ITA#10: How To Make Your Kids Forget You’re Mean

By May 22, 2013Podcast

ita-podcastThis episode is all about creating memorable moments. Good ones. We all have rough days, but there are simple things we can do to tip the scales towards great memories with our kids.

I’m really excited about podcasting more. Especially with summer coming, we moms have less time to sit and read. We’ll be spending a lot of time watching kids at the park, the pool and on playdates. Subscribe to the ITA podcast and stay encouraged and challenged all summer long…all while keeping an eye on and playing with your kids!

Cool Stuff Mentioned This Episode

1. Parenting a Boy, Not a Herd – great post from Shaun Groves

2. Kidventures – the idea book I mentioned in this episode. It’s a fantastic resource for summer fun.

3. Read for the Heart – a fabulous “book of books” that lists excellent literature by age. Perfect for family story nights.

4. Sally Clarkson’s Books – my favorite motherhood author and a dear friend, she lives what she writes and is a wonderful inspiration.

5. My “Office” – I mention my closet/office so I thought I’d include a picture.

    I took my sister and her friend on a PJ run whenthey were having a sleepover… I’m not sure I “did it right” but they loved it, so I think it was successful… 🙂

    I live in Misawa, Japan and I coordinate the MOPS program here. There are no ice cream joints that stay open later than 6pm, so we are organizing our own pajama run at the chapel. Really looking forward to it. My husband and I did a flash mob pajama run some weeks ago with friends and neighbors at our house as a trial run and it was a huge success. Those who thought they would leave early stayed the longest. Love building community overseas! Thanks for your great ideas!
