Last week, we made the decision to withdraw my son from daycare. I am sure that he will miss his friends at daycare; however, he will get plenty of social interaction several times a week at church. He is excited that he is going to be able to spend all of his time with mommy. I asked him if he wanted to go to “Mommy’s Preschool” and he…Continue

Geesh, it is officially the last Monday in July, where the heck has summer gone! My goodness, just a few posts ago I was celebrating the first day of summer now this. And to think, I haven't even completed half of my to to- do's from my summer must do list, well with the exception of a few things.
Sigh.. summer please don't go, I need more time:…

From the moment I found out that I was expecting with each one of my children, I couldn’t wait until I was able to have ultrasound done during the later half of the second trimester so that I could find out the gender of my baby. In fact, I have figured out how some couples or moms can make it through their entire pregnancy not knowing the sex on the…Continue

Yesterday afternoon I decided to take the kids to the swimming pool for a bit of afternoon fun. My older kids have been asking when they could go swimming every since school has been out for the summer. I decided that I would surprise the kids and let them go swimming. The look on their face was “priceless” when they discovered that we were going to go swimming.

One of the best ways to develop relationships and build confidence is to have fun together as a family. I just discovered there is a month long celebration aimed at that very thing, strengthening families and building healthy, confident kids. National Family Month is exactly what it sounds like, a celebration of family. It runs annually from Mother's Day to Father's Day.
An easy way to have fun with your kids is to remember what you enjoyed when you were their age and then do it…Continue

One of the things I miss most about working in a first grade classroom is the arts and crafts projects. There’s nothing quite like a child’s piece of artwork to bring a smile to the face of a teacher or parent. Whether we were celebrating a holiday like Halloween or Christmas or creating a memorable display for Veteran’s Day or President’s Day, arts and crafts creations were wildly popular with the kids. We traced, colored, cut and glued our way through the entire school year and had a…Continue

When I was a little girl in Pittsburgh, jumping rope was one of my favorite things to do outside, aside from riding my bicycle. If I wasn’t allowed to leave the yard, I could jump rope. If nobody was allowed to come outside and play, I could jump rope. It was easy and it was cheap.
During recess, there were several girls who had perfected the art of “double dutch” jumping. This involved 2 girls, each holding the end of a jump rope in each hand, and at least 1 (sometimes 2) girls…Continue

The “Back to Sleep” campaign was introduced in the early 1990′s to help prevent babies from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). When a baby is born their heads are still soft and their skull will slowly harden over the next few months. However, laying your baby in the same position all the time places gentle pressure on the back of the skull, causing it to slowly change shape. Read the full post at …Continue

To make the trip more fun, Kiley invited her friend Greydi and I planned out a scavenger hunt. The girls had a list of things to find and then get a picture of it. They did very good and pretty much found it all!

For Pre-K we focused a lot on learning our ABC's. We did this by learning a letter a week. Starting with Aa and moving on till we finished with Zz. This approach worked really well for my daughter. Check out below what steps we took and try some out for yourself!

Last week, we took our official annual family camping trip. Each summer, we take one trip to a California State Park that I deem “official”because it is with kids and without cell phones, laptops, or iPods. The only media we allow are cameras and Kindles (for capturing memories, and because we can keep all our books in one place). What I discovered on this trip was that three days of no Facebook updates, no check-ins, no Tweets and no notifications can actually be…Continue
