Some women view cleaning up as a chore, but I view it as a step by step process that is organized, effective and actually relaxing (crazy I know). Allow me to explain:
Here is picture of my kitchen after dinner, which pretty much looks like a disaster. There are dishes everywhere, items to be stored and put away, dirty napkins, counter tops that are littered with cutting boards, grease and the remnants of a delicious meal.…Continue

Engaging and educational.

In this brightly illustrated book Sadie and her Mom go to the park, and of course Sadie has plenty of questions about the world around them.
This is a lovely story, which is long enough to capture a child’s attention and gives plenty of opportunities for the reader and child to interact,…Continue

As a parent how do you talk with your little ones about this very sensitive subject? You could sit down and talk about what role they play in the family and how important they are to the family. Perhaps you could show them, after all actions speak louder than words. My guest is author Dolores Mitchell and she has created a wonderful story that points…Continue

Then, a couple weeks ago, Bryant and I started singing “Down by the Bay” in the car as we were driving across town, and our multi-part “repeat after me” rendition seemed to work quite nicely. However, now there are only two songs that will postpone a carseat freakout, and both…Continue
