My midwife believes my due date is august 2. so i'm off to sign up for the august ddc. have fun, july mamas!
How much does your LO fuss at night when they've got a runny nose? DH and I disagree on what's normal. DD (28 months) whines and cries a lot when a runny nose and postnasal drip keep her awake. It's so frustrating for her, and she can't figure out how to blow her nose, or how to just try and breathe through her mouth. DH thinks we are doing something wrong because DD "thinks it's okay to whine and cry for hours at night." My guess is that CIO kids have to learn...
I wait tables, and I've told pretty much everyone at work, even though it's really early. There's a lot of heavy lifting involved in the job (carrying tables, racks of classes, heavy pans of dishes) that I shouldn't really be doing, and I've just been so tired that I'm moving slow. So I figure I'd rather tell my coworkers (and have their support and love if it doesn't work out), than have them wondering why I'm such a slacker.

Thanks for the ideas!

Yes, she is very verbal, so we've had lots of...
Cool, we will check these out! Thanks.

Maybe do that as a midpoint between telling her it's time and having her be totally in charge? Actually, we have been doing that. Her answer is always "no", so far. We're going to keep trying for a little while. Also, a friend suggested keeping her nakey-bum at home, so it's easy for...
We love our Dan Zanes albums and the Barenaked Ladies kids' album and They Might Be Giants kids' album. Anyone know of other kids' music that is musically interesting and also humorous for the adults who are also listening?
I don't love the idea of leaving DD in a wet diaper through the night, so we always use wool covers at night because it's breathable. So far, she has never gotten a rash from a wet night dipe.
