Should be 39" tall for the gcdc. That's what we were told.
You do want it as snug as comfortably possible, but loose enough to work, iykwim.

We have work balance issues here too; funny thing is, I technically make more than DH but we bring home about the same, since I have health insurance and crap taken out of mine.

It's the housework and stuff I need more help with once I return to work. *sigh*

Sometimes I wonder how many lurkers our threads have.  LOL!

Ok I had trouble snapping a decent pic that showed how tightly he was on there.  This is the best I got!

 

 

 

 

Huge successes with potty today!  I have hope!  He's getting it (and I'm so happy to have found zen with this process b/c it's such a huge milestone) and we are having fun.  

 

Chris's plane landed!  He shoudl be home soon, I have no idea how he's getting home.  Either his Dad or he'll take the train.  Can't wait!  I really missed him this time -- at least the last 2 days.  winky.gif

honestly what made me think of lurkers was how high we are on the parenting forum page. I forget how visible we are!!

I've thought that before too Baby_Cakes. The number of views is nowhere close to the number of replies each month. I've considered suggesting we move to a private group on FB but I know some of us prefer MDC format.

There's still always a private group on here.

I find FB easier than here. But I'm cool either way.

Carrie: hooray for potty training! I want to introduce the potty with Norah, but need a new seat; Gabe isn't willing to share and still uses his sometimes.

The GCDC was a blast. I'm hoping next year I only have one baby to change.

Is that different than the social groups? I was just researching this some and it seems like even if we create a closed social group, the content is still visible. "All content in all Social Groups is visible to the public, but only group members may contribute content and participate. For example, only members of the "Minnesota Natural Birthers" group can post in the "Minnesota Natural Birthers" group forum or upload photos to its gallery." I think if we want to take things "offline", we really need to consider a closed or secret group on FB.

Oh, ok. I didn't remember all the details.

We can try a private FB group and keep this one going for now. I find it difficult to follow conversations on FB, though. Things get broken up and posts get missed, especially if the convo gets really long. It seems to me we'd have to start a new conversation for every subject to avoid that and things would get pretty confusing, for me, anyway.

I would prefer a private Yahoo group for something like that. I find it a lot easier to follow ongoing conversations and check on new ones on there.

That's so funny because yahoo groups make me want to poke my eyes out. I love my FB groups though. Alright so I created a FB group for us to try out. We'll see how this goes.
