Amazingly, the month of May is winding to a close, & with it, May Mayhem here in Crazy Town. I can’t say enough about all the fabulous ladies & incredible Moms who contributed to my celebration of motherhood, so I won’t bother to try….I’m exhausted, what do you want from me?! They also got me out of many a post this month…which I really needed. So… Continue

Sweet!! As in a “Sweet Blog Award”, from Pamela over at My Life As A Libra…made even better by the fact that “sweet” is not typically a term applied to me. Maybe she’s gunning for a free drink or two, since we recently discovered we’re in the same city, & ya know, good manners dictate I at least buy her… Continue

Although most pregnant women anticipate a normal, uncomplicated delivery, there are exceptions to the rules. A shoulder dystocia is one of the more frequent complications in the delivery room and unfortunately there is no sure-fire way to predict it.
A shoulder dystocia means that extra maneuvers must be done to deliver the baby’s shoulders. If not managed properly, the baby could sustain permanent injuries to its neck and arms. The most… Continue

Okay, I get it - I've read the newspaper, and my mom has described (in lurid detail) the more disgusting scenes in Food, Inc. Our eating habits are terrible and I want my family to be healthier. Unfortunately, I'm also coping with busy schedules, picky teens, and a bank account that doesn't allow me to indulge in… Continue

It’s been about a week that we dramatically changed things here in the Bleasdale kitchen. After reading Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet and watching the movie Food Inc., my husband decided that he wants to radically change his eating habits to hopefully get rid of the pain he has been in for months.
I went to the grocery… Continue

A few days ago we woke up to a few inches of snow! I got some nice pictures of Landon enjoying it. Now that he is three he seemed to be even more exited about the first snow of the season...

I did it yesterday. I accidentally dropped the bomb.
I let the S word slip from my mouth in front of the children as I was driving them to school. My son immediately picked up on my mistake and began gleefully using it so expertly, I almost believed he comprehended the import of what I had just done.
I had just corrupted my children.
You must understand the level of shame and guilt I felt. I am not one of those mothers! In fact, I barely can drop those kinds of… Continue

I am an avid Twitter user -- left to my own devices, I would tweet all day. I like to connect with many other people, mostly moms, who are interested in the same topics: natural birth, breastfeeding, attachment parenting, green and frugal living, homeopathy, and using social media. I also love to provide my followers (2550+) with valuable retweets they might benefit from.
I think social media is amazing in that it allows anyone with a message to get it out to many people — without it… Continue

We love The Real Housewives of New Jersey
! Hell, we love all "real" housewives for that matter. Today, the definition of housewife has taken on a whole new meaning, as evidenced at our event this past Friday night with the stars of The Real Housewives of NJ. Before we share the fabulous details of our evening, or dish on Dina Manzo and her sister, know this: According to Wikipedia (our trusted definition resource), "Housewife is a term used to describe a married female who is not… Continue

Are you an entrepreneur, artist, blogger, musician, or writer who wants to make a decent living? You can! I already blogged about how I heard David Mathison speak about using social media to market what you are passionate about and to use social media to your advantage. His book, Be The Media
, goes into much detail about how you only need 1000 true fans to make a decent living. That seems entirely doable!
Be The Media
is one of those book you want all of your family and… Continue

Most of us don’t wear pointy, golden brassieres or sexy tight cat suits so it may not be so obvious but I am convinced that all mothers are either Super Hero’s or Goddesses. Personally, I am far from being Helen of Troy or Hestia I feel as though I am more of a cross between Hera and Aphrodite with a little Medusa thrown in.
In the past three months my superhuman powers have reached dangerously high toxic levels as I managed to survive four… Continue

Would it shock you to learn that American companies haven't kept up with the changes in today's workforce or with their families? I think not. On October 16th, this little known fact became official as the Center for American Progress and Maria Shriver released “The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation Changes Everything.” This release reveals that, "For the first time in our nation’s history, one-half of all U.S. workers are women, and mothers are the primary breadwinners or co-breadwinners in… Continue
