Breast Cancer. Those are two words that no woman ever wants to hear. But my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and sister have all been among those who have been given the devastating diagnosis. Sadly they’re not alone. Every year approximately 250,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed. But did you know that it’s the most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer death among Hispanic and Latina women.
My mom is 75 years old. While you might think that being just years from 80 means you’re old, my mom is living proof that it can be anything but! In fact, she’s got a more positive outlook and happier demeanor than she’s had at any other time in her life and because of a gym membership her fitness level has improved as well.
The calendar says it’s fall, so why are the sprinklers still running? And sandals and shorts are still in the forefront of my closet. But I’m not complaining, having a slower descent into the rain and dreary season here in Seattle is fine with me. But it does confuse my mind when I see the colors of fall everywhere in stores, but nature has fallen behind.
I’m loving the new line of PLAYSKOOL Play Stow and Go toys that were created with parents in mind. These shape sorting, stacking, and discovery toys are designed to store within themselves so you’ll never have to search for pieces. Plus it makes them completely portable and easy to pop into a diaper bag for fun on the go.
