I am ignorant in this area, I have been buying mine from Vitamin Cottage for a while now, since I started using it. ...

Thank to you both and I will look up all those books at the library!
Awhile back I posted about a girlfriend who was going to be shopping at WALMART and while she has been finding a lot at the Farmer's Mkt she has still had to shop at the WALMART for some certain things. some products she found but wondered about: "natural" pepperoni that is nitrate free but by Hormel I think she said. coconut oil by LouAnne, I think. She said the container doesn't say much about the oil itself except that it is solid at room temp....
My grandma would get one of those much smaller living trees that is potted and decorate that with lights and ornaments and set it on a table. It was really cute yet still little and containable. Maybe that helps, I dunno.
I don't love toddler-hood as much as I loved baby-hood or imagine I will love older ages. If you do love toddler-hood, tell me why, maybe I will glean some goodness from you. If you don't, tell me and maybe I will relate!
The title pretty much says it all! I always knew toddlerhood would be hard for me, and it is. I love that she is a VERY verbal just-2, but also....she is a v.e.r.y.v.e.r.b.a.l. just-2, y'know?! She knows what she wants and will tell you all about. She does not accept no as an answer, which is fine, I ignore her if she melts down until she is ready to accept my comforting. But it is really mentally and emotionally exhausting to me at the same time. So please tell...

She still yells sometimes and she can still be quite demanding, but it has helped a LOT. This is hard. DD does this too. Lately I've been telling her to please only ask once, that sometimes I have heard her but can't answer right away, and that if I don't...

But when I went back to school after the vacation, I never really mentioned what I got. And I shudder now to think of my...

I would suggest a compromise i.e. Only have a Christmas Stocking (the best bit in my opinion) and if anyone wants to contribute to that fine. Accept gifts but open them on another day like Boxing Day (the 26th) or new years eve Have one gift every day...
dd has had a baby doll for about a year, she is 2, but she just got one for her birthday that cries and laughs and kicks it legs and arms and she is REALLY into her, loves her, feeds her, holds her and puts her in her grocery cart to bring her "Shopping". It's really cute.
