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
A few weeks ago, my son and I went through his bookshelf. We pulled out all the books that he identified as "baby books," and ones that he didn't want to read. My little guy can read lots of words by himself now, and although he hasn't moved on to reading himself full books yet, I want his shelves to be ready for him. So, we said good-bye to the "I Love Daddy Because" or "Count to 10" books and took them to our second-hand…Continue

Today I took my son to visit the local library for the very first time. I wasn’t sure what to expect because the library close to our house is fairly small. When we went into the library, I was amazed by the amount of books and activities that our local library has to offer the children. Every week our library has a scheduled…Continue

** Little girls and drama go together like hookers and high heels.
** It's called a "hot" glue gun for a reason. Ouch!
** I'd forgotten how much I wanna feed Barney cookies laced…Continue
I have a LOAD of cookbooks. I love to cook, I think it is fun. Typically I find a few recipes in each cook book that I like and the others don't really interest me too much. Not so with Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals .…Continue

I live in such a nice little town that meeting someone unpleasant is always a bit of a slap in the face. But it happens, of course. I guess no place is immune.
Yesterday, my daughter wanted to go to the library. She's 12, and she likes to visit "The Teen Place," a special room that houses all the YA offerings, along with a few tables and a line of computers. It has a neon sign and is very hip looking. I knew she'd come out with an armload of Manga books.
Well, I love the…Continue
It was another one of those nights when I couldn’t sleep. By 2am, one kid had woken up once, another twice, and I was wide awake from my efforts to get everyone back to sleep again. So, as I usually do, I
just laid there in bed thinking. Sometimes I think about what to pack
the kids for snacks for camp. Or I wonder if I forgot to put the
laundry in the dryer. Sometimes I think about the long list of things I
haven’t been able to get to. This was one of those…
