I know it has been a long while since I have been on here, writing and sharing and getting others to join the conversation. But I have a very good excuse: I am a working mom! I work a 50 to 60 hour work week, and then I come home and get the kids from […]
I am a bigger girl…. I have said this more than once in my life, but that is a nice way of saying that I am Fat, I am a fat girl, no a Fat woman! I am going to be 30 in a few days and I need to make a change. They say […]
I have never been one to really worry about skin care, even when I was a teenager dealing with zits and break outs. It was never high on my priority list, same with makeup. It probably because my mom never wore much makeup when I was growing up, or over showed me what her skin […]

Toilet Talks, Notes, Tips and Tricks from an Occupational Therapist in a toilet training seminar. I hope that you find help in all of this, I took the seminar because I have been struggling to toilet train my almost 4 year old for closing in on 2 years, and my daughter is starting to approach the age to attempt to toilet train, so when the opportunity came up to attend this I jumped at it, and this is a combination of their notes, my notes and fun graphics that took me forever to make….
