Moms Are Talking About Right Now
2 hours ago -k. j. asks from Covington - Hi mama's I have a question about my 13 1/2 month old son. He broke in a red rash around his mouth after eating oatmeal for breakfast. This is the second time he did this. First was a few months ago all my children likes eating their nuggets with ranch. I gave him a litt...
2 hours ago -M. H. asks from Madison - Hi everyone, Do you have any books you would recommend for children (8+ yrs old) that explains sex, but also emphasizes that sex should happen after a couple is married? And even better if the book talks about God, Christianity -sex after marriage, etc. Thanks.
3 hours ago -J. M. asks from Olyphant - I am a Mom of 4, 3 boys and one girl. My daughter is the oldest at 11, the others are 9, 7, and 5. Anyway, earlier tonight my daughter was taking a bath and asked me to help her rinse the conditioner out of her hair. While I was helping her I noticed HAIR, down THERE. ...
5 hours ago -L. M. asks from Nampa - Hi! Well, I'm a softie. My 15 yr. old was out shopping for her birthday and we ventured into a pet store. You guessed it.

8 hours ago -J. L. asks from Roselle - Roselle mom looking to watch one child in my home. I have a 3 year old daughter that would love someone to interact with. Have been a nanny for over 20 years. A lot of experience and some college.
16 hours ago -S. A. asks from Chicago - My son is turning 9 on Thursday and I've been in such a funk. I haven't done one thing yet to get ready for his birthday. I need to snap out of it and get my butt in gear, but I just wish he had a few more months of being 8. I am always melancholy on my kids' birthdays...
September 29, 2014 -M. 2. asks from Downers Grove - Hoping for a few recommendations for a good orthodontist in Downers Grove, Lisle, Naperville or Woodridge for my daughter. Do you have one you can send my way? Thank you!
September 29, 2014 -C. R. asks from Buffalo Grove - My son is almost 4 (in December) and is not wanting to go #2 in the potty. He knows when he has to go and will ask for a pull up or just go in his underwear. It is frustrating. I am at a loss of what to do next. We have tried telling him that he will get a toy if he g...

“You’re so pretty,” she says.
I am typing into my broken-down Android, letting my husband know I am still at the clinic with my mother. We are waiting for blood work, and then we need to schedule an appointment with a social worker to help us navigate the corruption at her assisted living facility. My mother has dropped more than 15 pounds in three weeks. It’s time to throw in our cards and get some new ones….More
My husband works at home most of the time, but does commute to a big tall building about twice a week to attend lots of important meetings and business lunches. For this excursion, he transforms into someone who shaves, carries an access badge, and wears a button down shirt — freshly pressed by me of course. (Alright, I put it in the dryer on high, with a wet wash cloth, after having left it damp and wrinkling for 3 days.)…More
