Indoor Play Series

This is the first post in a series of indoor play ideas. Winter and cold, snowy, freezing rainy days are right around the corner (right outside???) and there are so many fun, education-through-play activities that can keep all ages from boredom and mass chaos (aka children) from tearing through the house...



for at least 10 minutes. Continue reading...… Continue

Terrific Tuesday - Imagination

Terrific Tuesday - I love my imagination, it is terrific.

 
A few weeks ago a Facebook friend shared with me a Vlog she had done asking a group of women to name something at which they excelled. She talked about how the group of incredible women were reluctant to talk about what they thought was good about themselves.  I was intrigued by that idea and thus the idea for September's Terrific Tuesdays was born. Each Tuesday throughout the month of September I am going to…

Women and the Art of Play

 

We all know about the importance of play for the emotional growth and development of children. It can enhance their imagination, increase social skills and boost self-confidence. So why don't we place more value on play for ourselves? According to a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, ½ of American women don’t have enough time to spend on themselves and the activities they enjoy.

Early on, girls tend to be collaborative, communicative and caring – you can see it…

Sometimes Money CAN Buy You Happiness

 

When your kids are eerily quiet for any extended period of time, nine times out of ten it's because they're trying to burn your house down.  But every once in a blue moon, the stars all align, and the pip squeaks somehow actually manage to..... *gasp*..... play quite nicely together.  Sure, you might have to pay them for that momentary bit of peace and quiet, but we…

Make A Little Summer Magic

Cheers! Summer is officially here. And based on the weather here, summer didn't want anyone to forget it.



It was H-O-T all week.



After weeks of back and forth warm-and-then-cold-rainy-days, summer is here full throttle. And I'm excited that our tall, seeding grass will die back soon, so I can perhaps breathe clearly again. Sniff sniff.

Surviving 5 Kids and Their Imagination

When talking with any sane adult, one can reasonably expect a conversation consisting of a chain of statements stemming from a comparatively small bank of possibilities. One might not know, for example, exactly how one’s colleague will respond to a business proposal, but rest assured he most likely…

Wishing I Was Upstairs...

And not because I like two-story homes. I actually told my husband many years ago that I NEVER wanted to live in a multi-story dwelling. They don't appeal to me. The extra space. The loftiness. The stacking of life. I'm not a 'bird' person. I like roots. Ground. Stability. Well, relatively speaking.



But whenever you utter the word "never" you get re-aligned by good old destiny. So this is our second home in a two-story. Not on purpose, mind you. It's not like we looked at a bunch of… Continue

Providing the Environment

I grew up in the country. There were 4 houses in a row full of family which incuded aunts and uncles; cousins; grandparents; cats and dogs. On Sundays we'd take turns at which home we would all gather for dinner. In the summertime we'd join one another under my aunt's pine trees and share suppers. Afterwards the adults would sit and talk and my cousins and I would play. Actually we played outside constantly no matter what the season. In the winter we'd be skating on the frozen creek that…

Monday Muse | The Beauty of Buttons

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.



2010-05-31 - Monday Muse - The Beauty of Buttons



I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…

It Runs in the Family and There is Nothing to Be Ashamed Of

I should have known my life would resemble tectonic plates not meant to hold still when my first sentence at the age of nine months was “eff routine”. I didn’t say it out loud, of course, or even know the words. But inside I felt their meaning. I couldn’t walk or talk yet, but I threw myself into the part. A restless method actor.



I knew, when at a year and a half, I reached over the top of my net playpen for the scissors my sister left too close to the edge of the dining room table,… Continue

Your Children Only Get One Childhood

I am the first one to say parenting is serious business. After all, I’m not only a mother and a grandmother, my work as an author is based on parenting as well. And like most parents, I focus on how and what my children learn, especially during their formative years. The formative years are the most important years in terms of the characteristics and traits they obtain and carry into their adult lives.



Parents place an enormous amount of energy on their children’s academic education,… Continue

Avoid Wet Butts in Your Jeans

Some kids collect seashells, bottle caps, rocks, marbles, trophies, baseball cards, coins. Most kids collect things they see as an extension of themselves. Things they are proud of and can display on a shelf and share with other people. They bring their conversation pieces to school for show-and-tell, spread them out for other people to pick over, admire and wish they were the lucky ones who found all those neat things. Not me. My collection was top secret. I definitely wouldn’t think of… Continue
