Man, wasn’t I just talking about emergency preparedness on Facebook? And now here we are, hiding inside from Hurricane Sandy. She is expected to completely devastate New Jersey.

New Jersey has been prepping for this storm for the past 2-3 days, and it’s pretty obvious to even the littlest kids that something is up. So, do we explain to them…

P’s preschool teachers, Miss Sarah and Miss Emily, LOVE Halloween.

No-Cook, No-Bath Tuesdays

by RealMomofNJ on October 24, 2012 in Chores, Cleaning, Schedules, Tips

Last Tuesday, the day after posting My Weekends Are Not Weekends, I came home from work exhausted.

Children and the Incomplete Act of Giving

by RealMomofNJ on October 23, 2012 in Holidays, Life Lessons

Last weekend, we went to a birthday party for one of P’s little friends. As is the custom nowadays, the party did not include the opening of presents.

I hate this.

I was shocked the first time I attended a child’s party and they didn’t open their gifts. I thought the parents were kind of jerky because of this, like they…

Cleaning Gear for Kids

by RealMomofNJ on October 19, 2012 in Be Green, Chores, Cleaning, Parent Stuff, Products

I’m a firm believer that it’s important to instill in your kids from very early on that messes don’t clean themselves. If you don’t start teaching your children to clean, you’re going to spend the rest of your life doing it for them. But how do you get them interested in cleaning?

Update on Back-to-Work Series: The Night Before

by RealMomofNJ on October 18, 2012 in Schedules

So I’ve been back to work for about 2 months now. I re-read my August post Back-to-Work Series: The Night Before last night and thought an update was in order.

In the aforementioned post, I listed all of the things that I needed to do to get out the door in the morning, and I color coded it based…
