Might you be willing to sign my online petition? I am encouraging 100 Black mothers to petition the EPA for strong toxics standards. Black kids suffer the most illness, emergency room visits and death due to asthma than any other group. Here's the info-- http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/Black-Mothers-Act/ Thanks so much!
Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time. I just love this site. The women are so embracing and I hope you are enjoying your experience as much as I am.
Glad you liked my Waussie site Kim! The Waussies have just arrived in the US and I'm off to Australia end of March to do store appearances there. Had a great review of my books from Mia at pragmaticmom.com. It's been a really amazing experience and I feel truly Blessed to be able to do what I'm doing. The best part is that I get the chance to teach children everywhere, to be caring, thoughtful and polite, and make others feel great about themselves!
Oops! I forgot the end of my comment to Kim. The challenge is, that they don't say "Please" or "thank you" and we don't give! Many of us already to that. But I know that sometimes, when your 3 or 5 year old's screaming and you've had it - it's so much easier to give in. I know. I've done it!
Thanks so much Kim. I was very impressed with your blog content. I feel so strongly about re-educating our children and going back to basics. In fact, I want to issue a challenge for all of us moms and grandmoms. When your child says "thank you", or "please" or shows gratitude, I feel it's the beginning of self-worth. Because your response, makes them feel good about themselves. And that, I believe, is where it all starts.
I now follow your blog and follow you on Twitter. I hope you will follow my blog too at http://momsrthebest.net, on Twitter @MomsRTheBest, and on Facebook at Moms R The Best. I look forward to reading your blogs and tweets.
