The Great Diaper Detective

I have seen the diaper and it is nasty. There is more than just ick in that diaper. There are significant signs of your child’s physical and mental health. Yes, I know what to look for in the mess. What is healthy and what is trouble. My kids and I have significant GI issues. I have…

At the Hospital Testing Today

Today I am getting a MRI and an EEG. New neurologist new tests. There is a gloomy theory that I am having a series of stroke like episodes and strokes rather than increasing seizures. One step forward into the brightness and the newness of spring and then a stumble. Though frankly I don’t feel any huge…

When I Love You can’t be said…

 Your children will arise and call you blessed! Proverbs 31:28-29  Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:  “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” My heart goes out to the mom’s today in a special situation. Your child might not be able to say I…

Hubby Lost His Job but We Found Something Special

Homeschooling parents should be in the most active time of life. Lots of things going on right now and lots of life and milestones ahead. Watching our children graduate, fall in love, married, hopefully be blessed with their own family some day. How ever brilliant and golden that sunny someday maybe it is not one I will…

Needing Hospice in the Prime of Life

Today I wrote about my experience with doctors and hospice as a 30 something mom on my mito blog, www.mitofamilies.blogspot.com I have found that being a young woman/ person needing hospice means I am discriminated against. Not the hospice but the medical establishment doesn’t want to give me the proper care. Years ago I should have…

Mexico: Coloring Book & Geography Study {review}

I thought I knew a good deal about Mexico. I was wrong. I had no idea all the states that make up Mexico. The history of North America that comes directly from Mexico and migrated northward over the years. Frankly my knowledge of Mexico was spotty at best and not what I wanted to teach…
