A Big Breakfast on the First Day of School
On the first day of school, I make a big fancy breakfast for the entire family. We have scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, waffles, fresh berries, whipped cream, orange juice and more. Rather than eating on our own...
The Reading Jar
Encouraging your children can read can sometimes be challenging. You have to fight with video games, television and a generally full schedule. To make reading more fun I started a "reading jar" for each...
Bathtime Fun with Herman

The Mommy Tapes

Candlelight and Color Baths
Every so often our two-year old and four-year old tire of taking their bath. To perk their interest and liven the nightly routine, every so often they bathe by candlelight. We drop colored bath tablets in the...
A Party Queen's Guide to After-School Snacks
When I was in the fourth grade, my mother went back to work and my grandmother, Nannie, took on the after-school duties. Growing up, I was lucky to have two amazing grandmothers living close by. One taught...
Learn Your World
Like many kids, my children spend a lot of hours in front of the television. I make an effort to monitor both the amount of time they spend watching as well as the shows they are allowed to watch. A few...
Timeout for Positive Things
When my kids get out of hand fighting with one another I call a "timeout". Unlike traditional timeouts, that means I get out a pad of paper and pencil for each kid and they are expected to write ten...
