The ways we first learn to sleep

I have always considered myself fortunate that my son was such an easy baby. He was a good eater, he was not really a crier and (most importantly to a new parent) he was a good sleeper. I wasn't sure how I ended up so lucky, but I definitely enjoyed it.In fact, I've enjoyed every age my son has been (even ferocious three), and I've liked learning about all the…See More

The history you could be reading

I like history. I listen to a history podcast and read a lot of historical fiction. I used to watch a lot of shows about history as well. From time to time I'll invite my son to watch a history program with me, and I wonder how truly interested he is in history (versus just wants to watch TV with me.)I've noticed that his school doesn't focus a lot on…See More

The days you are bored

Sometimes I watch my son play in his room. (This generally works out well when he doesn't know that I am there.) I watch him build cities, assemble insane racetracks and create his own card games. I love seeing him come up with his own stuff to do.My son has plenty of toys, books and activities to fill his time. And he still has times of boredom. Like most…See More

Keeping tabs on the teens

For our vacation this year, we decided to give our son some additional independence. Instead of enrolling him in a kids club at the resort we stayed in, we gave him some additional boundaries and let him have his freedom.And we were all rewarded for it. My son was so happy about his independence, and spent lots of time making new friends and enjoying…See More

The changes to Dad's brain

My husband is a wonderful father to our son. He is a good playmate, encourages our son to try new things and is very patient. I love him for all of these things. I loved him for the man he was before we had our child. And, while the BC and AC (before child and after child) version of my husband is basically the same guy, I have noticed some changes in him along the journey through parenthood.…See More

Understanding kindness in children

My son is in cub scouts. Since my husband was in scouts and I am a former Girl Scout, we all enjoy getting involved in the pack activities. I like that there are always things to do with the pack, and we are always looking for ways to make it even better for the kids.One of the key features of being a scout is learning (and understanding) the 12 traits…See More

Following the college money

I have a few memories of going on several tours once I picked my university. There was the initial tour - the one that sealed the deal and made me think that particular institute was the one to go to. And then, after I was accepted, there were several other tour weekends, in which I learned more about the program I was interested in and attended seminars about subjects I would need to know about before classes started in the fall.…See More

"Thanks, Tina. It is so wonderful that when you get home your son has your full attention. It is not easy with us working parents, so the time we do have to spend with our little ones truly matters!"

"Hi Lauren, this is beautiful. My son is only a year old and we make sure we spent as much time as we can with him. Both me and my husband work and he is left with the nanny at home. That's why the minute we get home, my son has our full…"

The time we have together

My son and I were talking about his summer. What I meant as a mid-summer check in, became a much larger conversation about time. You see, my son thought his summer was amazing, but it was all moving too fast for him. We talked about the adage of "time flies when you're having fun" being very true. My son wished that summer could be stretched out longer.…See More

The cost of those first years

I was in a large baby supply department store buying a gift for a friend, when I overheard this couple trying to determine what they should scan for their baby registry. They weren't sure which of the contraptions they were looking at they would actually need and which ones they could do without. They compromised by scanning in everything so they could move on to the next aisle.  I remember being that couple when my husband and I were first expecting: We had no real idea what we would need and…See More

What I learned over summer vacation

My son is thoroughly enjoying his summer vacation. And he should be. Summer is supposed to be a magical time in a young child's life. A time when the days stretch out before you and are filled with adventures. I know that we are fortunate enough to engineer a lot of the magic in my son's summers by sending him to various day camps. I also know that time spent at these camps helps him keep up his core strengths.…See More

Knowing who you are at a genetic level

I have spent countless hours reading books, taking quizzes and talking myself into trying new things to see if I like them or not. The goal is for me to know myself better. Every time I learn something new about myself, I am a little happier because making long-term decisions about my life just became a little easier.While I enjoy reading about human nature…See More

Yes!  I totally agree that moods can be contagious!  Thankfully, it's been a while since I've had any kind of depression.  That doesn't mean I don't have my days when things overwhelm me and everybody around me can tell!  I've been trying to be conscious to not let things get to me so that the whole house doesn't end up anxious.
