I'm in love with our Netflix replacement: our county library.
If your kids are as attracted to soft, fuzzy things as mine were at that age (and still are), you will love this easy garden project...perfect for a summer afternoon.
Michelle's hack illustrates how simple home tweaks can make a big difference to your kid's independence.
At Etsy: Mother's Day Card: Shark Attack, by Emily-Bell From Mother's Day fail? Lessons learned -- and honest advice for avoiding disappointment next year: "I hate Mother's Day." This, from a friend I ran into on the walk home from school. I appreciated her candor but couldn't help feeling sad....
I appreciate this hack from Melissa -- simply, how her family uses the parental controls built into her computer's operating system to manage her kids' computer use. It's easy to overlook the tools we already have right at our fingertips.
Ahhhhhhh. That's the sound of me coming down from a fab time at the Mom 2.0 Summit in Southern California AND getting my working computer back from the Apple Geniuses. Feels like a new beginning all around, you know? Mom2 was the first time I saw Christine in person since...
Mother's Day is almost here, and I'd like to give you a present. I know you're not my mother, but you are the reason I do what I do here every day and I am so grateful for that. I have a beautiful, handmade GENET scarf -- a collaboration between...
Delicious, satisfying, easy, beautiful, fancy enough for company. Even your Paleo and slow carb friends will appreciate this.
Hard boiled eggs are my daughter's favorite new snack, and I couldn't be more thrilled. High protein, all natural, simple. But the classic boil-in-a-pot method isn't quick as I might like. Turns out you can steam eggs on the stovetop resulting in perfect hard boiled eggs in a fraction of...
Lynne passed along a pointer to "Mix It Up," a blog full of homemade cooking mixes -- recipes that are easy to put together with (mostly) natural ingredients.
Can there ever be enough potty training tips? I don't think so, especially because the process goes so differently for different kids. Erin shared this eminently practical hack for handling the, uh, fallout.
Tomorrow I head to Southern California for the Mom 2.0 Summit, a conference I've been looking forward to since I attended two years ago. Christine and I are speaking, and our talk touches on our roles as both co-authors of Minimalist Parenting and professional bloggers at Boston Mamas and Parent...
Part 1 of the series "Manage Your Money Just Enough": When it comes to a simple filing system, having a system in place -- any system -- lets you handle paper and information as soon as it comes in.
Time to get back in balance. At least, that's what my computer's telling me. Also: a feature in The Week!
Photo credit: FreeDigitalPhotos.net A little while ago I put out a hack request for your simple money management tips. Your response has been so great that it's taking me a while to organize and post your tips! I'm taking extra time with this series because I know that organizing finances,...
Shannon's solution is much smarter than mine, which is to leave crazy straws sitting in the dish drainer for a week, and then throw them away because they smell musty.
From my new post at Babble: "Do less, enjoy more." There’s a symmetry to that line…a balance that’s so tantalizing in its simplicity. Unfortunately, it brings to mind another line: "Easier said than done..."
In case you missed the party...
I do book-related highlight roundups here on the weekend.
Let's talk about money systems. I want to hear about your just-enough-not-too-much approaches to finances.
