Parenting is one of the most rewarding experiences a person will ever go through.  From the miracle of birth all the way to hearing Pomp and Circumstance played by a college band, there is so much to be thankful for, so much that our child has given to us simply by coming into our lives.  [...]

We can say a lot to our little one with our actions, but don’t forget that you can say so much more in a facial gesture or the look in your eyes. Our children have a lot to learn yet when it comes to having a conversation about how to behave at the park. Not [...]

We imagine our unborn child and the day she will arrive, and we begin to day dream about all the things that we’re going to do: how the days will be filled with joy, laughter and only a few tears, but even then, tears of joy.  Then the reality sets in. There are dirty diapers, [...]

As well-adjusted as our young toddler is, there is no simple way to say “Mommy is going back to work, and you’re going to spend the whole day with a bunch of people you don’t know!”  It’s going to be his biggest change in life so far, as well as one of the most difficult [...]
