Eye to Eye Means Heart to Heart

    He’s no longer just crying – he’s on the ground, screaming at the top of his lungs, tears rushing down his cheeks and his face red. But he’s clearly not hurt. Or is he? Next to him, a little friend is sitting on a toy motorcycle, holding a doll, and just stoically looking at him. Naturally, you go…

Book Review: Visiting Feelings (Rubenstein/Hehenberger); Peaceful Piggy Meditation (Kerry Lee MacLean)

Before I had children, I went through many phases of character development, spirituality, and mindfulness. Around the time I was married, I felt that I had a decent grasp on my life and anticipated that once we had children, I would be able to quickly put all my ‘lessons learned’ to proper use. …Well, let’s just say it took me…

Children’s Book Review: The Man with the Violin (Stinson/Petricic) & Happy Dreamer (Reynolds)

These book reviews are not affiliated with nor sponsored by any third party. I just felt like sharing 🙂 When was the last time you were reminded to “stop and smell the roses”, to “be present”, “become one with the moment”… or some variation of the same idea? We may react differently to these ideas, depending on our current circumstances,…

Just a Day at the Park: When Homeschooling Happens Naturally

  After breakfast and literally seconds before they started asking for TV (believe me I know when that’s about to happen), I was all packed and suggested we go to the park. We had nothing else planned that day so I was ok with turning my poor car into a sandbox after our visit and bringing home two dirty tired…

Home for School and School at Home

Learning At Home Ever since I have been given some guidance from our homeschool Kindergarten school-teacher, it has been very pleasant to have some form of direction to our activities. I still take the girls on plenty of field trips, and they naturally accompany me on all of my errand-runs, but I think I am more focused on my conversations…

Another New Me: Introduction to My Ketogenic Journey

Skepticism. Research. Decision-making. Challenges. Recipes. Maintenance. Sharing. Subscribe to my Blog. I will go through each step of My Ketogenic Journey in detail with you.  “I don’t believe in the concept of time and I don’t believe in conclusions.”  That’s what I said to my then-boyfriend, just a few months into dating each other.

The Perfection of Motherhood Lies in its Imperfections

So I’ve been kind of MIA from Mommywhispers.com for the past few months, for different reasons, but mainly because I was doing some soul-searching about where I want to take this blog.  You see, as a mother, my days are filled with everything from energetic mornings, my kids fighting over wet paper-towel trails on the ground, figuring out what to do…

My Children’s Future Depends on My Choice of Words Today!

How many articles have you read about the impact of our words on those around us?  I think most of us were taught young to always “mind what you say”, and to be considerate about another person’s feelings. Yet, in today’s era of unforgiving bullies as young as preschool children and as sophisticated as politicians, the havoc wreaked by poorly chosen words is…

Watch what you eat before you start feeding the little ones

Nutrition is one of my favorite topics to research, learn about and apply at home.  As a young child when I was given fruits, I would imagine that I was on an exotic and colorful island. I would imagine that the fruit in my hand was all that I had to eat, and that I was enjoying it to the…
