In fact, I feel uncomfortably typing it here for this blog post.
There’s no bigger rule to be broken than the “no white after Labor Day” rule.
Consequences may or may not put son on track

We’re three weeks away from the biggest shopping day of the year — Black Friday.
While images of people camped out in Walmart and Target parking lots come to mind, we wanted to find out how people really intended to spend this consumer holiday. We also wanted to know how they planned to spend their money — buying gifts for others or for personal use.
So we turned to Tada.com, which is obsessed with reporting on all the things that online shoppers value, which recently released a consumer spending report. The below infographic is based on responses from 6,354 online shoppers who were surveyed immediately after checking out.
Here are a few interesting tidbits from the survey…

Every child has their own unique sensitivities. One child may act shy when introduced to new people, while another child may dislike getting dirty. If your child is sensitive to darkness, you can rest assured that she is not alone.
Sensitivity to darkness is often thought of as a fear, and can easily become a fear when children’s emotions about being in and sleeping in the dark are not taken seriously. This issue can stem from many things.
Educators commonly note that children who have an apprehension of the dark tend to be very creative, free thinkers. It may be that this creative thinking starts working overtime when darkness hits, causing the child to imagine the worst. There are a few things you can do to help calm the tension.
Food waste is a major global issue that affects the environment, economy and food security.
According to a 2012 report by the National Resources Defense Council, American families throw out 25 percent of the food they buy. That’s roughly the equivalent of $1,500 wasted each year.
Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, who participated in Food Network’s “The Big Waste” special and serves as a judge on “Chopped,” is encouraging food enthusiasts to love food more and waste it less, one day at a time.
When your child is learning to read, there’s a good chance that the curriculum used by his teacher will rely heavily on the memorization of and ability to recognize sight words.
The Dolch List of Basic Sight Words is comprised of 220 words that can assist in the corrections of reading difficulty or help prevent those problems from occurring when properly memorized.
Some of these words, however, don’t sound exactly like they’re spelled and can be challenging for young readers to decipher using the “sound it out” phonics method.
Tech-savvy parents can use the following 10 apps to help their children master sight words and foster a love of reading.
Did you know that most people don’t wash their hands long enough? It’s gross.

Ah! We’re excited to announce this Friday’s momaha story time theme: Lions.
The majority of U.S. children have been spanked at some time in their life, despite a robust body of evidence suggesting that spanking a child leads to problems.
The latest evidence of the negative effects of spanking comes from researchers at Columbia University. After analyzing data from more than 1,500 families, they found that children who are spanked in early childhood are not only more likely to be aggressive as older children, but they are also more likely to do worse on vocabulary tests than their peers who had not been spanked.
A report on the study was published this week in the journal Pediatrics.
When you think about adopting a puppy, visions of perfect moments dance in your family’s heads, no?
You think of all of the hugs, cuddles, licks, sweet eyes, laughs and giggles you’ll share together, but there is a dark side to owning a puppy that you must face head on and be ready to conquer upon adoption.
It’s the poop on the floor, holes in your socks, separation anxiety and very early mornings.
We couldn’t wait to see all of your witches, goblins, zombies, princesses and super heroes.
Halloween bowling? What?
