Seeking Advice Regarding Traveling on a Plane with My Toddler Son.

HI to all moms and moms to be. I would like to seek some advice for anyone who had the experience of traveling with their toddler on a plane.I was given an opportunity to visit my mom who has been sick in the Philippines. My family there has not seen my son since he was born. We will be leaving about a month from now and I will be traveling alone with my toddler for about 18 hours with 1 stopover on the way there and 2 stopovers on the way back here. We will be staying there for 3 weeks. Does anyone know if I have to bring my own car seat...

How to Survive a 13 Hour Plane Trip with a 17 Month Old??

My husband and I are flying from West coast US to Australia next month with our 17 month old son. His favorite word is down and he is NOT a cuddler!!! I am starting to collect a few ideas on how to get through this flight (plus the 2 3-hour flights on either side of it). My pediatricians only advice was to not do it... this is not an option!! We will be there for 3 weeks and then have the same flight pattern home. Has anyone been in the same spot? What about using benadryl or something to help him sleep? (mind you, I am NOT a fan of...

pre-K Curriculum Ideas/resources ETA

This is a question for all the homeschooling moms out there. I am not homeschooling, but I would like to make the time I spend with DD at home a bit more productive in terms of educational content than just playing the same old games over again and letting her watch TV while I cook. I was hoping that you could point me to some (free) onlne resources that I can use to come up with a weekly plan of things we can do together and some tasks I can let her do by herself. I am just not very creative and having a weekly plan of activities really...

Activities for 18 Month Old

Ok, so i was wondering what kind of activities i can do with my 18 month old, Mia. She is very active, and with the cold weather, she is going stir-crazy. I am so tired of just popping in a Dora DVD or reading to her. I want something different. I work full time so on my days off, i feel like a bad momma cause there isn't anything that i can think of to do with her. I live in Tulsa. Any advice would be great.

10 Hour Car Ride with 20 Month Old Toddler

Does anyone have any suggestions for making a 10 hour trip more enjoyable (tolerable) for a 20 month old little boy? We just ordered a travel tray thing to help out and we have a car dvd player that we haven't used yet and think that should help somewhat, but we haven't gone on a trip this long with our son since last summer and now that he's way more mobile and active, I worry that he's not going to do well that long in the car. When I say 10 hours, that is just what mapquest says, so I know it'll be longer with potty breaks for us and...
