Many parents rightfully think that it’s important to protect their baby from the sun’s harmful rays on a warm day by placing a covering over their stroller.
Like most boys my age, I had a pro wrestling phase.
This “phase” lasted until I had kids and all my free time dissipated. But I’ll still fall down the occasional YouTube wormhole because, sometimes, you need to watch someone moonsault from the top of a cage.
Here are some animal organizations in the region that are in need of help:
Looking to introduce your children to helping others? Animal shelters, rescues and other organizations are in need, whether it’s to adopt from their facilities, lend a hand or drop off food or supply donations. It’s a great summer family project. Kids can pitch in by raising funds through a lemonade stand (see how on pg. 10) or doing chores around the house. Put on a neighborhood yard sale in which some of the sales go directly to support the cause. If you donate supplies, have the kids go shopping with you and let them pick out the needed items. Also, make sure they deliver in-person to their favorite animal cause.
When my daughter went to college last fall, we used every spare inch of the space in our vehicle to carry her stuff. It seemed like she packed her whole wardrobe, enough cleaning supplies to maintain the White House and more snacks than I thought she could eat in a year. Even then, we discovered she needed a few more things — items that no one told us we should pack.
