Gift Ideas for a 5 Year Old Girl

Two weeks ago my family moved to a new state. We have only had a chance to meet a couple of our neighbors. One of which invited us to her 5 year old daughter's birthday this coming weekend. She thought it would be a great chance for us to meet the other neighbors. The birthday is a come and go as you please party in their yard.

6-Year Old Is a Picky Eater!!!!

I'm very frustrated with my 6 year old son who ONLY wants to eat junk. It drives me nuts. He has such a limited menu of food that he will eat. It is very frustrating. Today, while he was at school, the teacher expressed to me that my son is "fussy" when it comes to food. Today was Dr. Seuss day at school and she served "green eggs and ham." She also had biscuits with jelly, some fruit, etc. He wouldn't eat anything. He told me he's not used to eating at school. UGH. I'm frustrated because I don't know how to help him. He will not eat...

When to Tell 5 Year Old About Pregnancy

I'm about 4 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and I'm wondering when to tell our 5 year old son. I don't want to tell him too early just because it would be difficult to explain if something bad were to happen and I wouldn't want to crush him. ... but waiting until first trimester is over seems EONS away! When did you tell your children about a new pregnancy?

Pregnancy Complications and Wants to Have Another Baby

I had very serious complications after my 3rd pregnancy. I had a 6 hour c-section and went into DIC and then had blood clots in my lungs. This is the first child for my husband. We really want more children. I am not sure if I should have another child. Any opinions or stories of your own complicated deliveries are greatly appriciated. I am not really looking for advice more than positive outcomes from other people. I am going to have a doctors opinion before I make a decision.

Clear Blue Pregnancy Test

My husband and I are trying to conceive our 2nd child. My period is due early next week and I will be honest---I am anxious and very excited to take a pregnancy test if I don't get a period. Clear Blue box says you can take it up to 5 days before your period is due; however it's more accurate the day and after you miss your period...just wondering if anyone has tested early and gotten an accurate result? Thinking about trying it...or maybe I should just wait?! My period is very regular...every 25 or 26 days.
