Friday Question: What’s Your Guilty Pleasure After “One of Those” Days?

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…)

Friday Question: Last Book Read? Favorite Book?

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…)

MASSACHUSETTS, USA: New Year’s Resolutions

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…)
