Books for Kindergartener

My son is not yet reading, but he loves to have chapter books read aloud to him (my husband is currently reading Prince Caspian). I heard the Mercy Watson books are good (is that a boy or a girl pig?...Does that matter?). I want to start getting books that we can read together, but eventually he can read by himself. All we have are the big picture books like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Bear Snores On. Does anyone know of any good books for this next level? Thanks!

Who Should Travel?

I know I will get a good mix of answers to this question....and I am looking forward to them. When a family has small children (new baby, other smalls at home), do you think it is equally their responsibility to travel to visit grandparents, or do you think that because traveling with small children (baby is breastfeeding still) is a task, that most visitors should come to the family with smalls most times? Obviously there will be exceptions just like every question, ie if someone is handicapped and cannot travel, etc etc. I am...

What Was Your Major or Career?

I am 3 classes from getting my associates degree in general studies. Then, I will have to declare a major when I apply to a university. I know what I don't want to do (I am horrible at anything math related), but have no clue what I do want to do. I will get career counseling and take a personality test (myers briggs) to help me narrow it down. But I wanted to know *real world* experiences in the job field and if it relates to your major at all to give me some ideas, because I am stumped. So, if you feel like sharing. What did you major...

Long Car Ride

Does anyone have any ideas and tips on how to keep my 2 year old entertained for an 8 hour car ride. I plan to do a few stops because I also have an 8 month old that I have to feed, but she gets very antsy in the car even for short trips. Thanks for the info!

Breast Pumping on Airplane Flight

I am taking a trip across country soon and I am concerned about breast pumping on the long plane ride. Until recently I didn't even know breast pumping on the airplane was a option. I am currently using the Medela Symphony pump and solely pumping about every 3 to 4 hours at home. The first leg of the flight is 5 hours and the second leg is 3 hours. This does not include extra time to be at the airport and I am unable to pump during the layover in Atlanta. (I hear you have to run to the gate to transfer flights). I am worried about...

Career - What Would You Do?

Current situation: After 15 years into your gig you have a job that pays six figures, is a fairly easy job. You're tenured and there is very little chance of getting whacked since there are at least a dozen hires below you. You get breaks and summers off. Your work environment is supportive and nurturing and your boss rocks. However, you're exceptionally bored at your job and the passion you used to have has been snuffed out. You feel like your talents and skills could be more beneficial in another field and you simply cannot imagine...
