For parents: when your child doesn't have any friends

I just wanted to write a little about my daughter who was having trouble making friends at school. I know there are other parents that might be concerned about their kids and their friends...or lack there of.



My daughter is in kindergarten and as far as I knew, she was outgoing and had friends in preschool. I knew elementary school would be different and I was right. The first week of school I stalked my baby from my car after dropping her off. What? My first born was in regular… Continue

Defiant Children and Natural Consequences

It was a snowy morning at the bus stop, and the grass was wet and icy. So I told the kids to stay out of the grass and stand on the street so their shoes wouldn't get wet. For reasons I will never understand, Miles decided to take this directive as a challenge. He looked right at me…

Really, I Am Going To Keep My New Years Resolution...

I know, I know.... Who still makes New Years Resolutions and actually takes them seriously?



Well, in my attempt, no, "journey" is a better term... In my journey to find and maintain my recently distant, pre-parenthood sanity, I have made a firm commitment to develop and succeed in my New Years Resolutions...



This is a big deal... This is the first time, ever, that I have made a decision to develop a New Years Resolution and seriously commit to it. In the past, I simply made…

Toddler Tricks - 18

Inspired by my friend Chelsea:



Ways to trick your baby:



Problem: You've just switched over to the toddler bed (or taken the rail off your now-outlawed crib), and your toddler has discovered he has run of the room.  Instead of sleeping, there's a raucous party going on in there, a party of one (or in my case, two).  You've taken all the toys out of the room, you've made sure it's as boring and calm as it could possibly be, and still, your child has developed an imagination…

Phantom Noises

The babies are finally asleep.  It's the middle of the day.  Maybe I can squeeze in that shower I've been wanting to take since yesterday morning.



I turn the hot water knob, water sluices toward the wall, the inviting tap tap tap calling to me well before the water is warm enough.  I ready my towel, brush my hair.  I leave the door open, just in case.  Just in case something happens, I'll be able to hear the babies.  Everything should be just fine, right?  They sleep for at least an…

Where the Heck is the Tape?

I am the worst wrapper in the history of present wrapping. I always start out with such good intentions. I'm going to cut my lines straight and even. I'm going to line the corners up and crease my folds. I'm going to use very little tape so that you can't even see it. I'm going to put ribbons and bows on every present. They are going to be beautiful.



These ideals last only until I lose the scissors the first time, which is to say, the first time I put them down. They're scissors.…

The Last Goodbye

On May 3rd 1992, my son Eric Miller was killed in a one car collision. He was home visiting with family in Louisiana. My family and I visited Louisiana very often. However, when my son began to insist that he spend some time in Louisiana with our family, I reluctantly agreed.

After I received the phone call telling me that my beloved, beautiful and kindhearted son was killed in a car accident; I slowly began to understand why going home was so important to him. It seemed as if I was…

Inconsiderate Fu*kers!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/11/inconsiderate-fuckers.html



After my initial horrific solo mUm travel experience, I developed a strong 'fuck you' approach towards anyone who even dared look in my direction when Michael cried, however, on my recent international travels, again as solo mUm, my patience and language profanity ability were truly tested!



The story begins, again, as our 36-hour… Continue

Give Him a Fish - Teach Him To Fish

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/12/give-him-fish-teach-him-to-fish.html



My husband grew up on Lake Beulah in Wisconsin (ya naw), spending every moment he could, fishing. Whether, off the jetty in the beautiful warm Summer months, or huddled in a hut, over a small hole in the ice, so it was only a matter of time before Michael too would experience his first fishing adventure.



Now, I… Continue

Christmas Greed Pot: I'm The Kettle!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/12/christmas-greed-pot-im-kettle.html



I just read a post suggesting that $300 was a suitable amount per child to spend on Christmas gifts, and after closing my mouth in disgust, have to question how the true meaning of Christmas has been replaced by a superficial need to transform our children into spoilt rotten Veruca Salt's!



And, while it's absolutely… Continue

My Precious Angel Of A Child Is Testing Me!

It is inevitable that sooner or later, our "precious angels" will challenge our authority and power as their parents. Little do they know, we are usually always a step ahead and have the benefit of knowing them better than they know themselves...



My recommendations are to not force or use intimidation to "control" their behavior. Remember, even though we are parents, we still don't have the God given ability to "control" another human beings behavior and attempting this with a…
