Back-to-school season is here - and for some families, there's no better time than right now to start establishing positive nutrition behaviors with our children. Today, on Fox 4's Morning Show, I'm offering solutions to four areas of concern for...
The lazy days of summer are almost over. My family has been enjoying late-night lightning bug-catching and going for a new record of how many bottles of sunscreen a family with an 11, 9 and 5-year-old can use in...
Between living 1300 miles away from all of our family and friends and two out-of-state adoptions, our family has done what seems to be more than our fair share of travel. While the thought of a road trip with...

My husband and I have three kids. We love our growing family, but we dread the first six weeks with a newborn every time. We are so thankful for our sweet babes, but the days are still dark. During...
Thanks to the relatively mild summer we've had so far, we've had the opportunity to visit the Kansas City Zoo several times. My son, Charlie, is almost two and we've finally reached the age where he "gets it" --...
