Does yellow make you feel like a banana? Is red just like lava? And does purple make you feel like an onion? If so, then you, too, will succeed as an Art Mom in my child's classroom.
Being an Art Mom is simple: You prepare a little program that teaches the kids about artists or color or a style of art, and then develop a little project to go with it. It's a lot of fun - second graders are a very appreciative audience.
I decided to talk about color and moods - you know, how does…Continue

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

There is no manual that pops out with the baby that tells you exactly how to raise a child. So what do we do? We ask friends, family or buy books. The problem with that is we are getting advice from someone else's experiences based on their own environment, family dynamic, genetics, issues or talents. We need to find out who WE are first and then raising a child will be easy. How do we do that? The only way to find answers is to ask questions.
The glitch is that we need to be…Continue

I am a bit obsessive when it comes to feeding my kids. When I start looking at labels and realizing that EVERYTHING they eat has sugar, salt, and disgusting chemicals it just makes me crazy! Even so-called "healthy" foods like yogurt and granola bars are loaded with refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. It makes me want to move to a cabin in the woods and feed the kids…Continue

Elliott gets her braces today. I can’t tell if she is excited or scared. The appointment was made in May when I took her to the orthodontist to see if she needed braces. Colby and I knew she needed braces because she has a receding chin and a wicked overbite, but we needed to respect the experts.
For seven months, Elliott has worried about, asked about, stewed about, and celebrated the fact she would be getting braces in December. As the rest of her required teeth fell out,…Continue
