Yes, it does. Or did for me. I have 3, ages 6 , 4 & 4. After my twins were born I knew we were done, and I was sad about that. Totally overwhelmed with parenting but so sad at each step--this is the last time I'll be pregnant, the last time baby takes their first step, says "mama" for the first time, and so on. I did mourn it. But by the time my little ones were 3 and out of diapers, life really started getting easier for me. I could go out at night with friends...
I know there was a thread like this a few months ago in the vegetarian forum that had some more suggestions. I have a thin preschooler (under 5% as well) and have met with dieticians to confirm I'm giving her what she needs. The consensus is to continue giving lots of healthy fats and oils, but also plenty of protein. I hadn't been too worried about protein before because I knew we eat enough, but now I do try to add a little more of it to her meals. I no longer worry...
I haven't read the article, but my first impression is that Time has created a provocative cover knowing that it will prejudice most readers against APing. The article is about APing, so I'm half interested in it yet half dreading what it will say. Based on the cover, I predict it will have some sort of negative spin.
We went through scabies awhile ago and that does not look like it at all. Some kind of rash, possibly fungal? Scabies is really more like tiny bug bites that get worse at night. They tend to be in the creases of skin or on the torso for kids. For us, the kids caught it and all of us broke out in SUPER itchy, tiny red spots within a couple days of each other, 4 weeks after exposure. The permetherin is a pretty serious medication, pregnant or not, and we all have...
Why not ask at your local bike shop? They are going to have a better variety than somewhere like Toys R Us, plus if you buy you'd be able to support local business. Usually if you buy your bike there they will also do adjustments and make sure it's put together correctly, which the big box stores don't do.
The BFF and her family are wonderful and that is definitely not an unhealthy friendship, I think you're reading a little too much into that. I didn't share every single detail because I don't think that is really important at this point. This is a great girl with smart parents, and maybe when they're in grade 3 or 4 they will be working at the same level. It's just too soon to tell. I'm more just looking for strategies that can help DD maintain friendships with kids...
I don't think you can read too much into the morning sickness. If you were at a specialist (especially if it was an RE) you're probably feeling a little extra anxious about every little thing, would you say that's true? I had awful m/s with both my pregnancies but I know another twinmom who never felt morning sickness at all. When I was early in the pregnancy I'd visit various twin forums around the interwebs and there were lots of people saying their m/s was gone by...
I didn't go into all the details in my 1st post, but there are a handful of kids who are doing the same things as DD. It's just a small group. And to clarify, she is not in GATE, that doesn't start until 4th grade I think. We just have a great teacher who wants to keep DD more challenged. She is close friends with two girls in this little group, so that part is fine. The main problem, I guess, is that DD's best friend is in her K class but not in this handful of...
My DD is 5 and in Kindergarten (a split grade class), but is doing 1st grade math and reading. She's often pulled out of the K group to do work with the 1st graders or stays after school for enrichment, but that has been causing some problems socially. She's very excited about it and loves doing the more challenging work, but this can make her K friends feel left out when she mentions it. She's finally learned that the best thing is to just not talk to them about it. ...
Congratulations! How exciting. My DD1 was a high needs baby, too (she was 2 when they were born), and that made me extra panicky about twins. I was terrified to relive that experience, but with another infant to care for. As it turned out, neither twin was high needs like DD1, they just brought their own challenges instead. I don't think I could have survived 2 babies at once that were like DD1. I knew odds were against that, but I was still nervous! But chances...
