iPhone Overload

My kids are driving me absolutely CUCKOO-KACHOO with all the friggin' apps they continue to want for the iPhone.  Every day it's something new.  My damn phone now has over 8,764 different games on it!  WTF?!  Ok, so maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but I seriously can't find any of the things that I need on it anymore cause it's so overcrowded with kid…

How to use a map? Activities for kids & parents that don't cost anything.

This is so, so important. I can’t stress enough what a vital skill this is.

I know that you may think now: ‘We’re not going to need that with all the GPS & iPhones & smartphones with satellite navigation systems.’

Well, just imagine you are in a place where there is no cell reception (yes, there are places like that on this planet), your battery is dead, you lost your device, etc. Once again, reading maps is an essential skill. And, after all, all these apps on the…

Grandchildren, BINGO and Alzheimer's Disease

I think that one of the saddest things about Alzheimer's disease is the fact that it often robs children of their grandma or grandpa. Children are very astute. They know that grandma or grandpa is there "physically", but they can usually sense that they are not fully "present".



Little ones might be frightened. Tweens might get very quiet, and teens? They might just get angry. So how…

Why I LOVE Infantino Puzzles

I am always looking for puzzles and games that have educational components that my soon-to-be 4 year old will also find entertaining.  One brand that I absolutely L-O-V-E is Infantino!  I knew that they made a lot of different baby items I liked, but I had no idea they made puzzles until I found one at a local discount store.  The packaging caught my eye, with its cute little yellow box with bright pictures of the puzzle pieces on the front, and an actual puzzle piece attached to the handle. … Continue
