    What to Do When Your Child's Pet Dies

    What to Do When Your Child's Pet Dies

    “Our dog Chloe was really old for a dog, and couldn’t do that much stuff anymore. She couldn’t see or hear, so someone came to our house and put her to sleep. I felt really, really sad, because she was a good, behaving dog. I started crying. The whole family was sad because they loved her. I still miss her,” says nine-year-old Audrey Jones. There’s no doubt having a pet is a special part of childhood. Pets bring joy and fun to a household. So how do you handle it when that pet dies?

    Stocking Up On Meals Before (and After) Baby’s Arrival

    Stocking Up On Meals Before (and After) Baby’s Arrival

    Let’s get real here. Once your baby arrives, you won’t have time for basic hygiene, let alone cooking. Babies are on their own time schedule, which means when you’re ready to prepare a fabulous five-course meal, your crying bundle of joy is ready to be held nonstop. And who wants to spend Baby’s future college fund on take-out? Besides, the goal is to lose the baby weight, not to pack on more pounds eating pizza day and night just because it’s a quick fix.

    When My Mom Broke Scrabble

    When My Mom Broke Scrabble

    I had no social life in college. My hard-working immigrant parents couldn’t afford my college tuition, so I bartended at a TGI Fridays full time, leaving me with no energy and no time to go to parties and do keg stands. When I wasn’t working, I’d come home from school, catch up on my studying and then set up the Scrabble board on the kitchen counter. My playing partner was Jacqueline, a cousin who lived only two houses away because Cubans have a tendency to stick together, regardless of the country. Jacqueline was only thirteen years old but mature for her age, so much so that I'd often forget she was still a budding teenager. I would talk to her about school, bartending, boys, everything. She would sit and listen to me and offer me feedback.

    Traveling with Kids!

    Traveling with Kids!

    Travelling in general is stressful, but when you add a young child or children in the mix it can get a whole lot more exhausting. I have been travelling with my daughter since she was six months. Although it is challenging at times, we are left with no choice but to travel with our children; this, however, shouldn't make it an unpleasant memory.

    Guide to Choosing a Mattress for Children's Health

    Guide to Choosing a Mattress for Children's Health

    It's not a secret anymore that you need a quality mattress to power through your day without any tiredness or heaviness in the body and mind. When you feel your body is giving up due to ache and discomfort, the first thing that you need to check is the condition of your mattress. A damaged or old bed can fail to relax your body. The same thing can happen with your kid if his or her mattress is not proper. A kid can be healthy and active only when he or she gets sound sleep. And as you are aware, the choice of a surface on which your kid sleeps can play a substantial role in this.
