I just received some devastating news. My son informed me he is not going trick-or-treating this year! It was bad enough when my daughter stopped.
I’m having déjà vu. This reminds me of how I felt when my daughter was 2-1/2 years old and I learned that naptimes didn’t last forever. Ridiculously, it had never occurred to me that my child would actually grow older and not require that down time any more—regardless of the fact that mommy still… Continue

All over the world mothers would unite and latch on their children at the same time — what a great idea to promote breastfeeding!

Do you even know what it’s like to let everything go, not care and worry about responsibilities anymore? Sometimes, when you take a good look at your life, do you sit there and wonder how amazing it would be if you could be a kid all over again? Kids have the best lives ever! They need to know that and I tell my kids all the time - that they need to be carefree and not stress out about minor things.
One of my kids refused to go barefoot and sit down on the grass while licking his… Continue

Children today drink twice as much soda as they did 20 years ago, averaging as much as 20 ounces a day! A large soda not only provides tons of calories and sugar but it also includes at least 100 mg of caffeine.

We also see many families hitting the local café or Starbucks for a café latte or mocha frappuccino loaded with the burst of ‘energy’ we call… Continue
