An introduction to Universal Credit

A new benefit system known as Universal Credit will be brought in across the country in the next three years. It is a catch-all payment to cut down on the number of benefits into one lump payment. This may sound fantastic in its simplicity, but many people are unaware of what they are entitled to, and what the differences are between the current system and the new arrangements.

Breast cancer, which now effects one in every eight women in North America, 

has recently been linked to the accumulation of chlorine compounds in the breast tissue. A study carried out in Hartford Connecticut, the first of it’s kind in North America, found that, women with breast cancer have 50% to 60% higher levels of organochlorines in their breast tissue than women without breast cancer.  …

NEW Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Toothpaste and Spinbrush

I have been using whitening toothpastes since I was a teen. I know the types of food eaten can result in yellow, cream color teeth and I like coffee but I don't drink it often enough for it to have an affect (at least I don't think it should). I've tried whitening strips, gels, mouth wash, some…

Falling in love 101

When my son sees two people kissing, he often says, "Those two people are kissing and then they will go and get married." Evidently my sex talks with him have paid off. (Just kidding.) When I ask him about the leap from kissing to married, he shows me the various wedding pictures of my husband and I kissing right before we tied the…

Plagiarism: Practices that Gainsay Academic Integrity

Plagiarism is the name given to the act of lifting words or phrases, excerpts or sentences from another person’s creative work and representing them as your own without acknowledging the original source. Even if you are extracting idea or concepts from another person and using it in your own work without proper citation, the act would be considered as plagiarism. Plagiarism is treated as a serious offence in the academic world. More than a legal offense, it is an…

We Keep Moving.

Last night I had a mini breakdown. And what triggered it made me feel so guilty. I saw all of these beautiful pregnant mamas all over my Facebook feed. And that’s when it hit me: I should be 36 weeks pregnant. I should be glowing and happy and getting ready to deliver my baby in just a few short weeks via c-section.

August 19th. That’s when it was scheduled for...Continue reading at The Mommyhood Project

Another reason to reduce screen time

On Fridays I let my son take his LeapPad to school with him so that he can play it in the afternoons. This is the compromise I've come up with as the school shows movies on Friday afternoons. I normally would not have a problem with movie time, except that the school often shows movies that are PG and not appropriate for my son to watch.…

Starting an Avocado Tree

A few weeks ago I posted photos on my instagram page showing how beautifully my mother in law's fruits plants have grown. She has a papaya tree, avocado tree, banana tree, mango tree and more grown. There are a few others in their beginning stages. It only took about 5 years for some of her plants to start bearing fruit and I was thinking I should've started growing plants as soon as we bought our house. By now I would have…

Three Things I Never Expected My Mom Self To Be…And Yet I Am

Before you have kids, you have this vision of who you’ll be when you actually do have kids. You tell yourself that your kids will be perfect, you’ll always have fresh food on the table and sweets will be off limits. That you’ll never fall into the “frumpy mom” category, will have the smartest and most social kid in the class and your life will basically be one blissful moment over and over for the rest of your life, the end.

And then you become a mom. And that moment…
