I'm still looking Devon. I've looked on the internet and not turned up anything close to home. I finally found one other mom to share experiences with through a neighbor's church, and that's really...

Personality can be a greater indicator of success than smarts alone. This seems like something she REALLY, with your guidance, needs help with. On a good note, one would assume her self-esteem is in...

Since these were taken, we've taken out the blue rug and put down those interlocking foam-rubber tiles meant for flooring in home gyms. I REALLY think this flooring is the way to go for a hard-wood...

Oh, and forgot to mention - when in the bath FREAKS OUT when he has to pee and I bring the potty to him. He'll pee in his pants or bed all day long, but heaven forbid he go in the bath water.
