This week we’re celebrating Tim Nelis as our Real Man of Parenthood.
His wife, Sara, hit the jackpot in this guy. In this picture below, he is wearing their first son, Bennet, in an Ergo. Bennet is three here. They adopted Bennet at 2 years old and used baby-wearing to encourage attachment. Baby-wearing helped to teach him that he was theirs and to let him know that he was home, not in another foster placement that would end. Tim often … Keep Reading!!!
I really want to encourage families who are interested in traveling internationally with their children. As I mentioned, although Brian and my worst fear of traveling with kids came true this trip, we really can’t find any reason to fear it anymore. Although having Aram sick was so sad for him and we hated him not being able to enjoy everything to the fullest, he still had a great time, and we felt so safe.
Before taking a trip, Brian and I always discuss our concerns with the areas, especially when the kids are also coming with us.
With any trip, our biggest concern seems to be illness, because it is not only extremely stressful to be sick in an unfamiliar area, but also can be extremely dangerous if you don’t know where or who to go to for aid.
“An illiterate, impoverished daughter of freed slaves built the largest black-owned business in America, made a fortune, and touched thousands with her philanthropy.” – PBS’s “Who Made America”.
One of my role models is Sarah Breedlove Walker, and the border between black history month and women’s history month is the perfect time to gush about her. Because she made her fortune in Indianapolis (where I grew up), she has always been a hero to me. She is a fantastic role … Keep Reading!!!
This week’s picture is worth a thousand words. This man’s name is Keith Reagan, and he’s snuggling with Collins here. Keith’s wife Lisa is with Pathways to Family Wellness magazine.
If that picture doesn’t simply melt your heart, I don’t know what will. Way to go, Daddy! Your connection with your baby is precious.
Well, what can one expect on game drives?
The day we arrived at the lodge we were eager to go on a game drive. We took in the views from our room, splashed water on our faces, and rushed back to the common space to meet for tea … Keep Reading!!!
Succulents are truly amazing life forms. Besides being easy to take care of and being small enough to fit in almost any living environment, you can also create new succulent plants from existing ones rather than having to breed two different plants. Much like succulent care, succulent propagation is a simple process that anyone can do. If you’re interested in creating more succulents, here is an easy four-step process to propagating succulents.
Step 1. Remove a Small Portion … Keep Reading!!!

After about a five hour drive from Johannesburg, we made it to Madikwe Safari Lodge (very close to the border of Botswana).
This was the first stop for this trip and we were all eager to see animals…really any animals. From the moment that we entered the Madikwe Safari Lodge border we were welcomed by hundreds of animals. On just the drive up to camp, we saw right next to our vehicle: elephants, giraffes, impalas, zebras, wildebeests, and many many … Keep Reading!!!
Feast your eyes on Bob Sutherland. He is a massage therapist, waiter and wine guy and attached papa of 6-month-old Leo. He is an anti-circing, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, baby wearing, breast-feeding supporter who cooks and cleans and gives mom and baby great massages. He is a rock star dad.
We made it to South Africa! I am currently sitting on a hotel bed with Shannon (The Woman Formerly Known as Beautiful) as we discuss our flight.
After two days and 20 hours of in-air travel with five children, one sick husband, one husband with allergies, a mother-in-law with sciatica, one airsick member of our group (yes, the barf-bag got some use), and 15 mini bottles of wine later we landed. We were greeted by Gloria sent … Keep Reading!!!
