  • Danielle Cater: Be sure to give your kids what they need

    Once the snow melted this week, life went back to normal and we all found ourselves busy with our regular day-to-day activities, and trying to catch up on everything we had put on the back burner during the snow days.
    Our household had a busy weekend, and among the events of the weekend, we celebrated our second birthday in three weeks. That’s right, our perfectly-blended family has given us two daughters who celebrate birthdays within three weeks of each other.

  • Danielle Cater: Find excitement in the boring days

    Many people got to take a vacation day this past Monday for MLK Day. What this day stands for is a great cause and an issue that should be addressed, but for many people, it was just another holiday.
    Our office is like most other offices, so we were open to the public Monday. But since schools and daycares were closed, I got the privilege of staying home with the four best daughters in the world. We started off the day with the attitude of fun.

    Next week my youngest daughter will be celebrating her fifth birthday, and these are the times when you reflect on your life and how the presence of a child can really change who you are and what you do with yourself.

  • Danielle Cater: Girls’ day teaches tough lessons

    Any time I get a spare girls’ day with my daughters it’s like Christmas morning in my mind. I see us as the happiest bunch of chickadees. In my dream world we go shopping and find wonderful bargains with laughter and sweet words; there is no fighting or crying. We go to the park and play carefree in perfect weather. And then we polish off the day by all cooking together in the kitchen for a thankful husband who’s happy to see his girls when he returns home from work.
