Crispy Vegetarian Roll-ups


I have found this recipe easy to make yet very popular with my kids and grand-kids especially when they participate in the making of their own tortilla. Other veggies of their choice can be substituted and works great with leftovers.  The first one home can get this dinner started.  Everyone can use their own favorite veggies that they choose from the following list...

OSA- Could It Be Why?

Lazy, dumb, slow, trouble maker, etc...all common labels on students not making the grade in school. However, a child’s academic performance may not be lack of intelligence or even poor behavior. School difficulties may, in fact, be caused by poor quality sleep. 18 Million people, including both children and adults, suffer from a problem called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).

Gail's Parenting Blog Introduction


When I was pregnant with my first child, Jay, I read many books on raising children.  I thought this made me an expert and I then knew all about children and how they behaved.  When Jay was born he did not follow the books, so I believed the books were wrong and concluded, “So, this is what children are really like.”  After all, I had a child and so I knew everything!  Right?  Then David was born.  He was different than Jay.  How could that be?  By the time Bobby and Andrew came along, I began to realize that all children are different and I really did not know very much.  Later, as the children began to teach me, and I experienced more of life, I realized how little we really know about raising children.  This is such an important task, and most of us are not prepared...
