Life Changes I Wish I’d Made Sooner

A single-lane highway with no exits. As far as I was concerned, I was headed in the same direction, with no…

3 Easy Ways to Share Nature With Your Kids This Summer

There’s something about the summer that brings out the fun in kids. Long summer days without any thought of school foster the type of carefree living children relish every year. The only bad thing about the summer is it can go by really fast. As parents, it is important to…

How Small Surprises Can Have A Big Impact

I have read many articles about how we are all trying to figure out this thing called parenting. And we can all agree that no one has it all figured out. That’s because each child is different, though they may share similar interest. I think we can all agree that at the end of the day, if we can hear our child say, “Mom, you’re the best” Then we are still winning. We are not trying to blur the lines between parenting and being our child’s homie…. And we want to make sure…

How to show your dad that you care, this Father’s Day without spending a dime

I recently visited my parents where as usual, we were all in their room one night as we gathered in conversation and having our little pow-wow, which depending on who’s in the room, can be all laughs. And on this night, it was, as my dad chimed in, out of no-where to say that he had an idea.

He asked, you…

10 Ways to be the difference in your child falling or flying

Family Sitting on Grass Near Building

I recently came upon a meme of a sad girl with the words across the chest of the tee-shirt she wore which said: She’s standing on the line between giving up and seeing how much more she can take. Powerful right? It’s loaded with the need for us as parents to make sure that this “line” is not a thin line.

It doesn’t matter if you have a 4-year old who’s being potty trained a 10-year old who’s trying to make the basketball team, a teenager who’s going…

Keeping the Fun in Learning This Summer and Making Some Extra Cash

Yay! School is officially out for the summer but let’s not forget that learning is an ongoing process by which things need to be reiterated and reinforced. We still need to reinforce what our children has learned during the last school year to create a smooth transition into the next school year. A child that stays ready doesn’t have to get ready, right?

Our time to do that is over the summer. This does not mean summer school and it doesn’t mean that you need to cancel all summer…

A "Getaway" is not always about “getting away” from something you don’t like

beach, lady, laptop

Some of the best travel experiences I have had included Las Vegas, Nevada. Yup, right here in the United States. The first time I traveled there was in 2010, on assignment during the time I spent writing for Examiner.com. It was a media assignment to cover the Floyd “Money” Mayweather and “Sugar” Shane Mosley Boxing match.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Shane Mosley was a boxing welterweight non-title super fight, in which Mayweather won by unanimous decision with two judges…

First Order of Business: Learn to do things alone. I know too well, the story of how a person waited to do the things they wanted to do, because they were waiting until other people around them were able do it as well.

I also know about what waiting for the “right person” to do those things with, sound like. Granted, the right…

Best Advice I can Give To A Someone Who Is Considering Blogging As a Career Or Side Job

apple device, blur, blurry

First, you must like to write, because that is what blogging entails: While you don’t have to be an author or a novelist, you do have to desire writing to some degree. I have been approached by many people who inquire about getting a blog started, in which they say, “I was thinking about doing some blogging. How do you “get into it?”” The first question I usually ask them is if they love or like to write, because at that point…

How Your Unsolicited Public Relations Role Can Have Negative Impact In Your Child’s Life

My son will be turning 7-years old in December. I am guilty of looking at him sometimes and only seeing my precious little toddler who needs his mother to hold his hand in everything he does. I cringe when he swings too high on the swing set, for fear of him falling. My heart beats a bit faster when he charges across the Monkey Bars, what if he misses a step? What if he scrapes his knee? What if he bumps his head?…

Why I Decided To Dress up for my 40th Birthday and Where I shopped for the perfect Costume

I know… I know. Last year, I said I was done. I said that I was going to put all this costume stuff to rest, after I dressed up as the Nutcracker, for my son’s Christmas lunch and I was the only parent to do so. I thought I put the nail in the coffin when I did it, as I thought to myself, it may be time to close that book.

However, my son’s response to the DIY costume was priceless. Together, in the past, we have also done Captain America, American Dream, Spider- Man/Woman, Black…
