Company Offers to Name Your Baby for One Thousand Dollars
Struggling with what to name your baby? Groupon comes to the rescue! For a mere $1,000, they'll name your baby. The name won't be randomly selected nor will there be some drawn out selection process. Your baby's name will be "Clembough." Confused? Us, too.
Every single adult in that
Every single adult in that car should be charged with a crime. Child endangerment for sure! Those poor children should be removed from the custody of these people and placed in a safe environment. It appears from the story that the child was ALLOWED to play with the LOADED gun, and the children were not restrained in any kind of seat. Seriously!?

"Hair-Raising" Trend in Little Girls Frequenting Salons and Spas
Are the kids of reality stars like "The Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Gina Guidice's daughter celebrating her ninth birthday with a salon party influencing women? While this might put your hair on end, there's a rise in the amount of little girls frequenting salons and spas in the United States.

Toddler Found Holding Loaded Handgun During Routine Traffic Stop
It takes a lot to shock police these days. It's rare, if not unheard of to be faced with what Chicago police found on one particular routine traffic stop.

I'd love to know if they drug
I'd love to know if they drug and alcohol tested those in the car! I cannot imagine how ANY of those within the vehicle would have not been in fear for *their* own lives with a toddler holding a loaded gun unless they weren't sober or high. There are so very many variables in play here that, thankfully, did NOT happen. I also thought that they had to charge any other adult in the car with child endangerment for not insuring the kids were restrained. Since this article does not describe the driver as the child's father, maybe the child's mother and grandmother could have made the claim that they didn't know there was a weapon in the car... but it still does not address the issue of the kids not being in car seats. Just unbelievable. I'm glad no one was hurt.
What a great story! If only
What a great story! If only more of these professional athletes would exercise a semblance of this young boy's character! To answer the question, we try to lead by example - sharing meals with those that are hungry, having our children help with going through clothes, toys, books, etc. to donate, bringing them with us when we volunteer, and more. Also, to foster feelings of generosity within the family, we try to encourage them to look for ways to help one another. Granted, older siblings may not appreciate the little ones efforts to "decorate" their bed with Dora and Mickey Mouse stickers! LOL

Boy Sends Piggy Bank to Football Player to Get Him to Stay
Who says generosity is dead? I doubt running back Brandon Jacobs would say so. He just received one young fan’s entire piggy bank savings in an effort to keep him in New York!

U.S. preterm births hit new low - still work to do!
The March of Dimes just released the 2012 Premature Birth Report Card. The U.S. has hit a new 10 year low for preterm births -- a significant improvement now registering at 11.7%! Still, overall, the U.S. scores a "C" as we continue to have a high rate of preterm births comparatively. This is a clear indication of work to be done! Learn more of the resources available here at Pregnancy.org to help you and your baby with a healthy start!

Making time to grieve.
Pregnancy and infant loss is never easy. The passing often takes with it shattered hearts and dreams of a future far different than the reality. Having to go through this process while still being called on to serve others -- whether that role is bearing work responsibilities, as "mom" for other children, coping with deteriorating health of parents or in-laws, or simply juggling your relationship with your partner -- 'overwhelming' doesn't even come close.
