5 things I learned this Halloween.





1. Picking a costume is so much easier when you have kids.



         I used to have so much trouble choosing my costumes, but you know who has no trouble at all choosing my costumes? MY SON.  He is very opinionated when it comes to what I wear, Halloween or not.

 Like a lot of 6 year old boys this year, my son chose to be a ninja turtle. Micheal Angelo, to be exact.  Of course, he wanted me to be April O'Neil, and since I'm pregnant, I had to get a little… Continue

Making Old Toys New

When I found out my first child was a boy, the response from everyone was, “Uh oh! You are gonna be busy. Boys are active.” I thought to myself, “Good. It will probably help me to lose some of this baby weight I’ve gained.” It wasn’t until around the time Joshua turned one that I could really see what everyone was talking about.

One Saturday, it was just Joshua and…

Power of the Pen!

Some people would say that the cost of silence is free. Those people are not mothers. There is always a cost. Like when your toddler is having a full on tantrum during the 2nd hour of a 14 hour trip so you give him the remaining ½ of a chocolate bar knowing full well that it will leave the worst mess on him, the car seat, the car, etc. but your sanity and that of your husbands is well worth the mess.  Or maybe you plopped junior in front of the TV…

Tips From a 2-Year Old, 10 Ways To Live a Carefree and Happy Life

1. Eat Good Food: Don’t eat food you don’t like.  Seriously, spit it out.  Gross. Push it on the floor. Demand it get taken off your plate. Don’t even look at it. Give it to the dog, she’ll love you and you’ll never eat alone. Be in the moment. Eat slowly; put your fork down, look around, chat with whoever chooses to sit near you… dog, cat, friend...  Company is company. Eat until your satisfied, or until something flashy and exciting goes by and you…

What to Expect When Your Child May Be Getting Their Two Year Molars?

Today my youngest got to spend the day with me, he started running a low grade fever last night and acted like he didn’t feel very good.  I decided that is was best to keep him home from daycare so that he could get some extra rest while I monitored his fever.  It was nice being able to spend some one on one time with my baby.  We enjoyed the extra snuggles and cuddles, we watched a few of his favorite shows on TV, and spent some time …

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…

Remember Cross Country USA and other old games?

For years I have been thinking about the games I used to play in elementary school. The games were grainy, and kind of slow...but that didn't matter because they were still so much fun. Then fast forward to today, I saw my brother in law watching a game on his Ipad and it wasn't until I saw a triangle appear on the screen that I realized he wasn't watching a game, he was playing a game. Technology has come so far! Our children…

Boy, the times have surely changed!

Yesterday, I found myself reminiscing. I was thinking about and appreciating my childhood, old friends and every experience good or bad. I remember going outside to play with my friends. We all had Nintendo and Sega Genesis systems, but those were only played when we had company come over who didn't have their own systems...or we had to be indoors. It wasn't as addictive as games seem to be now…

Mom’s How Old was Your Child When You Weaned Them From the Pacifier?

When I took my son to his 18 month old check up, my son was happily sucking on his pacifier when the doctor walked him.  She took it out of his mouth so that she could look into his mouth and he kept telling her that he wanted he wanted his “paci” back.  She told him that if he could ask for it,…

Barbie Has Her Head On Straight, Until My Kid Rips It Off One Day

Playing Barbies with your three year old can teach you a lot about saying what's on your mind and projecting your assertive self!

What would it be like if we all went around acting like a three year old's version of Barbie? Even though I am pretty sure we wouldn't have to look far…

Old People Depress Me

This blog entry is about the challanges of shopping with children. Sometimes I feel very horrible about not seeing the joy and wonder of my experience as a parent as others view it. What I see as frustration others see as nostalgia. Maybe I need to keep that in mind next shopping trip!…

Pregnancy Myths and Old Wives’ Tales

Since I fell pregnant about seven months ago, I have heard and pretty much collected lots of pregnancy myths and old wives’ tales, wrapped in the form of advices, from my family, relatives and friends. They meant well by telling me all those advices but somehow I don't exactly follow or believe most of them as I understand that their claims are not medically or scientifically proven. If they were true, to some degree, my Gynae herself would have informed me those advices…

The Most Difficult Conversation with a 10 year old: Why Daddy had to leave

Three years ago I made the decision to let go of the man I had spent 14 years building a life with. It was a decision I made over the course of two years; battling with myself and those close to me who saw the destruction the relationship was creating in my life and in my spirit. It was really awful in the end. But it's over, and I'm happier.

But my children are not.

In fact, for 3 years, my 10 year old son has been unhappy, frustrated, violent, ill-mannered. I have gone…

Kindergarten Coiffure

Last Friday was like any other day.  The girls came home on the bus.  They played outside until it started to get dark.  We were all tired from the long week so we decided to have pizza for dinner.  After dinner we watched a movie together, and then it was time for Hunter to go to bed.  She went to her room, put on her pajamas and brushed her teeth.  As she was leaning over to kiss us goodnight, I noticed something wrong.  She had bangs where she didn’t have them…
