My Baby Ballerina Before my daughter could walk, she could dance.  When she heard a song playing, she was moving her cute chubby baby arms to the beat.  Once she learned to walk, there was no stopping her from moving and grooving with her talented little legs.  When my baby girl turned three years old, I enrolled her in her first ballet class and she did absolutely amazing!  She listened to her instructor very well, followed directions great, and I feel she was one of the...

Visiting theme parks with children is so much fun! I’ll never forget my ADHDer’s smiling face when she first rode on Dumbo at Disneyland or when she got picked to talk to Crush at Disney’s California Adventure. It was truly magical! As a parent to two young girls, one with ADHD, I also know that waiting in lines at the Disneyland Resort and other amusement parks can be downright stressful for the entire family. Waiting in long lines can feel like a lifetime...

I always make sure I make a big deal about her wonderful handwriting, the unique colors she chose to use to color a picture, and I compliment her on the effort she put...

To say that I am a huge Disney buff is an understatement.  I often call my two daughters “princesses” and I buy them all the Disney princess toys and clothes they ask for (and don’t ask for), because 1.) they are great kids, 2.) I love spoiling them, and 3.) I’m a sucker for anything Disney.  I’ve noticed that on a lot of princess merchandise, the words “Daddy’s Little Princess” are very common.  Unless it is custom made, you will hardly ever find anything that says “Mommy’s...
