Shots hurt and kids don’t like them. So instead of continuing to force little ones to endure the pain of the occasional prick, pediatrician-mom Dr. Amy Baxter developed Buzzy. It’s a bee-shaped, palm-sized device that uses cold and vibration to distract kids from shots. All you do is place Buzzy near the place where the shot is occurring and voila—instant pain distraction! Hospitals nationwide are using these devices. You can see them at...

Young Love

This weekend we went up to my cousin’s cottage as we often do. But this weekend was different. My kids made friends with a brother and sister (Daniel and Jessica about ages 10 and eight) and it all started with a friendly game of Frisbee in the lake. I enjoyed watching them play with their new friends in the water and on the sand. It was so cute to see them all sharing their toys and snacks with each other. On our second day it made me...

Pool Safety

Summer is here and those with a backyard swimming pool are the lucky ones. What a great way to cool off and enjoy the great weather.

Most injuries occur through negligence, lack of supervision, a child slipping in the pool, entrapment hazards such as ladders, diving boards and filtration systems. Here are some safety guidelines to prevent pool drownings...

Wrinkles in Time

I clearly remember my first wrinkle. I know that sounds odd, but I was sitting in the back of a taxi in Mexico in my early twenties, and noticed my reflection in the rearview mirror. I had a wrinkle on my forehead just above my right eyebrow. My facial expressions have never been subtle, and friends always warned me that I should be careful not to show my surprise or dismay in quite such an obvious manner, or else I’d get wrinkles. I figured...

Mommy First

Took the morning off work for me. Shock! Dropped my toddler son at daycare and came home to write. Horrors! Happily danced around the house with music blaring like a teenager. Guilt! Guilt! Guilt! Since becoming a mother, I often hear phrases like: “You must put yourself first, or you’ll have nothing to give,” or “take care of yourself so you can take care of others” and “take time every day for you.” These phrases make me laugh...

Moms and Tattoos…Trendy or Trashy?

By: Tara Weng When it comes to tattoos in general, nearly everyone has an opinion. But when it comes to moms and tattoos it seems to take on a whole new meaning. “If done discretely and tastefully, they can be quite sexy. The face, neck, breasts and buttocks should never be tattooed,” says 38-year-old Adam. New mom Kristina has her son’s name tattooed on her wrist. “I love it and so does he. I think tattoos are a great expression...

Have Babies Will Travel

I am not exactly sure what type of drug I was on when I agreed to a five day trip with the hubby, 6 children under 13 and twin newborns.  Not only would we be at a beach (yikes all those children and water!) but we would be staying in a rustic old cabin. (I have never been an outdoorsy type) and then there is the small issue of the Thatcher and Tanners schedule – okay earth muffins stop right there!  My first 6 children really never had such...
