I have been absent for the last few days and this morning had time to catch up and was sure that I would be reading JenLove's birth story. Sprout is taking her time! Glad to hear that things are progressing. Thinking of you!

Isn't it a trip how...
OT question: mamas with older girls. When did your girls start any signs of puberty? DD1, who just turned 7 a month ago, has a tiny bit of pubic hair, which she has had for a little bit. She also gets these random, but nasty looking pimples on various places on her body. Not acne per se. Should I be worrying about precocious puberty or is this all in the realm of normal?
DD2's stomach bug came back again, or rather never completely left. This after missing 6 days...
DrJen, thinking of you. Sounds super tough.
Since we are on the topic of movies, we just watched a completely heart-breaking one: Breaking the Waves. It was particularly triggering for me, but man, what a movie. I was bawling.

When I first started, I found myself hungry between meals (and thought that I was starving ), I would have a snack, like carrots and hummus, but after a few days, my body adjusted and I didn't need the snacks.
Just found this thread. I did E2L before, and am now trying to get serious about getting back to it to get rid of the 15 lbs or so that have crept back on.
Salad dressings: I really like a salad w/ brown rice vinegar, a generous amount of dill, and Braggs. I tend to not take his salt heeding too seriously, although I wouldn't say that I eat alot of it.
Coffee, not giving it up. And I liberally use milk.
Ultimately, you have to find a way to live with this...
JenLove, hmmm seems like it is about time to
Gaye, mani/pedi? Coffee shop with a book?
Mandy, I have to thank you for the reminders to get back to E2L. I so need to get back to that, and am trying now on day 2.
Bored kids in school. I just finally put two and two together that DD1 is probably bored with her math. The homework seems ridiculously easy, but after an informal poll, found that not all parents agree. Talked to DD about it last night and am...
