About 9 or 10 months ago, we were sitting at home during a pretty significant storm. Several tornadoes touched down in the area and we ended up losing power for a couple of days. This was early in the summer and the temperature was fooling around with 90 degrees.

I looked in the mirror and actually scared myself. It was one of those pull-your-head-back-and-scream "Yikes" thingys. Not good.
Where are my eyebrows? When did I put purple marker under my eyes? Just how much grey hair do I have

It was an exciting day yesterday. I did a root canal
treatment in the morning and a graduating student in dentistry visited our clinic in the afternoon. Mike was just looking around, trying to get a feel of the whole private practice thing. He was looking at options available to him. We spent the rest of the afternoon talking about his plans and seeing my patients.
It’s so good to know that someone so young like Mike is already… Continue

One third of all children in the United States are overweight or obese and at risk for medical illness because of their weight. Is your child part of that group? If so, insufficient exercise could be partly to blame.
A new study from the British… Continue

Did you ever think about the dignity that you lose at the end of pregnancy and, of course, in the birth? How many people within those two months see our vaginas and stick their fingers up them? It's really disturbing when you think about it that way, isn't it? The place that is supposed to be the most private on your body suddenly becomes the focus of many people's attention. Something that your mother always told isn't supposed to be touched except by you or your husband (my mother was a… Continue

It was that time of year again, when kids go off to college. I was witnessing hysterical mothers all around me, crying at Starbucks, breaking down on the treadmill at my gym. I know that particular meltdown. It’s different from “I can’t pay the bills” or “We are about to lose our house” or “I can no longer fit into my fat pants!”
My son left last year. I was surprised and quietly proud of keeping it all together. I was more focused on the preparation of it all. I had seen the… Continue
