For All Moms

We are sitting at lunch when my daughter casually

mentions that she and her husband are thinking of

"starting a family."



"We're taking a survey," she says, half-joking. "Do

you think I should have a baby?"



"It will change your life," I say, carefully keeping

my tone neutral. "I know," she says, "no more

sleeping in on weekends, no more spontaneous

vacations...."



But that is not what I meant at all. I look at my

daughter, trying to… Continue

Whats Important

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, When 24 hours in a day is not enough; remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.



A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and start to fill it with golf balls.



He then asked the students if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was.



The…

How A Goober Guy Turns Into Crazy Hot Matthew McConaughey

I’ve come to realize men don’t have a clue how irresistible they become when they play with  children and babies. When a man pays attention to a child he instantly becomes way more adorable, sexy and desirable. Guys, I’m thinking you didn’t realize this.

 

The response women have to men when they pay attention to children must be genetic because I’m shocked every time it happens. If my husband wants to woo me, sure fixing dinner or rubbing my back is a great place to start. But…

Toddler Tricks - 21

Ways to Trick your Baby:



Problem:  Your kid, to put it mildly, wakes up on the wrong side of the bed.  It seems no matter what you do, you are going to be graced with a crying jag leftover from sleep.  Nothing appeases, nothing stops it.  She's just cranky when she wakes up.



Solution:  Try to get there right before she wakes up.  This has worked for me about 50 percent of the time.  It's hard to pull off because sometimes the babies will sleep for an hour, other times…

The Common Denominator

What do teachers and students have in common?  They're all people.  Too often, this similarity is overlooked if not entirely forgotten.  Teachers good and bad fall into their roles, and students, often with some resistance, follow suit.  Ignoring humanity in our school systems does no one any favors, and it only gets worse as the government focuses on test scores and statistics instead of on students.



As I considered who to highlight here, the choices seemed endless.  I could choose… Continue

As Twins Grow Up

My girls are identical twins.  I have kept them on the same schedule since birth.  They sleep at the same time, eat at the same time, watch TV at the same time, play at the same time.  Everything is the same.  They even play on the same playground toys at the same time.  It's just easier for me that way.  Plus, they don't seem to mind.  Little did I know I was instigating a mindset that is unknown to most children and that my twins will have to overcome as they grow up.…

I Will Die on Every Hill

The moment you start fighting with a toddler, you have already lost.  Everyone loses, but the parent especially.  The main problem is that a toddler will treat every minor infraction with the same amount of vigor.  It doesn't matter if they have just broken their leg or if you gave them cheerios in the wrong bowl.  When your toddler has the fighting spirit, nothing can stop them.  So the question is, how hard should we try? …

Should Kids Get Paid For Chores And School Performance?

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…

The Hanging Carrot

Packing up, leaving the house in a cluttered disarray of wrapping paper and toy pieces, and hurrying off to the airport at 8 a.m. just before the holidays, I felt nothing but dread as I looked ahead to our day of travel.



First a two-hour car ride to Orlando where we would drop the car off and wait for a shuttle to the airport.  Once there, we would have to check the bags in, go through security, and wait around to board the plane while trying to keep two toddlers amused and calm.  The… Continue

Toddler Tricks - 20

Ways to Trick Your Baby:



Problem:  You have something important to do in a timely fashion.  You'll quickly find that nothing turns normally self-entertained, quiet babies or toddlers into snivelling, whiny, needy messes than the knowledge that their mommy or daddy might actually have something to do that doesn't involve them.



Solution:  Tread softly.  Let nothing in your attitude or demeanor betray that you might have something important to do.  Try not to let your…

A New Year

New Year's Eve has always been a disappointment in my life.  I'm not sure if that's because it's coming after the enormity that is Christmas, or if the expectations of the night are just too high. Maybe it's because of the immense pressure to finally make something of yourself this year, as if the changing of the calendar has any bearing on your personal goal system.  The falsity of the core concept of the New Year is about all that rings true.



Or maybe I'm just a little bitter. …

Holiday Intensity

Christmas is for the memories.  Christmas is for the anticipation.  Christmas, at least when you're the parent of two year olds, is not for the day, itself.



On Christmas Eve, I excitedly brought down my horribly wrapped presents and placed them carefully under the tree in the most eye-pleasing manner I could manage.  I stepped back to view my work, envisioning the happy day that was surely awaiting us.…

The Santa Concept

Christmas has been so hectic.  Dragging babies across the country, presents, presents, different foods, different people, presents, a massive snow storm, and, well, presents.





It's amazing how quickly the girls took to the idea of Santa.  We hadn't prepared them for it throughout the season.  We mentioned Christmas.  We told them about presents.  But we…
