It’s time to lace up your running shoes, ladies. The third annual Woman’s Half-Marathon, 10K and 5K is right around the corner, and now is the time to get your training plan finalized and register to run, walk or volunteer.

What sets the Woman’s Half-Marathon, 10K and 5K apart from other road races around the region? For starters, it’s the only races geared exclusively toward women and the celebration of the health of women and infants in south Louisiana.

The Woman’s Half Marathon and 10K offers runners the unique option to choose their running distance, even during the event. If training didn’t quite prepare a runner to tackle the half – or if she’s just ready to start the post-race party – she can simply turn north on the 10K course.

With Safety Pieces Installed, It’s Potty Training Time!

Posted by: Tamara Palmer on Sep 30, 2014 in Milestones, Parenting, Toddlers

palmerSo it’s been a little while since I have updated my blog here. Life gets busy when you have a little child running around the house. We have had a whole new array of child safety things to install now that my little man is almost 2 years old.

As soon as he started crawling, we had already installed the safety pieces for electrical outlets. But now…. oh boy…. We have safety closures for our fridge, oven, and toilet seats. We have also installed the little plastic covers for the door handles too. These little kids are smart and they catch on so quick to things.

We have slowly started the potty training. Not full blown yet though, just introducing him to it. At night after he eats dinner he always gets his bath afterward. In between those two times though, he knows he can go to his car potty and go teetee to get a mini Oreo as a treat. He does very well with that. He’s still not at the point though to where he can tell us he needs to go before hand.

All Sugared Up: The Best And Worst Breakfast Cereals For Kids

But not all breakfasts are made the same, and cereal – a breakfast favorite for many children – can run from a healthy meal to a bowl full of sugar.

The Environmental Working Group recently released the results of its analysis of more than 1,500 adult and kid cereals, and while the results aren’t surprising, the sugar content in kids cereal may be for some parents.
