My 2 yr. old daughter keeps telling us that she is scared of things. Sometimes, it seems like she is just startled by something, like when one of our cats runs around, but other times it is something bizarre. Last night, as we were reading a new book, there was a tiny picture of a walrus, and she kept saying that she was scared of the walrus. Huh?

8 Year Old Girl Party

Hi Everyone, My youngest daughter is turning 8 at the end of the month. She wants to have a sleepover. I am looking for inexpensive ideas to make the party fun. I thought they can make their own fleece pillow (kit from Oriental Trading), but other than that I am blank. Should I just have the girls come around 5:00 pm and just do pizza, pillows and movie, or is that just too ordinary??? My daughter is really easy to please, but I want them to have a good time and not be bored!! Thanks for any ideas!!! C.
