    There was a thread about this last year. I'll see if I can find it. One of the ideas thrown out there was to offer to buy pizza lunch for the teachers at a center.  I liked that idea. We gave our home more »

    I would advise to put off the gift giving till after the party.  My husband's elderly aunts had to leave our party early and kind of made a scene about "seeing" DS open their presents.  It was a snowb more »

    I love Halloween too!  DS is 15 mos and I can't wait till next year when he can have some input on what to dress up as.  On the other hand I LOVE picking out his costumes on my own.  Last year he was more »

    Hi Leila - I saw a deal on the Sony Babycall monitor pop up on BabyCheapskate's FB page this morning.  Not sure if it's a great price since I haven't been tracking it but thought I would point it out. more »

    Hi Leila - I know you said you weren't considering video but here's my two cents.  I thought the same thing when I was pregnant with DS so we went with a digital sound moniter.  Honestly we never real more »

    I loathe the video games as well.  I started calling all the war games "Rainbow Duty" as a hybrid name so I wouldn't have to remember them all. LOL! True story, DH left his xbox controller on the coff more »

    Bed Bath will still take expired coupons, Buy Buy Baby will not.  They will however take competitor's coupons (BRU, specific Target coups).  Make sure you call first to confirm.  Stores change their c more »

    My strong willed DS has insisted on feeding himself since he was 5.5 months which was likely encouraged by day care since she has 2 other children to take care of.  Every morning we lay him on the bop more »
