If you commented on the Name Game blog entry, keep watch on Caitlin’s “Mabel Files” (www.blog.mabel.ca) where she will soon be posting the winner of the Camp Pack. Caitlin takes care of all the official stuff and I get to have the blogging fun. Heck, I’m on maternity leave so it seems fair that I run the contest and someone else worries about monitoring entries, wouldn’t you say?
Although I’m on mat leave, I have not fallen off the… Continue

I am feeling so much pressure to join Facebook. But I am reluctant for so many reasons. Some having to do with the CIA (I am, after all, the President of the Paranoid Club!) and some having to do with the fact that I still view it primarily as a forum for young adults and high schoolers.
I feel it belongs to my children. Facebook was new when my two oldest went off to college. I still feel that it is theirs and that I would be infringing. I think it's great for other adults. I am… Continue

I forgot how much I love the sun. I've not been on holiday abroad for 5years and I have spent about 4 of those summers being pregnant. After managing through 30 degrees of heat whilst 38weeks pregnant (twice), 6months pregnant and 3months pregnant I was not a big fan of any heat whatsoever, in fact winter became my favourite time of year.
But this year it is different
1) I am NOT pregnant
2) I can fit into lovely summer dresses… Continue

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

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
