“Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies." It's that time of year again. The temperatures are starting to cool down. Kids everywhere are heading back to school. And that means, *some*...

Thanksgiving!
We had a lovely Thanksgiving. I should have gotten more pictures of some of my awesome dishes. But I guess I was a little too busy cooking. You know how it goes. (I also should have gotten some pictures of my lovely family, whom I am incredibly Thankful for. But yeah. That too.) ...

Everything is mom’s fault. And also the zombie apocalypse. 
Every now and then, it seems like there is all of this advice everywhere about how I should be doing the digital equivalent of locking my children in the basement and pretending like they don't exist. I get that social media is relatively new and we are making the rules up as we go.

I've talked before about how useless and counterproductive it can be to interrogate your children when there is a problem. First, “Why Questions” are like thinly veiled accusations. “Why did you do that?” means, “You shouldn't have done that! Kids need you to be clear with them.

Hannah is getting to the age where she can tell that her parents aren't as “cool” as some of the other parents. For instance, she has figured out (Lord only knows HOW?) that some of her friends use adult seat belts and some of her friends are, like her and her sister, still in little kid seat ...

I bought this from Pottery Barn Kids (and plan to keep it up year round, because I love it) and we have started talking about things we are thankful for at dinner. Except the girls sort of get stuck in a rut where Hannah is always thankful for the iPad and Maggie is always thankful for macaroni ...

Time outs, so controversial 
So one of the big parenting debates of late is whether or not time outs will ruin your kids. Because, you know, everything ruins your kids these days. (THE HORROR!!) Like how, a couple years ago they were all yelling at us for being helicopter parents who wouldn't let our kids take risks.

I cannot say enough great things about Max and his team. They made the process as smooth and straight forward as possible for me and my family. And when things got complicated after the seller filed bankruptcy before the close date, it was Max and his team that were able to make things happen and save the sale. Max knows what he's doing and you definitely want him in your corner.
