1. Be a positive role model for your children.

2. Educate your child about healthy living.

Do you drink soda or any other sugary drink

What if the cost of your favorite sugary treat went up by a few cents? Would this alter your buying habits?

I read last week that one strategy being considered to fund Obama's health care expansion is to tax soda and other sweetened drinks. As reported in the Wall Street Journal, a 3 cent hike/tax for any super sweet beverage could net $24 billion -- a literal drop in the estimated $1.2 trillion bucket needed for Obama's plan.

First Time Flying with a Baby

Last week, Erin and I flew for the first time with our 5-month old baby. Our annual trip back to Chicago for early xmas with the extended family was the occasion.

Both Erin and I were anxious about the 4+ hour flight as well as the 90 minute wait prior because, as first time parents, we just had no idea how Sevrin was going to handle the airport, security, the takeoff/landing, and the monotonous hours at 35,000 feet.
