We laughed for a good 5 minutes which only encouraged more pouncing and fits of giggles from both little...
Despite being well into my second trimester, I'm still exhausted. I guess I can chalk it up to having 2 kids, one of which is a toddler who doesn't STTN yet, and being 40 years old. I had my iron levels checked and they're good, but I'm considering getting my thyroid checked. I could easily take a nap every single day, but since I work full time I'm lucky if I can get a nap or two on the weekends. Today I splurged and had a lot of coffee and still fell asleep at noon...

I'm torn with this one. I'd love to have the big "It's a ______!" moment, but I'd also love to have a name picked out for sure, maybe...
I don't like clutter and floor messes, but even more I hated the daily battle of having my son's room picked up. So we made a deal that only on Sunday would I have him clean it, and it must be done before dinner. I feel easier about the mess in his room, and he's more prone to clean it well and without whining because it's only once a week. Win win situation.
I'm reviving this old thread to add that I had my amnio the other day, and thought that if I could put myself into hypnosis and numb my uterus then I wouldn't need to purchase the hypnobabies program again. Well, it worked! I didn't feel a thing even though I haven't tried to hypnotize myself in 15 months. I'll purchase the positive affirmations track for 10 bucks off the website to keep healthy during my pregnancy, but I feel totally confident that I can get myself...

It's a private school so the class is small and there are two teachers. We are otherwise thrilled with the school but I do want him to be challenged more, at least in reading. What would you ask for in...
I really like Click magazine, but it is kind of expensive (a friend got it as a gift for our son). It's all about nature which my son really likes.

The panel is made out of a really thin material that can be folded down (without adding bulk) or worn all the way over the belly and it looks like it would fit for all trimesters of pregnancy. Kohl's has similar pants - I love them! I scored today and got two pair for work that were on sale for only $26 each. I also got a dress and 4 tops, all for...

Two days ago we told her all day long that papa would be putting her to sleep and nursies would be gone after the bath. Then we had the usual bath where she got to nurse and I then went away. Papa did pjs...
