Drinking from the garden hose

Every summer morning, my brother and I would look at the thermometer near the kitchen door. If the thermometer said it was 74 degrees outside, then we were allowed to wear shorts. It was a big deal.…

Planning to outlast your partner

The other day I heard a comedian say that a successful marriage is when one partner gets to watch the other partner die first. Yes, that is pretty morbid, but it is also true: Marriage vows even state "til death do us part."…

How old are you really?

A few months ago, a couple of coworkers were trying to figure out my age. Eventually, one of them just came out and asked me. Several of them thought I was significantly younger than I actually am. I know this is not because of the way I look (I think I look my age), but rather because of the energy level that I have.…

How to Get rid of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is usually a widespread operating injury which has plagued most runners in their operating lives. Nonetheless, it really is one thing that, if caught easily, is usually treated rather successfully from house. When you’re obtaining heel discomfort any time you 1st get out of bed within the morning – then it gets improved as you begin moving about – it is a fantastic bet that it is Plantar Fasciitis that’s the culprit. The plantar fascia tissue runs in the heel, by way of the…

When your baby fat grows up

All mothers know there are two definitions of the phrase "baby fat." The first definition describes the extra roll of fat that clings to babies and is absolutely adorable. The second definition refers to those extra pounds that cling to a woman's body after she has the baby (and is considered much less adorable). Mothers usually blame their baby for their weight gain, and then try their luck at getting rid of it.…

How Women Can Use Muscle Building Supplements Safely To Maintain Their Health

If you are a woman who has reached the age of 45, you are more likely to lose muscle mass if you don’t do anything to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Most women do not engage in exercise past the age of 40, and this could highly contribute to the loss of muscle, if an active exercise and body building regimen is not undertaken.

Along with regularly exercising, it is advisable to consume supplements in order to attain dietary requirements, especially while exercising.

To build…

5 Things People Ask Me When They Find Out I'm Married To A Gynecologist

I can see the pupils dilate and the wheels begin to turn when people find out that I'm married to a gynecologist. Paranoid as this may seem, I've answered enough questions and survived too many bizarre interactions to be caught with my pants down again. My husband commenced his OB-GYN residency two weeks…

The dangers of single parenthood

My Mom is an amazing woman (thanks, Mom!). And she is a tough woman: Being a single mom to two children while holding down a full-time job is a rough gig. Because she worked 60+ hour weeks, I learned how to cook and clean, as well as how to look after myself and get myself where I needed to go. I'm probably a more independent person today because of her.…

Talking about our weight

My son likes to tap on my fitbit. He likes to see how many dots I have and (after I explained what the dots are measuring) he encourages me to move around more to get all my dots for the day.



Most parents admit that they are uncomfortable talking with their children about…

Seven hours of sleep at night

It's 10 pm; the house is quiet. I double-check the locks on all the doors and go room-by-room, turning off the lights. The dishwasher is humming, the cat is following me, and there is a slight glow at the top of the stairs from our hallway nightlight. I slowly push back the door to my son's room to check on him. (I cherish the way he looks in slumber with one hand up by his face and an arm wrapped around his favorite stuffed animal.) I…

Are Your Jeans a Bit Snug?

Know that feeling when your favorite jeans are feeling a bit snug?  You know, when you have to do the bunny hop to get them all the way up or you have to lay flat on the floor to get them buttoned?  Yeah, you know exactly what I mean ladies.  At that point, you start to blame the dryer for shrinking them or your husband who put them in the dryer!  How dare he!…

You’re too old. As if! Growing old never looked so good! (Giveaway!)

I must admit, if you would have asked me my thoughts on ageing 10 years ago my reply would have been a negative one. And why not!?! Everything I had seen on television, in magazines, conversations with friends, etc. told me that once you get grays & wrinkles your life was pretty much over; you mine as well curl up into a ball and wait to die. Nothing about getting old seemed glamorous. Old people always complain about this breaking, that not working like it used to, etc. Ugh! Who…

Don't wake that baby up

In our household I think about sleep a lot: Who is getting enough of it and how to get more quality sleep. I am obsessed over my own sleep as well as that of the bears I live with and help wake up in the morning.…

You might be making your spouse fat

My husband and I both work full time. And there was a long period where we worked in the same company (albeit different departments). And we both worked really long hours.



Then we had our little guy and life had to change: There were more important aspects to our life together than work.…

THE 'WORK-LIFE-BALANCE-THING'

People are working almost 24 x 7 these days. I have a lot of friends who work in corporate world and here is a short story on one of them:

A friend of mine had a very lucrative sales job and her team was based out of China and U.S.A. When I used to ask her about how that worked out, she told me that she would work with her team in the U.S.A. during the morning hours and then come back home, feed her kids, make them do their homework, put them to sleep and would be on calls with her…

How to Prevent Child Skin Rash

I have changed a few diapers and it doesn't look like I'll be in the clear for quite a long time. My kids have outgrown them, but besides being a nanny for many years prior to having them, I am the assistant director of early childhood for a large children's program for infant through pre-schoolers, so still around babies and toddlers daily.



Yes, I've wiped a good share of bums and am proud of it!…
