De-mystifiying the College Application Process to U.S. Universities

“I’ll be up in the middle of the night and my brain says, 'Hey! let’s stay up for no good reason and think about random things…' that’s when I sometimes I think about college.” - Alex, age 13.



I asked my thirteen-year old son Alex, “Do you ever think about college?”

His response,  “Not really. They don’t talk about college in middle school.  But, randomly I will daydream about it, or I’ll be up in the middle of the night and my brain says, 'Hey!…

Who Invented the Tooth Fairy Anyway?

“Do ya think the tooth fairy can make it tonight? It’s been three nights already.  Just put the money in the case… “ - Stephen, age 9

 

The tooth fairy sucks.  She does, simply because everytime she blows off my kid, I’m left holding the bag.  Bad momma.   

 

I replay our convo in my head, “Do ya think the tooth fairy can make it tonight?  It’s…

Take Control Of Your Future And Reap The Rewards

Self-published authors have a pretty steep learning curve if they want to joint the ranks of the bestsellers. And I'm not talking about the Amazon bestsellers, I'm talking about the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers. Not an easy feat. It also doesn't happen for everyone. Authors can bust their tails for years and years, writing book after book and never make…

Mocha Frappuccino

Coffee and I have a LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, relationship; if I don’t start off my morning with that wonderful jolt of caffeine I don’t think my family would know how to handle me. Having my normal coffee with creamer gets a little boring though so I like to treat myself,…

নকল হাসি (False smile)

[English version has given below]
নকল হাসি, ভাল লাগে? নাহ...
তারপরও কোন কোন ক্ষেত্রে এর সত্যি দরকার আছে।
আমি এ্যাপোলো হসপিটালে গিয়েছিলাম "জানতে চাই"কে দেখতে। ওখানে ও যখন নার্সকে ডেকে পাঠালো সে আসল মুখে হালকা একট হাসি নিয়ে, বলল, "যে বলুন কি…

Slugs, Bullies and Raising a Boy

My son came home from preschool one day and said a boy was mean to him. I tried to get some specifics -- what did he do? Did he say something? Take away a toy? My son didn't explain much. I tried not to worry.

He came home another day and another and said the same thing. Then, the following school day, he didn't want to go to school. "Because of the mean boy."

He always wanted to go to preschool. Now this. Does it really start this early? Before Kindergarten? My chest hurt. It…

Drinking from the garden hose

Every summer morning, my brother and I would look at the thermometer near the kitchen door. If the thermometer said it was 74 degrees outside, then we were allowed to wear shorts. It was a big deal.…

In My House: Cooking Shows

Originally posted on www.ahousewithcharacter.com. Like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ahousewithcharacter.

One of my guilty pleasures is cooking shows.

Although cooking is not my favorite thing to do, it turns out I’m a little bit of a foodie. I love trying new cuisine, pairing interesting food and wine, and fantasizing about going to dinner at Ina Garten’s house (see…

Ways For Dad To Help A Breastfeeding Mama

The Reason I Write

A few weeks ago, I was perusing the Twitter world and stumbled upon an adoptive mother's profile. It read this:

“Hate my adopted kids. Please Help. Need hope.”

     That was it. That was her profile. Out of all the things she could've said about herself, this was what she chose. Not that she's a coffee-drinker, that she loves yoga, that she has 3 kids and a collie. Not that she is an adoptive mom looking for other adoptive moms to connect with. Not…

Kitchen and Bathroom 'Facelift' Ideas



Kitchens and bathrooms do help sell houses, although they may not be the main deciding factor, they are strong contenders when buyers consider what property they will now call home.

Buyers consider these rooms when they are house hunting because of the difficulty of renovating them and the expense that would be required. If you have been diligent in the upkeep and upgrades of your home then this…

10 Fun Summer Activities for Kids

10 Fun Summer Activities for Kids

I walked into a store today to pick up a picture frame and other nicknacks. After gathering my items and getting in line, an older lady looked down at my children (who were bouncing around like a couple of sugar-high human jumping jacks) and said, “I have two just like that. Well, my son has two just like that. I really think they should just have school all year round. Being out for the summer…
