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 […]

The words we will NEVER use

My husband and I have two daughters. One is 14 and the other is 9 weeks old. The thing is, I only gave birth to one of them. Yes, you read that right. I only gave birth to one, but my husband, he is “biological” father to both….however I’m not a stepmom and I don’t […]

We also need new Dory, Minnie and Skye […]

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 […]

‘Tis the Season…for Accidents

‘Tis the season…for accidents. If your holidays are anything like mine, you’ll agree that this time of year is an accident waiting to happen! Ladders are pulled from storage to hang twinkling lights, tempting breakable ornaments are hung from trees just inches away from our inquisitive toddlers, and a plethora of flickering candles scented of cinnamon apple permeates […]
