congrats on your pregnancy!
yup, soraya makes me think of psoriasis, too. Maya is a great name that I hope never becomes too trendy so that it can retain it's specialness.

This is a problem to me because much of what you may think of as "gangster slang" is really the vernacular used in the African American communities. "Ebonics," as it is sometimes called, is a dialect that many African Americans can switch in and out of with ease. In the several years I have taught in Harlem I have seen how...
I am glad that my baby (7 mos) doesnt wake up crying or upset in the middle of the night. I really am. But what she does is the other extreme. Every night around 3am, she wakes up for Baby Party Time. :: She is shrieking with joy, turning over, babbling volumes, kicking her feet high in the air and generally partying.

Maybe at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm... By the second or third time I bring her in bed with us and she sleeps better for the rest of the night. Sometimes she sleeps solidly from 5am-9 or 10am.... Then, usually an hour nap in the late morning and an hour (sometimes two) around 4pm. Is this...

Hey all. I came across this on the web when I was trying to find some advice for beating sugar addiction... I think it gets to the heart of what I was asking originally with this post. "To guarantee your success in winning the sugar game, you’ll need the following four magic playing pieces: 1. HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS If you turn to sugar when your relationships are unstable, it is time to work on the relationships. 2. FULFILLING CAREER OR LIFE PATH If you turn to...

Why don't you ask your MIL to take your LO out on a long walk or an errand so that you can have some alone time with DH at home? I felt the same way as you but we did go...
