Thank you so much everyone for the support about Maya's sleepless night the other night. It WAS teething. Three months and eight days after her first bottom two errupted, she *finally* has her right top barely poking through as of this morning. After so many weeks/months of thinking it was close, I didn't want to believe it. Will it really be this tough EVERY time she gets a new one?YoBecca
, so glad to hear that Robin is starting to get back to normal, and I love the mental image of her dragging her teacher all over her class! Jilly
, I really enjoyed reading your post about feminism, and meant to reply sooner -- but now, my comments have pretty much been said already! The main thing I kept thinking as I read it was CHOICE. Yes, I'm doing the WAHM thing, and making a considerable amount less than I could doing another job...but it's my choice to do so. If it were a financial option, I'd CHOOSE to be a SAHM solely in a heartbeat, but since I'm single...and haven't won the lottery... Anyhoo, keep writing!
I'm still pondering my CD options while I work my way through the last of my current box of Huggies Supreme diapers.
: At this point, I'd like to give prefolds and covers a shot. While I've heard good things about Bummis SWW, does anyone have comments on how well/not they fit slim babies? Also, any ideas on where would be a best bet to pick up my stash? I think I'm nearing (finally) my 50 posts to brows the TP, but not quite.
Happy birthday to all of the little ones celebrating this week. Still vaguely in denial here, but that didn't stop me from spending a nice chunk at Target in anticipation of Friday. So far, no electronics, and I'd like to keep it that way. My daughter really liked a Parents Magazine activity cube (here
, she pushed it over...oops) that my friend in Seattle had, so I got the current version. Also picked up some wooden musical instruments that are oddly marked age 3+ -- even though I can't for the life of me imagine why, other than the company covering its backside. She's also getting the "Baby Wordsworth" video by Baby Einstein, just because several other moms I know have reported that their kiddos *loved* it -- besides, I like Marlee Matlin. :grinWhat sorts of goodies are you all giving your little ones for their birthdays?
It's so weird knowing that this may be the only baby I ever have...and that she's almost not a baby anymore! Ack!!!
