Here is another (not so) Real Man of AP.
“Stranded in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, a man sets in motion an unlikely plan to protect the precious cargo he carries: his infant daughter.”
This short film was a Tropfest Australia 2013 finalist.
Watch the creative and heartfelt story below:
Do you remember the 5-year-old that was suspended from school for having a mohawk? A similar situation is happening to another family in the US.
An Oklahoma father was told repeatedly by school officials of his 7-year-old daughter, Tiana’s charter school, that he would have to change her hair style because dreadlocks are seen as “unacceptable” and “distracting”.
Tiana’s father, Terrance Parker, happens to be a barber and took offense to the accusations of his child not looking presentable for … Keep Reading!!!

I recently read Get Your Child To The Top: Help Your Child Succeed at School and Life by Megan Lisa Jones. The book tackles difficult subjects and modern-day struggles that our children are facing regarding education and the concerns for the rapidly evolving job market.
I really enjoyed how Megan Lisa Jones is coming at this from a mother’s perspective and is interviewing experts in the fields she covering. This allowed for multiple expert perspectives … Keep Reading!!!
One of my favorite movies of all time is Gone with the Wind (the book is even better).
Clark Gable was dreamy enough on his own, but him playing Rhett Butler? *swoon*…
So, I tend to avoid using that comparison.
But I digress…
The movie happened to by on TV tonight and I turned it on during a scene where … Keep Reading!!!

A shout out to the one I love: my husband Warren Jones (Maaguk). Here he is with our second son Rowan age 2. My husband natural does his part of AP everyday. He has been seen roaming the halls at his college campus with our 4 year old on his back and 2 year old on his front with our Ergo’s. He supports me by staying home with our boys while I work full time.

You belong among the wildflowers,
You belong somewhere close to me.
Far away from your trouble and worries
You belong somewhere you feel free.

Probably before, but ever since Time Magazine’s “Mom Enough” cover came out, people have been labeling parenting practices that are similar to or in alignment with “attachment parenting” as extreme. Most of us laughed it off because there was a clear disconnect between what the families’ lives were actually like in these “extreme parenting” scenarios and what society thought went on in their homes. It was (and still is) such a foreign concept to so many Americans, that the general … Keep Reading!!!
Strengthen or Evolve: Debate and Counterpoint Reading:
Aram asked for my phone the other night, and had his first text conversation.
He was so excited to be able to have access to Brian when he was at work…. up until Brian told him it was time to bed, then he wasn’t so keen on texting him anymore! 😉
I never thought texting could be useful learning tool, but reading and spelling action is definitely happening . I am not thinking I should start embracing modern technology for … Keep Reading!!!
We were at an early dinner last night when our kids caught a glimpse of the videos taken today when the bombing happened at the Boston Marathon.
This was the first time the kids really associated themselves with targets of such senseless hate. Our children are aware of tragedies going on in the world, but I think this is the first time it really clicked as a reality for them. It was sad, but also … Keep Reading!!!
