For example: Today is a day that I don't usually go to the gym. However, I'm just sort of feeling like going. They provide childcare, and she generally loves to go. However, when I mentioned going, she said she didn't want to go today. Do you go anyways? Do you respect her voice? Do you say "ok, we won't go today, but Monday we'll be back?" I find myself wanting to have her have some say in her life (obviously) and will do things like delay going to the...
I've considered just taking the car seat onboard, but my kiddo is only good for about an hour in a car seat right now. It's one of the reasons that we got the CARES harness for the plane. She is 2-1/2 and pretty much hates being restricted in her movement. I figured she'd have more space in the CARES to move around in her seat. My guess is that the holiday flights aren't going to have much room for her to get her wiggles out in the aisle, y'know? All that said, I...
We are flying from WA to CA for Christmas this year. A few months back I purchased a CARES harness and will be using it on the plane (wahoo!). However, I will need to bring my carseat with us for use on the other end. How do you package your carseat to ensure it remains as safe as possible when it is being checked? I presume a gate-check... is there anything else I can/should do? I see that there are "car seat travel bags" but I don't really have $50 to spend at the...
I just tried this recipe this morning and it was yummy. Enjoy. Warm & Nutty Cinnamon Quinoa - warm breakfast type thing.
Everything they said. I had a fitting at Nordstroms for the first nursing bra I purchased, and it happened to be Anita. I have been ordering it online since (with one fitting when DD had just turned 2 and cut way back on nursing).
Aww... Hope you can get another one soon!
Hi all -- Feels like it's been ages since I've bounced around these boards, much less this thread. I've been really missing my practice lately as I haven't found a sangha nearby that works for me and my family. I have a question that may have already been answered (I may have even already asked this), but might be a good jumping off point for our final quarter... How did you choose the tradition that you practice? Do most people practice the tradition they first...
There's a wonderful AP moms meetup group for the Eastside. I've only been with it for a few months, but all of the mamas are really wonderful and supportive. Ages of the kiddos are from newborn to... 7 or 8, I believe. Lots of activities, and all across the Eastside, from Bothell to Renton. Here's the link! http://www.meetup.com/eastsideap/
If you really need a payday type loan, check your local credit union. I know that ours has a payday loan program, but without the outrageous interest (comparatively speaking) and they try to ensure that it does not become a vicious cycle. Might be another option, if you are already out of all others.
Another "yup, mine does it too". Her favorite is to eat the PB&J, then ask for more of "just inside please". How can I resist?
