With the holidays approaching and Thanksgiving right around the corner, this is a great time to teach our children how to be thankful. When I first became a parent, I thought my child would learn with ease how to not only say “thank you” but also be thankful. Ahem…I have to say, it didn’t seem to come as easy as I thought it should. When I began to hear myself repeating “Say, thank you” or “What do we say?” after someone would give my daughter a gift or do a nice act for her, I…Continue

Hello!!! Happy Thursday to you! I hope everyone is finding themselves enjoying this beautiful day. I love FALL. I have said it before and I will say it again, I LOVE FALL!!! The weather here is still a bit warm in the afternoon, but oh!!! the mornings are just perfect, cool and crisp. Even the girls walk outside to go to school and say, "It's beautiful today or I like the cool air."
While driving my 4 year old to preschool this morning she said something…

I am sitting here watching my sweet little 4 year old sleep. She is home sick from school. She woke up in the middle of the night not feeling well, then had an upset belly this morning. I'm sure most parents feel this way when their little one's don't feel well. It's such a helpless feeling. Even though we give all the snuggles and love we can, sometimes they still feel terrible. It is heartbreaking to watch your child be in any sort of discomfort.

While each stage of parenthood has with it a level of excitement, I can't help but to be a little sad watching the girls grow. Oh, and growing so fast they are!!! When we came home from the pool today we had some much needed quiet and down time. Mostly we were hoping Sofia would nap. It never happened though. Boy, does that little one have endless energy! The girls had to choose between one hour of TV time or quiet play in their room. Of course they chose TV, shocker right? …Continue

Our vacation is coming to a close and it is starting to stir up emotions. I am sad to be leaving our family; sad to be leaving the beach house; and sad that summer break is almost over. On the other hand I am happy to be going home to my bed. Nothing is better than your own bed. I am also looking forward to a routine and the FALL weather :-)
It has been a wonderful vacation. We managed to fit a lot in during our two weeks. We frequented the beach almost…

When we were teaching our one daughter how to ride her bike without training wheels we all learned a lesson. When life pushes you down, you get back up and try again. Learning to ride a bike can be scary, frustrating and difficult. Once you learn though, it is a life time task. You never forget how to pedal your feet and keep your balance. Don't we wish that was true for other aspects of our lives? It feels like when something bad happens, we easily lose our "balance." We fall…Continue

Life is hard…we all know it. We all live it every day. If your life is not what you want it to be then it is up to YOU to change it. Right??? I think so. Yes, we all need help from time to time, but no one is really going to do the nitty gritty hard work but yourself.
Life is unfair too. We learn that from the very beginning. I always hear parents telling their children to play fair (I do it myself), but then I think…well, there are no promises that…
