I wasn't one of those Toddlers and Tiaras girls. Instead, my pageant journey began at the ripe old age of 11. There were sign-ups for the 1st annual (and what would be the last) Little Miss Greenbrier pageant and I was ready to literally dig my heels in the pageant scene.
My mom played it cool.…

Keep reading to find out why I no longer use cough syrup for my children!
Cold season is upon us! Having a daughter in preschool means that she will be bringing home plenty of viruses through out the winter. I try to control it as much as I can by having my daughter change her clothes when she comes in from outside and preschool. She also has her own hand sanitizer, I taught her how to use it and when to use it. Sometimes, no matter what you do, they still end up sick. My…Continue

My life has been filled with chaos, joy, grandchildren, children, animals, students, writing intermingled with walks along the beach and hikes through the mountains. None of this has turned my life upside down like my latest endeavor! We have a wonderful conference in its 2nd year coming up this April in Minneapolis, MN. It is designed to bring creatives (musicians, artists and writers) together with brain experts and educators. I can't believe how amazing this…Continue

Hi. I'm Lauren. And I know nothing about television.
Let me explain: Sometimes when I talk to other parents, they will tell me about the shows they or their children watch. And I have NO IDEA what they are talking about. I watch TV, but evidently, I don't watch what they are watching. I try to remember the…

If your kids are past infancy and you've never had a bad mom day, I can't be friends with you. I just can't. It will never work. You are not from this planet, and I think it's best for my kids if I don't bring extra terrestrials around.
I mean every sane person has a bad mom day.
If you're here on earth, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Sometimes it starts from the moment you wake up. Other times if creeps up on you around noon. Everything everyone is saying is…

They learn the difference between anger and frustration and put words to explain what they are feeling inside. Children must learn to recognize what’s going on in their mind and what they feel inside their heart. This proper equilibrium will help children in dealing with different situations.

I have three friends from college who live nearby and had babies around the same time as me. Three of us delivered the same week (one was checking out of the same hospital and was two rooms away the day I checked in) and the fourth delivered a few weeks later.
We had two girls and two…Continue
