As for games, right now our 3yo DS likes Connect Four, bingo (with colors/numbers), and any sort of memory/matching game. He also likes to play with cards and dominoes. We have Chutes and Ladders as well, which seemed like it would be great but is not a favorite.
I was recently doing some reading about visual/spatial learners and your post made me think of this because of how he gave up so easily and was well attuned to your feelings as the teacher. Just thought I'd bring it to your attention in case you think it fits your son. http://www.gifteddevelopment.com/Vis...earner/vsl.htm Whether it does or not, it might help you to realize his learning style and how it differs from yours. To commisserate a bit, I also had an easy...
Unfortunately, Merck announced at the end of last year that they will not be resuming production. https://www.merckvaccines.com/monova...age_102109.pdf
Our son really likes hemp milk the best. It has Omega 3, 6s, calcium, protein, Vit. D, etc. and tastes good. We buy the Living Harvest brand. It's got a little sugar, but is nutritious and we all like it. http://www.worldpantry.com/cgi-bin/n...report#product Here's another page too that talks about all the benefits of hemp milk in general: http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/n...-of-hemp-milk/ We also give him a liquid DHA/Omega 3 supplement from time to time in a smoothie.
My favorite is hummus. DH really likes baba ghanoush with his, or both.
http://www.momlogic.com/2008/07/croc...pregliasco.php Our DS has never had Crocs or similar shoes so far. Last year for summer I found him some sandals at Target that were flexible enough to bend in half, but had hard soles (as compared to the IsaBooties he had for the summer before). They had them with or without covered toes. He's a very busy guy, likes to climb on playground equipment a lot, so needed something with a lot of traction. I kept him in strictly...
We see Dr. Jason Powers at UI North Liberty. He was my doctor for a few years before we started taking DS to him. Midwife Laura is the only other person we've seen there so not sure who to avoid. He's not super crunchy or anything but is nice and respectful of our choices. He's good with our son and has a child of his own that was born within the last few years. He knew all about Fuzzi Bunz and didn't go anywhere near our son's penis. I was pretty excited about...
I was just wondering if we had a 2010 thread and here it is! Thanks. :-)

I say take advantage of it! Kids have different motivations and timeframes and maybe yours will be one that is ready to go now. Our DS started showing interest and telling us when he had just wet around 14/15 months. We turned to late start elimination communication techniques instead of potty training resources. There is a Yahoo! group for this purpose, many of the EC books have late start chapters, and there are several sites with tips for late starters. We started...
