How Disney World won me over for our family getaways

I love to travel. I’ve been to 22 countries, and relish the adventure of exploring new places. My idea of a personal dream vacation includes large mountains, lots of walking, a good stash of books to read and cozy coffee shops for relaxing.        But right now, we have three small children. Two of […]

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. I mean, how lucky are we that we’re all neighbors to the most magical place on Earth, and can practically schedule playdates with friends somewhere on Disney property?! People save their whole lives to come vacation here. […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Words-Matter

Words Matter

Especially to children. Words matter, especially to children. That quote keeps ringing through my head after hearing it during a recent interview between two very high profile women. Sticking my foot in my mouth is a given for me, in almost any circumstance, but especially when I’m nervous, uncomfortable or stressed. I almost always follow […]

Toiletries for Toddlers (and their Stockings)

Yes, we really need more toilet paper already. And while I’m at it, we need bubble gum-flavored children’s toothpaste with Cinderella, Rapunzel and Ariel on the package, shampoo that is tear-free and preferably with conditioner, but if the shampoo doesn’t include conditioner, then we need that, too. We also need new Dory, Minnie and Skye […]

‘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 […]
