    Any posts made since the new format don't seem to have any text that I can see. Including my own post. 


    Your post seems to be the only new one that actually shows up.

    Well, it seems like a functional, if "dated" website has been replaced by one where half the links I tried were broken; on a link that did work, the text was huge, but so far down the page I almost di more »

    I am in total agreement on the learning through play, there is no reason to start with flashcards at such a young age. One of my favorite ways to teach math concepts to DD has been while we are cookin more »

    I think it was Arcain asking about dentist, and Summer quoted her..... We take DD to the same dentist we see. She started getting exams around 3, but the hygenist recommended we bring her a couple of more »

    CLC - I'm sorry for your loss. WPP - Even if you get back to pre-pregnancy weight, you might not be the same shape you were. I had to buy all new bras, after DD, because I went up in band size, even t more »

    I feel like I am behind with getting DS to eat solids. He is 7 months, but just eats 1/2 puree or a little cereal, and not even every day. He did eat 3/4 of a banana puree yesterday, I have been mostl more »

    I think the holidays are hard on everyone. My DH and I have a small chocolate business with a friend of ours, and pretty much every weekend since the week before Thanksgiving we have been doing craft more »

    I am a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse books too. I have gotten busy with everything else going on in my life, and with fewer middle of the night feedings, I have less time to read. But I love all the su more »

    clc - I have always purchased a seat for DD, (now 5, and we have to) and bought a seat for DS (6 months) for Thanksgiving. It is a big added cost, but I am more comfortable with the kids having their more »

    Medford - What we do when DD is tantruming and not in the car, is to get down so we are face to face and try to get her to do deep breaths with us. I start by blowing my big breath out into her ear so more »

    Medford- car tantrums are the worst! Last week I had to take the kids down to Rhode Island to pick something up (about 40 minute car ride each way). As I am locking up the house, DD says she wants Lit more »

    WPP - you will figure out what is best for you, and I hope you find it quickly. The stress of making a decision is sometimes the worst part. And the "breast is best" mantra we've all been told can con more »

    Medford, I tried making cauliflower as you suggested (with the addition of a bunch of minced garlic) roasting it in the oven until nice and brown, and it was wonderful! I had gotten it at the farmer's more »

    Just had to share, DS has his first tooth breaking through! He had been waking a bit more in the middle of the night for a week or so, then he slept through the night the last 3 nights (8 hours!) I th more »

    Hi KatMac, I'd also reccomend seeing the OB, sometimes an ectopic pregnancy can cause bleeding, and really weird ups and downs of hCG. That is something you don't want to take a wait and see approach more »

    Posted 10/09/2013 03:24:56 EDT

    We also have the Loving Family dollhouse - It is big and plastic, but DD loves it. And she takes the tea table over to the Octopod her Grandma got her, and Captain Barnacles and Kwazii go over to the more »

    Just lurking, but I saw this article about how commonly quoted statistics on fertility for women over 30 come from 17th -19th century French parish records - and might not be accurate for today. Thoug more »

    WPP - I am on board with the try and get your parents to wait train. It will make it easier for everyone if you have a few weeks to get your feet back under you. My MIL came two days after DD was born more »

    DS had his 4 month checkup today. He was 12 lb. 14 oz. and 23.8 inches long. He moved from the 1st percentile to the 7th in height and weight, so he's still a little peanut. I, too, am jealous of all more »

    DD has her first day of pre-K today! SHe is excited and shy (she says). I'll have to see how she feels when I pick her up!   The book list is great. I love the Frances books, but DD only likes Bread a more »

    I like mysteries, so I've been going through the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, I think they are up to 20 books now. She also has a sci-fi/fantasyish couple of books Wicked Appetite and Wic more »

    WPP - Kegels, kegels, kegels!  I had leakage issues towards the end of pregnancy with DS, and right after both DD and DS. If I sneezed or laughed to hard, and if I really had to go (and honestly, towa more »

    IPW - What I'm about to say is probably stuff you've heared before, but, here goes: First off, my mom was a public health nutritionist, so I grew up with a lot of exposure to healthy eating, and most more »
