Many of us grew up thawing frozen meat on the counter and keeping leftovers far too long. Times have changed. Now that I’m a mom, I make an effort to serve my family only food that I’m sure is safe. The USDA has food safety recommendations to help us keep our families safe from the […]

How Do You Juggle It All? Cleaning Tips from a Working Mom
During my first pregnancy, I daydreamed about peaceful days spent strolling through the park or rocking a sleeping infant in my arms. While I love being a mom, my life is more chaotic than I’d envisioned. I have two young boys and work full-time outside the home. The competing demands of children and clients mean […]

Now that kids are back to school and life is in full force it’s totally time to get down to business with the meals.

How to Relieve Teething Pain
Finding a teether that works can seem elusive because your baby’s preference will change as he progresses through different teething stages. I spent a lot of money testing different teethers when I was a new mom only to find my baby didn’t like most of them. With my second, I was fortunate enough to receive a complete set of MAM Teethers.

Peppa arrived in the US last year, quickly becoming a hit with US audiences. And now her toys have arrived at Toys R Us!
Almost Naked Animals Volume I DVD Review
I had never heard about Cartoon Network’s quirky, animated series, Almost Naked Animals, until I received an inquiry asking if I’d like to review the first season, which will be available on DVD starting September 25, 2012. Almost Naked Animals features an ensemble cast of underwear-clad animals, based on the quirky designs of Noah Z. Jones. The pack is led by Howie, the good-spirited but hospitality-challenged doggy manager of Banana Cabana, a beach-front hotel. Since I’m a fan of many quirky cartoons (Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, Archer and more), it looked like something that would appeal to my odd sense of humor.
Swim with Friends and Help Aflac Fight Pediatric Cancer
I have been an administrator for a non profit organization called The Believe Box which sends gifts to children with cancer, for the past few months. This has given me the opportunity to see how widespread pediatric cancer is. I have heard of many children recently diagnosed in my area, and hundreds more through facebook […]
Whiten Your Teeth for Less With Arm & Hammer
When I see the celebs on TV, I’m sometimes blinded by their shiny, white teeth. Since I love coffee, red wine and many foods that stain teeth, I’m a bit jealous of their smiles. Cosmetic dentistry is very expensive, and whitening strips make my teeth feel sensitive. What’s a mom to do? I’ve tried whitening […]
