I don't think the possibility that someone might use them to kidnap my kids is very realistic...
Well. I've emailed GearGirl and haven't heard back, I hope she's ok! After reading her amazing enthusiasm and motivating encouragement, I've decided we need to keep this thread going In Absentia so she can see the awesomeness that she has started once she returns I have donated the captains bed, the queen bed, the desk, the mattress set, the rocking chair, and several bags of clothes. All was supposed to go on craigslist but I A) have held onto it for YEARS, so it's...
She does have her eggs but due to a partial hysterectomy she is very unlikely to carry to term, hence why their RE has said surro is the best route for them to go. Thank you everyone for your advice and input! DH and I have discussed this quite a bit, and I think we're going to talk to xBF first and let him know I'm leaning towards it.

We're doing multiplication with my 9yo! Here's what I did, and she LOVED it. Print out the times table square, point out there are 100 facts to learn...but they don't have to learn 100 facts! Ask what they know. They know the zeros, the ones, probably most of the twos, fives are easy peasy, and tens are no sweat. With a black crayon, x those out.
