Today is World Cancer Day. This is a topic near to my heart. A year ago, my mother checked in to the hospital due to difficulty breathing, which she had been living with for weeks thinking it was some kind of a cold. After draining 2.5 liters of fluid from in and around her lungs, doctors reported that she’d almost died of a pulmonary embolism, caused by something yet more sinister – late-stage ovarian cancer.…

The following is an excerpt from Dr. Wayne Dyer’s video: How To Be A No-Limit Person
“When you squeeze an orange, nothing will ever come out of it except orange juice. It doesn’t matter who squeezes it – a child, an adult, a professional, a blind person – it likewise doesn’t matter what time you squeeze…

I was presented with the update of JJ’s hospital billing a few minutes ago and it almost gave me a heart attack. The nurse said it was just an update for yesterday’s confinement and did not include doctor’s fees yet and the additional fees for the day. I secretly hoped that JJ would be discharged today so no more fees will accumulate, but unfortunately, the doctor didn’t give the go signal because JJ still had low oxygen count… Continue

After months of being away from our boys, we needed to bring back the bond. We could tell they have missed us so, as much as we’ve missed them. After all, there was really never a time that we… Continue

Remember the old saying, "Insanity is repeating the same action over and over again and expecting different results?"
If your actions are beginning to feel like reruns from a bad sitcom and you are not getting the results you want, you may very well be stuck in a spin cycle and it is time to try something new.
If your stomach is tied in knots and you are going around and around to no avail, you've realized that you are… Continue

Yes, I do drop f-bombs, s-bombs, all kinds of bombs when I write. Depends on my mood as to what comes out of my mind and through my fingers.
Fair warning......no offense meant and none will be taken.

The word "attachment" is used a lot in parenting magazines and often comes up in discussions among parents.

In fact, a whole line of research has developed focused solely on attachment theory. So I thought I'd offer a little background on what psychologist mean when they discuss attachment.
The academic… Continue

As I was setting up the changing table last night, I took the Pampers diapers and started entering in all the codes I had. Even though it takes at least 400 points to buy anything, a pamper saved is a pamper earned! (That sounded less lame in my head)
Today I found a couple of codes for free Gifts to… Continue

This Winter season has been unusually cold and has caused many at home or snow days with the children. When you are parents of multiples, it can seem like a very long day that never ends--basically GroundHog Day on repeat. The first day seems wonderful--snuggling underneath the blankets and watching a favorite family movie. By the third day, you are totally sick of the hearing the Elmo's World theme song and you really don't care if the kids have drawn on all the walls in the house with… Continue

How do you breastfeed multiples? Which formula should I use on my preemie twins? I want my multiples to have play dates, (other than each other), but I don't know where to take them? None of my other mom friends have multiples or understand what I'm going through? All of these questions and much more can be answered by joining a local multiples club.
Multiples club are a valuable resource and wealth of knowledge for parents of… Continue

Bilingual culture is a part of everyday society, including in the world of children. The proved benefits of children speaking dual languages have been reflected in schools and the media. From dual language immersion programs in elementary schools to television shows that portray bilingual children, such as Disney's Spanish Handy Manny or Nickelodeon's Chinese Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, teaching another language to a child has become highly recommended.
Most families of multiples have an… Continue
