How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

Will you remember this?

I remember being eight. I remember liking being eight. It was fun - no responsibilities and lots of time outside with friends and I made relatively few decisions. My Mom and Dad made sure my life was full and wonderful.…

Mom-Time and Me-Time at the Same Time!

When you become a parent, you dedicate your entire life to caring for another life. Quickly, you learn the importance of putting others needs before your own. You happily give them all of your time, your space, your love, and sometimes your food (when they get a bit older), amongst many other things. You knew going into this that you would be dedicating your whole self to this little life you are bringing into the world. While that is an admirable…

Learning to moderate your own screentime

My son loses screentime when he breaks one of our family rules. This is a consequence that he is aware of - if you were to ask him about it now, he would recite it. But it doesn't make the punishment any easier to accept; he hates losing his screentime.…

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.…

I didn't know there was such a thing as time-ins

When I was in elementary school, there was a boy in my class named Tommy who was sent to the corner for a time out at least once a day. Sometimes it was multiple times a day. It got to the point at which my friends and I discussed it and decided that Tommy probably liked being in the corner and all the extra attention and how annoying it was that the teacher didn't notice and come up with a better punishment for his classroom…

An excuse to hold more family movie nights

I love when we have a family movie night. There is the popcorn, the curling up together on the couch and the ability to pause the movie when someone needs a drink refill or has to use the bathroom.…

Finding friend time again

I'm a little bummed. I got a text from a faraway friend who is going to be in my city next week, but it happens to be on a day I will not be around. It is one of those spontaneous meetings that just didn't work out and I am trying to take comfort in the fact that I will see her again in a few months for our twice-a-year gals getaway.…

Switching between work and family

I've talked before about how my brain is compartmentalized. I have a hard time moving between work and family life without a transition period in between (which is why I've been able to make my peace with traffic).…

Sex comes with so many different feelings and emotions for different people.

The parent you prefer

Like many mothers before me, I have always assumed that my son would have a few years of devotedly following me around before deciding that he wanted to be just like his wonderful Daddy, and then he would start following him around all the time. And, for the most part, this has started to happen: My little guy has started to decline time with me in favor of hanging out more frequently with my husband.…

Spending time with the one you love

My husband and I try to have lunch together at least once a week. He and I are fortunate enough to work only a few blocks apart, and that Tuesday lunch is a treat. It is wonderful to see him in the middle of a busy working day.…

new books that would make a great addition to any child's library

I believe its VERY important to have some sort of library for your child. By the time I was expecting my first child I  owned about 25 children's books waiting for the mind to explore.
Books like this board book from Penguin Random House book publisher,…

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.…

The 15-minute mile

Something very silly occurred to me the other day, as I was thinking about how I don't make enough time in my day for exercise. My problem is that I have been looking at my schedule for a large block of time, but the truth is I don't need that. I just need 15 minutes.…

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.…
