I grew up at the shore– yes, year-round– so swimming has always been a huge part of my life. Raising city kids, swimming is less common, but no less essential in my mind. We have done a variety of swimming lessons and free swimming over the years, in addition to trips to our local public...

#sponsored Growing up my grandparents took my brother and I to a play or musical once a year. I fondly remember each theatre we visited even decades later. One of my favorite parts about raising city kids is that we have amazing theatre opportunities in our backyard. Now I can create similar childhood memories for...

As the temperatures get colder and we hole up at home, I start purging all the things that we have accumulated recently. During warmer weather when we spend our days playing outside it is easy to let the clutter pile up, but in winter, I want to simplify. This year, I was tidying up before...

A colleague recently assumed that I never watch TV. She came to this conclusion because she thinks that I am too busy for TV, but had she come to my home at 9PM she would certainly see me parked on the couch watching something mindlessly entertaining. I wish I could say that I am so...

Each fall I teach my children’s preschool a lesson on hand hygiene. Quite intentionally I plan this for the start of flu season, hoping to minimize the spread of illnesses around our classroom. Without fail, my children are always embarrassingly bad when judged on the thoroughness of their handwashing, which always gets laughs from the...

Sometimes a single book can dredge up many emotional memories. It may be that you read it at a critical time in your life, or it was shared by a special person, or that it was simply a great book. For me, Reviving Ophelia by Mary Pipher was that book for all those reasons. Today...

Mommy Call by Mommycall - 1y ago
When asked to describe our family’s hobbies, my son answered: “Daddy: comic books; Sister: dolls; Mommy: naps.” People often tell me that I do too much, take on too many projects. Lately I have had moments where I felt that this may be true. Meanwhile, my son thinks I am just napping all the time!...
