When I was little, I had a stay-at-home Mom. She was home to give me a snack after school, took care of me when I was sick and spent hours devoting time to the PTA and the community to make a better life for us. (Thanks, Mom!) My Dad worked long hours, spent time working on the yard on the weekends and drove us to family functions on the weekends. (Thanks, Dad!)…

WARNING: The following information is not recommended for people with weak hearts. What you are about to read can create an instant urge to run to the sink and clean your hands in anxiety.
When learning how to read and spell, children respond best to hands-on strategies. What better way to practice sight words than to use materials that will engage the visual, tactile, kinesthetic, and auditory senses.
Here is a list of my students’ and my own boys’ favorite ways to practice sight words and spelling. Check out astutehoot.com for even more great learning ideas for parents and teachers!

Moms, we know the value of our role within our families. Although some days I find myself drifting to sleep feeling guilty about my growing disdain for housework, about losing my patience with the kids, about not being very proficient in the kitchen. Children, especially little ones don’t really have any idea about what moms do all day. And, for the most part they probably don’t really care. Which is okay. They are little. Moms are sort of like magic elves that work out of…Continue

Some of my favorite television shows are those set in the workplace. I love getting a sneak peek into worlds I haven’t experienced. And, since I haven’t worked regularly in an office for many years, I’m fascinated by the dynamics between the characters. Now, I know this is fiction. A lawyer or editor on a TV show is going to be exaggerated, dramatized, too snarky or silly or just plain scary (like Glenn Close’s character on Damage). We are looking for entertainment…Continue

No not me. This chick, Amy Glass.
This article popped up on my newsfeed this morning and as Luke was tossing his bananas and cereal onto the dogs back I thought, what a lovely morning read, lets see what she has to say...
One paragraph in and I was both giggling to myself at the stupidity of it all and just letting her words fuel my hate fire for her…Continue

When your stomach pains you, what do you do? There are a number of ailments that can cause discomfort, sometimes even severe pain. The distress can come and go, last a few days, or continue on for hours. An episode can erupt quickly after a meal, as a reaction to a prescription,…Continue

My last trip away from home was the Singapore getaway in the middle of September, seems like a long time to me though it was only around two months ago. So when my friend suggested to go Taiping for a short trip, I didn't hesitate, after all, Taiping is just less than an hour away from Ipoh...
I started the journey early on Saturday and we had a nice stroll at the Taiping lake... due to the rain, the plants and the trees glitter and the lake is not "drought looking"…

Couldn't even think about engaging in a conversation until I had my morning dose of caffeine.
But I'm patting myself on the back as it's been one month since I've given it up. No more sumatra blends, fresh roast or mocha java.
