        Breaking news today that John Edwards is admitting that he lied all through his Presidential campaign when he said, over and over again, that he did not have an affair with a young woman, Rielle Hunter, a filmmaker when the National Enquirer first accused him in October.  She has since had a female baby that he denies is his child; but, there supposedly has been no paternity testing to prove or deny that claim.  Another man has said that he is the father of the child; a man by the name of, Andrew Young.  He  was a former campaign aide.  The child was born in February of this year…the affair began in 2006…but he doesn’t say for sure when it ended…just that the affair ended too soon for the child to be his.

        John Edwards’ wife Elisabeth has fought and battled cancer for years…she was in remission…however, she has now been diagnosed with a form of cancer that is incurable.  I remember an interview, that she did at the time that it was announced she had incurable cancer…and i thought…how strong she was…how composed.  Now to think that she had to also deal with the knowledge of her husband’s affair during that time…just makes me realize how much stronger she was, than anyone knew.  It also makes me wonder how he thought he would be able to support his wife during her battle, run for President, all the while knowing that this affair could harm his family and come out in the press.  How was Elisabeth able to handle the difficulty of the disease as well as the emotional trauma of the affair?

        It was said that as recently as two weeks ago, he was still denying an affair with this woman…and yet, a month ago he had a meeting with her; an now he admits the affair. 

        That can only mean one thing in my mind; somewhere, someone has proof that can’t be denied.  There will be an investigation, i am sure, about whether she was paid hush money as she denied the affair at one point as well.  If it can be proven that he paid her money to keep it quiet…there will be an even bigger news story here.  (more…)

      Once again the news has been covering a recent trend of crimes regarding an obsession with what lies within; another woman has been found dead after having her baby cut out of her womb.  This scenerio has been happening all too frequently over the last decade or so…women being killed for the babies that they carry inside of their wombs.  It leaves a terrible legacy of emotional difficulties for family and friends not to mention the child; if it miraculously survives the amateur delivery.

          In many of the cases, the women who do the killing have had an obsession with having a baby or being pregnant; often they have tricked those closest to them into believing they are pregnant and about to deliver.  Then, after they have stolen an infant, they try to pass it off as their own birth child.  (more…)

        This was a very sad state of parenthood to learn about.  It seems that a woman in Georgia found out that her teenaged son and his underaged girlfriend were expecting a baby.  Mom or grandmother decided that they weren’t ready for parenthood.  She took it upon herself to contact the girlfriend and convince her NOT to tell her parents about the pregnancy and to have an abortion.  She alienated the girls parents right to love, support, and guide their daughter during one of the most important decisions she would ever make in her lifetime. 

        The boys mother, Cindi Cook, forged a note saying she was the girls mother and gave consent for the abortion.  A judge said she was guilty of interferring with child custody and of breaking the parental notification law regarding abortion.  She will be in jail for a year now because of the guilty verdict.  There may be repercussions for the clinic involved as well; since they allegedly didn’t follow through and verify Cindi Cook’s claim of parentage of the teenaged girl.  (more…)

         Nick and Mariah sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G, first comes love, then come marriage; at least that is the reported rumor all over the net.  Nick Cannon is a rap singer and he and Mariah Carey have been seeing each other for a little over a month.  Supposedly, this past Wednesday they got married in the new home that Mariah bought in the Bahamas.  It was alledgedly a small intimate wedding with just a few friends and family present.

          But, if you think the next phrase of the song; then comes a baby carriage, applies to Miss Mariah Carey Cannon, you have not heard what she said recently.  She supposedly said that her dog was enough for her.  🙂  Since there are also rumors that there was no prenuptial agreement, I hope that there is no custody fight if all doesn’t go well in the land of love.

          Update May 08, 2008:  Today it is official…Mariah and Nick have confirmed their marriage to People magazine.  They have tatoo’s as well to celebrate their forever love. Mariah said that they have talked about having children.  She says that is a part of the whole reason to get married.  Well, this must be serious…everyone knows that tatoo’s are forever…unless you have alot of money and a high pain tolerance and are willing to endure a little discomfort to have them removed!   Congrats Mariah and Nick…may your marriage last till the end of time.

      It is a curiosity for some…a religious sign for others and a medical concern for those who know of such matters.  A baby was born with two faces, approximately a month ago, in India to a poor farming family.

       Those in the medical field want to do medical testing on the child to see how healthy she is and whether she needs medical attention.  The family forbids it…that is their right.  The child appears to be doing well as far as eating and such.  But there is concern about how the child is formed inside whether she will live a long healthy life. 

       The family of the two faced baby believe as do others in their culture; that she is a reincarnation of a Hindu goddess of power.  Everyone is entitled to their beliefs and as her parents they are within their rights to forbid medical intervention.  They say that she is not suffering and that she is eating with both of her mouths and she blinks all four eyes.  Still, in America she would be considered a special needs child and every avenue would be explored to find the best treatments available for this baby.

        You have to wonder about her future.  When she is able to walk; how will she hold up her head?  Will her brain (brains) struggle for control of the rest of her body?  I hope that she is well and lives healthily…but, with people in her culture worshipping her; even if she survives infanthood, it will be very difficult emotionally to be so very different from everyone else.

        My Christian beliefs cause me to flinch when i hear that this child is being worshipped and that she is perceived as a goddess.  God’s word (the Holy Bible) says that we may have no other god’s before him.    May God have mercy on them as they struggle to deal with the challenges ahead.

        Our two new pups became bathing beauties today.  They did not appreciate the experience!  LOL  Evidently (they are only 6 weeks old), they have had the pleasure of a bath before because, they started whinning as soon as they saw the tub of water.

         They are adorable black lab mixed dogs.  By nature they should love water.   The pups then thought it was a house of torture to be toweled; and then fluffed with the hair dryer on the lowest setting.  Their hair just shines now.  Such pretty babies they are.

          It was absolutely entertaining watching them then, put their heads down and push their shoulders and whatever other body parts they could along on the carpet and the edge of the couch in an attempt to dry off more and get comfortable again.

           The kids loved being their heros after the experience by cuddling and laughing at them as they snuggled in for comfort.

           I can’t say much for the smell of wet dog except to say that on the kids movie, Monster’s Inc, when they talk about putting on stinky under arm “orderant” called wet dog everyone knows exactly the smell they are talking about.  Not very pleasant…good thing they are absolutely cute puppies!

          It is too bad puppies can’t stay so adorable as they age.  They will have their own adorability as they age but there is nothing like a baby puppy to entertain and warm your heart with their antics!

     Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have welcomed a new life…their baby girl was born in the last twenty four hours.  I hope that now that their child is born, that the media will not hound them and chase them around looking for ways to glorify and vilify them as parents, like they do so many other celebrities.
