Children love popsicles! I mean love them! Shucks, so do adults who am I kidding? Growing up I have fond memories of the red, white and blue popsicles. Yes, the ones loaded with artificial flavors and dyes! Anni Daulter recently came out with a beautiful photographed book with health, easy and delicious popsicles you can make from home called,...
Nudity and every families comfort level with it are different. For some families it is normal for everyone to see each other nude (at least while the kids are younger). From showers to getting dressed it might not matter to some families. I know plenty of parents (mom and dad) whom shower with their young children and it is...
Forever ago I wrote about bleach and eczema and to this very day it is one of my top read posts with a high number of comments. Anytime I seem to talk about chlorine bleach there is uproar on both sides of the fence. Those that inhale the strong scent and like its disinfecting whiting super powers and those...
Once upon a time I was crafty and clever. I wore glue in my hair, had marker stained hands and glitter under my nails. I could cut the letters of the alphabet out of construction paper blindfolded and in less than 30 seconds (okay not really but close enough). Now I’m too busy and feeling far less creative in...

I feel as though I am often seeking out alternative remedies or at least exploring a more natural solution when my children are sick or need soothing. I've written a few times about using some kid-friendly remedies that I've found at my local health food store and the success that I've had with these solutions. Instead of using a...
The weather here is frightful with cold winds that blow through our warmest coats and nip at our nose making us shiver. I love having a large pot of soup on the stove for the aroma and warmth that it brings the family after sledding or shoveling. A family favorite handed down...
When the weather gets cold, one of our family's favorite things to drink is chai. Homemade chai costs so much less than the pre-made stuff, and it also makes the house smell divine. Chai actually just means tea in general, so saying "chai tea" is redundant. The best term for it is masala chai. Most chai is made with real tea,...
