The endless debate rages on: should you buy cloth or disposable diapers? Of course some will choose base on personal preference. Others may wish to focus on cost effectiveness and 'greener' option. The answer may surprise you.

In our family, we focus more on the fun of being together than on the gifts given or received. Some of the most memorable items exchanged are often inexpensive, handmade or ones that make us laugh. We'll admit that opening gifts is seldom boring, but it's quite a bit of fun to make the exchange itself amusing. We remember those chuckles for years.
Pumpkin carving, painting, or decorating is one of those activities that can bring family members of all ages and descriptions together for a good time. It fun and a bit messy, which many kids enjoy. Parents can teach safety for use of sharp tools, while providing an opportunity for creativity to blossom. This activity, along with the family conversations that occur when you are playing together can make memories that last a lifetime.
As parents, we do whatever we can to keep our children safe. We baby-proof the home, investigate caregivers, research everything from cribs to car seats for the highest safety ratings and more. Did you know, however, that one of the very products designed to keep watch on your little one(s) may instead be making your family vulnerable to predators?
