“I can see for miles because I have stood on shoulders of giants.” – Sir Isaac Newton
This is what we do for our chidren... And although, it may sometimes feel that our efforts are not appreciated, it wont matter much when we see our children grow their wings.

Many would argue that the first 5-years of life are the most developmentally important years in a persons life, both physically and mentally. Of course, as adults, we continue to grow and develop and become the teachers of the younger generation. The earlier argument is based on the idea that no matter how much education and experience you gain as adults, there is something about the teachings from those first years that have been imprinted on our DNA and is difficult to alter.

I am my mothers, still, I am very much my grandmothers child. I was willed this sense that elders are our angels on earth. I would walk behind my grandmother in the pouring rain carrying an umbrella if asked.

If you want to help your children build themselves, you must act without seeming to act. Through gestures, small words, and most of all through your own example, your children will gradually grow wings.

My little guy started teething and its the worst thing in the world. I dont know what to do sometimes and he gets so antsy cause I cant help him. I have tried orajel, teething rings and at times they work but
other times he just gets mad and goes on his marry way. He is so cute!
I guess its something we all have to go through and to be honest I am glad I am home to be able to take care of him and help him through this.
He is a true blessing in my life and I am blessed to he…

Wearing black instead of brown? Dont' worry about switching all your stuff to a new purse, just switch the shell and voila - instantly the right style! Want to see it in action and see what all the fuss is about? Check here:…Continue

Sometimes I don't want to admit it...sometimes, it just doesn't feel like it could be true...but, when I really look around me at all that I have...when I take a good look at myself and see all that I am, I can truly say the following words say it all. I truly hope they ring true for you,…

Ladies, what do you think? Do boys need men in their lives to have a complete male childhood? Would love to read your opinions about this. http://cilafiona.blogspot.com/2010/11/do-boys-need-men.html

After being out of work, and living on one income plus a small amount of unemployment, we decided that I needed to go back to work. Violet was older, she was more adjusted and a little less clingy. We decided to
give it a try - again.

If you ask your spouse to do something and it's not done yet, do it yourself. It's not worth the time and energy complaining or nagging to get the job done. Not doing the job because of the "principle of the thing" is a great way to put a crack in the bedrock of your marriage. This doesn't mean you have to be a doormat - just don't spend your time and energy on negative feelings, like stress or frustration that something isn't done. If you can't do it yourself without whining and…Continue

When it comes to choosing Christmas gifts for mom that can become a very daunting task. Your mom is the person who gave birth to you, fed you and changed your diaper; who held you when you cried and taught you how to walk and talk. It’s no surprise that you would want to choose the very…Continue

As a mom of two girls, I often wonder what drama their teenage years will bring. What will our relationships be like and how do I avoid the pitfalls that my own mother and I have experienced? The recent visit from my own mother made me stop, reflect and realize what an evolving and ever changing relationship mothers and daughters go through.…Continue

From what I hear from friends and readers, it's not so much that you don't want to make healthier decisions it's that you don't necessarily know how to. This fact becomes even clearer, when I listen to you order a veggie omelette that comes with extra cheese, a glass of whole milk, and…

When I had my second son, all the memories of little hands pulling at my hair, earrings, and necklaces hit me in the face. Taking showers was limited to the amount of time it took before my new baby would cry for a feeding. Makeup would have to come off unless I wanted to irritate my little guy's sensitive skin. And forget about perfume. But after a little while, feeling like a woman was something time decided to allow. And once I remembered how to be both a mom and…Continue
