Five Frugal Uses for Essential Oil

Friday, March 30, 2012
Here I am, sitting in the living room, casually playing a totally "boys' game" with my son (cars and garage!), when I suddenly catch a glimpse of this segment on TV, talking about cool tricks for the home... I am a sucker for these homemade tricks and potions intended to be money-savers and to replace the toxic products sold in stores. So I put the miniature race car down, with my son giving me a look like he just lost his game partner forever, and crank up the volume! These ideas presented by the "Frugalista" are pretty neat. I remained impressed by the originality and knew I had to share it with you guys!

Enough said, I will let you discover Margot and her work through this interview I have conducted with her.

Although the kids are really the ones getting the whole kick out of it. As for us, parents, we relive these simple joys through our little ones... enjoying quality time making homemade Easter crafts, organizing an Easter egg hunt, cooking some cool Easter treats.

Purple Day - March 26

Sunday, March 25, 2012

Purple day takes place annually on March 26th to raise awareness about epilepsy worldwide. People in every country are invited to wear purple on this day to show their support. Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects over 50 million people around the globe and nearly 90% of epilepsy occurs in developing countries. This means more people are affected by epilepsy than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson's disease combined.

Epilepsy is not a disease, it is a symptom of a neurological disorder (a physical condition) that from time to time produces brief disturbances in the normal electrical functions of the brain. Epilepsy is characterized by sudden, brief seizures whose nature and intensity vary from person to person.

So please, on this very important and significant day, show your support and solidarity by wearing purple and encourage others to do the same. Or even better, get involved by hosting a fundraiser or a Purple Day party either at your work, school, home, or any location where you have the means to gather people. Most importantly, get the real facts about the Purple Day and epilepsy itself by visiting the website Supporting Epilepsy Around The World. You can also learn about more ways on how to get involved by clicking here.

Is There Really An Ideal Age Gap?

Thursday, March 22, 2012

I keep hearing people say that the best age gap between siblings is two years. That significant gaps can be bad... as it will ruin the relationship between the siblings. To be honest, it gets me a little confused how this rule came about. Where did this theory come from? Is there really such a thing as the perfect age gap between siblings?

My B-Boy is still youngish but I am anticipating those infamous anger fits in public. Even though we know we are good parents and our child is well-behaved, these unfortunate events don't fail in making us look and feel like we have the worst parenting skills on earth. The staring gazes and fear of judgment also add on to the stress. And we seem to always find ourselves giving in, knowing we are definitely not going about it the right or best way.

When it comes to baby formula, the choice can be dreadfully overwhelming. What to chose? How to chose? It's enough to drive any parent crazy! But with all the choice that is out there, odds are that your baby would be perfectly fine with quite a few of them, brand name or store name. So then, what's the catch?! Well, there is no catch... we parents are just wired to look out for our children's best interest. Hence the reason we splurge a bit more and go for the brand names.
