  • Friday 5: 5 Signs Of Second Child Syndrome!
    Tweet Just watching how my children interact with each other is an education for me. Although I wait in anticipation for those moments of affection I hate to admit that they are peppered with far too many squabbles. Siblings are surely something else. With many of my friends having their second babies memories came flooding back to me. Of course having my younger...

  • Preschool And The Sibling Separation
    Tweet Siblings! They fight! Constantly! Over everything! Anyone who has more than child most likely suffers the same fate. No matter how you yell out “Share!”, “Who had it first?”, “Wait your turn!” or “Give it back!” it is practically useless as you have to repeat the same thing a little while later. When you receive...

  • Caring And Sharing Is More About Showing, Than Telling
    Tweet If you are an old hat (or a smarter new hat) at parenting you realize that telling your kid, until you are blue in the face, about sharing that toy just does not sink in. Of course that will not stop us from saying it, or getting frustrated when it is obviously ignored. Yes there are hundreds of classes that will allow your child to “mingle” with...

  • Second Time Around
    Tweet Not one to actually love pregnancy, I did decide to have a second kid because there was no way Jia was going to be an only child. By having two girls it made me nostalgic of my own sisterhood (coming from a set of 5 sisters brings with it a wonderful charm). There are so many things different with the second kid. We forget to count in weeks (and even months) the...
