I don’t know about you but since I became a mother (and a stay at home one at that), I find that my moods shift so much more than they did pre-kids.

Putting on a playlist of songs that ALWAYS lift my mood.

An Experienced Dad’s Thoughts on Discipline

My friend Mike is back and he’s wading into some controversial waters and taking on how to discipline your children. It’s a hot button topic right now but Mike’s not scared to talk about it – and that’s what makes him unique. Well, that and his sense of humor.

As always, you’re gonna chuckle, but you also might learn something from this experienced dad whose children are all grown now – and turned out fabulously, if he does say so himself. I also happen to know his wife, and I imagine she had a lot to do with this. In fact, make sure you read all the way to the end to see why she’s always been his trump card.

With no further adieu, here is the latest in the What He Said by Mike series. We want to hear your (respectful) thoughts and opinions so be sure to weigh in. [Read more...]

17 Facts about Johnny Appleseed

In honor of Johnny Appleseed‘s upcoming birthday, here is a really funny (and possibly informative) list of facts my son taught me last year when he came home from a day at kindergarten. Tell me, which fact stands out in your mind?

Apparently, September 26 is Johnny Appleseed’s birthday.  I wouldn’t know that if it weren’t for my kindergartner because, although I’ve seen a lot of obscure occasions marked on calendars, that’s one that doesn’t quite make the cut.

In fact, I know almost nothing about the man except that he supposedly scattered apple seeds all over the continent.  And he played a pipe and children followed him around.  Or maybe I’m confusing that with a scene from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Cut to this evening when I asked Asher what he learned about in school today.  My usually reticent kindergartner began to spew forth information about Johnny Appleseed.  And I have to say, I thought his recall was pretty terrific considering he’d also never heard of the man before today.

Then again, there’s a distinct possibility he confused a few of the facts.  I’ll let you decide.
