Welcome to our brand new shiny thread, everyone!

I hope everyone is able to find their way over here. I'm actually surprised at how long it took for us to get "busted" for our super-long thread

Can I please add Parenting for a Peaceful World by Robin Grille to the list. It's a chunky ready and quite dense at times but really, really fantastic. Actually, add his other book - Heart to Heart Parenting, too. It's more parenting 'guide' than the other which is more anthropological/philosophical/sociological.

Sebby is in the middle of something big. He's getting harder and harder to get to sleep. Last night it was 11.30 and then he was awake at 5 for the day. When I tried to get him back to sleep, I copped a massive kick in the mouth and he broke one of my teeth (It was weak and waiting for a root canal.) It was a bit of a disaster. Me screaming, him screaming, me sobbing, him sobbing. I feel so awful for making him feel so bad.

Any ideas what this might be? He's walking really well now, his language is average, his fine and gross motor skills are way above average, his 1 yr molars are through - a growth spurt perhaps? Or maybe he heard our murmurs about nightweaning in a month or two? Or perhaps he heard us talk to our donor about TTC #2.

Rico'sAlice [B] - I have tried to respond to your really thoughtful post about a million times. It has really got me thinking and watching and observing (and trying really hard not to be judgemental). In my attempts not to judge, I do wonder if those of us who are attracted to AP parenting styles tend on the side of super sensitive, more outwardly sentimental, bond forming types. I know that I get close to people easily and form really strong attachments. I'm also a sentimental sop at times. I really hate the thought that non AP'ers may not be as bonded to their children but perhaps it's just that they're expressive in other ways? I haven't got it in me to try and elaborate on what I mean - but do others know what I'm trying to say?

37 weeks Christina! I'm excited for you.

Solidarity to PiePie on the sleep stuff. I'm with you sister!

Shanna
. Yay you for being a perceptive Mama. I hope it gets a bit easier now.

I have everything crossed for the TTC'ers. I can't wait to join your ranks - though for your sake, I hope you've graduated by then.

More to say but the micro-napping kiddo is awake xx

yes.

i tested today. i felt pregnant and didn't want to be building false hopes if i wasn't. i'm not. dh is pissed. i am, i don't know, in shock? bereft? lost. and hideously late for work.
post #20 of 607
why id DH pissed? i thought he wasn't sure if he wanted the family to move forward in that way. . .or am i lost?

anyway, in our news, ryan is not a finalist in the contest, but we learned he did really well anyway. on each judges short list, but they can to come to consensus on the final 4 (since 5 was chosen by popular vote). it was good to know that he did well. he's like that in a lot of contests--top 5%, but not a winner. he's disappointed.

but, on the up side, we are going to NZ anyway! our visa officer is going to give us a "full assessment" on tuesday (monday our time). we have set up to talk about this over the phone because the emails are strange. the tone is very tone-less, which you could read as curt, or just direct, or simple informational. we're thinking it's direct and informational, rather than curt or upset with us about our visa.

so, we are making plans to talk with her on monday our time (tuesday hers), where we will find that what we need to do to get the visa (if there's anything left to do--she just asked us for 3 yrs back taxes and a letter from our accountant demonstrating that i'd been in business for X years), and if there is or isn't, what the timeline is for receiving the visa.

then, we go to NZ right away. I have to go by next sunday, or i have to go into philadelphia to get my passport renewed. it dies in Feb! ok, technically end of feb, but nevertheless, i don't want to send it away now, and i can't get the emergency pass port (one day) unless we have a travel date that is specific. i know, i tried. LOL

so, that's what is going on here. we will be finished packing today, and ready to go. can't wait to be there!
