Awe our son is doing the same thing right now. I know alot of ppl frown on it, but i love my babes and figure in a few years they will be grown up, and this way i get to cherish even more time with them. I see nothing wrong with it, he feels safe with us, sleeps through the night and know his mommy and daddy love him. One day he'll be ready to move back into his room and until that time im gonna hold him a lil closer!View Thread
How long of sentences, my almost 2.5 year old knows a million words, but he's sentences consist of things likes, dark outside, or not raining, or kali jean stop it. He knows his ABCs can count to 12. But he doesnt come up to me and say mommy i want a ham sandwich.View Thread
Since our son loves water and throwing rocks and making "sploshes" I told him how fun it is to poop on the potty and make realy big sploshes in the potty. He thinks its fun, i guess go with what he thinks is fun and incorporate it into potty training.View Thread
I really dont think it is their choice on stopping your child from sucking her thumb, that would be up to you. I think i'd be mad if they told me my son or daughter couldnt suck their thumb, it isnt hurting anyone...View Thread
My son turned 2 at the end of April and at the end of may i had a week off, so i decided what the heck we'll give potty training a shot. For the last month i just have my son in regular underwear at home and he always says when he has to go and runs to the potty or pulls em down and goes when we are outside. Our sitter is awesome and he stays dry their all the time and has just in the last week started to tell her when he has to poop. I still put him in a pull up to go there, its my choice cuz id hate for him to have an accident on her carpeting, even tho he always stayed dry thier. I do notice that if you do put them in a pull-up they wont tell u when they have to go and will wet in em. Id just go with the underpants and just use the pull up at night! Good luck!!View Thread
I would refuse him all that junk food, and a gallon a day that im sure is filling him up. I give him the food that you guys are eating and if he doesnt eat, oh well, i never forced my kids to eat and at a lil over 2 and 10 months they are great eaters, love fruits and veggies and i still offer them special treats a few times a week, but usually will pick eating fruit or veggies as a snack. the whole sleeping thing, I hear ya on that they may be good eaters, but they both stink at sleeping and i have no advice for you their, sorry!View Thread
Really a 2 year old going to preschool? I find that a little ridiculous. I find sending a 4 yr old to school a lil ridiculous to. I was almost 6 when i started 5 yr old kindergarten i think that is young enough! Poor kids dont even get to be kids anymore!!View Thread
My son started playin the nintendo wii at around 21 months, he was actually really good at it, he played it on and off for about 6 months and outgrew the phase. Then he was hooked on my kindle fire and plays games on that all the time angry birds and number and alphabet games. I wouldnt let her play it all the time, but i dont see a problem with letting them play once in a whild.View Thread
I would def try a speech therapist, if she has done this since birth there has to be something causing this and hopefully they can find the reason. So glad she hasnt aspirated or gotten pneumonia from doing this! Good luck!View Thread
