Children of India: Shelley Seale’s Journey with Daughter

Lost and Found

by Shelley Seale

I never expected to be in India. And without a doubt, I never thought once I had been I would return, again and again.

It wasn’t the exotic beauty that drew me back. It wasn’t the storied, ancient history of the country or its rich and varied culture. It was not the colors or the spices or the sounds or the spirituality of the place. India is all of these things, to be sure, and…

Colbie Caillat, Triple Platinum Artist, and Mother Di

As told by Co-Founder, Bradi Nathan:

It’s amazing how children can remember the lyrics to a song but forget to brush their teeth in the morning. My kids can recite every line of the very popular song “Bubbly” by Colbie Caillat. Its upbeat and happy melody has them singing along in the car and to their iPods.…

Clarins USA’s Pamela Lipkin, Director of Accounting, shares on being a working mom

As told by Co-Founder, Bradi Nathan:

I am slightly embarrassed to admit that I do not believe that I would fare well on the hit television show, “Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?” As I assist my son with his math homework each night I wonder, “Am I Smarter Than A Third Grader?” Mode? Range? Who remembers anymore? English. English is a subject that I excel in. Nouns, pronouns and adjectives are much more my speed.

Pamela Lipkin is not only “Smarter Than A Fifth Grader,”… Continue

Heidi Axelrod, Former Beauty Columnist, Town & Country and More Magazine

As told by Butterfly Co-Founder, Bradi Nathan:

My daughter came downstairs this morning with a washcloth draped over her mouth. “I look ugly,” she muffled. After prying away the cloth, I noticed a reddish patch of dry skin next to her tiny pink lips. I told her it wasn’t anything that a dab of Aquaphor couldn’t fix. That’s my beauty tip for the day and I might also add, that all little girls must be taught that…

Recession: How To Talk To Your Kids

Julie Potischman,'s Resident Psychotherapist, shares:

1. How should we talk to our kids about the recession at a time when luxuries like camp are being taken away?

The age of the child is always a factor when answering questions such as this; it is really hard to come up with an answer that meets all ages. Having said that, I believe it is important to talk to our children when luxuries are changing. I think the first thing parents need to… Continue

Golden Globe Style Winners & Sinners

Much like New Year's Eve, the main event of an award show is usually the least interesting part. Whether it's getting dressed or pre-baring with your friends, the hours before usually stand out as the highlight.

The award show equivalent is the miles long fashion parade that precedes every telecast. Thankfully, this year's crop of Golden Globes gowns did not disappoint - the spools of tulle, yards of fabric and truckloads of Spanx that assaulted our senses yesterday have left us with… Continue

A TIP FOR “COMEBACK” MOMS (returning to work…) STEP 2

Your starting point should be to pursue a career not a job, unless you are a single Mom with no support and mouths to feed. This is the best lesson you can teach your children is to be focused on happiness and fulfillment rather than things and money. Think about your strengths, skills/competencies/ gifts and talents as well as your passion and look for work doing THAT… Even though some industries are folding or harder hit than others with very few opportunities you can always… Continue

How come he gets to be sick?

Last week it was my husband who was sick. This week it's my turn. But why did he get to lay in bed and rest for five days and I am still up and running from the time I get home from work taking care of the baby and our home, feeling miserable all the while? I am learining that mom's really don't get to be sick. I think it should be the same for dads though.

Love is in the Air… Literally

Surrounding you right now, at this very second in time, is a plethora of human emotion. The air is literally filled with molecules of energy generated by emotion. Much of this energy is generated by you and the feelings you hold in your heart. The feelings in your heart are directly related to the thoughts you are mulling over in your head. In addition to the energy of your own feelings, you are also surrounded by the energy of other people’s emotions. We each have an effect on the energy that… Continue
