My son stayed home with me again today so that he could continue to heal and so that I could make sure that he was fever free before sending him back to daycare. He acts like he is feeling much better today and his fever finally broke last night. Thank goodness, I don’t like it when my baby doesn’t feel…Continue

Did you know that you could have a stranger in your home right at this moment that you are completely unaware is present? If you or anyone in your home is communicating online or through texting with someone you do not know personally, then you are opening your home to a stranger. Technology can be a wonderful tool, but it also can open our families, our children included, to new dangers.

When I first started blogging, I did a search for do’s and don’ts. It was advised not to take any religious or political stands. However, I’m not a single parent expert or anything—I just blog about my life as a single parent. And I feel that some topics certainly affect me as a parent so sorry blogging advisers. I also want to make clear that I respect all…Continue

Have you been told by the doctor that you have high cholesterol? Does it concern you? I have and yes it does concern me. The build-up of plaque in the arteries, called Atherosclerosis, can be very serious. With an unhealthy diet, cholesterol collects in the artery walls and can cause deadly heart attacks. I for one, would love to be around to see my grandkids, if my son ever has any that is (he is a little shy, but that’s a whole other blog…lol). In my research, I have learned that certain…Continue

It’s no secret that obesity is a problem in the United States. And in spite of the fact that a hunger problem exists as well, our population as a whole eats more and moves less than the citizens of other countries. Sadly, it’s no longer just affecting adults, but children as well. Even though medicine has made huge strides and people, on average, are living longer, it has been said that today’s generation of children and teenagers may not live as long as their parents will. So,…Continue

If you read my post last Monday, which you can access here, you know that cooking was never my favorite household chore. It always ranked right up there with ironing and scrubbing the toilet bowl. But the family has to eat, am I right?
Actually, it wasn’t the cooking part that I had an aversion to, nor was it wondering what to make. I have tons of great cookbooks and recipes that have been handed down over the years so culinary ideas are not the issue. It wasn’t even the cleanup…Continue

My daughter, Hana, often comes up with ideas to enlarge our little family, though I always teach her that Every Family is Different. The most common idea is for Mommy and Daddy to get back together. If you’ve kept up…Continue

How do we achieve happiness as a family, especially when you consider varying personalities, interests and communication styles? Not to mention different genders and ages, two-adult homes and one-adult homes? I recently read an article based on a book by Bruce Feiler on this very topic. He introduces some interesting facts and concepts I think worthy of sharing. In our incredibly fast paced lives, full of stress and worry how do we find peace at home?
I think most people have heard…Continue

Last Sunday, I went to church alone for the first time in a long time. I usually like to go with Hana, but she was at her dad's. Since it was just me, I sat myself in the back of the church. During mass, a baby was being baptized, and I was a mere 10 feet away from witnessing this special moment. First, it got me thinking about when Hana was baptized. Then I…Continue

Teenagers begin exerting their own voices and want to begin making their own choices. Their choices may not be the choice that you agree with and they may cover up their actions to avoid getting caught. If they are caught, they may attempt to cover up what they did and begin telling their parents a stream…Continue

Parents it is very important that you have a continuous relationship with their child as they are growing up so that when your child becomes a teenager, you will know them well enough to determine when they aren’t telling you the truth. Kids will tell you a story if they think that they can get away with it.…Continue

www.HappyMothersDayIsEveryday.com is a youtube video that can be given to any mom. The message says, "I love you mommy" from any child.
People would not exist if it were not for Mother. Even I did not understand why my Mother made such a fuss over me when I was child, but now that I have children of my own, I certainly understand what my Mother went through with me.

I was quite young when my parents started taking me to different museums and I always enjoyed them. My imagination would start getting wild. I am a firm believer that museums are a great family outing. They are a chance to spend some time together, exploring, learning about the past, present or the future, trying new…Continue

I wanted to call this post I know best, but thought it might be a bit too presumptuous. So, I disguised myself as a Mother. Which I am. Since getting this honorary title, I have discovered it comes with so many responsibilities. The famous line of from J.F.K. comes to mind, somewhat altered though: "ask not what…Continue
