Why Not Visit London?

New York. London. Paris. As a little kid, I was a seasoned traveler. I had visited all of these cities and more by the time I was 9. My passport had stamps from the many cities we landed in. Of course I was a young enough and security was very lax back then, so...

Hop on Over to the White House Easter Egg Roll

I tried in 2008 when my son was 5. I’m not sure why I never entered before. Probably we were not available on the day. But, by ’08 I was bound and determined to enter. What am I talking about? Why, the White House Easter Egg Roll. That was back in 2008. I entered...

Who Had More Fun? Mom and Dad or the Kids? #Legoland

In true Musings from Me fashion, last year’s summer vacation was thrown together at the last minute. I knew I was going to BlogHer, but the details were very sketchy. At the beginning of July, all I had was a ticket and a hotel room. By the end of July, I had decided to...

Soarin’ and Screamin’ at California Adventure #seizingfamilytime

My son is a giant. O.K. not quite. But he is very tall for his age. At 3 he was mistaken for a 5-year-old. At 5, people assumed he was 8. Lately, people have asked if my 8-year-old is 10 or 11. What?! Being mistaken for an older kid can be onerous. Especially if...
