     Mandalas are wonderful. Our Universe is a giant mandala and I have discovered over the years the many benefits of painting or coloring mandalas either simply or in a complicated fashion. The benefits seem to be amazing and long lasting no matter what road you take. So I started using mandalas with children and it helps them focus, de-stress and relax very quickly. In this day and age of pressure and fast paced…

Mommy - More than just a Name

Being a mom means lots of different things. As a mom you are responsible for other beings. You have someone else to take care of, provide for, teach about life, and protect. We are the ones who give hugs and cuddles, wipe away tears and give words of encouragement. We are housekeepers and…

How Parents’ Attention could help Children to become better human

I have met a large number of parents who complaint about lot of negative activities of their children such as weak in studies, disobedient, disloyal with studies, spend more time at computer and taking drugs etc.

There could be many ways to improve the behavior of kids or teens but in opinion, there is no alternative of parents’ appropriate attention towards their kids to make them a perfect human being.

First of all parents should have to spend more time with their kids and…

A FEW THOUGHTS ON TWO

It’s hard to believe our twins are already two. I have been eagerly watching them grow and hit developmental milestones, yet the graduation from baby to toddler is paired with feelings of sadness and worry. My babies are grown and it’s happening fast. Just as it did with Thomas. Days…

Valentine's Day Honesty

I'm annoyed with Valentines day. It just is too dramatic for my liking. The worst part is that it's dramatic in multiple ways. Whether a person expects a thoughtful gift and high level romance or the HATE VALENTINES DAY, IT'S A HALLMARK HOLIDAY.. blah blah person.. Or that you are single 364 days out the year. Yet if on Valentines day you don't have a date, it's some how the worst thing ever?

If you are only affectionate or thoughtful to your spouse  3 days a year. (Valentine's…

The next generation of parents

My husband once shared an interesting observation about our generation's way of parenting. He said that we tend to make changes for our children based off what we didn't like about our own childhoods:…

Wrap that baby up in a box

The biggest shock after having our son is that after four days the hospital was letting us take him home.



Despite the baby prep classes and recovery time from my C-section and the video the nurses insisted that we watched, it seemed really soon. As in: We don't know what we are doing yet - are you sure you…

Over the river and through the woods (or just the next town over)

My son likes to tell me that when he grows up he is going to get a house about a block or two away and he and his wife will ride their bikes over every day to eat dinner with us. And although I am not sure what his future wife will think of that plan, it sounds perfectly reasonable to me. I would never prevent my son from moving away from me, but I would be thrilled to have him within easy visiting range in adulthood.…

Advice from your parents

When I left the family nest to get settled into my first job, my Mom gave me some advice. She told me some things about my paycheck and finances, she gave me a few words of wisdom when dealing with my coworkers and when I got frustrated with that job, she told me to stick with it until I found something new.…

How to Take Better Pictures of Your Kids

Over the last few months, I have had several different people ask me if I’m a photographer, as in a “professional photographer.”

That’s rather flattering because, no, I’m not. I’m a mom with a nice camera who loves to take pictures of her children, and while I have been really…

When mom and dad are your roommates

I have returned to my Mother's nest twice in my life. The first time was right after college, when I stayed there for three months to search for my first job. The second time was when job situations caused me to live apart from my husband and I was pregnant and no one wanted me living on my own. I was fortunate that both times my Mom and Step-Dad were there to take me in and take care of me.…

Just Go Already

go there

While spending some time wandering on the internet, I came across this picture on Mseffie.com. At first glance, I noticed that they are using scrabble pieces and a globe to get their message across. Cute. Artsy. I really enjoy the antique effect they used to bring the picture together. However, before I could click on to another page, the message caught my attention again. Rather than the letters that spelled "Go There," I saw "Just Go Already!" 

How many times have…
