live life loud <3
I work in a daycare with toddlers and am getting promoted to my own room with 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 yr olds. There will be 6 children in my room ranging from fully potty trained to still in diapers and just starting with it. I need suggestions for almost all my kids.
#1 a little girl who tells me wether she is wet or dry and poopy or not, but wont tell me if she needs to go and will not pee or poop on the potty when taken (there is no one working with her at home and im going to talk with the parents so we can all be on the same page regarding goals).
#2 a boy who pees just fine in the potty but wont poop at all he holds it in and is making himself constipated from it. But if I put a pull up on him he will poop with out a problem. (Mom and I are in daily communication about it and are both encouraging him and on the same page, buy neither of us knows how to get him to poop in the potty)
#3 little boy who tells me he pooped but isnt always right, same with peeing. He wears pull UPS but uses them just like a diaper.
(mom says he always pees at home in the potty, but he never has here, so idk how truthful she is being)
#4 little boy, says nothing about being wet or poopy, he does however stay dry for hours at a time. His mom and dad want to start potty training asap.
#5 little boy, stays dry for hours at a time, but shows no signs of interest in the potty, or training of and sort.
If you have any good website suggestions, or advice on what to do, or how to best get started please let me know.2 AnswersToddler & Preschooler8 years ago
My 16mo old daughter has started being very self destructive, she bites her arms when she gets angry or told no, and has started pullimg her own hair! Ive also noticed in the last day or so that she will bang her head on the wall or cabinets if she is frustrated!!
Ive never seen a child of her age do this before.
When she acts like this I dont yell or get mad it makes me really upset and sad to see my baby causimg pain to herself, im trying to give her more attention and positively encourage her. But she has a bad temper added to her age she is at a very tempermental stage.
I need advice or suggestions on how to help her find ways to let out her frustrations at this age. Or how I should be reacting to this behavior.
Im going to call her doctor first thing Monday morning.4 AnswersToddler & Preschooler8 years ago
My daughter was born in the month of may, and her middle name is mae( that was not on purpose, she was due is April, and middle name is after her grandmas).
Im now due with baby #2, and find out next Friday if its a boy or girl.
I have to middle name themes I was thinking about, if its another girl:
#1 going with another single syllable name
#2 going with the month the baby is born in but spell it differently. the month will be January.
Can you suggest cite single syllable girl names. And spelling variations for January please.
And wether you like idea #1 or #2.10 AnswersBaby Names8 years ago
I'm having my second baby in Feb. and to say the least I'm terrified of how hard its going to be, and how I'm going to cope with 2 kids under 2yrs old!
And then there's the scared to death, feeling of how my daughter will react to the baby. After all she is still my baby, and I don't want having another child to somehow rush her into having to be a big kid.
Anyways, what was is like for you going from one child to two??
I'm not asking what its like from a sibling perspective, or having more then 2 kids.
I just want to know your experiance with combining your first and second.3 AnswersParenting8 years ago
My sisters name is Sherry, middle name Christine.
If my child is a girl I want to give her a middle name after my sister.
I just can't think of any names that catch my attention and flow well.
I like pretty, feminine names that would never be mistaken for gender neutral names on a girl. I lean more towards classic, not overly common names, but nothing over the top.
Please help me out with your suggestions.18 AnswersBaby Names8 years ago

I don't like the classics like 'matthew, andrew, micheal, david etc.)
Although Im pretty set on either james, or steven(my dads name) for the middle name.
I want a slightly unusual name, but nothing off the wall.
I was set on the name Zane for baby #1, but I hear it far to often now.
Anyways throw me some awesome suggestions please :)13 AnswersBaby Names8 years ago
My daughter goes to bed with a sippy cup or botttle everynight, she only has water at bedtime. Now next step is eliminating either for bed time. Honestly she's a really good girl, and has never really had bed time issues (other then needing the comfort of a drink and blankie to sleep with). Clearly I see no need to eliminate her snuggle (blanket), but she is 15mos old now, and I think its past time to eliminate the bedtime bottle/sippy.
How did you go about it?
And I would prefer not to just abruptly take it away.
Would just putting less and less water be best? Or??
Idk just curious how you got your kiddo off of it?8 AnswersToddler & Preschooler8 years ago
I'm having a lot of lower back pain, and my shoulders are always aching.
