Does Santa give out STEM (science technology engineering and math) toys for Christmas to good little girls and boys? Absolutely! In the mix of gift-giving, STEM toys are so creative and fun now that your child will enjoy learning for hours and hours. Toys that challenge, inspire, and encourage creation are the true winners after the heap of wrapping paper has been swept away. Here’s a variety of new STEM toys of 2022 broken down by age category. If you are buying toys for a Charity toy drive, consider STEM toys as well. Children from underrepresented communities often could use a little additional boost in learning, and these toys are perfect for self-learning and growth exploration. (more…)

My mother is headed south soon to get out of the cold and she asked me what was open in Naples, Florida. “Mom, don’t expect things to be normal. Things are not normal here.” She was exasperated. She wanted to know if her favorite Persian…
I’ve been taking CBD for a few years now and not to toot my own horn, but I was one of the first to blog about CBD for Moms in 2018. The CBD industry was just revving up and there was still a lot of confusion about it.
Here’s a Crash Course in CBD if you still don’t understand what it is or what it does:
CBD & UTIs
Urinary tract infections are a major women’s health concern:
- Women have a 30x greater risk of UTIs than men.
- About 50% of women will get a UTI once in their lifetime.
- As many as 40% of women who get a UTI will have another one within six months.
CBD could help with UTIs in a couple of ways. If you have a UTI, CBD may help to alleviate pain and inflammation and potentially aid in the combat of the bacteria causing it. Due to its potential antibacterial qualities, CBD — when used consistently — might help prevent UTIs. If you’ve suffered from UTIs, then you’re my people. UTIs are absolutely the worse and the pain can go up to a level 10 within hours if the infection escalates. So to prevent an infection from ever getting started, I am thrilled to be proactive with my bladder health by taking the Serenity UTI Relief & Support softgel (60mg nano CBD per serving).
Studies suggest that, as an anti-inflammatory, EPO may help with many wellness matters that are important to women. These include:
- Skin issues
- PMS symptoms
- Hot flashes
- Breast soreness
- Heart health
CBD & MENOPAUSE
There are legions of endocannabinoid receptors in the female reproductive system. So, CBD might ease the pain, hormone-induced mood fluxes, skin breakouts, sleep difficulties, and other bothersome symptoms that are often associated with menstrual cycles. For menopausal women, CBD could do many of the same things plus possibly help with temperature regulation (hot flashes) and bone density.
