When Anaphylactic Shock Happens at the Family Dinner Table

Do you know what to do if your child experiences a severe allergic reaction to food? Pamela Hutchins recently walked her readers through a scary experience with her daughter. As someone with a food allergy, it was interesting to be on the other side. I learned a lot watching Pamela learn a lot.

Couples Who Make You Want to Puke

You know who they are: the couples that make you want to puke. I confess, I'm half of one. And we work hard to be this nauseating. I mean, really, who wants to go around holding hands all the time? The effort involved in all this damn smiling — you wouldn’t want to take it on, I promise. ...more
You are so welcome -- let me know how it goes. Start small, work your way up :) @SlumberSteph more

Forgive my rant, but there is something really troubling me. Since realizing my son has a learning disability of some sort back in September 2008, I have been fired up about learning disabilities and how many children are crying out for help and are being overlooked. While I am still fired up about learning disabilities, I am obsessed with ADHD since my son's diagnosis of the disorder in November 2008. ...more

Way to go, Penny! You're an inspiration.

My Husband Likes My Fat

Every time I wear leggings, he expresses his dislike for them. I, of course, take this to mean that he thinks I look fat in them. Because why else would a man not like skin tight clothing on his wife? I convince myself the anesthesia-school-fat has gotten so bad, he now pities me. Only, he can’t bring himself to tell me I’ve been prancing around town for the past few months with legs that look like I cook my pancakes in bacon grease. ...more
