I now have an empty nest.
Last week I took my youngest child to college and helped set up her dorm room. It was an exhausting and hectic experience but a very productive day, to say the least.
My son is a senior at the same university. He moved back into his apartment on the same day that we moved his sister into her dorm room.
I came home to a completely empty house. For the first time in my adult life, my home is empty. My children are "grown."
I am happy… Continue

Yes. It’s been hot here.
No. This recipe is not altogether organic.
Nor is it superbly healthy, complicated or beautiful.
But beware if you’re pregnant, hungry, or looking for a quick-filling meal on a hot day. This one takes but a few moments to prepare and requires no patience at all. Unless you don’t have access to Fritos (or some similar corn chip). Do not ask me how many of these we consumed while I was pregnant. Glenn should be a big fan. Just… Continue

The second day of our visit to my girlfriend’s farm we spent at the local pool. For such a small town in the country, they have a very sophisticated pool with tons of water features, and the boys were in and out of the water for four hours. Since I didn’t have a bathing suite and had just burned my skin to a crisp on Nantucket
, I was in no mood to swim, so Karen “swam” with the boys and I took… Continue

Here we have a perfect example of how certain food products get labeled unhealthy, when all the while they are extremely healthy. Many people mistakenly think that the egg yolk is bad for you and usually discard them. Wrong. The egg yolk is the healthiest part of the egg with huge nutritional value and properties that help with shedding pounds.… Continue

Every few months I get these cravings for sweets. I’m not a big-time sweets-eater. Not sure if it’s because my mom didn’t feed us many sugary foods while we were young or if I wasn’t wired to love desserty foods…but back to my point, every few months I can’t seem to finish a meal without salivating for a sweet bite afterward.
That’s been my life this past week. Continue

To caress tenderly .. to listen openly ... to speak softly .. these are the things we do so naturally when a child is born. That inner need to shower a baby with love and affection, protect and nourish them is so natural. Bonding awakens our keen ability to sense a wide range of discomforts, enabling a mother to understand when her baby is hungry, needing a nap or a diaper change. Bonding is priceless. Our little tots grow up way too quickly and… Continue

The best parenting help in the world would be if each toddler came with an individual owner's manual to assist parents in the trying times of toddlerhood. Sure there is plenty of helpful advice out there from other moms and dads and professionals, but every child is different, with a different temperament so usually parents end up on a trial and error basis when using parenting help to assist in raising their toddler. Much of parenting is trial and error and not giving up until you find the… Continue

I spent my day yesterday with a bunch of mommy bloggers, and unexpectedly, it was well worth it. I attended a panel and Bloggers Brunch produced by mommy marketing guru Stephanie Azzarone, president of Child's Play and author of Mom Market Trends blog. I admit I had less-than-high expectations, as despite the fact I am a "Mommy Blogger" myself, I was not sure I would learn anything from these women.
I had a bias against mommy bloggers, relegating them in my mind as women who gab… Continue

The word "empowering" is floating around the parenting community quite a lot these days. When asked, most parents are in favor of it.
When you speak to parents about educating their children about the principles of the law of attraction, most are in favor of it.
Parents love the part about their children thinking positive thoughts, choosing positive actions, and being grateful for what they have in their life. However, as you go further into the meaning and purpose of… Continue
