Congratulations, @SynEpona!    I won't be online for a few days, so I'm glad I got to read all these great tidbits.    I found out yesterday that my MIL needs a ride to Boston for an appt. with a specialist tomorrow, so I'm heading off today.  She lives about halfway there (3.5 hours from me), so I'll be taking the first half of my trip and spending the night with her and driving the second 3.5 hrs first thing tomorrow morning.  I'm bringing 2yoDD with me and leaving...
I took DD2 to the beach as an infant and she got actual gooey tar on her bare bottom.  NOTHING would take that stuff off, then I found through a google search that I should try olive oil on a cotton ball.  She was clean quickly with no additional irritation.  DP and I have successfully used it to remove stage makeup & Halloween makeup as well.
Sign me up! 
Standing by, and my sister in Windham is tentatively expecting a visit from us...
Thanks!  I'll be checking this out... 
 I actually misspelled Vaughan in my previous post.  It's a family surname, pronounced the same either way in America.  (In the original Welsh pronunciation, there were two syllables - sounds kind of like Voran if you were to roll the 'r', and I've toyed with the idea of using its original pronunciation but decided against it...  If I use it, I should probably match the surname spelling even though it may be a little confusing.
I know of an adorable curly-haired boy named Haze. Not sure if that's his full name... I could see a name like Myst or Stormy/Storm for a boy. There is a little boy in my 4yoDD's Pre-K class named Cedar, and I love it. I found this discussion of natural/elements names as well. There are lots for girls & boys: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/threads/69997-Element-names!
If you decide to try Papaya Enzyme, the most effective kind my DP and I have found is American Health Original Papaya Enzyme. http://www.americanhealthus.com/pages/products.aspx?prnt=Products&cat=Digestion&brand=AH&sku=001130   I have noticed that other kinds lack Papain, Amylase, and Protease on the ingredients label.  http://images.vitaminimages.com/cdn/sd/pdf/L001130-AH.pdf  (DP's mother decided to give it a try with a generic brand and it was not effective and we...
Ha!  Something to add to this afternoon's therapy session...
You've hit my sore spot.  This is a big problem for me.    I entered adulthood with teeth that had been neglected most of my childhood.  My family's lifestyle left me and my 4 sisters (at the time -- my parents had 2 more DDs after I moved out) without a toothbrush for entire summers.  (We didn't have shoes, either, or a home for that matter but that's beside the point.)  I saw two dentists during my childhood.  One in first grade and the other in seventh grade.  The...
