I have been on a bit of a British binge of late with Netflix. My son told me the other day I need to be grounded from all things British. I don't know what the draw is for me, perhaps my love of history. But I do love all these period shows that Netflix is currently streaming. My summer nights have been filled with British and Irish accents.Read More
A new year has begun. A fresh start for everyone with resolutions in full force.

Do you have a “5 more minute” negotiator on your hands, or is your little one slow as snails come bedtime?
It is utterly ridiculous some nights in my home. My son is the staller. He just simply does not want to go to bed early because he thinks he is too old to go to bed before 10 pm/ But we all pay the price the next day when Mr. Grumpy pants waked up at very early o'clock in the morning for school.Read More

Parenting is always an adventure in the making. Just yesterday I took my three little people and one of my son's friends to Six Flags Great America. The lines were long, the wait times were insane, my son and his friend forgot tot text me to let me know where they are and I had a mini panic attack thinking they were lost to me and how was I ever going to tell my friend I had lost her child; when all the while my son and his friend were in an arcade as I was wearing downs paths looking for them both!Read More
While my children are taking a break this summer and not attending summer school, I still want to inspire their learning throughout the summer months. We still school part-part-time three days a week for an hour or so. We do loads of summer reading programs and naturally I look for anything that helps me and my kids keep connecting.
My kids love to listen to any story about myself when I was a child. They will ask me to tell them the same story over and over. It cracks me up. It connects our childhoods; they have something in common with me. There’s something pretty awesome about connecting with my kids over something I loved when I was young.Read More
