ROTFLMAO!!!! : Put me and little bear firmly in the dog food club. I just don't understand - it's lamb and rice! Lamb is so smelly and strong you think he'd hate it, but noooooo - he loves the stuff. I have tried to distract him with human crackers, but am not always successful. He also likes the dog treats, including rawhide. I just gave up giving them to the poor dog because if she didn't finish them at one sitting, he did! And don't *even* ask me about...
One more suggestion (and a vent, sorry): I abhor the commercialism of the holiday season. I also have a very small flat and absolutely no more room for toys. Therefore I have asked all of my relatives *who want to* (no obligation) to get DS a gift to bring him a BOX. Yes, a box. He could give a hoot about the innards - he just loves boxes. He goes nuts when we get them delivered - he knows he gets a new toy. I'm hoping that my relatives try to out-do each other...

When Baby Bear brings home *whom ever* he brings home, help me to see the good in them that he sees. Help me to accept them. And please bless me that I may love this person as my sweet...
I've been following this thread and just thought I'd jump into the discussion. Soul-O, I am rooting for you. If "W" is as good a guy as he seems, this will be further indication of it. He will understand your cautiousness. Seasons, it took me over a year to feel something even vaguely like sexual desire again. I dated a few guys, even one like Fella, except he was another single parent. He was nice and all, but.... Don't disregard that "but" because it's a big...
Holland: I mostly lurk here, but have followed your story and am happy for you. Welcome back to the US! You are right that a lot of unsolicited advice is offered here. I usually just nod and ignore them. Someday, when we meet in person, I'll tell you the shoe story, LOL. And a general note to all: I am in the SF Bay Area would love to meet other moms from this board. Heck, I'll even "put my money where my mouth is" and volunteer my local park for a...
Even before DS was born, we handed out stickers and small favors from the party store. About the same price as candy, but if I didn't use all of whatever I bought, it lasted until next year. The el-cheapo glow-in-the-dark spider rings were a big hit, BTW. I never worried too much about choking hazards because most of our trick-or-treaters were a little older. Also, I am still toying with not taking DS out trick or treating because he is still so young (20 months). ...
Oh, I tried the wash cloth (and barely escaped with my fingers intact!) and the manual toothbrush and the headlock and all the things suggested here. The only thing that has worked consistently is the battery-powered spin brush and, get this, choo-choo sounds. Hey, it's in the privacy of my own home, so no one knows what a lunatic I *really* am, except DS. But he figured that out a long time ago, anyway...
OK, my turn. Robert had a photo session for holiday photos on Sunday. Forgot to bring toys for him to "model" with, so I whipped out my cell phone. The proofs were emailed to me yesterday. Man, did we get some pics! My favorite is one of him with this come-hither look on his face with the phone in his hand. Sprint should sign this kid up to do commercials!!!!
Freebird, your ex and mine were separated at birth! Cordial and business-like is as good as it gets. Oh, and get this: A few months ago, when things were quite hostile, he said, "Can't you just treat me like a client?". So now when he doesn't do something he should or is irresponsible (DS came home one day with slivers in *both* feet) I point out what has gone wrong and what I expect. I throw his own words back at him because as a project manager, I have to point...
L.J., I think you ex and mine were seperated at birth, LOL. I refuse to let him have overnights with ds because 1) ds is breastfeeding, 2)his house is very unsafe - no childproofing at all, not even a gate for the stairs, 3)he has over night guests of questionable nature ("oh, I didn't let them drive home because they were drunk" HUH? Why did you get so wasted to begin with????); and (the kicker) 4) he has NO WHERE for ds to sleep. No crib, no bed, no nothing. And he is...
