  • I agree that these boys need to be shadowed and that there needs to be more supervision on the playground. Any good center/school, knows that most bullying/harassment issues take place during the "un-supervised" times (i.e. hallway passing, recess,…
  • With all 3 of my kids, I did the cereal in between bottles. I think trying to sit him at the table at 10pm and do cereal is too late! Looking at your schedule, I would do some cereal about an hour after his first bottle (so around 7am) and then I …
  • To me, it sounds like you have answered your question.You said that you, your DH and the teacher think she shouldn't start.....and you said "not quite there yet." Hold her back. Everyone does around here for the most part. As a middle school tea…
  • With my 2 year old.....yes, it sounds crazy! You could not pay me enough to do that. Sorry. Maybe in our own car, but on a train: no way! Actually, with my 2 year old......I would not even attempt a 12 hour car ride in our own car! Ha!  
  • Okay. So....I could not figure out who would play Christian because in my mind I picture an extremely dreamy, preppy guy and cannot place who would fit that role. I love the Twilight Saga but do NOT want Robert Pattison or Kristen Stewart near this…
  • Yes. N (DS2) just had his tonsils and adenoids out in November (he had just turned 2). I am not going to sugar coat it: it was not fun at all. I would not recommend it unless it is absolutely necessary. The surgery was the easiest part. Recovery w…
  • You've never missed bedtime???? I have missed bedtime more times than I can even keep track of (with all 3 of my kids!)! They will be fine! Go and don't worry about it! 
  • firsttogo: That transition from 1-2 was WAY harder than 0-1, or 2-3. You now have to divide your time, and find your groove. Do what you need to get by. This is survival right now. Hang in there,  I totally agree with this Probably not what you…
  • The Playskool Rescue Bot Transformers are HUGE with my boys and their friends right now! DS1 is 4.5......... -Legos -Anything Super Hero (Superman, Batman, etc) -Capes/Super Hero dress-up stuff -If he is into sports, you could do a tee-ball set …
  • So many great suggestions. Also, as a teacher, I have gotten pleas from parents to talk to their girls about their periods. I'm not the youngest teacher anymore in the building, but I think I relate well to a lot of the girls because I'm realistic…
  • All 3 of my kids were fed store-bought baby food.....and they have all survived And.....are all very healthy kids!! I like the Earth's Best brand and also Plum Baby (comes in those handy pouches).  I would microwave the leftovers (when they were …
  • I agree.....boy names are hard. ALL of my friends have boys and DH's family is all boys (DD was the first girl since 1861 in his immediate lineage....not kidding!). That being said, here are is a long list of boy names that I think are "classic"  J…
  • Honestly, it is the BEST baby product on the market. DS2 slept in it until he was almost 8 months old and DD was in it until she was 6 months old. I firmly believe all newborns need to be elevated after feedings and for sleeping. I swear it saved …
  • Are you specifically going for bottle feeding? How many ounces is she taking now? A is only taking in about 16-18 oz. a day. Pedi isn't concerned at all. I know they are both doing well with solids, so can't you just focus on that right now? I al…
  • On a blanket. No need to spend money on anything else, in my opinion She is actually starting to crawl now, but I still bring out the blanket and if she crawls on the grass, oh well! She isn't fast enough yet to leave the yard. We also used to br…
  • No  advice. Just wanted to say I feel the same way DS1 is great. He listens and for the most part is very helpful. DS2 (similar age to your boys....) is completely in the middle of the terrible 2's. He isn't talking as much as we would like, gets…
  • I'm so sorry to hear this I hope the doctor's are wrong about the genetic disorder. Praying for you guys!  
