Parents don't have all the Answers

 A lovely evening of Pretty Little Liars watching with my Lil mama bought upon some great conversation and as I fell asleep last night this is what I thought of again. So I wanted to talk about it with you.

Here's is a BIG question...

Should I admit I don’ have all the answers? I don’t really know everything after all?

Would it be so terrible of me to actually “be human”?…

You gotta know when to push them (part 2)

On Monday, I shared some of the ways that I push my son so he learns about money and doesn't give up on trying new things. And that is all fine and dandy. But the real challenge for me will be pushing him academically without become a crazy, overbearing Mom in the process.…

When it is too loud to think

My son recently went to a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. When I was a child, Chuck E. Cheese was a wonderland of fun games and chaos. Now that I am an adult, I think of it as a casino for children.…

Cooking at home

This past weekend, I helped my son make pancakes.



I phrased it that way on purpose, as this was the first time I let him take the lead in making pancakes while I supervised. Up to this point, I would only let him do the prep work and stir ingredients together. But this time I let him work with the batter on…

The way we view failure

My son walked in while I was getting ready for work and said, "Mommy, I have some questions about ancient Egypt that I would like to talk about."



Of course he does.…

Returning to pen and paper

I still use pen and paper for a lot of things: Shopping lists, stories for my other blog, notes at work and planning events. Since I went to college when laptops weren't a thing, it still feels more natural for me to take notes with pen and paper than by typing them. Also, I feel that I tend to remember things better if I write them down.…

Forgiving Ourselves As Parents

Feeling guilty when you are parent is something that seems to become second nature. ​​You just can't help yourself! Very often it's the little things that will rack you with guilt, sometimes (but rarely) it might be something big. This 'big'…

Learning Disabilities

I am a chatter box. I have a lot of conversations, in my travels through my daily day. I have, at times, heard a lot of misinformation about learning disabilities. So I'm going to give every one some super BASIC info on learning disabilities. Knowledge is power man. That way you don't look like a ding dong when you are stating something at a wine and cheese party.

AUTISM…

Why I ignore most of my son's homework

My son has been in school since he was six weeks old. Not daycare. School. Before he reached preschool age, he had endured extensive homework requests to put together collages of various themes, build beanstalks, retell stories and (once) to build a robot. And we did it all because education is important to me.…

What I've Learned About Breastfeeding

Little B is almost 3 months old. That means every single day, multiple times a day, I've put her at my breast to feed and nourish her. After the first few goes at it, you tend to get to know the ropes and it becomes second nature. Here are six things that I've learned from my very short time breastfeeding.

It can hurt

But then it gets better! For the first 6 weeks or so, every single latch made me wince in pain.…

Double up Diwali fun - Let kids discover the cultural adventures of the festival

Everything I know is wrong

I have tried standing more during the day. Because I once read that sitting too much was bad for my health. I tried standing more at home, at work and when I went outside to play with my son. I stood. But, it turns out that I didn't need to.



Another study has just declared that…

I Saw the Sign: Teaching Toddlers Sign Language

Communication. At 28 years old, it's a skill I still haven't even fully developed yet. To expect a baby or toddler to master a skill that most adults haven't completely grasped yet is a recipe for disappointment. In my experience, most tantrums are caused by a toddler feeling like their wants and needs are going unheard. Since the vocabulary of wee ones is still limited, teaching our toddler sign language has saved us (at least several) arm flailing, back arching, high-pitched screeching…

Little hearts & curious minds

It's not surprising to see kids speak their mind, ask questions until convinced and have a say in everything that's happening around. We all agree technology rules the world today and kids being so smartly adapting to it is no wonder a boon in a true sense.

What your child's teacher wants to know

When I was in fourth grade, our house caught on fire. Happily, no one was hurt, but a great number of our possessions either had fire or smoke damage. My brother and I took off a few days from school as a result of our parents trying to figure out how to restore normality to our family.…

Back to School Organization

Back to #School #Organization from @MomTattles #B2S #DIY Monday morning, my Facebook feed was filled with proud parents as their children started their first day of school. By 2pm, those enthusiastic statuses looked a little uglier, grimmer, and much more stress filled. A new school year involves lots of moving parts, but what are some of the ways you and your family can make back-to-school an organized…

Benefits of 1 on 1 Private Tutoring

The truth is that education as a notion has improved over the course of centuries drastically. We now understand the way learners’ brain works while in the process of learning, we understand the way in which it adopts new knowledge and we have an awareness of all the factors that influence that same process for better or for worse. Still, the modern educational system and all of its features are the way they are more because of necessity than any other practical reason. It is a known fact…
