‘Score Big’ with Discounted Event Tickets

rebeca  Friday, August 29, 2014

My husband has a new BFF. This is huge for us because generally speaking, the kids are too young and I’ve had my fill of baseball, basketball, racing and every other testosterone filled event he enjoys. He now has a buddy to do all of those things with and I don’t have to feel guilty […]

Losing My Religion…and Searching for Answers

rebeca  Thursday, September 5, 2013

There’s something that’s bothering me. My faith is shaken. I’m not sure if it’s been a progression or if something snapped with me. For a while I was just angry and that was OK. People can relate with that. We’re all angry that things don’t go our way. Frustrated that our burdens seem to overwhelm […]

Both of my kids are a bit young to have their own cell phones. But, they are getting to the age where we’re thinking about investing in a piece of technology for them….and the thought of that sort of scares me! My oldest is 6 and while I know we’re probably late joining this game, […]


My Kindergarten Anxiety

rebeca  Tuesday, July 30, 2013

My son has started kindergarten and I’m a little more apprehensive about it than I expected. OK, I’m a lot more apprehensive! It’s not that I’m hung up on the fact that he’s growing up. I mean, every parent feels a little sadness over the speed with which our children grow. But that’s not what’s […]


Finding New Friends through Parent Groups

rebeca  Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I’m not the type of person who makes friends easily. I mean, I’m a social person but I lack the grace part of the equation. It wasn’t so difficult when I was in school because it was easier to make friends through study groups or extra-curricular activities. When I was a young adult, friendships revolved […]

I’ll Pass on the Parenting Advice

rebeca  Tuesday, April 9, 2013

One of the reasons I became a blogger is because I love giving advice. I read a lot and consider myself to be an information junky. And, I like being a resource for others. Perhaps I get it from my parents who are natural teachers. (One is actually a teacher; the other is a business […]

“Oh, The Places You’ll Go” End of School-Year Tradition

It’s not too much longer till the school year comes to a close, so I wanted to share this amazing idea I found on…you guessed it…Pinterest. You all know the book Oh, The Places You’ll Go from Dr. Seuss. It’s a great graduation gift. But, Lisa from Lisa’s Workshop suggests grabbing a copy when your kid is young. At the end of each school year, give it to your child’s teacher to sign or write a note. When you’re child graduates (hard to think of!), you’ll have a lovely gift to give him/her. Lisa has even included some lovely tags in her blog post, so make sure to go check it out.

For more clever ideas like this, make sure to follow me on Pinterest.
