Getting dressed is different for my kids as they grow up than it was for me. Sure, they pull their shirts over their heads just like I did. But I'm talking about the kinds of clothes and the quantities of them. I went to a private school and wore a uniform five days a week. My mom's approach to clothing the rest of the time was sensible - a couple dressy outfits for church and special occasions, a casual outfit or two, and a few sets of play clothes. I didn't get a lot, so acquisitions generated a lot of excitement.

You know your children are growing up when they'd rather have gift cards to clothing stores than clothes that you pick out for them. It seems to happen overnight.

"Why don't you wear this?" you innocently ask. The preteen gazes at the garment, the floor, the ceiling and, eventually, you. "Well, Mom, it's just not me. " Oh. Since when did that "me" that you've known since birth develop such a unique style?

Political correctness has gone mad   To the editor:   I am tired of the continuing complaint by left/liberal politicians/ media and black leaders who continue to repeat the racism mantra when referring to the Zimmerman/Martin trial and the stop/frisk practice in New York. Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch member who knew that there had been a recent home invasion by two young, black men wearing hoodies. Who should he have been watching for as he patrolled his neighborhood?

The men and women who arrive at a local car dealership are ready to shop. But they're not interested in a set of wheels that will make them look good on the open highway. They're more interested in looking good on the road to success. Maybe it's an emotional and psychological lift. Maybe it provides a feeling of confidence and empowerment. Whatever the reason, putting your best foot forward, making a good first impression, can often be the difference between landing a job and being unemployed.

Cloth diapers are having a back-to-the-future moment. Sure, 95 percent of American families who use diapers purchase the throw-away variety. But as a result, says the Environmental Protection Agency, 3.5 million tons of used diapers are put in landfills each year and will take as many as 500 years to decompose. Those are the kind of statistics that have many green-minded parents rethinking their choices. And they're choosing cloth diapers. "People definitely would consider cloth if they knew just how damaging to the environment disposable diapers are," said Jennifer Guenther.
