VACCINATIONS: Hot Topic
Opinion on immunizations vs. not immunizing.
That’s a hot topic these days! I definitely advise all our patients to get vaccinated based on the guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Childhood vaccinations have done such a good job at preventing illnesses that we no longer see many of these vaccine-preventable diseases. Because of this, people have become concerned that the risk of side effects has outweighed the benefit of preventing disease or death. Many people have elected not to immunize their children and as a result ...

I have the best readers of all time. A reader shot me an email several days ago about a service his family uses and I finally got around to looking at the website.
At first I thought.. OK this is great! Someone wants a shout out for their product, let me check it out. But the reader isn't affiliated with Cozi, he is a user that loves it and though Macaroni Kid would be a perfect forum for it. Why?

If you know me, you know that I fear two things in life like nothing else.
Clowns, and spiders.
While I will never be a frequent visitor of the circus, I can avoid clowns like no man's business. Spiders on the other hand...

I am a cooker. I LOVE to cook, especially when the weather turns cooler. In my house you will find pots of real Italian Wedding Soup, Potato and Stuffed Pepper Soups, casseroles, and real homemade dinners. I don't bake, i burn. I stick with what I know, cooking.
I never belived that the right kind of pot could make or break your food dish. I was wrong. Ever tried cooking with a non-stick pan, or a cheap pot? I have, and it never turned out great. They ended up ...

A great Craft for your kid's favorite shirt that doesn't fit anymore!
- Old T-shirt
- Needle and threat (or fusible bonding web, such as Super Weight Stitch Witchery)
- Fabric glue (optional)
Cut off the shirt's sleeves, collar, and bottom as shown.
Turn the shirt inside out and sew up the bottom hem (or close the seam with fusible bonding web). If you like, prevent the shoulder seams from unraveling by putting a few dots of fabric glue on each seam end. Turn the tee right side out, and it's ready to tote!

"A Playground for Thousands, in the Memory of Two..."
Rainbow's End Memorial playground, in Clinton Park, was constructed in Sept of 2000 by a dedicated group of community-oriented people and businesses who relied solely upon funds, materials, and manpower donated by the community.
Many of you may remember the story from a long time ago where a father had killed his two children, a boy and a girl in Findlay Twp. The mom of these kids, Susie Spik is my husband's cousin. After this horrible event, she was traumatized. She lost a ton of weight, and never ...

Kelley Loney- raising money for Ethan!
Kelly Loney is a dear friend of Macaroni Kid through the hardest of circumstances. She and I connected when her son was battling a terrible childhood cancer, neuroblastoma.

She is a rep for My Thirty One and sells the MOST adorable things.
She will be donating all of her commissions to support this cause in her sons memory ...
We went to see the Phantom of the Opera!
Let's start by saying this. If you have not seen the Phantom, we HIGHLY suggest that you do. This is their last year EVER to put on this amazing show!
This beautiful story starts out a little confusing, especially if you do not know the story, as neither Debby or I did! The effects are AMAZING, and when they raise the chandelier at the beginning it takes your breath away!
As soon as they began singing, my heart stopped.
The Phantom's voice could heal the sick. It is ...
(In all fairness, if you are easily offended I suggest that you exit this article immediately!)
I don't know about you other moms out there, but I know that I look at younger girls these days and wonder when in time did it become OK for them to look 30 years old at the mere ages of 10 and 12? These girls wear tons of makeup and have expensive clothes that most of the time look to be 2 sizes too small.
Don't know what I am talking ...
