Occasionally, there is such a thing as being too
A while back, I had a wonderful friend and neighbor. Mrs. Neighbor lived with Mr. Husband in a house that was always full of teenagers (some of them were even hers). Well, one weekend, Mr. Husband took the teenagers on a camping trip and left Mrs. Neighbor with the house completely to herself. This had never happened before. There was much rejoicing on the part of Mrs. Neighbor, but secretly I was was worried about her… Continue

Ask your partner why they love you. See what happens. I did, and then I tried not to panic when my husband paused and told me the question made his brain hurt.
Well actually, that requires the presence of a brain, and since he still hadn’t answered yet, I seriously doubt his is in working order. Men can be so DENSE
Oh, by the way, our rubberbands from last week’s session, lasted approximately 20 hours. Not even a full day. They were, quite possibly, the worst idea I’ve… Continue

At times the desire to eat certain foods becomes overpowering and in an attempt to avoid disappointing Mom and Dad, kids start to sneak food. Often, parents do not see the amount of unhealthy foods their children are consuming. Have you noticed any erratic eating patterns, hidden candy wrappers, disappearing foods, or consistent weight gain? If so, your child may be sneaking food. Over time, children who sneak unhealthy foods can become overweight or obese.
What can you do as a… Continue

The likelihood of our children living healthy, long lives continues to decrease. A new study from the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center found that children now have more risk factors for heart disease than their parents. Our kids are now more likely to have a heart attack at some time during their lives than we are!
The major reason for this increased risk is the significantly increased rate of obesity among children. Studies show that children today have a significantly… Continue

When Padma Lakshmi, the celebrity host of the cooking show, Top Chef, declined to reveal the gender of her unborn baby on a talk show, she represented an exception to the rule among pregnant women: most want to know what they’re having and share the news with the rest of the world.
Women under age 30 still have a difficult time believing that pregnant women once had children without knowing the gender of their baby until birth. In the age of 4-D ultrasounds performed in strip malls,… Continue

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.
I was 18-years-old when the 14 women were gunned down. As an earlier adopter of feminism, I had already done much of the reading required of a budding feminist and had some very decent mentors in place.
When the Montreal Massacre happened, it rocked my young world. Twenty years have gone by and never have I forgotten that day. Throughout my life, I have… Continue

First let me share with you some of my favorite Christmas songs. If you read this from my actual site, just turn the volume up if you want to enjoy my gift to you ... or down if you need silence! I love the music at this time of year. The old stuff brings me back to innocent (and not so innocent) days of my past and the newer ones are forming memories for my kids. Just love it.
Anyway, in my exhaustion of the past week I forgot to mention in… Continue

You will need: a large work area (this can get pretty messy, so use newspaper or make your volcano in the garden), modelling clay (brown and red), baking soda, red food colouring, washing up liquid, vinegar.
1. Make the outside of the volcano with modelling clay. Use brown clay for the base and red clay for the rim to make it look like red-hot lava.
2. Scoop out a hole at the top… Continue

While pregnant or even before, every woman inevitably thinks about the topic of breastfeeding. Will I breastfeed my baby? For how long? I think most women have the best intentions and try to breastfeed and then stop after different periods of time – they might breastfeed a week, they make it through the rough first few weeks and go on to nurse for a few months or a year, and then there are the extended breastfeeding moms like me.
Breastfeeding was one of the things I most looked… Continue

Having respect for one’s partner is the only way a relationship can survive, let alone thrive. I’ve watched too many of my friends’ marriages crumble because either a husband or wife didn’t understand that, or just didn’t care to deliver it. Their need to be admired by the opposite sex was much more important to them at the time.
In my book … Continue
