Earlier this morning, I was with the kids in a busy local shopping plaza parking lot. This is an older parking lot and it does not fit today's parking needs, to say the least. It's dangerous and narrow and I only go there because I love that particular grocery store. Trying to leave a parking ...

We try very hard to offer healthy snack options for our children.  I've struggled with weight my whole life, and I'm trying to instill healthy habits from an early age in the hopes that my children don't follow this particular set of footprints of mine.  One of the things I'm thrilled that my children love ...

Today was one of those days.  We're in the middle of gutting our bathroom and I had a solid hour of time helping my husband in the bathroom this afternoon while my youngest napped.  That meant the older 2 kids were left to their own devices downstairs.  For an hour.

Last week, my 6 year old came home from school and told me that a child in her class wrote "I hate you (name)" on the whiteboard for everyone to see.  She was very upset for her friend who's name was on that whiteboard, almost in tears as we talked about how that must have ...

Protecting your baby from RSV

baby girl

My youngest daughter was born just over a month prematurely.  Her birth was nothing if not eventful- she was a double footling breach baby, and between my arrival at the hospital and her birth, I think maybe 30 minutes passed?  I can't say for sure because I was under general anesthesia at the time.  She ...
