This is my first giveaway!
I am giving away a Burp Armor burping cloth (see picture). These cute, absorbent, practical burp cloths come in all kinds of fun designs, but most of all they promise that you don’t get soaked anymore when you are burping your little one! It is made out of organic cotton and hemp, and I love the fact that a dad designed it!
How can you win? Leave me a comment concerning this post on… Continue

Q: What makes an essential oil therapeutic?
It is the chemistry
of an essential oil that gives it the therapeutic properties.
Essential oils contain hundreds of different chemical compounds, which in combination, lend important therapeutic properties to the oil.
Although chemists have successfully recreated the main constituents and fragrances of some essential oils in the laboratory, these… Continue

I just came back from “Mom’s’ Night Out – Women Who Make a Difference,” an event organized by Beth Feldman from rolemommy.com. It was wonderfully inspiring to hear Lee Woodruff talk about her journey after her husband Bob suffered a brain injury in Iraq, Alison Tepper Singer’s advocacy for autism that grew out of her daughter being diagnoses as autistic, and Lauren Candela-Katz’s involvement in fundraising. All of them, including Beth, stressed that they are doing what they are passionate… Continue

In case you get the urge to make this Trinidadian candy, I'm here for you, Man. Just---have a really, uber-strong and enormous spoon handy for stirring and make sure your sweet tooth is in gear. You might want to lift weights, upper body only. And don't use an electric stove. In fact, you might think about never making Toolum and run screaming from the challenge. Unless you have a spinning machine, then you're fine.

So, Anthony relapsed. I was quite concerned because he was worse today then he was all week so I tried to get him into the peds. No go, so off to Urgent Care we go. They get us right in and are super concerned because of how hot and lethargic he is... The swab him for Strep, RSV, and Flu.
Guess what Anthony has strep AND flu b (I never knew there was a flu a. I wonder if there is a flu c) I told the doc that Madison woke up in a pile of vomit and has been running a fever today, so he… Continue

It's quiet in the house today. No one is screaming, crying, fighting, running. I haven't changed countless poop diapers. No one has left handprints on the TV, mushed cookies into the carpet, or spilled mac and cheese all over the kitchen floor. No one has demanded "SNACKY," "Water" or "Potty Time, HURRY!!" I have not watched one episode of Mickey's Clubhouse or Einsteins. The curtains have not been ripped down, the blinds have not been bent, and toys have not been "dumped." And not one person… Continue

Panic Disorder affects more than 2.4 million Americans. Striking twice as many women as men, Panic Disorder is characterized by unexpected and repeated sensations of extreme fear accompanied by chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, numbness and tingling, dizziness or stomach upset.
Mimicking symptoms of heart or respiratory distress, Panic Disorder is often misdiagnosed or undiagnosed
. This failure leads… Continue

Nothing is wrong with my real family. Got a mom and dad -- decent, loving, caring people. But once I came out as gay, things changed, and now that I have a child of my own, whom I am raising with my partner and the baby’s father, a gay man, I have found another family that I didn’t even know I needed.
I am one of the lucky ones whose folks at least somewhat accept me as gay; but still, it is a reality that no matter what, my family and life will never be as I envisioned it growing… Continue

Every child deserves to have a good book read to her. Reading aloud is one of the most important activities you as a parent, grandparent, sibling, or caregiver can do together. No matter what your values are, reading can help communicate via illustrations and stories. Those “green” parents who want to share their eco-values with their offspring can do so by reading or supplying books about the environment. Here are some of my favorites:
· The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss is my… Continue

Three incidents involving ineffective generic drugs recently occurred in my life.
After taking Zoloft for years I switched, without problem, to the generic Sertraline carried by my local pharmacy. Then, in an effort to economize, I ordered my prescription through a popular mail-delivery system which sent Sertraline manufactured by yet another company. Within a month my depression returned and I knew the… Continue

The other day we took Birdie and Bubba with us to the Y so that Howie and I could attend a circuit training class. We dropped them off at an evening program that they offer for kids five and over.
There was just one hitch: Bubba is only 4.
I knew he would be fine. He listens to directions, he doesn't hit or use bad language, he cleans up after himself and since he's nearly six feet tall, nobody would question his age. Plus, I knew that he would follow their rules to the T… Continue
