    Fram, sorry about the terrible threes (and about DH moving out).  And don't think just because its a stage that its your fault or that you can do anything about it.  Our threes are definitely worse th more »

    Hi Summer, Congrats on your PG#2!  We moved DS to a new room for the same reason; it was bigger and made much more sense for him.  His crib was also a convertible, and we had an extra set of full matt more »

    Hi there, Glad to hear that pull ups are almost over Luv... its a nice feeling!  And Fram sounds like she'll be done with accidents very soon.  Yes, the warm weather is a godsend.  DS#1 wants to be ou more »

    I can't believe I finally found these discussions.  That was my problem, I kept searching for "discussion" instead of "forum."  I wanted to answer about this.  We bought this last year from BJs, and y more »

    Sorry this is way off topic, but you all always have such great advice.  A cousin I havent seen in 20 years has invited me to his vow renewal ceremony.  They are going all out.  Ceremony and then full more »

    KMMZ - I am so sorry for you and your family... it only hit my DS1 (fortunately for the rest of us, unfortunately for him) but he was SOO miserable for those 12 hours.  I can't imagine any of that bei more »

    Med, that is so interesting that you have an allergy to only cashews (and yes... according to Google, the cashew and the pistachio are directly related... as is the mango... do you react to a mango?). more »

    What an insane 48 hours.  Sunday afternoon, driving to friend's house in NH.  Give DS1 half of my Lara Bar (dates and cashews).  He said it was "spicy" (odd as it definitely wasn't), immediately compl more »

    I agree Med.  What are flashcards for this age?  Vocabulary or math??  We do learning by doing around the house as well, and lots of repetition.  Lots of counting activities lately since he loves to c more »

    ALS - second time in two days we've posted at the exact same time.  We must have the same lull in our daily schedule to check boston.com :-)

    Cwag... similar post about DST and lighter evenings.  Previously we'd get home from daycare around 5:15 or so and it was already dark.  So no requests to play outside.  Last night DS1 (3.5) realized v more »

    Yay Med for her playing at the party!  My DS1 (3.5yr) also won't play at those funspaces.  We've been to two b'day parties at those places with the jumpy houses and inflatables/slides.  Won't go near more »

    WPP - very exciting.  Good luck with the move.  Love the thoughts above about giving choices, but in statements rather than questions.  I'm going to try to use that more.  DS2 is doing really well, 16 more »

    Thanks cwag... he is 16 lbs at 14 weeks... so clearly not affecting his weight :-)  But I will call just to check.  I'm prepared to do as you did though... more laundry and floor cleaning!  DS1 never more »

    Med and ALS, so sorry about the ear infection.  My friend just had tubes put into her 18 mths ears because she had them none stop.  Arcain... I always thought about getting AFLAC (my company doesn't e more »

    Seconding the "when they are ready" theory.  DS trained for pee in a week.  Never a pee accident after that.  But he p00ped in his underwear every day.  He wasn't afraid, as the few times I caught him more »

    In response to two questions.  On independent play, it all depends.  My almost 3.5 year old can sometimes play by himself for an hour.  But other days he wants me to play with him no matter what.  Las more »

    Med, I could be wrong, but I think if the nighttime diaper is still wet, she's not ready.  My DS wears a pull-up to bed, and it has been dry every single morning for about a month.  But selfishly I'm more »

    KAM, I also have a shoveler at home.  My DS1 (almost 3.5) LOVES to shovel.  As soon as we mention snow, he asks if he can shovel.  We got him a shovel his size and he's actually quite good at it.  We' more »

    I just learned that I am going to need to travel for work for an overnight.  LO will then be 12 weeks (ugh!) and is exclusively breastfed, and I pump for his daycare bottles.  Any tips on how best to more »

    Just chiming in on the food issue.  Last night my 3 year old had an apple for dinner.  That's it.  He turned his nose up at the chicken he always eats, and he didn't even try the potato pancake with k more »

    KMMZ - don't think I said so already, but congrats on #2!!  If I recall it took quite a bit of trying and hard work... so really excited for you and your family!!  As of now, we are keeping our two in more »

    CLC, so sorry.  So many of us have had miscarriages, and they are so hard regardless of when they happen, and whether for your first, second, or fifth baby.  Good luck once you are ready to try again. more »
