Boating with Infant

Hi There, wanted to know if any of you outdoorsy moms out there have had experience with taking infants on boats. My little girl (2 months) does great on the boat, but an infant sized life jacket is still way too big to function properly or be comfortable. We had the same issue with my now 2 year old son. Typically we take them in their car seat/carrier and just place it on the floor infront of the passanger side seat under the windshield. This works great for us, but I know it is technically illegal. We have been lucky and have not...

Teen Daughter That Is Too Much into Her Boyfriend

I have a 13 year old daughter that lives her life for her boyfriend. All I ever hear is about him and his mom. What great fun they are and it really hurts my feeling that she doesn't want to be with me. I am sure this is a phase she is going through but I also want to spend time with her. If she is at home it is a big fight to get her off the phone or computer with her boyfriend. Any suggestions?

Fear of Driving

Hello I have a friend whom although she was able to get her license about 15 years ago, she still doesn't drive. She simply fears it and although she has done therapy around it and hypnosis, this has not yet helped. Has anyone else out there over-come a fear of driving and if so, how did you do it?

What Do to About Job

I have been back to work full-time now for about 1 1/2 years and I really hate it. I got a new manager about 4 months ago and she is just unbearable. She is completely opposite then me - very confrontational and rude. My heart just isn't in my work at all. I don't want to be there as it is and now I have to put up with her micro-managing. I make great money which is the worst part of all! My husband won't let me quit because his business is in jeopardy right now. He owns his own construction business and of course it has completely...

Bringing Home Baby Outfit

What type of outfit did you use to bring your baby home from the hospital? Size, style, etc? Should I bring a preemie and a newborn outfit just in case? It will be winter time (I hope!) when the little one is born. Did any of you use the car seat covers in winter so you didn't have to bundle baby up so much? Thanks for the advice moms!

Seeking Volunteer Opportunities

I am looking to volunteer my time somewhere that I could bring my one year old with me. I realize that having to bring her limits my options but I was hoping some moms out there would have some ideas for us. Thanks so much.
