Dressing up as a family for Halloween is one of my favorite things to do. I am trying to fully enjoy it while my son is young and will go along with my ideas. I know he will prefer to choose his own costume in a few years. I am sharing five family Halloween costume ideas and where to get the items. … One of our favorite movies is The Greatest Showman. I knew we could easily replicate a similar look as Zenya and Hugh Jackman’s characters in the movie. We chose to have Turner be an animal from the circus.

How To Brush Your Teeth

Developing good brushing habits at an early age is important for your child's dental health and overall health. To give your child a healthy start, take time to have them brush their teeth twice a day. The best times to brush are after breakfast and at night before bed. Kids are usually ready to brush on their own by age seven or eight.

Today’s 10,000“I’m not walking at the mall.” … My walking buddy’s tone made it clear that no argument could convince her otherwise. Heeding the advice to strive for 10,000 steps every day, our intrepid group had been walking every morning since February when the June heat shut us down completely. It was just too hot. I had brought up the idea of walking at the mall, and she had shut that down, too. … Eventually, my need for my daily steps drove me to announce to the group that I would be walking at Central Mall the next day, and anyone who wanted to join me was welcome.

From Devastation to Determination

Wearing striped pajamas, laying on a bed of wooden slats, a 13-year-old orphan girl named Alexandra wished for death.

Overcoming the Darkness

Not many people know, but 1960 marks the year that the world was blessed with a little boy named Oree Bradley. He was the fourth of six children, and they lived outside the city limits of Emerson, Arkansas. The Bradley family lived so far out of the city limits that when Oree started school in 1965, the school bus would not come down his country road because the condition of that road was so bad. To get to school, Oree and his siblings would walk almost a mile down a trail that intersected with a more bus-friendly road. There, the Bradley children would board the bus and go to school.

Our son Jaxon was born with a head full of hair. Our friends even joked he looked like a little weatherman ready to report. … I remember at the age of three when we first noticed spots of hair loss, the size of a dime. We initially thought that rubbing his head on the car seat might have caused it until more spots appeared, and the first ones became larger. At one point, he had a few areas the size of half dollars. We asked his pediatrician about the hair loss at his yearly check-up, but Jaxon was healthy.
