Volunteer-Give Back!

Today my family and I are volunteering at our “All Church Work Day”.  Our church hosts events like this throughout the year to provide an opportunity for us as members to get involved.  There can be a multitude of different tasks involved: painting and building maintenance work, cleaning and dusting, cleaning of children's classrooms, organizing and preparing for upcoming events and so much more.…

NOW I Understand Being In A Blog Rut. Has This Happened To You?

I have been blogging since 2008 and yes, there have been periods of time when I think my words are pretty much spent.  'I've talked about this before' or 'No one's commenting so is anyone even reading my words?' or, a thought that happens more often than not, 'I re-e-e-ally want to write out this experience but if the people I'm writing about read this I would be mortified.  I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings'.  These thoughts, and some others, have held me in what I thought was a blog…

Teaching Kids About Differences Using Eggs

I thought today was a fitting day to tell the story about one of my favorite school events. When Mackenzie was in the 2nd grade, her school held an event to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. They used  this event to show the kids that no matter how different we may be on the outside, on the inside we’re all the same.

That in itself is very nice, but…

Kids Who Sell Stuff… And People Who Don’t Buy

I have 3 kids which means in our time and like everyone else, we’ve sold a lot of crap. We’ve sold cookie dough, pizza making kits, wrapping paper, God awful things they considered “gifts”, magazine subscriptions and of course, Girl Scout cookies.  We are VERY lucky that the elementary school we’re at now doesn’t participate in item sales – they just ask us for pledges and donations at the beginning of the year. And then nickel and dime us the rest of the year, but that’s a different…

Celebrating the Holidays Alone

By Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

Are you alone and wondering how you'll be celebrating the holidays this year? Whether you're divorced or widowed, a single parent or the spouse of a deployed serviceperson, it most likely seemed easier when you had a partner to share in the planning. But now that you'll be the one creating the holiday mood, take advantage of the freedom you have to develop customs that are just right for you. …

It Takes A Village: Does "Community Spirit" Still Exist?

I used to love this song when I was a child:
Sesame Street was the "bee's knees" and this song rocked my world. Who were the people in my neighborhood? I wasn't sure but I knew I wanted to find out, at least that's what the song compelled me to do. Being a kid growing up watching Sesame Street along with the Electric Company, I listened intently…

Who are we blogging to anyway? Is anyone out there???

I love the blogosphere, and since you are reading this, it is safe to assume that you do too!  Blogging is a terrific way to have a discussion with perfect strangers about topics that bring us together.  Perfect example: here we are at MomBloggersClub.com. . . we are all here for one reason: we are mothers seeking information, wanting to share…

Don't Let A Doctor Destory Your Baby's Hearing

Do you think that this is a sensational title?  It is posted this morning on CNN.com/Health.  I'm really curious to hear what you think because the story is about our family.  Will this encourage patient advocacy or will it harm doctor/patient relationships?

Thank You: CNN Picked Up the Story

Thank you to each of the mom bloggers out there who I don't know but together create a community of support.  My story and Little Patient Big Doctor is profiled today on CNN.com.  Part of the reason is the positive community of support we give each other.  Seeing each of you succeed gives me strength to believe that my…

Why I Blog

Why do I blog?

 

It's a question I've been asked, been pondering, been mulling over, been justifying quite a bit lately.  As I try to shape this space into something that people enjoy and can relate to, yet is still uniquely mine, I have to make choices and try to be interesting.  Try to engage, persuade, entertain, inform.  I blog to connect with the millions of people out there like me, who…

Georgia O'Keffee's guardian angel comes forward quietly

Now that the world knows what I knew back then, I can blog about it! Tennessee’s attorney general, Bob Cooper, announced on Friday, October 22, 2010 that Fisk Alumna, Dr. Carol Creswell-Betsch, stepped forward with funds to keep the Stieglitz collection at Fisk University. To the shouts of many on the outside of the Fisk bubble, a Fisk alumnus was doing what alumni around the country do daily, support their school.



Let me give you a few… Continue

Learning to Pick My Battles

Often, I share about my grandfather (Daddy) and the love he showed his grandchildren. He really was a good man. He was not perfect by any means but he did not waiver on things that were out of sync with doing what was right when no one was around to see. One of his favorite sayings was “fair is fair”. Those words were usually followed up by “ball or strike”. One day, I am going to write a book about his poetic sayings.



Once, I accompanied my grandfather to a meeting held at our… Continue

Google Me This…

Granted, the (relatively!) new millennium has already brought with it a myriad of new terms being coined to keep up with the advent of social media & constant technological advances. Though the jury is still out on the efficacy of many of them, I’m throwing my hat in the ring & coining one of my own! Whether or not it ever makes it past the borders of Crazy Town is neither here nor there…frankly, without the …

Show Me Some Comment Luv!

I have decided to enter my very first blogging contest! No, not for the fabulous cash prizes being awarded. Yeah, I didn’t believe me either. However, cash aside, I was drawn in by the topic itself. Blog commenting, & any & all topics surrounding it. Since the inception of Crazy Town, I have built an incredible community of friends & fellow bloggers, through the exchanging of comments & I’d be lost without the support of said community. We rely on each other to validate what…
