Happy Mother’s Day, the best gift is seeing your family eat healthy #LoveYoBaby #Stonyfied #NewHampshire #Organics!
From the time kids are born they are watching you, observing everything you do. I hear they do 90% of what you do and 10% of what you say. My daughter was born on Mothers Day, this year we share the day. Truly the best gift is seeing my family happy and healthy.
Children model the behaviors of those around them, and when children are young, parents (and sometimes siblings) are the main role models in their lives. Children are likely to adopt the same eating habits as their parents. Since parents have the biggest influence in a child’s life, it is important that they set good examples. Raising children to adopt healthy eating behaviors may seem daunting, but it does not have to be. I think parents should expose their children to a wide variety of foods starting at an early age. Like Mommy like me, I love to eat a variety of foods and in our house the kids always see us enjoying and sharing healthy food such as Stonyfields yogurt. In our home it started with YoBaby http://www.stonyfield.com/products/baby-kids/yobaby/plain and continues to smoothies, plus a variety of healthy food. Nothing was outlawed, just in moderation, cookies, chips, candy all in moderation. Children who eat the same food as their parents rather than being indulged with 'kids' meals' are far more likely to have healthy diets, research has found. I had the best lunch celebrating sweet 16 of Yobaby at Bouley Botanical Resturant in NYC, with guest speaker and mother and registered dietitian, Sally Kuzemchak shared her own feeding troubles and offer her tips for raising a successful eater. I loved the communication specialist from Stonyfield, they were fantastic and had great energy. I can't wait to go to the farm and see them again.
Stonyfield is more then yogurt! Its the vibration of a healthy life and happy family! As a MOM thats all I want is a happy healthy family!

13 MANNERS to review with our kids! A refresher never hurts anyone! Parents we need reminders too.
1. Say "please" and "thank you." The two benchmarks of good manners, but sadly lacking today, despite the fact that teaching kids to say them is a simple process of reminding them.
3. Chew with their mouths closed. Nobody likes the site of chewed up food, and open mouths increase the chance of things falling out.
4. Don't interrupt. Unless it's an emergency (it usually isn't), kids need to learn patience and allow an interaction to continue.
5. Don't text at the table. Seemingly a no-brainer, I am constantly astounded by how much kids (and adults) check their phones during meals. I'm guilty, but trying not to do it!
6. Don't text during conversations. Nothing relays the message that you've got better things to do than checking your phone during a conversation.
7. Honor Privacy You don't have to read someone's diary to invade her privacy. In a world of reality TV and 24/7 social media, it's challenging to maintain a sense of privacy.
Knock on the door before entering a room.
Do not eavesdrop on others' conversations.
Don't spread gossip and rumors.
Don't share and forward the personal information (or photos) of others.
Do put an end to forwards that land in your lap. It stops here.
8. Learn to say "excuse me." Always appropriate when interrupting a situation or when releasing "gas."
9. Have integrity "Honesty and integrity are at the very foundation of one's character," says Sena. Our children must learn how powerful their words are, and how using them wisely is at the core of good manners.
Tell the truth. "It's not always easier to tell the truth, but it's always better in the long run," says Nickell. "Our children should know that lying won't get them anywhere, and that honesty really is the best policy."
Stick to your word. "Teach the importance of following through and living by your word," says Nickell. "It's an essential part of life, and it's a lesson children can begin to learn at a young age." If you say you're going to do something, stick to it.
10.Respect your elders "Speak to adults respectfully and look them in the eye when they are speaking to you," says Liz Taylor, an etiquette consultant in Minneapolis. Refer to them as Mr. or Mrs. unless they tell you otherwise. (If you don't know their names, refer to them as sir or ma'am.) Politely offer them your seat or let them go before you (through a door, in a buffet line, or anywhere).
11. Lose gracefully. If you do your best, then it doesn't matter whether you win or lose. We can't win every game, so when you lose, be sure to thank your opponent, shake hands and say, "Well done!" or "Good job." No sore losers, please.
Maintain a positive attitude. Sports and games should emphasize building each other up, taking turns, playing as a team, working hard and striving to improve. By focusing on these positives, there will be fewer bad manners when there is a loss.
12. Acknowledge friends and acquaintances. A simple nod or smile is all it takes, versus ignoring them completely.
13. Eat your food,with mouth closed, just another reminder!
Deflate gate is a teachable moments. I love Tom Brady and The Super Bowl, dressing in Patriots colors and having fun. That will not be taken away because of "de-flategate". Children need to know that no organization is 100% pure, for instance. According to the New York Post, the other Super Bowl team, the Seahawks, leads the league in performance-enhancing drug suspensions. And it’s important to emphasize that people (or teams) shouldn't’t be defined by their worst actions. The Barry Bonds Family Foundation helps fund outreach programs for African-American youth in San Francisco. If they cheated, they must be held accountable, like Lance Armstrong and Alex Rodriguez, the highest paid player in the history of baseball, came clean about his use of steroids in the last decade as part of an immunity deal with the Drug Enforcement Association. The truth will come out.
