Harper’s BAZAAR Junior Singapore announces the “Most Loved Baby Care 2014″ and the Joovy Caboose VaryLight wins the “BEST DOUBLE STROLLER”.  

In the July 2014 article, Harper’s BAZAAR says, “Joovy’s Caboose VaryLight stroller is the perfect, do-all family ride.  Designed with an expanding family in mind, the VaryLIght can easily be transformed to fit two kids in comfort.  Easy to navigate, its front wheels’ full suspension support the kid’s weight and keep your journey smooth. The back wheels are strong and sturdy to support the children too.  From stroller setup options to suit all ages from newborns to preschoolers, with a removable tray, full suspension and expandable storage, it’s the ultimate vary-able family stroller.”

Joovy: To begin, how did you get started blogging?  What was the overriding reason you started blogging?
TM:     I started blogging after I had my first son in 2009. I basically
started because I attended a number if prenatal & new parent events where
I was overloaded with lots of great information & introduced to lots of
amazing brands/products. Friends, family and even
strangers would constantly ask me about new products or for
suggestions so I decided up start a blog.

Joovy: How did you come to name your blog?  What significance does this have in your life?
TM: I came up with the name, Thirtymommy, for my blog because I became a mother at 30 years old.

Joovy: How does your blog differ from others?
TM: My blog differs from others because I focus on educational family
friendly events, activities & products  home preschooling as well as the
whole parenting lifestyle.

Joovy:  How do you balance parenting and blogging?  Is there a secret?
TM:   I attempt to balance parenting & blogging by creating calendars with
goals & deadlines in order to keep up with the demands of my blog. Also,
as a stay at home mother, it is important to set aside a block of time to
get “work” done. The secret is to also make time for yourself to relax & recharge.

Joovy:  What is your current computer?
TM:  I am currently using a PINK Sony Vaio as my laptop & my iPad for
blogging.

Joovy:  When you’re not blogging, where do you escape to on the web?
TM:  I escape on Twitter, I love attending & hosting twitter parties!

Joovy:  What’s been your most popular post or topic?
TM:  My most popular topic is usually my home preschooling projects &
activities I create for my boys.

Joovy: How do you involve your kids and family in your blog?
TM:   My blog is all about my kids & family, so they are almost always the
subjects of my posts.

Joovy:  What kind of camera do you use?
TM:  Currently, I solely use the camera on my Nokia 1020 or my iPad. I am
searching for a professional camera and am open to reccomendations.

Joovy:  How do you like to spend active time with your family?  What is your favorite family outing?
TM: I like to spend active time with my family exploring the various New
York City museums. We love a good educational adventure and usually we all learn a few new things from each outing.

Joovy:  What’s the coolest parenting tip you’ve learned from blogging?
TM:  The coolest parenting tip I’ve learned from blogging is that there is
always someone else dealing with a similar parenting dilemma as I am & I
am not alone.

Joovy:  Tell us about your ‘perfect’ day?
TM:    My one reflect day would be spent on a beach searching for seashells, building sand castles with my boys after we gave buried daddy in the sand.

Joovy:  What 5 blogs do you read daily?
TM:  Daily I check out Momtrends, So Family Online, a Brooklyn Active Mama,


Joovy: So, you’re a Joovy Blogger, right?  What’s your favorite thing about
Joovy? 
TM: I love everything about Joovy & Joovy products especially their
whimsical names that sort of show each products personality!

Joovy: Anything else you want to share about you or your blog?
TM: Through blogging, I learned that my oldest son loves cooking & I
created him his own blog called Playground Chefs where he creates his own
recipes & reviews food related products.

The ONLY Bottle My Baby Will Take

See what this mom has to share about her exclusively breastfed baby and
baby bottles, “I have been exclusively breastfeeding from the beginning….and Jaxon has made it clear he doesn’t like bottles.  UNTIL I found the Joovy Boob Baby Bottle.  I hate having to give him a bottle (even though its mommy milk)… but this momma has to go back to work soon!”

10 Ways Motherhood Has Changed Me

This guest post is brought to you by Jenny Schafer, senior editor of HerScoop and Celebrity Baby Scoop!  Jenny is mom of 3 and well, please read on and see if you can relate even slightly to the way motherhood has changed her!

Since welcoming my first child in 2006, it seems I’ve morphed nicely into mommyhood.

