parenting on thin ice

i am ever in awe of my husband's abilities as a parent. and he makes it look absolutely effortless. spontaneous, imaginative, creative, engaged.






tho' he did give her FOUR chocolate sandwiches in her lunch last friday. he says every child should experience that once in awhile. she thought it was brilliant.

She is adorable and probably very deserving of 4 chocolate sandwiches in her lunch. :)

I was happy to discover your blog today. I was unable to find a contact link. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

I would love to have SpellQuizzer reviewed in Moments of Perfect Clarity. If you are interested in hosting a giveaway of a SpellQuizzer license I'd be happy to supply a free license to the winner. You can learn more about the program at www.SpellQuizzer.com. There's a video demo you can watch at www.spellquizzer.com/SpellQuizzer-Demo.htm and a community site where SpellQuizzer users can share their spelling lists with one another (www.SpellQuizzer.com/Community). Finally, there's a page targeted to homeschooling families at www.spellquizzer.com/spelling-software-for-homeschoolers.htm. I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you very much!
