Going through a divorce is difficult, painful and stressful but even more so for your children. Preparing in advance can assist the children in going through this transitional period.

Stumbling Toward the Last Day of School

Today I was taunted by a box of tissues. Not even Kleenex, mind you,  but generic Target up & up™ brand tissues. The tissues sit in a bin in our utility room next to a disgustingly dirty backpack and mock me by representing the memory of “enthusiastic August mom” while laughing at “stumbling toward the last day of school May mom.” […]

Camp SAHM : My Plan for Summer

I used to spend the month of May dreading the upcoming summer “holidays”. I treated summer as if I was going into battle…entering survival mode, but this year I am making a plan for Camp SAHM and am hoping to enjoy myself more!

Smooth Sailing: Why a Disney Cruise is the EASIEST Vacation for Families

As Central Florida moms, we have a little thing in our backyard called the Walt Disney World Resort.

People save their whole lives to come vacation here. […]

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, […]

Their Space

  I’m conflicted about the state of my daughters’ bedrooms. They are thirteen and their rooms are a perpetual state of mess. One occasionally gets tired of her own mess and picks up. Her twin does not. I have always been a little OCD. Well, OK, maybe a lot. As a child my bedroom was […]

Parting is such sweet sorrow? Perhaps not when it comes to toddler friendships

There are many articles on how to leave your toddler with the babysitter/daycare/camp etc. without incurring a meltdown. Do you sneak out? Or, do you acknowledge their fears? Perhaps you sing a goodbye song? (Our favorite, Grown-Ups Come Back by Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood). However, I’d like to take a moment to appreciate the way toddlers greet […]
