Happy New Year! I trust your holiday season was a good one!
After the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, January is a good time to settle in and enjoy a comfy, cozy winter. We here on the KC Parent staff are divided on the issue of summer vs. winter. Yours truly is very much a warm weather gal, while over on the digital side, Kristina Light sure loves the cold and winter. (For the record, I think all you winter-loving folk are nuts!) To that end, she’s the perfect person to put together ideas on how your family can relish some downtime and enjoy a comfy, cozy January in your home. Check out all of her great ideas. And, just so I don’t seem like a complete winter downer, one thing I do love this time of year is the citrus fruit in season—so tasty!
Spend a short amount of time with me and you’ll learn I’m a talker. So much so that now my younger gets in the car after school and says, “Because I know you’ll ask: I don’t have any homework, my day was pretty good and nothing out of the ordinary happened.” I need to change up my repertoire and get creative in my conversations. For tips on inspiring creative conversations with your kids, check out Regan Lyon's article.
If you aren’t planning a birthday party this month, you will sometime in the next year! This issue brings our quarterly Birthday Party Guide , full of ways to make your child’s party a success!

Stay warm, KC!
