Me to son: Did you pick up all the LEGOs off your floor?

Son to me: Yes.

Me to son: Really?…

Risks now; calmness later

Over the holiday break, I had many opportunities to listen to my husband and son play. This, to my ears, consists of repetitive cycle of squealing, tickling, help-me, going-back-for-more, jumping, breathless fun, that I fully admit I don't entirely understand.…

Hiding the toys after the holiday

I can't stop anyone in my family from buying my son toys. This includes myself. It's fun to give gifts and see children's little faces light up with joy and wonder and happiness that they have unwrapped a toy and not a sweater.…

The time I spend with you

"Hey, Mom, do you want to play a game with me?"



That is what my son says almost every weekend. He usually asks when I am in the middle of something else, and well before he is allowed to play with his iPad.…

The social network you create for yourself

My son and I are at the park and we've hit it at just the right time - there are about 30 other children already there. My son's face lights up and he spends the next hour running all over the playground with other children and eventually plays catch with a few of them. By the time he is ready to go home, he is sweaty and exhausted and can't stop smiling.…

Working hard for the money

My son was in the loft playing office.



Even if he hadn't told me this several times, I would have been able to figure it out based on the number of "important meetings" and "back-to-back" phone calls he said he had. At some point he told me his…

Playground versus Screentime

Here's the problem:



When I was young, I was sent outside to play with my friends. We lived in a very safe neighborhood with two parks nearby and there were always other children playing outside.…

Pillow Fort, Unicorn Ride plus other Make Believe Adventures.​

UPDATE: Ellie is currently hooked with Boss Baby.

It was a relief! We memorized both songs and lines in Moana and even with eyes closed we know the scenes by heart. Who wouldn’t? We watched Moana and Maui for more than 100 times already.Now that Ellie is turning two, she can easily pick up words and phrases and one of the developments that we noticed is that she is into pretend play and make-believe. Just like Tim (the young boy in Boss Baby). In the story, Tim has a great imagination…

A Valid Way to Find More Mom Friends

Are you a mom who wishes she had more mom friends? I was too, until I found mom.life – an app just for moms. I was feeling pretty lonely as my husband works long, tiring hours about an hour away. I was pregnant when I first found this app. It used to be known as Preggie, but with a new app design came a new name - and so was born Mom.Life.

I really had nobody to really talk to as a mom. I didn’t…

Men at play

I do not understand the way my husband and son play together.



Yes, I have read the research around the importance of fathers and the way they play with their children. I understand that fathers encourage their children to take more risks and explore the world. I also understand how important it is for…

No time like the present

My son is doing his math homework on the computer. Today's lesson centers on the clock. He dutifully types in the time that each clock face represents. Since he is pretty good at this, he whizzes through all the questions.…

Today, I stepped on a LEGO

At least twice a month, I step on a LEGO. I look upon it as an exercise to hurt myself and not curse aloud.…

Yup, I'm sure.…

Learning how to play at recess

Every evening at dinner I like to ask my son what he did at school. If I am lucky, I will ask the specific enough question to get him to tell me about an actual event that happened (instead of getting the "I don't know" or "it was good" stock answer). I love it when he tells me about his day, and it is worth it to figure out the right series of questions to get him to talk about it - suddenly a whole world of information will come out of…

Toddlympics

I had no idea the 2016 Summer Olympics would affect our life so greatly. Now I’m only being slightly facetious here. I love the Olympics and find myself a little lost now that I don’t have a new series of events to cheer for every night. Maybe I’ll get into bed before 1am now. Yeah right.

How…

You gotta know when to push them...

My son gets a weekly allowance and dutifully puts the money into one of his jars. We've used the money in his Give jar a few times for donations to his school and other causes that he chooses. It's the Save and Spend jars that I am still teaching him to work with.…

The way we play

My brother recently texted me a photo of a wooden critter playset and asked if I had something similar to that when I was little. I affirmed for him that I was the proud owner of many Sylvanian Families: Skunks, foxes, bears, squirrels - I had them all (thanks, Mom!). I adored these woodland, hard-working creatures and their…
