Turkey vs. traditional meatballs

Any time I am invited to a party or potluck event that requires a dish, I almost always go with my "famous" meatballs and sauce. This no-fail dish always gets rave reviews from friends and family. Just last weekend I made up a Crockpot full to bring to a work function and they were a hit. I especially look forward to the part where I get to tell people that they are made with turkey - not beef. I often get puzzled looks and many "no way!" comments because it's hard to believe. But - "yes, way" - it's turkey.

Take nonchalant attitude toward toddler's behavior

Q: It seems our 1-year-old son is showing willful disobedience. We tell him "no" and try to redirect, but he does the same things over and over again. The things in question include turning over and not being cooperative when I'm trying to change him, slapping us in the face, and standing up during bath time. I'm trying to be creative with ways to entertain him and make things fun but am becoming weary. Any advice on how I can correct him?
