A friend of mine is part of a family who owns a local farm. She invited us blueberry picking. It was my kiddos first time picking. I learned that picking blueberries can keep kids busy and happy. My 2 year old is the perfect age. She loves putting things inside things. She can spend 30 minutes filling the same bucket of water with water from her baby pool. Similarly, blueberry picking is moving one object into another and she was in heaven. My five year old was just happy to be outside and eating some yummy treats he worked to get. I was explaining our blueberry fun to my sister in law. She...

Z went to a party this weekend. It was a bowling party. I thought the cake was very creative. Made with cupcakes… a bowling pin and a bowling ball (a perfect 10). Leslie did a great job on the cake. I had to share it!

I started running a few months ago. I have about 50lbs of baby weight to loose. Well, I have had this weight for about 6 years (another story). With the help of couch potato to 5K (and my membership to a gym w/childcare) I am finally able to run 5k / 3 miles straight!!! This is a huge accomplishment for me. You think since I went from coach potato to runner I would have lost at least 10lbs… NOPE, not a pound. I guess I am realizing that exercise does not mean I can still eat like a pig!!! Yes, I feel more toned and energized. I don’t think I have ever made exercising a priority in...

I am a huge fan of Children’s Literature. One thing I never pass up buying is a Children’s book. If my kids ask for a book, they usually get it. We have baskets of books everywhere in my house and a shelf of children’s books in most rooms. I admit that I am somewhat obsessed! When my little man was 18 months and we moved him into a big boy bed, we read him children’s books related to this transition… When we started potty training, we read him books on the topic. Similarly we are doing this with my daughter now. When he was going to have a baby sister we read him...

So a friend of mine a few years ago introduced me to John Rosemond. I thought I would share with those who read this blog. If you are looking for some great parenting advice, jump into a Rosemond book. My book club even read the book, BECAUSE I SAID SO as one of our monthly reads. I created a game to play at the book club meeting and it can be downloaded at:

Thought I would share something I love:If you allow your younger kiddos (ages 2 – 10) to use your IPOD, this is the case you need to keep it safe! We got one recently because we allow our five year old son to watch downloaded shows on it when we are flying or if we are out to eat. Also, our two year old uses it too for the same reasons. Basically one of our take-along babysitters we use in those Mommy and Daddy need a break times!!! The material of the TADPOLE is sturdy and our video IPOD fits right in. The handles on the side are the perfect fit for little hands. It is easy for them to...
