    Hey Ladies, I don't post very much because I don't have alot to say these days (and now I am going to sound like Debbie Downer - I apologize!) I thought of the same thing maybe last year, that DD need 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!

    I pushed hard for the Dr. Sears schedule but my husband would not hear of it, it was his adamant parent thing. We vaccinated on schedule and in return I got to have DD baptized in my parent's church. more »

    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 »
