I'm new to the world of giveaways and the majority of sponsors are saying no because of low traffic. I would agree. So if you can help me out by following that would be great. I am currently reviewing products used in my home and posting of other giveaway blogs (for my own chance to win ;) ) BUT am also trying to spread the world on cool gifts and gadgets. I'll follow back, it's what I do. Thanks!

No more "Summer School"- REAL school is keeping me pretty busy right now. It's always like that at the beginning. Fortunately, we had a quiet weekend at home last week, so Munch and I had another alphabet day. We glued cottonballs to her C letter collage-

Did you know your digestive tract is teeming with bacteria? Good bacteria, that is.
Probiotic is the term used to describe the billions of “friendly” live bacteria located in the intestinal tract. We are first exposed to bacteria when we are born and during infancy. The birth canal is full of bacteria that the infant swallows while moving through the birth canal. Then, the bacteria colonize the infants gastrointestinal tract and set the stage for a healthy immune… Continue

When I first saw these necklaces, I was a little skeptical…
Breastfeeding Magazine has found mom-run businesses with high quality and fashionable necklaces and jewelry that not only engage distracted children, but also get lots of compliments for mom!
Any mom knows that kids love to pull on necklaces, pull earrings, and basically pull on anything shiny. My son goes for anything he can pull on, even my hair!
But fortunately we have “Teething Bling.” The jewelry… Continue

Do you know many women who have breastfed their babies from birth?
A British study researched the link between medication given to women to prevent hemorrhaging after childbirth and breastfeeding rates for those women.
The drug oxytocin is commonly given to women after childbirth to prevent severe blood loss (>500 mL in 24 hrs.) known as postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). This can lead to fainting or severe anemia.
After a vaginal birth, the mother’s body must… Continue

Love Basketball? Wanna Take Center Stage in MSG at Half-Time?
When I was growing up in Westchester, NY in the 60's, my brother was regularly asked by my dad to go see the all-star, championship NBA team, the "New York Knickerbockers" (aka Knicks) play. Yes, those were the days of Walt Frazier, Dave DeBusschere, Earl the Pearl, Willis Reed, Senator Bill Bradley and other "dream-team" players of all time. When my dad would ask my brother, never considering that I would find basketball… Continue

As I see my children so young, so small, I never really think about the fact that they will grow up one day and leave me…Perhaps I choose not to think about it unconsciously.

How many times as a mother do you not feel like doing something that your kids would like you to do? There have been times that my kids will ask me to play a game, go swimming or hang and watch TV with them but I say “no” either because I’m too tired, too busy or too selfish with my time.
More and more I’m being internally prompted to stop, listen to what my kids are asking me to do with them and just act in a way that is opposite of how I feel. As I take that step forward and begin… Continue

Today begins a month of rememberance and tribute and committment to change and cures. I am also in the midst of the last two weeks of my last class of my degree program, so I will start off by re-posting my thoughts from a year ago. Thanks for reading and remember to wear your gold ribbon! Sadly we have lost several of the children I was referring to in this post and many more have joined the ranks… Cancer just keeps coming….
Bear with me on this one … I have run out of Kleenex and… Continue

This morning I dropped Keenan off at 7:15 a.m. to begin his high school career. What choo talkin’ bout Willis? Yes, somehow I am of the age to have a high schooler and my sweet baby boy has legs covered in hair, a deep voice and fears wedgies. I was specifically instructed to stay as far away from the Senior parking lot as possible when I dropped him and his friend off.
Senior parking lot? That’s your big fear? Because mine are drugs, alcohol, sex, heartbreaks, college, losing you… Continue

Okay, I've been debating whether or not to blog about this, but I can't put it off any longer, here it goes...
I want to talk about the babies that are dying every year due to being left in a hot car while the parent works. I'm not talking about the parents who go out partying or drinking. I'm talking about the parent who is on their way to work and gets sidetracked and forgets to drop off the baby at the sitter or day care facility. The parent that is exhausted and sleep… Continue

Just returned from the Table Talk event through General Mills and I had a blast. I could not believe I me Jennifer James. She is amazing. And she is such a great person to talk to and laugh with and learn from. Meeting her was definitely one of my high points. Along with meeting so many other great bloggers. I am truly happily exhausted!

If anyone is curious, I have posted a tutorial on a simple image transfer technique at ArtSnark.blogspot.com
Uses packing tape, a laser print on cheap paper, colored pencils, inked rubber stamp & gloss medium on a white marble tile.

Going Beyond the Soup (and the sandwich!)
Some kids may get tired of sandwiches day after day. Hot Lunches the school makes do not always cut it nutritionally or come close to a warm, home-cooked meal. The thermos insulates the food keeping it warm so they can still have some of their favorite foods from home in their lunch. And, don't forget about "Hot Re-Runs"! With all the leftovers from last night's dinner, lunch couldn't get any easier.
What's in your… Continue

The last week or so has been a nightmare for us. Toddler seems to be getting bigger and badder by the day. If he isn't screaming about one thing, he's throwing his toys and banging doors. I don't find it hard to tell him off if he's being naughty, it's more about being consistent. Sometimes I just let him get whatever he wants to keep the peace. It has been especially hard as I'm still breastfeeding baby girl which still takes up a lot of my time and he has clued on to this. I've tried a few… Continue

When I got my second call from Brevitt’s teacher, in a three day span, I hung up the phone and had to think for a few moments. Almost ten, Brevitt is becoming a calmer and less anxious boy and is learning how to respect authority. So why was he getting into trouble? I could understand the teacher’s fear that energetic Brevitt and his pack of friends were going to be the bain of his existence for yet another year but I felt the need to tell him to give Brevitt a chance and to practice patience… Continue

The only part I miss about being Catholic is the exquisite fashion show called Communion. No other church does Communion as well as the Catholics. Well, there is Project Runway, but that doesn’t count as a church as much as a cult following...[Read More Here]

I have always had issues with my weight going way back to primary school. I still remember being pushed over in the playground for being 'fat' or being teased because i wore a bra before anyone else (?)
Things didn't get much better in high school where I was branded as 'fat' again. I used to get teased by the boys more than the girls, cheap jokes about me being 'huge' or ' I wonder if that chair could take her weight' etc. I remember wearing a skirt one day and two girls… Continue
