Things I've Learned This Week

 

** 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…

The Mix Up

After I received the lovely email from my husband about the water heater being ready to burst, we decided to shut off the hot water for the rest of the evening until the repairman could come out and fix it.

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…

Isabella Water Giveaway - Plus the CEO is totally a hottie!

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…

Make Your H2O Exciting!

We all know the drill... for optimum health we need to 6 to 8 cups of water daily. According to Jegtvig (2010) "at least twenty percent of the water you need will come from the foods you eat. The rest will come from the beverages you drink" (paragraph 6). Unfortunately those 6 to 8 cups of water can get a little boring. Here's some ways to add some excitement to your daily dose of H2O....

Seashore Learning

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. (Yes, pictures like this one and that one are from that bee-u-ti-ful city.) But, in addition to my dear and loving family and friends there, it’s the ocean that holds my heart. San

Diego’s ocean simply beckons one to interact. And not…

Earth Promise: A No-Brainer for the Summer Traveller

June 1st, 2010

airport-water It’s hot and we need to stay hydrated. But to what expense? If you are an avid airline traveler, then you know the drill: guzzle down that $3 (and at some airports $5!!) bottled water before walking through the security check point. How many of you have actually tossed that half full (or half empty) bottle into the trash (or hopefully…

A Tall Drink of ... Basil!

One of my most favorite scents in the world is fresh basil. It’s so clean and crisp and natural … sort of like fresh cut grass, but better … because you can eat it. I have never been a big water drinker – I need some flavor in my beverage – so lately I’ve started flavoring my water with basil.…

out of town and I was home alone with the girls.yes""> Usually this stresses me out, but not this time. I was quite calm and was having fun with
my daughters.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall....turn around and hang on! My kids have been doing ‘Humpty Dumptys’ since they were 6 months old. Water safety is the first line of defense in keeping kids safe. They sit on the side of the pool and you recite the familiar nursery rhyme and help them ‘fall’ into the water, head above water first and then as they get comfortable they lean forward and fall under the water, then you help them ‘turn around and hold on’. Say the words over… Continue

Could you save Emily's life?

At a popular Australian pool last week, Matthew Kennedy, an 8-year old boy with autism, a severe speech impediment and learning difficulties, recognized that Emily, a 3-year old girl, was in distress. He jumped in, grabbed her arms, lifted her head above the water and pulled her out of the pool. Emily was unconscious and foaming at the mouth. Matthew’s father and the lifeguard began CPR, Emily began to breathe again and she was taken to the emergency room, still alive.



There are two… Continue

Benefits of Water and Important Functions

ody is estimated to be 60% water, which if you think about that in terms of your body as a whole- 100%-then 60% of your body being made up of water is quite a bit. In fact, that's downright a huge portion of what your body is made of. Water is essential to thrive, grow, and function in life. Without water, we would die. So many organs in our bodies are made up of water (the brain is 80% water!) that we simply need water for those organs to function properly and to their full… Continue
