Because of the amazing teachers at his school, he can tell me who Johnny Appleseed is, can identify all his continents on a map, and gets plenty of exercise. We do his homework together every week to strengthen the concepts he learns there. I love his school and his fearless…Continue

Since the day I am "addicted" to Sudoku, I have downloaded the free games in my "not-so-smart" handphone... at least now I know how to pass time without feeling bored, "impatient", stressful, distracting me from all these anxieties... hahaha...
How addicted am I? Well... morning and evening "business" allows me to use my brain for at least 15 minutes and I don't smell anything "stenchy" when my grey cells are at work! hahahaa... Gross?…

Although, I have never been a “teacher” in a classroom filled with kids, I have been an…Continue

Mommy wars were originally the stomping ground of the working in the home mom versus the working out of the home mom. Now most people understand no matter how you slice it, it's ALL WORK! Why bother fighting over who does what best. In my world it goes something like this, I'll make the cupcakes(disclaimer below) and you do the spread sheet. Before Excel, carpools went something like this, hey if you drive Monday, I'll drive Thursday? I can read a spreadsheet, just don't ask me to write it…Continue

Whenever we visit a friend’s house, my kids inevitably want to go see their bedroom. I have noticed the same curiosity when other kids come to our house: kids wonder where we sleep, what toys we play with, or even what snacks we have in our pantry. This natural inquisitiveness is equaled in adults- how many times have you taken in the details of a friend’s home, visited an open house for sale just to see the interior, or watched a show on TV that tours the inside of houses? We can…Continue
