3 Year Old Son Refuses to Potty Train

Hi, my 3 year old son does not want to potty train. We started training when he was 2 1/2 and I never pushed it then and now we're approaching 3 1/2 and he freaks out when I mention going on the potty. He can pee, but has only gone #2 a handful of times which were absolutely at my insistence and pushing. I talk about it daily to him but he just gets upset or unruly. We moved twice last fall and his world was turned upside down and I really think the instability has set him back a bit. But we've been in our home now 2 months and we're...

Do You "Sneak" Your 3 Year Old In?

We are planning to go to Legoland and Sea World next week, both of which have a "under 3 - free" policy. DD just turned 3 in June. She's average height and weight, but very verbal - when she's not being shy, which is most of the time. My question is, have you "snuck" your child in in this type of situation? Have you ever been questioned? It would be great to save some $$. Yes, I do understand the ethical considerations, but $$ is tight, but DD has been asking to go to these places. (We can stay for free w/ relatives, and I have a...

Disneyland/DIsneyworld Or Legoland?

Hello Moms! I have two sons, 9 & 12. We would like to take them on a trip this Thanksgiving or Christmas. We cannot decide among Disneyland, Disneyworld or Legoland. My oldest is still into Legos (he is now a collector) and thinks he would rather Legoland, but from the website it seems to be geared toward the younger child. Can anyone give me some advice on where would be the better place to take them? If you prefer Disney - which is better, Disneyland or Disneyworld? Thank you in advance!
