Checking In With The Sisters

by Stacey

With our ever growing 5 Minutes for Mom family we wanted to take a few minutes to check-in with our sister-sites. Here is just a sampling of some of the amazing posts that have gone up this week!

When purple ketchup appeared on the grocery store shelves a few years ago, I just couldn’t bring myself to try it. It just didn’t seem right. So, how do you choose which foods you will try? Deborah shares with us this week how Ashley, a child with sensory impairments, uses the “Touch, Smell, Lick” technique to chose her foods. Head over to 5 Minutes for Special Needs to see how a pickle faired in Ashley’s test!

As the school year draws to a close, few parents (or kids) are looking ahead to next fall and the new school year, unless you are a parent who’s child will be entering kindergarden, middle school, high school, or college for the first time next fall. Those parents are anticipating orientations and the unknowns surrounding this time. Veronica writes about her daughter’s kindergarden orientation this week at 5 Minutes for Parenting and it is one not to be missed!

How do you deal with challenges that face you in life? If you’re like me, it usually involves stress and, occasionally, some doubt. At 5 Minutes for Faith, Amy compares those challenging times we face to how a baby eagle learns to fly. See how this amazing story can be applied to your life and walk when you “Fly Like An Eagle“.

Did you read the much talked about Angels & Demons or The Da Vinci Code? Have you seen the movies? Whether you have and loved them or just didn’t care for the movie after reading the book; if you haven’t, but are intrigued by the books and movies, you will enjoy the review of Angels & Demons on 5 Minutes for Books. Kipi shares her thoughts on the book vs. the movie vs. The Da Vinci Code.

As you get your Spring cleaning done and tackle those Spring projects around the house, this is a prefect time to take a look at your Indoor Air Quality! Did you know that indoor pollutants can actually trigger a lot of different health issues? Marizela talks us through the different things we can do to improve our Indoor Air Quality this week at 5 Minutes for Going Green!

As always, don’t forget to check out all of the great giveaways happening at 5 Minutes for Giveaways and be sure to enter our Lands’ End swimsuit giveaway and our Father of the Year Contest!!! Also, a great way to make sure you don’t miss out on these great posts and more is to subscribe to each sites’ RSS feed! You can find those feed links in the left sidebar on each site!

Lots of goodies there!

At one time, didn’t you have a sister site for fitness/weight loss? I can’t seem to find that one.
