Taming Your Little DIVA

“Look at the little diva,” I heard a stranger say. Others laughed and nodded as the little girl twirled around to the background music playing over the speakers at the restaurant.

18 Reasons Why I Love Snow in the South

Yes, a tragedy is happening in Columbia and much of South Carolina. So many have lost everything — homes, possessions and worst of all, loved ones.

How to Discuss a Natural Disaster with Children

I’ve never experienced a natural disaster until this past weekend. Hurricane Joaquin and other storms brought torrential downpours to the southeastern United States. It rained in Columbia and the surrounding areas for 12 days straight, causing massive floods and devastation to our area. I’ve always felt safe here.

The REAL Reason We Wear Our Babies :: A Tribute to Ariadne

As one of the local babywearing educators, I’ve written about why to wear your baby. I’ve written about how I started babywearing.
