My son and I have been talking about trust. It's a hard concept to define, so I ask my son to raise his arms over his head and I tell him that I promise I will not tickle him. He looks a little warily at me, but he does it. I don't tickle him. That's trust, I tell him.…Continue

Dear Southwest Airlines, Wanna get away? Quite frankly, Yes. I Do! Here's why, and how you can help:
O.K., here's the skinny. Growing up, my mom always told me—and yours probably told you the same—closed mouths don't get fed. …Continue

Natural hair, don’t care! I didn’t always feel that way though. In elementary school I begged my mom for a relaxer because I was tired of leaving home polished but coming back looking like a wolf. Any…Continue

If you can’t help but to lie awake at night and think about everything that went wrong or right during the day, you may be overthinking parenting.

You must have an idea of your parents’ preferences. Perhaps your father loves fishing, enjoys hunting, disappears in the garage for hours or travels all his spare time. Otherwise maybe he gets carried away with new technology.
For choosing a gift, you can proceed from his hobbies. In this case, you will probably be able to pick up and buy something that will satisfy him on the celebration at this moment.
The process of searching a way to say “Happy Birthday Dad” can be…Continue

HEY SUNBUTTER! He Likes It!
It would be awfully selfish of me if I didn’t share this tidbit of information with Mom Bloggers Club. As much as I would like to be the keeper of this secret, I just can’t. It’s totally worth sharing, and you can thank me later. Unless of course, it was…Continue

If you need to drag your child to school every day, while they are wailing and refusing to go, you know that something needs to change. Your kid might not understand it at an early age, but school opens up a lot of opportunities later in life and your anxiety regarding your children’s academic performance is a natural impulse conditioned by your own experience. You know that a good academic achievement paves the way to college and consequently helps your child land the job…Continue

I am a big proponent of talking about sex in an age-appropriate way with your children. My son knows that he can ask me questions and he will get honest explanations. He knows the correct anatomical names for body parts, he understands how babies are born and he even understands the basics of how breast milk is made. As he gets older, we will…Continue

My husband and I try to have lunch together at least once a week. He and I are fortunate enough to work only a few blocks apart, and that Tuesday lunch is a treat. It is wonderful to see him in the middle of a busy working day.…Continue

It must have been a particularly bad dream.
My son doesn't have bad dreams very often, but this one was awful enough for him to leave his bed, make his way down the stairs and traverse through the dark all the way to our bedroom. I woke at the sound of our door opening. He wasn't crying, but I did let him…

…is nothing to the joy of meeting again.
Reunited and it feeeels so gooood!
It’s back to school time here in VA. That means teachers are back in their classrooms tearing down paper and setting up bulletin boards. To be honest, the first week they are usually sitting in meetings and trying to figure out the expectations for the year, oh and reuniting with work buddies. Most of the time teachers are as excited to see one another as the…

Taking a toddler to a restaurant is really a crap-shoot. Sometimes he’s golden, others he wants nothing to do with it. Usually, if we can keep him entertained, we’re good. On the days he’s on point I feel like I should play the lottery. We usually choose venues that are: louder, don’t mind a mess and have chicken tenders. Yesterday, we met up with friends from work and some of their kids to surprise and celebrate one of our friend’s change from one school to another. She will be missed and…Continue

When I was a child, I never understood why my Mother always wanted to know where I am, where I was going, when will I return home,etc. I remember she always told me, she would take all the pain in the World if she could, so I wouldn't have to feel hurt, sickness, sadness.. I never really understood that concern of hers, that constant fear and protection, She would tell me:" Just wait till you have your own kids, you will understand it and you will be the same. it's how Mothers…Continue
