Standing in line at the bank today, I got asked the question I have come to dread: "So, is he walking yet?"After responding with the same defensive "No--but he's really close!" that I have been saying for over two months now, she launches into this big story about how her niece is only nine months old and already walking. She says it like she just composed her first symphony or something. "That's nice," I tell her. What I'm thinking is, "I bet she's an ugly baby."
My son is smart,… Continue

I have been reading a book about shepherding the child's heart and I've been learning great insights from this book.
Parents like me have to look at what is in the heart of the child in every opportunity. It is what's inside of the heart that matters are dealt. Sometimes the issues we face as parents towards are children are just the surface of what is really happening inside of them.
The author mentioned about how we can deal with our child in terms of disciplining. Whenever we… Continue

I would like to share with you insights of what I am learning nowadays. I've been reading two books simultaneously and I've been in SOM class. These media has been revolutionizing my life gradually. These are the things that I've learned:
1. We are called not just as born again Xians, we are called to transform our nation wherever we are into right now.
2. We are transformers of nations because God chose us. We are able to do things and commit to doing it because Jesus redeemed… Continue

A home based business is work work work. It is up to you to research and learn about your business. Never join an opportunity if you feel that it is a scam or pyramid scheme. A pyramid scheme is one where you pay money and don't receive a product or service. Due diligence is required before joining any business opportunity. However, don't criticize a company or home based business based on just opinions that are not based on concrete facts.
Many travel home based businesses will… Continue

In my humble (somewhat biased opinion), there isn’t anything cuter than a signing baby. Especially when that baby is mine.
This morning, I woke up to baby kisses and J’s sweet voice saying “Mama, mama, maaaaa.” I open my eyes and he immediately signs “diaper” at me with this huge grin like he’s just accomplished something major (which, I found out, he had). Diaper changed, teeth brushed, we sit down to breakfast, but J isn’t eating. He keeps signing all done at me (while yelling “all… Continue

My nine-year old asked, "Mom, do you think I can play in the NFL one day?" A huge smile came across my face because you have to know that my son is only 65 pounds, wet. "You can do anything you put your mind to. Dream big," I told him. I too loved sports as a kid, softball being my forte. And while I still continue to play the sport in a local women's town league, I am no Kim Clijsters. Terry my biz partner, having played tennis as a child, had a much better shot at mastering the game of tennis… Continue

I am wondering how many parents are like me in their inability to keep up to date on political issues. It is frustrating to say the least, to not have the time to listen to the news or to read the newspapers and whenever I do get the chance to get better informed I usually wind up either in tears and angry from reality or completely confused.
Listening to educated people is my alternative and I try to listen to all sides so that I can make my own opinions. One of the most important… Continue

Other than sheer laziness, I have some good reasons why ironing is pointless.
#2-- Excess fat rolls. My shirt is going to get sucked in-between my love handles like a black hole folding in on itself. It’s going to get wrinkled beyond repair anyway--so why bother?
Looking to cut corners? Me too. Cut the cord. To your iron, that is :)
You'll feel a sense of freedom. *Cue the Hallelujah… Continue

Never promise more than you can perform. “
— Publilius Syrus
Simple, right? If you promise little Timmy kid Disneyworld, you take him to Disneyworld. He sees that you can be trusted and all is well. The trick is to have this attitude in ALL promises, not just the pleasant ones.
Remember, empty threats are really broken promises. And just because they aren’t as fun to… Continue

Simple Homemade Beauty Products You Can Make At Home
Coconut Oil For Wrinkles:
Coconut oil is a very healing type of oil and it can be used in homemade wrinkle creams or by itself. If you choose to just use it by itself, which many people do, then you’ll just need to apply the oil to the affected skin where you have wrinkles.
