  1. New Member Introductions
    Hi, I'm a new one here and would like to introduce myself to the community. I'm dating a wonderful man and hoping to become a mom soon. I'm sort of familiar with motherhood as I did baby sitting in college to make some extra money, and currently I'm a paralegal at DeToffol & Associates, NYC...
  2. Special Needs Parenting
    Honestly, I`m not sure if this is the right place to post. Please, move if needed. I don`t know where to turn with my 8-year-old son`s issues. Some background.

  6. Parenting
    A family member picked up my younger daughter (4) yesterday to do something fun with her. I thought that sounded fine, and the older one was busy and the younger one was looking for something to do, so I sent them off together.<br><br> Last night, my daughter puked up what looked to me like a...
  7. Life with a Toddler
    My 3 year old has been having some really rough nights this week. Last night, in the midst of a 2 hour wake-up, she mentioned that her ankles hurt. Today she kept rubbing behind her knees and complaining of pain there, and in her wrists. It occurred to me that she's probably having growing...
