When I told my daughter, Violet, that I would be combining her birthday party with her little sister's last summer, I expected some pouting. Instead, she surprised me by announcing that she wanted a Doctor Seuss birthday party featuring...
I recently had the pleasure of flying across the country with my 4.5-year-old son, M.J., and my 14-month-old daughter, C. I wasn't at all worried about the big kid. The 4-year-old was happy as a clam to have extra iPad...
