If he likes dinosaurs, there is a cool new-ish show on Nick. Jr called Dino Dan. It's not a cartoon, but the description suggests that it's ok for ages 5 and up, DS is 4 and a half and he really enjoys it.   It's about a school-age kid(probably 8 or so?) that sees dinosaurs and tries to take care of them. I'm not sure if anyone else can see them, I think his mom might be able to feel their presence, but she is still skeptical when Dan talks about them. It's pretty...
Nobody does family meetings??
I thought you were asking: "Is AGE 4 easier than age 3?" to which I was going to reply, YES!!! ;)
I was wondering if anyone does family meetings, and what they typically look/sound like. :-) Our ds is 4, and the reason I want to start doing them is that there seems to be a lack of rhythm in our household....he rarely wants to help with much of anything, and I want to start getting him used to a routine of maybe choosing at least one way to help me per day. Plus I want to create a safe space where we can all sit down together, to hopefully increase our connection and...
I heard about this on facebook...they've taken the book off the virtual shelf, but from what I hear it is still available through Kindle, and they have still have another book of that type for sale.   I probably will not be shopping there again. It seems that they will put practically anything up for sale in order to make a quick buck...I am all for freedom of speech but I draw the line when that speech can cause harm or trauma to other beings, and especially children.
For Christmas...we've decided to give each of our kids 1 book and 1 toy each, and 1(maybe 2) toys that they can both play with. I have a few ideas for dd(who will be 16 months), but I'm undecided about ds. Is there a toy/building set that your very active 4 yo boy absolutely loves and plays with every day? I know he would love a marble run, but I kinda want to wait another year to get him one, as he is not great at picking up after himself and I would worry about dd...

It looks like that is what is happening over here too. She stopped by today(which I knew was happening ahead of time), and ended up...
IntuitiveJamie: Thank you.

I'm in! Don't have a stopwatch though, unless there is one on my phone. I am also guilty of coming on here for a "few minutes" 4 or 5x a day, but sometimes I get sucked into things on here or on facebook and it ends up being much longer. I'll check my phone and check back in here.
