When I was young, I remember driving somewhere with my parents on the freeway.  I saw a family with kids playing under the freeway overpass.  They weren’t just hanging out – they lived there.  I remember feeling so sad at the hunger the family must be facing, especially the kids.  After that experience, I volunteered […]...

When I was a young girl, I remember riding in the backseat of our car on the freeway with my parents.  We were approaching an overpass and I immediately noticed figures out of the corner of my eye on the side.  There were people with tents camped out under the freeway overpass and the children […]...

I taught my child the importance of oral health care with LISTERINE® SMARTRINSE, as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #besweetsmart.  With 6 children in our home, it’s important that we set morning and nighttime routines.  In the mornings, they have “chores” that they complete.  These chores include brushing their teeth, brushing...

Last year I wrote about “Living with Multiple Sclerosis” and I left off needing to go in for more tests. Well, these last 12 months have been an emotional and physical roller coaster for me. Going into my annual appointment with my Neurologist, I was feeling great.   She said “you’re too healthy,” normally I would […]...

I remember how excited I was when I took my oldest son to go shopping for soccer gear.  I was officially a soccer mom.  Brian was super excited about his “chin” guards, new shoes and ball that he could kick all around the yard.  He was even more excited when he got his official uniform! […]...
