Dinners have been much easier for me and I have made an asserted effort to add green to my plate! Not to mention, no second helpings......more

Sneaky Chat Test: The Vitamin Shoppe vs. Trusted Nutrients

  Recently my weight loss has slowed down to a stall, and I had to ask myself, what am I doing wrong? One of my first thoughts was, “Maybe I should actually start following directions.” See, right on the bottle it says, “Take one capsule with a full glass of water one hour before breakfast and lunch.” Do I do that?

The One the Teacher Warns the Substitute About: I'm That Kid's Mom

By Misty Van Staaveren Back when I was teaching Kindergarten, about ten years ago, I had this adorable little boy in my class. He was very young emotionally and seemed to lack any control over himself. He couldn't keep quiet. He couldn't raise his hand before blurting something out. He couldn't sit in his seat.

None of it was terrible behavior, but it was disruptive nonetheless. ...more
