Spoons, Lying and Relaxing This weekend, I celebrated Independence Day like most people. I hung out with my family. I read, I slept, I grocery shopped and I played games with my kids. My oldest daughter just got home from camp with a couple of games to teach the family. I knew both of them, […]
What do you value? I have 4 talented and gifted children. Each are different, unique and quirky. Discussing them, their activities, their talents and our family schedule, I’ve found myself having the same discussion several times over the last couple of weeks during this topic of parenting.

I’m supposed to be sitting and writing. Instead I’m trying to stop the fighting, yelling and screaming between my 3-year-old and my 6-year-old. Last night I had six 9 and 11-year-old girls over.
