She Says: Don’t forget, she has dance tonight. It’s ballet/tap/jazz. He Says: I thought she wasn’t doing dance anymore. She Says: No, she’s still dancing, she also has hip hop on Thursday but– He Says: Thursday too? That’s WAY too much!! She Says: Yes, but I told her she may have to pick just one… read the rest.
We’ve made it! We survived our first week of Kindergarten… Or at least the hardest part for me—Waking up. You know me, I went a bit overboard documenting the occasion with pictures and video. Maybe it’ll give you a few ideas if your little one is starting school soon. Here are some things I’ve learned… read the rest.
I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I breastfed them each for a year and a half, or just sheer luck, but in the short few years my children have been alive, they rarely get sick. We’d battled a 24 hour stomach bug and an ear infection or two, but nothing severe or consistent. So… read the rest.
There are a couple of things my son absolutely adores: Trains and letters. Trains. Not a big surprise right? I’ve mentioned this a few times. My mom lives near train tracks and when we’d go over to her house he’d look out the window and watch the train go by over and over and cheer… read the rest.
Saturday August 15th: Back-to-school shopping Ok, so that wasn’t as glamorous as I imagined. I thought she’d be thrilled to pick out her school supplies.

We don’t argue about who is going to take out the trash. The night before trash day my husband sets the trash and recycling bins outside. He’s awesome and does this for us every week. Every week we also have tons of recycling overflowing from the tiny bin our city gives us, so we fill cardboard… read the rest.
I’m not gonna do it. I’m not going to stop and think about how I started this blog what feels like yesterday, before my daughter was even a dream. I’m not going to dwell on the fact that she’s growing up so freaking fast and though I’m searching, frantically for a pause button, she’s still… read the rest.
A few people have stopped me after reading my posts about our trips to Disney Parks this year and asked me when the best time to go is. Not as in best time of year, but the best age to visit Disney World, or Disneyland (here’s a recap of my Walt Disney World & Disneyland comparison). So… read the rest.
It’s normal for things to be pretty crazy for me at this time of year. As the former education and now parenting reporter at my station I’m tasked with doing the back-to-school series. But to top it off this year I’m also sending a child to school for the first time this year, which as… read the rest.
Sorry, got sucked back into Harry Potter for a minute (just finished book 4 and all I can say is whoa). Plus, things are ramping up for Kinder. Is anyone else freaking out or is it just me? Wanted to post a quick (almost) Wordless Wednesday post and share a couple more photos from our Utah trip…. read the rest.