I always say think about the consequences of how you will eventually be viewed because of your actions today. Just because people accuse does not make it true. According to http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/deflategate-patriots-tom-brady-colts/ Pro-Football-Reference’s expected points metric, which tracks how many net points are added by each play after accounting for down, distance and field position, Tom Brady and the Patriots’ passing offense added 14.1 points to the team’s margin. By contrast, Andrew Luck and the Colts contributed -10.5 expected points through the air, so the difference among the two teams’ passing production was worth about 24.6 points of scoring margin to the Patriots — still about two touchdowns shy of the Colts’ entire scoreboard deficit. The proof is in the record.
I would like to offer some parenting advice and talking points concerning this "deflate gate, I think it can open great conversation
1. Talk about our moral value
2. Talk about why people cheat inadequacy or they worry about underperforming
3. Talk about consequences, reparably damage their relationships with their peers.
4. Talk about accusations overpower your love for The New England Patriots or any sport and what it means to be a fan and just enjoy.
5. Talk about how to cope with the disappointment of loosing or finding out that somebody cheated and how to handle it.
Parenting Expert Worries for Jolie & Pitt's Gender-Bender Daughter
Monday, 29 Dec 2014 03:43 PM
"This child needs guidance. Maybe she sees her parents playing different roles and is dressed up and she's playing at a role, but as far as changing her name to John, it's ridiculous," Corso said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Parents need to guide and protect their children, and Brad and Angelina should not be considered trailblazing for parenthood at all. They live in the happy forest of Hollywood, let's say."
The superstar couple supports their blonde, blue-eyed daughter Shiloh's desire to be called John and wear masculine outfits.
Shiloh recently raised eyebrows as she attended the premiere of her mother's holiday blockbuster, the PG-13 movie "Unbroken," attired in a suit and sporting a boyish haircut.
Corso said that could be harmful.
"I’m all for diversity, but Angelina is running her crew like she's running a movie set. Okay, we need someone transgender, can we pull someone in?" Corso told host Steve Malzberg.
"It's very dangerous what she's doing. I really, truly, as a mom and a parenting expert, my heart goes out to this little girl."
Corso said Jolie's own gender history might play a part.
"Sometimes you have to look back at the parent's relationship with their own mother and father — and I know that Angelina in the news has been bisexual," she said.
"She has been seen French-kissing her brother on the red carpet. I mean, you're not dealing with the traditional mother like myself, so this does cause social and gender confusion."
Yet Shiloh's role-playing may be completely innocent, Corso says.
"She does have two brothers, and maybe she just wants to be one of the guys and maybe she sees the privileges that they're getting and she just might be one of the guys," Corso said.
"But again, I have to stress that this child needs to explore her own identity . . . in a private way."
In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Jolie said of Shiloh's tomboy style: “She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. So, it’s a suit with a tie and a jacket and slacks, or a tracksuit. She likes to dress like a boy.
"She wants to be a boy, so, we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
In a 2010 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Pitt explained: "She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So, it's a Peter Pan thing. So, we've got to call her John. 'Shi, do you want . . .' — 'John. I'm John.' And then I'll say, 'John, would you like some orange juice?' And she goes, 'No!' "
Jolie, who has been married three times, is well known for her own gender bending on and off the screen.
She played a bisexual fashion model in the 1998 HBO movie "Gia." She was once hot and heavy with model Jenny Shimizu, saying in a 1997 interview with Girlfriends magazine: "I fell in love with her the first second I saw her."

Jolie, Pitt Allow Daughter to Dress Like a Boy, Call Her 'John'
Mom's, listen up, the best thing I ever did was give my kid a debit card! Your child will learn more from this then you can even imagine. Some kids just see us pull out our credit cards and wala instant merchandise. I wanted to show the process, as a entrepreneur I encouraged my daughter to "take the challenge" and start a "FUN" business over the summer. I took it a step further and gave her a debit card to buy whatever she wanted as long as she was accountable for the money in the account. The debit card was in my name, her possession, kept tight in in her little cupcake wallet in her bag.
TREND? BINGE #Restaurant hopping #Binging and Proud, no longer dirty secret! I’ll tell you mine, if you tell me yours!
The word" Binge" today is not what it use to be, people want to be over satisfied then talk about it, no longer dirty little secret and all legal! Binge Culture gives consumers permission to be addicts, this is my observation and a big trend!
We have become a culture that embraces overdoing it, but now binging is becoming the norm. We all have a binge side to us, admit it “binging satisfies a craving,”everything oversized, buying more, faster, instant gratification, we all want to feel like we have control and feel satisfied and then want to share it!

