With spring now in full bloom, my boys want to be outside as much as they can. When I meet Elijah at school at the end of the day, the first words out of his mouth now are, “Can we go to the park?” If that gets turned down for some reason, the next question is, “Can we play…Continue

I get a great sense of satisfaction feeding my family healthy food. What’s an even greater sense of satisfaction is when my family is eating something healthy and they have no idea. Sometimes I quietly snicker and think to myself, haha, tricked you! Only if they knew what they were eating sometimes, I would probably be banned from the kitchen forever.
I was actually born with ice cream in my genetic…Continue

It had been a while since the last time Illy and I had gone on a date. Sure, we'd done things together as a family, but it wasn't concentrated time with just us. We checked out the calendar, selected a date, and put our names in the box. This was our date and Nothing was going to change that... hopefully. Well, the day finally arrived and, although I was already tired from a full day out with all three…Continue
When you first think of the word "date," it's easy to assume that it involves two individuals roughly around the same age who are in some type of romantic relationship, whether new or seasoned. While this may be true, "dates" can include kids, too. (preferably not in addition to the two individuals in a romantic relationship- that's what babysitters are for!) Special outings with just one child and…Continue

How many parents are tired of hearing, “What’s that green stuff” or “I don’t like it?” It seems we have a better chance of getting our children to eat snacks loaded with refined sugar and preservatives than natural fruits or vegetables. Who can blame the kids though?
The effectiveness of guerilla…Continue
Yesterday afternoon when my son got into the car, he was asking his sister if she ever put salt on ice. I didn’t realize that he was talking about putting the salt and ice combination on his skin. I just assumed that his science teacher was teaching them about temperature changes using salt and ice. Then this afternoon, I noticed a huge red spot…Continue

And usually about this time of year, several weeks in, a large majority of these same people let the…Continue

We have an ice issue in our house. It’s an issue that involves laziness, denial, blindness, stubbornness, and principle.

A few months ago, I started taking my kids to the ice skating rink to watch the hockey players and figure skaters. Ever since we've been going to the ice rink as spectators, my son has been asking when he
can try ice skating. He just turned 5, so I told him I would take him
as a special day out with Mom.
So, we got all bundled up and were really excited to go. My husband and my little guy came to watch too. Then, as…Continue

I rolled out of bed. I could feel it in my bones and down my spine. It wasn't necessary to peek out the window but I needed to confirm with my eyes what my body was already telling me. It snowed last night....

This popped into my head tonight and I had to post it before my peri-peri-perimenopausal brain forgets it, all together. An amazingly fun and kid friendly dessert.
