Safety Tips to Prevent Your Dream Pool from Becoming a Nightmare

Whether it’s a cosy hot tub, a full-sized pool or something in between, having a private place to take a dip at home is one of life’s greatest luxuries. There is little that compares to shrugging off the day’s troubles with a few relaxing laps or a good book and the gentle massage of…

Working with Colic and Postpartum Depression

Colic is characterized by inconsolable crying that usually lasts for 3 or more hours a day, and several hours at night for no apparent reason.  You’ve checked all the obvious things, the diapers, is baby hungry? Too hot? Too cold? Fever? Teething?  Ears?  No matter what you do, baby is uncomfortable, and usually spitting up quite a bit after feedings.  Then the crying starts.  You try walking baby, sometimes that helps, but not for long.  Finally, exhausted…

Listen to Your Heart: Learn the Signs and Symptoms of Heart Attack in Women

Would you recognize the signs of a heart attack in yourself or a loved one? I thought I knew all of the signs and found out I was wrong. Earlier this year Dr. D's mother died very unexpectedly of a heart attack. I became motivated to educate myself as much as possible about heart disease which is the number one killer of women in the United States.  I'm very passionate now…

It's Me-Covery Time!

I love that term. But I can take no credit for it. Me-Covery is actually marketing-speak. It’s a term coined by well-known marketing firm, Saatchi & Saatchi, to describe how consumers are now looking for ways to take care of themselves (a recovery of self), especially following the financial and emotional hardships caused by our Great Recession.

Indeed, as overworked, overburdened, overstressed women, doesn’t a little ME-covery sound perfect just about……

What Type Of Thinker Are You, Learning About The Mind From Temple Grandin

The mind of Temple Grandin is fascinating because it works very differently from most of ours.  She is a visual thinker, thinking in pictures.  Recently there was an HBO movie about her life, starring Claire Danes, that won many awards.  The movie beautifully illustrates how her mind works.  

Why does this matter? What can we learn from Temple…

Fingerpaint Flowering Trees

I had big plans to make the decorations for Em's Easter birthday party.  They were all crafts that came from toilet paper or paper towel rolls, and  I thought they would be an easy touch to her party, something homemade by her brother and me.  But as the date approached and I had more and more things on my plate, the crafts were pushed to the wayside.  It was all well and good because her party was beautiful just the way it was, with…

A Crafty Conclusion

This is a story of a happy little craft that was relatively painless to make and resulted in a very pretty flower arrangement that perhaps will adorn our table at Easter.  But in order to fully understand how these flowers rose from the ashes of crafty destruction, you'll have to go back one post (or click here) and read about their humble beginnings.  Plus, you won't know how to make the egg-shaped…

A Crafty Train Wreck

Note:  Feel free to use this tutorial as a lesson on how not-to-craft.  This is the anti-craft.

 

As my kids have grown older I have found an inner craftician that I never knew I had.  This should give all of you with craft anxiety hope because I am truly as creative as a wet sock.  I have now spent more time (and money) in craft stores in 2011 than I had spent in the past 30 years of my life…

Sick and Bored, What To Do?

It's frustrating being sick. If you can't sleep but have to rest what do you do?  For the first few hours it may be fun but after that it is just boring.  How do we keep the mind busy while the body rests?  

For a lucky few this isn't a problem.  They are able to sleep and heal.  Sleep is a struggle for many of the rest of us though and those hours in bed or on the couch get very long.

Whether you are a child or an adult there are lots of options though.  Some you may not be…
