Fake sleeping in the same room as your kid to get them to fall asleep - I think EVERY parent has done this. Haven't you seen that viral video of the mom fake sleeping on her toddler's nursery floor, then crawling out slowly after her kid passes out? The move is pretty standard, but sadly for me my toddler has not only figured out that I am faking it, but has a strategy to get me to crack too. You can't just break formation in front of a toddler like that!!! The bed time struggle is so real right now... please tell me there are other toddler moms out there who are on the struggle bus too!

How do you prepare your dog for life with a new baby? This can be particularly difficult, especially in instances like ours where we had our dog for YEARS before having a kid, and she had limited exposure to children beforehand.

Reactive Airway Disease... what is it? If your baby is suffering from breathing problems, you may have heard the term "reactive airway disease" before. It basically means that your child's airways are delicate and breathing can be affected by many things such as cold weather and illness, and they may or may not have asthma. Asthma is not diagnosed until at least age two... something I did not know! This story is about our run-in with reactive airway disease that landed us in the hospital, and the amazing care we received from Children's Hospital in Seattle.
