Potty Training--How do you go from little potty to big potty?

1 hour ago -

V. T. asks from Chantilly - I trained my daughter on the big potty so I didn't have this problem. I thought it would be easier to train my boys on little potties so they could go at the same time. It looks like we finally go them where they go on their own without even asking or us having to tell ...

Grace and Hopes in Dirty Carpets

January 27, 2015

It started with shoes and carpet.

On the main floor of our old house all we had was tile and hardwood. Over several years of living there, all of us got used to just walking into the house with our shoes on. Sometimes, I got sick of the mud and dirt tracked in, but it wasn’t anything some soapy water couldn’t fix. Basically, my requests for ‘shoes off’ fell on deaf ears….More

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot. The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
