How many outfits or days worth of clothes does your child have? How many pairs of shoes? Even though it's in the 80-90's here I need to start buying for fall. DS has worn the same clothes the last two fall/winters but now needs everything. I love shopping for their clothes but it is so expensive. I tend to overspend and buy too much. I'm just curious how much clothes everyone else buys.View Thread
I'm sorry that has got to be very annoying. I get a lot of questions and crazy comments as well. My favorite..."are they ALL yours?!?!" Then they go on to ask how far apart they are and then make a comment about me being brave/crazy. UGH It's so annoying and I know will only get worse when the twins are here!!!!View Thread
At one point I did think I was going to break the umbrella but I stopped myself. Had it been mine I wouldn't have cared.
I took the kids to a theme park one day. There was a play area with little kid sized buildings. I was telling DS he had so much time before we had to leave and some woman -a complete stranger!!! -started giving me advice on how she sets her alarm. I said well that doesn't work for us and this way does. She shut up pretty quick.View Thread
I am scheduled for a c-section on August 3rd but the doctor said as long as both babies are head down and I am favorable then they will induce that week instead. Well as of Friday they are still head down and the doctor said I am 1-2cm dilated so I say I am good to go. That's if I make it to 37wks.
I have to tell you DH is stepping up and helping a lot more. He has been clearing the table and straightening up the kitchen after dinner. He has been helping pick up the kids room. The kids have been helping too but I have had to wipe the toys down with lysol wipes since we thought DD2 had pink eye. I don't think she did though. But he has been doing more to help. Now I am interested to see how long it continues after the babies come.View Thread
The girls tend to drink more milk. DS likes water more. Now if it's chocolate milk he can drink it all day long. I don't give them much chocolate milk though. He does eat cheese and yogurt too so I think that makes up for it.View Thread
I love my ILs but they make me nuts. I have been trying to work with DS on listening and following directions. Like a lot of grandparents the ILs have always been more lax. I have let a lot of stuff go over the last few months because they do help out when it comes to watching the kids when I go to the doctor appts. But I got so mad yesterday. We were all at their house. Third time they have seen the kids this week BTW. So it was raining when we left. Actually barely raining - just a drizzle. So the other day when we left it was raining pretty hard and MIL got out umbrellas and ponchos for the kids. One umbrella would have been enough but whatever. It's a bigger PITA to use all the stuff than to just run out to the van. It's just rain they will be okay! So yesterday DS asked for an umbrella. I said no because it was barely raining. He was getting mad and wanting to agrue. Um, I said no let's go. So I went out to the van with DH and the girls. DS was still in their house pouting. So I go back in and my MIL gave him an umbrella! No joke I probably told him five times before I went out NO! And she turns around and gives him one!!!! I told him no he didn't need it and to just come out to the van. I don't know if it was a battle worth fighting but I was so aggravated that she gave him one anyway when I told him no already. I actually wrestled the thing out of DS's hands and put it up where he couldn't reach it. He got more mad and DH had to carry him out to the van. I was more aggravated with my MIL at this point than DS. If she would have just left him alone to pout then two seconds later he would have came out to the van. Instead we ended up having a huge tantrum instead. His and mine. When we got in the van I told him I didn't care what Grandma or Grandpa said or anyone else for that matter. If Mommy and Daddy say no to something it means NO!View Thread
My kids won't eat potatoes no matter how I fix them. Well I take that back. I order potato soup from O'Charlies (not sure who has this restaurant around them) but it's has a lot of cheese. But DS likes some of that to dip his roll into. I don't know if he actually eats the potato part I give him though. I always call the soup Cheese with a side of Potatoes soup.View Thread
Sorry you're going through this but I just like to say I am happy to hear I'm not the only one thinking about using soap in the mouth. I haven't done it yet but DS has been horrible lately with talking back and I was thinking of trying this. I haven't done it yet for fear he will tell his preschool teacher or pedi or something and I will end up in trouble.View Thread
