Q: I am a part time esthetician, and go to client’s homes to give manicures and pedicures. No artificials are used, so the fumes are straight from the regular nail polish bottles. Now that. I am trying to get pregnant, I am wondering if I should stop doing my house calls till all is said and done, or is it ok that I continue doing mani’s and pedi’s throughout my pregnancy?
This ham is both simple and elegant, and the leftovers are something to celebrate, too. A honey-glazed ham makes an unbelievable Sunday dinner and is equally special during the Easter or Christmas holidays. Our family always had ham, albeit with my Mom’s British heritage, the flavours weren’t as complex. She would serve it with a potato scallop and green beans and my mouth would water. With this easy recipe, you could also throw in an Asian influence with the addition of soy sauce, and serve with bok choi and noodles.
Cloth diapers are making a comeback. I used them with both of my kids and didn’t even have a service! Diaper rash was almost non-existant, as were blowouts. Thank the diaper gods for that..

We have some cloth diapering basics to help you make a good decision.
I’m so in love. The 50 shades of blue (you thought I was going to say grey, didn’t you?) of the water, the white sand and above all the service. Where? Beaches Turks and Caicos.

If you have a friend that’s expecting twins or triplets, it can make for a difficult baby shower; when should it be, what should the theme be and how do you even go about getting presents for multiple babies? As difficult as it may seem, throwing a shower for twins or triplets isn’t much different than throwing a shower for one baby—unfortunately, that isn’t true for the labor part. Here are our twin baby shower ideas.
When Should You Hold A Twin Baby Shower?
Women expecting multiple babies generally give birth at around 36 or 37 weeks, and often much earlier. But it is much earlier than 36 weeks that women carrying more than one baby begin to feel extremely hormonal, tired and sluggish—the shower should be well before this time, obviously so that the mom can enjoy her shower and have fun.
Also, women carrying more babies are more physically progressed in their pregnancy than women carrying only one baby so the longer you wait to throw a shower, the higher the odds the mom-to-be will go into labor or be put on bed rest. To be safe, err on the side of caution and plan a twin baby shower for some time between 28 and 32 weeks.
How To Pick A Theme For A Twin Baby Shower
Baby showers have such cute themes and with online stores, you can get baby shower paraphernalia for any situation and any theme. If you’re having trouble getting creative, think of things of two that are usually referenced or spoken together. If you know the sexes of the babies, that makes it easier, but if the theme says “twins,” it will be cute no matter the sexes of the babies. Some themes for girl/boy babies twin baby shower could be: Mickey and Minnie, tiaras and crowns or bees and flowers.
Ideas for multiple girl babies: stripes and dots, flowers and stripes, sugar and spice or pickles and ice cream—this one has the bonus of being two fabulous colors plus is a stereotypical pregnancy craving. Shower themes for two boy babies could be: sports or snails and puppy dog tails. You can even get creative with the food!
What Type of Gift To Buy For Twins
Obviously, having a twin baby shower means that you can’t only give one blanket and a onesie as the parents to be will need multiple sets of everything. For shower gifts for multiple babies, you and the guests may have to get creative with the gifts. People could pool money and get a twin or triplet stroller or give themed baskets of bath-time stuff, bed-time stuff or health care stuff. Alternatively, if the family is set up with everything they will need for the baby, try to have a shower that is a baking party and have people buy and make food to stockpile in the family’s fridge and freezer, or do a diaper drive.
Even if a family has all the things they will need for a baby, they will never have enough diapers for multiple babies. You could also do a shower that is only about mom and dad. Have someone give them the promise of child care when everyone has settled in and have someone else give them a dinner out or a half day at the spa.
Planning a shower, no matter the amount of babies, should be fun and a last chance to shower the parents-to-be with gifts, support and love before they welcome their new addition. Whatever you decide to do for gifts, theme or time, ensure it is something the family will be comfortable with and appreciate for their special twin baby shower. Enjoy!
