Can't write a long reply right now, but just wanted to lend some support. It is a weird world, this SAHM thing. It's both always and never your own time, and it just can not be looked at the way...

Ski day sounds great, fortuneteller! Especially the post-skiing coziness.

Lost my post yesterday. Friday was the day of my great aunt's funeral, so mostly just a day of logistics - getting Bean...

We do something similar with friends of ours. One friend hosts a party for all of us (last time was 4 families). The kiddos all stayed and played all day while all the adults took 2 hour shifts...

When was the last time you read "Beezus and Ramona"? My 4 year old loves it, and I love hearing Beezus' perspective on 4 year olds!

I checked too and didn't find anything. I'm surprised the materials aren't more available used. We don't actually homeschool, but I really liked the Enki ideology for my not-yet-in-school kiddo and...

Does the hardness change at all after nursing? Have you tried massaging quite hard? Any fever? I had clogged ducts a few months ago that turned into an abscess and it was horrible to deal with. If...

I just wanted to chime in on the age difference front. I think sassy 4 year old is totally redundant! We are in the throes of 4 and it is an age full of defiance and power struggle, very different...

Perhaps I have no business saying anything as I don't have a teen yet, but it really does sound just like how my 4 year old acts when she has an unmet need that she can't or won't tell me about and...

Something with boneless chicken breasts and baby bok choy. I'm thinking either stir fry or noodle soup, probably the latter.

Kitchensqueen, I couldn't agree more about the evening reset. I can't do it right now due to the baby, and it drives me nuts to have things messy in the morning. I've always said that a perfect...

Didn't actually answer you! I think a distinctly different suck is better for a pacifier. They will likely not prefer it because there's no milk involved.

I agree with the PP who said they know the difference. My DD likes to sleep exclusively while sucking, but will accept a pacifier for part of her nap, or while out and about. We started at about 3...

I'm guessing he means to start adding more texture rather than just purees. You could look at some of the "stage 3" baby foods at the store to get ideas, but you can probably just adapt your regular...

Leftovers tonight - a bit each of pot roast and corned beef, rutabaga puree, and a truly disgusting salad of kale, red cabbage and carrot. Major recipe failure there.
