Germs are everywhere. Unless you’re living in a Level-4 biocontainment facility, there are germs on the surfaces of everything in your house. Bacteria, viruses and molds are crafty at finding hospitable environments to hang out. They like it moist and dark and can hide in plain sight, sometimes in the most unlikely of places.
Here's where you can catch hidden germs red-handed:

I am reading Heather Armstrong’s (better known as dooce.com to millions who read her personal blog) book It Sucked and Then I Cried
. It’s insightful, self-deprecating and hilarious, as I expected — I love her blog. So I thought I’ll post a dooce-ish entry inspired by Heather’s writing:
So we finally set up our bed tonight. We moved into this house about a month ago, and we still were sleeping on just the box spring and mattress. (Well, mostly Don sleeps in the bed and I… Continue

I'm not embarrassed to say it, "I love the 80's!" I'm sure I have a diary entry somewhere that reads "...when I grow up I want to be just like Coco (ya know, Irene Cara's character from the film, Fame)." I think it was a combo of my young age, the music and the fashion. Truth be known, I listen to 80's music all the time. In fact, my I-pod is loaded with tunes from Culture Club, Madonna, Donna Summer and The Go-Go's. And as much as I love me some 80's fashion I did make a promise to my husband… Continue

Warm soft blankets and me in a mound
My dreams are shaken up
As sleep heeds a sound
Shrill music blaring, I wanted to shout
My arm auto lifts to slam the noise out
The button of snooze is one I adore
It battles the time so I can snore more
Three maybe four, I push time to the limit
My body rises slowly forcing my head slowly in it
The hardest of chores is almost behind me
As getting me up is truly the key
To getting him dressed… Continue

At some point or another many parents have placed their infant in front of a mirror and wondered if their child could understand that it was their own reflection they were seeing. Based on the infant's reaction, most parents realize pretty quickly that their baby doesn't really understand that it is themselves in the mirror. This raises the question of when do babies and young children begin to develop a sense of self? Child psychologists have used this mirror test in a creative way to help… Continue

One of the posts today on the babywearer forum really upset me, and I wanted to share it with you as an example of why we need further education about breastfeeding (and also to make sure that word gets around about this principal’s actions). This was posted by one of the babywearer members in response to what happened to a local mom:

Taking action to reduce the unnecessary in my life has been my goal this week.
I've written down a list of all the things I think I have to do, I think I want to do and what I think I should be doing, and methodically reviewed each one to make sure it's something I'm not wasting energy and valuable time on. Particularly the latter, because I'm time rich right now. Read more...

Safe and unsafe plastics are a hot topic currently. Certain plastics can release chemicals that young children who are still developing can absorb. These chemicals can do harm in the long term. Look at the recycling number on the bottom of the bottle.
Plastics to Avoid:
These plastics contain some chemicals that can disrupt hormone levels or may be carcinogenic. Unfortunantly #7 is used in many baby bottles, five-gallon water jugs and many reusbale sports… Continue

Good evening, or early morning everyone! When you get a chance, will you please stop by my blog and let me know your opinion on my items? Especially my memory boards.

I have an idea in mind, just need some feedback.
Also, does anyone have web-hosting for their blog or just use free sites like Blogger? I am going to register my… Continue

I have a story to share with you from a mom who I coached nearly 9 months ago. She sent me a message on Facebook the other day and told me her dilemma..... her son left that morning for school and ended up forgetting his soccer cleats for the big game after school. Now for some moms, this means dropping whatever you have going and running to bring your child the forgotten item in… Continue
