  • I do heavy cleaning when I'm angry. If my husband and I have a disagreement about something, it results in sparkling kitchen or bathroom. LOL.
  • http://out-of-sync-child.com/ And if you can afford to buy the book, it was the best money I ever spent. I'm going to be purchasing some of the other ones, too, because it was a really enlightening read. I felt like I finally understood my kid after reading it. If you're dealing with tantrums, something I noticed that…
  • You're welcome - it's HARD to be the mom of a child who is special needs - regardless of what those needs are. Being different is hard - and it's really easy to feel alienated when your child isn't doing something that all the other kids are doing. You have that moment of "why me" and feel guilty for it, because it could…
  • My best advice as someone who KNEW something was off with my child, but was brushed off by our pediatrician is to get another opinion. You're mom, and you know best - if your gut is saying something is up, then pursue it. My son throws horrendous tantrums (and has hurt himself numerous times - it's awful, isn't it? Knowing…
  • I was thinking too, and your speech therapist might be doing something like this, but visuals were really helpful for my son (and my daughter, who had problems with her speech). We'd laminate pictures of things and put velcro on the backs, then we had a board where they could choose what they wanted. We had a picture of…
  • My son was diagnosed at 14 months. Typically, they don't diagnose that early, but my step-son is also on the spectrum and because my son has a half sibling with ASD, they were able to diagnose him that early. Most places don't give a formal diagnosis until 2 or 3, I believe. My son just turned 3 last week, and is a…
  • They have coupon books at Wendy's for a free frosty that I always loved getting when I trick or treated. They're not very expensive to buy, either, and no temptation because it's just paper.
  • Thank you -the duffel bag is brilliant!
  • It's generally recommended (I know that Dr. Sears recommends this as well) that it's no milk until age 1 for allergies, then whole milk until age 2, then non-fat or low-fat milk after age 2. That said, my son is casein-intolerant, which means he is allergic to the milk protein, not just lactose intolerant. He is NOT…
  • We talked about marriage pretty much immediately - 2 months in, he gave me a "promise ring" (which I thought was silly, but he said it was a place holder until he bought me something better... and he did). On our 1 year, he proposed for real, and then 7 months later, we got married. January will be 6 years since we got…
  • I've seen it mentioned here a lot, but I also frequently get, "you look fantastic for having two kids!" If people would leave off the "for having two kids" and just say "you look fantastic," maybe I'd consider it a real compliment. As it is, it kind of hurts my feelings. Maybe I'm too sensitive. Lol. I had lost 30 pounds…
  • Amazing transformations - you should all be extremely proud of yourselves!
  • Bump for later
  • I make them try one bite of everything. If they don't like it, that's fine - I always make at least ONE thing that they do like, and they can have seconds of that. They're also given the option that they can have a piece of fruit, too. I also let them choose what we're having in terms of if we're having pasta - they can…
  • Chili-Spiced Mango. Oh em gee.
  • As someone who raw-feeds, I can't help but be amused by the fact that others consider eating raw meat weird. That's what we consider "normal." Lol.
  • You say "interesting," I say, "festive!"
  • My dog will chew any kind of paper (24 roll of toilet paper got turned into confetti), or wood (colored pencils, my kids wooden toys - once, the corner of my wooden coffee table) but doesn't eat anything out of the ordinary, fortunately. Playdoh, once... which made the landmines easier to spot.
  • I was a pack a day, and quit for 6 months, using a V2 ecigarette. I didn't have any cravings that the ecig couldn't help, and after a month or so, even the hand-to-mouth thing decreased and I only used the ecig when I'd be most likely to feel like I NEEDED a cigarette (driving long distances, or after a meal, or if I had…
  • I'm sitting here in a t-shirt that my artist gave me that says "Tattoo saves your soul," so I'm probably not one to ask. However, having had a tattoo that I didn't love covered up, I will say that you should take the time to think about what you want - if you want to get it, it's one thing. Choosing what you get is…
  • Bumping this for later. I pack my husband and daughter a plain wrap, with hummus and a bunch of veggies (lettuce, tomato, onion green peppers, cucumbers, sprouts, carrots, celery, whatever i have on hand) and some ranch . Then, they have the option of having a hummus and veggie wrap, or a veggie wrap with ranch, and then…
  • This might be helpful: HOW TO RATE YOUR DOG'S FOOD (some brands are already rated at the end) Start with 100 points. 1. For every listing of "by-product," subtract 10 points. 2. For every nonspecific animal source ("meat" or "poultry," meat, meal, or fat) reference, subtract 10 points. 3. If the food contains BHA, BHT, or…
  • We raw-feed, but prior to that, we used Kirkland's signature brand, which is highly rated and affordable.
  • What Women Want D*ck Cheaper By The Dozen Batteries Not Included The Firm Cool Hand Luke Private Parts There Will Be Blood I'm getting the giggles thinking about these...
  • I like vinegar best - balsamic is my favorite, as well as red wine, and apple cider with a little splenda (or sugar) and salt and pepper goes really well over spinach and strawberries (my summer favorite).
  • I'm a pescetarian for 14 years now - that's basically a way of saying that I'm not "quite" vegetarian, because I do eat fish and shellfish, where a vegetarian obviously does not. Truthfully, that came about because while I do love seafood and would be willing to give it up, I'm finding myself severely limited when eating…
  • I've never heard of anyone leaving the skin on it. I cut each end off with a knife, put a spoon in it and scoop it out - it peels itself that way, no mess, and really quick.
  • I'm sorry you're having a bad day. I'm having a crappy couple of days, myself. However, the drunk chicken story has me ROLLING. If you have time to watch funny videos, anything by Jenna Marbles usually makes me laugh, but "the face" is probably my go-to favorite. I can't look at her and not crack up.…
  • Placement-wise, definitely not for me. I know that when I gain weight, that's the first area where it goes (below the belly button) and I'd be afraid that if I went up or down in my weight, it would start to look weird. If I wanted a private area for a tattoo, I'd be more inclined to go for the ribs, as I don't wear…
