Every day, my kindergartner reminds me how many days he has left in kindergarten — and how many days until he is officially a first grader. And I nostalgically reminisce about how lightning fast this school year has flown.
I'm amazed by what my son has learned academically this year. Yes, I knew in September that the curriculum would be more rigorous than it had been when I was in kindergarten, but I didn't realize my son would be reading me 'Green Eggs and Ham' by Dr. Seuss' birthday. It is truly lovely to be read to by your child.
Spring has just about sprung — the season of light and life, blooming joy after a long, dark, brutal winter. And yet, I worry. Truthfully, it doesn't matter the season. I worry regardless. I've always been a worrier, and this only became amplified when I became a mother. It consumes me, at times. Some of this worrying is a natural part of motherhood.
There’s always hope that this milder weather will stick and that days spent outside for hours are just around the corner. That March, which came in like a bit of a lion with its foot of snow, will go out like a peaceful, gentle dove, segueing into a perfect summer.
Two of my goals for the New Year are to get more creative with my meal planning, and to cook as low-carb as possible in a Whole30-ish way. I’ve done Whole30s in years past, and one of the biggest benefits I've felt was a clearer mind and calmer sense — huge perks in my chaotic world! Here are a few family-favorite recipes we'll rotate throughout this winter and beyond!
I’ve reached the point in motherhood, now five years in, where the oft-repeated adage, "The days are long, but the years are short" is really starting to show itself in full color to me, each and every day. When I began this journey, I did not have the faintest clue about how the carousel of time would carry my children and me around and around, up and down, from different emotions and milestones, every second of every single day.
After much anticipation and excitement, it's finally here — the 2018 holiday season! Are your kids as excited as mine are to get their merry on and celebrate the magic of this season? If you're looking for some out-of-house entertainment to celebrate the holiday season in and around Boston (that won't add to the already-hefty cost of the holidays), I've culled a list of some free and low-cost family-friendly holiday happenings to check out!
