Re: Downton Abbey

recently I'd begun hoping she and Tom would get together. I thought the two had some chemistry. Glad it wasn't just me! All the time together and sly little smiles got me wishing and hoping and thinking. I guess it was plainly obvious to everyone except Julian Fellowes. Really? I didn't see that, a...

Re: Downton Abbey

Somehow I don't see Gregson coming back. I think Bertie will come back though. The way the finale ended, with Edith in the final scene, I think was setting things up for an Edith-based special. After all, there's nothing left for Mary now. Speaking of Mary, the whole Talbot thing left a lot to be de...

Re: Downton Abbey

It just finished in the UK (the final season, I mean). The last ever episode will be the Christmas special.

Re: Car seat help

Well, our carseat has bitten the dust. N is 40 months, over 40 inches, and just over 35 pounds. Is it okay to go to the next stage of carseat even though he's under 4 years old, and under 40 pounds?

Gate in room

Have you ever used a gate at the entrance to your child's room? We just switched N from a crib to a toddler bed (waited until he actually asked to be moved), but now I'm a bit concerned with all this new-found freedom he has, and I'm afraid he might want to roam around the house instead of going dow...

At the moment we have this: http://www.maxi-cosi.com/car-seats/tobi.aspx.. However, N's head sticks out at the top. He's only 35 pounds. Should we still switch to something else?

Re: Calling Pancake and Munchkin

I think my problem stems from the fact that I don't really give N sweets. He has a biscuit or two every day, maybe pancakes on some mornings, but he's never had chocolate/ice-cream/etc. And now that he's 2.5, he's learned not to be enticed by those things so it's hard to bribe him with them.

Re: Calling Pancake and Munchkin

JGator, somebody else with a younger child than N was also surprised that N doesn't get bribery. Maybe it's that we haven't really used it so he hasn't caught onto it yet.

Mayerling, I know this sounds horrible, but our son is difficult to give meds to as well. We basically have to hold him down to give it to him. My husband hold his arms, & I use a syringe to just inject it towards the side and back of his mouth. It's hard, but it needs to be done. good luck! We...

B just had the flu and was on Tamiflu, aka the worst tasting stuff ever. It was a capsule and we were told to break it open and mix it with food. We tried everything. The only thing that sort of worked was giving him a piece of chocolate to hold, and letting him eat it as soon as the medicine was i...

That requires multiple injections, though, and our pedi refuses to do that. Maybe we need another pedi. :think:

Hi ladies, I need your help again. N will NOT take medicine orally. We've tried syringes, spoons, mixing it in liquids, mixing it in food. Nothing works.

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

N turned 2.5 last week. He's still not potty-trained, he's still using a paci at naps and bedtime, he's still in his crib. I hope to tackle potty-training this spring-summer. I have no intention of taking the paci away unless he appears to be ready for it, and as far as I can tell he's still quite a...

N will be 3 this summer and he's going to start preschool in September. He's been home with me (or my mom when I'm at work) since he was born. Have any of you had experience with Reggio-Emilia inspired preschools?
