The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…
The day you’ve dreamed of for years has finally arrived! Your little girl is all grown up and has chosen a partner to start her life with, and you are officially a MoB -- Mother of the Bride! While congratulatory remarks are appropriate at this juncture, so are a few…
This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a thinking, acting, extended breastfeeding mom, passionate about my kids and natural parenting, caring for the earth and being vegetarian. I am putting together a book about the social issues breastfeeding moms face in today's mainstream culture and I am looking for breastfeeding photo submissions. More info can be found on my site.
What is your blogging philosophy?

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.
Hello there! I saw you on the vegetarian moms group. I love your mission statement to make breastfeeding more socially acceptable! How wonderful is that?!?! I just couldn't leave without giving you a comment and telling you a story, I once had a man say "I don't pee in the middle of a restaurant, why is it ok for you to nurse in here" yup, that's what we are up against..... My hope is that if my daughter ever has children, she will do so in a society that acts as if breastfeeding is a normal natural thing to do....not shocking, or obscene, or dirty. Anyhoo....I'll stop ranting now. :) All I really wanted to say was "hi".
G'day Melodie and welcome aboard :) I was a determined breastfeeding mom too, even through mastitis, blocked ducts.... you know the story I'm sure! But I'm so glad I did it and have three healthy munchkins to show for it :)
