How Can I Trick a (9 Month) Fruitatarian?

I admit it. I have been spoiled with the eating habits of Boog, my almost 3-year old son. He’s always eaten pretty much everything that was put in front of him (when asked if he wants Brussels sprouts for dinner he often yells “Yum! Brussel Sprouts!” Seriously.)

Now, I am not a “girly-girl” but I do love a nice pair of shoes, and was so impressed and excited that little Lovey had a definite opinion about what shoes she wanted to wear.

Teaching our Children about Winning & Losing

Okay…I’m going to get into a lot of trouble with this post. I grew up as the youngest of four, including two older brothers. Winning & Losing was something we did, DAILY! And the whole idea about “it’s okay to lose” was not common language in our household. Actually it was quite the contrary. Recently, [...]
