Every Day is Boxing Day

Boxing Day used to be a high point for many of us parents. After a year of buying full-price retail items and perhaps getting some items on sale every so often, this one day of the year promised to relieve us from the financial strain of raising children in a modern world. Kids, after all, are expensive.



While the holidays proved to be a high point of the year, let's face it: getting a snowsuit or new running shoes for our children at 60 per cent off was almost too much to bear.…

Mood Lighting with CFL Lights

Much to my chagrin, we are now in that time of year when days are getting noticeably shorter (I almost feel the vitamin D leaving my body as I type…). The lights in the house will indubitably get turned on earlier in the morning and earlier in the evening. I never used to think about how much energy a light bulb consumed but now, in trying to conserve resources, I do think about it every time I turn on a light.

It’s a good time of year to let you know about a product that I just…

Easier and Greener Leaf Pick-Up - dSolv

I will admit that I do not have much use for an eco-friendly leaf pick up and biodegradable bag as I live in Southern California, but I do remember that while growing up in Canada, raking the leaves before the first snowfall was a task for the entire family.

Dsolv bags makes this chore a little bit…

More Shoes with a Cause

We love to support companies that do great work here and abroad. By now, we are all now quite familiar with (and wearing) Toms Shoes and we love the great work the company does around the world (Did you know that Toms does eyewear now, under the same One-for-One principle).  In fact, we…

Go Green - Air Dry Your Laundry

Remember the days when our mothers and grandmothers pinned up the laundry on the clothesline outside? Ours was a reel line that spanned the yard and went from the patio to the nearby wooden phone pole. I remember handing the clothespins to my mom, picking out the colorful plastic ones over the too-old-fashioned wood pegs (of…

Oh What A Night

We sat down last night to watch the movie "The Green Hornet". I wasn't too sure of this movie and hadn't really seen any previews or advertising for it. That to me is usually a red flag. If they don't promote it much, chances are it's not that good of a movie. Having Netflix, we opted to give it a try and added it to our queue. Was that a wise decision? Hmmmm.



About half way into the movie, our attention was caught by flashing lights coming from outside. We couldn't see exactly what it… Continue

How to Be Summer Ready

As summer finally begins to make itself known around here (I know, everyone else is experiencing record highs, right?), last week I found myself feeling outsmarted again by our stuff.



"OK, everyone outside."

"Wait, where's your hat?"

"Do you have sunblock on yet?"

"I don't know. Where IS the sunblock?"

"Who used the sunblock last?!"



I've said it a million times. But here it goes again. My job description oftentimes feels like it must read: 50% SAHM duties /…

New Study Connects Autism to Environmental Exposures

Healthy Child Healthy World, who I blog for because they educate parents to protect children from harmful chemicals, just informed me that a new scientific study linking autism to environmental exposures has rocked the pediatric health care community. That’s important information I want to pass on to you. Maybe your family is impacted by autism, or maybe this information can help prevent future cases of autism.

How to Make Sunshine

Today we rose to a sun that was trying it's darndest to burn through the mist that shrouds the redwoods. It'd peek through momentarily, lighting up the whole living room, and within minutes hide again beyond the mist.



Finally at ten o'clock the…

Thumbs Up

The spring is progressing nicely.  We have managed to dodge the Toto-like weather, and my garden is planted and starting to grow.  The mixture of rain, humidity, and sunshine has contributed to my green thumb abilities.

Everything has come up except for the spinach and Swiss chard.  Well, a singular spinach plant has sprouted.  One.  I never had any luck last year, so I’m not holding out much hope for this year.  I’m not really sure if the Swiss chard is up yet, because I’ve never…

Making Contact...Again

By the end of the month, my girls look shaggy. Not shabby, mind you. Just a bit more unkempt. That one spot that always gets a tangle every.single.day. remains tangled. Hair is in their eyes. Bothering them. And unknowingly bothering me too.

And shaggy is all good. I'm into it...to a degree. But what… Continue

In Memory of My Mother I am Going to Plant a Tree

My mother suddenly passed away four years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her dearly. Losing my mother, even though I was in my 40′s, felt like I was being abandoned. I felt a sense of loss that was so paralyzing. I was left unable to take care of myself or make a single decision on my own. I could not fathom that she was actually gone. I would often pick up the phone on Sunday to call her, since that was our standing phone date after my father passed…

Washing Dishes...Again

When we moved to our new home eight months ago, I was worried. You see, our new home has no dishwasher. And I had kind of made a personal vow that I would never move to another home without a dishwasher again until all my kids had left the nest.



I love dishwashers. Matter of fact, if I had to put all my appliances in order (yes, odd, but something I've done while living without electricity in the rainforest), it would be like this:

1. Stove (Burners beat out all. Plain and…

I want to be one of the Top 25 Eco-Friendly Moms to you — regardless if I make it on the list or not.
