It's a newly termed eating disorder utilised by students who don't eat so they can 'save' themselves for alcohol. But drinking and starving a body at the same time skips all of the years of alcohol abuse and plunges a body straight into end-stage alcoholism.
Bear said he was only trying to help. Bear said it was a temptation too much. Bear reached his hand further over the edge, scooped a handful of soil and drew it to his mouth.
Raw ingredients are always fresh and seasonal, with an emphasis on nutritional balance. When available, herbs, squash, and lettuces are picked fresh from our student-run garden. Sometimes, there's a bit of chicken, and often there's a delicious dessert with unexpected ingredients.
There's nothing more annoying - than hearing some ignorant person claiming that all single mums are that way by choice in order to claim state benefits! I do, however, think that there is a danger of some single mums becoming so attached to that status that they forget what else defines them.
Parents assume that the schools will look after their children at least as well or better than they do themselves. However, what if something untoward happens during the school day?
Did your children eat the same meal as you. If the answer is yes, well done you. I am sure you managed to cook the meal from scratch, refused to buy... highly processed children's lunch box snacks from the chilled compartments in the supermarket and a takeaway is a rare treat for special occasion. You should be extremely proud because what you're doing is best for your kids.
There's something wonderful about children's parties. Kids are remarkably social animals and I enjoy watching them interact. I like to try and work out the little cliques that develop and determine which kid is the glue-eating misfit who was only invited because his mother does yoga with the host.
While I've had to adapt my beauty regime over the years to accommodate my changing lifestyle, it is still possible to go from shabby to chic with minimal time and effort, even with the endless interruptions that parenthood entails. Here are my golden rules to being a yummy mummy...
Without really noticing we've been heading towards the end of the traditional outdoors childhood. Something that many millions of adults took for granted is becoming the exception rather than the norm for today's children, where-ever they live.

I propose that Rockstar take a good look at themselves and think when including such nasty sequences and questionable morals into their games, they consider the all too probable notion that kids way under the age of eighteen will be playing along happily without guidance.
A truly heartbreaking experience, nothing can compare to the loss of a child. Whether through miscarriage, stillbirth or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), infant loss is something that touches an astonishingly high number of families, yet many of us are still unaware of the facts.

Just 5 weeks ago I wrote about how hard it was to watch them struggling each day. Since then they have moved with unexpected ease from a 9 - 1.30pm day (summer hours) to a 9 - 4.30pm day. Even the 5 year old who had only ever been to playschool in Ireland until 12.30 has been thrown in the deep end. But they have coped admirably.
