Kid Time: Quality over Quantity

You could imagine my sigh of relief when a new study came out that said quality trumps quantity when it comes to spending time with your children. My reality is that I’m at work more than I’m at home. When I’m with my kids I do my best to embrace the moment and make it one that is all about us. These ‘moments’ are sometimes just minutes but I know it’s really important to my son and daughter. Check out the story TODAY did on the study.

Ugly Truth of Having a Baby

Hi from New York! I’m up here all week guest hosting Early TODAY and First Look on MSNBC. I wanted to say thank you to everyone who shared my post on What I Wish I had Known Before Bringing Home Baby. It was the  TODAY Show’s Parenting Team question of the month. On Thursday tune in to the TODAY Show during the 8AM hour. I’ll be joining some other moms to talk about all the weird things that happen when you’re expecting! Should be a fun and informative conversation. See you on TODAY!

Me Lucky Charms!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day all!!

The Fall!

The hug after!

Don’t read with your eyes shut!

One of my favorite things to do is visit schools and read to kids. I’m so afraid in this digital age the art of reading a good book will be lost. I love showing children how fun it can be and how much we can learn from reading. I visited Brookfield Elementary in Chantilly where I got to read to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. I read Dr. Seuss’ “I can read with my eyes shut”. The kids loved it and in the end agreed when we close our eyes we can miss a lot of great and interesting things out there. Thanks for the invite!
