June brings us Father's Day. And I know from personal experience that Dad's feel slighted when you compare the importance of Father's Day to Mother's Day. So I've given directions for a very cute Father's Day gift for the kids to make for Dad.

Plus, an easy-to-make summer pasta salad that is kid-friendly!

Recipe: Ham & Pasta Salad

Kim from Valley Springs, California asked:
"At what point do you all worry about your daycare not being full?"

One of several responses was:
"I try not to worry because when I do I end up taking a family I regret because I'm thinking money not good fit..."

Q&A: "How Do You Get Kids To Eat?"

This is an e-mail I received from Kristena:

The article that you wrote about your own son being the naughtiest child in your day care really touched my heart. I have just recently opened a child care in our home and am experiencing this exact scenerio.

We too have a fairly small house, and the daycare children have to use his room during nap time. It definitely is an ongoing battle, but it gives me immeasurable comfort to know I'm not the only one who has gone through it.

If you'd like to read the article Kristena is referring to, it's right here!
