The music that binds us

My son is groggy and sluggish in the morning, so I play some peppy music from the 80s to wake him up. After a few songs, he is still sleepy, but slightly happier. Eventually, he dances to the music and even sings some of the words. This puts me in a better mood because I know the words, too, so we can dance and sing together.…

Will you remember this?

I remember being eight. I remember liking being eight. It was fun - no responsibilities and lots of time outside with friends and I made relatively few decisions. My Mom and Dad made sure my life was full and wonderful.…

What was that book about again?

Every week, my son has trouble coming up with a book to use for his reading homework. And this baffled me. I mean, he is always reading. Sometimes, he is re-reading a book that I saw him read the week before. And, I ask him questions about the things that he reads, so I know he is really reading them.…

7 Tips To Help Your Kid Remember Information

Kids have the strangest memories. They’ve not yet learned to slow down and play things sensibly, so while they can remember a bunch more details than their moms about something that fascinated them, the important stuff seems to slip through their minds like a sieve.

Teaching them to be punctual or the importance of homework can be kind of pointless if they’ve no framework for remembering the times of things or memorizing facts and figures. Fortunately, such a framework does exist – or…

Remembering the person you were in high school

A few months ago we took our son to the local high school to watch a robotics competition. In addition to the robotics, he loved seeing the older students and spent some time talking about how large the school was and what he would learn there.…

To sleep and forget about it

My little bear hears his alarm, turns it off and shuffles out of his bedroom to my desk where I write this blog. He scrambles into my lap, we snuggle and I ask him some basic questions to determine his morning mood.



(Bad mood days are generally turned around by showing my son pictures of cute baby animals or…

Choosing what to forget

Up until this point, my husband and I have been the keeper of our son's memories. I've written letters to him since I learned I was pregnant, I'm one of those scrapbooking Moms who has shelves full of family albums documenting our family adventures, and my wonderful husband is the photographer of the family, capturing all the big (and…

Could your weight be affecting your memory?

I know a lot of things that affect my memory: My ability to concentrate on one thing at a time, the way I initially experience the memory, the amount of sleep I've had, and whether or not I've just entered a room. But I had no idea that my weight could affect it.…

That time I got burnt by a sparkler

As the Fourth of July arrives, I am filled with childhood memories of summer: going to camp and catching fireflies, of riding bikes and when Dad fired up the grill because it was too hot for Mom to use the oven every night. I can even remember the one summer there was a lunar eclipse and I was allowed to stay up and watch it.…

You gotta stick with your lie

My son is not a good bluffer. Every time we play UNO, he lets out shouts of  "yes!" and "you guys are going down!" in reaction to the cards that he is dealt. And when I do catch him in a lie, he has at least a dozen little fidgety facial ticks and moves that gives him away.…

Why you are your mother

Somewhere in the ever-growing list of apologies to my Mother, I am making a point. (It's subtle, but it's there.) The point is that my Mom knew what she was doing when she was raising me and that she showed me lots of love and support every day. Those are just a few of the reasons I find myself incorporating some of the things she did into…

Helping boys remember

A few weeks ago, I thought my memory could use some work. But after talking with some friends about my memory gaps, I've determined that I have a pretty good memory.
