Being a mother is the most challenging, and rewarding, experience of my life. You have taught me what it means to be unconditionally loved, how to unconditionally love another, to want something better for someone else than what I want for myself, and helped me understand who I am in ways I don’t know that I would have ever…Continue

“You might be a little better than average.”
I had asked my dad what he thought of my singing voice and that was his reply: a step above average. I remember this moment vividly, since as a preteen I took it as a cruel insult. How dare he!
I’ve always loved to sing, and being musically inclined, I can indeed carry a tune. But I am not destined to live life defined as “a singer,” and Dad (a musician) knew that.
Did his critique…Continue

Over at the blog we have started a series of customized curriculum with the help of an experienced preschool teacher. In recent years it has become popular to jump around the alphabet rather than learning the ABC song, that way the child learns the letters rather than a song.

the next day, Monday, he says he will come over that night. When I call him after work and he says he will leave in a couple of hours to head toward my place. As the time passes, I text him to find out when he will be over....and he never arrives. The next day comes, and he says he misses me and wants to see me, so he is definitely coming over. He never does.
Every day, for the next week, he tells me he will come over, and as the days pass, I never see him. Even though we talk and…Continue

I recently spent an afternoon with a good friend, who has a toddler. While we were talking about parenting she told me her son has started biting his baby brother. My friend said nothing she or her husband had tried is working. Her son bit another child at childcare this week for the first time
Biting is a behavior that many toddlers display at one time or another. It can be something that makes the adults feel frustrated and helpless. There is hope!
Whenever a child is…Continue
