Jo Frost, My Hero!

Back in 2006/2007 I was in Trader Joe’s in Oceanside, CA. I had just finished shopping and I was waiting outside for my friends, when walking past me is Super Nanny, Jo Frost ! I never approached her because I didn’t want to come off intrusive, but I wish I would have told her that I believe in her work and the incredible message she is sending to parents. Well, I’m saying it now!, you rock Super nanny!!

I have always had a soft spot for children.  I think growing up, my house could have been a little less rigid.  Children need balance  with love, discipline, mental and physical stimulation, and fun!  Children need to be all they can be, not what a parent wants them to be.  Everyone needs to find their own individualism.

 

Christmas Day Is Over, So No More Shopping?

I hope everyone celebrated this day, their best way possible!! We all have different views, beliefs, and traditions for Christmas. For those of us that got lavished with gifts, or not, I say break away from your tradition! Last night I learned from my Sister In-Law, that for the past eight years, she and my brother belong to an organized group of friends, that every Christmas buy gifts for children who are less fortunate, mainly in foster care. We should always be trying to improve the environment and humanity around us.

Love Ted!!!

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) are conferences held throughout the year in the US, now in Asia and Europe as well on “ideas worth spreading”. …

I literally got wind of this website when I was channel surfing and landed on the Bravo Channel, Kathy Griffin‘s My Life On The D List Show. It was an episode where Rosie O’Donnell tells Kathy she wants to sit in on a TED conference, and in exchange, she will set up a meeting for Kathy with her idol Cher.

Also want to give a shout out to my other Ted, the sitcom Better Off Ted , love it too!! Just clever satirical snapshots of Corporate Science.

A Microscopic Look At Motherhood

I must say, having the title and responsibility of an Aunt is a mere glance into the enormous, undertaking role of motherhood. I may change diapers, bathe, and feed my niece and nephews, but they get returned to their parent(s). As a person who is without child, I have a daily routine that only involves me. I may get up in the morning, take a nice hot soaking bath, while watching the news with a soothing cup of hot tea, before I start my day. In a mother’s world, she is woken up to the tune of a little person, maybe several times throughout the night, crying for a bottle in the early morning. So the mom who has had interrupted sleep, starts her day feeding her hungry child, who will have many other needs and unexpected surprises, whenever, whatever they are, through the coarse of a day,every day (24/7) to react or respond to!

I have heard Oprah Winfrey on her views of Mothers worldwide, and I wholeheartedly agree, Being a Mother is the toughest, most important job on the planet.

My Niece Laughs Histerically With Farting Animated Characters!

My niece and I sit together watching educational and kid friendly animated videos. This inspiring little person is turning two, going on twenty! She is very decisive in what she likes to watch, really, with anything she wants to do. Flowgo is one of the sites we visit as well as Sesame Street. Flowgo has the farting, laughing, white kitten that she loves. Sesame Street just turned 40 years, they are definitely doing something right. She loves Elmo, and many of the variety of characters throughout the Internet.

Love SuperFetch, So Go Fetch That !!

Yes, Just another great miracle dog worker, Zack George on Animal Planet, teaches us that if we direct and guide consistently, the dogs will follow.  Let’s give our dogs another purpose in their life!  Our four footed friends want to feel needed and it makes everyone’s life more interesting. If we build it, they will fetch!

Who Out There Is A Cesar Millan Fan?

For those of you who have never tuned in to his National Geographic Channel show, or his site Cesar’s Way, he is quiet informative on the importance of the energy and discipline that owners bring to their dog’s life experience and environment. Cesar is an advocate for eliminating the negative behavior owners mistakenly reinforce in their dogs, and caring for the unsocialized canines that some times erroneously are put down. Besides rescuing and rehabilitating them, his true intentions are directed to the owners/caretakers of these amazing fury companions, to be the assertive alpha pack leader . The training is really geared towards the humans. There are magazines, books, sessions etc., that he has marketed, however use whatever tool you need, pertaining to your individual circumstances, in fulfilling the best life for you and your fury friend.
