It's been a wonderful Christmas break. Sometimes you don't realize how the hustle and bustle of the work week slowly beats you down until you have some time to sit down and relax and then you realize, "Oh, I forgot what this felt like!"
While we don't have any stories to tell from our break, I did realize a few things:

After Christmas holiday season, future shopping is the last thing you want to think about. Still, December and January are prime times to plan out your shopping for the year. Planning can make the difference between making good use of the sales coming up on one hand or overspending and passing up bargains on the other. If you can't think about shopping now,… Continue

Hi everyone! My son just made this video about a girl he is in love with! He has always been so shy! But his gift is filmmaking! So the only way for him to express his feelings for the girl was to make this film! I think it is the most romantic way to get a girl's attention that I've ever seen in my whole life!! What do you think?? You have to see it to believe it!

I am the first one to say parenting is serious business. After all, I’m not only a mother and a grandmother, my work as an author is based on parenting as well. And like most parents, I focus on how and what my children learn, especially during their formative years. The formative years are the most important years in terms of the characteristics and traits they obtain and carry into their adult lives.
Parents place an enormous amount of energy on their children’s academic education,… Continue

During a holiday work party, I went up to my husband to give him a hug when a co-worker asked me, "Do you know you are the luckiest woman in this room?".
I knew what she meant but still I asked "why?". She went on to tell me how wonderful my husband is and how I should love and cherish him. (What made her think I don't love and cherish him?) As we left she made her way to him and tried to go in for.... for well, I don't know what.... but she got a half hug at best.

There is no "right time" to tell your children that there is no Santa.
Worse yet, there is no right way.
If you're lucky, as you're stumbling to get the words out, your son will pat you calmly on shoulder and say, "Look, Mom, I know what you're trying to tell me, and it's okay. I've already figured it out."
Sort of like he's figured out that whole birds and bees thing
Yeah, yeah, I know: happy new year to you,… Continue

Facebook -- you love it, hate it or both. In my case, it's both. I love it for the fact that it connects me to families and friends, old and new. And I hate it for the fact that it doesn't seem to care about our privacy.
More so when it allowed third-party applications, which made us more vulnerable to malwares and stuffs. Of course, the onus is on us, users, to be every bit of responsible in our interaction using FB. But still, FB programmers could have just developed these apps… Continue

The word "friend" has been so tainted by frenemies, rotating BFF's and being able to defriend with a click of a mouse that we now need a new term for our closest friends and allies: wives. A Band of Wives is a website for women who are interested in women's issues, proactive, supportive and generally down with making their friendships a priority. www.abandofwives.ning.com

I was shocked yet thoroughly entertained by a friend of mine who told me that his sister got her fiance to agree (then adhere to when they got married) to change his last name to the last name of her child's father.. He agreed to that! Ha!
I spent some time thinking about the dynamics of a relationship and the personality of these two individuals that could lead to this sort of decision, and was thinking if I could ever be so self-serving, inconsiderate and downright… Continue

I was outraged last night when I saw my 6-year old, J, punching Mr. Bear in the face. I felt physically sick and became more upset than he could possibly understand. .
I really wanted to tell him what that little yellow bear means to me. I'm not smart enough to describe on a 1st grade level how that stuffed animal continues to impact my life
. However, we're all adults, right? So, I figured I'd just tell you, instead. .
