My husband and I looked at each other shocked. We had just heard our daughter say something we never thought would be an issue. Our gorgeous little mixed race girl, only three years old, said she didn't think she...
Minecraft.  I can't believe I'm writing a post about Minecraft 101, but here we are! My son loves Minecraft - the only thing he loves more than playing Minecraft is talking about Minecraft.   When my son first wanted to start...
The other night I had a "rupture" in communicating with my son.  In other words, I erupted. It wasn't the first time (although it probably was the largest eruption) and it probably won't be the last. I certainly wish it...
Would you know what to do if faced with an emergency at home? I Google everything, dumb things like how to bake a potato and how to open a Hatchimal. While in my frantic state I didn’t think to...
September was PCOS Awareness Month. What is PCOS? Medically it stands for PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome. That is a hormonal disorder causing enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges. Is it painful...? For me yes, it can be. Meanwhile for some women...

I am the mother of two children born with hearing loss. I decided to write about our journey navigating through this process on my blog, My Battle Call, and my Facebook Page. Our family chooses cochlear implants to provide our children...
As long-time residents of Orange County, CA, it is easy to forget that we live in a bona fide vacation destination that millions of families visit from across the globe every single year. From Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm...
Hello Friends! It’s been a while. Actually, nearly a year. I’ve had lots of run-ins with you in the real world and I keep hearing, “I haven’t seen you post anything lately….” Why the sabbatical? Life got complicated. Fast. Where...
And neither are you. I don’t advocate for spanking because I know it doesn’t actually affect long-term behavior change (and it models violence). But darn it, some days I lose my cool and it seems like a completely viable...
