I am having trouble getting my 4 year old son to eat more than 3 or 4 specific foods (nuggets, green beans, apple, and noodles. I am concerned as he stopped liking milk or PediaSure as soon as he was introduced to the cup. He is a very strong-willed, stubborn, and defiant at times. Eating time is one of them. We have tried introducing colorful foods, different textures, even blending for smoothies, nothing works. He is the type to smell is foods first and then decide.
Help!!!!!!! I am worried he is not getting the nourishment needed to continue growing and being healthy.

Use gold plastic coins to encourage counting. When the child does anything worthwhile or helpful give tokens and then ask the child how many tokens they have. Keep them in a box and only let the child take the box to count the tokens with you. Make a reward chart and put things on the chart they can use their tokens with. For example: 10 tokens Mom will make my bed. They will learn to count as high as you want by setting numbers for things they want. Teach them to count by fives by setting prices in sets of 5,10,15. Works Great!View Thread
Mr Clean Magic Eraser baby (also mr clean imposter) this will get rid of it paint won't stick to wax and sometimes the light colors fail to cover marker. Blue is best for hide. Start lightly because so of the paint may rub off just making it a tad dull but doesn't stick out like that orange crayon does. PS if you have children why would you ever buy flat paint?? Its generally unwashable.View Thread

Maybe some of you already know this but I just discovered you can download lego instruction books from their website. I bought DS a set this time last year and the book is no where to be found. Well I just checked their site and they have over 3000 instruction bookets available for download with sets dating back to 2002. You need to enter the code on the side of the bucket or there is a drop down menu for you to choose which set you have. It is really cool.
when my son was about 1 our doctor thought my son had undescended testicles and sent us to a specialist. The specialist said he was find and was able to find his testicles with no problem. We haven't really paid much attention to it but recently my husband think that his testicles might have went back up and at time you can defintely see that his testicles is up. So I was thinking that maybe he has retractable testicles. If anyone has any ideas let me know.View Thread
Go to the dollar store and buy some glowsticks, then for bathtime (after kids are safely in the tub) dim the lights and have a glowing bath. Doing this in a bubble bath is especially fun, because the whole layer of bubbles is illuminated.
