Casey Anthony was acquitted Tuesday on all counts of killing her toddler daughter, Caylee — a verdict that stunned many, with most thinking that she would at least get some sort of lesser murder charge if not 1st degree. Theories are already running rampant as to why the jury found the defense team’s argument that [...]
Last weekend, I attended a friend’s son’s travel team baseball game of which parents are highly involved based on the investment they make to join such leagues — it’s not cheap being a part of a travel team. I’ve heard that some parents make it work by taking on second jobs in order for their [...]
Last night, my husband and I caught the tail end of the Kate Plus 8 show, the one where she brings some of her children to a race track. I’m not sure where they were, I didn’t catch the whole thing. It shows her children squealing in delight as they watch from the center podium [...]

Now, I realize that America currently ranks #25 in most academic studies compared to the rest of the world and that homework is vital [...]
Television in the kids’ bedroom is a controversial issue even in my own home. I’ll admit, I have taken a page out of the lazy parent’s handbook on this issue and happily run with it. I think my husband thinks it’s somewhat unsophisticated and pedestrian to allow our children to have TVs in their room, [...]
