I tell my daughter to look in people's eyes, shake hands, speak so they can hear her, and a host of other things to help her socially in the world. In turn, she has little trouble making friends and...
I admire those parents who craft each piece of food into a cute animal. But I will never be that parent. I buy things he likes (or things I think he might like) and put one small serving in each compartment. Sometimes, I cut them into bite sized pieces to add more speed to the lunchtime equation. The bento box allows him beloved social time with his friends AND plenty of time to eat his entire lunch.
In approximately one hundred days I will walk to school with my two babies like I’ve done for the last two years. Except this time it will be different. I will walk home alone. My kids are school aged...
If you’re like me, you’ve done time volunteering in classrooms. And sometimes you are in charge of events and have to come up with cute activities and crafts for the kiddos to create and enjoy. This little tasty treat...
You think you are a good parent. You check I/C if not daily- weekly. You check the planners. You are told by your sweet, honest, charming and defensive child they don’t have any homework or they did it in...

These days when it is time to shop for groceries, I simply look at my weekly meal plans, print out the appropriate shopping list and go! By keeping the current list of meal plans on our fridge, I know exactly what to prepare ahead of time and what to set out to thaw. The hardest part is remembering to look at the list.
It's inevitable that you'll realize it's dress up day at school only after arriving to see everyone's child in costume but yours. You'll forget to sign that dumb Friday folder once or twice (a month). You'll pull into the driveway after drop-offs only to find your kiddo's lunchbox in the backseat.
Forget Valentine’s Day. I have a standing date every week. We’re not very exciting, we go to the same place, eat the same meals and sit in the same spot. Every week, without fail. Some people may not consider...
