Also, my husband picked up a plastic easel we used outside last summer and it's on our curb in Rowley with a free sign on it if someone wants to "try before you buy."

A good friend is a chircopractor and most of her pediatric patients are actually kids who suffer from chronic ear infections. It's very debatable I suppose, but a chiropractic realignment can drain th more »

MissLily, mostly I'm just posting to say "hugs" and "vent away." It sounds like you have alot going on, aren't feeling that great, and are rightfully upset. I'm always amazed how how much you manage, more »

I wish I could just like all these posts - such great stuff to think about. For toys, DD also likes to just use the real thing, and as often as possible (i.e. if it's safe) we let her use them. Honest more »

Wow, this is a great post! I have a similar problem, and DD will be 3 in August. Non compliance is a challenge. We definitely practice natural consequences. She's also learned she has a window of oppo more »

Thanks everyone, especially Kar on the defense :) You are all so right, it's life, these things happen and if these parents are that judgemental, they have bigger issues than po0p in their back yard!

Med, DD stands on a chair, but we have a really, really small kitchen (think cubicle sized, with sink and stove!) so she's never more than an arms reach away. I have looked at the learning tower, but more »
