Like many parents, I overthink a lot of decisions, and worry about things that probably don’t matter a whole lot in the final analysis. Can I buy the cheap No-Ad sunscreen, or must I spent $37 an ounce for the oxybenzone-free stuff? Should I say yes to that third tv show of the day? What about the horrid Country Time “lemonade” they insist on serving at kiddush – allow a cup? More?
