A weekend trip puts me in a tailspin. I spend most of Friday trying to gather up everything everyone needs, and I usually — like 99 percent of the time — forget something.

We arrive. My husband helps unload the car, and I’m the one who usually — like 99 percent of the time — figures out where everything should go. Sunday rolls around, and it’s back to packing, reloading, unloading and storing.

Help! My Teen Wants to Be a Vegetarian

By Megan S. Willman


For many teens, an interest in becoming a vegetarian is more than a passing fad. A true commitment to health and social justice concerns can form the start of a life-long commitment. But for a parent it can pose overwhelming changes in the kitchen and at the grocery.

A Tough Illness for a Young Family

Brand new parents are often surprised by how much poop and spit-up a newborn baby can produce. If it isn’t your first rodeo, however, you know what to expect and how much laundry detergent to have on hand.

Jennifer Walls Dalton was already a mom to Taylor and Levi when her third child, Peyten, came along in 2012, so she knew that the copious vomiting and diarrhea were beyond the scope of what a normal newborn produces. Plus, Peyten was a very fussy baby. Jennifer says, “No matter what formula we tried, she was sick all the time.”
