One of the best...

I guess I should have clarified the eating them part ... they weren't the same ones that were up his nose. He ate some and stuck others up his nose. Usually he'd just stick them up his nose, pull it right out and then repeat ... but the odd time they'd get stuck and I had to go in with tweezers. Too many times I'd have to pull the ones he ate out of his butt at a diaper change ... did I mention I was glad he stopped eating them ...
Not anytime soon if she's like DS. It was over a year ago that I had to take him to the Dr. to have a rotten, stinky blanket string removed from his nose. About a week ago he was blowing his runny nose and out came a clump of blanket strings!!! He said he put them up there the other day ... he's almost THREE! At least he's stopped eating them ...

I know a father and daughter who both had/have it. I have no idea regarding the relationship to chicken pox though. Maybe hereditary?
I don't recall the exact age DD got breast buds but it was very early, between 7 & 8 she started getting hair a bit before the buds. She is not chubby but she is tall and "sturdy" if you will (like her mom ) I thought she would start her period very early and develop early as well but she only started her period the month before her 11th b'day and is probably just now an A cup (if that). So I don't think really early signs mean it's all going to happen right around...

Ok, I was 99% sure I was done baby making ... starting to remember how much I loved the smell of baby breath ...
Yup ... just plain creepy!
Too funny!!! DS is always barking like a dog and bringing over his ball for me to throw for him to fetch He sticks his tongue out and pants and waits for you to say "good doggy" and pat him or rub his ears once he brings it back in his mouth!!
