My Daughter’s Second Cochlear Implant Surgery

Today is the day that my daughter gets her second cochlear implant.  I have to admit even though I have already been through this same surgery 12 years ago with my daughter, I was still nervous going into the hospital and waiting for her to have her surgery done.  My daughter was born with a severe to profound hearing loss in both ears.  In 2001, she received her first cochlear implant only on her right side and at that time doctors typically implanted only one side.  Cochlear implants…

Basic Essential Baby Items: 16 Baby Items that You Need to Care for a Newborn

Babies will never judge their parents for the amount of stuff that they had when they were little or didn’t have when they were babies.  In fact, most babies only need a few basic necessities in order to be adequately cared for and they don’t need a bunch of fancy things.  A baby will use most of their baby gear for a short period of time and they quickly grow out of it.  If you are expecting and have a limited budget, I would recommend that parents buy or register for the following…

My Son has a Fever and I'm Freaking Out!!!

I've been a parent for years now and I know that no matter what precautions we take, fevers and colds are inevitable. Two years ago, my older son had a fever the moment we got to Orlando.
