Finding Mommy Mentors

Recently I came across a free, mom-to-mom support organization: the Postpartum Society of Florida. Their small core of about 10 active volunteers “engages in more than 1,200 personal contacts with Florida mothers and babies, as well as between 100-200 guidance and training contacts with perinatal providers and social support volunteers.”It seemed a bit odd to me at first. We don’t want strangers to offer unsolicited advice, but we do want strangers we can establish relationship with and who may, at times, advise us as we seek it out.

The Pre-Holiday Toy Purge

So, you’ve been decking the halls, stirring your eggnog, and slathering thick frosting atop your gingerbread house. The fun times that can be had during December are (usually) worth it, but what we rarely like to think about is the January fallout from ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS. And for me in particular, that is the massive influx of toy madness that my three children receive each and every December.

10 Toddler Chores that Aren't More Work for You Later

If you’re like me, you need little helpers. For me, I have 2. My daughter is 5 and my son is 3. I try to include them in helping with day-to-day duties. But with some chores, like dishes, toddler help means a bigger mess for me, ultimately. And although I want to teach them the value of contributing to the group, some days I just need help that's not more work for me later. Here are some toddler chores that will help you stay sane and be productive at the same time.Clean up, pick up, put awayMy kids are not huge...
