It has happened so many times in the history of medical science that a drug discovered for some specific treatment later found broader acceptance in many other areas. Sometimes the subsequent use became more prevalent than the original purpose for which it was invented. The story of steroids is a case in point that exemplifies the statement. Today, most people look upon steroids as a compound that is a synthetic version of the male hormone testosterone and its derivatives that finds wide use…Continue

Kids can be picky eaters and have tiny tummies, which means that going to the trouble of preparing an elaborate meal could end up feeling like a major letdown when they take two bites and declare that they're full, or they don't like it. It's almost guaranteed that just about any kid will eat chicken nuggets and mac and cheese, but that's not always the healthiest choice.
So, how do you find a good compromise? How do you…Continue

I have often hoped that I would not pass along my fear of snakes to my son. And for several years, I think I did a pretty good job. He eventually learned that I was afraid of snakes, but he still doesn't seem to be afraid of them. So, yay me.…

I was listening to a friend of mine describe her daughter's schedule, and it scared me. She told me how her daughter would come home on the bus by 5:30 pm, start homework, leave for sports practice at 7 pm, return home at 8:15 pm to eat dinner and then do more homework until 10:30. She would then wake up at 5 am the next morning to finish up the rest of her homework. My friend is worried because she knows her daughter isn't getting enough…Continue

I gave up on my fitbit a long time ago. At first, I loved it (especially my sleep data), but after more than a year, it made me feel bad about my life. When I did not meet my step counts for the day, I felt like I let myself down. In the end, I recognized that the fitbit wasn't a good exercise accountability partner to get me to move more, so into the drawer it went.…Continue

My son's alarm goes off at 7:35. I can hear him get up, turn the alarm off and then...silence. I know he has gone back to bed. At 8 am, I tentatively go into his room and gently wake him up. He is cranky and angry and tells me that he feels like he didn't sleep at all. I do my best to be gentle with him and coax him into the day, even though I desperately wish I could send him back to bed for a few more hours.…

From a non-scientific, small study of my peers, I have determined that I have an abnormal relationship with my Mother. It's not abnormal in a bad way - it's actually the opposite: She is a loving, supportive woman who will give me advice when I ask for it, challenges me to be my best self and brings a richness to our family's lives. She is a dynamic lady.…Continue

Do you want to be edgy or even modern? There are a lot of drinkware nowadays that are designed to look sleek, modern, and even minimalist. However, there is also drinkware that celebrates the golden age, yes it’s definitely copper.
Not everyone is enticed with the idea of the future and what is new, sometimes, people appreciate what is old and what was great back then. The golden ages have shown women in the kitchen holing copper mugs and they look absolutely…Continue

My son and I are at the park and we've hit it at just the right time - there are about 30 other children already there. My son's face lights up and he spends the next hour running all over the playground with other children and eventually plays catch with a few of them. By the time he is ready to go home, he is sweaty and exhausted and can't stop smiling.…Continue
Between my wife and I we have two things that we are really passionate about. For very personal reasons those two things are mental health awareness and breastfeeding. We have supported each other through difficult times in these areas and there are lots of overlapping themes in the care for the two.
From experience I can say that the main thing that mental health illnesses and breastfeeding have in common are the need for support. Strong unconditional support.

My wonderful Mother recently took my son for the day. When I picked him up, he was very upset that he had to leave. Over the next few days, a series of stories about what they did in that one day together came out (played werewolf, had a pillow fight, played a concert on a keyboard, took care of the cats, checked out my Step-Dad's camera collection). The amount of stuff they did in that one day is almost staggering and I now understand…Continue
