We’ve talked about this before: prioritizing - well, we’ve discussed why it’s important, but not how to do it.

Growing up, my parents taught us the value of quality family time. My mother insisted that we sit down as a family most evenings for dinner. Seriously? - Both my parents worked full-time jobs and my siblings and I had our own schedules. My mother had the audacity to demand that Sunday supper together was a "Because, I said so" evening. There were no cell phones, TV or any other distractions. Just the family enjoying a great home-made meal together while sharing the moments of our week or…Continue

I have to manage one more step than last time; one more stride than before; one more pace…Continue

This weekend has absolutely flown by. Although yesterday while my little guy was napping, I did get a little more Christmas decorating done! One way to add a little holiday flavor to your house is to add some Christmas cheer to the decorative vases and bowls around your house. And if you want to do this with a larger vase, you might be thinking that it’s going to take a LOT of Christmas balls to make that happen! In reality –…Continue

Here in our home, the best way they spend it is by…what else…eating!
So during their last semestral break, my husband and I got busy in the kitchen and we thought of different meals to keep the children engaged.
