We have a "no TV" rule in our house. The rule is: No TV during the week. You'd think it would make our life harder, but it actually makes it easier. This is because our kids are TV zombies....
I had a few epiphanies after having my second child. Kids can stay in the same outfit all day. Naptime doesn’t require wrestling moves. And it turns out that they can hear you the first time you tell them...
We could have gone in many different directions for the content of this post with a title like that, but let's keep it clean, folks. I'm here today to talk about the importance of actually playing with toys. You...
I first noticed it in photographs. My 3-year-old’s left eye would appear turned in while the other eye looked straight on. Then other people started noticing and it started to happen more frequently where I saw it increase in...
