I remember you, good luck momma!


Wow, February! My birthday is this Friday and then the superbowl on Sunday, it'll be a fun weekend. We are excited because my DH is from Louisiana, so its a big deal. Go Saints!

As I'm typing, my DH and friends are working on our small 2-story addition (it'll put our living space up to about 1,000 sq ft). Putting in the electrical gear and then start insulating the ceiling and walls. So exciting! Plus, its sunny again!

I'm not sure if it's the dye or bleach or something else, but my dd is irritated from her undies (newly potty trained so this is a new problem). With her clothes, she doesn't have problems, but her undies she does... she has a rash on her cheeks but no where else and it does seem irritating to her but not horribly so... anyhow, does anyone have any suggestions on how to help? Like can I strip them somehow or do something with them to help? Or where can I get some organic cotton ones or something similar? I use 7th gen. detergent and softener and no bleach.

I know I have seen some organic cotton undies somewhere, but don't remember where. Hanna Anderson undies are organic cotton, I think, but they are expensive. Check around on Hyena Cart or Etsy. I know a lot of moms that make diapers also make undies, so maybe somewhere there has organic cotton ones. Or could make you some.



Happy birthday to our February birthday gals. My son and youngest daughter also have birthdays this month.

Try it without the softner. Also, maybe her bum got a bit colder then it is used to. Sometimes we get cold rashes.

Hi everyone! Welcome akcowgirl!

This is kind of a random question, but... For those of you in dry cabins, do you have a camp toilet? I'm not talking about a honey bucket, or one of those pop-up things with a bag, but the kind you sit on, with a holding tank. I've been looking online, but they don't sell them in-store at Sportsman's *or* Wal-Mart (what's up with that...the evil empire strikes again). We need one for the kiddos, so they don't have to potty learn when it's -40 on the outhouse. TMI perhaps... But TIA!

onyx, hope you're enjoying your sweet baby.

icequeen, hoping your mom is doing better. T&P.

Happy Birthday to all you Pisces/Aries gals!

Hmm, you could try Soap Nuts. I've heard they are great for that sort of thing. Or buy her some Hanna Andersson undies.

Any tips on introducing a 1 year old to the snow? He loves going on walks outside as long as he's being worn. But the second I put him down outside he gets scared (even if I'm right next to him and he's warmly dressed). Perhaps it's just too early, but I do want him used to going outside.

Major question for those of us getting older:

If you have gone through, or are going through, menopause or perimenopause, what were your first symptoms?

I don't skip cycles...I'm one of those horror movies chicks who bleeds everywhere for 7 days. In 28 years of having my period, I can honestly say I've NEVER skipped one. They've been late. They've been absent for pregnancy and nursing, but I've never skipped one. (FWIW, I just turned 38 on the last day of Jan).

Now, I haven't had a cycle since my last one started Dec. 19. :/ I'm totally flummoxed.

Going in for a check is a BIG hassle for me, as I'm a very private person and my NMW is very busy and I hate to bother her (and no way would I go to someone else).

SO? Ideas? I took one preg test about two weeks ago, it was neg. My husband laughed because we hadn't had sex since that last cycle. But we have been .... together... since then, and now I'm worried that everything is just out of kilter and if I am pregnant I should have been on prenatals already!

Only other symptoms are persistent weight gain (well, that's my fault, former weight lifter who hardly lifts the pots and pans, yk?), and exhaustion...and other things that could be all in my head like smells overwhelming me and feeling nauseous all the time. And tired.

I know, it sounds like early pregnancy, but I don't know. I'm just wondering what to do if it IS perimenopause, and how to do it without being killed by copays?

love, penelope

If his comfort zone is in your arms, then sling him. Put some snow in your hand and show him it. Make it fun. Let him see you enjoying the snow. Kick it, giggle, throw it in the air.

He'll get used to it in time. It *is* kind of chilly for a new-to-snow person, especially one who is so very small. Trust me, next year, he'll be asking to put on his snow gear before you've rubbed your eyes to get out of bed!

Good luck,

Love, Penelope

we bought one of those camp potty things. I'm pretty sure our first one was bought at Roy's pawn Shop in Delta Junction. We used it in our bus when we traveled a lot.


Walmart should have some but maybe it is a seasonal thing. ???

When DD was little, I brought snow into the house. We lived in St. Louis and it was the first good snow fall. I put the snow in a red tub and gave her spoons and cups. She had a blast. She even put on her rain boots and stepped in it. I have it on tape. She was a little older than one, but it could hurt to try. He can explore it in a warm place.

Spruce--it totally sounds like early preggo to me. I would take another test. I don't have any expereince with the meno side of it, yet.

I posted this elsewhere as well... just looking for insight- see if anyone heard anything?

Last night was the first time I took my kids to see a "REAL" performance.. some of them have seen them because of school field trips, but my littlest had never gone to a show that wasn't put on at my high school. We did a family thing of it, all dressed to the 9's.. I had a maternity dress that was kind of black gauze and little heels.. We checked our coats in at coat check..

the show was going well until after intermission.. then some lights were flashing during the performance.. then some other lights start flashing during the performance and started buzzing.. then we realized the second set of lights were not part of the show- fire alarm. but the dancers kept dancing, the ushers didn't say a word..

