This week’s question came from Tara B. She asked our writers,
“What is your guilty pleasure after a tough day of mommyhood?”
Here’s what some of our moms had to say…
Kirsten Jessiman of Canada writes:
“Once the kids are in bed and all of my nightly tasks are done, I like to grab a glass of wine and indulge in a bit of Facebook time wasting.”
Veronica Samuels of New Jersey, USA writes:
“A cup of tea, something naughty to eat (such as ice cream) and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on T.V. (The show is a comical slant on the U.S. news and politics.) Ahhhh, adult time!!!” (more…)
This week we asked our writers,
What book did you last read? Or, what is your favorite book?
Here’s what they had to say!
Karyn Van Der Zwet of New Zealand states:
“The latest book I’ve read is ‘The Book of Fairy Princes’ by Isabel Wyatt, yes it is a children’s book, and I really like it because it is like an old-fashioned fairy tale book, but the boys are the focus not the girls. As a Mum to three boys – this is important in our house.” (more…)
This week we asked our World Moms Blog writers…
“Fess up, moms! Any white lies you want to admit to telling your children?”
The ladies, as usual, did not hold back…
Kirsten Jessiman of Toronto, Canada writes:
“My top three:
– If you keep pouting and the wind changes, your face will stay that way.
– The monsters went away because I punched them in the nose.
– Yes, I also have to go to my room when I say a bad word.” (more…)
In America we follow the Gregorian calendar. The last day in the month of December we celebrate the beginning of a new year at the stroke of midnight. Many Americans participate in the popular New Years custom of making a commitment to a personal goal or reforming a habit. We refer it as a “New Year’s Resolution.”
I made a few resolutions last year and ended up for the most part sticking with them. Nothing too outrageous, mind you. One of my resolutions was to expose my two young daughters to yoga.
I followed through with my commitment by reading up on books on yoga for children. We bought the girls each their own purple yoga mats. My style of teaching them was based on a yoga book and my prior experience with yoga. (more…)
We start off the week in New Jersey, USA with Kally Mocho, who talks about important music moments in her life and how she’s trying to recreate them with her children. Be sure to check out her article on Monday, “Keep It Rockin’!”
Tuesday, we fly north of the border to Toronto, Canada for Kirsten Jessiman’s, “An Eighth of an Inch”. In a place where she found herself dealing with the initial diagnosis of her son’s autism, she found optimism. A very inspiring read!
Wednesday, we travel to the west coast USA to meet up with the hip A. Roselyn in San Francisco! And Thursday ,we take the red-eye out east to Cape Cod, Massachusetts to check in with Courtney Cappallo, our home-schooling mom!
World Moms Blog writers admit to the little white lies they’ve told their children on Friday. You won’t want to miss that one!
See you again on the blog for another fun week!

"Don't try this at home!"
This week Allison Charleston of New York, USA asks,
“Where does your little one sleep? Do you co-sleep?
When did you transition your child to their own crib or bed?”
Here’s how our World Moms Blog writers answered… (more…)