Why do you think everybody loves a good mani? I think It feels better, cheap additionally can change your mood. Even if you feel "a mess" when your nails are done, you feelbetter. I discovered this very cool little nail artist. Her name is Natile. I like a natural nail for myself, with a fun color polish, but always admire the ladies with the big statement nails. I think it's a way to express, and show your frivolous creative side. We all know that fake nails are not for everyday, but a good mani and fun colors and designs can put a smile on any girls face.
Shellac manicures are all the rage right now, especially with summer coming up! If you have not heard about them: Shellac is a type of polish that stays relatively chip-free for up to two weeks. The polish is a cross among regular and gel polish, which means a stronger formula to hold up during all your summer fun!
Here’s why Shellac manicures should be the only thing on your nails this season:
Shellac lasts longer than regular manicures – Let’s face it: regular manis at the salon is hard to keep nice. Shortly after a manicure, polish already starts to chip. It’s great for an event, but go a couple days, and you need a touch up. You do not have to worry about chipping with Shellac. They cost a fraction more, yet they last twice as long, giving you more time to enjoy the glorious summer whether.
Shellac takes less time to dry – We are all busy people. Say goodbye to sitting around waiting at your nails to be ready! No more chipping them because they weren’t dry. Shellac polish is dried by UV3 technology. At the salon, you just let your nails sit under a small UV light for a couple minutes, and then you are done. Simple!
Shellac designs are limitless – It’s true: you CAN have shiny nails and designs that last! Shellac has a glossy finish and comes in all kinds of colors, so you can get great designs that do not chip off. The best part: it can be removed easily at your salon OR at home with 100% acetone nail polish remover. so got to natlie
For years, acrylic, or artificial, nails have been the answer for anyone who has longed for well-manicured hands. They don't chip, peel or crack, and you don't have to wait weeks for your nails to grow to have fabulous fingernails. Aside from time and money necessary to maintain acrylic nails, there can be some downsides, which usually involve nail fungus or an allergic reaction to the polymer-based substances in the product.

For most people, acrylic nails are a safe cosmetic enhancement. While it's unlikely that acrylic nails will harm your health, some people may notice that their real nails get tougher or become discolored [source: Gibson]. If this happens, simply remove the acrylic nails and let your fingernails grow out. However, there are some more serious consequences of having acrylic nails.
Some ingredients in acrylic nails are highly flammable, so they must be kept at a distance from hair straighteners, dryers or curling irons, as well as from heat and flames when cooking [source: U.S. Food and Drug Administration].
Infection is another potential health problem that can develop — this is especially likely if you bump the nails or if they begin to separate from your natural nail. The moist, dark space between your nail and the acrylic is a perfect breeding ground for fungus and bacteria. You may not immediately notice the signs of infection because your nails are covered, so it's best not to leave acrylic nails in place too long [source:Gibson]. If your immune system is compromised in any way, perhaps due to drug treatments like chemotherapy, an autoimmune disease or a history of fungal infections or poor blood circulation, you're at a higher risk of developing an infection and may want to forgo acrylic nails [source: WebMD].
nails can change how you feel about yourself. For instance, some professional women who lost their jobs were loathe to cut a weekly manicure from their expenses, arguing that the indulgence helped them to look professional [source: Saint Louis]. Second, the process is undeniably relaxing, from the hand massage, to the careful attention to each finger. Third, sometimes it's hard to deny a bride who's made a round of manicures mandatory for the bridal party.
Regardless of the reason for the beauty treatment, a manicure forces you to take some time for yourself. How you spend that time is up to you — rehashing recent dramas with your friend in the adjacent chair or chatting with the manicurist. After all, you and the manicurist practically hold hands, and if you know each other well, you might catch up on life since the last manicure.
Even if you and your nail technician aren't best buddies, you can benefit from a manicure in ways beyond the obvious. For instance, nail biters may refrain from chomping on their digits if they're looking at a set of perfect nails sparkling with Moon Over Mumbai polish.
Not everyone sees the point of sitting in a salon and devoting an hour or so to your nails. Manicures don't last forever; that's why the salon can count on you coming back and spending more money. Your manicure will start chipping in three days if you're hard on your hands — washing them frequently, working with them and not wearing gloves when doing dishes. For the average person, though, a manicure lasts a solid week. You may even be able to stretch it into two weeks by adding a clear top coat every other day.
Even if you'd never place a pinky finger in a salon, you may be curious about the men and women in your life who disappear weekly behind those glass doors. Keep reading to learn about manicures and the secrets behind well-groomed hands.a
Start by taking off old polish with a nonacetone remover. You've probably heard that acetone dries out your nails, but breathing in the fumes can also cause throat irritation and even increase your pulse rate, according to the National Institutes of Health.
