My 4 & 6 year old will be doing soccer this summer. I wanted to take my dd to some gymkhanas this summer, and maybe a jr. rodeo, but we don't have the money, and the truck that pulls the trailer is broken down. So maybe next. I'm interested to hear what the OP's dd is in?!?! Rifle-shooting? Football? What could be controversial for a 3.5 yo?

I can take a can of Joe's-Os from TJs and feed two three year olds and my 17 month old with it. Similarly, my 17 month old might take a juice pouch but probably won't be able to finish it like my 3 year old is. As a...

If you have a concern about allergies, talk to the parents! Oh, I talked to her about it and do mostly feed her our food. She doesn't care either way. They always send that food, and I mostly don't feed it to her, but she's only here 1-2 days a week, and since I'm 99% sure that's...

My ex-FIL was (still is, as far as I know) very thin, and he ate a ton of processed junk, including candy, and drank like a fish (odd expression, that). I...
Well, I have sent my kids to daycare before, and I think you have to assume that you're going to be judged. I think this is how they eat all the time. They are all very thin, though. The annoying part for me is that the baby is MISERABLE. I thought it was just here but the mom said she's like that at home, too. She's always super itchy - as soon as her diaper's off she just goes to town scratching, and I just think a better diet would help. I guess I'm frustrated...
Is what the parents of my 16 month old daycare charge want me to feed her. At least. I didn't figure the sugar in her whole milk or her Cheerios. But they sent her with an adult-size thing of Yoplait (27 grams), a white grape juice box (22 grams), and a can of Spaghetti-Os (11 grams)!
I haven't read the other posts, but good for you for sticking up for him. Those kind of lessons, about life's unfairness, always break my heart.

I get what you're saying, but I think he teaches it to them just because he wants to irritate his wife, and probably me. I agree they're way too young, my 4 year old didn't even get that the word was a-hole, my dd had to explain it to him. Anyway, maybe you're right and I should just let it go. It did clearly, clearly make MIL very uncomfortable, though. When they sang it for me in front of her, she almost started crying, and then said that they weren't going to be...
