The Fat, the Skinny and the mislead perception!!

I want ALL of you to know something...YOU yes YOU are beautiful no matter what size you are!! Whether you're a size 0 or 28+ DO NOT let society tell you that being a certain size is what defines who you really are because it's NOT!! Yes being healthy is important but that's not what this is about.  This is about living your life and feeling great about who you are no matter how much you weigh, how light or dark you are, whether you have thin hair, short hair, long hair or NO hair.  Attitude is everything and when you change yourself from within that true beauty will shine bright on the outside.  Don't let what others percieve you to be control who you WANT to be! So let yourself GO...go on that cruise, go to the beach, walk on that trail, travel to where you want to go, wear those high heels if it makes you feel good BUT most of all LIVE YOUR LIFE and don't let anyone else live it for you! xoxoxo

The Closer I get to you...

How close are your kids?  Sometimes I wonder if the relationship between my kids would be considered "close"? I mean the youngest (4) seems to be close to everyone but the relationship between my oldest (13) and middle two (7&8) just doesn't seem close enough, or at all for that matter! I see other families and the kids all help each other and get along so great but then I look at mine and see almost a disconnect? More of a battle to see who can get more of my attention then actually having fun TOGETHER!! I understand sibling rivalry believe me I'm the baby of the family.  I wonder if I didn't or haven't done enough to try and help them be closer?

Waking up wet!

Ya I thought that would get your attention! Okay but seriously now I posted awhile back ago about my sons bed wetting issues.  He's not 7 and we're still having a hard time.  I understand from personal experience how hard of a habit this is to break.  I've tried all the usual things, restricting liquid after a certain time, waking him up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and have even taken him to the doctor.  I know he's REALLY embarrassed about this but STILL can't seem to stop.  Some think if he just keeps wetting himself that he'll stop...uumm not so much. 

I want to find another way to help him.  I feel awful that he's 7 and still having this problem.  Even his 4yr old sister wakes up dry every morning.  Maybe I should take a more unconventional approach not that I have any ideas or suggestions to support what that approach might be! Any words of wisdom from anyone who's actually been through this would be super helpful!
