I love everything about Spring. The cool crisp air, the gorgeous blooming trees and flowers and the longer days. Spring is when I do my annual home deep clean. This year though I am taking a different approach. I'm starting my Spring cleaning with me first. I shared in a previous post that I… Continue

Do you procrastinate when it comes to scheduling necessary medical checkups?
Do you even know what exams and tests you should have, when you should have them and why they are important?

Starting this year one of my resolutions is to bebsnd stay in shape. Now I know I could say I'll work out everyday but with caring care of LJ that just isn't going to happen. If it does some weeks great but if not oh well but my resolution is that it has to be at least 3 times a week.
So i was looking at different ways to get my exercise in either in the morning, nap time or after little msn is in bed. So my friend told me about tone it up. One of course the girls on the page or… Continue

I grew up hearing from my dad that a woman can do anything a man can do. Now, as a parent, I try to impart that same wisdom to my own two girls. Still, biologically, there are some things gals can do that guys can't — breast-feed, for one.… Continue

If you walk the halls of an elementary school, you're likely to see lots of "metal-mouths." Many parents are now opting for early orthodontic treatment, and the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children see an orthodontist for an evaluation no later than the age of seven. But research shows there are often advantages to deferring treatment
"There's been a number of studies that have shown… Continue

I got on the scale this morning, looked down and couldn't believe my eyes. 100 pounds, exactly. It's major I know. Losing 100 pounds is amazing and in 5 months no less. But, what's even more amazing is that I realized this is just one more loss. I'm not done. I can celebrate this achievement, and I will—in fact, I just got done texting with a coworker/friend of mine who promised me an outfit when I got to 100—but as I told my god-mother this morning when she asked me how we should celebrate,… Continue

I had read an article about these super-cool magnetic bumper stickers, CAUTION NEW DRIVER, and thought to myself. What a brilliant idea! Whenever I'm having my newly permitted child practice driving skills, I'll just slap it onto the back of the ol' van. Then all the other kindly drivers will be instantaneously aware and think to themselves, "Oh, look. How sweet, a new driver. I'll give him a nice, wide berth so he has plenty of room as he…

I was thinking the other day about perceptions, and it’s so true that life is what we perceive it to be. This holds true for any area of your life. Think about it, if you perceive your body image as that of a fat, no good person then you will feel like a fat, no good person. Reality is you need to look at every area of your life and perceive it to be a positive place. Yes you may not be totally happy with your body image, yes your life may appear to be in a rough place right now. So many people… Continue

When I started on my green journey, one of the first things I changed was all of our personal care products. Everything from shampoo to body wash to lotion. I learned that all of the items we were using were loaded with chemicals that were not doing us any good. Some of the dangerous ingredients you will find on traditional products are formaldehyde, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate and sadly, so much more. I want to quickly take a look at one of these to… Continue

I am wondering how many parents are like me in their inability to keep up to date on political issues. It is frustrating to say the least, to not have the time to listen to the news or to read the newspapers and whenever I do get the chance to get better informed I usually wind up either in tears and angry from reality or completely confused.
Listening to educated people is my alternative and I try to listen to all sides so that I can make my own opinions. One of the most important… Continue

ody is estimated to be 60% water, which if you think about that in terms of your body as a whole- 100%-then 60% of your body being made up of water is quite a bit. In fact, that's downright a huge portion of what your body is made of. Water is essential to thrive, grow, and function in life. Without water, we would die. So many organs in our bodies are made up of water (the brain is 80% water!) that we simply need water for those organs to function properly and to their full… Continue
