Today is the beginning of a bittersweet year for this Mom. My youngest--the baby--is now in middle school. That alone is hard for me to grasp since I can still clearly see his bright shining little face declaring his need to go see "It's a Small World" at Disneyland. And my first-born, also a baby in my eyes, is officially in the 8th Grade--the last year of middle school--ready to embark on a few adventures during the year, spreading his wings & heading towards independence. I would…Continue

I agree that breastfeeding is the best for babies but it is not the only way. You have choice! Yes you have, even if everyone around you saying something else. I was going to breastfeed. I really wanted to do that. All my pregnancy (42 wks) I was preparing my self for breastfeeding. Unfortunately my labour was very stressful and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. All the time in my head was sound of my baby’s heart which wast slowing down. I don’t need to tell you how frightened I…Continue

The unique combination of technical abilities from surgeons makes every surgery successful. The doctors in charge of the surgery need a lot of training and knowledge on the consequences of careless treatment. With this kind of preparation, all surgeons need a lot of respect. However, some doctors do not take serious the treatment of the patients. Ignorance of the surgeons may lead to serious injury or death. Any mistake from the surgeon requires immediate correction…Continue

If you have been involved in a vehicular accident that involved a truck, you already know how painful and difficult it can be to return to the life you had before the accident happened. In fact, if you are like many accident victims that are involved in truck-related crashes, you might never regain the life you enjoyed before the event happened. The state of Washington reports that last year alone there were 44 fatal crashes in the state that were trucking accidents. Of this figure, 33 of…Continue

The reality is that in many instances, a qui tam lawsuit is initiated by an individual that harbors a grudge against the subject of the litigation. A competitor may tile a qui tam lawsuit to harm another professional or business. In other words, if a qui tam lawsuit has been filed against you, there may be no bona fide reason for the case. Nevertheless, you still must mount a powerful defense to protect…Continue

My eye doctor's office texted me to say that it was time for my annual eye exam. And I immediately set up my appointment.
To put this in perspective, my dentist and my regular doctor have also both notified me for an appointment. But I haven't responded to them. (I will, just not right now.)…

Whether a child is doing a poem reading, dancing a ballet solo, playing a musical instrument, or singing a classic ballad, recital night is bound to become one of the most memorable moments of his or her young life. It’s essentially a rite of passage for school-age children.

Now this post is less about the kiddos and more about Mommy & Daddy.
I've always been interested in "personality characteristics" and why people act the way they do. I think it sometimes has to do with how they were raised and a big part is how they are wired. Nature vs Nurture. Voila!
Hubs and I did the …Continue

Little Bear is 3 months old. It’s funny how difficult it is to remember a time without her.
Though she hasn’t been with us for very long so far it feels like a lifetime, in a good way. I mean, clearly, if I think about it I can remember before her and…

…is nothing to the joy of meeting again.
Reunited and it feeeels so gooood!
It’s back to school time here in VA. That means teachers are back in their classrooms tearing down paper and setting up bulletin boards. To be honest, the first week they are usually sitting in meetings and trying to figure out the expectations for the year, oh and reuniting with work buddies. Most of the time teachers are as excited to see one another as the…

Taking a toddler to a restaurant is really a crap-shoot. Sometimes he’s golden, others he wants nothing to do with it. Usually, if we can keep him entertained, we’re good. On the days he’s on point I feel like I should play the lottery. We usually choose venues that are: louder, don’t mind a mess and have chicken tenders. Yesterday, we met up with friends from work and some of their kids to surprise and celebrate one of our friend’s change from one school to another. She will be missed and…Continue

I had no idea the 2016 Summer Olympics would affect our life so greatly. Now I’m only being slightly facetious here. I love the Olympics and find myself a little lost now that I don’t have a new series of events to cheer for every night. Maybe I’ll get into bed before 1am now. Yeah right.

Every year thousands of schools in states across the US continue to go through the grueling process of compiling and printing school directories for parents. These directories include names and contact information of families, students and teachers and represent a valuable school resource for parents. However, the print directories consume significant levels of paper and ink products, a ‘tradition’ that is at odds with the School’s mission to ‘Go Green’.
The production and use of…Continue

Have you ever looked at your blog’s dashboard and whimpered to yourself, “Oh, I just cannot in any way, shape, or form write a blog post today?”
We have all been there, right? Or, is it just me?
After eight years of blogging I have whimpered that more times than I…

The False Claims Act has been used regularly since the enactment of the Affordable Healthcare Act, as the federal government has been investigating nearly every claim of fraud they receive. While regular healthcare fraud claims investigation procedures are still in place, the truth is that most of the tips are received either from disgruntled employees or business competitors.
