In case you don’t have Google Alerts set up to let you know every time I write anything anywhere (hey, can you actually do that?), I wanted to share a couple things I wrote for other sites recently. I hope you enjoy them…
Another Trip Down Memory Highway
I’ve driven California Interstate 5 so many times, I can’t even begin to count. But for some reason, when we drove it at Christmas time, I was feeling nostalgic. Who knew the open road could bring back so many memories? Read this and more from small and mighty bloggers at Project: Underblog. (And, hey, if you’re a blogger/writer yourself, please join us.

From Chaos to Access
As a Shine Parenting Guru (ok, take a minute to giggle…), I was asked to write about my parenting resolutions. And while not screaming so much I lose my voice is among them, I’m pretty sure I wasn’t ready to share that to an audience of millions. (Let’s just keep that our little secret.) So instead I focused on how I plan to help empower my kids to do more of the things they would actually love to do for themselves. I can just see us all on the cover of Happy Family Magazine when the snacks are in a bottom drawer. Can’t you?
Is there a way to comment on the Shine one? I couldn’t help but laugh at keeping the snacks in a bottom drawer. Our nickname for Luke is “Snacks”. Kinda like Refrigerator Perry, only he’s 4. We would be in big trouble if we allowed better access for him!! BIG trouble! :).

Christina, if you have a Yahoo! account and are logged in, you should be able to comment. You might be able to use FB to log in too these days.
I hear you. The snack drawer would have to have rules associated with it which is one of the main reasons it hasn’t happened. But I guess it’s on me to divide up snacks and be sure they’re healthy foods in appropriate portions. Hmm, maybe that wasn’t such a good idea after all…
I think its a great idea! Unfortunately, my kids take after me and can’t control their cravings. 😉 Maybe once “Snacks” is school-age, it won’t be such an issue. He really is living up to that saying that boys eat you out of house and home!
