One Mom Shatters The Breast Milk Record

If you have babies, did you breast feed?  I did it for ten months and by the end I was plum worn out.  It was a great bonding experience and I loved that part of it, but it was hard on a girl's body too.

Finally! The Middle Child Gets All The Attention

 

Oh that poor middle child, always the forgotten and neglected one and rarely the center of attention.  That's my middle child in the pic, and she's not afraid to yell and stomp until she's noticed.  Middle kids do what they gotta do!

The middle child will get all the love next week in Boise!

It's a night just for them, and they'll even be able to get autographs from talented sports stars who also happen to be middle children.

Katy Perry Inspires Me

I love and respect Katy Perry on so many levels, and I'm always interested in what she has to say about love.

She doesn't just suffer a breakup and wallow in the pain, but instead she seems to want to learn what she can from the experience and take that with her for next time.

People like that fascinate and inspire me.

Really? Some Foods Can Make Us MORE Hungry.

I think I've admitted before that I'm a little OCD when it comes to weight.  I weigh myself every day and I freak out if I get toward the upper end of my self-imposed five pound window because I don't like how my stomach feels above a certain weight and I can't stand tight pants.  I was chubby as a kid and in college and a lot of my weight issues are no doubt tied to that.  On the positive side, it's made me more conscious of the things I eat and it's forced me to make choices that are consistent with health goals, and on the negative side it kinda drives me nuts.

Anyhoo, I just read that there are some foods that can actually make us more hungry.  Crazy! Are there any foods that can trick us into being full?

Women Expect Men To Be Good With A Drill – And What Else?

Growing up in a small town in Nebraska I was close to my family, and there were certain things I always expected by dad to know how to do.  He was always there fixing things with his handy drill, landscaping the yard with his trusty riding lawn mower, and grilling ribs on Sundays.  He was just the go-to guy for that kind of thing.

Turns out, those are all things that women expect from any guy.  Whether it's Dad or a husband or boyfriend, guys are expected to know how to be good at drilling stuff.  What else is on the list?

Happy Birthday To Michael Richards; Feel Free To Celebrate With These Classic Seinfeld Bits.

Kramer cracks me up with his views on marriage.  Is it really a "man-made" prison and married couples are doing time?  Oh, and do you remember the classic episode where Kramer bought those skinny jeans and his whole world turned upside down?  Tight pants are the worst!
