#ASKAWAYFriday With Teddy is MultitaskMomma

I started participating in #ASKAWAYFriday and I have enjoyed it. I love connecting with other bloggers and learning more about them. I wanted to participate in this blog hop because I don’t always share a ton of information about myself. I thought #ASKAWAYFriday was the perfect way for everyone to get to know me on a personal basis. For those who don’t know what #ASKAWAYFriday is, you exchange a set of 10 questions for another blogger to answer. Below are 10 questions that Teddy asked me and…

The Murder & Resurrection of Raggedy Ann

I love to pass down to my daughter things that I used to have when I was a little girl. It's like I'm sharing a tiny piece of my history with her.  For example, she has my old baby ring that she wears on a necklace, as well as some of my old baby clothes that she uses to dress up her stuffed animals.  And recently, she hit the ultimate jackpot when my mom came across my old Raggedy Ann doll up in the attic.  She was so excited to have…

Anti Aging Secrets That You Should Know

You have probably tried an anti-aging product one time or another. However, most people don't have enough knowledge about this very popular classification of skincare products. A study has found that Americans spend an estimated amount of $20 Billion on anti-aging products each year. This is the reason every company is coming up with their own product with the hope of getting a piece of the action. There are several hundred anti-aging products being sold today making it very difficult to…

No Filter

We all know that kids really don't have any kind of a filter when it comes to speaking their minds.  The thoughts just tumble out of their mouths like the trash rolls out of my purse when it falls over.  They don't mean to hurt your feelings -- they just call it like they see it.  For example, when they say I have a…

My Daughter’s Second Cochlear Implant Surgery

Today is the day that my daughter gets her second cochlear implant.  I have to admit even though I have already been through this same surgery 12 years ago with my daughter, I was still nervous going into the hospital and waiting for her to have her surgery done.  My daughter was born with a severe to profound hearing loss in both ears.  In 2001, she received her first cochlear implant only on her right side and at that time doctors typically implanted only one side.  Cochlear implants…

Will Adding a Second Cochlear Implant Improve My Daughter’s Hearing?

After my daughter received her cochlear implant in 2001, she has continued to have ongoing speech and language delays.  These delays are a direct result of my own personal decision to wait so long to  have her surgery.  Looking back, I would have done things…

Cochlear Implant Surgery Was Successful – My Daughter’s Story

My daughter was finally scheduled for her cochlear implant surgery after several months of procedures, tests, and evaluations.  I was very nervous going into this surgery because i knew that it would be several hours long.  Plus, she was going to have surgery on a very delicate area near her brain.  We were…

Wisdom Tooth Surgery While Awake

I’ve always been afraid of General Anesthesia and most anesthesia of any type.

So much in fact that I’ve had a colonoscopy, a uroscopy, wisdom tooth extraction, unmedicated childbirth – the list goes on and on – and no, I’m not tough, I’m not macho – I’m terrified of going under.

I’ve found that none of these procedures have been unbearable awake.

And though I’ve had a couple of wisdom tooth extractions, I’d never had an impacted tooth removed while awake, and frankly I…

I don't consider myself a fickle person, but unfortunately I have a bizarre tendency to adopt ridiculous fads once I've been exposed to them long enough.  Take capri pants, for…

Sari and Her Ray of Sunshine

There are certain people you come across in life who just always make you smile.  They are able to see the glass as half full and bring positivity wherever they go -- kinda like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day.  You can't help but to admire and respect these people cause they make you want to be a better person yourself.

 

My friend, Sari, is one of these amazing people.  I am in constant awe of her optimism, courage and strength.  She somehow juggles three kids,…

Botox: Cosmetic & Medical Treatments





Botox or Botulinum Toxin ranks number one in non surgical cosmetic procedures. It seems that Botox is very socially acceptable, like on the Real House Wives of OC, Alexis threw a Botox/ med spa party. I have never been invited to a Botox party, but I will RSVP “attending” in a heartbeat….don’t judge me. The frown line and wrinkle remover is used for medical… Continue

When Life Throws You Lemons...Declare War!

I had this writers block this morning, couldn't figure out what was on my mind, but felt the need to type out thoughts....then I'd just hit the delete key and start over, then it had to wait until after an appointment I had, that I hoped would go well. Sometimes life just throws you crap you have to deal with and even when you think of yourself as a well balanced person mentally and emotionally, sometimes it all just catches up with you in the end, leaving you with a box of tissues on the couch… Continue
