mommy of: Jayce Adriel

Age:a year and a half

 

I have myself a little man on my hands. i dont consider him little boy, just my little man. it's too funny to see how he's so sure of things. For an example, for me to get him to settle for a little, just 20 minutes, so i can get some cleaning done i pop in Tarzan 2 (with zugore), which is his favorite movie. he will find his little chair plop it right in front of the TV and sit and watch it. move his little shoulders and…

Strong mom-baby relationships may protect against later obesity

It's probably happened to you at least a few times in your life: You're stressed or sad or lonely, and to help yourself feel better, you head to the kitchen and grab another bowl of ice cream/candy bar/bag of chips. It's called self-soothing, and starting during late childhood, it's something some of us do a lot. People…

Dr. Jen Is In: How to help your toddler get used to the potty

My daughter turns two at the beginning of November and we would like to start potty training her pretty soon. However, she is very, very afraid of the potty. I think it is the flushing that scares her to death since she says, "Flush it?! Flush it?!" and then runs in the opposite direction whenever we flush it. What should I do to encourage her to use the potty (starting with the little potty) without traumatizing her? -Jamie 

First of all, your almost…

The reason why my son is already a lawyer.

Ah, the art of negotiation. It fosters heavy communication. It helps create debate. It's the drive that helps us develop our skills to survive as human beings.

And its my toddler's way of making me pull my hair out. 

He's a smart little cookie, that toddler of mine. At 3 and 1/2 he has learned that his talking skills and asking questions skills have prepped him for wearing us down. 

I think I have mad patience. I can stand up strong to him and look down at those sweet…

Joking with toddlers builds life skills

Sharing some LOLz with the baby can boost brain power. A recent study says joking and pretending with toddlers can build life skills.

The research by the Economic and Social Research Council found that when parents are joking or pretending, they send their toddlers verbal and physical cues to help them understand that they are kidding around, and in what way. When you're joking with your tot,…

A toddler lagging in the language department may not be a cause for concern. A new study says late talkers show no increased risk of behavioral or emotional problems later in life.

Researchers at the University of Western Australia studied nearly 1,300 children, starting when they were 2 years old up until they were 17. Children who were considered late talkers did…

Cardamom Pear Almond Plum Sauce



I first made this on Mother's Day. I was determined not to cook. After all, others were supposed to cook for me. I was supposed to take off, leave meals up to them. Right?



Yea. Not so much.



I love feeding my family. My sons, especially. It's part of how I mother. And there was no better way to celebrate Mother's Day than to savor the ways that I love mothering, the ways that I love making my boys happy.



So, I… Continue

The Fresh Beet Band: Two Beet Salads for the Whole Family (Even Baby!)



Okay. How many got my "Fresh Beet Band" reference? Mamas to toddlers, you with me? New mamas, you'll understand as soon as you start watching Nick Jr.



But, I digress. (Is it still digressing if you start off on an irrelevant note?) Clearly the heat has gotten to me. I'm delirious and it isn't even bad today. It's just that this summer isn't letting up! I can be a pretty hardcore cook but, these days, I'm all about no-cook… Continue

Zucchini, Mint & Ricotta Two Ways



This time of year brings an abundance of zucchinis. Anyone who's ever had zucchinis in their garden knows that this good stuff grows like crazy. You can never have enough zucchini recipes! I learned about my favorite way to prepare zucchini in Rome, where they often pair it with mint and ricotta. The combination is fresh, light and simply delicious, perfect for spring and summer meals.



The easiest way to bring together these… Continue

Three's a Crowd?? Co-sleeping...when to stop

So here I sit in my bedroom with my entire family. I on my laptop, and my family surrounding me on all sides. You cannot even hear the tick tick of the keys over the rumbling snores coming from each mouth. My beloved, father of my children who would give a freight train a run for its money, my darling diva 2 1/2 year old daughter between us, my youngest in his cradle to my right, and even the family dog, Peeve, at the foot of the bed, competing with daddy to see who can snore louder. Is this… Continue

Time (even pregnancy time) Flies When You Have a Toddler

Where does the time go?



We found out that I was expecting last November and Summer 2010 felt like it was a long ways away. My first pregnancy crawled by as I read and reread What to Expect When You're Expecting and a half dozen other pregnancy books that I'd picked up at Barnes and Nobles.



But second pregnancies, especially when you have a toddler running around the house, are entirely different. Sadie will turn two a couple of weeks… Continue
