Eating like a champ!) before answering listener questions about how to ask a relative about why they won't let people hold their baby, to cut or not to cut (your daughter's hair), how to handle the stress of not getting pregnant right away, how to navigate the legalities of assigning guardianship of your child to your sibling should the unthinkable happen, and what to do about difference in parenting styles (ie, spanking versus not),  a heartbreaking question about how and when to tell new people in your life about having lost a child, and lastly, what's a great gender neutral baby gift to give to some hip parents to be? Wishing you all a festive holiday! Enjoy!
