    Handing Out Recipe & Consultant Info: Was There a Request to Stop?

    A popular thing that some consultants had been doing was putting a small amount of a rub in a small resealable food-safe baggie (very small, like 1" x 2") and handing them out at vendor events with a recipe and consultant info on them. Then I could've sworn that HO asked us to stop doing it...

    My DS is 4.5, and still has to wear a pull-up to bed. Occasionally he has a dry night, but only occasionally. We limit his drinking after dinner, and he goes potty just before he goes to bed. Once in a while he will half-way wake up in the middle of the night, crying and thrashing around...
