Extended Breastfeeding Past the Toddler Age

Today is quite a special day — I have been breastfeeding my son for 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks, and 3 days. Yay for extended breastfeeding!



When I started breastfeeding, I didn’t have a goal in mind of how long I wanted to do it. I had such breastfeeding problems during the first two weeks with sore nipples, all I was concerned with was learning how to breastfeed correctly so it would stop hurting so much. Thinking about how long I was going to do it was furthest from my mind, all I… Continue

Jack (uh...don't ya mean Jill) of all trades!

If anyone's paid much attention, you'll notice that I've got quite a few things in the hopper, as they say! We have a running joke around here that we should be millionaires with the amount of "businesses" we have going at any one time! Our kids don't really understand why we aren't rollin' in the cash flow (teenager language, not to be confused with gangster speak!). Hubby and I both are the type of peeps that always have the latest,…

Pediatrician or Pedophile?

This is a very alarming story that just developed yesterday and I cringed in fear as I watched on TV last night. And so I have decided to move Food Safety discussions to next week in order to focus on this Pediatrician turn Pedophile story.



A Delaware pediatrician has been indicted on 471 felony counts in the alleged sexual abuse of his patients, prosecutors announced Monday.



The Sussex County grand jury indictment accuses Dr. Earl Bradley, 56, who has had a practice in…

Truthful Tuesday; February 23,2009!

OK, Truthful Tuesdays....once again, we are gathered here to expunge our psyche's of all of this unnecessary bullshit that we've been

carrying with us in tortured silence and not so silent misery.No

judgment, no ramifications, just support and love from those of us who

are exactly where you are....the brink of insanity, the end of our

rope, a not so high ledge. No matter the circumstances, we are with

you. Today, I'd like to confess…

Fleeting Moments of hormone laced Insanity

It's that time again, yes, everyone around me is either having a baby or anticipating trying to have a baby. I know, didn't I just post about

this? Anyways,there are two things that I have come to know as my

truths..they may even be universal. The first is that apparently I am

still on the fence about a third child because no matter how many times

I tell myself, I am done and I want to move on with my life, every

single time one of my…

Mothers; No matter how old our children may get, they will always be our "babies'

Today, I had an amazing realization. I used to hate when my Mom or my Mother in Law would call and ask all kinds of questions, or try to tell

us what to do, how we should be behaving or spending ( rather saving)

our money. It used to drive me crazy, back when I was in my 20's,

before I had my own little precious gems.And now I know, now I

understand fully...Now, I also realize I will be 10 times worse! We…

Training Our Kids for Marriage

Marriage intrigues me. The concept and complexity of marriage is too

big to contemplate at times. I have been fascinated with the

intricacies of relationships since I was a little girl, and most likely

because the first adult relationship I knew intimately, my parents', was

a marriage that couldn't work. I realized, before I could even

verbalize it, that there is a lot about relationships that is out of our

control, and that is a scary proposition. I wanted to take… Continue

I breastfed to keep asthma at bay...so why is my daughter being tested for it?

Just over 10 years ago, I lost a dear friend, Dexter, to asthma. He was a married father of two small children who were present when he died from the disease during one of the hottest days in Toledo. He couldn’t find one of his many inhalers in time to thwart off the attack. This is the reason I ask my husband to carry an inhaler wherever he goes even though his asthma is under control. For years, Dexter’s…

Epiphanies

I think I'm just about over rushing through my life trying to get what someone else has. Trying to feel the way I think someone else feels based on my own distant perception of their life. I'm over missing out on the me that is now in constant pursuit of happily ever after. After all, ever after is now.



I think I'm just about over allowing the media to fill my mind with sex, fear, lies and destructive gossip. It distracts me from productive, creative thought and fills my mind with… Continue

Giving up on Perfection

After my amazing results with P90X, I thought I was as close to perfect as I was going to get. Seeing that this was at age 40, I thought that was pretty darned good. But, life gets in the way and my… Continue

For decades in American households the most dreaded morning sound was that of an alarm clock. Sometime between 6 and 7am a beep or radio music signaled that it was time to get up and head to work. But in the early 21st century two things have begun to change. First, the alarm clock is going off a little bit later. And second, instead of putting on suits and driving to work, people are heading to the basement in their pajamas and turning on their personal computers. These are the early days…

My Un-Birthday So Far (With Cat Poop)...

The night before my birthday, last night, a dear friend I never see anymore because she lives in Berlin---GERMANY---visited and we stayed up talking and sharing a bottle of wine until midnight. I wouldn't have traded that visit for anything, but it was late, my son is an early riser and right before I headed for bed (where my husband snoozed blissfully) I started my period. Oh yes: TMI! TMI! I know. However, to carry on---my first birthday present was a huge dose of real life with cramps,…
