  • We went through this with P and her "best" friend K, who also happens to be the daughter of my best friend (and also her daycare provider).   P would come home with bite marks and stories of how K hit her or took her toys, etc.  I did have a talk wi…
  • DD has a cloth doll she loves and can't sleep without. However "Sonya" stays exclusively in her room except when we are going out of town. We started this in part because I had a blanket I was very attached to, and the times that I lost it were mi…
  • If it makes you feel any better, P tells me that she doesn't like me at least daily! She is on a very anti-mommy streak and always wants Daddy. I am trying my best not to let it bother me (figure it is practice for when she is a teenager and tells…
  • I think you are thinking of Tiny Soles. If you know the brand and style you are looking for, I usually have good luck just using google. You may have to scroll a bit but you can almost always find someone who has what you want. I'm unfortunately …
  • Penny is obsessed with Fancy Nancy books right now. I think we've read almost all that the library has by now. She also likes Dr. Seuss books, Curious George books, and much to my dismay adores picking out books in other languages for us to read. …
  • Escpecially since you don't need the caraway when you get there, I'd use the CARES harness. I have the same complaint about wishing there was a strap between the legs (she kept slouching and sliding out the bottom) and love the idea of adding somet…
  • Penny is almost three and is still rear facing. She does have to cross her legs but she doesn't seem to mind and has never complained about it. She is getting close to the limit and will have to be turned around soon, but I'm glad we've kept her r…
  • Penny is still in her crib, and will be until she complains or tries to climb out. She loves her crib so it might be a while! Next we'll convert her crib to a toddler bed, and once she outgrows that it will be a twin. I guess because I always sle…
  • Sorry, I didn't realize that was a spoiler. I should have thought about it more, my apologies. I edited my post to delete it, could you delete the quotes too?
  • Edited because it was a spoiler.
  • Consider a less expensive pump. I used the Ameda Purely Yours quite successfully for 15 months of pumping, and it costs less than $150. As a bonus it is also very lightweight and easy to take with you places. But whatever you do you should defini…
  • I'm so sorry about your LO, I hope he is doing better soon.  What a night!  We were planning on spending the night at home, watching movies and drinking, but got a call around 10 from my friends husband saying that she was in a lot of pain and th…
  • How old are you? 29 Occupation? CPA Any kids or furbabies? One 2.5 year old daughter Penelope and an 11 year old cat, Popoki How long have you been trying? We are on our third cycle now Last but not least one interesting fact about…
  • I had the mirena in for about two years. I loved it- my only side effect was not getting my period while it was in, which for me was a huge perk. I will most likely get another one in the future.
  • I'm in! I love to read all kinds of books (sci fi and fantasy included!). I'd read anything that has been suggested so far. I love the Ender books, I read them years ago. I bought the first Hunger Game book and am excited to start reading it. …
  • Oh and I wanted to add that I've read a bunch of negative things about getting pregnant after Mirena too, but I'm not convinced that all of the problems people report were truly caused by the Mirena and not other circumstances. So try not to worry …
  • I had mine out in October and am currently on my third cycle TTC. I don't blame the mirena for that though, considering how long it can normally take to get pregnant. I'm not worried at all yet, it is still really soon. Good luck when you start…
  • I felt really weird when I left seeing it.  I was glad that I saw a matinee and it was daylight after.  The blurring of the line between reality and hallucinations was what got me the most, which was perfect given the nature of the story.  Three day…
  • You ladies are great- thank you so much for the advice. Its funny, because I get a variety of answers when I've talked to my family, so I was expecting a variety here too. I think it is telling that everyone thinks I should take the new job. Than…
  • How many siblings do you have? 2 younger brothers Favorite mushy movie? Little Women Do you collect anything? Nope Favorite thing to make for dinner? Pancakes. I love breakfast for dinner! Favorite thing to bake? Banana muffins …
  • Sorry, duplicate post!
  • I think 2 year olds are just amazing sponges! It is amazing to me seeing my daughter and her two friends who are just about her age. They all seem to focus and develop different skills at different times. Penny has known all of her letters (l…
  • We fo one present from Santa (plus a stocking). I'm trying really hard to only get her one thing from us too, because she will get lots from family and she already got a lot of Hanukkah presents.
  • We mostly do showers, but if we do baths we still use the infant/toddler tub. To answer above poster, we do it because she is perfectly happy in it and it uses about 1/5 as much water as a regular bath does. When she isn't happy anymore we will us…
  • There might also be local noise ordinances they have to follow wintry looking for that too.
  • Could they be clogged ducts? Try taking a hot shower and massaging them and see if that helps. I think I actually had a similar experience when Penny weaned (same age and gradually too) and it did go away on its own. I used hot compresses because…
  • Yay! Congratulations!!
  • Hi! I'm mostly a lurker on this board too. I also have Crohn's disease. What medication were you on? Have you been doing ok since coming off it? I'm lucky because I am pretty much in remission now and haven't had any major flare ups in several …
  • I'm a CPA in an accounting firm (although I am waiting on a job offer right now so hopefully that might be changing!)
  • Awesome, thank you ladies! I tried taking P to barnes and noble last night because they have displays where you can try them out, and I wanted to see how she did with it. Of course the b&n we went to had a non working display lol. As a side n…
  • That brings back some memories Your girls are so adorable!  K looks so grown up!
  • Hmm...good question.  I think an extra $50 would probably be fine.  I hate figuring out about holiday tipping, though.
  • Someone gave Penny this digital camera for Hanukkah.  I haven't tried uploading the pictures yet to see how they turn out, but the wide grips and easy buttons are great.  She gets a kick out of taking pictures with it.  I know Penny would have tr…
  • Fun post!  Everyone had such beautiful bouquets!  Plus a good excuse to go look at wedding photos again   Here's mine:  
  • My favorite name is Lillian (nn Lily) but it is too popular for us to actually use. It took a long time for us to name our daughter (over 24 hours after she was born!) but I really love her name - Penelope Isabel (nn Penny). Other favorite gir…
  • If you don't have the base for the infant carseat the belt goes across the top. Maybe that was what they were doing?
  • We have this one.
  • I went about 6 months without coming on at all, but recently I've started coming back on.  I've been on the boards since waaay back off and on, and I'd imagine as long as there are boards that have some relevance I'll keep coming back. The older …
  • I believe that highly processed peanut oil generally is ok for most people with peanut allergies.  So if your child has been safe before, if it were me I'd probably eat there again.  Just be aware. 
  • Penny is 2.5 years old and still happily rear facing.  I'm not quite sure how big she is, but I know she isn't at the 40"/35 lb limit yet.  She's perfectly happy so I'm not inclined to switch her.  if she screamed in the car or anything like that, t…
