A First Best Friend

The lovely Amiyrah of 4 Hats and Frugal is sharing this post and her sweet photo with us today, on how important best friends are, and that as parents, we are our child’s first one. From as young as we can remember, we’ve all had best friends. Ones that we’ve had for years, and some… Read more »

Talking with your teen

I don’t know why people make such a big deal out of how hard it is to communicate with teenagers. All you need are truth serum and some sort of non-marking restraint. I’ve had at least one teenager in my house since 2004. One year–the Year of Wine–I had three teens at once. My very… Read more »

Baseball Time Again

Where I live baseball season is about to get into full swing. Pre season started a few weeks back and opening day for both baseball and softball are within the next two weeks. Little League is funny here in California because the pre-season starts in January. So many practices are spent bundled up with blankets… Read more »

Letting Go

I’m trying really hard not to let my fear of the water affect how I raise our children. Swimming pools have always made me nervous. Water in general makes me nervous. We tend to travel places that have lakes, oceans, or swimming pools readily available. This is why I want our daughter, Emma, to learn… Read more »

New Parenting Study to Help Confuse Parents More

Every time we turn around here is another study telling us how we are or are not parenting our children correctly. I am generally one of the first people to point out the absurdity of the constant stream of studies that bombard parents of today forcing them to parent under more pressure to “Do it Right”… Read more »

2013: Back In The Picture

Every year in January I am always inspired to change things. New Year’s Resolutions and happy positive life affirming life changes and all that “I’ve been a gluttonous lazy slob during the holidays and need to get out of it” kind of stuff. So my New Years’ Resolutions all look pretty typical, and I intend on following through… Read more »
