Seriously, the Little Mommy one is great! DD has had her since she was 18 months and she absolutely adores her. Like the PP said, the outfits are hard to find but they sell them online too. Plus if you're like me, one or two outfits is plenty.View Thread
On my lunch break I ran to a store and when I packed I heard a car alarm going off right across from me. I took a closer look and saw a little boy about 3 sitting in the passenger seat screaming with tears running down his face. I look a little closer and notice that there's no one in there with him. For a brief second, I was going to call the police but I thought I'd give the parent the benefit of doubt and going into the store to see if she/he could be paged. While I'm talking to an employee about it, the mom happened to be right there so she dropped her stuff and ran out to him. If we couldn't have found the parent, I was going to go back out and call the police. That just ticked me off!! He was so frightened. Who knows how long she was in the store. I don't even leave DD in the car alone to walk the 20+ steps to the library door to return a book. I was furious but I didn't have the guts to yell at her. WWYD?View Thread
It gets easier! DD cried for two nights for it but now she has no problem going to sleep without it. She was 21 months when we took it. We told her that it went to a baby who needed it too, so now whenever she thinks about it she'll remind herself..paci to babies, it's too cute. However, yesterday at church she found a paci in the nursery toys (kid must've dropped it or something) and they told me she was sucking on it until they realized it wasn't hers. GROSS!!View Thread
We got this one for DD. She loves it (Emma) and wants to take her everywhere we go. She also likes to feed Emma and have Emma participant in some of the same activities that she does. Her body is soft but her arms and legs are hard plastic. DD doesn't really know how to change her clothes yet but she loves taking her shoes off and on.
Not sure if you found something by now but I found a really cute cardboard one that's a kit at Christmas Tree Shoppes. I didn't use all the decorative stuff in the kit but it was still really cute. I paid like $5 for it.View Thread
It might not be as bad as you think and it could be good timing since you have a baby due in January. It will give her a good amount of time to adjust to a big girl bed. We moved DD at 18 months and I was afraid that she wouldn't stay in bed. Boy was I wrong! Now I'm trying to teach her to climb out of her bed in the morning instead of staying in it crying until we come in. She gets herself so worked up. My suggestion is when you transition her, let her be a part of the process. Let her "help" put the bed together and if you are getting new bedding let her help with that. We put DD in her bed first at nap time, so it wouldn't be as scary as night. We made a big deal about her going into her big girl bed and that it was going to be fun!View Thread
breezy_83255 don't feel bad. I don't check up on my DD that much either, other than when she is staying at home with my mom b/c she's sick. Then I want to know how she's doing incase I need to make a doctor's appointment. At the end of the day when I pick DD up from daycare, I'll briefly talk to her teacher about her day. I guess I'm in the minority with you!
tempymae2007 - I like the PP's suggestion about having a form for your sister to fill out. That's what our center does, so if the teacher has to leave before I get there, I have some idea of how DD behaved during the day. This could be why I don't worry about her as much during the day b/c I know I'll have a form telling me what she ate and how much, her diaper changes (BM or Wet) and what time, and then how she napped. This might be easier for your sister so that she doesn't feel like you are constantly "bugging" her.View Thread
I will not watch it b/c I don't want to support the beliefs of that show. I strongly believe that you should only have one wife and that having more than one wife is the same as having an affair.
In a way, I feel that these women are forced into these marriages and don't have much of a say. I honestly don't feel that any woman would be happy sharing her husband with other women and if she says she does, she's lying. Many of these girls are forced into these "relationships" when they are young and they aren't in love with the man. Sometimes I wonder how they could get away with this by law...isn't that rape?
elegi23 - your statement about jealousy and how you'd say something to your husband. I don't think these women are free to openly speak to their husband, so they probably just deal with it. Plus if they are forced into these relationships, I highly doubt that they can be jealous. They're probably excited about the nights that he doesn't come to them.
These are just my opinions and I'm not bashing anyone for watching it but I will not be supporting that type of lifestyle.View Thread
DD loves to sing. She's not very good at all the words but I can tell what song she's singing from the melody. Her favorites are ABC (she calls them EFGs...too funny!) Twinkle Twinkly, Intsy Bitsy Spider, Happy and You Know it, Head, Shoulder, Knees and Toes, and Michael Finagin (she calls that the chinny song). We do a lot of singing in our house too. She also loves to dance to pretty much any music she hears.View Thread
