Kali Davies-Anderson: Summer carries warm memories — so why are today’s kids cool to it?
Today is July 23 and summer is in full swing. Summertime means very little to most adults, aside from those in the teaching profession, whom the rest of the world’s working class secretly hate.
Kali Davies-Anderson: Baby’s baptism wasn’t SUPPOSED to be funny, but ...
My daughter Ivy turned 3 months old on July 14. She was baptized on the same day. I experience some level of anxiety each and every time that I have to stand in front of the church.
Kali Davies-Anderson: It was a relaxing Fourth of July and then ... BOOM!
There are many holidays that children enhance. For example, I have found that Christmas has a whole new and fresh kind of innocent excitement now that I have children, and Halloween has certainly gotten a makeover in my household since my daughters were born.
Kali Davies-Anderson: Ready or not, Violet, it’s potty time!
When I was about seven months pregnant with my second daughter (and Violet was about 18 months old) I made an attempt to begin potty training. I know that a lot of people will say that this is too young, but according to my mother I was 15 months old when I kicked my diaper habit, so it is not impossible.
Kali Davies-Anderson: Summer ain't what it used to be
I am not complaining, but it has been HOT these past few days in New Castle, PA. Not just warm or kind of hot, it has been SCORCHING HOT. I am still unsure as to how the weather went from low 60’s to 90’s overnight, but that seems to be how we roll here in Western, PA. Hot summer days will always remind me of my childhood. Throughout the entire school year, I day-dreamed about summer vacation. We never really took an actual vacation, but that did not matter to me. I looked forward to sleeping in, swimming, playing kickball in the field behind my house and getting ice cream before bed. Those were simpler times.
Kali Davies-Anderson: Ten things I’ve learned from my father
By the time you read this, Father’s Day 2013 will have come and gone. However, I would still like to take the time to wish all of you dads out there a happy Father’s Day, with special wishes going out to my own father, the infamous Bob “Booby” Davies and my husband and father to my children, the not quite as infamous Erik “Crow” Anderson.
Kali Davies-Anderson: If I remember correctly ... aw, nevermind, I don’t.
I used to think I was good with remembering faces. In fact, I would see a person one time in the checkout of a grocery store and the next time I would see them I could recall the contents of their shopping cart. However, somewhere along the line this gift of facial recognition somehow dwindled
Kali Davies-Anderson: Some thoughts on what NOT to wear after giving birth
This week, someone I had never met before invited me to some kind of body wrapping party. Now, I have no idea what this entails, but it sounded like at such events, guests wrap themselves up tightly with some kind of magical material and somehow excess flab disappears.
Kali Davies-Anderson: Be careful what you wish for — I got it good!
When I became pregnant with my first child, I imagined myself as a stay-at-home mom, playing with blocks and coloring with my daughter, cooking nice meals for our family and keeping a pristine house.
Kali Davies-Anderson: I’m now a year older — and a lot wiser
On May 7, I turned 28 years old. I understand this is still considered “young,” but I feel as though I have lived many lives in my 28 years. And in those many “lives” I have learned vast and various lessons.
