I like how it looks, the neutral color is pleasant, and the accessories seem nice too. Or does anyone have any recommendations for a good quality, reasonably priced kitchen?
I feel so bad, kids at that age are so ruthless and its so stupid. Lets make fun of you bc you are tall?!? My kid is going to be the big kid, is he going to get teased for that or used to prove how tough some other little s*** head is? Ugh. Makes my stomach turn. And makes me want to teach ds how to throw a good punch.
Idk what my point is. But it's going to be so hard to parent through those years. I'm extra sensitive about that bc my brother was teased a lot in elementary school. Kids suck.
Take the buckle completely off the boba. Snap up the inside of the carrier to make it smaller. To make rethreading the straps easier, I buckled the pieces together before even trying to rethread so I would know what it looked like closed. It should be oriented so that the curve goes with your back so that it will lie flatter against your back. Then run the straps through the buckle so that they are like the ones shown in the picture. I think on ours the "receiving" end of the buckle is on my right side. I hope this helps a little!
I yelled at my son when he was crying in the car while we were on our way to pick up my husband from the bus stop. We were in traffic and I was stressed and he was crying just because he didn't want to be in his seat. That whiney toddler cry that can be so annoying. So after several attempts to help him, I started to yell. I felt really, really bad about it afterwards. :(
So we decided that dh is going to start handling the night wakings. First night and ds is up screaming like a banshee because he wants me. Dh is holding him and rocking him, singing to him so it's not like we abandoned him. But it's seriously causing me physical pain.
I feel awful since I know I can easily fix it. But I also know how I will feel if I let him nurse all night. Dh is adamant that I don't swoop in to nurse him because what's the point of letting him be upset if he's not going to learn to fall asleep with dh? I think he's right. But it's taking all self control to not go in and nurse him. I don't know how people can leave their babies alone to cry. :( I need some support here! Letting them cry with their dad isn't CIO, right?
Anyway, we have been wanting to move home and that was always our intention. I want ds growing up around his cousins and grandparents. So I just interviewed for and was offered a job in a catholic school teaching science to 7th and 8th graders! The school looks wonderful and I really felt at home there, it reminds me
A lot of the catholic school I went to as a kid.
I plan I take it because it gets us home and around our support system. but it is a huge pay cut. It's pretty drastic compared to our current combined income, but dh plans to work too, even if part time again. My parents have said they would help us out too. But I am really nervous. I want to move home so badly but I don't want to be stupid. On the other hand, opportunities that have been dangled in my husband's face have not come to fruition with his current employer so he feels very strongly that he's ready to leave. He is considering going back to school as well to make himself more marketable.
I am just feeling frustrated because we are 32 and 33 and can't seem to live a grown up lifestyle. We have always rented and we have crappy, old, second hand furniture. And we are so educated, I often wonder why we can't seem to make it when we did everything we were supposed to. Ugh. In a way I feel that this move puts us further from getting settled, but its also where I always wanted to be. I am very close with my family and it is important for me
To be nearby. Plus the stress of splitting time at the holidays and whatnot was getting to be too much. And driving home once a month is expensive. We are too far to just come for Sunday dinners but too close to only come home at the holidays.
I guess I am just looking for support, advice, words of wisdom. I am feeling nervous and overwhelmed about moving especially because its so sudden. But also very excited and hopeful.
But is it weird or normal to bf other babies? I can't decide what I think. On the one hand, why not? But on the other I don't think I would want someone else to bf my baby. Is that just because of our uptight American culture? Idk. The marm post got me thinking about it.
Any advice for teeth brushing? Hitting? Tantrums? Spitting water? Throwing food?
When he hits I tell him no hit and put him down or walk away, but then he chases me around like a sad puppy. Sometimes I hold his hands to restrain him. We take the cup away and will end the meal, but it doesn't seem to help. Any advice would be appreciated!!
