Would it surprise you to know that girls are twice as likely to drop out of sporting activities through their teenage years than boys? Or to realize that most young girls start engaging in organized sports up to two whole years later than boys? …
One of the most devastating things that can happen to any family is substance abuse in any form. Anything in excess is never good for anyone. That could be anything from too much food, exercise, alcohol or even shopping. Addictive behaviors can turn relationships upside down for those who…

Kids can have the strangest fears, and yet we all seem to treat such fears in the worst possible ways. We shrug them off and think that our kids will outgrow them, or we advise our kids to suck it up, or we refer to the abstract by saying, "There is nothing to fear but fear itself," which probably means nothing to a 3-year-old or even a teenager. The dangers of mistreating a child's fear can be, at its simplest, a lifelong mild phobia to, at its most complicated, self-harm, self-sabotage, and…See More

Members of the military and their families have probably asked this question on some occasion or another, "Why do they do it?" Why do men and women choose to become soldiers knowing that they would put their lives in danger? I'm sure non-military people have asked this question as well, and many of us come to the conclusion that they are doing it because they believe in the cause, they are patriots, and they do it because it will keep their families safe. But there are, after all, stories…See More

Here's a heartfelt memoir exploring why countless women, especially black women, give so much to the men in their lives at any cost. Whether or not you agree with the things Donna Britt says, there is a lot of meaningful discussion in the pages of her book, not only about the men in black women's lives, but also issues that black women in general face growing up. There are truths in this book that can be applied to all women, regardless of race. It's a perspective, and it's an opening of…See More
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a mom to a thirteen month old and most times, he can be overwhelming, but I'd rather have him overwhelming and healthy rather than sedate and ill. He has learned how to climb, and get down (and climb, and get down, and climb...) so these days, breathing for me is optional, but I repeat my mantra (active and healthy, rather than sedate and ill).
I've also decided to join this group because I handle web publicity for Hachette Book Group's mommy/parenting titles. I'd like to be able to offer mommy bloggers the chance to get ahold of our books, most of them pre-pub, and review them--perhaps even interview authors while they're at it.
If you're interested in reviewing mommy and parenting books, let me know! I'll always be happy to send you a copy: email@example.com

Hi Anna. I just checked out your blog and I love it. I had fun watching your videos. I got to laughing hysterically at some of the youtube videos (couldn't stop with just McCain -- and I wonder how hours fly by when I am online) of people making "Freudian" slips on TV. Ahhh... I would not want their job b/c if I said some of the things they said, I would not be able to stop laughing.
Your blogs look and feel is one of the best I have seen. I look forward to reading more!
Whenever you have the time, I would love it if you would check out my sites. Thanks!
Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time. I just love this site. The women are so embracing and I hope you are enjoying your experience as much as I am.
