Test is a loaded word and most children know it. While some shrug off the implications of it, others fret and obsess, giving them test taking anxiety. This anxiety, while having many ill effects, most immediately hampers the child’s test taking abilities and reflects upon test scores, which can then inaccurately reflect the child’s knowledge over a subject matter. This uphill battle does not have to be fought alone; parents can help their children with test taking… Continue

Normally my weekends are my time to unwind...so I wasn't looking forward to this particular weekend as I had a conference, and industry gala and a Sunday luncheon to attend.
So far it has been a really good experience. The Saturday conference I spent at the People for Education Conference in Toronto (York University). People for Education are an advocacy group established to ensure that Ontario's publicly funded schools are addressing the issues and needs that… Continue

I'm not a coffee drinker. I love the smell of coffee, but I'm not crazy about the taste. With that said, I've always wondered why/how people could just hang out at Starbucks all afternoon... and now I know.
I've got the afternoon off from "mommy duty" and decided to play the part of a "cool kid" this afternoon and stop by… Continue

Yes, I'm dreaming of a green Christmas... not the type of Christmas with no snow but the type of Christmas that has minimal impact on the environment. I've put together a list of ways in which to put some green into the upcoming Christmas season....

Okay, so I took the plunge last weekend and started a Facebook page for my blog. So far, it's not doing much! I go through other Mommy Blog Facebook pages, and I'm so inspired. I just don't know what to do with mine. I'm not sure what purpose it should have, if that makes any sense??
And, I'm getting frustrated, because I did the simple… Continue

I’m thinking the Annie Grand Finale would be good enough to celebrate Thomas’s first birthday, but instead of fireworks writing “Annie”, it would be “Thomas” of course. Here are some of my ideas on how to make this happen.

I posted on my random blog a few times a while back about how me and my daughter were fighting a lot, or me and my husband arguing a lot, etc. I don't know the exact date but the blog is…

Maybe it's called being two. After our Halloween Hoopla at church, Anna Grace and I met my parents at Ruby Tuesday's for dinner. Anna was a little grumpy after a long day and a little restless. I opened her book bag and pulled out coloring pages, crayons, and a book to try to appease her to no avail. Finally I got smart and pulled out a Halloween sucker. The sucker did the trick. She popped it in her mouth and there was no more whining. Praise the Lord!
After tending to my grumpy… Continue

It has been another poor week, well actually two weeks. This check we still had some extra money that needed to go to the power bill for our last house we moved out of in the summer. It was hard (and we still haven't caught up totally) to catch up.
We are not supposed to be… Continue

At what age can a child hold up to an entire day of shopping? Well, if you ask my daughter, her answer would be "four!". My friend Devi and I had planned to drive down to San Francisco for our annual shopping trip but my babysitting fell through for the day, but that didn't stop us. We were motivated mamas! We altered our plans to instead head down to Corte Madera "The Village" instead. That way if Paige decided to call it quits… Continue
