No Time for School Lunch

Picture this scene:



You're 10. You enter your school's cafeteria with dozens of other 10 year olds. Try to recall the sights and smells of the elementary school cafeteria- green beans swimming in a pool of stagnant, green water, the square pizza with cubed pepperoni, the fruit cup which does not seem to resemble any kind of fruit you've ever seen in your life, the unnatural flourescent lighting, exacerbated by the fact that there are absolutely no windows.



Enter- the Lunch… Continue

I have had it with excessive toy packaging!



I promised you the story and the pictures of opening the packaging of a new toy for Landon. Don bought him this noisy backhoe that came in the most ridiculous packaging I have ever seen. It was tied down by tiny screws, of all things, and it took us 10 minutes to open it! We were fuming and poor Landon had to be so patient. After we finally got it open, I took care of the noise by taking out the batteries right away, there was no way I was going… Continue

Stop the Insanity!!

Ok, Susan Powter aside... (don't tell me you don't remember the 90's fitness guru?)













It is about time for me to shed my baby weight. My clothes aren't fitting right. Plus, my sister-in-law's wedding is next January. It will be a year after I delivered my last child so if I still look pregnant it will be dishearening to say the least!



So, while I am not going to follow the Stop the Insanity! program… Continue

Little Sprout Blooper



When Little Sprout was 10 months old (She walk quite well already), she used to pick up the stones or dried leaves, sometimes even rubbish on the playground. I always warn her "Dirty, throw away!!"



Then one day when I caught her playing with the dirty clothes in the laundry basket, I instinctively shouted "The clothes are DIRTY!", and she replied " Dirty, throw… Continue

The Climb

Like nothing ever happened, my week following Social Media Meltdown has been much more calm and serene. Back to my ol’ routine I find myself waking up earlier again and even though the light of dawn still brings bags under my eyes that are forever adjusting to gravity, hair that actually defies gravity and scuffing feet that barely lift one foot in front of the other, all may look like the heavily sedated depressed soul of yesterday, but I can tell on the inside… I’m different. I’m back. I know… Continue

Are You Just Watching from the Sidelines?



Have you ever watched a friend or relative get in amazing shape and thought to yourself, “I should do that someday?” Chances are there is someone in your life that you have watched from the sidelines, but something has held you back from getting in the game yourself.



Well, spring has sprung and it’s time to get in that game today. Stop waiting for tomorrow, or Monday, or when you lose 10 pounds so that you feel better about going to… Continue

A non-negotiable ritual

We talked some time ago about the physical health benefits resulting from daily tea drinking. Regular doses of antioxidants, as well as increased hydration and alertness, are just a few of those benefits. But tea has an experiential component that benefits mental health as well. A few moments taken to sit, sip and contemplate will give your poor, overcrowded brain a rest!



Easier said than done, right? Well, here’s an idea from our fellow Chai Babies out there. Claim one ritual for… Continue

Inside the Preschool Mind

Perhaps the alternate title for this post should be something like: why your preschooler doesn’t take a coat when it’s cold outside. Although I don’t have children yet, I’ve been around enough of them to know that they often do not follow the directions or precautions you give them, no matter how many times you repeat yourself. So why is that? Are they just choosing to ignore you? Or is there something different about the functioning of their brain that makes it difficult for them to plan… Continue
