When I was in college, I remember a friend quoting Arlo Guthrie as saying that there are songs in the air all the time, just waiting to be written down. All we have to do as songwriters is be open to catching them.

We all know how important it is to set goals - even when you're little! Help your child create a set of wish leaves that describe the type of person he or she wants to be.
We all have those days. Those days that seem endless, the days in which our kids won't stop bickering and you are just about to pull your hair out if one more fit is thrown.
These hard days usually start after a long stretch without any outside playtime due to either weather or illness, and can seem incredibly difficult to curtail.
Of course you do. Who could forget quality programming like Step by Step (why did creepy older cousin Cody live in their driveway in his van?) and Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
But best of all was that sweet sweet half hour every Friday known as Boy Meets World.
The show followed our favorite "Brillo head" Cory Matthews as he navigated the treacherous hallways of middle school, high school and beyond.
If you live on the East Coast, chances are good that you're without power due to Hurricane Sandy. Kids have been home from school the last few days, and might be out of school in some areas for the week. Everyone is getting a little stir crazy!

I grew up in Southern California. It was a great place to enjoy childhood, what with easy access to beaches, practically year round sunshine and Disneyland. I have tons of great memories of visiting Disneyland starting when I was five (when, much to my parents horror, I apparently spent most of my time pointing at costumed characters and other features and declaring them fake) and up through when I left for college. I remember often asking to go to Disneyland when I was little and my mom (and other moms) answering that it was a little too far away for more than an annual visit.
American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars is based on the doll company’s Girl of the Year and offers several positive messages in friendship, family, and the importance of getting help when needed.
Throughout the story, McKenna (played by Jade Pettyjohn) learns valuable lessons about what it takes to overcome unexpected hurdles, whether physical (like getting injured during a gymnastics competition), or emotional (like the embarrassment of needing a tutor to improve in school).
