Courtney ... What a gorgeous belly you have! I can't believe that you're so close. The girls' school sounds wonderful. Does it have a specific approach? Waldorf, etc?
Mal ... Sounds like you've put a lot of thought into the charts. I'm interested to hear how it goes. We've never done any reward system, mostly because I get lazy about follow through. I like that they'd know when their screen time is used up. E is always wanting to know if she can watch something and the answer is usually no. I wonder if it'd be better to give her control? Let her decide when to watch one show a day... So she's not always guessing. But I want her to not obsess, so I'm not sure what the best approach is.
Sue ... From everything you've ever said about F, I doubt that garlic is the main culprit. I really hope you figure it out soon! I can't wait for you to move south!
Ever ... R sounds so very normal to me in all your posts. My diagnosis? You're parenting a three-year-old! Hang in there, mama. I know that you're a gifted mother.
AFM: I signed E up for gymnastics, which is quite a coup! It's a popular, affordable program at the community centre and we lined up early and got the second to last spot. It starts in April, and E is very excited. H is a rolling machine ... He rolled right off of the couch this morning while I reached for a diaper. Bad mama moment. : (.
He and E absolutely adore each other and are really loving making each other laugh and smile. I love it!
I think dp and E are going to The Lorax this week, and then next week E and my mom are going to a play about "Frog & Toad" ... From the books, which are some of her favorites.
Easter: Hadn't thought about it. We might skip it one more year? Or maybe we'll do an egg hunt. E would like that. Thanks for reminding me!
