We all know the children's chant...It's raining, it's pouring, everything is boring...what? You are thinking that is not the way it goes and yet we all have had children pull the "I'm bored" card on us. I am sure you have responded with "I can give you a chore" or perhaps you did the "With a room full of toys, how can you tell me you have nothing to do?" One rainy day when my granddaughter said she was bored, I sat on the couch and said "let's be bored together." At first she…Continue

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

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.

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
