    How to Stay Fit and Enjoy Family Life

    How to Stay Fit and Enjoy Family Life

    Starting a family is a wonderful thing, but it comes with a lot of sacrifice and things that you have to decide to get rid of. Forget about your hobbies and days where you can spend all on your own. Having a family is hard work, especially when you have a little kid around. One of the first things to go is actually your figure and fitness. Since you will hardly even have any time to train, your fitness will be the first thing to go.

    Diary of a Venezuelan Migrant

    Diary of a Venezuelan Migrant

    On February 12th, 2014, the birthday of Rossanna. She and Andrea, my two daughters, separately with their friends, left to a protest. That day is not just Ross's birthday, it's the "Youth Day." In my country this is the day in which the Battle of Victory is celebrated. In 1814 a group of young university students, bachelors and schoolchildren, went out to accompany the Patriots José Felix Rivas and Vicente Campo Elías in a battle against nothing more and nothing less than José Tomás Boves, known as the "Urugallo," who commanded the realists troop—the side of the Spaniards in the war of Independence. Thus, on February 12, 2014, in a similar way, but worse, it resembled February 12, 1814, because that day the first young man who died in the protest was Basill Dacosta, as young as those who fought in the Battle of victory; and with him others died in a battle for nothing Just. I have to say that the forces of "public order," Venezuelans like our young people who were in protest , acted worse with their own compatriots than Boves who was Spanish. In the Battle of Victory, the young people who fought beside the Patriots beat the Urugallo. In this of the 2014 on the other hand the authority won, but at a very high cost.

    How to Wake Up a Sleeping Teen

    How to Wake Up a Sleeping Teen

    One of the most puzzling creatures on planet Earth are those who come into this world as human babies. These small creatures move about within the female as they form and have plenty of room to move around and kick. In fact, upon their first appearance on their planet, they come complete with an extension cord (I think doctors call them umbilical these days, but who are they fooling? Everybody knows that babies are still attached to their moms until they reach 35). Certainly, if the Creator had enough room for those things, He could've easily added an instruction book, couldn't he?

    Cloth Diapering for Beginners

    Cloth Diapering for Beginners

    Switching from disposable to cloth diapers has been such a success for my family and I. I was fortunate enough to have cloth diapers handed to me but at the time I knew nothing about them. After researching and reading how the wash routine is specified to your washer and water hardness, all the many different brands and inserts, I was even more confused than when I knew nothing! I honestly was so close to not even trying but I am so glad I did (and so is my bank account).

    Are you looking for a way to include your kids in the household cleaning but you want to make it fun for them? Well, you're in the right place. Whether your children are five or 15, you can do things to make cleaning more fun and exciting. Of course, when they become around the age of 15 it comes to be more of a chore, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring and unentertaining.
