A Child's First Airplane Trip
Submitted by Lesley LaFuze
A day before my 3 year old son's first airplane trip, I tell him the good news. "Tyler, we're going on vacation tomorrow. We're going to fly to see Aunt Tricia."
He took off super excited, squealing with joy. He started zooming all his toys around the house and jumping up and down making everything 'fly'.
About an hour later he comes to me with a very serious and concerned look on his face and says "Mommy, I don't have any wings" and he shows me his arms.

Assembly line babies
Submitted by Courtney
I have three sons, twin two year olds and a one year old, so for those of you who have twins or triplets I have a method I call assembly line babies.
Do all of them at the same pace, when you have them in the tub, don't wash one then the next...do it my way... wash, wash, wash, rinse, rinse, rinse, diaper, diaper, diaper, clothes, clothes, clothes. You'll save yourself loads of fun. And it works at most anything else. When filling sippy cups, do them all in one go, and all the same drink. With my three sons I find "assembly line babies" is my only chance at survival.
