Daring To Run Commando

Go Commando With Cottonelle

One of my big goals for 2015 was to shift some of my habits towards a more healthy lifestyle. One of those habits included learning to love to run.

I love this time of year. I just got over the opening of the spring and summer wardrobe that doesn't fit and the realization of what my winter eating habits have done to me.

It’s More Than Just Potty Training For Some Children


I'm on my third child here and while many parts of parenting are easy there are some that are just easier for others. Potty training can be something you breeze through in just three days like I did with one of my boys and another group struggles well into their older years. The issue is when your school aged kid realizes they are the only one still having night-time issues and everyone else is … [Read more...]
