This past spring break we went to Disneyland for a few days. It was a very magical experience as you would expect Disney to be. We stopped by the customer service desk on our first day to request a...

I Miss My Mom

My husband and I thought we wanted to raise independent children. I blame him for putting that idea out into the universe. I’m conflicted to report -- I think we did. And, just like my now 21-year-old daughter, I couldn’t...
When I was 10, I wrote an essay about my dad for a newspaper contest. It was a Father’s Day prompt asking kids to talk about why their dad was the best dad, and the prize was a gas...
You know the superpower I’m talking about. You probably have it. And you know who probably does not? Your husband (if you’ve chosen to have one). This is what the memes have taught me. I’m talking about the Parenting While...

Exposing children to nature is a great way to grow strong brains and bodies, but it's also a way to teach an appreciation for the outdoors and talk about ways to help protect the Earth. A perfect opportunity to...
Becoming a mom has no doubt changed me as a person. I think every mom would agree that life after having kids is completely different, or at least majority of us would say that. Not in a bad way,...
