Children's App Review: There's a New Fish in Town: Henry the Little Fish

splash.jpg I used to love reading to my kids when they were little. They won't let me do it anymore since one will be getting ready to drive soon and the other will be getting Bar Mitzvahed. While there was never a short supply of books to choose from to read, it's incredible how many many times we would go back to reading one or two books over an over because of how much the kids loved the story, the pictures and in many cases, the interactive pop up features. Admittedly, I am a traditionalist and prefer hard copy books over reading on a phone or other gadgets. But for the tech embracing families out there with little kids, I have come across a story book app that I know my kids would have really enjoyed as toddlers. Its called Henry The Little Fish by Pipit Press and it's available for download on the iPhone or iPad for only $2.99. ... Read more

These buttery, mustardy roasted ones? Delicious!! Try to find cute, little ones for this recipe if you can. Enjoy! ... Read more

10 Guiding "Manhood" Principles

IMG_2128.JPG It's just a few months away now until our son Dylan gets Bar Mitzvahed. My wife and I are veterans of the process, having proudly seen our daughter Rebecca do a masterful job for her Bat Mitzvah back in May 2012. Similar to what our Rabbi asked Rebecca during the introductory Bat Mitzvah preparation consultation for the family, the same question was again posed to our son. "What does it mean to you to become a Bar Mitzvah?" To no surprise, the way most 12 year old Jewish boys respond , Dylan said it is the day that "I become a man." Oy Vey.... Read more

Family Chores Made Easier with the OurHome App

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 5.38.38 PM.png Whose turn is it to walk the dog? That seems to be the usual refrain in our house over the last 12 months since we adopted our beloved Santana. I know our two cats, Jasper and Hazel couldn't care less about the dog, how many times she gets walked or if she ever decides to make a break for it out of the house. They give me that disdainful look that says, "just make sure someone cleans up our damn litter box and have our food waiting for us at 6:30 am sharp!". My son's bearded dragon, Guapo doesn't seem to share that same contempt for Santana, as his daily activities have been relatively unaffected by her adoption. Get fed mealworms, scoff down a little lettuce, and bask under the heat lamp for the day. Despite being low maintenance, Guapo is a constant reminder to me every time I walk into son's room about how many things in our house, big or small, that require daily attention by our family....

Don't just be a Mom. Be a Fit Mom!

shadow-unhappy-woman-on-scale-plus-size-nc.jpg Over the past year, I've had a few health setbacks that have caused me to put on weight at an unbelievable pace. Back in the spring, I threw out my knee and spent an entire week on the couch and then the next few months slowly making my way back to the gym. In fact, after that incident, I gave up Jazzercise since the activity was really causing my knee to ache. Then, last month, I woke up in excruciating pain and discovered I had two wisdom teet that were infected, impacted and had to be removed. There I was, back again on the couch and despite the fact that I could have lost weight on a liquid diet, I still managed to find ways to satisfy my sweet tooth. And so, as we get ready to start a new year, I'm faced with having to lose at least 15 pounds so I can fit back into my skinny jeans.... Read more
