My 24 month old doesn't really call them anything.  She just says "nurse."  However, if I'm taking too long to nurse her, she's happily (and loudly) ask, "Where are you pink?  There it is!"  It...

I suppose that I shouldn't say my son's school disagrees with his diagnoses - it's the school counselor.  She based the results after having my son's teacher fill out a questionnaire.

I don't really buy fast food anymore.  The ones near me really kind of suck.  However, I do love getting those precooked rotisserie chickens from the grocery store.  I keep disposable utensils and...

If I'm able, I'll take a hot shower using soaps scented with essential oils (Purple Prairie Botanicals are my favorite.)  I also love to burn incense and play music.  I also enjoy yoga, but I don't...

I haven't read this entire thread, but I cannot believe what happened to your poor daughter.  The fact that the school didn't even let you know is so disgusting that there aren't even words for it. ...

I liked using GMD prefolds and flats and using traditional folds with pins.  GMD prefolds are extremely easy to fold because of their cut.  The trifold just never worked well for me in the...
