News from the Nest: Remember the moment, no matter how big, small
A few days before my wedding almost eight years ago, a good friend gave me some life changing advice. It seemed so simple at the time, and it really is quite simple, yet most of us forget to actually do it. She said, "Your wedding day is going to go by so fast; faster than you...

News from the Nest: Never too early to learn about money
A few weeks ago my son signed his first legal document, at the age of 6. Sure he had to ask my husband how to spell our last name as he opened a savings account at our credit union. But overall it was pretty legible. I even made them give me a copy to keep as his first full signature....

News from the Nest: Kindergarten nutrition
I've always been a little strict on what my kids eat as far as food. Vegetables are a part of every meal and my kids usually enjoy eating them, sometimes covered in Ranch, but still. And snacks usually consist of apples, crackers and cheese or yogurt. Now that my son is in kindergarten...

My daughter is the epitome of a toddler right now. The terrible twos were apparently delayed a year with her. She turned three in August and ever since her attitude has been downhill. She has said I am yucky, hit me and told me to go away. Sounds like a treat, doesn't she? Many times...
