Body Building and Babies: The Importance of a Feeding Schedule -

When Do I Feed My New Born Baby?

The subject of an infant’s feeding and naptime schedule is extremely important. It sets the tone for baby and the entire family’s peace and wellbeing. From day one, infants (and later, children) are looking for guidance from their parents for the 2 most basic and important activities in a baby’s life: Eating and Sleeping.

The Importance of a Feeding Schedule

Consistency is key to any diet no matter if you are 1 month old or… Continue

Under Construction But for Now ...

The Childhood Cancer Awareness page of my blog is under construction but for now I will mention that is donating all proceeds from their Oatmeal Raisin Shower Gel to Cookies for Cancer. This is an organization that was founded by a Mom and is making a difference in research funds! If you order today from… Continue

Babies Come On Their Own Time Frame: Notes from my "Baby" Garden

When a pregnant woman is in the last 4-8 weeks of her pregnancy, it can sometimes feel like forever before she will welcome her new little one. Moreoever, the physical toll a women's body goes through those last few weeks can be draining. However, having been through two pregnancies, each one completely different, I like think of those last few weeks in a totally different way.

I like to think that because God or Principle is guiding this idea, there is a right time for everything… Continue

Delights Of Summer

At first we only see their shadows zipping across the baseball bases, which are drawn in chalk on the driveway. Above us black and blue dragonflies circle our heads like little helicopters.

“I catch them!” Matthew shrieks and chases them up and down the driveway.

There are things I am looking forward to in the fall, i.e. harvesting pumpkins, chunky sweaters, and the smell of fresh fallen leaves, but at this particular moment I’m stuck in summer mode.

“Look at… Continue

W/W Raging Waters!!!

We recently went to Raging Waters for my Mom's B-Day! My mom loves anything with water so we thought it would be a different thing to do. It was a little crowded, but still very fun. I haven't been since a kid. Easy LOVED it. He jumped right into the pools and was so excited. Because I was worried about my camera I didn't get pictures of the rest of the gang. Naturally I had to get a couple snapshots of the boy. I hope to go back soon before the summer is over.…

The Human Antenna

Ever since I was a young girl, I knew I was built to be a human antenna. I receive signals very easily. I prefer this word to the word 'sensitive' because when you say someone is sensitive, they see you as someone who gets hurt when you tell them that their ears stick out. Mine does, so don't tell me that. I deliver sucker punches.

Anyway, as a kid, you're a bigger antenna than when you're bigger because you're grown-up, you can't act like a kid who kicks people in the b-lls when… Continue

My Little Drama Mama!

My Little Drama Mama!

August 20th, 2009 | Author: Kathy

Please excuse this late and short update. The day has totally got away from me and here I sit at 12:30 in the morning typing away. I am becoming more of a night owl every day … errr … night!

Anyway! Thank you for the skeenteenth time for all the love and support that is always sent our way. May none of you ever need to know how important it is to have this holding you up, but trust me … it is… Continue

flank steak and arugula salad

I am sure you have all noticed that my recipes are mostly light and healthy. I tend to eat that way in the summer as I live in sunny southern California and am in a bathing suit every weekend. It sucks to be me, I know.

This fall however, you will see a dramatic difference in my recipes. I am from Indiana. Comfort food is my middle name and I can only be parted from it for so long. As the leaves change, look for my recipes to become… Continue

Stop The Beeping

Let me just start off by saying, I live in an apartment complex and I love my beauty sleep. I go to bed anywhere between 8:30pm and 9:00pm and get up when my alarm goes off at 5:30am.

At 4:50am I hear a beep and I choose to ignore it hoping it just goes away. beep.....beep.....beep. I can't make the beep go away in my head, all along thinking it's the resident's upstairs alarm clock going off. The man upstairs usually leaves early in the morning, but I continue to hear the beep, it's… Continue

My Dear Payton,

I love you so much. I know you were in pain especially your last day here on earth. I know you are in a much better place now.

You changed my life. I never understood the love people have for their dogs. I never thought I would be one of THOSE people. I didn't want my house to smell like dog. I didn't want fur on my cloths. I didn't want anything to do with getting a puppy no matter how cute.

We met you at 4 wks old and brought you home at 8 wks.… Continue

Caring Hearts

We recently celebrated our 37th birthday here at Dillon. In 1972 our organization began by finding homes for 100 orphans from South Korea. We have grown and expanded since then, but our heart for the children has never wavered. To help with that mission several of our Caring Hearts groups held fundraising events in honor of our birthday. You can check out the photos (and learn more about Caring Hearts) at We raised almost $900 which will be used… Continue

The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Back in my teaching days, whenever my kindergarten children were having a crummy day we always pulled out Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Through story and illustrations Viorst and Cruz perfectly portray the emotions felt on those days when nothing goes right. Yesterday was that day for me. So here it is, my own Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

My kid woke up at 5am screaming and wouldn’t go back to bed.

I could… Continue

Board Books

Board books were originally created with a specific purpose in mind. Unfortunately, in recent years this purpose has been lost and publishing companies are cashing in by printing books intended for older children into board book form. I find this incredibly frustrating.

So here is my plea: let’s refocus our attention on the original intentions of board books. Let’s start with what board books are not. Board books are not miniature versions of other children’s literature. Kevin… Continue

Healthy Choices

Looking at the list of ingredients on a box of Gerber Graduates Cereal Bars I was surprised to see high fructose corn syrup listed as one of the first ingredients in both the crust and the filling. On the back cover of Nutrition Action Healthletter, one of my favorite sources for nutritional information, there is a section called “Food Porn” which highlights some of the worst foods you can eat. If I was to create a list entitled “Baby Food Porn” Gerber Graduates Cereal Bars would be high on my… Continue

New School Year

Just wanted to say to all the moms with children going back to school this week congratulations! Some of us have been looking foward to this day for a while but when it's finally here we feel somewhat sad. My oldest did not want me to drive him but he wanted to take the bus instead. I have been taking him to school on the first day for the past 5 years and now he is so independant. I think he saw my sadness because now he has changed his mind and I will be taking him. He made my day! To all the… Continue

Here is a short little bit of info about the online Baby Gift Business I have set up. I'm a Mum who works from my Studio at home in Ruthin, North Wales. I had the idea of starting my own online Baby Gift Store when I had Izzy my beautiful little peach of a daughter 21 months ago, and set the ball rolling. Then in Feb 2009 I lost my job due to the 'Credit Crunch' and knew that it was now or never. I did try and get a local grant from the Council to help with the funding of my new venture but to… Continue

Worry, vent, release

Today was not a great day. Nothing severe or life changing happened. Just not a great day. I am sure most of it had to do with the date, August 18th. This would have been our 19th wedding anniversary if my first husband had beat the cancer that eventually took him and left me a 29 year old widow. Then I think about how blessed I am to have had two chances with men who have loved me so much. I would never have been blessed with the three little people I am Mommy to now.

This is how… Continue
