It's Winter here in New Zealand, which means lots of wet and cold days. I've put together a list of activities that work for both Winter and Summer.

As I went to pick up the T’s from daycare, I could not help but notice how stifling hot it was outside! While I was driving and sweating, my mind wandered to many of the high profile cases where children were left inside sweltering hot cars. Sure, we have all seen the signs on the interstate or at the…Continue
I believe that in the summer time, when kids are off from school, that it is important to keep them active. Its important for them and also for you as a parent. When kids are bored they can not help but get into trouble. They need the stimulation that they are no longer getting. One of the cool things we did last year with our daughter was to make a lemonade stand and see what she could do with it. Here's a little more about it if your are interested in reading and seeing more. :)…Continue
Well, the last night of summer is fast approaching, and I’m feeling sentimental about the end of another summer with my kids. While I was thinking about all this last week, I got an idea that I am happy to share with all of you. This little idea is not based on a family tradition, but is a new idea that I will be trying in my home on the last night of summer. I thought you might like it too!
So, when my three children crawl into bed on that last exciting night before starting a new…Continue

I know its still a little chilly out if you are in the Northeast like me, but wherever you are, now is the time to start thinking about how your children will spend their summer. As my children were growing up (They are now 17 and 18 years old) I had one important goal for Summer: I did not want the time wasted. I grew up with days spent playing and learning. Most days of my youth were spent outside with friends and we only came home for lunch and dinner! It was a great way to…Continue

Summer is upon us, and the kids want to go everywhere, beaches, theme parks, baseball stadiums, museums, hikes, waterparks, the list goes on. Sometimes airports or subways are involved.
All of these destinations make it quite tricky to keep close track of children particularly if they are young and you…Continue

Most people probably don’t know that the United States is one of the only countries in the world that does not fund its Olympic team save its Paralympic team. I didn’t realize that either until I interviewed swimming legend Summer Sanders this week. Sanders, who won an impressive four medals in the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games…Continue

I'm thinking about the summer....dreaming of July 1, when mine really starts (last day of work!) But just as soon as I start dreaming....it turns into a nightmare...You know. It goes something like this:
We sleep in a little later, eat a leisure breakfast, do a few chores, play outside before the blistering temperatures get the best of us. Then we eat lunch, read a little....and then........WHAT?
