I agree that the homeopathy is VERY safe. Whether or not it works for Brynn will be determined probably by her personal chemistry. Isa LOVES the tablets. I think they really work for her. The Calms Forte for kids is great when she hasn't napped all day and it is too late for a nap (ie: too close to bedtime). They calm her without making her drowsy or "drugged up". The teething tablets are also wonderful. When she starts to get a tooth, I wait to give them too her until she asks. And she usually does ask when her teeth start really bothering her.
And I agree completely with Spughy
that a lavender pillow is a great idea. I've made one for each member of our family. I stuff it with flax seed (so it's kinda heavy and really supportive for your neck/head. I also add a bit of lavender for inducing relaxation. If you want, I'd be ever so happy to make you one for Brynn or send you my rough pattern so you can sew one yourself. PM me for details if you want.
And I loved this and couldn't agree more:

Jason and I have so much fun with Ella, for example, because she is SO giggly and cuddly (very unlike Brynn); she actually cuddles with me more than my own child does! Every child is just wonderful, I think.
, I agree completely that traditional education focuses too narrowly on what talents/ gifts/ skills are valuable. If the talents/ gifts/ skills are so valuable, why are so many VERY educated people out of work? And why are skilled professionals (hairdressers, auto mechanics, plumbers, etc...) living so abundantly? Many of those skilled professionals did not do very well in traditional school, but are very successful in life. Kinda makes you think, huh? Go Unschoolers!Susannah

I'm glad you and Finley had such a great time in the pool! How wonderful for you!
Isa is definitely a swimmer. She loves to be in the water... maybe because she was born in water? I think I'm going to get her one of those really silly-looking flotation suits. We went to a family gathering today and my aunt had just had a pool installed. It's a salt water pool (no chlorine
) and they had one of those suits laying around so we tried it. Isa felt much more secure in it than just with a loose tube or arm floaties. I wish I could have got in the pool with her, but I just had my tattoo worked on on Saturday!!!Here's some long awaited pics
... (keep in mind that I have one more session to finish up the green in the hair and retouch the white stars on the magic breast and milk on the nursing breast).
Have a happy week, everyone!
