Thanks mamas!!!! M. just came, thanks goodness. They are having fun now. My cake was awful, though, but who cares
The neighbour's girl was here every day for the last week, for hours at a time. My DD loved it, so it was fine with me, no problems. Today is DD's birthday. Yes, she invited the girl--only one kid guest (and two adults who'll be coming later). And when I talked to the girl's mother, I said, "Sure, M. can come any time! We are not having a party, it is all very informal, DD just wants to spend time with your daughter on her birthday, and we will have cake." Naturally I...

That eliminated the need for someone to be left alone. I balanced it somewhere half-way between each dd's bedtime, and we all crawled into my bed. It made bedtime without daddy more fun. We watched tv or read books til the youngest fell asleep. The oldest would eventually fall asleep. They were 4 & 8...

Honestly though, if she gets plenty of your attention at other times, whining in the bedroom while you are trying to get others to sleep would probably result in a non-negotiable request to go somewhere else, regardless of her response. i AM "single...

Maybe bundle up for an early morning walk or eat breakfast in bed anything that switches the energy of your morning. If you have to do school or other obligations I might try to get up and ready before her so you are able to be with her as she transitions into the day. One...

I let lo eat everything, even yogurt, by herself. ...
i started solids at about 10 months. initally her poops were normal and formed, once every 2-3 days. in the last week they smell sour, are soft, and 3-4 times a day. i think this happened after she ate half an avocado...but they never went back to normal. i didnt have a careful food diary. i think she could've been exposed to dairy / wheat...just because of her siblings...but i didn't feed her any of this does this sound like an allergy to something? at this point, can...
DD 6, doesn't like (i.e. hates) to be by herself (actually, not always. if she decides she need to do something on her own, she's fine. but when she needs to be by herself because otherwise she's disturbing the family, she hates it, even if i'm absolutely reasonable and being by herself is not a punishment). She also gets frustrated with rules/ limitations of a "common area". Like in "You CAN go and work on your project while i'm reading to DS and DD2 at bedtime, but...
Yesterday we had a sort of imposed playdate--a new friend came over with her 8 year old to make sushi. The girl, S., was a bit shy, and acted a touch disrespectful--she declared our house was weird, sleeping on the floor was weird, we had too many wooden toys, we didn't have spiderman movies and what we had was boring, et etc. DD, who's 6 and VERY sensitive, got rather upset, but I reminded her about everyone being different etc Later DD came downstairs to tell me that...
