Right On, Kermie!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWE3uF9u9-g

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…

Confessions of a former blog hater

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…

Can I work from home?

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 and Moms - An Introduction

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…

Do You Think You Have a Preset Time to Live? And . . . Who's the Nut When it Comes to Allergies?

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…

Toddler Tricks - 25 - Potty Training Edition

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.



Solution:  This…

Would you sue a doctor you like, if he made a mistake?

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.…

How do you calm a panicked kid?

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…

Raising Healthy Kids

  • Introduce good eating habits early in your children’s life.
  • Pay attention to your children’s weight as he or she grows. Be sure to discuss your children’s situation with your pediatrician or other healthcare provider.
  • Let your children learn to respond to internal hunger cues rather than learned social ones. Don’t worry if your kids don’t eat as much as you think they should.
  • Encourage your children to be physically active. Remember that not all physical…

5 Love Languages

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.

What's Your Favorite Question to Ask Your Doctor?

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…

Bitchslapped by Tiger Mom! Damn!

I've by now heard all this silly controversy over Amy Chau's book Tiger Mom, or whatever it's called.  I happened to be at Yale for a book signing so thought I would go meet this woman.  I was wearing one of my typical but awesome outfits; straight tight jeans, a very hard to find, but perfect fitting white T, high, black boots, and a black leather jacket.

Can you partner with your doctor? (Get your minds out of the gutter gals)

So, I just wrote a book, Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey.  I open the book with a letter to doctors to partner with their patients in their care.  Look, we all do it. . . we seek out "alternative remedies".  Wouldn't it be nice if our doctors would actually listen to us and work with us as we tried out all this… Continue

Allergies- To Live or To Fear?

Approximately 100-200 people die from food allergies a year.  Here's my question, does that mean that all those over protective, over the top moms are making a difference?  Or does that mean that people should just relax and not go nuts over their child's food allergies? 

 

To be honest, I'm not sure exactly what I think about this but I wrote a book,…
