In the summer of 2011, on our family’s annual camping trip, my then five year old daughter went vegetarian for the next year. It stemmed from the meager success of our fishing expedition – one trout – being part of our dinner the last night of our trip. You see, when we caught that little trout she was positive we would be taking it home as our pet and her little five year old heart broke when we ate it.
Four family-sized boxes of Reduced Fat Wheat Thins, and the novel Bleak House by Charles Dickens: that’s what my husband brought to the hospital when I unexpectedly went into labor with our first baby three weeks early. At that point in the game, I’d found a suitcase to pack for the hospital, but hadn’t yet gotten around to packing it with diapers, booties and items that would have made sense—and in a nervous panic, my husband decided that day seemed like a better time than any to get cracking on a 700+ page novel he knew I’d never read. Um, pass.
Whether you’ve got a 3-month-old headed for daycare, a 3 year-old starting preschool, or you kept your child home until the law required that formal schooling begin or else, you’re about to suddenly be separated from your sweet sidekick. And it’s probably going to hurt, a little bit.
Or should I say, it’s probably going to hurt you a little bit. The kids? They adapt just fine. Meanwhile, I went through quite a few tissues every time one of my baby birds left the nest.

When you have kids and it’s summertime, you are outdoors. Period. From packing up and picnicking at the beach to playing at the community pool, I am outside ALL. THE. TIME. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s awesome. My mind is free, my body is healthy, and my soul is fulfilled. But I’m also a sweaty, stinky, sandy mess. Sorry, it’s the truth. Since I’m not the type to forego hanging with my kids and enjoying the summertime sun, I have an armory of natural products to keep any odiferous offense at bay.
