My kids vacillate between laughing at my “jelly belly”, “jelly butt”, “flappy arms” and my "baggy eyes". Then they start asking me if I am going to die (eyes brimming with tears, mind you). Yes, even my kids can see, I am getting old-er.
My husband and I were driving home two days ago, trying to remember how old we actually are. Being together since we were teenagers, and actually having to do MATH to figure out our differences in age (he is younger…oh yeah baby!) we realized we had… Continue

Anyone who knows me or has read more than two of these blogs knows I am a tad bit O.C. I get stuck on something and I just can not stop.
My latest obsession is the gender of my unborn child. This is a recent obsession that I blame on my doctor. I was okay when I thought that I would not find out the gender , until sometime around the hubby's birthday. However, on my last visit she asked me if I want to know the gender next go round. For some reason this sent my into a tail… Continue

I am still in shock mode that Tuesday died. I know that God has a reason for her passing, but I don't know yet what it is. This little babe touched so so so many lives. And everyday I am seeing just how many. There are new blog entries, fundraising efforts for the family, and just moral support thrown out there everyday. I think she is on my mind more so today due to the fact that it is Tuesday. I want to figure something out to do yearly to remember Tuesday. Maybe collecting stuffed animals… Continue

The internet is one of the only places in the world where you can get paid for taking a picture of your lunch. Remember this photo that I took of a YUMMY fluffernutter sandwich I made for my girls?
Well I had a copy of the photo saved on my flickr page and it was spotted by Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture magazine. They are… Continue

This is a true story. The story about 2 young moms who developed an (organic) product so successful that the company went straight to the top 5 in the Forbes ‘Boost Your Business’ competition in 2008.
‘Now is the time for global citizens to start preserving our natural resources. By using organic and sustainable materials, we continue to do our part and help heal the Earth. Even the smallest efforts can make a difference’. (Honeywear.net)
Honeywear has been… Continue

My parents were supposed to go away this week to a spa and resort in San Diego. My dad was going to be taking a class for work and mom was going along to enjoy a break from winter!
Unfortunately because of the bad economy and some stress at work, the trip was canceled! Bummer!! So the boys and I consoled Stregga by spending the day with her. And we kept her busy folding basket after basket of laundry!!
I don't know if it's because we have twins or if there is magic happening,… Continue

“We better hope that the tooth fairy comes to Matthew and Seth’s house tonight and puts some new teeth back into Seth’s mouth, right Mommy?” Owen mumbled, glancing up at me, his mouth full of Cheerios. Milk was dripping towards his chin.
The buzz of my every morning halted—I froze mid-way through buttering waffles, pouring orange juice, and packing lunch. I focused on the spot of milk that was caught in the dimple in Owen’s chin, as I said in slow motion, “Yes, I guess so,… Continue

As I'm organizing my office, scheduling the week and I am packaging a donation to an event (child's size satin head wrap for cancer patients) ... it hit me. I received a twitter this morning to help donate to a cancer event. This is a part of my new business plan, but I would like to challenge every one to give of themselves every Monday. It can be a charitable donation to your favorite charity, a phone call to a long lost friend, someone who lost their job, or time at your place of… Continue

One of the main reasons single moms seek a flexible or alternative work schedule (also called variable work hours) is so they can have more freedom, flexibility, and time with their children. They want a lifestyle with less restrictions and more free time. Alternative and flexible work arrangements are ways to structure work in other than the traditional… Continue

Besides enjoying my kids' antics outside, this weekend I was also thinking about blogging. I am a very purposeful person. I wrote about my blogging intentions here.
But, I don't think I've ever explained my title. Why do I describe this blog by calling it "Health Begins With Mom?"
Have you ever considered what an influential position we are in as nurturers of our family? Even though some men… Continue

I recently found this fun online calculator
that kids and parents will love to use. There are a lot of calculators you can use for a lot of things, but I think the age calculator is fun and cool.
Click in, fill in your day, month, and year of your birthday and the current time. It comes back with your age, but that's not all. It also tell you how long you have been living for in months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds, and… Continue

As Valentine's day rapidly approaches, I thought I would share one of my mommy seduction secrets/cheap-decorating tricks with all of you. Back in September when I first started my blogging adventure, I wrote a post called Come On Baby Light My Fake Fire
. It got exactly one comment at the time. This was when I had about 5 people (three of them being my husband and both of my parents) reading my… Continue

My back is killing me right now, but I won’t be getting a massage. No, I’ve been down that road and it wasn’t pretty. Each time, I thought the next massage would be different, as in “relaxing” or “peaceful.” But these massage therapists specialized in a form of therapy that could be quite useful in the prison system as a crime deterrent.
My first massage was with Halfrida, a very large German woman who seemed to have an abundance of pent-up rage. (I was very “alfraida” of her.) She… Continue
