Did this thread get deserted? or perhaps the holidays made it become desserted, as in, too many sweets and no one is cooking? I admit to having fallen away from creative and yummy cooking lately. Today I have had it up to my eyebrows with party leftovers (CANNOT. EAT. ONE. MORE. BITE. OF. PASTA. SALAD.) and have a wonderful-smelling split pea soup in the crock pot. I used this recipe. It sure smells good -- I'll let you know about the taste. We'll serve it with...
Does anyone have experience with school-age girls getting lots of UTIs? I've read a ton on MDC about little ones with UTIs and what has been done w/r/t VUR and VCUGs and such, but my daughter is 6.5 and has had her third one since Thanksgiving. She is having a VCUG on Friday. Does anyone have any insight? She's totally healthy in every other way...but was hard to potty train and just night trained at 5.5 years old. TIA!
DD2 is no longer a toddler but was a teeny little 2 year old, and we had the same problem. The undies you buy at target that are labeled from 2-3 years really are wide-ranging in fit -- the disney princess ones (blech) still fit her now at 28 pounds, but the sesame street ones (elmo and zoe) fit ok at her under-20-pound stage and are small now. HTH!
Because I've never been anything but vegetarian as an adult, I don't know if this would be cheaper than meat (in other words, I've never bought meat!), but what about making chili with veggie crumbles? I am trying to think of things that wouldn't feel like "side dishes" to your meat-n-potatoes guys. How about a meal like this: bean & veggie crumbles or TVP chili baked potatoes with cheese/sour cream garlic bread steamed veggies (for those who'd eat them)
Many thanks to all the mamas who have written so thoughtfully. I'm looking into an evaluation -- I don't know how one goes about getting that done here, but I have a contact who is an OT in a nearby town, and have emailed her to ask if she knows anyone who does that. My little DD2 has been through so much with her health -- I hate to imagine another road to travel for us with specialists and treatment, etc. -- but if she needs that, she needs it. I guess we have to...
Thank you all for your very thoughtful responses. I took at look at some of that SPD stuff and some of it resonates, while most of it does not. For example -- she is not bothered by textures much (likes to play with sand, likes to knead bread dough, play with flour, play with playdough, etc.), she doesn't seem irritated by chaos or loud noise, she is affectionate but not clingy, she eats lots of different foods and even tries more new things than her older sister, she...
HUGE Laurie Berkner fans over here!!: They also like musical soundtracks, like Annie and Mary Poppins and (sigh) the ones from some of the Disney Princess movies. If I hear "Part of Your World" one more time....
Hi all, I am hoping someone will be able to tell me I'm overreacting... My 3yo DD2 has really awful tantrums. DD1 did not, so this is new territory for us, but I think we're doing all the best things for her and it's only getting worse. I joke privately that she has Seinfeld tantrums because they are about nothing. I don't mean that they are about something that just I think is nothing -- they are really about NOTHING. She will find something frustrating, we'll offer...
We don't put spinach in smoothies, but I freeze it for all sort of things. I take it raw and put it through the food processor, fill ice cube trays with the puree, and then cover with a little bit of water and freeze. Once they're frozen, I pop the cubes out into ziplock bags and use them as needed. It works really well!
