I heard a very loud “CRASH” from upstairs. Moments later my Daughter walked down the steps, my teary-eyed Son following slowly behind. “Ummm, something happened” she informed me. It was at that second that my Son broke down into hysterics. He wouldn’t tell me what happened, he kept crying “I’m in big trouble” over and over again

One of my favorite parts of the day is homework time with my kids. I know that sounds preposterous, but it’s true. It could be that the homework is still digestible, and I still understand it. It’s a good opportunity to spend individual time with each child. It’s also great to watch their progress. One […]

Sorry Mom, it […]

Fact: I don’t like to sleep with my feet under the covers. I’ll pile on the blankets, but my feet always stick out at the end of the bed. Fact: I have 2 small children that wake up early on the weekend to watch cartoons. Fact: They’ve developed a certain finesse in how they wake […]
