Redesigning the school year

My son has caught me in a technicality.



The problem is that I told him camp lasted all summer but he knows that summer lasts through most of September. I failed to tell him the difference between "school summer" and "seasonal summer."…

Dear Mom, send more underwear

When I was a little girl, I went to Girl Scout camp. I loved it all. I loved the time we spent in the pool every day, that we went canoeing, that we sang songs around the bonfire and sleeping in the tents in the woods.…

Back to School Organization

Back to #School #Organization from @MomTattles #B2S #DIY Monday morning, my Facebook feed was filled with proud parents as their children started their first day of school. By 2pm, those enthusiastic statuses looked a little uglier, grimmer, and much more stress filled. A new school year involves lots of moving parts, but what are some of the ways you and your family can make back-to-school an organized…

Magic Beans

It's hot.



It's like, really, uncomfortably hot outside right now. It's the kind of hot that the pool can't even touch.

It's the kind of hot that makes me think of.... watermelon, limes, ice cold lemonade, shaved ice and pinto beans.…

Drinking from the garden hose

Every summer morning, my brother and I would look at the thermometer near the kitchen door. If the thermometer said it was 74 degrees outside, then we were allowed to wear shorts. It was a big deal.…

10 Fun Summer Activities for Kids

10 Fun Summer Activities for Kids

I walked into a store today to pick up a picture frame and other nicknacks. After gathering my items and getting in line, an older lady looked down at my children (who were bouncing around like a couple of sugar-high human jumping jacks) and said, “I have two just like that. Well, my son has two just like that. I really think they should just have school all year round. Being out for the summer…

DIY Luau Invitations

DIY Luau Invites

This year I am helping to organize our class reunion.  Anyone who has done this can attest to the amount of work it takes (not to mention time, money, and energy).  One of the easiest parts for us was coming up with a theme.  Since we scheduled it for late summer we knew we wanted a more casual and fun theme so we decided on a luau BBQ.

While we have done electronic invitations already, some of our classmates expressed that they would like to receive paper…

It's the first day of Summer, time for Summertime play

What else is open year round, lets the kids tire themselves out and is totally FREE? Kids get to run wild, make friends and get a feeling of independence. Meanwhile they're oblivious to the fact that we're actually watching their every move. After all, for a semi helicopter mom like me, who used to…

10 Reasons You Should Take Your Kids to an Amusement Park This Summer

           When weighing the pros and cons of yet another costly summer activity, we as adults tend to focus on the mature things. How much is this gonna cost? Can I get the time off work? Is it educational for the kids? Will this provide too much structure, not enough structure, build relationships, promote independence, increase physical exercise, allow for creativity, encourage teamwork, stimulate without over-stimulating, etc., etc., etc.

            But, what if we…

I'm not a happy camper

When I was a Girl Scout, my parents let me go to camps over the summer. Lots of camps. There was day camp and teddy bear camp, dance camp and biking camp and more. And camping was fun: We earned badges, made s'mores, sang dirty songs, made new friends and slept in very nice tents.



But if someone would ask me…

Tears at Camp…and Not From My Child:

Yes, I was that mom that could barely get enough strength to leave camp this morning and get on with my day.  The one who had tears in her eyes, the one whose heart you could hear pounding and the mom who looked sad and mournful.  I know what you are thinking.  How could I be mourning my new found freedom of having three kids in camp?  Why wasn’t I shouting “Hooray” and celebrating my day ahead sans kids?
