A young girl with shoulder length brown hair and bangs wears a long pink dress. She is standing in front of some wisteria. She is the right age for school age classes at the Little Gym in Chesapeake.

As parents, we are always on the lookout for fun activities for our kids. However, sports can often be a huge time commitment and are just too competitive for some children. A great option for those high energy kiddos can be tumbling or non-competition gymnastics classes. You can find just that at The Little Gym […]

A family of four snuggle close. The oldest girl, wearing a pink dress, is giving her parents a big hug. The toddler, also in a pink dress, reaches for daddy. Mom is in a floral dress and smiling wide. Mom gets her hair cut at Muse Salon in Chesapeake.

Those of us who have curly hair know the struggle of finding a good salon. Our hair isn’t like that of our straight haired friends. It doesn’t like to be cut wet, it goes every which way, it turns into a triangle with the wrong kind of layers, so on and so forth. Sometimes I’m […]

A family wearing blue and khaki wraps their arms around each other. They stand on the beach, which is a fun kids activity in Hampton Roads.

Hampton Roads is the area in Virginia (and North Carolina, depending on who you talk to) that stretches from the Williamsburg, VA area all the way to Elizabeth City, NC. Although it seems like a lot of area covered, the drive time from one end to the other isn’t much longer than 2 hours. However, […]

A family smiles at the camera. Mom and dad hold their toddler daughter, who is just the right age to enjoy an indoor playground in Chesapeake, VA. The photo is in black and white.

The weather hasn’t been the greatest and our kids are driving us crazy in the house! You may be hiding in your room for some peace and quiet, mourning those crisp fall, and sunny spring days where you could go to the park to let the kiddos run off all their energy. Before you decide […]

A toddler wearing a teal dress with cats plays at a white table. She is doing the kind of child-centered exploratory play taught at Chesapeake Montessori School.

If you are the parent of young children, like me, chances are education is top of your mind these days. As a former teacher (in both public and private settings) I can tell you that I have very high standards when it comes to my children’s education. Although public school teachers are wonderful, sometimes the […]

A mom does nose kisses with her toddler daughter. The mom wears a tan jumpsuit and the girl is in a denim dress. The dress could easily have been purchased at Once Upon a Child in Chesapeake.

As parents, we are constantly looking for ways to, affordably, refresh our children’s’ wardrobes. Let’s face it, these kids grow so fast, and play so hard, that sometimes it just doesn’t make sense to buy everything new! Many of us are familiar with the idea of donating, or passing on, our children’s outgrown clothing. Every […]

A pair of sisters sits on a white blanket in a field of wildflowers. They wear red and teal. The oldest is old enough to participate in Chesapeake youth sports.

There’s no denying it, some of our greatest childhood memories come from participating in sports. We built friendships, learned new skills, maybe even found lifelong passions. As parents, we want what is best for our kids, and that means creating experiences for them that they will remember for a lifetime. Sports can be time consuming, […]
