This sweet treat is sure to be a family favorite! I must confess, I got a little bit obsessed with the pre-made crescent roll dough! There are so many possibilities! This time I went for a tasty and sweet creation. My favorite desserts almost always have chocolate and if it's Nutella even better! So I created these with Nutella. I added the blueberries as an extra element to contrast with the Nutella flavor and it was indeed a contrasting and surprising flavor but still very tasty. I think they go together perfect. My kids helped me out with this one. They enjoyed helping with the Nutella spread, placing the blueberries on each turnover, folding them and sealing them with the fork. Turns out there is a lot they could do in this one, so get your kids to help, you know they'll love it!
1 8oz tube of pre-made crescent roll dough

Recession schmecession. You'd never know there are people hurting financially in this country if you were to just look at the spending habits of the Tooth Fairy.
That's because despite a rise in interest rates andnot in most paychecks, the Tooth Fairy is rewarding kids for losing their teeth - a whopping 23 percent more than she did in 2012.
According to an annual survey from Visa Inc., the average tooth is now worth $3.70 under the pillow, which is up from $3 last year. They figure that based on the rate of return, kids can squirrel away $74 for their full set of baby teeth.
Visa Inc. surveyed 3,000 people by telephone in July and found that kids in the Northeast fare the best for their chompers, getting an average of $4.10 per tooth. Kids West and South receive $3.70 and $3.60 respectively. The piggy banks of Midwestern children are getting the short end of the Tooth Fairy's wand, raking in just $3.30 per tooth.Read More »from Money Where Your Mouth Is: Kids Are Getting 23% More from the Tooth Fairy This Year

Grandfather holding babyLast week my daughter started first grade. Our new morning routine challenged us that first day, but we managed to get in the car with a few extra minutes to spare, even after a round of first day photos. On the way there, we talked about what new friends she'd meet and how much she'd learn this year until I realized this was one of those days that called for some grandparent celebration. I called my mom in New York and put her on speaker phone, giving her a brief update before she took the cue and ran with it, using her most exuberant grandma voice to offer encouragement and celebrate my daughter's milestone.Read More »from Staying in Touch with Long-Distance Grandparents
Keeping grandparents an important part of our kids' childhood is challenging for us-we live in Florida and our families live in the Midwest. But both my husband and I have fond memories of spending time with our grandparents, and we work hard to keep the distance from affecting a good relationship between our kids and our parents. There's even more reason now to encourage these
Why I'm having a home birthUnlike my son Kaspar's birth three years ago, which took place in a hospital, my next baby boy will be born at home. I became kind of a birth nerd between pregnancies #1 and #2, and, when it came down to it, the decision to have a home birth was an easy one to make. Of course, there's no right way to have a baby, and each family, pregnancy and birth are wonderfully unique. Read on for six reasons our family's chosen home birth this time around.Read More »from 6 Reasons I'm Having a Home Birth
1. This will be my first home birth, but it's not my first rodeo.
Kaspar's birth marked the best day of my life, hands down, to date; after all, I met my son, and became a mom, in the moment my little guy and I locked eyes. Between an induction, an epidural, an episiotomy - which I was not consulted on - and several not-so-awesome days in a crowded maternity ward afterward, however, I also got a full dose of the high-intervention, not-so-mama-friendly style birthing system ours is becoming known for here in the States. Now, I hadn't taken a
Miscarriage is tough on Dad, too.The goal of every pregnancy is to bring home a healthy baby, but unfortunately not every pregnancy ends that way. Last year my wife and I experienced a miscarriage, something that occurs in approximately 10 to 20 percent of all known pregnancies. While a miscarriage is something I wouldn't wish on any couple, I wanted to share my experiences with other men who might be going through the same thing.Read More »from Men and Miscarriage: What to Expect
My first point is obvious, but it needs to be made: you and your wife will be sad. You've both spent a number of months imagining a future with your baby, but after a miscarriage all of your hopes and dreams are dashed. This is very difficult, and you should understand that it's okay to grieve for the loss of the life that you and your wife were preparing for.

While grieving, though, it's important to be there for your wife. A huge reason for this is that, in addition to all the feelings men and women both experience, women are

There are two ways to look at this stat: 90% of kids are still being kids, 10% of parents are freaking out and connecting kids way too early.
My boys, ages 6 and 3, have "their own" phone. It's my old iPhone 3 loaded with games and disconnected from any network. On long trips they'll get to thumb through some apps, or watch one of their favorite shows in the back seat. It's my compromise on not getting screens put in our vehicle.
Next week my son will enter Grade 1, and there are many things I'm not looking forward to. Most of my fears revolve around the parenting practices of others. You can set all the rules and boundaries that you want for your kids, but their peers have a real effect on the agenda - and the older they get, the more influential friends become. Zacharie has started to compare his stock in life with friends, wishing we lived in the country because "then we'd be rich." Two years ago he didn't notice the difference.Read More »from Call Me, Baby: Why Do so Many 5-Year-Olds Have Their Own Cell Phones?
