I’m not exaggerating when I tell you my child was sick five times this winter. With each virus lasting about a week, you do the math, because frankly, I’m pretty useless from the neck up after that many days in the house with a sick toddler. Then you add a few snow days on top of […]

I was recently at a playgroup with my daughters, where all the mothers were sitting in the kitchen enjoying coffee and visiting with each other.

One morning, I completely lost it with my 15-month-old. He had decided to play my least favorite game — he pointed at every piece of food in the kitchen, trying to tell me what he wanted to eat. Then he refused nearly everything. I offered him 57 different things before he finally agreed upon Cheerios. […]
At two years one week my son pulled off his diaper and peed in his potty. We did a little research, decided to potty train him using the three-day diaper-free method, and I am not kidding when I say that in three days he was completely potty trained — no accidents! So a few years […]
