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

From “Screamfree Parenting” by Hal Runkel
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. Usually, it is best to use it at bed time and you just need to gently massage… Continue

One year ago today, my little miracle landed in my life.
Literally, landed. After hours of back labor and doctor drama (a story in itself), Jayden Eli surprised everyone by arriving in a rush and landing on the hospital floor. The nurse had just enough time to put her hand under his head, but the rest of him met the ground with an audible splat. How was it the doctor put on the chart? Oh yes, “arrived precipitously on the hospital floor.” He was immediately nicknamed Crash.…

I suppose this is it. We are coming to that time when things change, when my baby is no longer a baby. When my baby is now going to have a life outside our family.
He is going to do things I won't know about.
He will have friends I won't really know.
He will say things I won't hear or do things I am not going to witness.
He will sometime be told off by someone else and praised and cuddled by someone else.
He will be hugged by a stranger… Continue

I love working with MomSelect because they give me the opportunity to review and giveaway some pretty cool products!!! This time I had the option to review the entire Zhu Zhu Pets Playset! What a neat concept!
Zhu Zhu Pets are the next best thing (if not the best) to giving your child a cuddly hamster to play with. All the fun without the mess!
The best way to explain Zhu Zhu Pets is that its a fun, interactive hamsters that talk, move and even navigate their way around… Continue

I know the time flies by, but the milestones still catch me off guard. How is it that Munch is now off to preschool on her own? It was difficult for me just because I felt torn between being there to drop her off and leaving my kindergartners with a substitute for the second time this week. In the end, I knew she'd be fine with AudioDad, so long as he took lots of pictures! I… Continue

To all of you out there wearing your gold ribbons and spreading the word of how desperately we are in need of research and funding and research and more funding so children don’t have to fight and suffer and die from a disease that every adult is afraid of … thank you! I sincerely appreciate it and am touched by your caring.
Now I hate to say it, but I am so tired. I am so tired of thinking about it, reading about it, screaming about it, crying about it and not getting anyone outside… Continue

Decluttering is the most liberating feeling one can have. Yesterday I decided to tukle my daughter's room. She had so many toys that she didn,t even have a chance to see them because there were too many things. Every time I went into her room, I came across the same mountain of toys. So yesterday, I told myself, no matter what else I have to do, I am putting order in this room and I did. Before starting, I planned to do only a small part, but after seeing that it goes faster than I expected, I… Continue

This is my first blog here in mombloggersclub. And I'm not really sure what to share with you guys. I am happy that even though I have my own family with, the bond with my parents and siblings didn't end. Last week my father had a accident and we get him to the hospital, he had a hemorage in this brain, and we have to get him under operation. I was so worried and I am the one who watch on him every night, I am a Dad's girl, when we talked about daddys I always remember how he is so strong and… Continue

This really doesn't have to be long. Normally I leave my thoughts on subjects like this to the office water cooler. That's my time to talk about the antics of celebrities and politicians. But in this case I just wanted to say something brief about Kanye West.
No excuses what he did was stupid and if it were me after I got over the shock,I probably would of (in my earthly moment) cursed him up one side and down the other. Definitely not what Jesus would do. But that just shows that we… Continue

Scenario 1: You know when you’re writing one of those put-that-insulting-woman-in-her-place letters that you only intend for the recipient to be your drafts folder? You’re writing it for therapeutic reasons, really, as you know you would never have the nerve to actually stand up for yourself and hit “send”. Certainly, if you did, you would do it with dignity, not sprinkle it with the F word as liberally as movie theatres salt their popcorn to bring you to near death by dehydration so you have… Continue
