The Psychcology of Seeing Your Baby – First Ultrasound

The Psychcology of Seeing Your Baby – First Ultrasound

There is nothing like that first blurry image to endear you to that tiny life within your womb.  I had an ultrasound this week.  At 18 weeks so much can be seen.  It told me things that I already knew from the early flutters:  this baby is fond of action, movement, headstands, and head butting…

When Life Takes you by Surprise

Have you ever been really surprised by a turn life takes?  That is where I am right now.  Have you ever looked at your 14 and 10 year old and thought that, after six miscarriages, you had given more children more than a fair try, you had turned the corner of 40, and were really…

The Best Books You May Have Missed

Who was it that said that there is no friend like a good book?  “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend.  Inside of a dog, it is too dark to read.” – Grouch Marx An avid reader anyway, I have been walking my 14 year old through the really good books. And…

Making Christmas Activities into Traditions

Making Christmas Activities into Traditions

There are lots of choices for great activities this time of year.  But there are those few that really signal “holiday” to your family.  We have tried out many different events and experiences besides the usual decorating the tree and baking cookies: Going to see the Nutcracker ballet and Handel’s Messiah, ding dong cookie ditching,…

To Santa Claus or not to Santa Claus?

That is the question many Christians ask themselves when they begin the task of raising children.  Whether ’tis nobler to leave the jolly guy out of it altogether for fear of his supplanting Christ?  Or to enjoy the poetry and romance of a mysterious benefactor spreading goodwill toward men? If your conscience dictates that you…

Celebrating Advent as a Family

We love Christmas.  And Christmas is best celebrated in little increments, that bolster our anticipation of the big day.  After all, advent means “the coming”.  We celebrate the birth of our Lord, but even as we do, we identify with the Jews who waited for their Messiah with longing.  Advent is a time to examine…

Field Trips: Disney World – Hollywood Studios

I have one more park to write about.  I saved it for last because it is in such a state of renovation right now that unless you are a Star Wars fan, there is no point in visiting at the moment.  But I am a Star Wars fan.  So are my husband and kids.  That makes…

Field Trips: Disney World – Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom has a terrific mix of fun and science education.  We never miss an opportunity to ride the exciting rollercoaster featuring the legend of the Yeti – Expedition Everest or the white water rafting adventure Kali River Rapids!  Beware, someone in your boat will get wet!  But do not let that stop you.  They…

A word on politics

On this election day, and to ponder during the aftermath, I would like to say a word on politics.  Hear me out!  Everyone is so concerned about the presidential election and even the Supreme Court Justices that the president appoints.  I think the average American has missed the point.  The president matters, but the president…

Managing Playdates

As I am working here at my computer I am listening to my Sunshine doll and her friend playing in the pool and chatting about life from a 10 year old’s perspective.  They are sipping strawberry cream soda and giggling.  It is the sweetness of childhood friendship in a snapshot moment.   But not all…
