Being Savvy: Activities, things to do with your preschoolers, toddlers and kids in Washington DC, DC
As the city editor of Being Savvy Washington DC, it is way too easy for me to get caught up in all the things there are to do in the area. As much as I want to do it all, sometimes the best days are the ones where there is no plan and nothing on our daily agenda. Days that lack scheduled playdates, errands to run, and appointments are rare and appreciated treat and the most likely time that the ... Read more >

We read a lot around here. In fact, our collection of books spans six rooms in our house and is slightly embarrassing, if you want to know the truth. The children, of course, contribute their fair share to the piles of bound paper lying around. One of my favorite parts about reading to my kids is sharing books that I remember my parents reading to me. Here are a few of my favorites that I ... Read more >

I don't know about you, but I have a heck of a time keeping a three year old and a nine month old entertained long enough to get dinner on the table every night. At least I did, until I turned my spice rack over to the kids. Now, my spice rack is really a low shelf in a cabinet, so when I need to get dinner started I just open up the door and point the kids in that direction. The baby ... Read more >

In just 3 more days, my preschooler will turn 5. While it has been amazing to watch her grow and change over the past few years, her turning 5 is monumental. She‚??s no longer the toddler that her brother is or the child she was when she first entered preschool. She‚??s a big girl who knows the ropes, can call the shots, but sometimes hangs back and still needs Mom and Dad to comfort her. What ... Read more >

The (sick) baby woke up at 4:00 yesterday morning, and I am working with a massive sleep debt as it is, so I decided to take the opportunity to drink my first (half) cup of coffee in over five years. Coffee is good. In honor of my return to the loving embrace of caffeine, here are some good coffee shops to hit with the kids in Northern Virginia. Borders - most of these ... Read more >
