How Can I Be the Parent of a Legal Adult?

Well, it's January 7th and as those who celebrated Epiphany yesterday can attest, the Christmas season is officially over. Sigh.

I cannot believe our baby girl turned 18 years old over the Christmas holiday. Actually on Christmas. If you haven't heard me mention this before, yes, our oldest daughter was born on Christmas Day.

Of course, she was born nine, long days past her due date. And I kept hoping and praying she would arrive… Continue

Homemade Facial-Banana Oatmeal

Here's what I did-

First I took some oatmeal and ground it up until it was very fine in my food processor.

(Here is a comparison of the oats before and after grinding)

Then I mashed with a fork, 1 very ripe banana.

TIP When you have very ripe bananas at home that you won't be eating throw them in the freezer (do not peel). To make banana bread thaw them out on a plate then squeeze out of the peel!

Now… Continue

Are You Ready

Nothing is more frustrating than to see the perfect opportunity come along and not be able to seize it. That opportunity will surely come, so get ready and be ready.

Instead of looking for opportunity, work for it. Make the effort to be the person who has what it takes to make the most of the opportunity you seek.

Don't merely wish for opportunity. For if that's all you do, you won't even recognize opportunity when it is right in front of you.

Consider what… Continue

Why do we make resolutions any way?

Oh my word, its 2010! Where did the time go? Weren’t we worrying about Y2K and all that crap like 2 years ago? Is it really a new decade? Did I really lose the last eight years? I am so blaming the kids – every since I had these little guys, I can’t remember shit, but losing eight years? That’s bad very bad.

What's an IAB creative standard ?

Learning about online advertising standards is important for any blogger or website publisher hoping to earn revenue through advertising. Just as print advertising publishers have standard ad sizes and requirements, the same applies to online advertising.

Online advertising is not new, though the idea of blogs is relatively new, website publishers have been selling ad space long before the days of WordPress.

Account managers have tracked and monitored ads and… Continue

Tea Party

I was recently inspired by my friend J. ( from In the Gutter) who wrote a blog post titled "A Penny Saved... is a Missed Opportunity" that begins with the sentence "What are you saving your China for?". It is a good post and you all should head on over and read it. She has… Continue

How will todays's electronic crazed kids turn out?

I have not seen the movie AVATAR in 3-D, but a thought suddenly occured to me: How would a child from some remote African village, one who has never seen a movie react to wearing special glasses and watching AVATAR in 3-D? Would they think the characters were real? Would they run out of the movie theatre screaming? Or would they simply get hooked like most teenagers since the movie surpassed the $1 billion mark.

What are your thoughts on that?

My father lived in Nigeria… Continue

Really Missing the Farmers Market

Photo: "Healthy Food" by Spin Diva

I suddenly came to the realization that eating organic, market-fresh, good for me fruits and vegetables was going to be nearly impossible here in GiTMO and I am disappointed because this is, after all, a tropical island where things are supposed to grow abundantly year round. So yes, my expectations were a little on the high side. In the Dominican Republic, where I was born, we had just about… Continue

Homemade beauty treatment-peppermint foot soak

(Part of 15 homemade beauty treatments in 15 days)

What I did

I purchased some cheap peppermint tea(clearance bin @ grocery store for $1). I brewed a really strong tea using about 4 cups of hot water and 6 tea bags.

I then soaked my feet for 10 minutes in the tea (make sure it's not too hot). Since I have dry skin I added a few drops of baby oil to the peppermint bath.

When my 10 minutes was up I dried off and took the foot… Continue

New Year's Intentions

Wow, a New Year and a New Decade!!! What an exciting time. It's hard to believe that I am near the end of the first work week of the new year. This week I spent time going back through my calendar. I used this time to help me reflect and think about 2009. There were aspects of 2009 that brought joy, sorrow, frustration, happiness, etc.

After reflecting on the past year I became excited with the possibilities of 2010. I am ready to let go of 2009… Continue

Every Wave Always Comes to Shore

My body is angry. It is resisting, pushing, shrinking back, lashing out. Angry. I guess I am too. At my body.

I know, I need to be gentle with myself. I need to accept, like my word of the year. It is hard to accept a body that fights you even when you sleep.

I am 38 weeks pregnant. My body is completely hijacked right now nurturing, growing, developing a human that needs everything I have to give to it. And so I do. I give my body everything it needs. I can't wait to see the… Continue

But enough about me. I about laffed myself silly at…

2010:The Year of the Awakened Parent

If asked if you are you an “awakened” parent you would probably pause to consider what that actually means. What constitutes being an awakened parent? Many equate the term “awakened” with “eyes wide-opened” or being “aware”. In terms of parenting, to be awakened means to be conscious of what your role as a parent consists of…examining your role, determining if it is working to produce the results you intend, and finally, making necessary changes to achieve those goals.

Parenting is… Continue
