Two thousand women travel each year from all parts of the United States and the world to Finksburg, MD to visit a man who has become the maven of tattoos with a specialty in nipples. Yes, nipples because as good as breast reconstruction surgery is, the nipple is still one area where they c..

Reflections from “The Bathing Grandma”

Posted on 05/21/2014 07:36:03 PM

I learned by trial and error. In fact one of the biggest jokes in our family is about the time I bathed my first baby. Yes, my new title is “The Bathing Grandma” because I know how to bathe newborns without making them cry. How I move and speak and handle newborns is automatic after moth..

10 things you need to say to your loved one's, right now!

Posted on 05/20/2014 12:29:14 PM

It's so easy to get caught up in everyday life, moments pass us by all the time. We barely notice anymore, sad really. With a whole bunch of life changes happening recently in my life, (and of course me being 40 years old), it has caused me to reflect pretty deeply. It's not without tears that ..

WE are Strong, But We Are Stronger Together

Posted on 05/16/2014 06:07:02 PM

My front door swings open, it's my teenage son. Backpack hanging off his left shoulder, shirt unbuttoned and a very blah "HI, I am home", comes out of his mouth. He is, so over it!  Shoes, jackets, wrappers, pencils, or whatever else is on his person, hit my front entrance floor as if he is a t..

I once mentioned that I was simply an ordinary mum, when the diningroom fell silent. “No, I am sorry, Mum, but you are definitely not ordinary; you are the furthest thing from a normal mother." I am a happy anomaly; a quirky mother, book lover, gardener and now a new writer. I was born an old sou..

Another Mother’s Day

Children don’t have it any better these days than the adults did when they were growing up. In too many instances, the kids probably have more stress and more new forms of abuse than anyone did previously. The one thing that we adults had going for us was that our parents understood that kids ..

Well Loved Animals

Posted on 04/10/2014 08:10:05 PM

We believe that kids need to relate to animals to grow up into well balanced, caring adults who can relate and feel connected to the natural world not just technological society. Michael and I love animals almost as much as we love kids. That love has been a powerful source of energy that has trans..

Living With Lots of Little People

Posted on 04/08/2014 11:20:16 PM

If I had to divulge one secret that I was fortunate enough to discover early in my mothering career, it would be, "Never let them get tired and never let them get hungry." There is a universal image stuck in our brains of a screaming toddler throwing a tantrum on the floor of a grocery store. Even t..
