Do you remember the days before children? When Valentine’s Day meant your partner spoiled you with roses and fine jewelry? Maybe they showered you with attention and took you out to the fanciest restaurant in town. Date nights involved wine, romance, and stays at beautiful hotels. Spontaneity was half of the fun. Saturday nights and […]

I met a neighbor one day while out for a walk. She was walking her dog, I was pushing my son in his stroller. We made polite small talk and, towards the end of our conversation, she made a negative comment about an older, Indian woman who lives nearby. My neighbor and I are both […]
I was remarking to friends recently how interesting it is to watch my children’s innate personalities manifest after birth. When it comes to nature vs. nurture, I’m always quick to rattle off a myriad of reasons in support of the nurture side of things. I suppose it’s some way for me to feel in control […]
Dear Little Man, “Make it work” is the mantra of many working moms. Well, I didn’t today. I woke up late because the thought of 10 more minutes of precious sleep was just too good to pass up. In fact, it was too good to pass up three times. I missed my morning gym time […]
When I am out with my youngest, who is 3, Moms will say things to me things like, “Enjoy it now; it goes by so fast!” What they don’t know is that I have a 19-year old and a 16-year old and, oh, I know, how quickly time goes by as a parent. I’m pretty […]
The Marietta Museum of History announces tours for the smallest of visitors. Based on programs by the Smithsonian Institute’s Early Enrichment Center, tours will be offered to toddlers from age 3 to 5 and their parents. Different topics will be offered on the second Wednesday of every month at 10:30 a.m. and the cost is $5 per family (one adult and up to three children), additional adults and children are $5 each.
The purpose of the tours is to introduce toddlers to history through very basic concepts like shapes, sounds, games, tools and jobs. Museum Mascots Murray and Etta are whimsical cartoon mice that will help convey the themes for the tours and provide a little fun. The tours will offer a variety of activities including story time and crafts.
We require that you reserve a spot for your toddler by calling our office Monday-Friday from 10-4 at 770-794-5710. Reserving a spot will allow the staff to have enough items for the crafts. Thank you.
It took my sweet boy, in spite of an advanced and early vocabulary, 18 months to finally say, “Mama!” Those two sweet, simple syllables are transformative, making a minute in which I am being yelled at by a baby, covered in poo, and running late into a memory I don’t want to let go of. But, […]
It’s been awhile. Life has a way of coming at you fast, ya know? Just when you seem to get your head above the water of whatever wave you’re riding, the tide seems to pull you under and you just can’t get back to the surface. And that’s what life did to me lately…like a […]
Being a Mom is an exhilarating roller-coaster of emotions for the next, well, forever. Being the Mom of a toddler is a special time in which you get to watch your little one turn into an actual person while they explore the world around them. As Moms of toddlers know, they are these quirky, germy […]
I’ll never forget the day it happened. My “mom fear” had come true. If we’re honest with ourselves, we all have at least one fear in raising our small children. Maybe you have more than one. Mine has always been choking. I’m terrified that my children are going to choke to death one day. Call […]
