Team WhyMommy Virtual Science Fair- Our Experiment was Cool… and Messy

April 7, 2010 by · 5 Comments

Team WhyMommy Today I am joining a lot of Mommy Bloggers out there to support Susan, aka WhyMommy;

She is a great mom, cool blogger… AN ASTROPHYSICIST (How cool is that?!) and a cancer fighter and survivor.

Today she is undergoing surgery… again.

To Honor Susan and her love and attention to Science, we did a Science Experiment!

Now, I am NOT an astrophysicist, and neither is my son, although who knows, he may be some day-

so we took a page from an experiment we saw on WETA KIDS.  And that’s a lesson in itself- you don’t have to make-up your own science experiment, if your child is excited to try an experiment they’ve seen… go do it!

My son wanted to make canals of water, change their direction and flow, and see how gravity affects the water canals.

We started out by digging the canals with a couple of different ways the water could go-

canal 1

Then we blocked one of the canals-
canal 2

But we soon found out that water can go around a blockage, so we did it again,
canal 3

This Time, we were successful!
canal 4

And we watched our ball continue down the canal that we wanted!

But that wasn’t it for us- we decided, since we had dug up part of a flower bed in our back yard,
and already ‘watered’ it-

that we would plant flower seeds all over !!!!!
canal 5 flowers

Because We Are ALL ABOUT New Life, Living, and Planting Seeds of Hope
Here at BananaBlueberry!

And That’s How We Roll!

These Flowers Seeds are FOR YOU SUSAN!

‘Womenomics’ Book Party at PunditMom’s

On Thursday I had pleasure of going to PunditMom‘s house for a great Book Party! The Book- Womenomics– By Claire Shipman and Katty Kay.

What a lovely morning- coffee, good discussion, great women… and a welcome distraction from my son’s last day going to camp or school at Bradley Hills Nursery School where we’ve both grown up over the past 3 years…

But back to the Book Party-

I like this book. I’m not done it yet, but it is inspirational. It is practical too: some may think-

‘I can’t negotiate with my boss?!’
‘I need my job, I’m not going to ask for more.’

But that’s the point of this book- you can- you have to start thinking that you can,

and work from there.

Katty Kay and Claire Shipman are warm, welcoming and smart,


Check out the book, it’s our time ladies!



The Tao of Scrapbooking

Tao: a way, path, route, doctrine, principle, philosophy

I’ve never… scrapbooked.  There, I said it. 

I have lots of photo albums filled with pictures of my son.  I even have them organized into ‘just my son’s life’ albums and general family photo albums…

So now I’m going to further document my son’s life with scrapbooks-

nursery school programs, a little artwork, the lock of hair from his first haircut, leftover pictures that I have in a box…

and then it hit me as I was going through all this stuff-

My Scrapbook is a Book of Scrap… or it will be  because I haven’t done it yet… 

Or will it?

Some Search Engine Help

January 16, 2009 by · Leave a Comment

I have stumbled upon,

no pun intended, a couple of sites that may increase your traffic!

Disclosure: I have yet to do Stumble It, Digg, or, but I am working behind the scenes on my site and working on increasing web traffic.

I found out about these sites over at The Big Piece of Cake, a great mom blog about motherhood, fashion and everything else. I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting Kate in person and she’s great! We sat next to each other at a luncheon sponsored by Giant Food and joked that we must have been invited because they thought that we were both food bloggers… get it: Big Piece of Cake, BananaBlueberry.

Yes, we’re hysterically funny… anyway, the sites that I referred to up above are Condron and Alpha Inventions. Condron is a rolling list of blogs, hey- it’s a blogroll! And Alpha Inventions puts up your blog when you are updating it in order to connect bloggers and commenters in real time… at least that is what I took from their About Page (which is a pretty entertaining rambling, I might add).

Check them out and if you know of similar sites (I spelled ‘similar’ right that time), let me know! And please share your thoughts on Stumble It, Digg, or!

And The Winner Is…
