  What do you love to do with your children? How old are they? And what is your greatest wish for them? I love to put on great dance music and dance with them.  My husband and I are big music lovers and the kids have definitely inherited that trait.  I have a 6 year-old girl, a 4 year-old boy and a 2 year-old boy.  I hope that one day they have kids and a family like...

Denny woke up with a start.  Ever since he had moved into a real bed, sleeping through the night had been difficult.  During the day, Denny sometimes became tearful out of the blue.  His parents, Anna and Brian, couldn’t figure out what was upsetting him. “I wish I knew what sometimes comes over Denny to make him feel so sad,” Anna had said to Brian the night before.  “I wonder if he misses his old room...

What do you love to do with your children? How old are they? And what is your greatest wish for them?  My children are 4 and 3. Being a working mom, I make dinners for the beginning of the week on Sunday afternoons to make the week easier. So every Sunday, I teach my kids how to cook and they love it. They are getting pretty good at making sauce and meatballs! When and where are you...

Dana Henry was walking quickly down the hall of her four year old daughter’s nursery school.  She had made a spur of the moment appointment at her hair salon, to have Danni’s hair cut in a classic bob, just like her own.  As she peered through the door, she could see her daughter drawing at a table with her friends.  Dana knocked and Miss Giancola waved her to come on in.  She said smiling, “Welcome....

At lunchtime on a beautiful warm day, Julia left the art gallery where she worked and made her way to the park.  Julia had found out a few weeks ago that she was expecting a baby and she felt compelled to be near mothers and their children. Sitting on a green bench in the early afternoon sun, she took out the chicken salad sandwich she had made that morning.  Nearby, two young boys were drawing in...

Mrs. Connelly had been teaching in the same sunny room for years.  She loved her four-year-olds and their parents.  Each year brought her a new mix of angelic and rambunctious children. The classroom had an open, full feeling, with lots of choices for play.  Mrs. Connelly had an instinct for what children loved to do.  Often she brought in small items she thought they would enjoy.  Sometimes they were toys her grown son had played with...

My son and I love to go to nearby Meadow Farm and visit the animals.  He is three years old and loves to go “check on our friends”, as we say.  We will go over and see the sheep, chickens, cows, and pigs when the weather is not so great, to “make sure that they’re...

Four year old Barney really knew how to wear his mother out.  He never listened.  At the park she frequently had to resort to bribes to lure Barney away from the riding toys or the sand box.  Her promises of treats in the car nearly always worked but his demands kept escalating. One day as she was buckling Barney into his car seat, Mary realized her last bag of gummy worms had been used to pry...

  What do you love to do with your children? How old are they? And what is your greatest wish for them? I love being with my children- all of them.  My eldest are boys-17, 16 and 16 and my youngest is a girl, 7.  Sadly my three teenage boys are not that interested in being with me at this point in their life so I try to meet them on their page.  I go to their games,...

I am a proud Mom of two amazing little boys, Frankie (age 5) and Marcus (age 4), who are growing up faster than I ever imagined possible.  I love to do everything with them, including my turn at “meltdowns”, but specifically, I like to play what games and activities they are interested in.  Currently, it...

It was a lovely, cool Saturday in October.  Two-year-old Cubby was in his crib, sleeping soundly.  Fern, his four-year-old sister, decided she was going to get him up and show him what school is.  She lowered the side of the crib and picked up her sleeping brother.  Putting him in a big chair, she told him, “This is what you do at school.”  She pointed to paper and colored pencils that she had put out...

Jane woke up to the sound of her mother’s voice on the phone.  Elizabeth’s voice was different, trembly.  She couldn’t really hear what her mother was actually saying.  Jane sat up, to listen better. “I know Daddy.  Yes, I will bring the children with me.  They will want to see you both.” Jane got out of bed, quietly so as not to wake her brother Dylan, who slept in another bed in the same room.  In semi...