My littlest has been through fire alarms at the house, but doesn't know the "rules" of fire alarms as well as the older boys- like no running for example.. we aren't THAT familiar with the Performing Arts Center, and we were on the Mezzanine floor.. I expected I would be taking 3 flights of stairs (the main stairs) to the ground floor..

NOPE.

Exited our row, and found the emergency exit sign.. 5 metal scary flights of stairs down (remember the little heels?) brought us to the basement. The whole way I am helping dp keep the kids together, concentrating on my balance, and trying to move briskly. Did I mention I am quite large at this point?

We cross the basement and find another flight of stairs.. this one going up, and they are outdoor stairs.. concrete and covered in ice. I am really questioning the sanity of this at this point.. and the sun is down so it is COLD.. my dress, of course, gauzy, is sleeveless as well.. my kids have no coats..

Dp dashes into the coat check area (really a few feet into the ground level of the building) but really dumb anyway, and demands our coats.. while we wait, a really nice gentleman offers one of his coats (he had the two layer kind on) while we are huddled together waiting..

When dp finds us, we leave.. I have to walk (snowy sidewalks) about a block up, cross a busy street, 3 blocks down into a parking garage before we can leave.. there were still people huddled outside the center when we left, but some others had decided to go home as well..

It was truly creepy.. the way everyone continued the show reminded me of that scene from Titanic where the band just continues to play.. and the massive flights of stairs made me think just a moment of the Twin towers and people trying to escape down those steps.. (not miminizing the tragedy of the Twin towers, but it felt reminiscent)..

In the end, I felt really bad for the dancers.. they had done a really great performance until that point.. (and it was TapKids, so I am assuming they were young performers but I don't know their ages) I was trying to find an article in the newspaper online about it, but no such luck yet..

Wow Pinoikoi what a scary situation

Thanks for the welcome ladies

Ugg it has been a long week, I hope this next week is better. I hurt my back wednesday morning and have basicly been in bed ever since. I went to the chiro on friday and that made things right again but the muscles were so tired that they have hurt ever since then.

Hears to hoping that everyone has a good week

Spruce, I'm dealing with perimenopause (I'll be 32 on the 1st). Honestly, I'd google the symptoms and see what fits you (if any). Start with perimenopause. There are so many and like everything, not everyone gets everything. For me, my periods were right at 32 days off the pill. Then they started jumping around. The last two months it's been 25 day cycles. The other big one for me is I can't remember sh*t. I can seriously say "DH" and he says "what" and I say "uh......nevermind." Within a few seconds I can't remember what I was going to tell him. It totally ticks me off and is so frustrating.

We're doing a meeting tomorrow for DD to get speech services at Barnette. I'm not thrilled the interim principal will be there but I've been assured she has no say in if it happens or not.

I only know what my mom told me...
she was super regular all her life too. In her late 30s/early 40s she missed a period here and there. At 41 got pg and didnt realize it for 2 m (thought the morning sickness was the flu just hanging on...) After baby a couple of years w/ no AF, then a super heavy one, then nothing for a few months, then super heavy, etc for a couple of years. By 46 I think (maybe 47) she had 12m with no bleeds which is the definition of menopause. She said she didn't have the other symptoms you hear about...maybe she had hot flashes a bit but she's always been about 15 degrees warmer than the rest of the population
Anyway, to me it sounds like perimenopause is very likely what's going on for you. If you've taken a pg test and it's negative, then perimenopause seems the only logical answer. Maybe if you're feeling unsure take another test...but from what I understand a lot of the early preg symptoms are similar to menopause (or PMS) symptoms--after all, they are all caused by high levels of hormones...

Tammy--yeah, it's a seasonal thing. They didn't have them *anywhere*--I called around. So I ended up just buying one online.

Going ok here...I keep sleeping 12+ hours, then I'm still exhausted afterwards. Maybe I have SAD. I've never had it before, so that would be kind of weird.

Can't wait for the Ice Art Championships!!

Alaskaberry: I have SAD and have lived in Ak my whole life. Never had a problem till 2 years ago and it hit me like a ton of bricks. Sleeping a lot, crying all the time, panic attackes you name it. It was a really awful time for me. I got a SAD light from Alaska Northern Lights and upped my Vit D3 intake and it has made all the difference. I am lucky because I had a friend who had a light and saw what was happening and suggested it to me. I probably would have been even worst if she had not seen what was happening because I was just treading water at that point and my DH was working and not around. You might think about a light and possible Vit D3. Good Luck

Thanks, Jenny.

The confusion arises because I took a test when we HAD NOT been DTD at all, so there was no reason to take one. But I know there are women out there who continue to have cycles while pregnant, so I wanted to relieve that worry.

THEN, after the neg test, we were...intimate, and so now I'm concerned about what in the world is going on.

I bought some more tests tonight, although I'm presuming they'll come up neg, anyway.

And so much for sleeping too much...the last few nights I've been awake ALL NIGHT, even w/ sleeping pills. Need me some sleep!

Love, p

Yukon Quest, Mile 101 Checkpoint!

My blog post with pictures are up. I didn't put any start pictures up as they are still on the camera I had to borrow from Jan for the start. Anyways, this is a new blog so I am hoping to get lots of traffic. Also, if anyone knows how to make that side bar smaller, I'd appriciate a hint.
