Turn! Turn! Turn! (A Stroller Story)

I've always been a bit emotional when it comes to endings.  I am the mom who got choked up when their child outgrew the Gymboree class. And I got the down faced blues when we decided to pull the plug on swim classes because "he'll miss all his friends!" Spoiler alert: He was 3.

On Lifting Him Up and Letting Him Go

It's near.  I feel the change. I can see it coming faster and faster. In some ways it reminds me of so many previous big life changes. Time has a way of going quicker towards the end. In college for... Continue Reading →

On Brothers: Why they aren’t my “only”

Oh, Facebook.  Your "on this day" feature has become one of my favorite things. Today it reminded me that at this time 3 years ago we were announcing that our newest and last addition to our family would be another... Continue Reading →

Ten STEM toys Preschoolers will Love (and Moms will too!)

I've recently become very fond of STEM toys in our house. This isn't because of some article I read or study that I've found. I could pretend to be a better advocate for childhood development and open ended toys yadda... Continue Reading →

I Have Control of my Toddler: A Parenting Myth.

Earlier this week I was picking up Big Brother from preschool when Mr. Terrible Twos decided as we walked back to the street with my arms full of schoolwork and assorted classroom items that it would be fun exercise to... Continue Reading →
