Gigi, I hope you and dd feel better soon.
Plady, the canoeing sounds like fun!
Nancy, glad you're doggie is better.
Mothercat-I've also been hit or miss with yoga teachers. My favorite was my prenatal teacher, but that's all she teaches. I'm tempted to swipe one of those stuffed bellies from Motherhood Maternity and wear it just to take her classes.
Helmets-I think most kids around here wear them. Mine don't gripe about it, thankfully.
My similar peeve is that fact that people around here take their kids out of booster seats WAY too early. Both of my older girls are in boosters and will be until they are 4'9". None of the 8 year old's friends are in them and very few of the 6 year old's are.
L (8) gets so angry when they go on Brownie trips, etc. and I send her seat. She's right that she's the only one, and I do feel for her, but this is one of those situations where I will not compromise, yk?
RR (sort of): Zumba done today. It was great!
