I was presented with the update of JJ’s hospital billing a few minutes ago and it almost gave me a heart attack. The nurse said it was just an update for yesterday’s confinement and did not include doctor’s fees yet and the additional fees for the day. I secretly hoped that JJ would be discharged today so no more fees will accumulate, but unfortunately, the doctor didn’t give the go signal because JJ still had low oxygen count… Continue

After months of being away from our boys, we needed to bring back the bond. We could tell they have missed us so, as much as we’ve missed them. After all, there was really never a time that we… Continue

Remember the old saying, "Insanity is repeating the same action over and over again and expecting different results?"
If your actions are beginning to feel like reruns from a bad sitcom and you are not getting the results you want, you may very well be stuck in a spin cycle and it is time to try something new.
If your stomach is tied in knots and you are going around and around to no avail, you've realized that you are… Continue

Yes, I do drop f-bombs, s-bombs, all kinds of bombs when I write. Depends on my mood as to what comes out of my mind and through my fingers.
Fair warning......no offense meant and none will be taken.

The word "attachment" is used a lot in parenting magazines and often comes up in discussions among parents. Of course, all of us have some notion of what the parent-child attachment is all about, but in child psychology theory and research "attachment" has a very specific meaning. In fact, a whole line of research has developed focused solely on attachment theory. So I thought I'd offer a little background on what psychologist mean when they discuss attachment.
The academic… Continue

As I was setting up the changing table last night, I took the Pampers diapers and started entering in all the codes I had. Even though it takes at least 400 points to buy anything, a pamper saved is a pamper earned! (That sounded less lame in my head)
Today I found a couple of codes for free Gifts to… Continue

This Winter season has been unusually cold and has caused many at home or snow days with the children. When you are parents of multiples, it can seem like a very long day that never ends--basically GroundHog Day on repeat. The first day seems wonderful--snuggling underneath the blankets and watching a favorite family movie. By the third day, you are totally sick of the hearing the Elmo's World theme song and you really don't care if the kids have drawn on all the walls in the house with… Continue

How do you breastfeed multiples? Which formula should I use on my preemie twins? I want my multiples to have play dates, (other than each other), but I don't know where to take them? None of my other mom friends have multiples or understand what I'm going through? All of these questions and much more can be answered by joining a local multiples club.
Multiples club are a valuable resource and wealth of knowledge for parents of… Continue

Bilingual culture is a part of everyday society, including in the world of children. The proved benefits of children speaking dual languages have been reflected in schools and the media. From dual language immersion programs in elementary schools to television shows that portray bilingual children, such as Disney's Spanish Handy Manny or Nickelodeon's Chinese Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, teaching another language to a child has become highly recommended.
Most families of multiples have an… Continue

I’ve always liked the month of February: my birthday falls on the 8th day of the month, it’s short- bringing us a tad closer to springtime, then there’s the celebration of the Hallmark holiday Valentine’s Day (although I’ve never been much of a heart person). Today, I like February even more because we get to introduce you to Karyn Parsons in celebration of “Black History Month.” What we love about Karyn (a.k.a. Hilary Banks from Fresh Prince of Bel Air) is that she reminds us that we must… Continue

In the winter when the cold weather blows in, you might find it hard to motivate yourself to get out of bed or even leave the house. Shorter winter days also mean less sunlight every day and sunlight helps us feel wide-awake. You might be experiencing a winter slump and a drop-off in energy levels like many other people. And when lacking in energy, many people look towards food for an extra boost. Make sure you’re choosing the right foods year-round and follow these tips for beating your winter… Continue

I have to get this off my chest, my two cents about why I understand the whole point behind claiming product reviews, but why I think it’s going to cause an issue when it comes to claiming them as “income“. As a blogger we are required to claim the products we receive for free as income because reality is the product is our payment to write a post sharing our honest opinion about the product.
I get it, the IRS wants to get their part in the tax area, totally understand that. The big… Continue

Once our daughter's high school play finished up in the fall, she tried unsuccessfully to get a job. You'd think retail shops would've at least been hiring temporary help in preparation for the holiday season. But, no.
So we decided that instead of looking for a job, her new job would be applying for college scholarships. Ideally, she's devoting around 10 hours a week—the same hours an outside-the-home part-time job would require—applying for scholarships.
Initially we… Continue

Parenting is a role that requires us to learn to be flexible in our thinking and creative in our actions. Wanting to be right all the time implies that we are rigid and reactive and probably fearful. This can be a typical stress response when we are under pressure, but you have to admit, not a very productive one.
How do you know when you are "stuck?" Remember the old saying, "Insanity is repeating the same action over and over again… Continue
