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...

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...
After my daughter turned one, I started "entertaining" the idea of helping her break the binky habit. I say "entertain" because I had more fun researching ideas of how to do the transition, and "polling" my friends than actually doing...
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...

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...
Potty Training. Those two words together will make any new mom squirm. Unfortunately it isn't an optional activity  in the world of mothering (darn it!).  So alas, it was time to potty train my oldest, Nora! There are so many questions that...

Some days are easier than others. This was one of those days when everything I did with my toddler, a battle insued.  Sadness errupted and, for her, the world ended.  Me: "Which bib would you like to wear?" The Tantrum Monster:...
As a cloth AND disposable diapering mom, I hear on the playground all sorts of crazy tips about diapers, where to get them, who has the best ones AND even how to get the stinkies out of my cloth...
