    How prepared are you for an emergency situation? It can be scary to think about, but there's nothing more important than knowing what to do if something goes wrong with your child.

    Welcome to This Glorious Mess Little Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is - confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny and full of surprises. So many surprises.

From outsourcing to chore schedules to robot vacuums, there's something for everyone to help ease the never ending mental load.
