Sometimes, something may seem blatantly obvious to some of us while others are oblivious.
Case in point; violent video games.
Folks, there is a reason why there is a rating on video games. It is because for some reason, usually violence, the video game is not well suited for certain age groups. But, there are still parents who will wait in line or get on the pre-order lists for these games in an effort to make sure that their kid remains on the 'cool list'.

I continue to be moved by the historical events that took place yesterday.
America’s 1st African American President. I was elated when he won and like so many Americans I cried for his victory.
I continue to think about the possibilities for America and for it’s youth.
As a child I can recall so many times when I experienced prejudice as a Spanish/Puerto Rican American.
I know what it is like to be prejudged based on nationality rather than my… Continue

I just want to take a moment to thank all of the wonderful people that I came in contact with today that took the time to tell me that the belt from my long sweater was twisted inside my thong and that part of my left butt cheek was exposed.
First of all, some of you (especially my mom and sister) may be shocked to learn that I, a 41-year-old mother of three, wear a thong. I have struggled with panty lines my entire life--they are the bane of my very existence! I cannot stand the… Continue

Like many of the moms who belong to the Mom Bloggers Club, I maintain a separate blog elsewhere.
My blog,http:// iamharriet.blogspot.com
is my opportunity to learn how to express myself via writing. My main reason for writing in this blog is to learn how to express myself as a writer as opposed to blogging with a specific purpose such as a hobby.
I was pleasantly surprised this morning to learn that my blog is a featured blog in a… Continue

Okay, so other than election stuff and the regular work stuff, is anything exciting going on with you today?
Mary has the day off of school today. The school calendar says it's a 'teacher resource day', but I think it's to make it easier for all the teachers and school staff to go vote. That's cool. I don't have a problem with that. I do feel bad for the parents who have to arrange care for their kids while they're out of school. Kind… Continue

I just read a news story that was self described ad "groundbreaking".
According to the AP,
"research suggests that pregnancy rates are much higher among teens who watch a lot of TV with sexual dialogue and behavior than among those who have tamer viewing tastes.
According to the study, teens who watched the raciest shows were… Continue

Many of my readers already know that each month I select a charity or foundation that I create a necklace for and donate a portion of proceeds to the group for each sale. The donations do not stop at the end of the month but continue through out the year. The main reason I do this is to raise awareness and also raise funds for these groups.
The featured group for… Continue

I started a blog at www.victorialauring.blogspot.com. I wanted to see if any experienced mommy bloggers can give me the snap shot of how to get the traffic going to the blog and get companies to have me review their product. Hoping to eventually generate a little income on the side. I have written articles for local and national trade publications so that is the easy part. I have also been in the maternity and baby industry as both a etailer, boutique owner, buyer and designer of a product… Continue

The problem with the rural, rural area I live is not enough nice toy stores, you know besides cheap plastic things from Walmart.
So I have found some really great natural, creative, innovative toy and book shops online. They have great stuff!
And I listed them on the undertheBIGbluesky blog today.

Well, my rant from the other day has come to a happy resolution.
Before I go any further....I must clarify. I did not intend to paint my amazing, handsome, incredible, smart, dashing, sophisticated, loving, caring, considerate, awesome, dapper.....(KISS!KISS!) husband in a poor light. He truly is amazing and went the extra mile to help our daughter recover her losses. After the emotional dust of me going into fighting mode for my daughter, we calmly discussed many options about how… Continue
