4 Perfectly Legal Solutions to Childhood Boredom!
Happy New Year!  It’s the time when adults make resolutions to improve our physical and mental health, and children do their best to drive us to drink.  They’re bored.  It’s days and days since they were showered with new toys and brought to parties and pantos, yet school is still out.  Poor lambs have absolutely nothing to do.  They are understandably out of their little minds with boredom.  And boredom is the root of all evil.  Bored children are a threat to life…

My Baby’s First Christmas!

My Baby’s First Christmas!
I had a long, slow road to motherhood, so by the time my son’s first real Christmas rolled around I thought I was ready.  (Rule number one: You are never ready as a parent.  You might be ready for something, but your child will have something totally different up his sleeve.)  I confess, I’d been stockpiling adorable baby toys for years.  I hardly needed to do any shopping.  See why I thought I was ready?  Here are just a few of the ways my one year old son…

4 Ways Grandmothers Torment You at Christmas!
Lost in the miracle of bringing new life into the world is the miracle of what happens when people become grandparents.  Science can explain the many complicated changes that happen to a woman’s body with pregnancy and childbirth, but research has yet to discover exactly what happens to the new mother’s mother.  Possibly this is because researchers are afraid to ask.  So we don’t know if it is shift in brain chemistry or just plain old magic. But if you are a new…

15 Excuses My Kids Give Me For Not Eating!
Meal time in any house with a small child can be quite a spectacle. If it’s not sweets, cheese, or seen eaten by another sibling then it’s not going to be easy to get past their lips. How many times have you heard, “But I don’t like that” when they were just eating that very same meal the week before? We know. Anything to get out of a (healthy) meal. Guess they figure if they try it once that covers them for life (wouldn’t that be nice). But kids love to protest.…
