We were busy professionals in our 50s with an only child. We're now even busier as we adapt to our new life with a now 12 year old boy. I hope you'll follow our journey. Continue reading

Earlier this year, the 6-year-old got red stripes in her hair. This wasn't her first time getting stripes. In fact, she has had them several times in a variety of colors since she was 4. Back to the "self-expression through... Continue reading

6-year-old doesn't know she isn't supposed to love Brussel Sprouts. Because I love them, she does, too. Let's keep it that way! Continue reading

As a parent, I want to encourage her to be anything she can be. But I can't help wondering as she embarks on a new activity: "Will she be a singer? Will she be a dancer? Will she be an... Continue reading

Great way to get the 6-year-old to practice her reading and putting words together to make...poetry. Continue reading

No matter how much I love Hello Kitty, this seems wrong. Just plain wrong. Continue reading

Painted her own nails. And stuck on a temporary tattoo by herself. I firmly believe in allowing her small acts of self-expression through "fashion." Yes, I draw the line at piercings... Continue reading

At bedtime, 5yo said, "I'm very lucky to have a good mommy and daddy who take care of me when I'm sick." Continue reading

The other day, before I left on a business trip, I was getting the 5yo ready for school. I ended up braiding her hair "wrong" & put socks on her feet that were "too big." She started sobbing. Continue reading
Thanks, Kelby. I think this is the best blog post yet about Klout: http://www.richardrbecker.com/2011/11/scoring-social-rise-and-fall-of-klout.html It is the biggest scam ever, and the post tells it like it is - ala Dr. Seuss!
Ego-bait. That describes it, Paul. I do know how you feel, however, as I have had my moments early on when I checked my score. We all do it at one point or another. All except the gazillions of people who have never heard of Klout and could care less about it when they do.
My delayed response isn't a lack of paying attention to you, Virginia! Have been on the road and got sidetracked. But thank you for noticing my posts. I'm an intermittent blogger these days as I'm sure you've seen, but when I really feel strongly about something, this blog is still a good outlet for me. Glad to know someone is out there still watching. Thank you!

I want her to be adventurous and not afraid to try new things, never afraid unless it is prudent to have a small degree of fear. I want her to know her limits but to push herself to do more,... Continue reading

I'm gearing up for another book tour, this time in support of my 9th book. It's called Mom, Incorporated, and it is geared toward moms and moms-to-be who want to plan for, start or grow a business from home with... Continue reading

Yes, I let her go to school like that. She has a quirky, vivid, free sense of style, and I love it. My dad once commented that he thought it was amazing that I let her wear her unique combinations... Continue reading

Our driveway is short enough that we don't have to get in a car to drive to the end of it to get to the road where the school bus picks her up (some folks around here do have that),... Continue reading

Her backpack is bigger than half her body, and she loves it. She doesn't really carry much in it. A change of clothes. A green laminated folder that contains the school work she does each day. And her lunch. That's... Continue reading
Shelly - Agree about caveat emptor, definitely. I want to help educate more consumers on how to evaluate social media service providers. I think it's needed to help them make more informed decisions.
