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.

I'm fortunate to live in an area where good food is accessible and appreciated. There's nothing I enjoy more than a great dining experience and it's always been my goal to make sure Munch knows the good from the bad.
Step one was exposing her to a variety of cuisines and flavor profiles. When she was barely a year old, I was delighted to discover Munch's favorite food from my aunt and uncle's house was sinigang- Filipino "sour soup." When I went back to work, I was glad to know Munch…

I am a bit obsessive when it comes to feeding my kids. When I start looking at labels and realizing that EVERYTHING they eat has sugar, salt, and disgusting chemicals it just makes me crazy! Even so-called "healthy" foods like yogurt and granola bars are loaded with refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. It makes me want to move to a cabin in the woods and feed the kids…Continue

After I received the lovely email from my husband about the water heater being ready to burst, we decided to shut off the hot water for the rest of the evening until the repairman could come out and fix it.
Anna and I decided to go to my parent's house which is about 40 minutes

The spicy smells of Italian cooking on the stove tickled my nose as we walked in to my parent's house. Anna…Continue

We came home and began preparing....only to find out baby Johnathan was not as excited as we were. After a talk with his Dr., he recommended we try…Continue

It’s late at night and I’m doing double duty as usual, the multi-tasker that I am. I’m in the shower bathing myself while also scrubbing the tub clean. Fun? Not. But hey, someone has to do it.
It’s as I step out of the shower and catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror…Continue

Finally! Our representatives have grown a pair and have drawn a line in the sand against the fast food industry, on our behalf. In a nearly unanimous vote by city officials, fast food operators in San Francisco can no longer give away toys in kid's meals, unless they meet certain standards...much higher than what these restaurants…Continue
