Our kids are ACTUALLY killing us!

napping

The other day my husband and I were arguing--you don't need to know about what, that's between him, me and the upstairs neighbors that might have heard us. I tell you about the argument because he had the audacity to try and use a nap I took against me. As if napping is a bad thing, a sign of weakness, a sign that I don't care enough about my kids or him, as in I could have been cleaning the toilet instead of napping. Okay, I may be over-reacting, but not really. I set him straight right then and there. I am sleep-deprived, my children keep me sleep deprived by waking me up at night ALL the time and getting up too early. I am in a constant state of tired and it's not good for me and it's not good for them either. He may have rolled his eyes at me because of the grandiosity of how I put it, but it turns out that I am right: losing sleep is not only bad for your health it can also be deadly. So I am doing myself and the world a favor by napping.

Why is sleep deprivation bad?

La navidad solía ser aterradora para Elise James, una mujer británica de 44 años.

Cierran escuelas por brote de CONJUNTIVITIS que ha infectado a miles de niños

En mi casa cuando alguien tenía conjuntivitis se hervía agua y en ella se disolvía un paquetico de ácido bórico (venía en unos sobresitos que vendían en la farmacia). Luego mi abuelita o mi mamá, nos lavaban los ojos con esa agua boricada tibia. Con gazas nos limpiaban los párpados y pestañas. Y no dejaban que nadie pusiera su cabeza en la almohada del "infectado", porque si algo es contagioso es precisamente la conjuntivitis.

Así será que en Samoa, el territorio insular estadounidense que está en el océano Pacífico entre Hawaii y Nueva Zelandia, tuvieron que cerrar 28 escuelas por un brote de conjuntivitis que infectó a unos 2,300 mil estudiantes y 130 profesores.
