WFMW:  DIY Piggy Banks Teach the Value of Money

I’ve been trolling the internet for the perfect piggy bank for a while.   When my kids were little (even littler than now), Grandma got them beautiful personalized ceramic pigs.  They were darling, but it didn’t take long for my little darlings to play with them and crack them.  They also constantly took the money...

WFMW:  Recipe Organization

I’ve been fairly disorganized all summer.  Now that school is in session and life is running at full speed, I’ve been working on getting some order back in my life. One area that always gives me trouble is recipes.  I love to search for ones I like on the internet, in cookbooks, or collect...

School Lunches that Work For Me (and You!)

If had been more organized, I would have participated in LAST week’s WFMW, the theme of which was, ahem… organization.   Unfortunately, I’m not that organized.   However, now that I officially have a child enrolled in elementary school, it’s time to get myself in gear.    One of the things I’m dreading most this school year...

WFMW:  Teaching Your Kids to Ride a Bike

Our 5yo and 4yo are both good bike riders and learned without training wheels, so I thought it might be worthy of a post to mention our teaching technique. I use the term “our” loosely, because my hubs was the primary teacher. The first, and most important step, in my mind, is to invest...

WFMW:  Stop & Go – Managing Naptime

Naptime is an important component to my sanity in our house – without it, I am much more apt to become “the meanest momma”, and not in the good way.   My middle child has started to enter that difficult phase where he doesn’t always want or need a nap, but is a grumpy grump...
