I actually have that very statement posted on my large chalkboard you see when you enter our home.  I saw it somewhere, probably on Pinterest, and had to snag it for myself.  Gotta love Pinterest. A couple of my kids...
It always seems to amaze me, how much candy I buy every year for my neighborhood trick or treaters. Tonight, I will not only be handing out hand fulls of candy, but my kids will also be bringing home...

We live in an internet-centered world. So much of what we learn comes from the cyber world, and frankly, I don't know what I would do without it. When I was a kid, I had to go to the...
So, I’m running up against a parenting issue that has me kind of stumped at the moment… as has happened before, and I’m sure will happen MANY times again.  It’s the issue of teaching kids about personal safety, “stranger...

I get more than a little self conscious when I think too hard about my situation: I write for a mom blog, yet I'm not the person who spends most of the day with my kids. I change maybe...
