Eco-Friendly Holidays (0:00:00) The holidays may be the most wonderful time of the year, but they are also the most wasteful. Think about it – with every inch of wrapping paper ripped off of presents, every cute homemade decoration that won’t last till next year, and all of the cardboard packaging surrounding your kids’ new favorite toys. And don’t get me started on how much of a workout it is trying to stuff all that waste into your tiny trash can… A shocking statistic has revealed that Americans?generate almost 1,000 pounds of trash per household during the holiday season.?But much of what is thrown away during the holidays can be recycled or re-purposed.?Jeremy Walters, sustainability ambassador at?Republic Services,?is on the show to give us recycling tips. Toddler Communication (0:14:43) Can you imagine what life would be like if you weren’t able to express yourself to the people around you? If your thoughts and needs had to stay inside you because you didn’t know enough words to express them?

Understanding Fertility Challenges (0:50:36) Infertility affects approximately 12% of women and 11% of men aged 15 to 44 in the United States, and out of the women that are affected by infertility, more than half of the issues are unexplained. With so much unanswered, those struggling to get pregnant can easily feel overwhelmed and confused.
