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…

Bye Bye Binky: A Guide to Letting Go

IMG_9030

Today was an emotional day that has been in the works for weeks.  Today we said goodbye to my three year old’s pacifier, which he referred to as “Me-Me”.  This was not a new concept to me as he is my third child, but still as emotional as the first.

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.…

Organize Something Today!

I am a stay at home Mom to three amazing little ones and I now have a successful blog and YouTube channel!

I started organizing my home, just 15 minutes a day, and the results were magical!  Now, just a few years later my home and life are in order and I turned my passion for organizing into a…

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…

Little hearts & curious minds

It's not surprising to see kids speak their mind, ask questions until convinced and have a say in everything that's happening around. We all agree technology rules the world today and kids being so smartly adapting to it is no wonder a boon in a true sense.

Just Hang On.

It's safe to say that becoming a parent changes things; specifically a marriage. Nine years together, four years married, and two kids later. We argue more than we should, about things that we shouldn't. We go to bed angry at times. A whole day can pass without kissing or hugging. And somehow, we don't have a real conversation for days. But, in the midst of the overflowing laundry, the oatmeal stained faces, the abundance of toys, and the daily tantrums--I still see you & I need you to…

The Rewards of Parenting.

Ever since March 30, 2013 at 12:56pm, our world completely changed. Ella, our first child, had entered the world and has been our little firecracker ever since. I remember having such a hard time in those first few weeks home from the hospital. One of the recurring questions in my mind, and often whispered out loud to myself was, "what the hell did I get myself into, how am I gonna do this??" I thought I was prepared. I truly believed that besides the typical sleepless nights that came with…
