Yeah, with all the craziness yesterday I used my camera once to take a family photo and I wasn't even in the picture. Bummer. I didn't even get J digging in to his Thanksgiving plate, actually he didn't eat one thing on his plate, he just wanted cheerios or crackers. I tried hard to get him to try a spoonful of mashed potatoes. J was dressed in a cute little corduroy pants, turtle neck sweater vest thing and I didn't take a picture! ....(read… Continue

It's so easy to get caught up on the materialistic aspect that seems to come hand-in-hand with the upcoming holiday season. Seriously? Thanksgiving? I think more people are excited about Black Friday. But let's pause for a moment and really think, what are you thankful for this holiday season? Me? I'm thankful for my family and their good health. It's… Continue

Many would argue that the first 5-years of life are the most developmentally important years in a persons life, both physically and mentally. Of course, as adults, we continue to grow and develop and become the teachers of the younger generation. The earlier argument is based on the idea that no matter how much education and experience you gain as adults, there is something about the teachings from those first years that have been imprinted on our DNA and is difficult to alter.

I am my mothers, still, I am very much my grandmothers child. I was willed this sense that elders are our angels on earth. I would walk behind my grandmother in the pouring rain carrying an umbrella if asked.

Yesterday Ashlyn started rolling around on the carpet whining about her
stomach hurting. She seemed pretty uncomfortable so I decided to let her
do what makes everything better...watching the magical story of
We were headed down the stairs when she started coughing and then made a
small gagging sound. No sooner had I asked "Ashlyn are you going to
throw up?" when the flood gates opened. I think her vomit sailed through
the air for at least a foot… Continue

This time of the year, I always feel that it is a struggle to keep the focus on families and counting our blessings (opposed to what we want on our Xmas lists, who we're hosting for dinner,etc...)
This is something I'm trying at our house this year:
What traditions and ideas do you have?… Continue

Normally my weekends are my time to unwind...so I wasn't looking forward to this particular weekend as I had a conference, and industry gala and a Sunday luncheon to attend.
So far it has been a really good experience. The Saturday conference I spent at the People for Education Conference in Toronto (York University). People for Education are an advocacy group established to ensure that Ontario's publicly funded schools are addressing the issues and needs that… Continue

At what age can a child hold up to an entire day of shopping? Well, if you ask my daughter, her answer would be "four!". My friend Devi and I had planned to drive down to San Francisco for our annual shopping trip but my babysitting fell through for the day, but that didn't stop us. We were motivated mamas! We altered our plans to instead head down to Corte Madera "The Village" instead. That way if Paige decided to call it quits… Continue

Did anyone else catch last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? If so, you saw two moms plan over-the-top birthday parties for their two toddlers. And yes, I said BOTH moms planned and held elaborate parties. I mean in comparison, one of the mother’s really went overboard (as did her plastic surgeon regarding her overly plumped lips)….and the final event didn’t… Continue

Recently, I heard a speaker say that, “the home is the domestic church.” Home is where the family flourishes, traditions are created, memories are cherished, where morals are instilled, and most importantly where our children learn their values. The church is place of worship that provides Christians with fellowship, instruction, and comfort.
Bringing our children to church is an integral part of their Christian education. The church is a wonderful place for families to gather and… Continue

So, here's where you would think I'd be posting the perfect holiday portrait session with my family- everyone smiling, dressed beautifully, the lighting is beautiful, just amazing. Or, for those of you who are getting to know me a little better, you might be thinking, 'No, she's not posting a portrait sitting, maybe a candid shot of her family on the couch or outside playing or something.' Ehhh, not quite.
During our morning coffee conversation, I mentioned to Z (my best friend) that I… Continue

"Tengo un gato en mis pantalones.... You really need to learn to speak Spanish so we can talk around the kids without them knowing what we're saying." Words actually spoken by my best friend this morning.
But, wait. This is Tucson. My kids
may not be able to understand what's going on if we speak Spanish, but everyone else's kids around us will. And, I don't think something's quite right. Did you just teach me to say "I have a cat in my pants"?
