Book Review: Discovering You by Melissa Kean

“Discovering You” is an excellent read and I highly recommend it.  The book is a bit longer than most books and it is divided into three sections.  Once I started reading this book, I could hardly put it down.  It was full of twists and turns which kept the book interesting in its entirety.  The book took place during the winter of 1812 in Southern England in an area called Daleford Manor.  As the book begins, you will learn about Nicholas Davenport and his late wife, Marie, lived at…

Cavity Prevention Should Begin as an Infant – Baby’s Gum and Teeth Care

Taking care of your child’s teeth is very important and many parents don’t realize that you should begin taking care of them before they come in. When my son was an infant and we were at the doctor’s office for a well check, his doctor informed us that we should begin wiping my son’s gums with a wash cloth and water.  Wiping down his mouth and gums with a wash cloth will get him used to getting his teeth cleaned before he is ever introduced to a toothbrush.  I was a bad mommy and this…

March 17, also known as, St. Patrick’s Day.  If you didn’t put on green this morning, don’t be surprised if someone tries to pinch you or teases you that you didn’t wear any green today.  I remember wearing green as a child in order to avoid being teased or pinched at school.  However, there are a few other traditions that are popular on this Irish Holiday.  Some  of these traditions include: parades, leprechauns, clovers (shamrocks), the color green, and anything…
