Get a HAPPY Start to 2014!


Happy New Year, Practical friends!  We hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday season are are ready to hit the ground playing in 2014!

We are snowed in here in Connecticut and loving every minute of it.  The kids are excited to finally see some snow that actually sticks around and head outside in the 10 degree (brrr!) weather to make snow angels and snowmen/snowgirls (obviously).

I kicked off the New Year over on The Huffington Post with some tips on setting some goals that will positively impact your kids.  This is the year of HAPPY KIDS!  Please stop over there to check out that article.

At some point I will have to get back to reality and finish writing The Happy Kid Handbook, but for now I’m off to throw a few snowballs!

Enjoy your weekend and may you have an easy transition back to reality…
