Learning like Mommy does

When I was little, I was one of those nerdy kids who really liked school. (Shocking, I know.) I loved my teachers, I liked to learn new things and I even played school on the weekends.…

Looking for a few good women

I went to a college with a much higher ratio of women to men. This was by choice. All the schools that I considered had a higher percentage of women in attendance. Something about that made me feel safer, and since I was dating my eventual husband at the time, I was quite happy with the breakdown.…

Did you really earn that grade?

My son had a spelling test the other day (never mind that he is only four). He came home with a lollipop and a reward report saying that he spelled all his sight words correctly. Except: He didn't.…

Staying in sync with the kids

When I was in junior high school, my Mom worked a varied schedule. Sometimes she was there to pick me up right at 3:30; other days I would go into after school care until 5 pm. Sometimes a friend's parents took me home. (That particular Catholic school didn't have a bus.)…

Mommy is failing at school

Within the span of his short life, my son has been to two schools. He attended the first school from the extremely tender age of six weeks old and only left it after we moved, right before his fourth birthday. In that first school, he made his first friends, and there was a core group of them that moved from room to room. It became natural for me to know them and for them to know me. I've painted their faces, talked to them upon pickup,…

Coasting in the classroom

There are several people in my office who stand while they work. I admire them. Because although I know I need to stand up more in my day, I'm not yet at the point where I am ready to raise my desk. (I'd have to stop wearing heels to the office, for one thing.)…

The Apocalyptic Morning Meltdown

It's never ever easy to be a parent, but man, some days are just harder than others, aren't they?  And when you're dealing with an overtired child, you're pretty much fighting an unbeatable battle, like a kitten trying to hold its own against a wolverine.  Yep, this is exactly how my week began yesterday (as if Mondays weren't bad enough already!)

It had been…

Do you dread the trash after your child's birthday or school bash?

Kids Konserve Has Parties in the Bag!

Planning an event can be fun and dreadful at the same time. A party is a wonderful way to celebrate your daughter's/son's birthday or a special holiday event (Valentine's Day, Halloween, Christmas, etc.). However, all the waste that it can create can be overwhelming.



I remember those birthday parties that I would just buy the disposable plates, cups,… Continue

What is the Healthy Lifestyle Teachers?

About a week ago, I created the group, the Healthy Lifestyle Teachers.

Why did I do this?

Looking at today’s obesity figures, eating out statistics, and a lack of physical activities, isn’t it time to take a good look at the amount of opportunities we offer children to learn about a healthy…
