"Sanale, sanale, sanale, ya!*" Loosely translated to, "Heal him, heal him, heal him, now"   I can still remember my Mamí saying these words to me when I was sick. She said these magic words as she massaged my arms or back, repeating them over and over until I fell asleep in her arms. Now [...]

4 Tips to Build Good Dental Habits In Children #healthyhabits Thumbnail 4 Tips to Build Good Dental Habits In Children #healthyhabits Thumbnail

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 [...]


  After more than 35 years, Winnie the Pooh hit theaters on July 15, 2011. As an adult, you would think this wouldn't excite me but it did! I love Pooh, Tigger (my fave!!), Eeyore, Piglet, Owl, Rabbit, Kanga and Roo and all their other friends in the Hundred Acre Wood's. I have to admit [...]

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. [...]

As a mother of a 9 year old, I know how boys can destroy clothes.  My son can get down and dirty, [...]

Children are not Mini Adults Thumbnail Children are not Mini Adults Thumbnail

Image: Simon Howden / My sons are pretty mature for their age. I don't coddle or baby them, not because I don't want to, but because as a single mother, I don't have the time.  I never realized just how much I treated them like mini adults until recently when I was talking to my youngest. [...]


I was recently offered the opportunity to review a Tonka Mod Machines System DX9 PICKUP Vehicle. I almost declined the offer believing Andrew, my 9 year old son, would not enjoy it. However, after I gave it more thought I decided to allow a friend of mine to review it. She agreed and told her [...]


I grew up watching Sesame Street. I learned how to say my números / numbers with Count Dracula, learned to share my room by watching Ernie and Bert,  learned it was ok for a niñita/little girl to get angry because of Oscar the Grouch (my fave btw) and so much more!  They were my panas/my friends. They [...]
