It’s hard for me to believe but today is the 2-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy’s U.S. landfall.  Two years ago my children and I hunkered down for the night in our dining room.  I brought mattresses, blankets, pillows and lots of stuffed animals downstairs and we all “camped out”.  I tried hard to not scare […]

The importance of imagination – why does it matter?

Ways to help Spark a Child's Imagination

The term “wild imagination” has been used countless amounts of times to describe my son Derek.  No matter how much I hear it I still get a pinch of pride run through me when the words are spoken.  I believe childhood is such an important time to allow children to just be.  When others see […]
