Have you ever slipped and said a tacky word in front of your child? I know that I am guilty of this of accidentally saying something I will regret later or said something that wasn't appropriate for my children to hear. I have always tried to be aware and watch what I say and do in front of them. I want to make sure that my kids aren't picking up bad habits. Believe it or…Continue

I'd always thought that Mother Nature and I kind of had a connection -- you know with the whole "mother" thing and all.

When I was growing up, I was not a huge fan of reading. In fact I didn’t find it fun but as an adult I enjoy reading. I remember during summer reading programs or during the school year, I always had a habit of picking up the same books over and over again. I loved reading the same type of books that I did find enjoyable. I don’t know why I did this when I was younger, but I am glad that I ditched that habit because reading the same book over and over would get boring. As a mom, I know…Continue

Caroline’s last hours in the hospice were peaceful for her but they were painful for us . When the phone call finally came that she had died, despite the inevitability, the emotion was overwhelming.
Caroline had battled breast cancer for seven years before dying at the age of 39. In the days that followed I thought a lot about her parents, and husband, but I thought also about the children in our families as well as the children at the school where she’d been a…Continue

Once upon a time in a faraway land
Came 4 funny Dutch farmers with a little time on their hands
They all agreed to go for coffee at ole Joe’s shop
They all left their four houses; drove down the road, then came to a stop.
They came from the four corners of their country farms,
From the north, south, east and west,
All heading to Joe’s not causing any harm.
But when they met each other on that old country road
They knew they were in a…Continue

The Succulent Wife’s note: We are always wary of the latest diet fad and never pay much attention, but friends and family members seem to be raving about this particular diet. Really. Firsthand accounts. So we decided to take a closer – and scientific – look by asking our very own Dr. T to weigh on the merit of Dukan’s approach. Seems valid but, of course,…Continue
