Music lessons for the digital age

When I was in fifth grade, I left my lunch early every Wednesday to take a 40-minute piano lesson with Sister Ruth. She was a retired nun and there was an extra cell in the convent attached to our school that had a lot of windows and an upright piano. She was very kind, but I found the process of learning the piano to be painfully slow.…

Waiting for adult swim

I love watching my Mom swim. She is like a fish in the water - all clean lines and muscles in motion. I am noticeably less graceful in the water, but I can swim. My Mom made sure we had lessons at an early age and knew more than the basics.…

Lessons from Shadow: My Life Lessons for Boys and Girls by Shadow Bregman

What a wonderful book for children. Not only is it cleverly written by a worldly black Labrador called Shadow, of course kindly penned by his human daddy Walter Bregman, but it contains some important life lessons for children to learn, and other dogs of course as long as…

Why do Kids Lie?

We all lie period. For different reasons at different levels at different times and to different people. I've talked about this before. Our current President is a huge example of lies. So why should we expect that our kids would not engage in this deception as well?

Now that my daughter is older she has moments where she will say to me "oh I can…

Music Lessons Can Help Boost Your Child's Brain Power

Many of us can remember taking music lessons in our youth. For some, it was a passion that lasted until our adult years. For others, it was something our parents wanted us to do. Either way, we benefitted from learning music more than we realized. Recent studies show young children who take music lessons can boost brain growth.

Helping Your Child Get Over Fear Of Water

My daughter has always been scared of the water. She doesn't like the pool or beach at all, even fountains (I think the only water she likes is the water from the faucet when she's taking a bath). No matter how we tried to entertain her (give her a toy, show her how much we're enjoying it, etc.) while in it, she would always be anxious, would cling to me and fuss so our pool or beach time would always be a quick one.

It…

The Karate Kid Check-In Part 2

Early bird gets the worm…

I don’t know what it is about this gym, but I really like it there.  The lady who seems to be in charge was there alone when we arrived early for class and I talked to her about Martial Arts a little since we had time.

With that time I immediately asked some…

What Breastfeeding Has Taught Me About Motherhood

*** As always, feel free to check out the original post here! ***

When my child was born my goal was to breastfeed for one year. I was open to the possibility of continuing beyond the one year mark, but from where I sat a full year of breastfeeding— with all of the time and discomfort and pain that went along with it— seemed like a lofty enough goal.

Twelve months…

10 Things I Want My Daughters to Know about Dressing Themselves

At preschool drop-off another mom pointed out,"Your daughter's socks don't match."

I turned my palms upward in a je ne sais pas and wrinkled my nose, "Rough morning. Can’t win ’em all.” 

My then four-year-old was Little Miss Mismatched. She loved Disney princess dresses paired with rain boots and purple flowered leggings with her green and gold Packer t-shirt.

That morning, I picked my…

Learning how to talk to strangers

In second grade we were all encouraged to create a secret code word so that if our parents ever sent an intermediary to pick us up from school, we would know it was safe to leave with that individual. (I can't remember if my word was kitten or Strawberry Shortcake.)…

CAN IT GET ANY WORSE?! Yes... Yes it can!

It was one of those days that you start off wishing you could just stay in bed and sleep and skip the next couple of days because you KNOW they will be hellish. My car blew up the night before. The coolant emptied and I drove it while it was overheated. So it didn’t technically blow up like an…
