Because a shared experience is a powerful thing. It creates community, which allows for sparking ideas and learning from each other. Social media can take us a long way toward building relationships with each other, but it will never replace the power of face-to-face contact. The Mom Con is a day to get inspired by our speakers, empowered with new ideas, and connect with each other in real life. It’s a place for creative + motivated moms to be who they really are.

Children’s Book Signing in Pittsburgh: Papa’s New Home


Book Review: Papa's New Home by Jessica Lynn Curtis

Papa’s New Home is the award-winning story of a young girl who loses her grandfather, Papa, only to get to see him again in a miraculous visit to his new home, heaven.

Book Review: Papa's New Home by Jessica Lynn Curtis

Here are a few of my favorite things about this book.
I like that the book not only mentions Jessie’s sadness and confusion about Papa’s death, but also her anger. I think that anger is an often overlooked stage of grief in regards to young children. While anger is only mentioned in one or two sentences I think that it’s enough to open up communication with a child who is experiencing anger in grief.
I like how Papa explains that bodies can get old, or sick, or hurt and stop working, but that our spirits never die.
I really like that Papa is portrayed as still looking the same age as when he passed. Many hold the belief that everyone in heaven is young, but I think that concept can be confusing for young kids.

Book Review: Papas New Home by Jessica Lynn Curtis

This book obviously contains spiritual elements with mentions of heaven, spirits, and angels. However, this is not a specifically Christian book as there is no mention of God or Jesus. This book would appeal to families of many different faiths. It paints a very vivid picture of Heaven beyond what is mentioned in Scripture depicting lost loved ones with jobs they enjoyed on earth (such as gardening) and living in houses with beloved pets and eating chocolate cake with relatives.

Book Review: Papa's New Home by Jessica Lynn Curtis

The story is beautiful and the lovely illustrations definitely help portray a feeling of peace. For the right child it could be a powerful tool to help with the loss of a grandparent.

If you’re in the Pittsburgh area you can meet the author of Papa’s New Home, Jessica Lynn Curtis, at a book reading and signing this Saturday!

You may not be near Pittsburgh to experience Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark firsthand, but you can be absolutely anywhere to watch me make an idiot of myself, get broke, and bust up my knee cap. Enjoy! (Watch video here)

Fun Slides Skatepark Pittsburgh

My family was invited to visit the VIP Grand Opening of Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark in Pittsburgh last Friday and we had so much fun!

The new facility is located at Pines Plaza Shopping Center on Perry HWY behind Shop N Save.
Fun Slides Skatepark Pittsburgh

ABOUT THE SKATEPARK
The 33,000 square foot black light facility, located in the space under the Shop N Save in Pines Plaza Shopping Center is divided in sections based on skill level and every new skater, regardless of age or ability, is assigned an instructor for basic lessons. With ramps ranging in height from six foot tall down to short beginner ramps just about anyone can learn and have fun.

Fun Slides Skatepark Pittsburgh

Fun Slides, a multi-award-winning product from Simtec, Co., are plastic sliders that attach under athletic shoes. They provide the sensation of sliding on a hardwood floor with socks on. At Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark and Party Centers, kids and adults slide on the skatepark’s carpeted ramps, jumps and slide rails for an easy to learn thrill.
Athletic shoes must be worn in the park at all times! No FLIP FLOPS!
Fun Slides Skatepark Pittsburgh

Adaline is 4.5. She had difficulty mastering the standing slides, but she still had a lot of fun using the butt slides. (See video above)
Fun Slides Skatepark Pittsburgh

Everyone who skates at Fun Slides Park, must have a signed waiver.
*Anyone under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign the waiver.
*18 and over may sign their own waivers given that they produce proper ID.
Fun Slides Skatepark Pittsburgh

Fun Slides Park requires that helmets be worn by children under 8. Elbow pads, knee pads and wrist guards are recommended in all areas especially for novice skaters.
We brought our own helmet and elbow and knee pads for Adaline, who is 4.5 years old.
(If you watched the video I posted above you’ll see me take a spill and smash my knee with no pads on. It’s only banged up now, nothing serious, but I’d still recommend using knee pads! Ouch!)
Fun Slides Skatepark Pittsburgh

We all thought that Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark was really cool. Adaline had a blast going from slide to slide and even my husband enjoyed sliding around. We’ll definitely visit again.
