Start the Conversation with #GrabtheGoodies @GoFAAR @AskListenLearn

I can be an ostrich. I can bury my head under the sand. Sing La La La when confronted with a situation that makes me uncomfortable. But I’m an adult. I can’t avoid unpleasant conversations with issues that affect my kids. I need to remove my head from the sand, come up for air,...

#MarvelUniverseLive Comes to #DC

Finding a movie for all five of us to watch as a family used to be so easy. I would pick a Disney movie or another animated movie and everyone would be happy. Once my oldest turned 12 or so, her interest in animated movies waned. My middle and youngest were still game to...

College Days: Two Weeks In

Two weeks. Fourteen days. That’s how long it is since I saw my daughter last. Dropping her off at college seems like months ago. It’s not that the house is quieter without her. She’s a very quiet person. But even her quiet, reserved presence is noticeably missing from the hub bub of the house....

Giving Back: Starting a Family Tradition (Part 2)

Giving back. I teach my children to give back. I encourage them to bring in food donations…toys for an adopted family…mittens for the “Christmas Glove Tree.” Basically, if the school or church asks for items, I’m happy to provide items. I lead by example. I show them that I donate clothes, toys, and household...

Middle Schoolers Explore Engineering at #FutureCity #GirlDay2014

Science classes at my school were dry…and if I am honest…quite dull. The formats for all my classes in middle school and high school were set in stone. Years and years of girls at my school had done the same thing every day in every class…girls entered the class, greeted the teacher, opened their...

A Touch of Magic with a Patronus Charmballa Bracelet

Disclosure: I was sent a Patronus Charmballa Bracelet to facilitate my review. I was paid to write this post. There’s something magical about a book about a world utterly different from your own.

I made the decision to go to college in the United States, by looking at college brochures. This was in the Dark Ages pre-internet and streaming TV/movies. I...

5 Tips: Get Kids Involved with Chores #home #organization

I wish I had jumped on the chores bandwagon when the children were small. The earlier you start assigning chores to your children the better, right? My little ones always wanted to help me clean or fold laundry…even if I didn’t actually want the help. At times their “help” meant far more work for...
