Five Easy Ways to Be a Secret Santa This Holiday Season

santa-clip-art-3.gif Receiving and giving gifts around the holidays to friends and family is insanely routine. It's a pleasure for many, and a dreaded chore for others. For me, its definitely the latter. But think about how different you feel when you get a gift from someone totally unexpected during the most random time of year. I know that I am more likely to remember when a friend bought me lunch for $20 in April than when I get a new $100 sweater from someone in December. If you are like me, there is fun in finding ways to make memorable moments for people even if you don't know them. Since the holiday season is supposed to be about fun and giving, I have identified a few ways that you can accomplish both by being a Secret Santa to the public without breaking the bank. ...

Children's App Review: There's a New Fish in Town: Henry the Little Fish

splash.jpg I used to love reading to my kids when they were little. They won't let me do it anymore since one will be getting ready to drive soon and the other will be getting Bar Mitzvahed. While there was never a short supply of books to choose from to read, it's incredible how many many times we would go back to reading one or two books over an over because of how much the kids loved the story, the pictures and in many cases, the interactive pop up features. Admittedly, I am a traditionalist and prefer hard copy books over reading on a phone or other gadgets. But for the tech embracing families out there with little kids, I have come across a story book app that I know my kids would have really enjoyed as toddlers. Its called Henry The Little Fish by Pipit Press and it's available for download on the iPhone or iPad for only $2.99. ... Read more

When Your Daughter Turns 15, It's Time to Get Sentimental

1928720_1104499691840_2966_n.jpg I don't know what it is about being 15 years old but for me, that was the most pivotal year of my life. It was the year I was on top of the world at high school and it was the time my friends and I did some really stupid things and thankfully, lived to tell about it.... Read more

Family Chores Made Easier with the OurHome App

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 5.38.38 PM.png Whose turn is it to walk the dog? That seems to be the usual refrain in our house over the last 12 months since we adopted our beloved Santana. I know our two cats, Jasper and Hazel couldn't care less about the dog, how many times she gets walked or if she ever decides to make a break for it out of the house. They give me that disdainful look that says, "just make sure someone cleans up our damn litter box and have our food waiting for us at 6:30 am sharp!". My son's bearded dragon, Guapo doesn't seem to share that same contempt for Santana, as his daily activities have been relatively unaffected by her adoption. Get fed mealworms, scoff down a little lettuce, and bask under the heat lamp for the day. Despite being low maintenance, Guapo is a constant reminder to me every time I walk into son's room about how many things in our house, big or small, that require daily attention by our family....
