Your kids have been begging for a cat, dog, goldfish, snake or gerbil. You’ve been dodging the issue for months but finally cave to pressure and are considering a non-human addition to the family. The right family pet can make your life even better; they reduce stress, provide companionship and teach your children responsibility. The wrong pet can make your life miserable, become a source of tension (“It’s your turn to take the dog out in the rain!”) and create a reason for the landlord to cancel your lease.

Travel, especially to an underdeveloped country, can be an eye-opener. Diane Valenti learned gratitude during her trip to Peru.
My guide, Marco, showed up promptly at 8 a.m. His clothes pressed to perfection, face scrubbed, and shoes shined. I could still see the comb marks in his damp hair.

A Grambo is:
A.    A grandma who defies expectation and is amazing in so many ways.
B.     A seasoned and wise individual who is not afraid to take on any task.
C.     A senior who just plain rocks
D.     All of the above.
The answer is D!
I wrote what is now my picture book, Grambo, for my Grandma Jean as a gift for Christmas one year. Though she wasn’t my grandmother by blood, she was every bit my Grambo. I loved her nickname and the story came very easily. (Not to say there weren’t drafts upon drafts. Oh there were.) Grambo is about a boy who finds out his grandma is not your average grandma. She’s a secret agent!

We men like to maintain a facade of unflappability. Nothing… not the daily commute, a backed-up toilet, or the new puppy eating the brand new sofa, can upset our personal apple cart. Well, guys, it’s time to come clean (literally) because, deep down inside, all men know that there is one thing that can shatter our resolve like nothing else…diaper disasters!

The spark in even the best of marriages can mellow, and even go out. Whether it’s stress over money and work, raising a kid or two or just the effects of time and familiarity, monogamy can get a little boring.
So maybe your mind and your eyes begin to wander. You flirt a bit at the grocery store, you share jokes with that cute single mom whose son plays soccer with yours. You haven’t cheated on your wife but, truth be told, you’re thinking about it. Before you take that step, though, here are Papiverse’s top 15 reasons not to cheat on your wife.

This easy recipe for eggs and tortillas in tomatillo sauce makes a great hearty breakfast. You can also serve it with salad and crusty bread as an alternative brunch option. Although the heat of the serrano chilies are tempered through the simmering process, it still has some kick. So if your guests require something milder you can easily substitute jalapeños. For larger parties you can double the recipe, and it’s guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.

I have a special connection with Haiti, as I´ve written before on Mamiverse. I also have a soft spot for anyone who supports literacy. That´s why when I heard about a new non-profit organization to help children in Haiti read in English or Haitian Creole, I wanted to find out more about it.
Improving kid´s literacy in Haiti and other countries was the reason Mireille B. Lauture established the non-profit Mancy’s Haitian Folktale Collection.

Tax time is hard upon us. If you haven’t yet filed you’re not alone. Tax laws have become more complicated and in a tight economy, you don’t want to make mistakes. For those struggling with complicated forms and unclear on what can be deducted and what can’t, free tax help is available. That’s right, free tax help! Even if your tax issues aren’t complex and you just need help understanding and filing the proper forms, there’s free help for that too.

Self-esteem is something I lacked when I was younger, from my childhood all through my twenties and beyond. Perhaps that was what triggered my long struggle with bulimia, fortunately now behind me. It´s taken me a lifetime to feel good about myself and I can live with that, but as the mother of two young girls, now 9 and 12, one of my life missions is to help them realize their self-worth early on.
