Join Us For An Amazing New Experience That Could Transform Education!

     My life has been filled with chaos, joy, grandchildren, children, animals, students, writing intermingled with walks along the beach and hikes through the mountains. None of this has turned my life upside down like my latest endeavor! We have a wonderful conference in its 2nd year coming up this April in Minneapolis, MN. It is designed to bring creatives (musicians, artists and writers) together with brain experts and educators. I can't believe how amazing this…

Let me explain: Sometimes when I talk to other parents, they will tell me about the shows they or their children watch. And I have NO IDEA what they are talking about. I watch TV, but evidently, I don't watch what they are watching. I try to remember the…

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

Bad mom days



If your kids are past infancy and you've never had a bad mom day, I can't be friends with you. I just can't. It will never work. You are not from this planet, and I think it's best for my kids if I don't bring extra terrestrials around.

 I mean every sane person has a bad mom day.

If you're here on earth, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Sometimes it starts from the moment you wake up. Other times if creeps up on you around noon. Everything everyone is saying is…

How cheap lead to luxury. "No poo" and a change in perspective.

                


                                 
                                                   Saving money saved my hair. 


I'm dead serious.  My hair had been bleached, colored, and over processed.  It was in terrible condition. I didn't have the money to go out and buy a bunch of products, so I did what most girls to and took to pinterest. I somehow stumbled upon the 'no poo" pins and…

Key to Your Child’s Heart

As children gradually grow, they learn to recognize and understand a particular situation and emotions related to it. They learn the difference between anger and frustration and put words to explain what they are feeling inside. Children must learn to recognize what’s going on in their mind and what they feel inside their heart. This proper equilibrium will help children in dealing with different situations.

Your baby is nothing like my baby

I have three friends from college who live nearby and had babies around the same time as me. Three of us delivered the same week (one was checking out of the same hospital and was two rooms away the day I checked in) and the fourth delivered a few weeks later.

We had two girls and two…

Is eating out a luxury if you have a baby?

Me and my husband, we love to eat! :-D We love to cook (well, my husband does, I just bake), we love to go out for a delicious dinner and when choosing a travel destination, good food is a must.

Please Brand Me Now!!!

Branding.

Argh.  Sooo challenging...and so permanent.  It needs to be just right.

Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.  But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?

You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field?  Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…

September edition of the name game

On August 12, my mom sent me a seemingly random text message that said:
