As my daughter was reading her favorite book series one night last week she stumbled upon a huge error. She scratched out a note on a paper towel so she would remember where she left off when she discovered it.
With the kids out of school for the summer, they might be tempted to lounge around and lose themselves in a game on a screen. But parents will have a plan! And it might involve adding some new furry friends to the family.
You know it's going to happen. A couple of months from now when most of us are bundled up head-to-toe battling the wind and cold rain with hats, thick coats, and cozy lined pants, some other brave soul will walk by in shorts. What possesses these people?
Even though the CDC says it's not the best idea, parents are still throwing parties to get their kids in the same room with another child who has the chicken pox, to expose them and boost immunity down the road. Is this a good idea?
If you're able to whip in and whip out when you're picking up the kids from school, there are a whole lot of other parents who are jealous of your mastery of the situation. Sometimes it takes a half hour, and that leaves plenty of time for things like power naps.
