Bed time at my house. (A little late)



For now, I'd say bedtime at our house is pretty calm. I know that will all change once Oslo arrives, though. So I'm really enjoying these last couple of months of easy nights.



We have a pretty basic routine.  This wasn't always the case.  Getting my son to bed was such a hassle until the past couple of years.  But now, finally we have a routine that he actually enjoys!

Taking a page out of a millennial's book

A few weeks ago, my son and I went through his bookshelf. We pulled out all the books that he identified as "baby books," and ones that he didn't want to read. My little guy can read lots of words by himself now, and although he hasn't moved on to reading himself full books yet, I want his shelves to be ready for him. So, we said good-bye to the "I Love Daddy Because" or "Count to 10" books and took them to our second-hand…

Reading books - the paper kind - every day

Like lots of families, we are purging the massive amount of toys from our household this summer. (Seriously...why does my son have so many cars?) We go through his bins, his closet and his toy trunk, and he identifies the items that he no longer wants to play with so they can go "to other children that would probably like them."…

Technology Orphans

We've all heard the expression 'football widow', but have you heard of a 'technology orphan'? I use this term to describe children who do everything they can to get their parent's attention while the parent has their nose stuck in their smartphone. 

I may be a grandmother of five, but do get it.  I am guilty of reading a book, playing a game, or texting (or all three) on my phone while watching TV. And I see nothing wrong with occupying yourself on the phone while waiting in a line or…

Word Crimes

Weird Al is suddenly back in the spotlight, and he is exactly as ridiculous as I remember him being as a child. I thttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Gv0H-vPoDchink I know the lyrics from his Micheal Jackson parodies better than I know the originals, and there have been times when "Eat It" has gone through my head, while begging the kids to eat dinner. Just open up your mouth and FEED it. I will admit that I actually have one of Weird Al's cassettes lying around here somewhere. I'm…

The Importance of Story Time

When you were a child, do you remember having story time with mom and dad? Grabbing your favorite bedtime story from the bookshelf, curling up under the blanket and turning off all the lights except the lamp next to you. Anything was possible then. It was your chance to visit new and exciting worlds,…

Sorry, Mom: Your baby cannot learn to read

We love books in our household. Before our son was born, my husband and I read each other's books to learn more about one another. And, when our son came along, we immediately started to fill his library with books we could read aloud to him.…

Judging books by their covers: YA novels for adults

I read the Harry Potter books - even though I was an adult when they came out. I loved the world that J.K. Rowling created, and enjoyed each of her novels. I know I wasn't the only one; evidently adults enjoying children's books are now a thing.…

Milk the Moment

With life constantly throwing reminders at me that my kids are, in fact, growing up (cell phones, sleepovers, bike riding to school -- EEK!), I often get swept up in the everyday craziness of just trying to keep up with it all.  Half the time they don't want to talk to me, let alone listen to me, and,…

The Reading Kingdom Review

My oldest child is seven. He currently reads on a third grade level, but his lack of interest or motivation affects his ability to understand what he reads sometimes. Maybe I push him too hard....strong maybe! He absolutely loves playing games on the computer which works out fine for me, because we have two computers in the office. So, while I'm doing work or blogging, he is on his dad's computer right across from…

Learn Why Books Are Important for Your Baby’s Development?

Babies begin to hear your voice around 16 after they are conceived.  So they begin learning how to listen while inside of the womb.  As, your babies hearing develops they will begin hearing other sounds besides their mommy’s voice and can even recognize those sounds once he or she is born.  A baby is similar to a sponge and takes in everything that he or she hears or sees, even before they are born.  If you don’t want your child to exposed to certain language or behaviors, you should…
