Step 1: Make sure (with as many sticks as you need) that you are truly “with child”. Step 2: Enlist the help of a couple of good secret keepers…that happen to be available on a day during the week (SO glad we know such awesome people)! One who can take pictures, like lovely Whitney. And […]

10 Signs You’ve Been Studying Too Much

Taken from my most recent experience of studying for my first medical licensing exam, these things may indicate that you have been studying WAY TOO MUCH…and not enough all at the same time. 1.

Mother’s Day 2013 and a Documentary About Lions

It is my 3rd Mother’s Day as a “Mommy Lion”. I must say, I only thought I was fierce until my Baby Lion entered the picture. As a tribute, we did a documentary a few days ago on the subtle differences of communication between Daddy Lions and Baby Lions. Hope you all enjoy. HAPPY MOTHER’S […]

It’s 2:11 am. Some might say that I’m crazy—doing everything that I do. I agree. But I’m crazy in the best way possible.
