Gymnast Performs Amazing Tricks With a Ball

When I was 5 years old, my mom surprised me by taking me to see the movie 'Bed Knobs and Broomsticks.' I was thrilled because it was a rare treat to actually go to the movie theatre. My mom had a second surprise though, she had signed me up for dance and gymnastics classes. I was SO happy.

Immediately I began dreaming of all of the crazy flips and daring, gravity defying moves I would be doing...SOON. Well, that didn't happen! I sucked at gymnastics. I was GREAT at dancing, but I SUCKED at gymnastics. So, when I see someone who appears to have built in springs in their legs and two way hinges on their backs, I am completely impressed. If you add a ball to that? INSANE!!!

CVS Pharmacy Wants to Know Employees’ Weight and Body Fat Or They Will Be Charged a Fine

CVS Pharmacy is requiring all employees to submit their weight, body fat, cholesterol and other vitals if they use the company's health plan. If they refuse to submit the information, they will be charged an additional $50 per month for their insurance. On one hand, with rising health insurance costs, I can understand why they want this, but on the other hand, it's very scary and brings up many privacy issues.

The Evolution of Mom Dancing

Ever since I can remember, we danced at my house. My mom would step touch, step touch to the radio while keeping the beat by making a sound with her lips a tongue and snap her fingers. I know now why she put me in dance lessons at the age of five - she wanted me to have better mom dance moves. But after becoming a mom myself, I realize that all moms have the SAME moves. ;-)

Two Year Old Has an Amazing, Unbelievable Basketball Shot [VIDEO]

My sons LOVE sports, especially basketball. Since they could hold a mini basketball in their hands, they were shooting a basket. They didn't always make it but I sure made a big deal when they did.

The parents of THIS kid must have blisters on their fingers from clapping so much. And even though the 'misses' are edited out, the shots are still pretty amazing!

Should Elementary School Kids Get Cut From Sports Teams?

I only ask this question because of something I have been watching over the last two days at my son's school, which I will not identify because it's not about the school - it's about the system in general. The last two days were tryouts for the school's boy’s basketball team. This particular school has a boy’s team and a girl’s team. Yesterday was cut day and the kids who were cut, were absolutely devastated and it got me to thinking. Is getting cut at that level a good thing? My instincts say no.

Should Children Be Kept Off Trampolines [Poll]

While driving around the Tri-State on any given day, it is amazing how many back yards have trampolines. Some have the safety nets, that are usually required for insurance purposes, and some without nets at all. My boys had a trampoline in the back yard until just recently when a tear in the pad got bigger and bigger. The American Academy of Pediatrics said today that trampolines are too dangerous for children in light of more than 100,000 trampoline injuries reported in 2009.

A Lactose Intolerant Nightmare – Whopper With 1,000 Slices Of Cheese

When you’re part rat like we are, you quickly perfect the art of cramming cheese into every available crevice of any sandwich, burrito … bowl of cereal. We fill our grilled cheese with mac and cheese and dunk that in nacho cheese for good measure. It’s an obsession that was once rivaled by our love for bacon until we saw this guy eat an entire package raw.
