Oscar de la Renta Contest – Act FAST Ends Sunday (12/9)! Thumbnail Oscar de la Renta Contest – Act FAST Ends Sunday (12/9)! Thumbnail

When I had my sons, I imagined them all dressed up with little suits and ties. In my mind they were always impeccably dressed and well behaved. Of course that was a fantasy... or at least part of it was! They may not have been the most well behaved - As the saying goes, boys [...]

Before the birth of my youngest son, I had two miscarriages and an abortion. That pregnancy haunts me to this day. My son, my precious child, would have been 12. During that pregnancy, I was placed on partial bed rest. I was high risk. My body had so much trouble holding onto my boys. Yet, this pregnancy lasted [...]

Recently a 2 1/2 year old boy made headline news. To the dismay of his parents, he had not only joined a growing trend among children, he held the distinction of surpassing most of the others. What gave him that distinction? 11 cavities and one root canal. Can you imagine the trauma? The needles, the [...]

First Born, Postpartum Depression, and Empty Nest Syndrome Thumbnail First Born, Postpartum Depression, and Empty Nest Syndrome Thumbnail

Today my man child turns 17. I can't believe time has flown so fast. I never knew how wonderful, frustrating, exhilarating and annoying motherhood could be when I had him. I so long to hold him and never let him go, which is so unlike me. When he was born, I refused to see or hold him. [...]
