Back in 1952, Ohio’s Cuyahoga River caught fire and caused $1.5 million in damage to Cleveland. The city’s industrial revolution had taken its toll with the oil and debris clogging the river and igniting on a regular basis. When the river went up in flames yet again in 1968, the situation gained national attention. The Cuyahoga became a poster child for early environmentalists.…Continue

Okay, it may not always work as planned, depending on your audience. But I can tell you it will make your headline click-worthy. It doesn't have to be graphic either, by the way. Just suggestive. =)
PR is EXPENSIVE so anything you can do on your own to generate buzz will reduce your burn rate. You can pitch editors yourself but if you don't have a hook, they don't have a story. The surest way to get a response is to give them the whole setup. If you can't hook an editor, you won't…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who completely understands the need for school fundraising, but hates it just the same. During our first year enrolled in a public school there has been a fundraiser of one sort or another happening every month, whether our children are being asked to peddle wares from a catalogue or participate in a hoola-hoop marathon, there has been no lack of fundraising activities.
This list consist of my top 5 reasons I loathe school…

I cannot be the only one...who wonders if removing any real discussions of religious holidays from our children's public schools, in an attempt to not push religion and/or not create an uncomfortable learning environment (I'm not really sure that either of these are the reasons), is limiting our children's…Continue

I couldn’t believe some of the posts that I have seen where people were bashing nursing mothers for choosing to breastfeed her baby in public. Most of the posts that I saw said that breastfeeding was gross and they were complaining that they were offended because they saw a mother breastfeeding her baby in public (mostly in restaurants). When we were created,…Continue

A few months ago we purchased a potty seat for my son, he was starting to show interest in potty training. He has been watching other kids and following us to the restroom for a few months now. After I purchased the potty seat a few months ago, I tried putting my son on the potty. I knew that it was still a bit early and didn’t quite show all of the…Continue

It never fails. Every shopping trip, as soon as my kids notice the "Restroom" sign at a store, they suddenly have "go to the bathroom badly"! I have two boys, so it's supposed to be easy right? Wrong! My 4 year old has asked for privacy before. Thinking he was just going to stand and handle his business like a "normal" guy, I found him undressing himself completely, because he's more comfortable going to the bathroom naked. Goodness, we're not home! Sometimes he sits, sometimes he…Continue

. . . was the question from the very irritated and judgmental man who almost ran my children over in the Target parking lot! “YEEEEEEEESSSS!” was my defensive and embarrassed response.

You know you're up a shit creek when your kid comes out of a public bathroom after ten LONG minutes and says, "Uh, can you come in here and help me, Mama?" You might as well just take a deep breath, roll up your sleeves, and prepare for the worst. I speak from experience because I dealt with this very same scenario over the weekend when I secured my status…Continue

Earlier this week, I was waiting to pick up my son from preschool and in addition to my two year old, I had In the car with me my brother-in-law. Apparently, it was quite entertaining for him to see me putt my makeup on while we waited in the parking lot of the school. He said something like "Man, you will just put your makeup on anywhere, huh?" My immediate thought was "Uhh, yeah...why not?" Then I starting thinking that maybe that is a weird thing to do. So I made…Continue
