This Week’s Buzz: June 20th – June 26th

Father’s Day 

One of the twins was helping me clean the kitchen the other night, and I was pouring on the praise: what a good helper, you make me so proud, I can’t do it without you. He says “okay, but am I the best?” Now, I don’t pretend to be a great mom. I’m just a regular mom. But I do know that no smart parent tells one kid that they are better than the others if they are all siblings and live in the same house. That’s just asking for drama and a future drug problem (obsessed with Bloodline right now). So I say no, not the best, I love them all equally.

Revised AAP Sleep Recommendations for Kids

Revised AAP Sleep Recommendations for Kids As parents we all know the importance of sleep for our kids. A child who is tired is cranky and difficult.
