I am calling out to all of the fabulous moms who read Scottsdale Moms Blog for some serious morning help! We are only about a month into school and I already feel stumped on what to make the kids...
With Labor Day behind us, we’re full speed ahead into September and can now finally safely assume that all the kiddos are back in school. We’ve been back at it for full two weeks and as we find ourselves now...
I will absolutely admit that I am not a fan of the time it takes to pack a school lunch...let alone 2, soon to be 3 school lunches. So after the first 3 days of school and spending 30+...
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...
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...
Teaching a toddler about "work." Is this a good idea or not? I don't know the answer to that, but I do know my two-and-a-half-year-old yearns to know more about why I leave for work, and what I do at...
I have a ferocious reader on my hands. She is always asking to be read to, "reading"  to her stuffed animals or asking when we can get to the book store or library. That said, I'm always on the hunt for...
It’s Archives Week here at SMB, and this morning I’m featuring my favorite post of Joy's! You can read all her posts here. I think Joy and I were cut from some of the same cloth. The other night we...
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...
It's Archives Week here at SMB, and this morning I'm featuring my favorite post of Sarah's. You can read all her posts here. When we go to the zoo, the orangutan exhibit is often one of our favorite places to visit. On our...
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 other night as my husband and I were brushing our teeth, he looked over at me in the mirror and said "Whoa, look at your eyes!".  Now, one might assume that he was referring to my stunning bright...
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...
There are a million and one ideas out there on creatively displaying, saving and memorializing kids' artwork. Bottom line: it's impossible to preserve every last preschool glitter project or finger-painted masterpiece. Here's just one idea I stole got from...
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 new and just stopping in… welcome!  We’re so glad you’ve found Scottsdale Moms Blog! Today we’re back with another Mommy SOS topic.  If you missed our other Mommy SOS posts be sure to check them out.  We’ve covered some great...
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...
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,...
“A new year and a new routine. It’s gonna be fine” Well, that’s what I keep telling myself. This year I am moving on and I am closing the door on a relationship that no longer works in my life. But oh!...
