We love the holidays! Not only do they offer us a chance to take time out from the hustle and bustle of school and parenting routines, but they also give us a chance to pause, take a deep breath, and give thanks for real quality time together.
Jenn Wasko, a fellow HOMER Mom from Houston, loves making costumes with her family. She shares her story and also a little inspiration for you if you’re thinking about making your own costume creation, using your child’s passion as a springboard. Check out Robot for Halloween in Homer Stories, then read Jenn’s story. What crafty character will you and your child make together?
It’s parent-teacher conference time! For many parents, the pressure is on. Your child has been in school for a few months now. How are they stacking up? You’ve seen the insta-videos of proud moms sharing shots of kids reading fluently at age 5, winning the advanced spelling bee, or reading every sight word known to man. It’s tough not to feel a touch of anxiety as we take our seats in those tiny chairs and prepare to hear how our kids are progressing as readers (and friends, and citizens, etc. etc. etc.)
