I am calling out to all Scottsdale Moms Blog readers for your take on how to talk to your kids about the death of a family pet. I have a loving, energetic and emotional almost-three-year-old who loved our beloved yellow...
Ever wonder what your child's teacher REALLY thinks about you? If you're like me, you strive to create a healthy partnership with your child's teacher. And I've found, it really is a dance.  As parents, it takes understanding our steps...
As I wrote about on a previous post, the state of AZ has a new booster car seat law that happened to affect my {now} 7-year-old daughter. That left me with the task of finding a new booster for...
If I had a nickel for every time I pulled a hamstring chasing after my 18-month-old through the bras at Victoria’s Secret (he’s clearly a boob man) while my 5-year-old threw a fit because I wouldn’t buy her a...
It’s Archives Week here at SMB, and this morning I’m featuring my favorite post of Cate's. You can read all her posts here. I actually have a few favorite posts of Cate's. Although I'm not a homeschooler, one of my all-time favorites...
I usually consider myself pretty up to speed when it comes to the laws regarding the safety of my kids.  I've regularly reviewed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations (NHTSA) website for recommendations when it comes to car seat...
There is no greater desire of any parent than to make sure that our children are given every opportunity to remain healthy. We have all been to the 24-hour pharmacy in the dead of night to pick up a...
My kids will argue about anything. I am sure those of you with multiple kids that are about the same age can relate. They will argue about which movie they want to watch and who gets to get out...
Whoa - it got HOT. Every summer spring the 100+ degree days seem to sneak up on me. Don't get me wrong, I love the heat. Seriously. But when it's beautiful 70's in the morning with afternoon highs in...
I once heard a wise teacher say in passing that parents often have ridiculous expectations on their children. He said he sees them yelling at their kids TO SHARE.  But they have never taken the time to teach them...
The end of the school year is right around the corner (small tear rolls down my cheek), and it is about time that I start planning for my children’s teacher gifts. These are my suggestions for great teacher gifts,...

My world is filled with music. Instruments are in every room. Songs fill my hours. Scales drone into my nights. Among many other things, my husband, Sean, is a guitar teacher. What was a complete foreign language to me...
Taking multiple kids to a well check.  I'm pretty sure that this is one of my most disliked mommy must-do's.  Really, I try to avoid it like the plague.  Usually, I find other places for my kids to go...
I did a little trial egg hunt with my almost three-year-old last week and realized that she doesn't quite get it. She was all for me hiding the eggs, but then the "go and find them" part was a...

If you're like me, your ultimate goal in parenting is to raise a little person into a big person who not only spends as little time as possible in prison or on the sofa of a shrink, but one...
My kids love to do things “all by themselves” and this includes putting their DVD movies in and out of the player. Thus it is no surprise to anyone that we have quite a few movies with scratches, some...
Every family does birthdays differently. I love seeing traditions that families establish and snagging great ideas from other brilliant moms. So I thought I'd share a party that went over with great success this past weekend. In our house with...
You don’t need me to tell you that being a parent is tough stuff. From the moment we learn of our child’s conception (quite possibly for years prior to that) we navigate the chlorine-free, all-natural, no added chemicals, Montessori,...
