Anchor Mom: “Fun Mom”

I am anything but a fun mom. I can be a mom with scheduled fun – you know, the Children’s festival this weekend, planned cookie making, a Pinterest-inspired craft. The spontaneous fun is harder for me to get it on. The day seems to be filled with errands, nap time and appointments. That is, until … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Brushing Teeth

Right when my son’s first tooth popped in, I started brushing it. It wasn’t too bad, a tooth in the front – it was easy brushing. But sometime after the age of one, with a mouth full of teeth, things took a turn for the worse.  Every time I attempted to brush his teeth, he … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Preventing Tragedy

Just recently a Georgia father left his child in a hot car, resulting in the child’s death.  Originally he said it was an accident.  As early as just today, officials have said there are holes in his story. BUT – and there is a but, I wanted to focus less on this Georgia father and his … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: “Scary Guy” Nightmares

For the first time for as long as I can remember my son took a nap! He got a nap time, I caught up on all my TV shows and my big stack of laundry! It was amazing. That is, until he woke up. He started screaming, “I WANT TO BE AWAKE!” He ran into … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Online Safety

When I was in high school my parents always said the computer would be in an open space in our home. The reason – to keep me and my siblings safe online. Not only has the internet opened up from the world of AOL that I knew – children can now take the internet everywhere.  Smartphones and … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Last Minute Dad’s Day Gifts

Father’s Day kind of snuck up on me. In fact, just yesterday I realized I had nothing planned!  This is especially bad because I gave my husband a “lecture” about how important Mother’s Day is. I, of course, turned to Pinterest, like in all times of crafty need. Here are a few of the cute … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Healthy Road Trip

Road-tripping with a talking toddler for the first time, I was shocked when I heard from the backseat, “Are we there yet?”  Is that built in? But even worse – the apple slice tornado – my son throwing apple slices all over the car saying “I don’t like these!” He does like apple slices, but … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: It’s a …

BOY! We decided to take part in the new trend of gender reveal parties and throw one for baby #2! We had our guests spray silly string – to find out it was blue – which means a little boy is on the way! My son loved it and just kept yelling “silly string, silly … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: Boy or Girl?

There’s nothing like a guessing game where you have 50% chance of being right (and 50% of being wrong). Our big gender reveal is tomorrow, but before the big day I am taking guesses! Here’s how the gender myths line up: Myth #1: Heart Rate – if the baby’s heart rate is above 140 bpm, … Continue reading »

Anchor Mom: “A Crib is like a Bike”

Before putting J to bed the other night, he announced, “A crib is like a bike.”  He’s two, he says crazy things – so we just nodded our heads and moved on with the night.  That is, until we checked on him to find him straddling the side of the crib (like a bike) peddling his feet. It … Continue reading »