I'm also getting almost daily headaches, and while standing, I always feel like I need to sit down, or I'm going to pass out, even standing for short periods of time, it feels like I am forcing myself to stay standing, I do remember feeling that way very late into my 3rd tri previously.
I had a perfect first pregnancy with #1, so all of this is new to me. I'm only 14 weeks that's why I'm wonndering if this sounds normal-ish?1 AnswerPregnancy8 years ago
I'm due to get married in a few months, and since I owe back taxes I don't want them to end up garnishing my fiances pay.
So if I get on a set payment plan, and I do not miss a single payment, will that keep them from possibly going after my fiance??4 AnswersUnited States8 years ago
Pretty much I'm young and had no guidence, and I had no idea how to deal with paying taxes. So now that I'm in over my head, I need to get these issues resolved. I just wanted to know if I could get my '10-'11 taxes done and dealt with first, because there's a lot less hassel involved in those years, then there will be with filing my '09 taxes.
Or will they make me pay they in order? '09,'10, and then '11?5 AnswersUnited States8 years ago
This is for parents who already have given birth/have their babies.
When did you decide on your childs name?
When I was pregnant with #1 I chose the name Scarlett, up until I knew she was a girl. At that point I was set on Delilah... up until about 2 weeks befor I delivered. She didn't have her actual name until she was 2 days old!
I'm havin number 2 and I'm set on the name Dash for a boy, and no ideas on a girl name yet. And I'm sure either way I will keep changing my mind anyways....
Well just curious :)9 AnswersBaby Names8 years ago
I had my daughter with an emergency c-section, and her sibling will be born when she is 21 mo. I'm only 14weeks, and my dr and I have opted for a schedualed c-section, and we havnt discussed a due date yet.
Anyways I was just wondering for those who have had a schedualed c-section when your dr planned it? On your due date? Earlier then your due date?2 AnswersNewborn & Baby8 years ago
My daughters name is Violet, and I'm pregnant with #2, don't know if its a boy or girl yet.
If its a girl, I want their names to be semi-matchy. As in both colors, similar endings, or simply from the same time frame.
If its a boy, I just want their names to flow well.
I'm looking for a slightly edgier name.
Suggestions please :)11 AnswersBaby Names8 years ago
My fiance and I are getting married this sept... we have kids and don't want to be to far from them so we decided we would honeymoon in colorado, in the north eastern area preferably. We aren't looking to spend a fortune, and we want someplace with a cabin and great fishing spots near by. Any suggestions?4 AnswersDenver8 years ago
So my bf and I broke up, and then I slept with anyother man, well my birthcontrol failed, and now I'm pregnant with his baby. I slept with him for very wrong reasons, I just wanted to move on and be done with my ex, and for some stupid reason I thought if I got something started with someone new I would be able to forget my ex quickly...... well it didn't work, I realize I don't have feelings for the man I slept with at all. And that I do love my ex very much, we already have a daughter together. Anyways I had planned to get an abortion and told the father of the baby this, he didn't want me to but I told him I was going to either way.. well I went to that appointment, and they did an ultrasound and I saw it moving and I saw a heart beat..... I couldn't kill it so I left.... I just told my ex about being pregnant by another man. He is so hurt and can't believe I did this, but he still wants to work things out. I don't understand how he could still give me another chance, but he loves me, so I will not break his trust again. Anyways he said he wants me to get an abortion.... but I know that if I did go through with the abortion now, that I would be doing it for him.... and I think eventually I would hate him for it. He has 2 children from a previous relsationship, and while the circumstances are far different, in my head him telling me to get rid of my baby, would be like me telling him to get rid of his kids so we could be together...... its just not something that can or would be done..... I suppose I'm just trying to get some advice on wether this situation could possibly work or if ultimatly were going to fail and have to go our seperate ways? I know people are going to be harsh and say mean things, but keep in my that what I've done is done and I can't undo it now, so helpful advice is what is needed.... and the odds are after I have it I'm going to get a tubal....3 AnswersPregnancy8 years ago
my mothers house has places on the walls in the basement that are crumbling away, some spots are small, and others are large. it just seems like surface damage, and the house is rather old, with no water damage, so i think it just needs a touch up. how do we correctly fix the walls? she wants to paint and carpet the basment so it can be used for spare rooms, but clearly we need to fix the walls before we paint.
so what do we need to do?4 AnswersMaintenance & Repairs9 years ago
