The Anti Vaccine Argument

When I hear about parents choosing not to vaccinate their kids, I get mad. How could people be so ignorant as to risk their children's health, and potentially the health of other kids around them? Polio, Measles, Diptheria and other nasty diseases are life-threatening, but now more and more people are choosing not to protect their kids from them. How did we get here?

How To Get Your Kids To Sleep In Their Own Beds In Four Easy Steps

I woke up at six o'clock this morning, and my husband was not in my bed. I checked the bathroom, and he was not there. I glanced into the living room - not there either. He wasn't rummaging through the kitchen for an early morning snack. His running shoes were in our front hallway, so he had not gone out for an early morning run without disturbing me. Where was he???
