I've never really felt like a bad mother for letting my kids use the pacifier. I wish I could be there for them to chew on 24/7, but truth of the matter is, I have a 2 year old I have to play with, food to get prepared and eat, I like to bathe, sometimes I even like to surf on the net and our set up is really hard for me to do so with babe on boob. This little guy will take a susi from time to time, my older boy wanted to suck 24/7 and at about 3 months we introduced the...
I wouldn't let her stay over if I wasn't completely comfortable with all the people she'd be staying with. So I don't think you're being overprotective. However it is your mother's and brother's house and while you don't have to bring her over to stay over, I don't think you should ask your brother and his guest to leave so she could.
Just in the driveway, anywhere else where I'm not a few steps away from the car (like pumping gas, or dropping a video off in the slot) and it's in my full view is a no go. It's not convenient, but who ever said kids were convenient. lol
My guy loves all sorts of music. From Raffi to Queen. I think it's important to expose them to many types, things that might be simple enough for them to learn to things not so simple that they'll pick up anyways.

You cam here posting about junkfood, but then opened up about many other issues. The junk in itself doesn't sound too harmful if it's once in...
Just don't cut it too short, the texture of the curl may change. I'm also told that some kids only have curly hair until their first haircut...not too sure of the validity of that. My son has curly hair, my husband cut it really short recently and it's ticked me off to no end, so I'm growing it back out so he can just have his usual trim.
I'm interracial, born and raised in downtown Toronto. I actually grew up in an inner city community, which was very racially, culturally diverse (most of toronto is pretty diverse, but this was even moreso). However it was all pretty much under the poverty line, so the thing we all had in common was no money. 30 years ago in Toronto, I spent about the first 4 years of my life in Scarborough (a suburb) and I never saw another interracial child until I moved downtown. I...
One, if hubby is there, ideally you should be able to trust him to enforce your rules. If not, then you need to figure that out with him. Is there a way to compromise? My mom loves to bring sweeties for my son, as does my FIL. It's not a huge deal here as it's not candy or something with a lot of additives. They just like to give him the treat as they know, us as parents pretty much don't give him anything sweet that isn't homemade. But can you sit down with the...
I usually say "two and change". He's 28 months old too. However he's talking up a blue streak so people usually think he's older.
My hair is fairly curly, I take care not to wash it too often, a few times a week, so it doesn't dry out. I do wet it every day to style it. I use leave in conditioner, and for the most part for convenience, I put it in a ponytail. I also sleep with a high ponytail on my head so I'm not smashing the hair. Never brush the hair dry, in fact try to use a wide toothed comb. My hair was a disaster until I found a hairstylist here who specialised in curly hair and developed...
