I love Sesame Street

Whenever I think I am focused on a project at work or chore around the house, there is a soundtrack playing in my head. The soundtrack used to be my favorite songs or the last song I heard playing on the radio. As a parent, this playlist has been replaced with children's songs and most of them come from Sesame Street.…

Where The Oregon Trail has lead us: Educational video games

Many wagons fail to make it all the way to Oregon...

I played The Oregon Trail in school. That doesn't make me feel old, because that game is still going - see here. I learned lots of stuff from playing the game, like family members could die from measles. Or typhoid. Or…

Intentional Time

A year ago, when I first started envisioning my time home, it looked very much like now- more time to write, to read books without having to create lessons for extra digestion; time to create with my wee people, and most importantly time to pause, breathe, and be in the moment. Time as a working mother was going just too fast. The…

What age did you introduce your child to technology?

I remember the evening very clearly: We were out with my in-laws at a very popular Chinese food chain restaurant. It was packed with people and from the time we arrived until the time we got our food, it took almost two hours.

And my son, who was only about 22 months old at the time, was quiet and contented when the food finally arrived - all because he was playing an…

A box of crayons

As I was cleaning out my granddaughters craft area, I noticed a new box of crayons tucked in the back of the drawer.  I could not resist opening it up and looking at all of the bright colors and the…

Family dinnertime: Mom, what's for dinner?

Do you eat dinner together as a family every night? No? That's OK.

Lots of families don't have the time or ability to have the entire family sit down and eat dinner, and it is causing them guilt. This post by Abigail Carroll suggests that when it comes to dinner, "perhaps it's…

Would you hand your child $300? No? Then keep your phone to yourself

I think about the number of times I have thoughtlessly handed over my phone to my son. Normally, I think about the amount of screen time he has had that day and his overall behavior, but I rarely think about the fact that I am handing over an expensive piece of equipment to a child.

And, I am sure that many parents don't think about it either, which is why…

Use Your Local Library as a Resource for Preschool Teaching Tools

Today I took my son to visit the local library for the very first time.  I wasn’t sure what to expect because the library close to our house is fairly small.  When we went into the library, I was amazed by the amount of books and activities that our local library has to offer the children.  Every week our library has a scheduled…

Miley Cyrus VMA Performance is Inappropriate For Prime Time Television When Children Are Likely Watching TV

Miley Cyrus Seeks The Wrong Attention

I didn’t get a chance to watch the VMA award shows on T.V. a few nights ago but I have seen clips of Miley Cyrus’s big performance.  As a mom, I am outraged and feel as if this type of content shouldn’t be on prime time television.  After all, many families…

No Rest for the Weary

With summer camps ending, I have become the unofficial director of "Camp Mama", who's expected to have full-day schedules of wild and exciting adventures planned for each and every day.  Thus, my time for writing even something as small as a to-do list has become pretty much non-existent.  The following is what I…

There are days I look forward to cleaning!

Ah, some me time! I'm not hanging out in my garden, sprucing up, checking out what's growing and planting more seeds which seems to have become my norm. I'm not taking a trip to the mall, which used to be my norm. Nope! I was cleaning up my house. Can you believe cleaning has become "me time"? I'm lovin' it!



My husband took the kids to a graduation…

First Chapter Reveal: Rowena and the Dark Lord, by Melodie Campbell (comic fantasy, time travel)

Dark magic…dark passions….

When Rowena is abducted from Arizona and taken back to medieval Land’s End, one thing is clear: she must learn to control her powers of magic. It isn’t easy being a modern girl in an archaic land, and when Rowena accidently conjures up a Roman Legion in mid-battle, Land’s End is on the brink of a…

But I Wanted Wiener Wraps and Tator Tots!!

My initiation into the mom scene was a bit different than most.  It wasn’t until after I had spent a few years helping to raise my step-kids that my son was born.  I wasn’t going to be able to bond with these kids while changing diapers or teaching them their ABC’s or snuggling with them at bedtime.  This was…

How to Make Time Out an Effective Way to Modify Your Child’s Unwanted Behaviors

My son stayed home with me again today so that he could continue to heal and so that I could make sure that he was fever free before sending him back to daycare.  He acts like he is feeling much better today and his fever finally broke last night.  Thank goodness, I don’t like it when my baby doesn’t feel…
