Where are human rights today? Where is the world as this Palestinian is shot at point blank while blindfolded with his hands bound behind his back. In a most vulnerable state as a human being.
Where is the US from this? I wonder if this Israeli soldier will be thrown in jail for this blatant human rights violation. Though, I doubt it

For Lunch, its the same thing. They come home and expect white pasta or the more traditional white rice and can't imagine themselves eating anything with a tinge of brown.
What is a career mom to do? I need to rush to the office in the morning and don't have much time to argue, so I am sad to say that they win more often than I would like. HELP
I'm supposed to raise my children on whole wheat in a white bread world!
I hate white bread, who invented it & why? who thought of bleaching nature's beautiful bounties, nature's warm colors & goodness to deliver to our tables the un-nutritional white products? They must be evil....
Seriously... white bread is bad for you
The problem in Bahrain is not all nearby grocery stores (what we call cold stores) have brown bread on their shelves. I have to go all the way to a bakery to buy brown bread which is 5 times the price of white bread and then I come home to wage the Wheat Battle with my kids! & Brown Rice is out of the question. When you go into a shop to ask for it, they don't even know what you're talking about! Even whole wheat pasta doesn't seem to be readily available...
What's a caring mama gotta do to get her little kiddies to be whole wheat kids...

Some images from the Home Front.
Our doors finally fixed. I love the natural wood color but apparently this has to be painted a darker color. Don't ask! Something about the wood panels used not being solid or something along that direction.
Our cars in the garage! Yipee!
I'm in love with these windows which are on top of the main staircase. They flood this place ith light!
With kids around, you always need to be a Soul Mama, they need your undivided attention, love and care. And I can only give them just that.
Here is a list of what I plan to do for them in the coming few weeks...
1. Buy a few books; they love it when we read to them, Green Eggs & Ham by Dr. Seuss is one of them.
2. Craft Central, I've been thinking of putting together some projects for them to get busy with during the day, including painting, puzzles, math worksheets, etc.
3. I've signed them up for some Quran classes in the morning, a little bit of spirituality to open up their minds.
4. They love swimming and the beach, so maybe once or twice a week, a trip to AlBandar
Can't wait for my annual leave in August, I seriously need some quality family time!
