** The lighting in fitting rooms is nothing short of cruel.
** My toes are sooooo ready for flip flops.
** A clean car is pretty awesome (even if only for five short minutes).
** I probably owe the car wash an apology note.
** The appetites of my children dramatically increase the moment school lets…Continue
The “Back to Sleep” campaign was introduced in the early 1990′s to help prevent babies from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). When a baby is born their heads are still soft and their skull will slowly harden over the next few months. However, laying your baby in the same position all the time places gentle pressure on the back of the skull, causing it to slowly change shape. Read the full post at …Continue
Prioritizing time as parents
By Becky Shattuck, guest blogging from “I’m going to make it (after all)” (http://becky-shattuck.blogspot.com/)
It’s been said before. Parenting is both the hardest and most rewarding job in the world. I’m a stay at home mom. I’m with my kids pretty much all day long, every day, so I can attest to that personally.
Little kids need a lot of attention. Actually, that…Continue

A couple months ago, I have finally started living the role that I thought would not be playing so soon – a full time staying-at-home-wife (and soon-to-be Mom, for the time being). I knew that this phase will eventually happen to me but I thought it would come much later.
My child knows that every night she has to go to sleep in her bed. If she wakes up in the middle of the night from a nightmare she can climb into mommy's bed for some cuddling and to chase away the monsters. Most nights when the bed routine starts she asks nonstop to sleep in mommy's bed. Well, she doesn't say it in a full sentence she just repeats "mommy's bed?" over and over and over again. On rare occasions when I just want her to fall asleep right away or I want some extra cuddling…Continue

One of my absolute favorite things to do with my kids is to read to them. Since I happen to have a borderline obsession with children's books, I get absolutely giddy when they want to share in my love of literature. That's why the bedtime story is one of my most treasured times of the day -- that is, until one of my twins decides to moon me right in the freakin' middle of…Continue

Let me start out by saying that I'm in no way claiming to be super mom or that I have it all together because I don't.
I have however, found an idea that works for our bedtime routine. I thought it might be helpful for other parents who also struggle with the challenge of wanting to end your…Continue

** I like electricity.
** Mondays are like a zit on your chin that won't go away.
** Politics are so freaking political.
** My kids could be drawing on their walls with Sharpies at bedtime, but as long as they stay in their rooms, I really wouldn't care.
** Nothing makes you prouder than your son yelling from the…Continue

We generally struggle to find activities that will occupy the kids during church services on Sunday. I lug a large tote bag filled with different items each week and pray that we can keep them entertained enough for me to actually listen during the meeting.…Continue

My son is a boy's boy, a rough and tumble kid. He likes football, plays baseball, watches racing. He doesn't hold hands with mom much anymore, and he only says "I love you" at night.
So that's why I owe a big debt of gratitude to "Wallace and Gromit."
I don't know if you've seen this British series, but my kids love it. I think it's just okay - but I'll admit, it's growing on me.
There are "Wallace and Gromit" movies and "Wallace and Gromit" shorts, and they all revolve…Continue

In case you’re wondering why I look a little taller today, it’s because I’m standing on my mommy soap box. Check out Mommy DIY if you don’t want to read my statement, otherwise, read on.
I want to be a good mom, I really do, but I have no idea what I am doing! While I was pregnant I studied parenting literature, questioned other moms, and prepared myself for baby. Lately, people just tell me what to do when I’m…Continue

Each day that I walk home from Aliya's bus stop I chat with one of my neighbors who also has a child that rides the bus with her. We basically share our thoughts on general things like life, kids and whatever we can think of for our five minute catch up as we walk home.
I work from home and I didn't have the previous day scheduled to work so me being my Martha Stewart self (I like to think so) kept myself busy. I told her how I organized Ayanna's entire closet before she came home…Continue

Can someone please explain to me what 'quality time' is? I hear a lot about it, and hear that sometimes it's not the quantity of time that you spend with your kids but the quality of the time spent that is what matters most. It seriously makes me wonder what the hell 'quality time' is.
Take our recent evenings, for instance. My kids and I have found the TV show 'Sliders' on Netflix's instant watch, and we've spent the last 3…
