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...

Nothing Compares to the San Diego Zoo

On last summer’s Musings from Me trip to southern California, we did it all! Dad and the kids toured Sea World and relaxed on the beach, while I did my thing at BlogHer. While I was very happy to go to BlogHer, I was sad to missĀ  one San Diego landmark…the San Diego Zoo....

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...

Disneyland Fun for All Ages #seizingfamilytime

As a child, we traveled a great deal. I lived in three countries. Attended three preschools. Three elementary schools. Two middle schools. And one high school. Lived in seven homes, including one hotel. Yikes that’s a lot of moving! As well as moving, we vacationed all the time. When we first moved to the...

Mixing Business with Family in Southern California #seizingfamilytime #blogher

With a Kid, a Preteen-now-Teen, and a Teen, finding something fun for all of us to do is a challenge. You wouldn’t think so, but it is. Years ago, we could pop in a DVD. Go to a museum. Go out for ice cream. But, then school intervened. And homework. And weekends packed with...

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...

Reindeer Food, Halloween Skeletons, and Bunny Crafts

One of the pluses of having children at different preschools is the variety. For a myriad of reasons, my three children attended four different preschools. Each preschool adhered to the preschool calendar of projects tied in to holiday traditions and celebrations. Even though all three preschools celebrated seasonal events, each had different lesson plans...

Holiday Gift Guide: A Gift Box Sure To Please One and All

Cheese. Cheddar. Gouda. Smoked Cheddar. Creamy Swiss. Mission Jack. And even Jalapeno and Cheddar. To me, cheese is a major food group. I can eat cheese morning, noon, night, and even late in to the night. Cheese hits the spot. It’s satisfying, filling, and can be a meal by itself. As a child in...
