Anyone who knows our family knows we are screen light. There are certain places where our kids will never (and yes, I know parents say "never" about a lot of things- but I mean it) use screens- an example...
I’m that mom. That one that you love to roll your eyes at. It’s OK. I get it. Really, I do. I go overboard. I have seasonal decor for holidays that most people find ridiculous to decorate for. I...
It is almost a guarantee that someday your kid will get a device that will allow them to email, text, use apps and maybe even make actual phone calls. (Although, if the device can make phone calls, it is...
Your son is finally, FINALLY potty trained! Your little girl took her first step! That family vacay went off without a hitch and the kids had so much fun! To social media, we go! In today’s generation, social media...
One of the things that brings me great joy in this life is beauty. I adore beautiful things and places. I love home design, photography, and art. Tidy and impeccably decorated spaces make my heart sing. I just learned...

There is no shortage of extracurricular activity choices in the Kansas City area, but since each kid is unique and has varied interests, maybe there hasn’t been a “click” for every kid. Luckily, there’s a new option in town. We...
I moved to Kansas City for a job in 2004, when the idea of kids was not on my mind. The plan was to complete a three-year contract then move back to New England to be closer to family. I...
In our household with three daughters, there are lots of princesses. I get the appeal - princesses seem to have lovely adventures and wear fabulous dresses. My girls love fancy dresses and jumping in mud puddles, sometimes together. There...
