Over the past year, my husband and I have realized that we may be missing the mark a bit with our parenting. Even though both of our kids are still young, the “give me’s” have been getting more and more intense. Can you relate? Every store we walk into they ask for new things. When […]
I’m not that old. But I can recall a time “back in the old days” when we actually had to push buttons on our phones, heck we even had HOME PHONES, and if you were a southern family like mine, your home phone was attached to the wall with a cord even, and a rotary […]

Are you thinking of moving to the Winter Garden or Windermere, Florida area? Being a mom and moving to a new area can be scary. It’s hard enough to get the kids shoes on, much less have time to explore and get out to meet other moms. I think we hit the jackpot in moving […]
How many of you grew up watching Mister Rodgers? He truly was a brilliant man who had so many great words of wisdom, one in particular was about the magic of “PLAY”. “Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.” -Fred Rogers One day back in February 2017 (my son was about 12 […]

‘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 […]

I recently attended a baby shower and found myself fascinated by some of the gifts – new baby products that did not exist when my almost thirteen year old twins were babies. I thought of my own mother, who passed away when my girls were not quite two, and how she would be astounded not only by […]
Summer 2016 is quickly winding to a close. At the end of July, we picked up our twelve year old twin daughters at sleep away camp. They spent four weeks in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina having the time of their young lives. If at all possible, I highly recommend sending your children to sleep away […]
I’ve been harboring a Pokémon trainer in my house for a few years now. He binge watches the shows and movies on Netflix, meticulously organizes his card collection in plastic sleeves, and has the outfit to go Pokémon hunting on a moments notice. He is constantly talking about Ash, Team Rocket, and (of course) his […]
Is it still nerdy to love the library if you have one as cool as the Orange County Library? I have always loved visiting libraries, and I have lots of memories wasting away long summer days in some corner with a stack of books next to me. Now I take my toddler and, yes, we check out books, […]
