A person is determined to be male or female while in the fetal stage, during the first trimester of gestation.

Pet Care #1: Do Rabbits Make Good Pets?

Growing up, I recall my Grandmother urging me to eat my carrots.  “Have you ever seen a rabbit with glasses?” she’d ask.

Pet Care Series #2: Are Ferrets Safe and Friendly?

Would you like to own a ferret?  Only about 500,000 Americans currently do, and that’s down from about 725,000 seven years ago, according to available statistics. Compare that to some 35 million cat owners or 48 million dog owners, and even 2-3 million pet rabbit owners.  Clearly, ferrets aren’t for everybody.

Stay-At-Home Moms Work Too: These Are The Things I Do

As a stay-at-home-mom and my household’s caretaker, I have a LOT of cleaning and cooking to do each day.
