Why are you stuck on what other people think of what you do? Why do you let other people’s opinions get in the way of doing what you love?
A woman lunching with friends says, “I’m thinking about going back to school, getting a degree in social work. The kids are in school, I’ve got more time now.” “School!” one friend exclaims, “you outta your mind? You’ve got a perfectly good job, and you haven’t been to school in what – 15 years?” “I know,” the woman replies, “But this is something… Continue

I ran into an old friend from my single days. Nice guy. A pretty boy in his prime who had gals flocking to him in droves. He still looks good at 40.
My family was at the Farmer’s Market doing the weekly shop when I spotted him with two other single guys. I turned to my husband and said, “Do you think he’s trolling for women at the Farmer’s Market?”
In the banding together men do when it comes to all-things-trolling my husband stuck up for him, “There’s a lot of nice,… Continue

Human beings are creatures of habit. Most of the time, we're on automatic pilot. We sleep on the same side of the bed every night. We sit in the same chair at our dining room table. We take the same route to work each day.
Being on automatic pilot is not necessarily a bad… Continue
Throughout our youth we're constantly trying to lock down our identity. It seems that some parents are giving their kids a head start. A study by Internet security firm AVG found that 5% of babies under 2 have social media profiles, while 7% have an e-mail address. Some of these profiles are even created while the babies are still in the womb. What's more, 23% of… Continue

Had a great interview with Tracy Moore the beautiful, powerful and dynamic host of City Line. Really lots of fun talking about “Sex after baby” and “Mini-date nights”. Thanks so much City Line for having me on and I look forward to coming back the next time I’m in Toronto.…
This seems like a cosmic joke, but a new study shows this to be true. In fact, mothers would be better off taking care of themselves than to have a daughter-in-law look after them. You may be thinking, "Of course, they can't breathe with a pillow over their face."
In all seriousness, Japanese researchers conducted a four-year study where…
There's nothing groundbreaking with this new data, but according to researchers at the University of Radford, there are certain jobs that seem to be a curse on marriage, while others offer stability. The researchers used the 2000… Continue

My husband took the homemade frozen muffins on the bright blue IKEA plate, placed them in the microwave, turned to me and asked, “How long should these be in the microwave?”
Innocent enough question. But I was up at 3:00 a.m. with a teething baby, could not fall back to sleep until 5:00’ish when my baby, once again, woke up. I was exhausted and coming up with an answer was too much effort.
I looked at him bleary eyed with a confused haven’t-had-my-first-cup-of-coffee… Continue
For infertile couples wanting to have a child and not being able to, no one is more deserving of the Nobel Peace prize than British biologist Robert Edward. He, along with colleague Patrick Steptoe, developed the technique for in-vitro fertizilation (IVF), which led to the first birth of its kind on July 25, 1978. More than 10 percent of couples worldwide are… Continue

The yearly survey of “how much sex are young women really having” came around mid-September.
Once again, it had nothing to do with male sexuality—can’t figure out for the life of me why it’s always gal’s sexuality that’s under scrutiny. Maybe because people keep that old tired, “men can have lots of sex and women can’t…because she’ll get pregnant and get labeled a ‘whore’” dogma subconsciously in their heads.
This time, thank goodness, no mention of how immoral and… Continue
