Hey moms! I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far. Here’s what’s going on over at SantaRosaMom.com:
Mother-Daughter Look-a-Like Contest
Ever hear someone tell you “You two could be sisters!” or “She looks just like you did at that age!” when people see you with your daughter? Then you’re meant to enter our latest contest! We’re looking for look-a-like moms and daughters to enter their photos for a chance to win a Spa Day for Two, or a Poolside Soiree for up to 20! Interested? Check out the competition by perusing the photos already entered, then put your name in the hat by submitting a photo of your own. Oh, and good luck!
This spring weather has me craving a healthy treat perfect for sunny days – smoothies! But if we’re not careful, those “healthy” treats are not much better (and sometimes worse) than dessert. I’ve included some recipes, as well as tips on healthier smoothies for the family. But I’m really hoping you’ll share some of your favorite recipes with me in the comments.
Spring is also time for GARDENING – especially for creating veggie gardens. I mean, who doesn’t prefer the freshness of homegrown vegetables? And a way to create even more healthy plants is by using your food waste to make your own nutrient-laden compost. If you’re not sure how to even start, you won’t want to miss this weekend’s Gardening Clinic at Friedman’s Home Improvement. Details on composting as well as the clinic are available at SantaRosaMom.com.
Dog stays with lost toddler
I loved sharing this story of a faithful dog who refused to leave his toddler human’s side when the 2 year old wandered away from home and got lost. The story was incredible heartwarming and ended well.
8 year old pepper sprayed
This was not such a heartwarming story – an 8 year old became highly violent, and ended up being pepper sprayed by the police. Some claim it was way too harsh of a tactic to use on a 2nd grader. Others believe the police did the right thing. I have my own opinion on this situation, what’s yours?
Have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you on the forums!

I read your “Stress Relief for Busy Moms” article in Friday, April 8, 2011 PressDemo paper and would like to send it to my daughter. Can you, send me the link or tell me where to find it on line, please? I have been looking, but have not found it. Thank you.
It’s at http://winecountrymom.blogs.santarosamom.com/13254/8-ways-to-relieve-stress/. I’ll email it to you too. Thank you so much for passing along the article!
