Also the Doll People and it's two sequels and the series of Paddington chapter books.
If you are looking at McHenry County, you probably also should think about HOW you want to commute. Huntley and Marengo are closest to I90, so are better for car commuting. Neither is on the train line. Harvard and Woodstock are on the train line but are farther from I90. Woodstock is closer to I90 than Harvard. McHenry is also on the train line, but is sort of an offshoot of the main line so does not have as many trains going to it. The other thing about...
A few places in the area that might be a little calmer (and therefore leaning more waldorfy) are Family Grounds Cafe in Chicago, the Family Room in Evanston, and Nibbles Play Cafe in Wheeling (I think). I have not been to any for a party, but have been with dd's to play and they are all geared to under 5s. They all have some plastic toys, barely anything electronic and tons of imaginative toys. You can go to open play times at all of them to check them out. If you...
My 4 year old just grew out of the Gerber trainers (only ones she would wear) and we have moved on to underwear from the Children's Place with the covered elastic on top. A week into it and she is loving them!!! This Kind http://www.childrensplace.com/webapp...rwear_biggirls

When my dd's were afraid of sharks, wolves and bears being in thier room at bedtime they really responded to learning about the actual habitats of those animals and then understanding that their room (for sharks) and our town (for the other two) is just not where they live. Once they learned it wasn't possible, the fear was gone.

I also feel that, as a young mother, people...
When my dd's were two they wanted Red and Pink When they were three they wanted new blankies (because the fuzzy part had worn off) and a new windup Santa and Snowmen (because the feet had broken off thiers) This year they want clothes for thier dolls. Two particular dolls who don't have clothes aside from the ones dd's make out of kleenex and coffee filters. Oh, and one dd want something so she can walk on the ceiling . She does seem to accept that this doesn't...
Dd2 and I got it on a Saturday, DD1 got it Monday and DH didn't get it at all even though he stayed home all week to take care of us .
My 4 yr old DD is not autisitic, but has strong sensory sensitivities. She also has an autoimmune disease that was diagnosed at 2 that continues to require medical procedures and looooong Dr. Appointments with many things required of dd. Here are a few things I've learned along the way..... 1. Child Life Specialists are Great Allies. Now that we've kind of got things down we don't need one anymore, but in the beginning really, really helped. For the first MRI,...
