4 Ways to Help a Wary Child Learn to Swim

Last year, my neighbors installed an in-ground pool and told my family we could come over to swim any time we wanted. Initially I was excited but then realized I had dropped the ball on teaching my son to swim. At the time my son was 3 years old and other than splashing in the ocean waves, he wasn't comfortable in the water, and he definitely didn't know how to swim. Any time he was in the water, he screamed for my husband or me to hold him. He was fine in a boat or on the shore, but once that water hit his legs, he needed ...

Spring Clean Beauty Products the Right Way!

Our make-up drawers are like little beauty treasure chests filled with colorful palettes, lipsticks, blushes and much, much more. Some of it we don’t even use. Okay…a LOT of it we don’t use.

Still holding on for dear life, but well beyond their prime. So if you happen to ...

Thoughtful Gifts for Encore Teachers

This is my son’s last year in elementary school. He has spent the last 6 years in a wonderful school with some pretty amazing teachers. Although my son and I send in a gift to his main teacher at the end of the year, we haven’t sent in any gifts for his encore teachers! I now realize I have neglected some amazing men and women who have taught my son in his Art, Music, Library, and Gym classes. I’m not sure why it hasn’t occurred to me before this year, maybe because he doesn’t see them as much as his main teacher, but these are ...

No Mother is Perfect, but…

You may remember a bit ago when I hung out with the Mother of All Meltdowns, the groovy book that tells the truth of momhood like it really is.  I loved this book. When I read it, I felt real, which is always a score in my book.  So when the super ladies of this […]
