Wow, this topic just came out of nowhere, didn't it? Well, you see, I spend some time each week talking with couples openly and honestly about sex (or lack thereof) in marriage and relationships on a number of platforms. Sex has never been a topic I find difficult to talk about and I feel that it is important for couples to communicate effectively and honestly about sex at all times. With that said - there are two recurring issues that I have frequently heard about from couples over the past 10+ years. 1. spouses/partners who feel there is not enough sex in their bedroom; and 2. wives/partners who lament their husband's/partner's porno watching. Often neither of the pair can understand the other or why they do what they do or feel the way they feel in relation to sex. Frequently also, one cannot determine why the other refuses sex on most occasions, and on the other hand one of the pair is cautious about their significant other watching triple x videos. And who could blame either of the two? Today, we are going to touch briefly about spouses/partners who sometimes opt to enjoy a blue movie (porn video); and a quirky way the husband of a friend of mine had his porn watching habits instantly ended (yikes!).
Hi there! I hope you and your family are staying safe and also finding interesting ways to pass the time as everyone tucks away at home! If you are fortunate to be enjoying the toddler years like I am with my 2 year old and 4 year old - this will mean that you are also squeezing in a little pre-k learning during the days now that pre-school is out for a bit. If you are trapped behind the walls with the even-more-demanding-than-a-toddler teen - I am right here with you (I have 2 teens and a preteen, haha). With all sorts of things happening in my big family I have to ensure that my toddlers are well occupied with meaningful activities each day if I want to catch even 5 minutes without anxiety 🙂 For this reason exploring great learning apps is a must-do for me.

If you are checking out activities for your kids, be sure to browse the features of this one. Readings Eggs has hundreds of things to do and every activity is a learning experience presented in a fun and exciting way; you can hear more about it and get a sneak peak here!

Parents know and understand that raising children costs money in this modern life and it is important to know and understand ways to save when on a family budget. Our family has come a very long way over the years - in fact, there was a point when my partner and I lived in our car on the beach for some weeks as we had used all our savings on what is now our successful business - but that is another story for another time. If you want to learn some of the ways we save money without totally sacrificing a comfortable standard of living for our family then take a quick moment to check out these 10 budget tips for families.
So many mothers have lived that heartbreaking feeling of seeing your child hungry and having nothing and no way to feed them - even if only for one night, this feeling can tear a mother to pieces ...
Marriage is a partnership. The family is the business, the children are the assets and the living expenses are the operational costs. In order for the business to be successful and the assets to grow strong, the partners must be 100% dedicated to each other and the business' goals. Outside distractions (like entertaining skanks for… Continue reading MARRIAGE IS A PARTNERSHIP
Failing at one thing can be the open doorway that we needed in order to see the opportunity on the other side that we had never considered; failure can many times provide us the strength and experience that was missing from our initial effort so that when we do get off the floor we are ready to charge ahead. Failure to properly manage a sudden financial reward in one instance can provide us that keen wisdom we need in order to ensure all goes well should such an opportune moment arise again. The failure of one marriage can very often lead a person to meet and marry their soul mate after the turmoil and madness of divorce before.
