A few months ago, I wrote a post about how my perfect two-year-old little boy had transformed into a three-year-old with a case of the ‘troublesome threes.’ I originally thought this was just my son acting out as a regular three-year-old would, and that he would soon get over his behavior. However, as the months […]
Anyone who knows me well knows I love Thanksgiving. It’s my favorite holiday…what’s not to like, all you have to do it eat! The month between Halloween (my least favorite holiday) and Thanksgiving is full of pumpkins, apples, and visions of Thanksgiving dinner. I love investigating new recipes and crafts, especially to honor the holiday. Luckily, […]
It’s that time of year again. The polar vortices are threatening to descend upon on; all of the holiday music that has been playing and the Christmas decorations that have been out since August finally seem relevant; and people are strategizing their Black Friday deals (is it really Black FRIDAY anymore?).

I was lucky to find out about “Little Farmers” just one week before SM&NC’s fall session began, and of course, signed us up! Here are some examples […]
The Toys R Us big book of toys has already arrived, and the house is a buzz with ideas for what Santa should bring. And just an FYI, it will never be a live horse, Miss L! Finding the right toys that they will continue to play with for more than a season isn’t easy. As […]
From as early as I can remember I have loved completing those silly quizzes that could be found while reading Cosmopolitan or Seventeen Magazine. What kind of friend are you? What is your perfect style? What is your ideal job? I have to admit, now, when I see those BuzzFeed quizzes on Facebook I always […]
Only a week and a half until my 5 hour train ride to our Thanksgiving destination. This could go well or very bad. We’ve already experienced the plane trip from Hell (we’re THAT family that makes people question whether small kids should fly,) so I’m hoping another year of experience and a train ride, something my […]
