Tweet I just put my little crumb snatchers on the bus for the first day of school.  There were no tears.  In fact, they jumped out of the car and sprinted towards the doors of the bus.  Go figure.  My husband and I looked around at the other parents giving last minute pep talks, holding back tears and waving as the bus pulled off.  My kids did

BULLY
April 13 2012, 0 Comments


When you are a mother of little ones, the moment they are out from under your cover and introduced into the world, you worry. You want them to be safe, cared for and guarded, but you know that no one is going to do it to the same high level of caution as you the parent. Then introduce school...my eldest son is in Kindergarten and has ALREADY complained of some child bullying him. So when I was given the opportunity to preview the movie "Bully", I had to go. "They punch me in the [...]

Pregnancy Over 35 – The Most Common Issues
April 03 2012, 0 Comments


Although it is said that the pregnancy of women over 35 is risky, it looks like these risks have been exaggerated. In the majority of the cases the outcome is perfect. It is true that the chances of the appearance of certain complications is higher than in case of younger women, but still the most influential factor in this case is the health of the mother before conceiving. This is good because it is a factor that you can control. [caption id="attachment_1819" align="aligncenter" width= [...]

March 29 2012, 0 Comments


As a mom, a thermometer is the one tool that you must have handy at all times. And not one of those thermometers that you have to put under a squirmy kid's arm for like 12 minutes. I'm talking one that you can grab at two o'clock in the morning when your child is groaning, you have one eye open, and need a quick read on the situation. Vicks Behind Ear Thermometer I recently received a sample thermometer from Vicks to try out. As a total gadget girl, I was really excited to start taking ever [...]

Do Something for YOURSELF!
February 10 2012, 2 Comments


I have been wearing glasses since I was in the 7th grade. I was super excited for the change, up until my classmates made fun of me. Luckily, I only had to wear them in order to see the chalkboard, but as I got older, glasses became a daily fixture on my face. Eventually, I got to the point where I really wanted contact lenses, but feared touching my eye on a daily basis. Thankfully, science came up with 30-day lenses which allowed me to wear contacts for one full month, minimizing the finge [...]

In 2005, I became pregnant and lost our first baby around 9.5 weeks. Quite honestly, I was shattered.

December 01 2011, 0 Comments


According to the March of Dimes, approximately 6,000 women infected with HIV give birth. The virus can be transmitted to the baby during pregnancy, delivery and nursing. AmericanPregnancy.org states that if an untreated woman gives birth to a baby, there is a 25% chance that she will pass it on to her baby. If she gets treatment, that number drops down to 2%. This is why it is so important for women to know their status, especially if she is pregnant. December 1st is World AIDS Day, Get Tes [...]
