While I was growing up, my mom would often invest in a small wading pool for us so that we could swim in the backyard. A wading pool is a small pool that is usually a few feet deep and can fill it up with water so that you can swim…Continue

Let There Be Light

I think most people would agree that water is vitally important to good health. After all, our bodies are mainly comprised of it. And we need to replenish it frequently because it’s used by our muscles, organs and tissues and we lose water through perspiration and waste elimination. But while modern day society has embraced the concept of drinking water regularly, we have created a whole new set of problems for ourselves.
When I was a little girl, drinking water meant you needed a…Continue
I am new to this forum, but I am glad to be called a mom again. I am mom of 2, now fully grown and mature "children"; one of each sex, both equally "above average," to borrow the proud phrase from "Prairie Home Companion." Nowadays my grandchildren…Continue

If you've ever wondered where all the germs go to party, I'm pretty sure I figured out their favorite stomping ground. Just visit any given water park, and you'll surely find a whole gaggle of germ dudes and germ dudettes gettin' their freak on. How do I know this? Cause my family just spent this past weekend at one, and I've got the mental scars (and the super sexy fever…Continue

** Cruise control scares the shit out of me.
** When you travel with kids, it's a trip. When you travel without them, it's a vacation.
** 99.9% of the water at water parks is a combination of urine and ick. Probably.
** Trying to get your kids to sleep at a water park is like trying to get a nun to pole…Continue

Anna and I decided to go to my parent's house which is about 40 minutes
away and eat dinner and take our baths for the evening.
The spicy smells of Italian cooking on the stove tickled my nose as we walked in to my parent's house. Anna…Continue

I'm so excited to be giving away an Isabella Water bottle on my blog - this socially conscious company is awesome because the proceeds from the sales of the water bottles go to help fund well building projects in Asia and Africa. But beyond that, the water bottle is awesome. I'm totally in love with it. It's stainless steel, BPA free, toxin free, and hey - it's not plastic, so it's not going to make the Great Garbage Patch in the Pacific Ocean any bigger! Want to know another perk? The CEO…Continue
