First, I need to let you all know I do not have Snapchat. I also do not have TikTok. I think I have a Twitter account, but I'm not really sure how to use it. I also have Instagram,...
"Mommy, read 'Hop on Pop.'" "I want milk." "Mommy, play puzzle." These are only a handful of the commands I’m given multiple times a day by my 2-year-old son. We are working on saying "please" and "thank you." Sometimes he gets it...
While having a conversation with my youngest son, I recognized a facial expression I know well. Oh my, I do that.  I remember watching our boys play in their first soccer games when they were each around 4 years old...
I’ve been a mother for five years now, and I pretty much consider myself an expert. Don’t worry, I’m laughing hysterically at myself. Most (all) days I have no idea what I’m doing. However, there are definitely some very...
Sitting on the floor near the oranges and apples in the market, my then 3-year-old screamed, "I hate shopping! I want to go home and play with my trucks!" "He's fine," I reassured my fellow shoppers as they stopped and...
As a former water safety instructor and lifeguard — and likely more importantly the daughter of parents who experienced a toddler drowning — I take water safety extremely seriously. The many parents who have, unfortunately, experienced this tragedy know these...
When a child hits a "money-saving milestone," it can mean a complete lifestyle change for a family. Certain milestones, like aging out of daycare into public school, transitioning from formula to solids, and successfully potty training can have a...

There are days where my oldest son is ready to jump on the school bus and head to kindergarten. And then there are days where he looks me in the eye and confesses that he’s nervous about a new...
Gardening has become one of my favorite activities (surprisingly enough to me!). Maybe it's being outside and feeling the earth after a long New England winter. But I also think it's, in part, because it is something I can...
I graduated from high school in 1999. I'm turning 40 this summer. And even though I've been removed from the halls of Lincoln High School for 22 years, I don't forget what high school felt like — and how...
I remember each of my children’s first birthdays. I remember the stress in making it just right. From the decorations to the food, from the cake to the favors, from the pictures that needed to be taken to all...
Biking is one of the best outdoor activities to keep your kids active this summer. It’s an awesome way for kids to get their daily exercise in while still maintaining a safe distance from others. If your child not yet...
And here we are... a year later. Starting the second round of quarantine birthdays.  Last year, our world shut down on March 12. That was the last day of school. Stores were running out of toilet paper and paper towels....
I'll admit it: I lie to my toddler about food from time to time. Oh, you want ice cream for breakfast? Sure, here's a frozen yogurt. I continue to be impressed by my son Jackson's developing palate and am thankful he...
