However, you might find that it's kind of BORING for a four-year-old; it takes Sorceror's/Philosopher's Stone a while to get going. My 4yo is indeed bored by it.

Btw, ultrasounds of any kind are not indicated for every pregnancy and should not be routine. Of course, the same can be said of OB care.

I never got to nurse my first son and I haven't felt really comfortable coming into this forum until I had an "older" nursling. Well, DS2 is finally nearly "older." In 14 days he will be 2. He still nurses a lot. In fact, I think he nurses more now than he did when he was an infant. In the mornings, my nipples feel like hamburger because he switches back and forth for what seems like four hours. I don't mind though. I have no problems with the nursing. Sometimes I have...

I have my babies at home and am very comfortable with pregnancy and birth in terms of fear of medical concern, so I'd have no problems going with them, however. On the off chance of something happening to you, a couple of hours should be plenty of time to seek medical care. If you really just don't want to go because you have very...
No, it is not routine. And the MMR shot is not required for college entrance. You should be able to get a waiver, no problem, fyi.

My DH has been a staunch atheist forever, so for him to choose religion would be like the world turning inside out. Especially since he's an academic. It would just be completely bizarre. I...
