Lazy summer days are coming to an end for most (if not already ended) and backpacks are being stuffed with supplies. Back-to-school is an exciting time for kids (and moms) and at our house we try and make it something to look forward to, and ease the fears and insecurities that lie just below the surface. One of our favorite traditions this...

  Before school started, they were with you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  During the summer, they "helped" you put on makeup, came running for hugs when so-and-so pushed them at the park, and told you the most hilarious knock-knock jokes...again, and again. But now your kids are in school for up to seven hours a day.  Maybe...

Is it just me or did summer come and go so fast this year? I used to think I couldn't wait for my kids to go back to school, but now I wish time would slow down and they would stop growing. It is so important to enjoy your children at every age.  It really does go by way too fast. As their summer vacation draws to an end, I try and remind my...

My daughter has been chomping at the bit to learn how to sew. I think I was a little intimidated (remembering back to how many times I messed up my mom's machine when she taught me so many years ago) so I kept putting it off. It seemed like a much better summer activity and when summer finally rolled around she was more than excited to get...

Manners Matter 10 Manners Every Child Should Know featured image

I love the movie Nanny McPhee.  She becomes a nanny to a family with very naughty children and teaches them to "behave".  My girls love it when I say "behave" in my silly British Nanny McPhee accent. I decided to write this post because this summer I have been noticing some bad manners in my house and I wanted to fix them ASAP. Just tonight...

A few months ago my son had his eighth birthday. One of the gifts, from my sister who is working close to Zion National Park, was an excavation kit. I had never seen one before, and when we opened the box we saw some small tools and a brick of sandy plaster. My eight-year-old went to town and stayed consumed with the excavation kit for four...

  Oh say can you see by the dawn's early light,What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our flag was still...

The greatest game of baseball ever played happened while we were vacationing on the warm sandy beaches of California. We played in the waves and sand all day! As the hours passed we forgot to pull out our fat bat and wiffle balls! We had also picked up a few baseball gloves from HomerunMonkey.com. It wasn't until the sun set, and we went to...
