My 4-year-old is friendly and outgoing. He talks to everyone and wants to see everything when we are out in public. I’ve nearly lost him twice while shopping. What do I do?
Q: We just found out that we have to move to a new state in one month because of a job change. How can we make this big change easier for our 3- and 5-year-olds?

Our youngest daughter Rachel crept into our bedroom at 2 AM. “You need to get up,” she said in a hushed, urgent voice. “Cassandra’s in labor.”
I put on some clothes and went downstairs. Cassandra was sitting in the wooden rocking chair in which, 24 years earlier, I had rocked her to sleep. Her eyes were closed, and her breathing was deep and regular. She was concentrating. She opened her eyes slowly as the contraction subsided. “How long has this been going on?” I asked. Rachel handed me a piece of notebook paper. On it she and Hugh had listed the exact time of every contraction. Now, you have to remember that I’m a maternity nurse. Labor doesn’t make me as nervous as it does most people. I smiled, noted that they had been regular for less than an hour, and went back to bed. I would be needing whatever sleep I could get.
