An education is the most important tool we can give our children. It builds character, enhances confidence and paves the way for a successful career. Although a lot of teaching is done in the classroom, home is the foundation for a lifelong love of learning. This year, teach your child homework habits and study tips that will stay with them throughout their education.
1. Choose a designated study area. Setting aside a quiet place for homework and study time…Continue

It’s 2 a.m., you’ve finally dozed off, and have peacefully drifted into the land of a clean house and well behaved children (Let me clarify...this is in your dreams). All of a sudden, something arouses you to a conscious state. You lie there with your eyes still closed and assess the situation (we’re moms and intuitive dads...we can…Continue

A couple of weeks ago, Macmillan Kids send little Ricky a fun new book to read: Little Elliot, Big City. I really didn’t know much about it until we got it – and it’s actually really cute!
Little Elliot is a stuffed elephant living in the middle of New York City. He leads a quiet little life amid the hustle and bustle of the streets, where he feels too little…Continue

More often than not, we make excuses for not following a Health routine and postponing health related activities for “tomorrow.” “I have back to back meeting today so I will not exercise today, will do so tomorrow.” “I am starving and this crispy fried chicken…Continue

If you are as ambitious as I am about the future of your children, you've probably already made a high school and even an university plan, a full-day schedule filled with elaborated activities and lots of goals for your little ones to achieve.
Although this kind of parenting can be partly questionable, statistics show the more teens are engaged in the…Continue

Up until this point my pregnancy with Big M had been perfectly normal. We were already going to get baby checked out for heart defects because of family history. The provider emphasized that the specialist would want the blood screening done and we would have to get it done sooner or later.
Believing that the test was necessary we opted for sooner. At the next appointment our lives changed. We got the news that our baby had tested positive for Down Syndrome. Since we were…Continue

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately. Thinking about how losing my sweet baby girl has affected our life. I’ve come to believe – or rather, know – that when you lose a child, you actually lose a lot more than that.
Obviously, the biggest and most hurtful piece of what we’ve been through is losing our baby. There’s no getting around that. If May wouldn’t have happened, we would have a week old baby at home right now. But May DID happen, and there’s nothing I can do to change…Continue

The golden question I am always asked when people see me walking around the stores with my kids is How do you do it? In my post today, i’ll answer that question and many others I get.
When it comes to being a stay-at-home mom, of course I get the dirty looks because I am considered “lazy” for not having a…Continue

My son likes to remind me that he is my only child. He'll snuggle in my arms and say, "you are just my mommy - no one else has you for a mommy but me." It's possessive and sweet and it comes with a lot of responsibility that he doesn't understand yet.
Being a single child, he will fee lots of pressures in…

When you have a baby it's safe to say that you are restricted on the amount of free-time that you have throughout the day – we often have to rush when we are purchasing products and occasionally this might mean that we purchase products that aren't up to the standards we would like them to…Continue

Some of you already know this – but I am a full time work from home mom. I do quite a bit of freelance writing and marketing consulting – and my baby boy gets to actually be home with me two days a week. It’s like the best of both worlds – and I love it.
For many reasons, a daily office environment just isn’t for me. I’m really efficient – and when you’re graded on billable hours, like many agencies are, this actually hurts my performance reports. I don’t do office politics – I…Continue

As there are lulls in the weekly happenings in the family I will write more about the back story of Big M and our journey through special needs. His story actually starts when he was 13 months old. Something happened recently that I thought warranted a jump a head and talking about now.
Safety concerns are huge with parents of special needs children. Autistic children generally don’t…Continue

I don't broadcast my blog as much as I probably should. So, when I do mention it to friends or families and give a brief explanation of what it is about (news that all parents could use), I usually get one of the following reactions:…Continue

When I was nineteen years old, at my dad’s request, I stopped by Auto Zone to pick up a quart of motor oil. No one expects such a mundane task to become a life defining moment, but in my case it did because the guy who sold me that quart of oil turned out to be my future husband. Ours isn’t a story of love at first sight, he actually asked me to hook him up with a friend that was with me that day (ouch!), but luckily for me she wasn’t interested. He later told me he only went for her because…Continue

It’s true, sometimes I do. I try very hard not to be resentful of his free time, but sometimes it creeps in anyway. I’m sure there are many other mothers, especially working mothers like me, that feel this way from time to time. Things just seem so much easier and simpler for my husband than they do for me. For example, he is off work every other Thursday. This means that twice a month the kids are sent off to school, I go to work, and he has an entire day to himself. Alone time, I…Continue
