Sail With Me and Classic Harbor Lines

One thing I miss about the East Coast is constantly being able to go into NYC. I miss the skyline and the Hudson River. I miss the piers and the different people. Most of all I miss the Harbor Cruises. I've always feared that the boys will never get to see the side of NYC that I grew up seeing and knowing. Next weekend, May 23rd, all that is changing. We're going to be taking a road trip from Steubenville, OH to Wildwood, NJ, Atlantic City, NJ and then finally on Saturday we're going to be on a Classic Harbor Cruise. The boys will be able to see the skyline that I grew up seeing, they … [Read More...]

Do Freebies Make Kids Feel Entitled?

Recently, I was sitting in the bank drive-up waiting for my transaction to be completed when I heard, "Ping! Ma'am, what color would your child like?" Color? Oh, she means a sucker. Sigh... Artificial dyes turn my children into human tornadoes and I told her we'd pass on the candy. The tube eventually sends my receipt and--low and behold--a sucker.  And the child sees it. Of course, all kinds of fun ensues when I say no. When you're trying to be a "good mom" and teach healthy eating, it's really hard when random people offer your kids something, whether it be a sucker or a free … [Read More...]
