Saturday night I was laying in bed trying to figure out why I couldn’t sleep, what was keeping me awake and it sure wasn’t because I wasn’t tired. All week it’s been a weird feeling, like I’m waiting on something…a thing I should know but can’t quite put my finger on. Wrestling with my pillow Sat night, it was a did-i-leave-the-stove-on-is-the-door-locked-what-the-heck-is-wrong! kind of feeling.
Then it hit me.
It’s July 13th.
We mark so many monumental days… Continue

I wanted to write a blog post to let all the ladies here know what I am all about. My #1 passion is ministry and telling others about Jesus. I do this through my ministry to girls and their moms, Beauty by Design Ministries
. It's my first priority after my husband and family.
Next, I am a writer and I have a writing business though I am moving into just "managing this" with a team of talented writers. This is exciting to me. I am looking… Continue

When I was pregnant with Nathaniel I was two weeks overdue and had convinced myself that there was a good chance that I would be pregnant FOREVER. Perhaps I’d incubated the one baby that would be perfectly content to stay in my uterus and could only be pried out with the words, “It’s time to leave for college, you little freeloader!”
During that last two weeks I had a lot of VERY strange dreams. There was the one where I was trying to get in an elevator and my belly didn’t fit (and… Continue

It has been a rather roller coaster month for me.
My younger boy has just started playgroup classes and is adapting fine to the changes. I'm very proud of him. After two weeks in school he doesn't cry now when we drop him of and pick him up. He is also socialising well with the teachers and fellow classmates.
The best thing is that he is eating much more and less fussy about what we feed him :) It is great as it has been a real torture each mealtime to get him to finish his… Continue

MYTH # 10:
Teenagers don’t become clinically depressed. They’re moody because of surging hormones.
It’s true that bouts of sadness are common in teens, but sadness and it’s accompanying feelings and moods pass quickly. If it lingers for more than a couple of weeks, a closer look is warranted.
Signs of true, or clinical, depression include:
Frequent or out of the ordinary crying or tearfulness.
Excessive sense of guilt or unworthiness.
A loss… Continue

Wednesday night I went to the Premiere of the Closer(avail on TNT) in Manhattan at the bar Ultra. I was so close to not going for a few reasons. At the last minute I was able to get a babysitter and meet my DH in Manhattan.
FYI - I love living so close to the city that I can just JET in if I choose to. Ideally, I think you all know by now I am a Manhattanite deep in my heart and would L-O-V-E to live in some gorgeous townhouse on the Upper West side, Greenwich Village, or… Continue

The Coupon Fairy has amassed another large collection of clipped coupons from the Sunday newspapers. This set is so large that it will be split in two and each set will have at least 100 coupons. Now, many of these coupons expire at the end of the month so the Coupon Fairy wants to mail these out A.S.A.P.! She enjoys helping others save money and asks that you also pass on the coupons that you will not use. Just go to:… Continue

Sparked by a recent conversation with my friend Hillary
, I have decided I need to post my thoughts about a certain series of novels written by Stephenie Meyer. Particularly the relationship between one, Bella, and the object of her affection. The supposedly uber hot vampire, Edward.
Believe me when I say Edward has been well cast in the movie which is scheduled for release in December of this year. I thought Robert Pattinson was exceedingly… Continue

If you’re a mom, you have more than likely heard the above statement.
And as a mom you’ve made a choice, to either breastfeed/ebf or formula feed. Now granted, I believe breastmilk is the best food for baby. It’s how God engineered feeding to be. He created boobs, not formula, BUT
I don’t believe this makes formula a wrong choice.
I entered the mothering world thinking that there was a right choice and a wrong choice in feeding. But that’s just not how it is. Formula… Continue

“Go and play your video game,” says Nice Mama to her sons. “I’m going to clean your room for you today.”
“Oh cool! Thanks,” says one son, giving mama a hug, “You’re a nice Mama.”
What he doesn’t realize is that Nice Mama, is really, Mama with Ulterior Motive, in disguise. She smiles as she sends them on their merry way, 13 gallon trash bag clenched in the fist behind her back. She walks backwards down the hall, into their bedroom and bolts the… Continue

The Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of Mommy Brain announced its latest guidelines just yesterday, stating that “Not all Mommy Brain, is the same.”
This is only the first of hopefully many steps that will be taken to help treat Mommy Brain, which was officially diagnosed last Monday. But mothers have felt the symptoms and their families have experienced the effects of Mommy Brain for centuries.
“I knew something was different… Continue

I walked into the room with my chin tilted down trying to steal an inconspicuous glance at my stomach. Sucked in? Check. The room was abuzz with chatter, broken momentarily by smiles and greetings directed at me. I gave my cautious, tight lipped half smile in return and quickly found a seat in the emptiest corner of the room. I watched women daintily adding food to their plates. A sprinkling of pita chips here, a dollop of hummus there, a thin slice of pumpkin cake layered with cream cheese… Continue

Hi there, my name is Tammy. I thought I’d introduce you to our family. We live in sunny Florida. I am blessed with a wonderful husband, Kevin and six wonderful children. Our first three children are boys: Josh (15), Garitson (11) and Nathan (9) then came the girls: Miranda (7), Abbie (6) and Kiera (2). I was diagnosed with breast cancer while pregnant with Kiera. It was a rough ride but she was born healthy despite everything. Six days after she was induced early I began four months of chemo,… Continue

My sweet Lab dog - Mali - is 12 and has all the typical old lab issues and is now peeing in the house. Well, I think it is him... it is not likely to be the three year old lab. Oh I don't want to call this one. The Shepherd was hard when it was time to put him down but it was obvious, he was in pain and he bit a dog. How long before he bit a child? But the Lab? He is just old... but still sweet. But I can't handle mopping every morning for very long...

Babyies and Sunscreen...
If you are a new mother and have a need to be in the sun this summer with your child you have probably noticed that every sunscreen you pick up is approved by the FDA for children over 6 months.
As an Arbonne consultant I have a client with 3 children who asked me last summer about the ABC Sunscreen and could it be used on her infant. When I called the product support team I received an interesting answer, paraphrased here:
The FDA places the… Continue
