Am I overreacting?

B. J. asks from Waco

My husband met up with a friend for lunch, and I’m pretty sure he had a couple of drinks while there. He came home while our 2 year old was napping and went strait upstairs to our bedroom. I was in the living room and accidentally fell asleep. Well when our son wok...

Daughter constantly sniffing

K. L. asks from Rancho Mirage

My 5 year old recently had the flu which turned into a ruptured ear drum. She was prescribed the highest dose of amoxicillin for 10 days. During this time she began to constantly sniff. We blow her nose but there is nothing there. Could this be a side effect of the drug?

Should I feel offended or left out?

C. M. asks from Dallas

I moved to a new city 3 years ago and settled my 10 year old son into a private school halfway through the year. The school was the one thing I asked for when we moved as the classes tend to be smaller and I thought it would be easier for my son to adjust. My daughter r...

Having fun with scam callers

M. 6. asks from Woodbridge

I've had a recent increase in "scam" phone calls, telemarketers, poll takers, robo-calls, etc. in the last couple of months. I'm on the DNC list, but these places don't care - and once you are on their list, it can be tough to get off! I do report most of the calls - e...

Ok, so I really, really debated on getting an Instant Pot from like June - November last year. Man, I really struggled with it! I finally decided that with only 1 kid left at home (and leaving in the next few years), it just didn't make sense to add yet another kitchen...

Aside from discussing how our daughters’ school days are going and how we are adjusting to the new norm, the topic of returning to the workforce popped up. Both of us had been asked when we were going back to work since our children were now in school for the whole day…. More

Juicing for Toddlers: Why & How



Now that P is a year old, we are transitioning her off her bottle and onto solid foods and liquids in her sippy cup. In doing so, one of the things we learned right away was that our little peanut LOVES juice. However, I really wanted to avoid store bought juice packed full of sugar and processed junk, so instead, I decided to try juicing for her at home. So I pulled our juicer (affiliate link) down from the pantry and began experimenting with a few recipes of my own.
