How I Tackle My Biggest Parenting Stress

Posted by: | No Comments

Being a mom to one girl might seem from the outside to be “easier” when it comes to dealing with the messes and stresses of parenting. There’ s only one mouth to feed, one body to clean and clothe, one bilingual mind to nurture. Yet, that also means that this one little person depends solely on her parents for everything from playing to venting. As a mom to an only child, the biggest stressor is that I become that oneRead More ...

Piercing Baby’s Ears — A Cultural Rite of Passage?

Posted by: | 37 Comments

There are rites of passage in many cultures that are sure to raise eyebrows, and even judgmental comments, from others. Many are justified for being inhumane and even torturous, but I refuse to believe that piercing my daughter’s ears when she was an infant falls within that spectrum.

School in my district starts in August, so just days after her 5th birthday, my girl will be starting a whole new and exciting stage in her life: Kindergarten in a dual immersion program! To tell you she’s excited, barely does it justice. She just can’t stop talking about all the new friends she’ll make, about how she’ll learn to read inRead More ...

Do You Shield Your Kids From Tragedies Like The Aurora Shootings?

Posted by: | 4 Comments

I know it’s a tough question to answer and it’s even tougher when we’re confronted by the type of news we all woke up to this morning: the tragic death of 12 people and over 50 more injured at the hands of a lone shooter in Aurora, Colorado. As parents, we immediately think about how that could have been you in that theater or, even worse, your child. Tragedies can strike to any of us at any moment and thatRead More ...

Posted by: | No Comments

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and outmywindow. Before you tell me you don´t really need another photo sharing app, because who can really handle one more (yes, my thoughts exactly!), I´ve got to let you in on a worthwhile discovery: outmywindow. Although in the surface it may seem like one more in the bunch of photo apps, it’s actually quite special because it offers something most, if not all, photo sharing and saving apps are missing: easy-to-use, out-of-the-box privacyRead More ...
