Constipation in Kids Revisited

I originally wrote this post back in 2012. Posts that old tend to get lost in the archives or forgotten about by long time readers, or new readers have never seen them. So I plan on bring back a few old posts that I think are worth looking at again. AND… I’ve grown over the last 6 years in medical knowledge and homeopathic and natural options. Some of these medical advice posts are still great, but I certainly have more to add, so read on! Continue reading “Constipation in Kids Revisited”

Curried Lentils

I just found this!  I wrote this about 4 years ago and somehow it never got posted! So I’m going to post it now!  I do remember having these, actually!  But now to make them again!  Also the photo is actually from some lentil soup I made last night!  I couldn’t find the original photo. So if you make it, it won’t look exactly like this!

This evening I was late starting dinner and even then I had no idea what I was going to make. I was feeling very uninspired. I found some sausages in the freezer that I pulled out and had some potatoes in the closet that I cut up into wedges and broiled… but what else to have. That was definitely not going to be enough for my famished boys. I had some salad ingredients, but we are having friends over for a salad bar on Wednesday and I kinda need it for that. Hmmmm Continue reading “Curried Lentils”

Book Review: {Charity and It’s Fruits}

Charity and It’s Fruits

By Jonathan Edwards

This post is a little bit a book review and a LOT about our culture and love. WOW! Big topic, I know. But something I feel very passionate about. I used to think loving people was easy and simple. It’s really not simple and it’s actually VERY difficult! Continue reading “Book Review: {Charity and It’s Fruits}”

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease

I don’t remember ever getting this as a kid or any friends getting this, and yet now I feel like this has been a rite of passage for my kids generation. All of my children have had it and it continues to go around in our circles! Continue reading “Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease”

Sinus Infection

Hopefully spring is here and winter sickness and sniffles are on their way out! So maybe this post should be held until fall… but then, I thought… sometimes seasonal allergies can linger and progress into a sinus infection. So I figured I’d better arm you now before the seasonal allergy season starts, so that you can know what to do to help ward off an infection! Continue reading “Sinus Infection”

Baked Salmon with Spinach and Blue cheese with Lemon Sauce

Last week a dear friend and I got the rare (although would like for it to not be so rare!) opportunity to have a mama date and get dinner together! It’s amazing how much conversation can happen when kids aren’t running around under your feet! It was such a precious time to connect, share our hearts and encourage each other. I was SO grateful for the time! Continue reading “Baked Salmon with Spinach and Blue cheese with Lemon Sauce”

Book Review: {Eleanor and Hick}

Eleanor and Hick

By, Susan Quinn

I actually finished this book a while back, but it still sits vividly in my mind. I still don’t quite know what to think about it. I found it a fascinating read and about a woman I didn’t previously know really anything about. And shamefacedly the only thing I thought, was that she looked a bit frumpy for a first lady. What a judgement to make when I didn’t know her and hadn’t read a thing about her. Purely a judgement based on a few photographs I’d seen. Continue reading “Book Review: {Eleanor and Hick}”

Paronychia

It’s been a while since I’ve had one of these infections. My daughter however, gets them way too often. She is a ‘picker’ and is always pulling off scabs, peeling fingernails and the list could go on! Continue reading “Paronychia”

Teaching from Rest

Rest has been my theme this year. Not inactivity or laziness, but rest. Even in the chaos of life, the challenging and the difficult; to truly rest. I’ve worked hard to let go of the to do list more and not be married to my detailed plan for the entire year… page by page of each subject planned out. Continue reading “Teaching from Rest”

Teething

It’s been a while since I’ve had a baby teething! I had forgotten so much! But here we are!!! A baby teething again! It feels like it’s been so long ago!!! Continue reading “Teething”
