Our Formula For Happiness


Becoming a new mom was one of the hardiest things that I had to do.  There is no manual and you really have to depend on your instincts as well as on friends and family members who have already experienced motherhood.  I always thought that it would be nice if they offered a course in college called motherhood and they would teach you everything that you could ever need to know.  But I guess since each kid is different, its important to learn as … [Continue reading...]

My youngest is 4 years old and now that I am expecting my 4th baby so many years later I feel a little anxious to what things are going to be like. I know that a lot has changed in four years. … [Continue reading...]

When they announced Ant-man, a marvel character who shrinks to ant size, it seemed destined to pale in comparison and ultimately be a let down. Much to my surprise, this movie with its tiny hero delivers big! The comic book super hero epics have … [Continue reading...]
