As a huge Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime fan, it’s great to sit on the couch and use your cell phone as a remote to stream your favorite TV shows & movies. Additionally, Chromecast is excellent for watching YouTube videos in HD on your TV. Within seconds you can find a video from YouTube on your phone and have it play directly on your TV. I’ve also found Chromecast to be an excellent alternative to an Apple TV. As long as you’re using the Chrome web browser you can stream your desktop right to your TV from a Mac or PC.

Here’s how it ought to work: If you’re sick, you make an appointment to visit your primary care physician, the one you’ve spent years developing a relationship with.

Like anything in life, planning ahead makes all the difference in finding what
Abercrombie Kids, a clothing line marketed to children ages 7-14, recently began selling a "push-up" bikini top. Needless to say, many people were disgusted. Thanks to the power of the Internet, it only took a few days for Abercrombie to change the name of the bikini to "padded," although that doesn't seem much better to me.
I stayed home with my son for six weeks after he was born and then returned to work full time. Now that he is 4 years old those 6 weeks seem like a mere blip, but I clearly remember the days dragging when I was home alone with my brand new baby. I had never been off of work longer than a day or two prior to this except to travel, so staying at home was a new experience and not entirely comfortable.I welcomed a return to work, but also worried if the financial benefits were worth the impact to my
I’m not sure where I would be as a parent without books. Reading with my son has been a true sanity saver through difficult phases in our bedtime routine and in the midst of potty training. I am forever grateful to the clever authors out there who have helped me parent better during these trying times. Not only do many of these authors assist me in teaching my son about various concepts, but they do so with a sense of humor that helps me retain mine. Mo Willems, who is best known as an animator
For the first two years of his life, I managed to keep my son cloistered in a wonderful television-free bubble. One rainy, frustrating day changed that and suddenly Jack was a diehard fan of Curious George.
