“When should I take my kids to their first dental visit?” Most of my friends have children around the same age as my children, so I’ve heard this question quite a bit over the years. Most people think they...
So I went back and forth with the title… should I use the word “poop” or maybe say “stay regular”? I decided to stick with “poop” because it is what it is, and as parents, let’s be honest; we...
Our family will be welcoming baby #3 in the next month and we are all beyond excited (and ready) to finally meet our next little guy. Of course, just the thought of adding a newborn with an almost-four year...
