    ugh. flashcards. Kids learn better while playing.  Drilling doesn't work well.  The cruel irony is the drilling that people do is frequently implemented as a stopgap measure to attempt to target areas more »

    memes, the resistance to being away from you makes me think it's partially an attachment thing.  My youngest was very attached and just wanted to be physically near me for the first year or so of her more »

    WPP, that dermatologist is an idiot.  The worst part is, he probably charged your insurance $$$$$ for your 2-minute visit (which, of course, took a LOT MORE than 2 minutes for you to get to, wait for, more »

    CLC, I'm so sorry for your loss.     As for the getting the body back, with my first I lost the weight (60 lbs!) within the schedule I'd given myself.  I lost about 30 just giving brith and within the more »

    That's so sweet, ALS, about your DDs.  We get an extra half hour of lying in bed time on the weekends now because when the 18 month old wakes up and starts talking to herself, big sister (4.5) goes in more »

    clotriminazole is the main ingredient in athlete's foot cream, so it sounds like that makes sense.  I wonder what the maalox is for?

    clotraminazole is for fungus/yeast (my eczema-prone daughter has had every type of rash and every type of cream known to man so far sigh), so if possible, airing out once in a while will probably help more »

    I had success at the Children's Place for mittens last year and the year before that.  So they're consistent! If your DD has the same ones we have, those mittens also have a layer of plastic or vinyl more »

    I teach high school.  In the community I teach, Rainbow Loom appears to have crossed the boundries of class, age, gender, race, ethnicity, music preference, intellectual ability, and athletic prowess more »

    Also, I know they have easels and BIG rolls of paper that fit them at IKEA but I'm not sure about the quality. I believe the price is gloriously IKEAish, like $20 or something like that.

    I'm so tired too.  We think we're going to get (another) bicycle for DD this year as the big gift.  She got one for her 3rd birthday which she promptly outgrew.  I thought it would extend but it didn' more »

    I know they help you try on things at Isis.  I'm not sure you're going to be able to find anything more structured than a wrap if you're petite. the height seems to make a bigger difference than anyth more »

    Nystatin, maybe?  We had a similar situation.  I can't remember the exact name.  It was antifungal.  They had us alternate with every other diaper change the nystatin and something else. It cleared up more »

    the uterine shrinking contractions get stronger with each pregnancy/birth.  Usually the milk comes in earlier and harder with each one too.   My mum said with her 4th, it was like she was in labor for more »

    I'm getting all paranoid about parent-teacher conferences this week.  Those 120 teenagers I teach sometimes need to be reminded to keep their feet on the floor once in a while.  I'm aggressive-aggress more »

    It helps that when you do have a second, that second child is his/her own unique self, with a personality and capacity to amaze you and awe you, just like the first was.  Unfortunately, this means, fr more »

    My kids loved handing out candy too.  We have a screened-in porch and we usually prop open the screen door (no landing on the top of the steps, don't want people to fall) and just hand out candy from more »

    Poppy, maybe the sleep disruption is an indication he's about to walk!  My girls always seem to have weird sleep patterns right before a new physical developmental milestone.  Prior to walking, the sl more »

    well you certainly shouldn't swaddle the kid when he's in his car seat--it defeats the purpose of strapping them in!

    My daughter almost never gets fevers despite her many, many ear infections.  It could be teeth too, of course. Sigh.  So tough to tell.

    I have no idea how I"m going to eventually get DD2 to stop soothing herself with her two fingers. At least with a binky you have the option to get rid of it.  My eldest didn't do anything to soothe. I more »

    For boots I've had a lot of luck at Kohl's, though it takes some luck.  We live near the ocean and DD loves to go wading, even in the winter, so I have to make sure she's got well-insulated boots that more »
