THE MOM STOP: Raising children often requires learning to let go

As I ran alongside my daughter, helping her balance on her bike without training wheels, she squealed. The streamers on the handlebars rustled as she nervously steered, the front wheel shaking back and forth as she attempted to balance.

“I can do it!” my daughter proclaimed.

I knew she could, it was just a matter of me letting her.…

Mark your calendar for local spring events leading up to Easter!

Around this time of year my kids yearn to be outside. Winter seemed to last longer than normal, and we’ve had seemingly endless days of rain recently, but my family is ready, and spring is finally here.

Luckily, between now and Easter a number of family friendly Easter egg hunts, fundraisers and free events will be held in the area. Check out our list, get involved — and get…

MOM STOP: Time is worth more than any toy from Santa

With the Thanksgiving holiday wrapping up this weekend and the Christmas season gearing up in full swing, it’s easy to get consumed in the focus on material things.

When I was growing up, piling through the thick stack of newspaper ads with my mom while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade was part of our family Thanksgiving tradition. I loved climbing in bed with her while the TV was on, circling the great deals we would get up for…

MOM STOP: Kid are never too safe when it comes to water

As my 2-year-old son jumped off the diving board at swim class recently, I marveled at how his tiny feet kicked fervently from the depths below, how his eyes, closed tight, popped open as his head emerged from the water and he took a deep breath of air.

My children, probably like a lot of kids, are fearless when it comes to water. As a parent of preschoolers, that terrifies…

MOM STOP: Routine is key when it comes to bedtime

It usually starts with a late night knock on the door.

My 2-year-old boy, in his footie pajamas and tousled blonde hair, peeks at me with his eyes adjusting to the hall light.

“I go potty,” he says.

We let him try, of course, but unfortunately it’s become a new tactic in a long list of…

MOM STOP: Keep kids warm this winter

Growing up as a kid in north Alabama, if there was below-freezing weather, it usually meant snow.

At least once a year, my sister and I could count on a couple of days of snow. School would be canceled, the grocery stores ransacked of milk and bread — standard Alabama snow day. We’d spend hours sledding down the hill at the…

THE MOM STOP: Parents must expect the unexpected

I have a nightly routine, something that probably a lot of parents do: About an hour after I put my children to sleep, I check on them.

I tuck them in, kiss them on the head. Sometimes I look at them in the glimmer of our hallway light, still amazed that I’m their mom. Other times, I sigh a sigh of relief that my little terrors…
