The Psychology of Color

Did you know that the colors you wear can stimulate specific responses in the brain? According to “Psychology of Color” on ThinkQuest.Com, you can trigger responses beyond the brain and affect glands and other organs. I knew my red suit had magic!



Before you pick out your ensemble for that power meeting or your dress for that special date, consider the following:



Orange brings about feelings of… Continue

Mom, Dad's a boy, he has a peanut!

"Mom, Dad's a boy, he has a peanut!" What you may ask yourself is my 2 year old talking about? Well, lets just say our 2 year old, like all 2 year olds I know,likes to follow us absolutely EVERYWHERE we go. This includes the bathroom, the shower, the closet... you get the picture, there is no hiding anything from this kid. SO, today I just need to take a second and share some of the Gabi-isms that make her so special. I may even make you privy to some of our Bella-isms. Here are a few from… Continue

Gratitude is an Attitude of the Heart

The holiday season is here and most of us are planning and preparing to make our family gatherings a time of joy and celebration. From meals to gift giving, once November 1st arrives, the rush is on and anticipation builds.



For some, it can be a stressful time, for others it is their most favorite time of year. Most years, I find myself feeling a bit of both. When I feel the stress beginning to take hold, I am always brought back to my childhood and the lesson my parents instilled in… Continue

Gloria Allred, Nick Lachey and Butterfly, Oh My!

We are on a high and it's not the kind of high we fear for our children. Terry and I have just wrapped up our trip to Los Angeles where we continued our commitment to delivering inspiring and empowering mom mentor videos. Our interviews took us to Gloria Allred's office where she revealed that she felt as if she were in the midst of a Tsunami as the Tiger Woods case reached its climax (no pun intended). We witnessed the softer side of Gloria that day, a woman who was overcome with feelings of… Continue

14 Not Forgotten



Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.



I was 18-years-old when the 14 women were gunned down. As an earlier adopter of feminism, I had already done much of the reading required of a budding feminist and had some very decent mentors in place.



When the Montreal Massacre happened, it rocked my young world. Twenty years have gone by and never have I forgotten that day. Throughout my life, I have… Continue

TIGER WOODS FOLLOW UP

This is a follow up to my previous Tiger Woods blog. Forgiveness is something we all need. Is that not true? I mean think about your worst transgression, now think about if everybody in America knew it. Know think about the person you are, and how you truly are not that worst trangression. You would not want anyone judging your entire life on your worst transgression. You are more than that. You are better than your worst flaw, your worst mistake. I think this needs to be said… Continue

Moving House







So we finally bit the bullet and are moving house. The thought of it is overwhelming – so much crap to be sorted, packed or purged. With six kids, I know you can imagine just how much crap we’re talking here. Adding further stress is the prospect of making our current house look nice enough that some other family will want to buy it.



Getting our house sale-ready will be a big job. My kids have left their marks – on the… Continue

My Trip to Singapore

I just got back from a very fast trip to Singapore, with a one day stopover in Bangkok. I have to say that Bangkok is absolutely one of my favorite places in the world! Amazing food, incredible massages and the nicest people in the world!



One of our favorite massage parlors in Bangkok, is Lek Foot Massage,. They are located right across from the Novotel Hotel and Siam Paragon Shopping Center. I discovered this place a few years… Continue

Hello from Singapore

Although I am still in beautiful Singapore with my Daughter “the Gymnast” and “My Rock”, I thought I should communicate with you prior to my return.



First, Singapore is beautiful and we are having an amazing time. I am so blessed that I can travel and take my children with me. We have decided that we will take each child on their own trip– so this was Gymnasts trip. My other two children also had their “on their own trips” It is a whole other world… Continue

Anyone Out There With Healthy Kids? Anyone??



As all you mamas know, once one kid is down, it’s just a matter of time before they all start dropping like flies. I’ve got a lot of flies, so things can drag on for quite some time. In fact, with so many flies, the whole little germ fest tends to recycle and the first kid who brought it into the house is starting round two of something while the last kid is just heading into recovery mode. It’s like a twisted game of germ tag.

You are the EX: Here are the rules

Forget dating rules. I now devoutly believe there should be Ex Factor Rules; a system of rules and guidelines that the EX must follow once he's screwed himself out of a great relationship.



I take a humorous approach to presenting a list of rule that all ex-whatevers should follow to maintain peace in the relationship.



Read the full list of recommended Ex Factor Rules in "You… Continue

AN ENCOUNTER IN THE BARN

I put my boots on and trudged through the new snow out to the barn to fax a 137 paged document to my mortgage company…. yet again.



As the cogs in the fax machine began to squeak I stood in Wade’s sacrificial office, which is the antithesis of mine, playing with the smoke that was emitting from my mouth and nose. For me he built a beautiful office, inside the house, with a huge window facing South and situated directly next to the kitchen so I can jut in and out preparing meals and… Continue

Halloween Tricks and Contest Treats

Halloween falls on a Saturday this year- what a bonus for working moms! No need to race home from work to take your children door to door. No need to feel guilty that you can't make it home until past dark. Halloween is on Saturday this year- what a wonderful thing! My son is of the age where he thinks it's hysterical to dress up like a cheerleader and actually convinced me to buy him the outfit. Pom poms and all. My daughter, on the other hand, had her mind set on being Hannah Montana which… Continue

Don't Dance in Front of Your Kid!

I've been asked to re-post this; while it's true that it's easy to scroll down and find it, my friend pointed out that new visitors to the blog might not do so, and another friend said they hadn't seen this one at all. So, since it's a favorite I'm going to repost it.



I also want to add one thought about why kids don't like their parents to dance in front of them. I touched on this in the comments section, but I want to elaborate. Dancing sexualizes a person (I mean, unless you're… Continue

The Shandle Review & Giveaway! (5 winners)

We are right in the middle of potty training and I was JUST thinking the other day how gross it is that the boy is always touching all over the potty to lift up the toilet seat. So when I got the opportunity to review the Shandle (toilet seat handle) I thought, "What a neat and functional idea!" Not only does it prevent "Easy" from touching the toilet seat, but its also a cute constant reminder to wash his hands! Love it! These even make great gifts! Here's what the website says about the… Continue
