There are so many things about this time of year that I look forward to...like holiday coffee drinks, the smell of spices, pumpkin everything, eggnog, hot apple cider, Disneyland's magical holiday transformation, gingerbread, boots (especially my UGG boots), baking on a cold, rainy day, and snuggling up with my family for movie nights.
ABC Family is once again coun... Read More »

At just one year old, The Hub is currently airing in over 60 million homes nationwide, which to me is quite impressive. We were at the launch of the network around this time last year, which is a joint venture between Discovery Communications and Hasbro. There is something unique and different about The Hub, which features several shows I grew up with which have b... Read More »

Two weeks ago, I shared some of my favorite ways for getting our children excited about being outdoors. One of my favorite tips was to make the ordinary extraordinary. Playtime in the backyard can become a time of discovery and memory making simply by changing it up a bit.
One of my favorite childhood memories involved camping. Most of our camping trips were ... Read More »

Since our weeks are filled with activities and work, the weekends are reserved for catching up on quality time. The four of us typically have dinner together and hang out at home for some much needed down time. As our children get older, I hope that we'll have regular movie and g... Read More »

Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka as Dr. Seuss, has been iconic in transforming children's literature. The fact that only 50 words exist in Green Eggs and Ham demonstrates his brilliance. We introduced my three year old son to the books last year and he finds them silly and enjoyable. I know that beyond the fact that they're entertaining, his books are helping my son lear...

I don't have time to watch a lot of television. There is so much beauty to explore...new places to discover. I'm busy and I prefer it that way. But on those evenings when the kids have actually managed to go to sleep at a decent hour and I just want to relax and do nothing, I turn on Glee.
The show is really one of the best I've seen in a long time...and I'm ... Read More »

I watch very little television and absolutely no daytime television unless I'm sick in bed. Because I'm so busy with family, work, and life, I can't justify spending an hour or more in front of the television unless I'm multi-tasking. Most daytime television includes over dramatized soap operas, less-than-thrilling game shows, and the local news. But ther... Read More »

Before my husband and I had children, we didn't even think about whether or not we would be home or available to watch Ugly Betty or So You Think You Can Dance. These days, we're fortunate if we get to watch episodes in the same season! Just when the good shows are starting, we're bathing our little boy, reading books, and tucking him in for bed. After that we h... Read More »
