I Saw the Sign: Teaching Toddlers Sign Language

Communication. At 28 years old, it's a skill I still haven't even fully developed yet. To expect a baby or toddler to master a skill that most adults haven't completely grasped yet is a recipe for disappointment. In my experience, most tantrums are caused by a toddler feeling like their wants and needs are going unheard. Since the vocabulary of wee ones is still limited, teaching our toddler sign language has saved us (at least several) arm flailing, back arching, high-pitched screeching…

Should I tell my tween about the tooth fairy and friends?

It all started with the Tooth Fairy.

I am lousy at playing the part.

I forget to put the money underneath her pillow.

My latest scene involved me leaving the tooth, which was in a sandwich bag, in the laundry room!

Since when does the Tooth Fairy do laundry? A girl can wish...

This latest spectacle got me to thinking about, not only the Tooth Fairy, but the Tooth Fairy's other friends. You know them, Santa Clause, and…

Our Halloweekend!

Lions, Danny Zuko, Donkeys, Pumpkins, Oh My?? Yes... that's what our Halloween holiday consisted of; a little bit of this and a WHOLE lot of that! I have always loved Halloween as a little girl.

Give Your Child the Gift of Gratitude

Focusing on the positive boosts body, mind, and spirit. It gives us energy, inspires us, and transforms us. In a nutshell, it provides life with meaning by thinking of life as…

5 reasons why I chose parallel parenting over co-parenting

We are not those folks.

Those folks who are divorced, have kids and that can actually mumble a "hello" to each other and actually mean it. 

Those folks who are divorced, remarried and invite each other over to the kids birthday parties. 

We are not those folks. 

What happens when you are divorced with kids and must have a relationship with your…

5 Parental Frustrations

Originally posted at Just Playing House.

When you become a parent you expect there will be moments that drive you batty. I have to admit, these are 5 parental frustrations I never expected. Though, I'm guessing they are pretty universal.

  1. Where are your shoes? - Every day I ask this question at least twice! They never remember where they took them off. And somehow the shoes end up being in two…

The democratic family

I often try to involve my son in our family decisions: What do you want to do this weekend?, What do you think we should do about dinner tonight? and even What do you like about this piece of furniture? are all questions that I have asked him within the past week. I ask him about what he wants to eat for lunch while grocery shopping, and I haven't been allowed to choose his clothes since he was three and started to do…

If you…

Pleasing the powerful parent

Who is the more powerful parent in your household?

Yes, yes, parenthood should be an equal partnership between two people, but we all know the truth: One parent in the household simply ends up doing more. And that parent is the one who may be influencing their child's self esteem the most.…

Swear Words at School

Originally posted at www.justplayinghouse.com.

On the way home from school, Cameron (7) told me the kids in his class were saying a bad word. Apparently it was in a song they were singing. He told me they just kept saying it, even though he told them they shouldn't say it. They just wouldn't listen to him.

My first thought? Swear words at school. I knew this would happen at some point. I'm really not too surprised.…

Elijah and the Ninja Skills

Around Lape Haven, we kind of love silly. We thrive on imagination and creativity. We choose birthday party themes based on how costume-friendly they are. (We really do.)

But I have to say, sometimes, I am still amazed at how quirky my kids can be. They provide me with hours of…
