Making Math Fun

It is a worry of mine that my children will struggle as I did with arithmetic, geometry, and algebra. Yet, a lot of the struggles can be avoided with a few points to consider. At a Math is Fun event hosted by Dads Do Good and sponsored by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (a Boston-based company), I listened to […]

Mom Pressures

Last week, there were two posts by other Bloggers that really resonated with me, and I wanted to pass them along. The first post was from a Mom of nine children to a Mom of one child. I saw it tweeted and retweeted on Twitter. The writer mentioned when she tells people she is the […]

Pregnancy Symptoms

Dealing with pregnancy myths is one thing, dealing with pregnancy symptoms is another. You know those times when you wake up and wonder where the heck you are?

Pregnancy Myths

When you’re pregnant, there are a lot of pregnancy symptoms, but it amazes me the misinformation people wish to impart on you.

Sequenom MaterniT21 DNA Test Review

In the past 10 years, there has been copious amounts of genetic research. In fact, when I worked in the Massachusetts Legislature, I assisted in the amendment of a law (M.G.L. Chapter 151B), to provide genetic protections for individuals since genetics would be playing a large role in medical care in the decades ahead. One area […]

Are You Pinning Yet?

Pinterest has been tapped to be the big break out star in 2012. (Eh, hope the same can be said of me.) So what is it? Here is a recap of a convo I had with my 85 year old grandmother, who goes online and uses email, so she thinks she is pretty techy. Especially […]

Video Success in 2012

In the 1980s, “video killed the radio star“. According to a lot of posts in the Blogosphere this week about how to be a successful Blogger, video may propel you to being a blogging star in 2012. Great posts came from Blogger Jennifer James of Mom Blogger Magazine where she shared her 15 Mom Blogging […]
