35 things for your Tween’s Easter Basket

  I love assembling Easter baskets. It’s been a family tradition since the girls were babies. Holiday traditions naturally evolve as the years pass. This is the third Easter that we’ve had non-bunny-believers, a fact that I’ve managed to completely ignore for the last two Easters.   Recently my girls and I were in Target. While they looked at clothes, […]

Obsessed with Milestones

​ Do you obsess about milestones and when your child should be doing something? As a mom of two teens, I’d like to offer this advice to moms of littles. Stop. Stop worrying. Don’t compare your own child’s “firsts” to your friends’ children. Don’t obsess over books that suggest when your child should roll over, sit […]

Sing it, Mamas!

On a recent family day out to a local theme park that specializes in animals, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised to find that while the kids loved seeing all the animals in the “wild,” that wasn’t what enamored them the most. They loved the street party held in the early evening that included […]

Scaling Back Kids’ Activities

Growing up I had a close friend who swam competitively. She and her four brothers all swam on the same team. At the time, I felt sorry for her because she wasn’t allowed to choose her own sport or activity. Now as an adult looking back, I think her mother was brilliant. Five kids and only one activity at […]

Remember the Magic of Christmas Lies in Your Heart

  Two years ago we eked through our last year believing in Santa. Our girls were in 5th grade and had turned 11 that November, and while they doubted Santa’s existence, they weren’t sure. I overheard them talking to each other Christmas week, “Let’s sleep on the couch on Christmas Eve because that way we’ll know.” They didn’t sleep on […]

Holiday Survival Guide 2016

I love turkey dinner with all the fixings, tinsel, Home Alone, fake snow and holiday music as much as the next person, but unfortunately life doesn’t always imitate art. For many people, especially families with school aged or younger children, the holidays can resemble more National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation than It’s a Wonderful Life. This […]
