Imagine a world where pregnant women are always upbeat and glowing, newborns sleep on cue, toddlers love to have their teeth brushed, and teenagers gaze adoringly at their parents. Impossible, you say? Not according to advertisers who flood the web with stock photos of perfect parents and children. They’d have you believe that parenting is a piece of cake, and every significant moment of family life takes place on a spotless white couch.

So when Sara Given, a real mother of a real toddler, saw a picture of a radiant new mother in a cute little sundress breastfeeding her newborn in the middle of a golf course, she finally had enough. She launched a Tumblr, which is now visited by tens of thousands of new parents looking for a daily pick-me-up.

Because what better way is there to deal with the stress and strain of being a new parent than laughter? The perfect gift of cheer and solidarity, Parenting Is Easy exploits the disconnect between these preposterous photos and what happens in real life, and makes every reader laugh out loud—and feel better, too, because we’re in on the joke.

This is a prompted journal that a parent can fill out to have a complete childhood history for their child. It covers from when the mother is pregnant, until the child is 18 years old. Each phase and year of the child's life has custom tailored prompts to ensure quick but meaningful recording for the parent.

When founder and creator, Jayne Swallow had her first daughter, she could not find any journal system that she liked for documenting her daughter's life. She started writing her own journal, but she realized that one day, this journal would really be for her daughter. So, she wanted it to be clean, nice and organized. It got to be too time consuming. She next tried a mobile app which she used sporadically, then started putting everything on Instagram, but she had too much she wanted to put down. Does any of this sound familiar? Feeling as though she has already forgotten so much, and knew she would regret it one day if she didn't figure out a solution. Then, with her second baby on the way, she knew she was running out of time to figure it out. In order for her to commit, she wanted a system that was doable - that she could start and finish completely. And not just with her first child, but for however many kids she had. A journal that was efficient but would record enough of the good details she never wants to forget. She also wanted it ALL in 1 place. And thus, Promptly Journals was born.

The PeriCoach System takes the guesswork out of pelvic floor muscle training. Pelvic floor muscles are muscles like in any other part of the body. Exercising them properly restores tone and strength. PeriCoach helps with the training itself, provides real-time feedback that is beamed to a smartphone so you can view your progress. PeriCoach is also the first system to document your results over time so they can be shared with a clinician or pelvic health physiotherapist.

PeriCoach combines a pelvic floor training sensor, that you insert and squeeze against, with an app on your smartphone (Android or iOS). It provides guidance through your training session and monitors your progress. The PeriCoach training device contains 3 biofeedback sensors. Once inserted, you squeeze against the device and the sensors detect the contractions of the pelvic floor muscles sending an immediate report to your smartphone via Bluetooth. It provides a constant flow of information to show your progress, allowing you to to see and document your results.

Seeing the results and, over time, feeling the difference in the strength of the pelvic floor muscles is very gratifying. Restoring strength to pelvic floor muscles is not only associated with treatment of UI, but clinical evidence suggests this may also improve intimacy.

Sometimes waiting is good, sometimes bad. When you are pregnant, waiting gets a completely new meaning. It is the most amazing time and the next moment it’s the hardest time. One moment you feel beautiful and elegant as ever before and the next moment you can sleep for a million years and you don’t even understand the meaning of elegance anymore.

During Mie Frey's own "waiting" she captured the beauty, elegance and exhaustion in her series, "Waiting". The print includes 15 moments pregnant women will experience. Each "moment" can also be purchased as a single print.

Shipped in a protective envelope. Frame not included.

Classic silhouettes are a sweet way to add sentiment and color to your wall decor whether it be in the living room or a child's bedroom. They make a wonderful heirloom.

A Family Print Shop meticulously creates these on the computer using the picture of the person's profile. TheyI prefer to give their silhouette's a more natural appearance and less of a "cartoon" look. Therefore, they don't completely smooth the hair but rather delicately and patiently refine and illustrate the area, all the while leaving it looking realistic.

Paper Weight: 120 lb crisp white cover stock in matte. Dimensions: 8 x 10 inches. No Frame Included. After receiving and approving the proof, it will ship within 3-5 business days.
