First Years of Marriage

z

My husband and I are coming up on our one year anniversary in September.  On any given day, we get asked two or three times “When are you going to start trying for little ones?”.  We were lucky enough to be the last of our friends to get married, and are able to see everyone else have kids first.

40th anniversary of the moon landing

Monday, July 20, 2009 A special ceremony was held at the White House today as the US celebrates the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing.

According to WebMD, “It is not necessary to eat […] Read more »

A Weighty Issue – Part One

A Weighty Issue by Marcia Ellett (July, 2009) Weight is a sensitive subject for many women even when they’re not expecting.

Nuture with Nature — Part 2

Nurture with Nature (Written by Marcia Ellett — July 2009) Part 2 And nature scenes on your TV set don’t count. As far as reducing stress goes, that appears to have no more effect than sitting your child in front of a blank wall. Peter Kahn, a University of Washington associate professor of psychology confirms: “Let’s not be fooled into thinking we can live without nature. We are losing direct experiences with nature.
