Living with Children with John Rosemond: Pull-ups are permissible in special cases

Q: My 23-month-old son does well with potty training when we're at home. We use a "potty bell" and he goes every 90 minutes or so. When we're away from home, however, he seems clueless. He pees in his car seat about 5 minutes into a trip and simply will not use a potty anywhere but at our home or at my mother's (she watches him one day a week at her place). Would pull-ups be a bad thing to use when we leave the house?

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: Living the dream through cupcakes and coffee

It's mid-morning on a sunny Saturday, after a satisfying brunch and visit to my local farmers' market. Dressed completely casually with nowhere to be, I stroll along East Main Street in downtown Statesboro to find an inviting sidewalk chalkboard and the doors open wide at CAKE Bakery and Cool Beanz Espresso Bar. Upon entering, I discover much more than cupcakes and caffeine. Here two kindred spirits - one culinary artist and one head coffee geek - have joined forces to make their dreams a reality.
