    Prepare to behold one of the cutest things you’ve ever seen. Big T ha always loved to move to music. It’s one reason I decided to let him join his sister and I at Family Zumba, despite his young age. That’s where he first danced to Lil Jon’s ‘Turn Down for What’. Well, in the beginning he didn’t really dance, he stood there and looked at all of us like we were crazy. After a few more weeks of joining in with mommy, and practicing the moves at home with his sister, he stated to look forward to that song. My husband works out in the garage with the…

    Long story short? I stopped breastfeeding. But before people flip out about my accusation of the “calorie burning secret” failing me, let me explain. So something funny happens to me after I have my babies. You’d think after popping out infants each over 9 pounds, I’d lose a ton of weight, right? Wrong! Even though I nursed each of them for 17 months, breastfeeding seemed to keep me hanging on to (even gaining) the pounds, not dropping them. *Warning: If sweaty bra workout pics offend you, scroll down really fast now!* It’s weird. I left the hospital wearing the same size…

She has hoards of stuffed animals on her bed, so she wasn’t missing one less. I first noticed my son was growing attached when he carried it with him while we were getting in the car, as if he wanted to bring it along. I thought it was one of the sweetest, most endearing things I’d seen him do, so I let him hang on to his friend. He’s never seemed attached to anything…

    Growing up my parents drilled in us that we were to be respectful of adults and have good manners. We called adults Mr./Ms Last Name, answered yes ma’am/ sir, and always said please and thank you. I have found we haven’t been as strict with our kids so far, and there are some things we definitely need to work on. With our daughter we’ve taken to having her call adults either Mr./Ms. First Name or Last Name, and we’ll continue that with our son. Lil’ J was good and learned how to say “please” and “thank-you” at a young age. We had a little lapse in saying “please”…

These medications may be used alone or in conjunction with other types of assisted reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization…

    Ayurveda and homeopathy are similar in terms of their use of natural and herbal remedies. Even though Ayurveda is a much older form of medication which is almost three thousand years old compared to the much recent Homeopathy. The one reason that Ayurveda is preferred over Homeopathy is because Ayurveda compliments Allopathy where as Homeopathy is against it. According to the Hindu mythology this kind of medication originates from Lord Dhanwantari.

    9 Jan 2015 | 11:00 am
      1. The first day you make it through without puking. While the pregnancy books and articles like to make you think that you magically wake up on the day that you hit 12 weeks, completely cured of morning sickness, it doesn’t exactly work that way. Instead, you may find yourself cursing all the “what to expect” advice out there when you’ve passed well into the second trimester without a puking reprieve in sight. But I assure you, if you’re one of the lucky ones, there will come a day, somewhere around the 15-week mark, when you find yourself sitting down to dinner…

    Myths from the old days are still very much alive, in spite of modern science. We have looked at some of them, to check out if they are actually true. Myth 1: The shape of your belly reveals the gender For many centuries, the midwife predicted the gender of the child simply by looking at the shape of the stomach.
