Let's go bowling

I suck at bowling. (Actual bowling - I rock at Wii bowling.) I lob the ball a bit too far down the lane, I don't take the time to line myself up and I often get gutter balls. But every time I've gone bowling with my son, I've had a blast.



And I am not sure why that is. Admittedly, my son is very good at…

Are You Stressing Your Kids Out?

This content originally appeared on www.playdatesonfridays.com.

Two travel soccer leagues, piano, gymnastics, horseback, theater and various school activities.   And sometimes a lacrosse clinic. Or basketball. Or we may take a cooking class some place.

Sometimes when I write it all down, it freaks me out a bit, and I ask myself, “Are we doing too much? Do my kids have enough time to play, or breathe?”

And then I…

Super Bowl Party for the WHOLE Family

I absolutely LOVE football! I really do. You may have read my article 5 Things Fantasy Football Taught Me About LIFE, which really gives you an idea of where my love for this sport came from and why I am excited for THE BIG GAME on Sunday!

Peyton Manning was my Quarter Back for Fantasy Football, so Super Bowl XLVIII is pretty exciting for me! It is kind of funny how he became my QB actually. Last year I was pregnant and we were trying to think of a name for our little girl that would…

3 Great Benefits of Increased Physical Activity and Ways to Encourage Your Child to Be More Active

As a mom of three, I realize how important it is for my children to get enough exercise and have time to play outside.  Things have changed dramatically since I was a child growing up and I feel that kids today don’t have the opportunity to get outside to play.  Kids are either busy with school work, participating in after-school…

Today I took my son to visit the local library for the very first time.  I wasn’t sure what to expect because the library close to our house is fairly small.  When we went into the library, I was amazed by the amount of books and activities that our local library has to offer the children.  Every week our library has a scheduled…

NOT Painting with Tennis Balls

  This was going to be a post about our experience painting with tennis balls. But there's not much to say, because we never got very far. 

     I put some paint on a paper plate and Kay rolled the tennis ball in it, then bounced it hard onto the paper I'd placed on the ground. She bounced it one more time, then said, "It makes an ugly design." Then, "Can I paint with my feet?" Does all of our painting projects have to devolve into body painting? Apparently. …
