My son and I are in the bookstore. (We love the bookstore.) He is happily wandering the aisles when he comes across an entire shelf of Goosebumps books. "Mom, I am going to need a few minutes to check these out," he says.…Continue

My husband and I are smart about different areas of life. I've always been happy about that, because I think we round each other out nicely - I know stuff he doesn't know and vice versa. I remembered being elated about our intelligence balance when we had our son, because I imagined all the various ways we could teach him what we knew.…Continue

Everybody is accessible ALL the time now. Most of the time, this is a wonderful thing. My car breaks down? No problem! I just call for a tow truck on my cell. Late for my dinner engagement? No worries; I’ll just shoot them a text message. However, there are those moments (and I know you know what I’m…Continue

As mentioned before in this blog, my Mom told me that my job was to be a good student. She expected me to make excellent grades, and she was clear on her expectations.

When we first started to play this game we were confused. The instructions were simple but I wasn't sure if I read it correctly because we just breezed through the first few puzzles. We were left wondering where the challenge was.

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…Continue

I’ve talked about how sensitive my daughter is before, but she’s also very intellegent. They say the smarter you are the crazier you are. I think it’s true in her situation...
