My youngest son will be graduating from High School this year and I'm worried. I don't think he has a clue about his future. This is a kid I have had to push all thru school just to graduate. How will he make it thru college? He loves computers and wants to make it a career but I don't think a four year degree is something he can pull off. He has ADHD. That's not an excuse, its a fact. When he is focused on something he likes doing, he can pull of straight A's without a problem. However, when… Continue

I married my high school sweetheart when I was 19 and he was 20. We could hardly wait to start our family, so 1 1/2 years after we wed, our first son was born. I thought if I had my children while I was young, I would still be pretty young when my grandchildren arrived. Through the years, I have often wondered at the wisdom (or lack of wisdom) of this kind of thinking, as most young people have very little experience in raising children, or in life in general. I certainly didn't have much...in… Continue

This morning, Cenzo woke up and went into the bathroom for "potty time." I got him all set up and then went to his room to get him clean underwear. Well, he was bellowing for me so I hurried back thinking he was done. No, the Boss just wanted me to "stay me Mommy." This is nothing unusual as he always requests this and I sit on the small stool in the bathroom and cheer him on as he does his "business." Well today, Cenzo decided he didn't want me to sit on the stool. He said "No sit there! Mommy… Continue

1. Place hooks, shelves and other put things away spaces at eye level so your kids can easily reach them
2. Clean with your child a few times. This allows your child to learn from you what you expect “clean” to look like.
3. Make a chore chart with rewards that are meaningful to your child. And remember that stickers may be meaningful for younger kids but won’t cut the mustard with older kids. Be flexible as kids grow.
4. Limit the number of stuffed animals your child is allowed… Continue

Solar energy is hot—literally. Today, increasingly more people are becoming fascinated by the savings renewable energy can offer. And savings is a hopeful word in today’s economic turmoil. So, what is solar energy exactly? Wikipedia puts it simply, “Solar Energy is the radiant light and heat from the Sun that has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range of ever-evolving technologies. Solar radiation along with secondary solar resources such as wind and wave power,… Continue

What NOT to do while waiting in the car circle at school.
Picture it, I am in line waiting to move every inch or two by the minute. To ease my troubled 3 year old, I say "Oh Hey! Guess who is behind us? Your friend Oliva and her mommy is in the car behind us!"
- My little Sophia is strapped tightly in her car seat and immediately RAGES into pure excitement and tries to contort her tiny body to get out of the restrainsts to see her friend car behind us.

Headaches can be due to hormone imbalances, shortage of oxygen, sinus pressure, stress, muscle tension/injury, sugar imbalance (hypoglycemia) or colon/liver congestion. Other triggers for migraines can be monosodium glutamate and other food preservatives, synthetic fragrances, and environmental allergic reactions.
Essential oils boost the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood and oxygen infusion into the cell. They can also soothe inflammation which can reduce… Continue

It's hard to come up with a blog name and I played around with lots of titles before it struck me... I'm always on the move - always. I drag my kids all over the place. We rarely spend a day just at home - there's always a fun adventure somewhere. I workout at the Y five days a week. I volunteer at school, in girl scouts, at church. And not a day goes by where you won't hear me hollering to the little ones: Let's go - quick like a bunny!
So there you have it -… Continue

When shopping online you should either be shopping through a cash back site or through your frequent flyer miles provider site. No need spending more than you have to right?
So what happens when you use a cash back site is: you go to the cash back site and click on the store you want to shop at (it usually tells you the % back you get prior) then you shop like normal when you check out you will pay full price. However, within a couple of days you will get a email letting you know… Continue
