Bird Words

Watching from inside — our cat is a big fan of feathered friends. (So are we)!  Sometimes we can sit quietly in our backyard and watch them come and go!  I have two bird feeders out (and I sprinkle a little bird seed too). One day after school Henry and I were out back and I said, “Oh!  What a…

Kids Yummy Snacks

Hangry – Urban dictionary defines this as being “so hungry that your lack of food causes you to become angry, frustrated or both”.  (combining hungry and angry). This completely describes my 7-year-old.  He wakes up first thing in the AM bright eyed and bushy tailed…but in a certain mood…then after some breakfast — he’s an absolute sweetie. I can detect his…

Now that I just moved into my…

Bring A Cool School Snack!

Moms…Mums… Dads…. Is it your child’s birthday? …or is there’s a special event in the classroom?

Season of Scams?

The Holiday Season inevitably means you will be asked to GIVE.  Giving is good!  I give time (volunteer), help to others, food, money…. Sometimes we can even OD!  (over donate). Living in NYC, I am asked on an almost daily basis to “just give a few pennies” or “give any food you might have – even a half a sandwich in…