  • Guilty here too! When DS2 was about 7-8 months old, he was sleeping in our bed. DH was out of town and we lived with my mom at the time. He slept in our room because we didn't have enough bedrooms there for him. He normally slept in the PNP, but at…
  • I think it is hard. There I said it I wouldn't change it for the world, but I don't sugar coat things. I think the change from 1-2 kids was harder than 2-3, but logistically, 3 for us has been VERY hard. I would not change what we have and we are s…
  • DS2 got tubes when he was 8 months old and it was the best decision we ever made. He is now almost 2.5 years old and hasn't had an ear infection since his tubes went in! I was ready for tubes at 6 months (ha!), but we tried all alternatives (nose s…
  • I just posted about this! (didn't see this post....) I just read all THREE books in 5 days. My girlfriends and I are obsessed. I have never read anything like these books and I am so depressed I am done with the books. I am not embarrassed to admit…
  • DS1 was done by 13 months. DS2 was done by 12 months. DD would be done now if we let her. I am weaning her off the second the pedi gives me the go ahead. No flames, but I hope she will let me do it by 11 months. We have awful feeding issues with h…
  • DS1 is 4 years 5 months and yes, he can write his full name (first and last). He has been writing his first name since the beginning of the school year, but it was large and messy at first. His teacher began writing smaller dashes/lines recently and…
  • Our current favorites are: Zingo CandyLand Chutes & Ladders Connect 4  Elefun  
  • DS2 had both his tonsils and adenoids out in November. He had just turned 2. Our ENT was very honest that it was going to be a rough recovery. We had to stay the night in the hospital and that was one of the worst parts We weren't even in a room..…
  • My DH offered to get a vasectomy.....he was ready after DS2 Once I became PG with DD and went through those crazy 20 weeks of bedrest....I was d.o.n.e. We knew we were done regardless after this last PG, but after all that I went through, I never,…
  • Awww Did you say it is tomorrow night? If so, I would bet that is why people aren't coming. I think people just don't love night/dinner parties for kids. Can you reschedule for a Saturday or Sunday morning/afternoon? That is when everyone does kid…
  • Ugh. So hard! It sounds like you are doing all of the right things.  Maybe he just has some anxiety in school/large group settings? I know that sounds weird since he is only 3, but friends of ours have seen a psychiatrist with their 5 year old who …
  • Congratulations and happy birthday Lucas  
  • This sounds completely normal.....and with 3, I live it every.single.night. My DH doesn't get home until 7-7:30 every night. When I walk in the door at 4:30p, the baby is ready for her bottle and the boys are ready for dinner. It is complete chaos.…
  • Sounds very much like the silent reflux that DS2 has.....and yes, it is extremely scary. I would go out right now and buy the Rock N Play! It was a lifesaver for us. DS2 was never a "spitter" either and that is the difference. A silent refluxer ha…
  • I think it depends on the child.  Some are ready for 5 days whenever and some need to wait until they are 4/5. If he enjoys school and doesn't appear to be too worn out after the 2 days he is going now, then he can probably do the 5 days. Around …
  • I'm so sorry for your loss   (((HUGS)))) 
  • SO happy for you guys Best of luck! Wishing you a healthy, stress-free PG  
  • First, they may not let him start since the cut-off is Sept. 1st and his b-day is Sept. 2nd. Some districts are very strict, others will test those within days of the cut-off and then decide. This is by far the hardest and most anxiety-ridden decis…
  • Get the Rock N Play! Seriously the best product on the market! You can stick your foot out of the bed and rock it We got a Nap Nanny for DS2 because he had horrible reflux......I was not impressed at all. He slid to the side all the time and slid…
  • You can take it apart......but it is next to impossible to get it back together My mom took one of ours apart when DS1 peed in his. There is tons of styrafoam underneath????? It was so disgusting. I am dreading the day when one pukes in it. And, …
  • Very tragic On a side note.....we have no school nurse (they got rid of that position years ago...) and we have NO Epi-Pens in the school unless they are another child's. Also, our office is SO far away from the playground that I don't even think …
  • No, it isn't too late! I would go asap. The flu season lasts well into early April. DD has her 6 month check-up tomorrow and she will be getting hers then. I'm pretty sure the only reason they won't give a shot is if they are running a fever.

  • I still can't get them on yet either After DS1, we bit the bullet and got them resized when he was around 8 months. After DS2, they were fine. They went back on when he was about 4 months. Now.....DD is 6 months and they barely go on. I so don't…
