Seeking Female Pediatrician for 12-Yr-old Autistic-Spectrum Child

Hi, there! My daughter, whom we adopted from China when she was 10 months old, has a long list of psychological challenges, but we do our best to deal with those through specialized schooling, therapists, and medication. Right now, my question is a bit different. She menstruated regularly as clockwork for about a year (started early!) and then suddenly stopped. She has been 5 months without a period. My own OB-GYN can't see her, as a minor, and suggests she see her pediatrician. Problem is, I have come to LOATHE our pediatrician, who...

What Song Is My Pre-schooler Singing?

My son keeps singing a song he learned I think during MOPS the other day. I have noone to call in MOPS to ask what song this is. I was hoping you ladies could help me. Some of what he is singing is: "...Somebody step on me...." "....I'm a nut. (sound with tongue tock tock). I'm a nut (sound tock tock)" He keeps singing "I'm a nut! tock tock! I'm a nut! tock tock!" and it's driving me mad that I have no idea what he's singing. BTW - he doesn't say "tock" he makes a clicking noise with his tongue. Anyone know what this is?

PC Or Mac???

My PC is approaching the end of its life and I am trying to figure out what my next computer will be - a PC or a Mac. To be honest I am leaning toward a Mac because I love the photo & video programs on the Mac. Plus the whole Vista thing on the PC really scares me. I know Macs cost a bit more, but what do you think, is it worth it? I use my computer for internet, email, address book, word, excel, publishing, music, photos (lots) & some video. What would you do?
