Symptoms to Take Notice of in Children

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…

How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

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…

Because I Need More Sleep

Sometimes, I just really don’t know where my brain is. I think that it’s like a fuse. When it’s on overload the fuse snaps shut and the power supply is just not there.

Take this one…..

I wake up super early because my son has color war this week at camp. He’d like his hair to be blue along with some blue face paint. NOOOO problem! Whatever my little prince wants. I put blue lightening bolts on his little cheeks (face, thank you) and spray his hair blue. I’m super careful… Continue

Womens Right to Vote!

On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, granting American women the right to vote.

In the 233 years of our great nation's existence, women have had the right to vote for only 89 of those years. My grandmother was two years old when this right was "given" to women.

Take a moment to read about what our…

What is Your Mom Blogger Status?

from my blog post on Mom Spark

I’m curious. Has anyone else seen a trend in the SAME mom bloggers who are being handpicked for special events, conference panels, or incredible business opportunities? With the web overly saturated with so many fabulous mom bloggers, it seems that only a select few are being recognized over and over again. Why is this happening? This observation has me intrigued… Continue

Body Building and Babies: The Importance of a Feeding Schedule -

When Do I Feed My New Born Baby?

The subject of an infant’s feeding and naptime schedule is extremely important. It sets the tone for baby and the entire family’s peace and wellbeing. From day one, infants (and later, children) are looking for guidance from their parents for the 2 most basic and important activities in a baby’s life: Eating and Sleeping.

The Importance of a Feeding Schedule

Consistency is key to any diet no matter if you are 1 month old or… Continue

Under Construction But for Now ...

The Childhood Cancer Awareness page of my blog is under construction but for now I will mention that is donating all proceeds from their Oatmeal Raisin Shower Gel to Cookies for Cancer.

Babies Come On Their Own Time Frame: Notes from my "Baby" Garden

When a pregnant woman is in the last 4-8 weeks of her pregnancy, it can sometimes feel like forever before she will welcome her new little one. Moreoever, the physical toll a women's body goes through those last few weeks can be draining. However, having been through two pregnancies, each one completely different, I like think of those last few weeks in a totally different way.

I like to think that because God or Principle is guiding this idea, there is a right time for everything… Continue

W/W Raging Waters!!!

We recently went to Raging Waters for my Mom's B-Day! My mom loves anything with water so we thought it would be a different thing to do. It was a little crowded, but still very fun. I haven't been since a kid. Easy LOVED it. He jumped right into the pools and was so excited. Because I was worried about my camera I didn't get pictures of the rest of the gang. Naturally I had to get a couple snapshots of the boy. I hope to go back soon before the summer is over.…

The Human Antenna

Ever since I was a young girl, I knew I was built to be a human antenna. I receive signals very easily. I prefer this word to the word 'sensitive' because when you say someone is sensitive, they see you as someone who gets hurt when you tell them that their ears stick out. Mine does, so don't tell me that. I deliver sucker punches.

Anyway, as a kid, you're a bigger antenna than when you're bigger because you're grown-up, you can't act like a kid who kicks people in the b-lls when… Continue

flank steak and arugula salad

I am sure you have all noticed that my recipes are mostly light and healthy. I tend to eat that way in the summer as I live in sunny southern California and am in a bathing suit every weekend. It sucks to be me, I know.

This fall however, you will see a dramatic difference in my recipes. I am from Indiana. Comfort food is my middle name and I can only be parted from it for so long. As the leaves change, look for my recipes to become… Continue

Stop The Beeping

Let me just start off by saying, I live in an apartment complex and I love my beauty sleep. I go to bed anywhere between 8:30pm and 9:00pm and get up when my alarm goes off at 5:30am.

At 4:50am I hear a beep and I choose to ignore it hoping it just goes away. beep.....beep.....beep. I can't make the beep go away in my head, all along thinking it's the resident's upstairs alarm clock going off. The man upstairs usually leaves early in the morning, but I continue to hear the beep, it's… Continue

My Dear Payton,

I love you so much. I know you were in pain especially your last day here on earth. I know you are in a much better place now.

You changed my life. I never understood the love people have for their dogs. I never thought I would be one of THOSE people. I didn't want my house to smell like dog. I didn't want fur on my cloths. I didn't want anything to do with getting a puppy no matter how cute.

We met you at 4 wks old and brought you home at 8 wks.… Continue

Caring Hearts

We recently celebrated our 37th birthday here at Dillon. In 1972 our organization began by finding homes for 100 orphans from South Korea. We have grown and expanded since then, but our heart for the children has never wavered. To help with that mission several of our Caring Hearts groups held fundraising events in honor of our birthday. You can check out the photos (and learn more about Caring Hearts) at We raised almost $900 which will be used… Continue

The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Back in my teaching days, whenever my kindergarten children were having a crummy day we always pulled out Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Through story and illustrations Viorst and Cruz perfectly portray the emotions felt on those days when nothing goes right. Yesterday was that day for me. So here it is, my own Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

My kid woke up at 5am screaming and wouldn’t go back to bed.

I could… Continue

Board Books

Board books were originally created with a specific purpose in mind. Unfortunately, in recent years this purpose has been lost and publishing companies are cashing in by printing books intended for older children into board book form. I find this incredibly frustrating.

So here is my plea: let’s refocus our attention on the original intentions of board books. Let’s start with what board books are not. Board books are not miniature versions of other children’s literature. Kevin… Continue
