My son is sitting at the kitchen counter doing his homework. He is not crying about it, he is not upset and he doesn't need my help. He is quietly doing his homework. And, because I can't believe this scenario, I am also staying very quiet. But my head is buzzing:…Continue

I have a vivid memory of my parents installing a built-in desk in my room. It was a counter that was affixed to the wall, but I loved it. I thought of all the work that I would do at that desk. I made designer outfits with fashion plates and colored pictures and set up villages for my dolls there.…Continue

Here's the thing: I am very susceptible to yawning. If I see someone yawn in front of me, I am going to yawn back at them. And when I do, I really hope that they are not also susceptible to yawning, otherwise we have entered a very dangerous yawning…

Progress is inevitable. It is facts that today, most of us have phones with a greater capacity and capabilities than computers that sent the first man to the moon. Still, as in all things, it is not about what you have but how you use it that counts. Think of a typical teenage kid with a smartphone, it is true that that kid has an access to the internet, the most incredible data storage in the world, where he or she could find almost any information that they need, this is still probably not…Continue

When I was able to eat hot lunches at school, there were limited options. We ate the food that the kindly nuns made for us. Actually, I am pretty sure the nuns didn’t cook, but it was Catholic school, so you never know.
The point is, we didn’t have options.
But some schools do give children a choice in what they select for meals, which fascinates me. I can see the boys and girls lining up in the cafeteria, deciding between roast beef or spaghetti. Between carrots or tater tots.…Continue

A new study has found that women who co-sleep with their babies are possibly more prone to stress than those who don't.
I co-slept with both of my kids, and I could not disagree more.
According to a Fox News article, "Breastfeeding and co-sleeping with baby affects mom's welfare," the study followed 195 women in a Chicago suburb for six months…Continue

National Geographic and IBM joined forces in a global research project to chart the migratory history of us humans. The purpose of the project is to gather DNA from people around the world (like you and me) to study how our ancient ancestors migrated to where we are today. How cool is that!
I bought the…Continue

It's a beautiful Sunday here in Northern California and we're preparing to go to church. I have three ladies who want to visit my church for the first time and I get to be their ride. In Sunday School I'll be interpreting for the deaf and then in the main church hour as well. Tonight I get to watch as two of my deaf friends receive their certificate of completion in our discipleship program. I have had the honor of teaching them for 6 weeks and have… Continue
