When the snow moved in on Friday, it was fast and furious. One second, I was lamenting that school was pre-emptively canceled and the next the lawn had a full-on dusting of snow.

Paige’s gleeful giggles have a pure melodic quality to them. When they fill the kitchen, it echos across the house — a sweet sound that never fails to make me smile. Hers are quickly joined by Will’s uncontrollable laughter. His laughter is loud and unwieldy and so, so happy. It’s joy, unleashed. We are so […]

Over the last week, our small town has come together time and again to mourn, cry and laugh. There have been long, meaningful hugs. We’ve rehashed where our kids were and what they saw and heard. And we’ve found moments of levity to laugh about. Those have been so important.  Over the last week, we’ve […]

Weeknights can get so crazy. When the kids get home from school, it always seems like a mad rush to do homework, sometimes have a snack and get dinner going. But I am usually still working. And trying to oversee said homework. And managing a house full of kids and dogs. This all creates a […]

Thanksgiving is now less than a week away. But we’re going to take a tiny break from all the Stress-Free Thanksgiving discussion to talk about something equally important: Friday night fun. Just about every Friday, the kids and I dash off to the library for books and movies after school. And when we return, we […]

I hate talking about the weather. It seems like such a menial thing — like I can’t think of anything else to say. But over the past few days, the weather has been weighing heavily on my mind. I’ve paid a little more attention to forecasts because there’s a storm coming. It’s a big one […]

Friday night in our house is Family Movie Night. It’s a family tradition that started in the dark days of winter a few years ago when I felt like work was encroaching too much on life. So I decided to do something about it … and one Friday, I announced it was Family Movie Night, […]

Can we talk about gardening for a sec? Look, I totally failed at it this year. Miserably. How about you? In the past, I have made a good effort to grow some of our own food. And every season I have put up at least a little fresh, local produce for winter. But this year? […]

Sometimes, cooking with kids is all about teaching them measuring, mixing and knife skills. We do this a lot. The kids and I talk about the different measurements we use and measure things out together. They are often the ones to whisk-shift dry ingredients for me or to stir together whatever needs stirring.

When Will stepped off the bus today, I was shoveling the mush at the end of my driveway (courtesy of the kindly town plows!) for the fourth time today. “Guess what, Mommy?” he asked. “What, Wills?” I answered. “I am going to go down to the house and get my snow stuff on and go […]
