One of the most phenomenal stories regarding babies that I ever heard was reported on CNN in May 2005 and in the May 30, 2005 edition of Jet Magazine.
“A newborn baby abandoned in a Kenyan forest was saved by a stray dog who apparently carried her across a busy road and through a barbed wire fence to a shed where the infant was discovered nestled with a litter of puppies.” CBS News covered this story as well.
This baby girl was dressed… Continue

I love my local dollar stores. It’s one of my favorite places to shop when I want to reward my sons inexpensively and have fun in the process. My husband often calls me the “queen of the deals” because saving money always gives me an adrenaline rush. So imagine the rush I felt when I discovered that dollar stores now sell pregnancy tests and are giving name-brand competitors a run for their money.
According to the August issue of Ob.Gyn. News… Continue

I would love to win an HP Mini 110. This computer would simplify the busy life I lead with 3 kids in tow and a super busy husband. I could sit in the comfort of my bed after the children are fast asleep blogging, paying bills, twittering, facebooking, working (unfortunately I do that at home sometimes :0 ) or just playing mindless games like crossword puzzles or word games with my husband. It would also help… Continue

It's amazing how a three year old can bring you to tears. Since post holiday cleanup is done I decided to take Ryan out of the house because we both needed it. It's too cold to go play outside so I was going to take him to the library (they have an awesome kids library where I live), go get breakfast, and then go to one of the indoor play areas.
We get to the library and great. It's closed due to maintenance. Ryan is in the back seat crying and throwing a fit because I tell him that… Continue

Around our house, we have great fun celebrating Christmas. This year was also fantastic, with one exception. Nagging at me all day was how baby boy was breathing. Not good.
At 7:30pm I couldn’t take it anymore and made the trip down to the hospital. Before getting admitted, they put us in the trauma room to get him on some oxygen and begin other treatments.
I was sitting there holding a ventolin mask over his screaming face, telling myself that the situation sucked. I was… Continue

Munch and I had "R Day" a couple of weeks back...or is it a couple of MONTHS now? We did the usual routine of making the letter with wood pieces and practicing writing it, but the fun part was making the rainbow cookies. The cookies themselves tasted just okay and I might tweak the dough in the future, but the best part was how sturdy it was and its texture lent itself… Continue

After over 3 years of managing Munch's hair perfectly well (it was so easy for me to cut and style it), I'm having to learn all over again. Her hair texture has totally changed since the beginning of summer. I actually find looking back at her photos quite interesting. Her looks change drastically enough from year to year to wonder if it's the same kid, or possibly a sibling. Munch was born with a fairly full head of hair, but it took a while for it to do anything, especially grow. As a result,… Continue

As I've mentioned before, our introduction to the preschool birthday party scene has been quite interesting. AudioDad and I had discussions about accepting all the invitations that came in- especially when Munch claimed to not know the celebrant, parent etiquette- would we be perceived as "hovering" parents if we both accompanied Munch? (With the 45 min. drive each way, he didn't want to lose family time.) I'm making weekly trips to the local toy store. We've seen a wide range of parties, from… Continue

Hello everyone! I cannot believe it's been over a month and a half since I've posted last. We've been on the move most weekends with Munch's busy birthday party schedule and although I've taken plenty of pictures, I've had a dilemma about posting pics of her pals on the blog. As a result, I got out of the habit of frequently posting while I tried to figure out what to do (and ended up with a backlog of post topics!) So, look for more posting this week while I try to catch up! And please forgive… Continue

It's been a wonderful Christmas break. Sometimes you don't realize how the hustle and bustle of the work week slowly beats you down until you have some time to sit down and relax and then you realize, "Oh, I forgot what this felt like!"
While we don't have any stories to tell from our break, I did realize a few things:
My husband is very into… Continue

After Christmas holiday season, future shopping is the last thing you want to think about. Still, December and January are prime times to plan out your shopping for the year. Planning can make the difference between making good use of the sales coming up on one hand or overspending and passing up bargains on the other. If you can't think about shopping now,… Continue

Hi everyone! My son just made this video about a girl he is in love with! He has always been so shy! But his gift is filmmaking! So the only way for him to express his feelings for the girl was to make this film! I think it is the most romantic way to get a girl's attention that I've ever seen in my whole life!! What do you think?? You have to see it to believe it!

I am the first one to say parenting is serious business. After all, I’m not only a mother and a grandmother, my work as an author is based on parenting as well. And like most parents, I focus on how and what my children learn, especially during their formative years. The formative years are the most important years in terms of the characteristics and traits they obtain and carry into their adult lives.
Parents place an enormous amount of energy on their children’s academic education,… Continue
