Even if you drink wine regularly, you might not have a developed taste for it. Drinking box wine from your local supermarket does not mean that you know wine, but if you would like to acquire a more elevated taste for this extremely elegant and at times sophisticated beverage, the process is…

The bedtime I've imposed upon you

My son knows a lot of things: He knows how to tell time (both analogue and digital), how our hemisphere is tilted closer to the sun in the summer, that he gets a break from school through most of June-August, and (of course) he knows how important sleep is.…

Waiting for adult swim

I love watching my Mom swim. She is like a fish in the water - all clean lines and muscles in motion. I am noticeably less graceful in the water, but I can swim. My Mom made sure we had lessons at an early age and knew more than the basics.…

The bedtimes we keep

When I was little my parents let me choose one night a week to stay up an extra half-hour. I cannot tell you how crazy-special this was to me at the time, especially in the summer when I felt like the sun hadn't even gone down before I was already tucked in. Normally, I chose Friday nights, because we would watch must-see-tv together as a family and I would be able to sleep in on Saturday morning.…

What do you have to lose?

I try very hard not to lose my temper with my son. I repeat phrases in my head like "he's only six" or "he's still learning" or "will he have a memory of this moment?" but sometimes it is inevitable. I yell; he cries; he loses things.…

Establishing Rules for our Children

Hey everyone! Can you believe we are midway through July? Summer gives way to parents loosening up on some of there daily routines I thought I'd revisit one of my favorite topics, House Rules.

Rules should...

  • be tested, broken and amended accordingly. 
  • nothing should be followed blindly or set in stone.

This is part of our kids journeys as they grow up but parents, let’s make things easier on ourselves. We need to learn to establish and…

When Mommy needs a time out

Sometimes my son pushes me over the edge. It's part of his growing up - he pushes his boundaries and learns the consequences of disrespect. My patience level - like all parents - varies. There are days when I can shake it off, and then there are days when I yell.…

Why Dad needs to keep his voice down

I read a lot of studies about parenthood. A surprising number of them uncover changes that need to be made in the Mother's behavior, because either the study didn't cover Dads as well, or it saw Dad's behavior as not having a significant effect on the child.



So it was somewhat refreshing to find a study that…

Good cop; bad cop

At work, when things get rough for my team, I have to play the role of bad cop. (Or maybe it is mean cop, I am not always sure.) The point is: I sometimes have to be the tough guy to back up my team. And I am happy to take on that role. At work.…

Living by your own technology rules

Think about all the rules you have for your child's use of technology. Do you have rules around when they can use it? Rules to prevent bullying behavior? Rules around oversharing information online? Rules about the rooms of the house it can go into?



How many of those rules are ones that also apply to…

The Truth About...My Life

The Truth About...My Life

Have you ever watched Wife Swap? Or Trading Spouses? I'll admit first hand that I am addicted to these shows, no matter how trashy or ridiculous they may be. Most of the time, it makes me feel much better about how our little family runs things. It's also interesting to see all the…

Bicycling is Great Exercise and the Entire Family Can Enjoy Exercising Together

As the weather has warmed up outside, I have noticed more children and teenagers in my neighborhood outside playing and riding their bikes, scooters, or skateboards.  I have noticed that the children in our neighborhood think that they own the road and aren’t always paying attention to traffic around them.  Sometimes they will even continue riding in the middle of…

School Rules for Next School Year to Prevent a Mommy Meltdown

This school year is coming to an end and we are limping across the finish line (in some cases, literally).  Only two of my kids are in school, I can only imagine what it is going to be like when all three of them are.  Which, as my six-year-old pointed out, will only be one more school year because then the one-year-old will be in a morning program for three days a week and begin taking dance classes.  Oh, and as a bonus, my eight-year-old threw in the statement, "and you will be older then…

"My House, My Rules" - My Mother's Philosophy

I was just having a conversation with my mother today about her philosophy, "My house, My rules." I have had the privilege of being on both sides of that fence. As a kid growing up in her house, I dealt with having to live by her rules as most of us have while living with our parents. Some rules I agreed with and others I didn't, but it didn't matter if I agreed or not because I was living in herhouse with her rules. Now I'm a mother living in my own home…

The Border State Rule

When I was growing up, my Dad had a rule in our house, when you move away after college; you have to live outside a 500-mile radius of home. OK…don’t ask, but I will say

that when I eventually did move away from home, I did manage to move just

outside the 500-mile radius. The

funny thing was, as soon as I did, Daddy asked me when I was going to move

home. So much for house rules.
