When it comes to technology and kids, I’ve always been a big fan of incorporating fun into learning. I really believe that learning does not have to be boring or painful, and in fact technology geared toward kids can make it exciting and a fun process. I think today’s tablets are an excellent example of just that – technology that is both educational and entertaining for kids.
Let me just put this out there – I hate to do laundry. Doesn’t everyone?
Sadly, laundry is one of those things that has to get done, and has to be done often.
Add some kids, or perhaps a baby or two, and you may be living in the laundry room.
There are so many ways to show someone you love them that don’t necessarily involve running out to buy something. So often, it’s the simple things that make the most impact.
I remember the day my seven year old came home from school, upset and unwilling to tell me why he had been crying. He eventually hugged me tight and told me that one of his classmates had said something to him – about me.
His classmate said, “Your mom is so fat.”
The holidays are here and that means excited children, tired parents and the occasional linty candy cane. There is so much to do, to wrap, to bake, and never enough time. But the thing I love most about the holidays is the opportunity to get together with the entire family, relax and indulge, all in the name of Santa.
