It was a dreary, windy, humid Sunday and I was tired of being in the house with the kids…for four days…and another school vacation day today. Please…will these children EVER go back to school for more than three days in a row? So, after watching two recorded episodes of What Not To Wear, I was primed to go shopping.

I'm so excited. My son is allergic to so many things and we've been through the wringer with him but he's doing so well. So, I wrote Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey to share what we did that helped him so that other families can be helped also. I never imagined that writing the book would lead to radio interviews and interacting with so many wonderful people with such a wealth of knowledge. Here is a…Continue

As a former television news producer, this clip of Kermit the Frog, reporter, never fails to crack me up. In it, he is at the scene of breaking news - an ongoing, live accident scene. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall.
The kids love it because it's a nursery rhyme they know mixed in with with intense imagery, so that they are both familar with…

Before I go any further I need to admit something - I used to make fun of people who blog. I apologize if this explanation offends any of my fellow bloggers ;).
I just didn't get the point of blogging. My thought was, why do people think anyone cares about what they have to say? Talk about being full of it! I mean, it's one thing if you're sharing new data, known facts, you know, useful information.....it's another if you're just spouting out randomness.
I was really…

I had a bright idea one day.....since I have a few things to sew anyway AND there is a craft show coming up.....why not sew a few more and try to start a business? 4 months and hours upon hours of work later I'm realizing a little bit of talent and creativity does not a booming business make.
I managed to secure a booth last minute at my very first craft show the week of Thanksgiving. The 2-day show was scheduled for the second week of December. Even though I knew I had a lot of work to…

Social media has revolutionized what it means to be a mother. Sure, the basics of mothering remain the same throughout the ages, but with all the information of the internet at our fingertips, new theories catch steam quickly, unsafe practices are brought to light in front of large audiences, and people can pick and choose which parenting methods work best for them in real time, as these methods are being used and tested by others.
One of the largest drawbacks to staying at home…

Ready for this? I don't think that it is a school's responsibility to be nut free. I don't think airlines should be mandated to keep peanuts off a plane. I don't think it should be mandatory for restaurants to provide nut-free options or for that matter, egg free, dairy free, soy free or anything else- to which all my son is allergic. It's my issue and my responsibility.
It's certainly greatly appreciated and an act of goodwill when schools, airlines, restaurants and…Continue

Remember that elephant show with Bram and Sharon? Neither do my babies, but they love the song!

Ways to Trick your Baby:
Problem: Congratulations! Your child is pooping in the potty! What could possibly be the problem there? Well, I don't know about you, but after years of wiping the stuff, cleaning the stuff, and otherwise handling it, I find nothing more gross than carrying it from the chamber pot to the actual toilet to flush. And, sometimes, it sticks. It sticks. It's something that just turns my stomach, and I don't know why, but I hate it.

Okay, so I encourage the importance of a partnership between doctors and patients. I figure if we can talk to our doctors, he'll know better what's going on with us and we'll better understand what he wants from us. We'll also be able to work together if we have all kinds of other ideas we're thinking of trying that he may not suggest- like using olive oil for that dry scalp instead of a medicated shampoo.
But could this closeness hurt the doctor? Go with me for a second.…Continue

Okay, this has to be one of the most important skills parents have up their sleeve. I have a child with asthma. In my case it's vital. If a kid panics, things just escalate out of control. So, any tricks we teach our children to stay calm can be life saving. You can read all about that in my book Little Patient Big Doctor.
Even if you are not dealing with asthma but have a child who is stuck on top of…Continue

With Valentine’s Day around the corner and references to the celebration of love and romance to be seen everywhere, I thought that it was timely to finally read this book that has been – repeatedly – recommended over the years. Before I had my two youngest daughters, a girlfriend mentioned the “must read”…Continue

It's about the questions, as I share in Little Patient Big Doctor. If you want to stand up for yourself, if you want to give voice to your doubts, you have to ask a question. It starts and ends with questions. The answers to our questions open doors for us to that which we need. That's why the question is brewing within.
So, what's your favorite question when you walk into a doctor's office? Some…Continue
