Pretend Play or Dress Up?

Does anyone know of a place in the Plano area that our therapist can take my daughter to do pretend play or dress up or something interactive? My daughter has autism, and we do 30 hours a week of therapy. I am looking for a different setting than our home - she is sooo tired of all our stuff. The Clubhouse 4 Kids (parker and independence) is exactly the type of place I am looking for, but unfortunatley, they closed down. Any suggestions? Thanks. J.

Meditation Does It Work?

I need to find a way to calm myself better. I used to do meditation but I found that it wasn't helping, but then again I wasn't trying really hard. I am angry more often than not. It is mostly relationship related, and now my extended family and close family is on my case. I have to do something before exploding. Therapy is a long term goal, but for now I need something that I can do to find a way to bring the boiling pot to simmer. My husband is trying to work with me more, and being more understandable about most everything, but with...

Want to Learn Photography

Any suggestions for local photography classes? I have found that getting photos taken of my kids at all of the important milestones is getting quite expensive. I want to learn how to do it myself. Obviously not looking to make a profession out of it but still be good enough to blow up some of my own shots to be framed and hung on my walls. Even looking at investing in a digital SLR camera (no, I don't know exactly what this means, I just notice that that's what all the photo people use!!!) LOL!

Buying a Camcorder

Hi Moms, With all the choices and options on camcorders these days I have become overwhelmed. We have a family vacation coming up (with lots of family) and I would like to purchase a camcorder to capture the memories. I have seen some out there that even do still images. Does anyone own one that they love and would recommend to another mom? Which is preferable, the kind that records to the mini DVDs or the one with a hard drive. I really appreciate any comments/advice. Thanks so much.
