A digital camera for the littlest shutterbugs

Holiday time is of course a photographer's paradise for capturing family memories. I encourage the kids in our family to take pictures, which provides a great "kid's eye view" into own traditions and activities--and the fact that my own favorites aren't necessarily my...

The cat in the app

The cat in the app

For the past few months, my kids have been obsessed with the Talking Tom Cat app that has them yelling, singing and -- yes -- screaming at a cat who then repeats everything back to them in his own weird voice. Harmless fun but no redeeming educational value. Or so I...

Cupcake making without cavity making

Cupcake making without cavity making

To say my girls are obsessed with the range of cake, cupcake, Jell-O mold, and cookie making/decorating iPhone apps out there is an understatement. It's like the EZ-Bake Ovens of the smartphone era: So fun for kids, it doesn't even matter whether they eat the results...

It’s a big TeuxDeux

Between after-school activities, weekend soccer games, getting Caleb a birthday present for his party on Saturday, flu shot appointments, sending in the permission slip for the field trip, and, uh, you get the gist, it's a wonder I don't leave my house looking like...

Here’s how to get to inbox zero. You can do it!

I have more problems managing my inbox flow than you can imagine. Seriously, you don't want to know how old some of the emails in my inbox are. (Okay, 4 years. Just in Gmail. My other account goes back to 2002.) So after much urging by kindred spirits on Twitter, and...

You’ve got me feeling emoticons

So I know I can't be the only one who's sent a snarky email or left a cheeky Facebook comment and ended it with a smiley emoticon. I guess it's sort of like starting a sentence with "no offense but... only nicer, right? Related: The new 2019 emojis! More inclusive,...
