Personalized Children's Books

The new trend in the publishing world is personalized children's books which have the child 's name as one of the main characters ( and also includes sights from their very own hometown). It also has the child's friends in the book and it can all be made to order at a very small price.

It takes a village to raise a child- African Proverb
I was flipping through a magazine and found a survey that showed 51% of homemakers are very stressed about life as compared to 29% of mothers who worked full time. Most women say its stressful at home AND at work.
There is just so much to get done!

Still on the topic of kids & money, Suze Orman who is a personal finance expert on CNBC say that children learn from the money habits of parents. It's not enough to tell your kids about money, you've gotta lead by example too.

Wow, that's hard :)

Hi Sonia . I just gave birth and i plan on going on Atkins (high protein diet ) to shed the pounds. Can i do Atkins while breast feeding?

Hi! According to Dr Atkins book, you can't do Atkins while breast feeding. Lots of mothers tell me that breast feeding actually helps a little in the weight loss because it increases the Basal Metabolic Rate. Try exercise and yoga.Enjoy this time with your can be stressful trying to adjust AND lose weight at the same time. Don't be too hard on yourself
