Another one to take a look at is Moving Beyond the Page.
I have most of these issues with my DD as well. We're getting her evaluated to find out for sure if, as we suspect, she's ADD.   We'll be doing lessons part of the time this year in the law library (I'm starting law school), and part of the time on our back patio (DD usually does well there).
It's hard to look stuff up while nak. I came across this: http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2011/06/24/20110624baby-dies-morphine-breast-milk.html   Is this actually possible? Isn't it more likely the baby was dosed directly?
I have the same issue but reversed (my right produces more than my left), and night nursing is my main weapon to keep supply up on the left. I do subconsciously tend to hold DS on the right and it's often easiest to offer first, so I have to consciously focus on offering the off-side. My DD didn't do this so early and I wasn't pumping much in the early months; she did eventually wean to pretty much just the right side, but not until she was around 2 I think.   DS...
I tried to be fairly neutral in my expectations of what being a girl meant for DD. I avoided pink when she was a baby because I don't care for it. I encouraged her to express herself and be herself. By age 3 she made it clear she was inclined to be a girly-girl. She likes pink. She likes dresses and frills. She got her hair cut very short like her friend T (a boy) when she was 5, and her peers (with the notable exception of T, who at that time still liked borrowing her...
Thanks for all the tips! I like your suggestion, ~Pi. I might do that at the end of law school. For now I just need one formal business outfit--I got the heads up on the formal presentation in the L1 writing class at the welcome day.   Something like that "12 things every woman should have in her wardrobe" looks a little alien to me, to be honest. The only skirts I like are ankle or at least mid-calf length, none of my jeans currently fit (and frankly it's too hot...
DS is already well into the size of diapers that were our main go-too for the long stretch for DD, that fit her from like 6-18 mo. or so, and has been since he was about 5 weeks old! I'm going to need more in the large/20+ lb. range for him for sure. We're totally loving the dozen pocket dipes my midwife gave us (her son is 5 mo. older than mine, they were hand me downs). I only had a few pockets for DD, a couple of PT Fuzzibunz and a couple of other large ones. I really...
Treating Bible stories as historical fact (notably ones for which there is no historical backing--such as Moses--to me is a very big Christian bias. That and the way hunter-gatherers and nomads were equated as the same thing in the first chapter (with the implication that they didn't bathe regularly whereas farmers with a city would) pretty much turned me off to the series.
At this point, I need one outfit for certain in-class presentations, interviews, etc. Given that I'm currently working on losing baby weight, more than one outfit would be uncalled for I think.   I'd follow that "imitate someone whose style you like" thing, but I can't think of anyone I actually know.   I wish I was a guy in this respect. It's a lot more straightforward for them!
I'm starting law school in the fall and one of the things I'm going to have to buy is professional attire. The problem is, I have never in my life had to do this before (shop for and then dress in professional attire). Last time I was in a professional environment, I was in the military and hence a uniform. Since I got out, I've had an informal student/mom wardrobe, plus semi-uniform attire for work (discount retail).   Any tips or guidance? I feel in over my head in...
