My son is two and half years old. Since he was 17 months, we have been letting him watch some TV. We started with some Kidsongs (a show from the 80s with real children singing songs and dancing). It...
From the moment I found out I was having a little girl, I dreamed of the moment she would start taking "baby dance." I imagined tiny little girls, twirling around in their tutus and clumsily falling on their toddler...
With school starting this month, my child's status as a stay-at-home child will come to an end. She will be starting preschool for the first time. Up until now, I have had the good fortune of being able to...
It's that time of year again. The big yellow buses return to our neighborhoods, the closed sign goes up on the pools, and the dozens of Pinterest posts get shared with bento box lunch ideas. And if you're a mom...
Amanda Mustin is so proud of her daughter Adaline! Adaline is three years old and was crowned Wee Miss Tiny Tot South Carolina 2022. When Amanda reached out to Columbia Mom to share the news, we had to know...
There’s a TikTok trend making the rounds right now where professionals from all different occupations share what they would or wouldn’t do based on the experiences they have had in their careers. For instance, a dentist lists five unhealthy...

Remember playing Chutes and Ladders together? Candyland? Connect Four? Uno? I loved those games. OK, not Candyland. I have a few good fuzzy memories of playing Candyland as a child. They include me always drawing a card to jump ahead and never...
In my journey of parenting, I have found that I have learned more than I have taught. I have two boys aged seventeen and nineteen, and a daughter who is twenty-one years old. It has been a joy and...
