Teens and Alcohol

One mom writes an open letter to her teen son about alcohol use. She doesn't like the perception most people have, and neither do I, that teens will be teens and they will try it. Sure, most teens might but some never do try it. Some aren't interested in it, right? In the letter she makes the statement that he is always to call her and her husband. Always be honest and call them even when you're in trouble. I totally agree. Call me. Will we be happy? Nope, but you will always be our son.…See More

Our Experience At Universal Studios...

I honestly just had to share this. I was highly impressed with our experience at Universal Studios. We surprised my son with a trip there yesterday and it was a beautiful day to go. The kiddo loves Transformers and we had waited a little while after it was open to head out there. We saw Optimus Prime and Bumblebee and then went to ride the actual ride. While we stood there waiting a while it ended up the ride was having technical difficulties. Okay well, we will go somewhere and then come…

Cookbooks For Gifts

I have to say I love cookbooks. I love looking through the recipe pictures and seeing all those wonderful ideas maybe I haven't even thought of. I love to cook from them when I have time but unfortunately, I don't always get to try them out. I have received them as gifts before and they are pretty wonderful. One of my favorite one's to dig through was one of Rachel Ray's my brother gave me one year. My all time favorite one is one my mother started me when I got married. She made a binder of…

Hi Jen,

 

Do you think we can start some awareness with the Blog I posted.  This is a great avenue in our community to use for this awareness.  So far people are reading and no one is saying a word.  Which is usual with this topic. Please help!!!

Hey,
I can ask my SIL if she is still doing family photos bc she does the photography for Family Times magazine! Also, we have a family friend that is really good as well and did my family photos when I was pregnant with Matthew. I will get you her info later. Lastly, Pink Rae is really good!

Thank you! There is so much information on this page it's wonderful and a bit overwhelming! I'm trying to see if there are any toddler play groups that anyone knows about?

Thanks Jen! That sounds great! :-)

Thank you Jen, i was hoping we can find some moms and their little ones to spend some time with. I have 11 month old son and i don't know anybody here in Ocala who is stay home mom with toddler. As my family is in Europe and my husband family is no longer here it is getting quite challenging for me to socialize. We also live on the farm in the middle of nowhere :-) so no neighbors there either ;-). If you know somebody or some good event for us that would be great. I subscribed to FB as well. Thanks again and Happy New Year!
