Why Mommy needs some alone time - Part 1

I am in the store by myself.This is odd for me. I am usually accompanied by my son and husband, or at least by my son. But, he did NOT want to go grocery shopping with me, and my sweet husband elected to stay home with him and build with Legos or set up racetracks or do whatever it is they do together during man time.Which leaves me in the store by myself.I am always caught slightly off guard…See More

"I'm actually trying to figure out now what show to let go of. We don't watch much TV, but I feel like I could use the extra hour in my week somewhere...maybe things will feel better when we've made it through House of Cards!"

Making my peace with traffic

One of the many reasons we moved was to shorten our commute time. So, although I find myself driving less miles, I find that I am in the car for the same amount of time as I used to be (or sometimes for longer). Every morning and evening, I sit in traffic and look at the other cars around me: I see angry, frustrated drivers who are endangering everyone around them by not using turn signals when merging; I see sleepy drivers who are yawning and drinking Starbucks; I see a lot of people talking…See More

Emily Huston commented on Lauren Markman's blog post 'How much homework is too much?'
"Well i agree to the fact that burden of homework can be detrimental on the health of the kid. That is why it has become important for school authorities to ensure that kids needs to be nurtured properly without giving stress any factor in life."

The results of the media diet

Last week, I came across the term media diet and decided to track my own use of media throughout a typical week. I was especially interested in seeing how much I used media (specifically, my smartphone, the computer and TV) in front of my impressionable son. So, let me explain the rules I set for myself: I use a computer all day at work, so I didn't factor that time into my data set. I did,…See More

Marcia Fowler commented on Lauren Markman's blog post 'Experimental Mommy'
"Science is so much fun with kids! They are natural scientists. I find if I follow their lead and what they're interested in (Hey, mom, watch this marble, rock, truck, puddle, soap bubble) it's easy to bring science into the day. What did I…"

Experimental Mommy

In school, science was never my strong suit. I'd like to blame this on the nuns. (Can I do that?)Things picked up for me in science when I finally got away from the life sciences and got to explore chemistry and astronomy. (Let's add fire! Let's talk about other planets!) It was great timing, because by 10th grade I was really, really tired of talking about cells and phylums.So, that's how long it took for science to be fun for me: High school. I don't want my son to have to wait that long. To…See More

"That he has taken up fishing. He's a guy who's done an ironman and many half irons. He's active. Yet he now loves night time fishing in a kayak. And he's convincing others to join him! I agree with the study about spouse's…"

Learning how to play it safe

Posted on April 15, 2014 at 6:34am 0 Comments

My son has a special title: He is our safety officer. Whenever we get in the car to go to school, I tell him that he is responsible for making sure everyone is buckled up for safety. When he helps me cook in the kitchen, I've given him the responsibility for making sure I am being safe around the stove.…
