Menu Plan for November 2-12

I’ve been doing some thinking about my menu planning.  While I do love the monthly planning concept, I found that I usually didn’t make at least one meal from the plan per week.  That resulted in a lot of leftover ingredients.  Also, I didn’t feel like I was utilizing the ingredients I have on hand… Continue reading Menu Plan for November 2-12

Air Travel with Small, Nervous Children

Last night we returned from a nearly two-week visit to my in-laws.  I love spending the holidays with family.  However, since we live in different cities, we first have to get there, and that usually means a trip to the airport.

Day To Disconnect Review

Last Sunday, Tzom Gedalia (October 2nd), I participated in the Day To Disconnect, a movement to encourage people to put down their tech and connect with people the old-fashioned way, face-to-face. I decided to share my experience with a vlog!  The sound quality is not as great as I would like; apologies for that.  I’d… Continue reading Day To Disconnect Review

Torah Tuesdays: Rosh HaShanah davening with small children afoot

I recently started davening  from a siddur again after a long stretch of it not being feasible.  Though I definitely have had finer moments with my concentration level, I’m happy to at least do what I can. Weekday Shemoneh Esrei?  No problemo.  Thank G-d, my kids are able to occupy themselves while I daven.  … Continue reading Torah Tuesdays: Rosh HaShanah davening with small children afoot

When Disconnecting means Reconnecting

You may remember my mini-series on using social media in a positive way.  I had read a post by Ima 2 Seven where she discussed a thought-provoking article about a social media mommy making the decision to cut the internet out of her home.  The whole online discussion prompted me to think about my relationship… Continue reading When Disconnecting means Reconnecting
