Friends, We have the opportunity to help get a bill passed which will allow women to receive the proper treatment and recovery time necessary after a mastectomy. Here
There’s a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It’s about eliminating the ‘drive-through’ Mastectomy where women are forced to go home just a… Continue

Sociologists are interested in how touchy-feely our teens have become these days? Any high schooler knows that if she'd rather wave than hug to say 'hello', she may be perceived as a social misfit! How did that
come to be? And is it a good thing? My teenagers and their friends are not exception. I recently went to the Prom gathering spot to take pictures of my daughter, her date and their dinner group. There was so much hugging and chest… Continue

I've been talking a lot about working out, getting in shape, and even started a running blog
. Through all this hard work I AM seeing results. I've lost pretty much all my baby weight, but now my issue is toning up. Like most women with babies, my tummy is my problem area.When I got the opportunity to review The Skinny Tank by Teez-her I was super stoked! I got this tank in white. The packaging was adorable. It came in a hot pink gift bag with… Continue

I've always had a love/hate relationship with Ikea, the build-it-yourself furniture superstore. One the one hand, even before the recession I appreciated a bargain, and I like to think that even if I had $5,000 to spend on an end table, I wouldn't be so wasteful. Walking through Ikea's beautiful but maze-like showroom and seeing the ridiculously low prices gives me the same high I got the first time I went to Loehmann's (back in the day when it was a real outlet with real discounts; heck, I… Continue

Easy Behavioral Modification (yeah, right!)
Usually, I delete those unsolicited emails offering tips on anti-aging superfoods (acai berries! no, tofu!, actually, now it's quinoa!), positive thinking ("send this to 5 supportive friends, and something amazing will happen in the next 9 minutes!"), and income ("Yes, you can turn your journalling into a 6 figure book contract!"). But one popped up the other day which I couldn't resist, promising 'Brand New Ways… Continue

If you have kids under ten, you are probably familiar with the JumpStart

My family had a chance to play around in this amazing world and I just posted our review on my blog. And those awesome folks at… Continue

Dedicated to my oldest son, Brandon
We met face-to-face for the first time what seems like yesterday, but years have passed, and I have known you for a lifetime. You have led me on a remarkable journey through this forest of existence, and have taught me to cherish every detail. You have guided my feet toward a less traveled pathway, and on it, you have opened my eyes to a world full of treasures all others have taken for granted, cast aside or completely ignored.
I knew… Continue

He lies motionless in an unfamiliar place
He tries to view his world
Only to be met with nothingness
Faded mutterings of peculiar articulations
Surround his being
Taunting his curiosity
Focus . . .
His recognition fails, once more
He knows someone is there
Somewhere in the darkness
The shuffling of footsteps
On a rigid…

Perhaps all pregnant women will agree with me when I say that one of the most awaited pregnancy moments is when you get to listen to your baby’s heartbeat for the first time; or better yet, when you get your first glimpse of him while he is still in your tummy.
Our experience was no different. We rushed to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City as soon as our obstetrician advised us that we could have pictures of our baby taken through 3D ultrasound. Unfortunately, Daniel was not… Continue

“It sucks when” this was a trending topic on twitter. Some of the comments were funny and some were not so funny. There was one comment caught my eye and made me think it does suck when there is not enough money to go around for all the things need in your daily life. When you’re not 100% sure where your next dollar will come from or if you not sure if you can provide food for your family. As it stands now I have not have to think about this, but am I just 3 paychecks away from this…maybe I… Continue

The rudeness of people never ceases to amaze me. There you are . . . just going about your day-to-day life, when someone does something or says something just downright rude. The nerve! When this happens to me, I'm usually so stunned by their audacity that I cannot think of a reply until moments, even days later when I realize, after careful consideration of how this person affected my life, invaded my personal space, and (sometimes) even triggered a tear or two.
I was brought up to… Continue

A - Age: 37 going on dead
B - Bed size: not big enough, but apparently suited for a queen. I'm assuming that queen didn't have a cover-hogging, freight train-sounding husband, dogs who only sleep on Mom's side of the bed, or two small kids running into her room in the middle of the night because
is out to get them!
C - Chore you hate: How about I just list all the ones I don't hate? That would be a whole lot… Continue

Continuation from yesterday's posting (see post immediately below this one): And Now . . . The Rest of the Story (RIP, Mr. Harvey)
I left the computer for (what was intended to be) a brief moment of comforting one of the twins while he was paying homage to the Great White Porcelin God. However, in the midst of rubbing his back and wiping his face as he hurled projectile masses of unknown constituents into the depths of clear blue waters, the phone rang. I let it go to voicemail,… Continue

Have you ever tried getting work done when you feel like death? Do you fall behind on daily tasks when you're so sick that you just want to lie still, close your eyes, shut out the world and finally give your body the rest it needs to recouperate, but can't? If you're a mother, you know all too well what I'm talking about. Why is it that we, mothers, must carry on despite the fact that we feel like warmed over road kill?
What inspired this post? Yep, you guess it! I'm freakin' sick… Continue

Being penis challenged, I have absolutely no idea why it seems near impossible for little boys to pee only in the toilet. One would think that the target is big enough. Most toilet seats are about 1.5 feet long, and about 6 inches wide; plenty of room to adequately catch a stream of kiddie pee, right? WRONG. I find pee all over the bathroom. It’s on the floor, sprinkled on the bathtub, and don’t even get me started on the collection of pee I ALWAYS find in puddles at the base of the toilet. It… Continue
