Spooky Sugar Secrets

Posted by Stacey on 10/30/2012 to Mom Madness
It's that time of year again, Halloween, when all of the sugar hoopla starts. I cringe at the idea of my kids eating all of that sugar but know full well that the older they get, the harder it is to take it away. As a kid, my mom banned us from having sugar for about 2 years (shes just plain evil). My sisters and I talk about those painful sugar-free Halloweens and have vowed to never torture our own children like that. I'll admit it, Ive been tempted. This Halloween, I'll let them have their candy. These are some everyday sugar-loaded foods that I have been cutting out of their diets. This is going to make much more of a difference than a few fun size candy bars!

He's Just FUSSY! My Adventures with Sensory Processing Disorder

He's just FUSSY! My adventures with Sensory Processing Disorder.

Let's start at the beginning. My oldest son was the fussiest baby on earth. I'm not sure that it's a scientific fact but it certainly seemed that way at the time. Looking back almost 7 years, I wish I knew then what I know now. He had all of the signs of SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) however, just seven years ago, this disorder was way under a normal pediatricians radar. As an infant, his fussiness was attributed to reflux, colic and allergies. As a toddler his rough play and excessive tantrums were attributed to his frustration with delayed speech. At the age of 4, he had seen numerous developmental pediatricians and child psychologists and the only answer was SPD.

She's a psychiatric nurse and thinks everyone is crazy.

My mother-in-law and I have a very special relationship that involves colossal amounts of passive aggression (on her end) and patience (on my end). My husband is an only child from rural NY and I come from a huge family of eccentric French-Cajuns from New Orleans. You do the math.

To Vinegar or Not to Vinegar...That is the Question

If you have seen the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, you will understand the reference to my mothers vinegar obsession. The father in the movie is a Windex maniac and puts it on anything and everything. Well THAT is how my mother is about vinegar and that is probably why I cant stand the stuff.

Trash Talk

Posted by Stacey on 10/24/2012 to Green Living

I'm no environmental saint, but I can't help but laugh when people are amazed that I use cloth diapers. Have we gotten so consumed by our disposable lifestyle that the idea of washing and reusing something is so mind blowing?

Breastfeeding - The Unspoken Truths

Posted by Stacey on 10/23/2012 to Breast Feeding

I always knew I wanted to breastfeed my babies. What I didnít know was that the choice came with some surprises. After nursing three very different babies, consulting with 3 different lactation consultants and utilizing tons of other resources, I realized that breastfeeding education and promotion is missing some very important information. I feel like itís my duty to share some of the unspoken truths about breastfeeding in the hopes that women will be more prepared, and less likely to freak out and throw in the towel.
