I agree with you!  If there aren't any problems, there's no need to create any.  The more cooked your babies are, the better it will be.  If your gut tells you to go to 39, do it.  If you go into...

I've had to do something similar to what Shuli posted with my 'needier' girl.  It worked.  Now things are more even with both kids and I don't feel bad for 'neglecting' the 'easier' one.  They do...

That was one of his gifts to you.  To feel guilty doesn't do either of you any good.  Talk to him about how you feel.  I'm serious.  Get a photo of him, take 20 minutes when you have alone time, and...

Yup.  yup. yup.  Whoever coined the term 'terrible twos' never had a three year old - or,  better yet, two of them at once!  The twos were fun and funny.  The threes can be so infuriating!  They...

We used the same method at about 14-15 months.  They were already in their own beds in their own room together, so DH and I would either one or both go in and comfort them.  It really was a two...
