August is not only the month that most children return to school, but it is also unofficially National Toddler Month. So it seemed appropriate to blog on something related to toddlers this month. Toddlers are defined as children between the ages of one to three. This is my favorite age group. They are those magical creatures that find awe in everything! Everything is new and exciting to them. They are working on figuring out how to assert their independence, but also want to know that they…Continue

Tonight I was browsing the Internet for some fun activities to keep my toddler entertained during the day so that he isn’t spending countless hours in front of the television. I was impressed with the amount of information that I was able to find when I searched for free preschool curriculum. In fact, I was somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of…Continue

Years ago, when my youngest child was under 16 months and I had a newborn, I had a friend that I spent a lot of time with. We were both stay at home moms with husbands who worked long hours. …Continue

Is your life an endless cycle, revolving around work and taking care of the kids? If so, you’re not alone. In a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, ½ of American women say they don’t have enough time to spend on themselves and to choose the activities they enjoy. We all know that saying ‘yes’ to more responsibility can make us feel safer with the boss and help us avoid conflict in the family. But too often ‘yes’ is our default mode with just about…Continue

I really enjoy this project because the kids learn SO MUCH out of it!
I’ve been collecting water bottle caps over some time now. I can proudly say (and only because of this project) I have collected lots of them. I started writing the letters on them so we can spell out words. The first word my preschooler learned was his name. He was so happy to see his name written out. Then, he got…Continue

Reading this article When Kids Hate to Read conjured up images of my childhood years. As a child who did not care to read, I can sympathise with the many kids who feel the same way I did when I was their age. With the exception of Charlie and the Chocolate, Charlotte’s Web and the Judy Blume series, reading fiction for me was a waste of time. This should not come as too much of a surprise,…Continue

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…Continue

In 2011, I joined the growing and oft-maligned ranks of online writers known as the “mommy bloggers” with my particular offering: grayhairedmom.com. Why, you may ask, did I become a blogger? Even more, you may be wondering, what gave me the gray hair, and why would anyone be interested?
Obviously, first things first, before becoming a mommy blogger, I…Continue

Hi MBB readers!
I have received some emails over the past few months asking if I follow a “blogging schedule.” In short, I haven’t. I have always blogged according to what was on my mind that day. I finally went through all my posts and read over what I love to write about and have officially made a blogging schedule. Yes, I’m excited to even announce that. In all honesty, I can’t promise to be exact all the time, but I will absolutely try my best. I work best when I have a schedule…Continue

This morning, my little man woke up at 5:30 on the dot. It was as if he knew it was time for us to get moving – because without that little wake up call there was no WAY I was getting out of bed on time. So I got up and made him breakfast. Started some coffee and let the dog out. Grabbed my phone to check my email and it hit me: my baby is eleven months old today. In a mere month, he’ll be a full YEAR old. My oh my, has time sure flown by...Continue reading at …Continue

It's actually a very tiring experience even if you've everything humanly possible to prepare for it.
So it only makes sense that when your kids come home from a long day of overwhelming socialization, learning, and self-preservation they will need some time to decompress and unwind from the day.
But as a parent what…Continue

When you’re pregnant, and you read all of the “What to Expect” books, you learn a lot of things about how your body is going to change. One of those changes will make absolutely no sense and seem completely unrelated to actually having a child: you learn your eyesight is going to get worse. But don’t worry! The book says that your eyesight will go back to normal after you have your baby. It’s only temporary. Don’t get new glasses. You can live through a few months…Continue

Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings. - Samuel Johnson
Being a mom blogger is tough. We’re all so intimately connected through our blogging and social networks that we know the companies other moms are working with and for, the events they’re invited to, speaking gigs they receive, and products that get thrown their way. In the midst of all…
