No Poo

It feels to me like holistic living is a deep and slippery slope. One day your buying all organic, investigating labels, hunting out GMO's (genetically modified organism "foods"). You want to feed yourself and your family the best you can. Then your inspecting your non-stick pots and pans with a sudden sense of panic.

Perhaps a new whole house reverse osmosis filtering system might be in order....more

Becoming Mother

As I sit in our black Ford Escape. babies buckled into their car seats in the back. driving to Charlie's school. (obviously not while I write this, otherwise I would be the ultimate multitasker.

Why I Relay

You might have noticed on my blog a new badge which states "I am a Proud Supporter of Relay For Life; American Cancer Society." In June the women in my mommy group and I will be participating in The American Cancer Societies Relay for Life here in our city. We are hoping to collectively raise as much as we can towards aiding this organization and their mission....more

The Breastfeeding Room

The other day we decided to take a family trip here in New Jersey to the Liberty State Science Center. My opinion of which is that it is somewhat overpriced for what it has to offer but the money does go to a good cause and I am more than happy to contribute to education in it's many forms. So we are no worse for the wear. But this post isn't about that....more
