Did you think of pregnancy?
Of course you did. Baby bumps and bumpies are all the rage now, and they should be! Pregnancy is awesome! But there is one aspect of pregnancy that isn't necessarily a crowd favorite.

Once your child has entered the world and you have decided that you will keep this little person, you are 100% responsible for diapering, wiping, feeding, burping, kissing, snuggling, clothing, and caring for him or her (or, sometimes, him and her!). And in order for your to be able to stock up on diapers, food, and clothing, you've got to get out there and get yourself a job.

Breaking down why jobs are obtained, it could be said that the purpose of getting a job is ...
I've been with EverydayFamily for a little over a year now, and since then, I have learned tons and tons and tons of stuff about pregnancy, a lot of which has made me a little nauseated. #guyproblems.
There are so many things that have to go right for pregnancy to occur—things with the male have to go right, things with the female have to go right, the nine-month journey needs certain things to happen. Moms are so careful that they eat the right things, avoid the wrong things, ...
From that first nail-biting ride home from the hospital, it's easy to see why keeping your little one safe in the car should be a priority. Auto accidents are a leading cause of death in children and as a parent it's easy to say you'll do anything in your power to protect them. But there are so many details to consider that it can seem overwhelming.
This week marks Child Passenger Safety Week, so we're looking at some of the mistakes parents make regarding car seat usage, so we can ...
We've all heard of the middle-child syndrome, right? You know, the one where the kid who was unfortunate enough to be born right in the middle of the sibling lineup has the most difficult life out of anyone in the family?
Well, "Second-Baby Syndrome" is somewhat similar to that, and it's disconcerting enough for one mom that she decided to put her ideas down and express her worry about how the babies that are second in line get the short end of the stick (and sometimes not even a ...
You see that picture right above? When was the last time you had one of those?
Since the beginning of modern American society, it seems like there was a very common sentiment that having a nice sit-down dinner was extremely beneficial in raising emotionally and socially healthy children. There's even a whole foundation that advocates for family dinners.
But guess what? It's super hard to round up the entire ...
Why is it that kids like the summer break? I would venture to say that it is because homework is non-existent during those blissful months.
Why is it that parents like the summer break? I would venture to say that, as the actual doers of the homework, parents get a three-month-or-so break from dragging their kids to the kitchen table to get their science project that's due the next day started. (And you thought you were done with homework once you graduated. HA!)
So, yes, the ...
Deep within our feminine souls, there is a powerful capacity for trickery. We are masters of deception! We can fake headaches, orgasms, hair color, personality, and pregnancies. And more often than not, this deceptiveness goes unrealized by those it's directly affecting ... with one exception: Pregnancy!
Unless you're scheming to kidnap a newborn baby on your phony due date - Highly disallowed! - you'll eventually be caught out.

Newborn babies do amazing things, every day; and parents have enjoyed their bragging rights and have shared their little ones’ triumphs for many years. However, it seems that new mom Onyi Chiedozie’s recent declaration has not only taken the lead for being extraordinary, it has halted others, forcing them into wondering if their babies are as amazing as they think.
