My daughter finishes preschool this month—a huge milestone achieved and a new adventure about to begin! I am excited and looking forward to that momentous first day of kindergarten in the fall, but first, there is summer. I am faced with that eternal question that all parents must answer: How do you entertain children day […]

“I am the worst mother in the world.” A friend said this to me today because she “confessed” that she felt she needed some non-kid time, time to relax, refresh and care for herself. This reminded me of a recent visit with another friend. On this visit, my friend arrived at my house with her […]

A few weeks ago my in-laws were visiting from Mississippi. I walked into the kitchen and found my 3.5-year-old son telling my mother-in-law that “all that stuff is not trash.” He patiently explained that some things go into the recycling bin. Two things struck me: I realized that other states do not offer residents a […]

Spring is in the air — which means spring cleaning and the usual dilemma of a new wardrobe for my growing son. Organizing and rethinking children’s wardrobes, toys and other baby accessories are even more urgent for me this year with a new baby on the way. Good thing the annual PAMP Rummage Sale is […]

Are you thinking about the election? Not that election, but the PAMP 2012 election, of course! The 2012 PAMP election is very much on the minds of the PAMP Board of Directors these days. After a whirlwind year, the 2011-2012 Board term is coming to an end. We have been so very fortunate to have […]

New Beginnings

January always brings a lot excitement when thinking about the myriad of new opportunities to come, new chances to accomplish the things we never got to in the last year, and daring us to make our most distant dreams come true. The 365 days ahead are a blank slate…you may hold a new baby, job, […]

A while back a member asked the forum about how to teach our kids to really appreciate what they have. This summer during a 3-month trip to Europe with my preschooler, I thought of this question and realized that sometimes adults need a reminder to appreciate what we have too. That time away helped me […]

PAMP’s identity as a volunteer-led organization has been (and continues to be) a defining organizational value as well as our “Achilles’ heel.” We hold volunteerism as an essential ingredient that ensures a diverse and representative leadership team. The fact that all of our volunteers are also members cultivates an authenticity that trickles down to every […]

I always look forward to October like no other month. The rush of back-to-school is over and by now kids seem have settled into their new routines. The stress of the holidays still feels far away. The days are getting cooler and the air is saturated with the smells of autumn foliage, pumpkins and cinnamon. […]

“You must join PAMP!” My Bay Area friends repeatedly echoed this refrain when I decided to move here from San Diego in 2008. My friends were right. Joining PAMP is a must for any new parent in the area. I joined PAMP even before leaving San Diego and coordinated one of our house scouting trips […]

Community. That is the word that repeatedly came to mind while planning this year’s PAMP Family Day event. We had record-breaking attendance this year with over 100 families participating and over 350 guests. The overwhelming response to this event can only be attributed to the fantastic sense of community that PAMP engenders. A hearty thank […]

The long-awaited summer is upon us! Summer marks the arrival of the best time to splash in the local pools, play in the neighborhood parks, grill in your backyard, and just generally enjoy the long, sun-filled days. For the PAMP Board, summer is also the time for us to celebrate the many hard-working volunteers that […]

New Beginnings!

Letter from the BOD

On June 1, the term for the new PAMP Board of Directors officially begins. PAMP’s previous Board worked very hard developing our group’s strategic plan so that our volunteer-run organization may continue to thrive long into the future. PAMP began as a very small, localized group of parents. Our membership has grown tremendously over the […]

Each spring brings new beginnings in the beauty that graces our surroundings. I am reminded in this time of transition to stay present and be in the moment. Transitions are moments in our lives that can keep us distracted and uneasy, but they should really be given special attention and preparation. Change is an opportunity […]
