Thinking outside the lunch box

My son is in Kindergarten, and he is excited. He is excited about all the new classrooms, books, children and fun to be had. But he is more excited about one particular part of Kindergarten, more than anything else: He can bring a lunch from home. Up until this point, he has eaten the provided lunches at his daycare. Or at least he has eaten part of them - there have been lots of frustrating talks at the dinner table over what he might have been served for lunch that day, since most days he…See More

If you're happy and you know it, tell your Mom

There are certain questions that I ask my son frequently:Did you know that you are very special to me?What questions did you ask today?Did you flush and wash your hands?What did you do today?Seriously, did you flush and wash your hands?Are you happy?It's that last question that has been on my mind lately. Because sometimes, it is really, really hard to tell. The Journal of Experimental Child Psychology recently published a study trying to determine if…See More

Going from DINKs to parents

Dual-Income, No Kids. That's what my husband and I were for a very long time. We spent years together working, traveling, figuring out who was the better chef (me), who was handier around the house (him) and having long discussions about the type of family we wanted to have one day. I had been with my husband for thirteen years before I got pregnant, and I know him better than any other person in this world.…See More

"Math is a challenge and I don't know if your area has adopted common core math but Oye vey! They don't even teach math like they did so it's a double slam! Good point on passing down anxiety to kids:)"

"My favorite subject was literature. I had awesome literature teachers that made the classes interesting. My love for it spread to both my kids, which is so great to see. Thanks!"

Team Suck - For the Win!

Posted on September 1, 2015 at 6:26am 0 Comments

Last week one of my fantastic coworkers finagled a way for our team to go bowling together. She and I were incredibly excited to get the time away from work to do some team building - even though we both suck at bowling. We suck at bowling so much, that we happily dubbed our team, Team Suck.…

Another reason to fear the blue light

Posted on August 31, 2015 at 6:35am 0 Comments

I am typing this post three hours before my bedtime. I normally do not work on blog posts at night (I write the majority of them in the mornings on the weekends), but it has been a busy weekend, so I am writing this one a few hours before I go to sleep. It is a Monday post, but that is not the deadline that I have in mind. My deadline is actually to be done with my computer an hour before my bedtime.…
