On Mother's Day, you just have to send a card. But sometimes, standing in the card aisle can be overwhelming. This year I lucked out! I found exactly what I wanted to say, and in a short amount of time.
I introduced my elementary-aged kids to the “Little House on the Prairie” TV show a few months ago. It was definitely one of my favorite shows as a kid in the '70s and '80s. I didn’t realize that now, in 2012, this would become my daughter’s favorite program, too.
On Father’s Day, my church hosted a car show in the church parking lot. And here's where we ran into trouble. Our pastor wanted us to be the friendliest congregation on the block. Funny how one car show enthusiast was ready to blow a gasket!
I like tradition. And I like traditional favorites. Looking for chocolate behind advent calendar windows, watching holiday classics like "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer narrated by Burl Ives" and visiting Santa are holiday musts.
Every year I let my kids choose a theme for their parties. This year my daughter wanted an American Girl birthday. Last year, Olivia had a mermaid party and Jacob wanted a sports theme. Now, it’s all about the American Girl.
Stress, tears, relief… three feelings moms experience often, maybe even daily. Being a mom is the BEST job ever, but let’s face it, it can get complicated... especially when you lose your wedding ring!
“The corn looks like tiny little ants and the houses look like toy houses. Mom was right,” Olivia squealed. Not only were my kids up in the air, they were going to Florida where new sites and adventure awaited them. This was a time of “firsts” for our family on many levels.
‘Tis the season for a timeless parenting question. How old should your kids be when you have the “Santa Claus” talk? What? What are you talking about? I know… it’s hard for me to even ask that question. But, as a mom, I feel like other people ruin the magic too soon.
As parents, we do our best to try and shield our kids from troubling topics. And here we were faced with a story about a former Penn State coach who sexually abused children…children about the same age as my son.
When you're old, you are more certain of who you are, and that may be a good thing or a bad thing.
