Welcome to 2011 - the year of the clean basement. No, seriously. I mean it this time.
See, it's not that our basement is dank and forbidding - far from it. On the contrary, it's a treasure trove guaranteed to suck you in.
If the children are there, we know we're doomed. Our oversized basement is toy central. Little toys, big toys, - toys that haven't been touched in years. But bring out that old stained, ragged bunny and my daughter clutches it to her chest like a long-lost…Continue

I would bet that for those of you reading this, you would agree that teaching children to be responsible can be difficult. In fact, sometimes 'teaching moments' present themselves and you have to capitalize on them. Like the time when I drove all the way to Lakeville (from Victoria) to Jack's soccer game only to hear, as I get out of the car, "Mom! I forgot my cleats!" And I must confess, my first reaction was to turn around and drive all the way home to get those cleats because otherwise I…Continue

It dawned on me the other day that my kids might actually read this one day! They'll sit down at their virtual computers, say my name or a product name I have reviewed, and up it will pop! Lost in the thousands of posts I will hopefully have done by then, it will take them a while to sort it all out.

This is a tough question... On one hand it may be a bit confusing to tie allowance directly to chores because we should be teaching our kids to help around the house when its needed, not just when it is part of their "to do" chores. Also, it can be very easy for parents to lose track of the chores that have actually been completed. A…Continue

For all you bloggers out there I thought I would share these valuable plug ins for Wordpress that are very important for social media use. Putting all that work in to creating a blog post does not get you very
far if you can not get that content out to people. Allowing your blog
post to be shared by others is vital. Start with the basics and ensure
that your blog post can be shared on Twitter and Facebook. Plug Ins
allow you to add bookmarks that will allow your readers…