I’m not one of those moms that talks about my children non-stop — not that my three kids (aged 3, 5 & 8) aren’t the cutest and most special humans on the planet!

But there is no question that my life has taken on new meaning – and I’ve developed some strange new habits – since becoming a mother.

So let’s take a look at the top 10 ways motherhood has changed me.

10. I am always at the grocery store.

The amount of milk I have purchased in the past eight years is alarming — I should’ve bought shares in our local dairy farm. Not only that, it’s pretty bad when you are always at the supermarket and know the employees by their first name, according to their specific departments. (By the way, what’s with all the hot guys working in the produce section?) Seriously though, sometimes just blasting the tunes while driving to the grocery store – sans kids – is the highlight of my week.

9. I drink copious amounts of coffee (errr, and wine).

I fancy myself a bit of a “mombie” these days. Sadly, the rigors of motherhood cause many of us to de-stress with copious amounts of caffeine during the day, followed by an evening glass of vino. Is this really healthy, amidst our kale smoothies and high-protein diets, fellow mombies?

8. I’d rather get a good night’s sleep than stay out late.

Lord knows I love my GNOs, but these days I’m just as happy to stay home, change into my PJs by 7 p.m., and hit the sack by 9 – 9:30 at the latest. Sexy, I know! As it turns out, motherhood and maintaining everyday life (work, meal prep, cleaning, keeping the marriage strong, and everything else in between) is simply exhausting.

7. My hair is a mess most of the time.

There’s nothing like ‘embracing’ the aging process, eh ladies! Thanks to years of over-processing, my hair is a frizzy mess, making it easier to put back into a ponytail or messy bun most days. Pre-motherhood, I had the best hair on the block. I would simply factor in the time it took to work out the frizz before stepping out in style. Sigh…

6. I sing made-up songs all day long.

As it turns out, I truly am turning into my mother. Whether I’m toasting a bagel, sweeping up the floor, or watching my kids run in the backyard you will hear me belt out an impromptu song about the occasion. Although practically tone deaf, my family has yet to abandon me for this newfound habit.

5. I believe strongly in self-care.

Since welcoming my babies and being faced with the hard work of motherhood, I’ve learned to take care of myself. Although a debated topic by some, I put myself first above the kids and the marriage. While some say I’m being selfish, it’s actually all about self-preservation. While completing my bachelor or social work in my university days, the concept of “self-care” was drilled into our heads. I am putting those valuable lessons into practice now that I’m a mother, with regular exercise, clean eating and at least 5 minutes of meditation every day. Not only that, I’m sure to keep my expectations at a minimum — as it turns out, life is not a Ryan Gosling movie.

4. I realize how difficult it is to make new (& quality) friends.

Is it just me, or is it damn near impossible to find quality friendships these days? I have a dozen BFFs from my childhood and high school, but when it comes to making new mommy friends, I haven’t been so fortunate. With two of my kids in school, you’d think I’d be fighting off the mommy friends with a stick. Not quite, even though I wear the required Luluemon uniform of overpriced yoga pants and uncomfortable hoodies. (I sense another blog/rant on this topic coming your way soon….)

3. I don’t try so hard to be perfect.

Before I became a mother, I was the perfect parent. Truth is, I make mistakes, my house is a mess most of the time, and I always seem to be pissing someone off. And regardless of not being the coolest mommy on the block, my husband and kids think I’m pretty neat — frizzy bun-head and all. While there’s a fine line between letting yourself go and simplifying your look, there’s also a balance between striving to be the ‘perfect’ wife/mother/friend and just trying to do your best. Although I never want to quit learning and reaching for new goals, I’ve stopped trying to please everyone and comparing myself to other women and their seemingly perfect lives.

2. I have a newfound sense of purpose.

Sure I felt somewhat useful prior to welcoming my babies. But since motherhood, I’ve felt a deep sense of purpose and meaning. I really need to stay alive – and healthy – for my three kids. Some people might like reading my articles, and there are those who enjoy my company, but my kids literally need me in every sense.

1. I know the true meaning of unconditional love.

As it turns out, those twangy country music songs had it right all along! There’s nothing quite like the love between a mother and child. If any of my kids were to do unthinkable acts (yes, even the most heinous of crimes), I would still love them without a doubt. While I’ve felt deep love for others, all three of my kids have expanded my heart and my capacity to love in ways I had not known.
