In our household I think about sleep a lot: Who is getting enough of it and how to get more quality sleep. I am obsessed over my own sleep as well as that of the bears I live with and help wake up in the morning.…Continue
Before our son was born, my husband and I talked about what kind of environment we wanted for him. And one of the areas we agreed on was that we wouldn't expose him to a lot of media. The decision came from information from several sources citing that media use was not good for infants.
Since that time, more research has been done, and a more complete story has…

I remember when Will was learning to talk. His first word was appropriately 'ball' as we constantly played ball with our puppy and the only toys the 10 month old liked were 'balls.' He soon said 'Dada' changing the last syllable to '-o' within a week. All he said were those two words, and a barking sound that resembled his grandparent's beagle. I remember telling Daddo, 'He's never going to say 'Momma.' But he assured me that one day he would eventually pick up more words and most likely…Continue

We've all been there, so don't worry if your child is not always an angel. Tantrums are real and happen to the nicest of children. A tantrum is defined as "an outburst or display of excited anger," and you must admit that we adults sometimes find ourselves having tantrums of our own.…Continue

My son also has an OCD…Continue

If your kids are past infancy and you've never had a bad mom day, I can't be friends with you. I just can't. It will never work. You are not from this planet, and I think it's best for my kids if I don't bring extra terrestrials around.
I mean every sane person has a bad mom day.
If you're here on earth, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Sometimes it starts from the moment you wake up. Other times if creeps up on you around noon. Everything everyone is saying is…

A toddler is essentially a child who is very mentally absorbing and physically active. He or she is in the most wonderful stage of growing up. Not only he or she knows how things go around, but also knows their interests and demands are completed and adhered to by parents. Their main motivation to be active though, according to parents, is to always keep parents on their toes. Online websites make for the best type of thing to help parents have the right kind of way to spend…Continue

As I expressed in another post, Baby Registry 911, I think video monitors are amazing*. They let you check on your little one when you don’t want to risk a meltdown and demands of “Pick me up!” However, there is one instance when I won't use my video monitor.…Continue

I remember my oldest son had a lot of problems when he was a baby with frequent upper respiratory infections, wheezing, difficulty breathing, and asthma. I never found out what triggered his asthma problems but I am assuming it is because he has sensitivity to environmental allergens. In fact, now he only has to use an inhaler when he exercises outdoors,…Continue

Over the last several weeks, I have noticed that my youngest son doesn’t like to go to bed at night. I am not sure if he is scared of the dark, terrified to be alone, dealing with separation anxiety, if he is just going through a phase where he wants to be independent, or he is afraid of “monsters” hiding under his bed or in his closet. Every night we go through the same exact routine, my youngest son will throw a fit and he will tell me that he doesn’t want to go to bed. Each night we…Continue
