This time of year has so many weather metaphors – March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, right before the April showers come blowing in. You might be dealing with nice warm southern temperatures, a rainy Northwest spring, or a snowstorm in the Rockies.

It’s hard to be a parent during the winter. By this point in the season, most of the methods you use to entertain your kids (and get them out of your hair for a minute) are starting to get stale – it’s too wet or cold to go outside, they’ve watched all their movies several times over, and they’ve just emptied the toy bins again. Read on for some fresh ideas to help combat your kids’ cabin fever.

In the end, though, as Charlie Brown found out, it’s not the lights and music that makes the holiday.

It doesn’t take much for a school routine to turn into a school rut. The march from class to class to class can make your kids long for something new and exciting. Thank goodness for recess, and thank goodness for lunch time.

To say kids need a lot of stuff would be a major understatement. Before you can bring them home from the hospital you need a car seat, crib, diapers, diaper bag, clothes, bottles, stroller…the list goes on. But that’s just the beginning.

Let’s face it – your kids use technology. And unlike the desk-bound, dial-up technology of our youth, they take their mobile devices everywhere and anywhere to stay connected to the online aspect of their social lives.
