Preschool Teaching Tools For Toddlers

Last week, we made the decision to withdraw my son from daycare.  I am sure that he will miss  his friends at daycare; however, he will get plenty of social interaction several times a week at church.  He is excited that he is going to be able to spend all of his time with mommy.  I asked him if he wanted to go to “Mommy’s Preschool” and he…

Why Do Puzzles Make Great Learning Tools?

Yesterday when I went to pick up my son from daycare, he was playing and having a great time.  The teacher was letting all of the kids in his classroom play with puzzles and my son was trying very hard to get the puzzle pieces into the right spot.  It was fun to watch him play and learn a new skill.  I…

How to Prepare Your Child For the First Day of School – Top 7 Tips For Parents

The first day of school is just around the corner and parents and children everywhere are preparing anxiously for their big moment. This is especially the case for children who are going to school for the first time.

10 Fun Summer Activities to Enjoy with Your Kids in NC

If your kids aren't headed off to summer camp this year, you might be stumped as to what to possibly do to keep them entertained and keep you sane. And unfortunately where I live, fun, cultural and educational activities are rare jewels, so we typically have to venture off at least an hour to enjoy ourselves. But don't be discouraged if you live in Small Town, NC like me; North Carolina is chock full of other destinations that are well worth the travel time. I've…

A Special Place In Heaven For Moms With Kids Learning A Musical Instrument

In order to keep putting one foot in front of the other with any degree of sanity, I have to believe that there is a special place in heaven for mothers with children in the process of learning how to play the recorder.

The round-the-clock practice sessions (I heard her playing this morning in her room- AT FIVE IN THE MORNING!)

The monotonous song choices! If I have to listen to the first 5 bars of the Harry Potter Theme Song one more time, I might have to take a nice afternoon…

Fear and Beyond

Last week I called the instructor at the local Ropes Course. We were set to attend with our homeschool group in a few days, and I realized that although it may be interesting to watch the older kids climb, zip and whirl, it'd be more fun if my two oldest could participate fully.



The answer I got: The harnesses can be fit on very young children. It's more about their personal will and interest.



So, we woke early a few days later, tossed our picnic in the car, and drove as…

K-Magic K's Kids Movie and Game Interactive Console Review

K-Magic奇智寶盒主機



With all the technology around and for those that are lucky enough to have iPods, iPads, DS Lights and more, it leaves the younger ones feeling left out.  My youngest likes to play with my iPod and I cringe because she might drop and break it and she has inadvertently learned how to delete.  She also likes to play with her older sister's DS Light and is always losing the games which starts a war in our house.  I want a product that is safe, fun and durable for her and I… Continue

Online Inspiration...and Envy

Seven years ago someone mentioned 'weblogs' and I winced. Why would someone want to go and put their journaling thoughts online for all to see? Good god, what madness is taking over society? We left for Peace Corps in 2000 and returned to the rubbed-and-well-worn jeans look. Cell phones for everyone...and everywhere. And now, diluting of the web with weblogs?!



And then just five years later we welcomed our first child. We were living in the Bay Area and our family lived just far…

Ignored the News About Internet Preferences?

I have.



I opened an email from Moveon.org a few weeks ago and thought, "Jeanine, you have fifteen minutes. It'll come back if it needs your attention." And I promptly clicked "delete" and the email vanished. Honestly, I didn't think about it again.



That is, until I was driving home from "town" the other week. I had the local community radio station on while the girls were playing some screaming, poking game in the backseat. Alas, adult conversation is so incredibly tantalizing… Continue

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

P is for Park and D is for Drive

Thirty-two years ago, I became a licensed driver, one of many pubescent teenagers let loose on the highways and byways of our great nation.  In Illinois in 1979, driver’s education was still offered in school and every student was required to take the class.  For the first quarter of my sophomore year, I sat in a classroom filled with students whose 16th birthdays were quickly approaching.
