    Thanks MissLily and CT - DS will be 2 this week but is so vocal I forget he is so young sometimes.  I do try the 5-3-1 but I think I need to be better about it when leaving daycare.  Yesterday one of more »

    Poppy - for books we are using Joann Cole's big brother book - there is a sister version and ds LOVES it.  We also got the Sears one but it is not as good for your age group.  DS will be 2 on Sunday a more »

    I was going to say sounds like you just need a more sensitive doctor - that comment is heartless and we did do some cry it out.  I cant do attachment parenting but if my doctor had said that to me - I more »

    DS throws fits leaving DC as well.  He will run to give me a hug and then just wants to play and explore.  Getting him into the carseat is especially challenging.  So I let him walk around the car for more »
