“How did you meet her?”
These were some of the questions that were hurtled at me as I stood in a book store amidst a bevy of children and their parents and I felt like the most popular girl in the world… at least for a brief moment… when a 12 year old quickly put me…Continue

I'm always on the lookout for simple, free, and educational activities for my kids. Emphasis on free. One of the things we've been doing a lot lately has a fancy-schmancy child-developmental-ish name, the sensory box.
Basically these are containers full of sensory related items for children to play in and explore. The possibilities for play are endless with sensory boxes and can be tailored to your child's developmental goals, age, and special needs. One of the great things about them…Continue

We are finally trying to get organized and we are off to a great start. I got this Expedit shelving unit from Ikea ($149). Organizing the books by color makes the room extra fun, and the baskets are great for storage. …Continue

I make mine using one of my favorite kitchen appliances, the Breville mini pie maker, but you can easily adapt the recipe for a standard pie plate and bake them in the oven. We recommend baking at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes,…Continue

“I deserve a good night’s sleep, too,” he said.
I was already feeling a little irked by his word choice. He deserves.…Continue
Check out our super fun spring break "stay-cation"! We had such a great week just spending time together!
The woman at the T-ball game spoke softly to her son. He was newly two, there to cheer his older brother on. He'd found a tennis ball and snatched it up the way toddlers collect small treasures like gold.
He hurled it repeatedly it from the top row of the stands, hitting concrete in twelve bounces down. Some of us smiled, admired the boy.
His spontaneous sense of fun...the kind that…Continue
I just got back from NYC and had such a fun time at the Liz Lange Maternity for Target party on Wednesday. I first met up with my dear childhood friend Maggie and met her beautiful new baby Sloan (who is absolutely adorable). Then she and I headed out for a girls night out and went to…Continue

My father passed away last week. Although he had been sick for many years it has still left me in a bit of shock. The memories of him dancing me to sleep, the music, oh how he loved music, his incredible sense of humor and compassion around me were abundant and constant. He wasn't a perfect father and…Continue
On a recent morning, hubby passed the Parade Magazine that comes with the Sunday paper over the table to me. "This is something you could have written," he said. I scanned the headline of the article he pointed to and set it aside to read when I had time.
Later that night, after SB had gone to bed, I sat down to read it. And I was blown away. I loved the honesty. The humility. The…Continue
