  • There is help for single parents struggling to make ends meet

    There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, She had so many children she didn't know what to do; She gave them some broth without any bread; She whipped them all soundly and put them to bed. Not exactly sound parenting. But who could blame her? All those kids running around – and she obviously had...

  • Vocation: My Mission in Life

    The dictionary defines the word ‘vocation’ as a particular occupation, business, or profession; calling. It can also be defined as a function or station in life to which one is called by God. Growing up Catholic, I heard this word a lot when I was in school. I think it was the Catholic Church’s not-so...

  • A Love for the Routine

    I approach this blog with trepidation. Following yesterday’s entry, it is obvious there is very little about my life and my day-to-day that is routine. Perhaps that’s a good thing? Perhaps that is a blessing in disguise? Not having the same thing to do every day. Not having the same actions to perform...

  • Pajamas...Not just for sleeping anymore

    What's the deal with all the kids wearing Pajamas everywhere these days? I was recently at a restaurant when 2 pre-teen girls walked in and they both wearing pajama bottoms as pants. And they were with parents! At what point did an item of clothing meant for lounging and sleeping become acceptable...

  • Daddy's Little Girl

    It is in most women's nature to nurture; however for men this nurturing side may not come as easily. Sometimes fathers are not sure what to do with their children, especially when they have a daughter. Sure with a son it's different because boys will be boys no matter what age, so it may be easier...

  • These Kids Have Horrible Parents

  • Cooking kids: Summer camps that last a lifetime

    OK. So here’s the latest in summer camps: cooking camp. For a small fortune, we sent our 7-year-old son last week to learn all about kitchen sanitation, grocery shopping, veggie chopping and bread baking. Of course the best way to learn is by doing, so at camp he made his own lunch and washed his own...

  • Considering Grassroots Free School and the Summerhill education philosophy

    I'm considering transferring my 7-year-old son to a local private school--Grassroots Free School--that’s structured according to the philosophies of England’s Summerhill School. This educational model is based on the premise that, given the opportunity, children will learn on their own because of...

  • The lies people tell

    Lies people tell I’d like to think most people are basically honest, but when I look back over the years … Your face is going to freeze like that. The easiest way to catch a bird is to sprinkle a little salt on its tail. You can grow up to be anything you want to be. Smoking will make you look cool....

  • 4-year-old Tallahassee boy, Christopher Robles, dies after being hit by car at Hartsfield Elementary

    Just minutes ago a 4-year-old boy died in front of my son’s school. There is no one to blame in this tragedy; he jumped out of his mom's car and darted into the street in front of another car. There was an SUV parked next to his parent’s car, so the teacher who hit him couldn’t see him in the second...
