My daughter is taking gymnastics class once a week. Here, she is learning to walk across a beam without falling. The lower balance beam, which is a few inches off the ground, is crossed quickly, without hesitation, without help. However the balance beam that is raised high off the ground, approximately 3 feet, cannot be so easily crossed. She climbs… Read more →

A Review of Home Depot’s Kids Workshops

Last month, my husband made a great discovery. It was a Saturday, the first Saturday of the month. I was getting ready for my annual mommy cookie exchange party, and my daughter was being a great helper with frosting cookies.

Creating New Year’s Tradition

Today is New Year’s Eve. NYE used to mean wearing lots of sparkles and glitter, drinking glasses of champagne, and partying late into the night. Life has really changed.

Yes, I would have never guessed she would manage to figure it out either. She has even managed to FaceTime. Who would have thought, right? I’ve been thinking about you quite a bit lately,… Read more →

My Daughter’s Balloon

There’s something about a helium balloon. Just one, on its own, evokes feelings of youthful happiness. A reminder of when times were simpler, when one balloon tied to the wrist could make me believe I was special.  There’s something magical about how it floats upwards. Happily, it seems to bounce with me as we walk in unison. Laughing and smiling… Read more →
