So You’re Into Health and Fitness?

What do you think one of the biggest triggers is for moms? The subject that causes every mom to bristle, to dole out advice? This subject hits them hard–it makes women passionate, devoted, sometimes even angry. But it is something that, if given the opportunity, every mom wants to talk about. It’s not kids, it’s not fashion, it’s not family. It’s not breastfeeding, it’s not sleep training. It’s not even vaccines. It’s weight. Nutrition. Fitness....

5 Words to Guarantee Patience in your Child

I am the first to admit I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to parenting. But this morning, after Baby T had come into the bedroom 1,367,268,901 times between 6 and 6:30 while I was trying to get that last 5 minutes of sleep, I decided not to bark at him. I don’t know what got into me. Instead, I said, “Thank you for being so patient and waiting for me to come out to turn on the TV.” Now, the fact is, he wasn’t really being patient.

Superhero Magnet Teacher Gift

Since preschool is ending this week {sniff}, I was inspired to make some teachers’ appreciation gifts for the amazing teachers that put up with, snuggle with, teach, and inspire my kids every day.

Today, Tmuffin is a space for parents to come and connect with other parents. Kids connect with other kids. Kids can explore in a playspace for toddlers to preschoolers to school-age kids. Parents can chill on our soft, marshmallow couches and share the trials and tribulations wonder of parenthood. But it wasn’t always that way. You may or may not know this, but Tmuffin started out as a blog. For about 3 years before I built a place for parents to connect in a physical space, we were...

Colorful Salt Paintings

As you probably know by now, my kids are all over the place. Which means getting them to create 2-dimensional art with crayons and paper was futile when they were toddlers. They are all about big movements (and big messes). Toddlers like to experiment with different tools and see what happens as a result of their actions. That’s why this salt painting project is a huge hit. It mixes a bit of science with art and comes out different every time. It’s pretty cheap and simple to do, but...
