Trunk or Treat

Have you heard of Trunk or Treat?  This is often an event sponsored by a church or community group as an alternative to Trick or Treating.  A group of people gather typically in a parking lot, they decorate the trunks of their vehicles and instead of going door to door for candy and treats the kids go trunk to trunk.  As a host of a trunk you can pass out candy, prizes, have games like bobbing for apples, fishing for small toys, bean bag toss, ring toss, etc.…

When Your Child Hits or is Hit by Another Child

With three boys I am daily reminding them to keep their hands and feet to themselves.  They like to wrestle, jump on each other and someone daily seems to be making unwanted contact with the other. 

This past week my youngest son who is three hit another child in his class.  Now if it was one of the children in the class that is always hitting the other children I probably wouldn’t have given it much thought, not that it is okay to hit for any reason.  But he hit a child who I know…

My Picky Eater

I have three boys, one is extremely picky, one is a little picky and one eats everything.  My extremely picky eater was a good eater when he was a baby; he became picky when he was around two years old.  There are a number of factors that come into play with his pickiness, I know I ultimately enabled him and at times I feel like a horrible mom for this.  I hate that he’s not getting a balanced diet.  I hate that he doesn’t enjoy himself as much when it comes to meal time when visiting…

Helping Your Kids Memorize

When your kids start school they have to memorize a variety of things.  They need to know their home address, home telephone number, spelling words and so much more.

I am going to share what I do to help my children remember their weekly memory verse.  You can use this technique for anything.
My children currently attend private school and every Monday in their homework packet is a memory verse from the Bible, they need memorized by Friday.

Don’t get too excited…

Successful Fails

Having just successfully made it home from the beach, exhausted, sleeping two and a half year old in tow, I came to a realization.  That was just the easiest trip with child that I have taken in a very long time.  When did my baby get so big and when did I start getting the hang of things!?

Trips to the beach are a very popular event in my household.  Hence beach season starting on a sunny 65-degree, April day in New England.  This tradition only makes sense considering it…

When Push Comes To Shove...

I had an interesting morning this week with my 2-year old, Presley.  We follow a pretty regular morning schedule with afternoons being more off-the-cuff.  Wednesday started like any other typical morning, wake up, have breakfast and head to the gym.   Presley will spend an hour in the daycare with the other kids and I work out (well, what is now a very pathetic version of my workout, but we are still moving in some form or another. :). I love it. It’s a win win for both Presley and I.  She…

Living in a Hope and Hopeless World

Those of us who live in North America and Western Europe are truly blessed. We have so many things to help us get through the day that they practically get unnoticed, such as plumbing, hot water, showers and for most, at least two decent size meals a day.

As women we have laws that protect us just like our male counterparts and the liberty to shape our own destiny.  We also have what most people in the world don’t have, hope.

This four letter word has been used so much in our…

12 Things To Tell Your Child (reblogged)

Raising children is extremely hard! We moms (and dads) have our work cut out of us. Life with children is not easy, they get in trouble, they make messes, they’re dirty, but they also show us more love than any other person on the planet could. The truth is though, at certain times, we ALL can stand to be better parents. I have comprised a list of important things, I think we should remember to tell our children because we do get busy and even though they know we love them, we don’t always…

13 Things I Want For You, My Son

Know The Power Of No

It’s a small word that requires great conviction. It’s a short word with a lifelong lasting impact. It’s a negative that achieves much positive. It’s the power of NO.

In today’s permissive society, it’s YES that’s the ruling force of the day. Parenting books and articles are replete with philosophies, expounding on the importance of understanding your child and showing him endless love. This is crucial, of course. Yet, when parents take these philosophies too far, the result can be a…

How To Get Your Kids To Listen

The most precious gift you've ever received is… your child. Along with this priceless gift, you've also received your most all-encompassing task of raising your child.

Of course, establishing proper discipline is easier said than done. In fact, the most common question asked by parents is “HOW DO I GET MY KIDS TO LISTEN?!” However, there is no “one quick-fix solution,” because so many puzzle pieces must fall into place in order for a home’s harmony to resonate. Presuming that the…
