I was clueless when I was pregnant with my first child. Three years later, I still feel clueless, but the decision to put my children on a routine has been one of the best parenting decisions I’ve made for...
I remember when I was trying to potty train my oldest son. That child had the ability to turn our playroom into a poop crime scene of Law and Order: SVU levels. I was pregnant with the triplets at the...
