About 4 months ago, DH and were playing in the livingroom with DD. For some reason, she just stopped what she was doing, turned towards the wall, and smiled and waved. I jokingly asked "What are you doing? Do you see a ghost?" The next day I found out a friend had died that night. I guess he was just stopping by to say goodbye. (Miss you Blain.)

The only casserole dishes I have are pyrex, but I've heard that if you freeze pyrex and then cook with it in the oven, it could "explode". Has anyone else heard of this or know if it's true? I would really like to start feeding my freezer, but I don't know if I should get different dishes first.

Also, remind them to label their dishes so when it's time to return them, mom will know which dish belongs to whom. PS This is a very thoughtful thing to do. I wish someone had done it for me!

Thanks everyone. I feel a lot better now. She speaks really well already so I'm not worried that it will affect her speech or anything. I guess I'll just try to not worry about what others say we "should" or "shouldn't" be doing.

Since she was about 6 months old, my LO only used a paci at bed time and naps. But lately she's been asking for it more often. I usually let her have it and don't make a big deal out of it bc I don't want to turn it into a power struggle or make it into a "You won't let me have it so I want it even more" kind of thing. I read that toddlers should give up their paci by 12 mo and she's already 16 mo. How do I help her give it up? or should I even worry about it now? TIA

How much time does he spend with dad? Maybe they can get up a little earlier just spend time together, just the two of them. Or if he's in bed when dad gets home, maybe let him stay up a little later. I hope whatever the problem is it works itself out soon.

I worked in a family restaurant for 5 yrs. One time a family came in-granma, granpa, mom, dad, and 3 kids. They ordered their food, ate their meal, then ate dessert, and then left...without paying. But mom left her purse. My manager called the police and they were waiting for them when they came back for it. One time a co-worker at the same restaurant was waiting on a man who had ordered a well-done steak. Well, that takes some time to cook, meanwhile the people at...

I thought I was really clever outsmarting those predatory auto mechanics ya know Same here, except I thought the mechanic rolled the tires backward. I thought why don't people just go to an empty parking lot and drive backward?
