There's always been a special place in my heart for Christmas mornings. As children, we'd scurry downstairs in the wee hours to dump the loot out of our stockings and fill 'em back up before we woke our parents. It was...
This month on the blog – in conjunction with Britax – we are thrilled to share a series of posts on child safety in honor of Month of the Military Child. Not only do Britax car seats meet all...
Christmas is quickly approaching, and if you're anything like me then you're now entering panic mode. Between Christmas shopping and budgeting and planning a holiday menu, you're probably feeling pretty wiped out already.  Here Comes the Holidays ... and the stress. Moms...
Snail Mail Still Matters I am entrenched in our on-demand, instant gratification world of communication. Landline phones and calling cards seem so outdated that it’s hard to imagine I once saved babysitting money to buy a 500 minute calling card...

  You may be stationed at Davis-Monthan AFB, Luke AFB, Ft. Huachuca or Yuma, but no matter where you are, there are plenty of reasons to be excited about being in Arizona. Be warned, this is a state that is...
P.C.S. aka “Permanent Change of Station”: Isn’t it funny how something so simple—a single phrase, the arrangement of three seemingly harmless letters—can completely throw you for a loop? When I fell in love with that tall, rowdy and reckless, Texas boy...
