when the key to skating is staying upright and maintaining balance. Enjoy ice skating season. My boys LOOOOVE it! 20h
  •   naysaaaylett She's soo adorable!! 18h

mommyshorts Speaking of #momskillz, did I ever tell you I made this cake? Well, I didn't bake the actual cake. I bought a plain white cake and spent all night decorating it to look like a carousel for Harlow's birthday. I don't know what came over me except a friend bought me my first glue gun. I used a paper towel holder, straws, pom poms, wrapping paper, ribbon, plastic animals, m&m's, and a kabob skewer sticking up the middle to keep the top balanced. I felt like MacGyver! 40 more moms showing off their awesome #momskillz on the blog today. You can still enter to win an iPad Mini and a @mycharge HUB! Photo taken by @karilynphoto. 2d

mommyshorts Last night, after Harlow brushed her teeth, I told her to go to her room and pick out a book. Instead, she ran into the living room, grabbed my phone and started playing with it behind the couch. I said, "Harlow, what are you doing?" And I swear, this was her exact response, "Nothing. Don't worry about it." **gasp** I am ONTO YOU, @insta2yearold! 3d
  •   gardenofmyheart Hahaha! If you ask my almost 2 year old son to do anything he says "no, I'm busy!" 2d
  •   carynmwells My daughter turns into Greta Garbo: "I just want to be alone, Mummy. You go 'way." 2d
  •   anniehawker My 20 moz old just says, "bye!!" And waves when she wants to be left alone. / ouch!! 2d
  •   rodreen Lol! At Kohls last night and I told my boys let's go and my 3 yr old yells to me, "Mom! I just wanna buy 'sumting'" 2d
  •   emclemons317 I don't remember what mischief my 16 month old was up to the other day, but when daddy asked what happened, she pointed at the dog and said "Terry." I'm sure 'nothing' and 'don't worry about it' aren't far behind. 2d
  •   rockmom2 Our Berlin turned 2 at the end of September and she is nuts about the cell phones! Always trying to nab it! Must be the age and they are so quick to respond about it too! 2d
  •   begleyj This is awesome! Reminds me of the video of the girl trying to do her seat belt on her own and telling her dad to "worry about yourself". 2d

mommyshorts FYI- if you celebrate your kid's second birthday a week prior to her real birthday and think because she's only two, she won't expect much on the actual day--- you will be wrong. Very very wrong. How I improvised on the blog today plus a promo code and a giveaway for that awesome Birthday Poster from @stickybellies (link in profile). 6d

mommyshorts Harlow's teacher told me that Harlow seems to be afraid of the music teacher or the guitar. She gets upset every time he comes in the class. When Mazzy found out, she ran to get her guitar so she could "play it softly and get Harlow used to the noise". Like Mazzy knows anything about making soothing sounds on a guitar! Still. It was the sweetest thing. 1w

mommyshorts @ladidakids is looking for their next lookbook cover model and asked me to be a judge. Which is awesome except that means I can't enter Mazzy! Wouldn't she make an excellent cover? Go to @ladidakids to find out all the rules. #ladidamodelsearch2 1w
