On Mother's Day, I would like to express my views as I look out my window upon a beautiful scene.I am overjoyed to see the lake shining before me in the sunshine, its color matching the blue sky. Birds are flittering here and there, the spring green is flourishing with the unstoppable force of Nature, and I can hardly contain my joy at being on such a beautiful planet! What I see out my window is Mother - I can tell this is so because of how I feel in my heart!
I wanted to give all of you moms a gift. I wanted to tell you how special you are, and how grateful I am to you for loving and raising our future...your children. I decided the only gift I could give you is my gratitude. I made a video for you. Enjoy your day! Mjo (Tango Expert) http://on.fb.me/jOPFhY
Moms today worry a lot. Yes, mothers have always worried, but today’s young moms are so busy that sometimes motherhood feels like a problem-solving exercise: How can I balance my work, my own needs, and my family? How will I breastfeed my baby after I go back to work? How can I make sure my kids get the education they need?
Men and women are supposed to be equal right? Well, for certain things yes. For example, equal pay, equal rights etc. But men and women's brains are not equal. Science can actually explain the reasons men and women do the things they do. Research shows that the female brain operates differenly than the male brain. Each has been trained by millions of years of evolution. This is the source of many of the problems and miscomminuction between the sexes.
$848,000,000 was spent on Shapewear by American women last year. $848 MILLION. What if that very fashion accessory is KEEPING YOU SINGLE? On a recent CBS Morning Show there was a feature on a segment of that market, the Booty Boosters. Apparently, the Butt is the '"It" factor in sex appeal this summer...no kidding!
Apart from parents who have taken extraordinary measures to isolate themselves from the world, there probably isn't a child alive who hasn't heard about the death of Osama bin Laden. Most of our kids know that killing is "bad"; the very fabric of our society is built upon the notion that it is wrong to kill another human being. So the celebration of this man's death certainly has the potential to generate confusion in our children. Here are some thoughts about how to handle the inevitable questions from curious kids about bin Laden's death.
Why do some guys think they have the right to tell you what to wear or how to wear it? What is it about guys buying clothes for you that feels great but weird at the same time? I'm at the mall, and I can't help but notice a very dashing young man selecting clothes for his girlfriend to try on. "Mmm, that's not really my type," she says, of one of the outfits, "Oh, you'd look great in it. Try it on – for me," he says, handing it to her. "OK," she says, giving in.
If you’re a Mom with children still at home, I’m sure you have concerns about how your dating might affect your kids’ lives. Issues such as jealousy and challenges with time-sharing are real. But I’d like you to consider the positives. Yes, it’s true that “a happy Mother is a good Mother.” But I also believe that Moms who date have a great opportunity to teach their kids – especially their daughters – essential lessons about taking care of themselves and interacting with boys. ————
