A tween's perspective on bullying:

Guest Blogger Mikayla Sez: "Bullying Really Scares Me"



Bullying Really Scares Me



by Mikayla T., age 13



Bullying has to stop. It seems to start when you are a tween and then gets really bad when you are in middle school. In middle school, bullies call people names, push them around and push kids into lockers. I think bullying happens because people don’t understand why other people are different.

When you get to middle school, you start to talk more and not… Continue

Synchronized Screaming, Pooping and other Miscellany

The beauty of having more than one child is the symphonic melding of sounds that often culminates in a concert of sorts. I am talking about the daily aural landscape that is part and parcel of being a parent of more than one, specifically being the parent of twins. When you refine this scenario, clarifying that the twins in question are toddlers boys, and the fact that they have a seven-year-old sister, it becomes… Continue

Things Never Are Dull With Toddlers are they?

So as my son turns two this week, he decided to let mommy know what is ahead of me in the world of toddlerdum and well maybe "boydum" yep, that's a new word, going in my dictionary.  You never hear of little girls putting rocks in their ears or shoving things up their nose right? That just doesn't happen with girls I don't think...…

Raising a Bilingual Child: Go Ahead, You Try It!

Cool, He’s Going to be Bilingual! Well, Maybe Not.

“Oh, wie schön!” was the only thing my mom could say before she choked up and started to cry.

Those were happy tears. I had called my parents in Germany to tell them that I was pregnant. My father’s first words were: “You better teach him German.” Well, maybe it was the second thing he uttered. But he hasn’t let up reminding me about the importance of raising my son bilingually since he was born four years ago. {…

Thrifty Mama Therapy: GNO

Girls Night Out. At my age, it doesn't mean squeezing into tight dresses and hitting the clubs. Really, it means plain and simple - just the girls, and the night involves talking, eating and drinking. Last night, we had an evening planned at a new restaurant downtown, just my 6 oldest and bestest girlfriends. We had been planning it for almost 2 months. Unfortunately the day of, 2 of our girlfriends had to back out. I was bummed, but 4 of us still planned to meet at a restaurant we all love…

Laundry Hell

I have been relegated to Laundry Hell for all eternity. Or at least it seems that way. Perhaps "Hell" is not the place where I find myself. Perhaps it is a Laundry Limbo of sorts; at least with this option there is hope of future salvation. http://bit.ly/h2SqeW

Tilting at Windmills

 

The hardest thing about being a parent of special needs children is…

Wow, I can’t tell you what the hardest thing is because it keeps changing. When it was just Elliott with her RAD, there was a small chance I could keep all the balls in the air. I had a fairly good handle on her current issues and how she was handling them. She has made great progress over the last 10 months, but she still has her moments.

MY KINDA CRAPPY DAY

I started today too early, arising at 4:57am & it seemed to go downhill from there. Lost my patience with myself, lost my cool with my kids, screwed up a new crock-pot dinner, yada, yada, yada.  So what is the success-formula for starting your day off wrong?  'Cause we don't get do-over's. And then we try to make-up to those we afflicted with pithy statements like, "I'm sorry I'm just having a bad day" Puh-lease!  I'm wracking my brain wondering what…

Those are not toys!!!

Cardboard boxes, paycheck stubs, wires, laptops, cellphones, remote controls, shoes, drawers, paper bags, plastic bags, the strips that outline foam mats that connect together (know what I'm talking about? anybody?)

Day 2 of my first craft show

So Mom and I show up again on Sunday morning. I'm anxious and wondering if I will sell more today....and I'm guessing all the other vendors are wondering the same thing. Since I managed to make enough on Saturday to pay for my booth I'm not as obsessed today with calculations, mostly just optimistic and excited. Continue Reading

Child Modeling. Should you do it?

Last night, my husband and I caught about three minutes of the show "Toddlers and Tiaras."  There was a pretty little girl in a lot of make up, smiling and standing before a crowd, her mother proudly looking on with tears in her eyes.



"When I'm in my make up," the little girl said, "I feel pretty."



And she looked pretty.  I certainly wasn't scandalized.  It looked like any other mother / daughter activity to me.



The next shot was a teaser for the next segment, in…

Making my own baby food

So I knew before my daughter was born that I wanted to make her baby food instead of using jar food. It's healthier, more eco-friendly, cheaper (although I'm starting to question this), and tastes better. I started researching when she was about 2 months old and realized there were actually baby food makers! No more hassle of steaming and pureeing in separate machines. Continue

Frozen Breast Milk to the Rescue

Two months ago I was sick with the flu including a high fever for several days. Although weak and not eating very much, I was still able to breastfeed my five month old twice a day and then I supplemented the rest of her feedings with milk I had stored in the freezer.

Thanks for the advice!

Thanks for all the advice! My schedule has always been to give her a bath at around 7, then nurse, then bed by 8. I tried moving it up earlier but she would end up fussing and falling asleep even later. My pediatrician said to feed her 3 solid meals a day and nurse in between. Continue Reading

Where are all the people?

So it is day 1 of my very first craft show and my booth is all set up....only 15 minutes past start time. A few people start walking by and looking at my items. It takes awhile before my mom and I realize these are all fellow vendors. Hmmm....will people who came here to MAKE money SPEND money too? Well, if they're anything like us, it's a definite YES. My mom is already scoping it out, Continue…
