3Rd Grade Dd, Larger than the Rest

Hi ladies, this one is breaking my heart and I am at my wits end with how to handle the situation. The last 3 years my dd has really shot up and out. She's only in 3rd grade and stands at least a head taller than all the other kids, not just her class but the entire grade. She has also put on weight and although she doesn't really seem to notice yet it's becoming obvious in the clothes she wears and wants to wear. She is extremely smart and we tried to have her moved up when she was in kindergarten but the principle was truly a jerk and...

Seeking an Outstanding OB GYN

I moved to Omaha from Lincoln a little over a year ago and I LOVED my OB GYN and have continued to see him while in Omaha. I am now pregnant and think it's about time I find one in Omaha. I live in the midtown area but that does not dictate where I go for my OB/GYN. Any recommendations and/or advice would be much appreciated.

Little Things to Get Back in Shape / Encouragement Appreciated Also

Hi Moms, I need your support, and ideas/helpful hints/tidbits to get healthier, shed some inches, get back in shape. OH - just started walking at lunch at work (15 minutes). I'm 45, mom of a 6 year old, wife of a med school student (who is in school with a bunch of hot 25 year old childless women). :P Hubby loves me, that I know, but he'd like to see "healthy body me" again. I reminded him that my healthy body is going to be a 45 year old/gave birth healthy - and I'd like to see that again, too. I'm just tired and bogged down. I...

Freshman Girls Being Bullied in the HS Gym Shower

My twin high school freshman daughters have been having a problem with the same girls since 7th grade. One girl who is also their grade runs and dumps her gym bag by the shower to "hold her spot" as next in line so she can shower early even though she walks away. Then if my daughters are ready and try to get in the shower, this girl verbally bullies them and won't let them in the shower. Now that they are in HS, the same girls who are 1 year older (and were a problem in 7th/8th grade) are at it again too but now are sophomores. My...

Do People Buy Used Crib Mattresses?

I'm thinking about selling the 2-in-1 crib/toddler bed that we have, and want to know, do I also try to sell the mattress? It's going on 4 years old, but it has never been wet or dirtied, so I think it's still in good shape. It's a Simmons that I paid $99 for new. Do people also look for used mattresses when buying a used crib? TIA!!
