First Day of Kindergarten Coping Books for Kids…and Moms!!

Posted by on Aug 5, 2014 in Be Inspired, Books for Kids, Books for Moms | 0 comments

In just under a month, I will be sending my last kid to kindergarten. I thought it would be easier the third time around, but every time I think about it, I get all choked up and my very observant (and somewhat insensitive) 7-year-old says, “Mom…are you going to cry…AGAIN??” And of course, he’s (annoyingly) right. So...

Review: “All Joy and No Fun” a new and interesting parenting book by Jennifer Senior

I caught snippets of an NPR interview with the author of this book All Joy and No Fun while I was driving around in my car running errands one day. I was immediately hooked by the title of this book alone. As my parenting  responsibilities have grown exponentially since adding a second child (who is turning into an extremely...

Books for Adventurers: I Promise Not to Suffer by Gail D. Storey

Eye to eye with a mountain lion. Endless switchbacks up the frozen face of a mountain. Bone-chilling gusts of wind. Torn, sprained, and aching muscles. Soggy clothes by day and frozen socks by night. Exhaustion. Hunger. And she promises not to suffer? As I read Gail Storey’s account of “thru-hiking” the...

Posted by on Aug 8, 2013 in Be Informed, Be Inspired, Books for Moms, Career "Re-Entry" Series, Featured Posts | 2 comments

One of the books on my reading list this summer was Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook and the new (and initially reluctant) face of modern feminism. I was excited to read the book, because I was going to hear her speak at BlogHer in July, and a bit skeptical, because I had read some scathing reviews...

Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler

With The Great Gatsby finding its way into theaters a couple of months ago, it isn’t surprising that the author, F.

The Life of Pi: A Book and Movie Review (now released on DVD!)

The Life of Pi by Yann Martel has been on my reading list for awhile now, but when the film adaptation was released I moved it closer to the top. After the film took home several academy awards, I persuaded my book club to read it….I really wanted to watch the movie and I always try to read the book first! When I originally heard about the...

Books for Mom: Bebe Day by Day

I personally find the recent trend of books about French parenting a little annoying. Maybe I get a little defensive when American parents get toasted for enrolling their kids in AYSO soccer and then praising them when they kick the ball. Or maybe I want to roll my eyes when I hear French mothers are horrified when they don’t wear matching...

Play These Games {A great book and a giveaway!}

The last month of truly needing to play inside is {hopefully} coming to a close.  A Michigan girl can hope right?  But with the last couple weeks of snow and slush left and spring break right around the corner, and let’s be honest…..some rainy spring days in our future, it’s always nice to have some inside games, that are novel,...
