Petitioning to make a TV show more realisitc discipline by [email protected]
AOL now doesn't have newsgroup access, but I wanted to come back to misc.kids once more; I frequented it years ago when there was no need to moderate it. I'm using the name I rarely use but that is used for IM'ing and such right now. The reason I post is because I have begun a campaign to get...

How to deal with interfering grandparents? by Abi
Hi, I was wondering whether anyone can advise re my DH's parents - grandparents to the baby girl I have just recently had. I find them incredibly interfering - they keep offering unwanted advice like their word is gospel, and seem to delight when I do something wrong. My DH is always on the phone...

going out to work vs motherhood dilema by Abi
Hi, I am a bit confused of late and wondered if anyone can advise? I am just about to have my first child, I am incredibly excited and looking forward to raising her, seeing this as a more important `job' to me, than `going out to earn a living'. Having worked in a variety of jobs/careers for the...

intro and question attachment parenting by Alicia
Hi there, my name is Alicia, I'm 29 and just had my first baby two months ago. He's a wonderful baby, very alert, gorgeous and full of life. His name is Raine. Anyway, Raine has been crying quite a lot lately, not due to a growth spurt as he just got over one. I have elected an...

Little One HATES the car seat! by Alicia
My beautiful baby boy is now almost 12 weeks old, and since he was about 4 weeks old, he has hated the car seat! He screams like we're doing something terrible to him, goes as stiff as a board when we try to put him in it and sobs for about 15 minutes after we take him out. It is horrible! I...

pain ten weeks after c-section by Alicia
Hello Everyone, just thought I'd share what I'm going through and see if there are any other women who have had the same experience. My little one is ten weeks now, and just over 11 pounds. My doctor told me not to lift anything heavier than him for three months while I healed and I've been...

Baby Food vs. Big People Food by Amy Hunt
Hi. My son is 12 mo. old now and I am having an extremely hard time switching him over to big boy food. He ONLY wants baby food in jars. He'll eat crackers and peas, but that's about it. He screams hysterically when I show him the "big boy" food. When I say big boy food, I mean...

Finally pregnant again after all these years! by andrea baker
Hi folks, A couple years ago I'd posted regarding washers, dryers, and a new addition to the family. Well, it appears that I'd jumped the gun, but now, about $13K later, I am finally expecting #2, a girl, due in April of 2004. -Andrea Baker

almost 3YO girl insisting that she is a boy by andrea baker
Hi folks, Hypatia is almost 3 (can you believe that???) Anyway, for about the past 3 months, she has repeatedly insisted that she is a boy. She will, at times, get angry when I say things like "what a nice little girl you are" and will say, loudly, "no, I'm a boy!" Anyone think this is...

southwest Wisconsin, Dubuque IA, anyone for a potluck? by andrea baker
Hi all, Anyone remember the misc.kid picnics of the early-mid 1990's? I went to one in Hudson, way back when I lived in Eau Claire. Anyone live in Southwest Wisconsin or that part of Iowa near Dubuque want to talk about a misc.kids.moderated potluck? -Andrea Baker

fun Easter morning by andrea baker
Happy Easter! So last night, we colored 15 boiled eggs (we drew on them with crayons, and then dyed them) and then put them in the fridge. While we were asleep, the Easter Bunny came and hid them in the house for Hypatia to find. I heard Hypatia in the middle of the night talking grumpily to...

lead hazard in apparently all Christmas lights by andrea baker
Hi folks, For those of you who were around in misc.kids back before misc.kids.moderated was formed, I had posted a few times about commercialism at Christmas. This post is not about that, but I would like to do a little prefacing here for anyone who might wonder why I, of all people (given my...

Hi everyone, Thanks for your input on baby naming. I've tentatively decided to switch the names around (Artemis for the first name; Hypatia for the middle). This weekend I was having brunch with a vegetarian friend of mine-- he, of course, raised his eyebrows (but didn't comment) when...

Anyone think I shouldn't name my daughter Hypatia Artemis? Other suggestions? by andrea baker
Hi folks, I'm thinking of Hypatia (after Hypatia of Alexandria) for my daughter's first name, and Artemis (after the Greek Goddess of the Hunt) for a second name. My parents are horrified, and think she'll be teased. I thought if she doesn't like Hypatia, she can use "Patty" for short. For...

stretch marks on growing tween by animzmirot
My friend swears it's normal, and I have a call into the pediatrician, but I figured I'd ask anyhow. If you have a daughter who is in the midst of her puberty growth spurt, did she get stretch marks? DD has them on her butt, thighs, boobs, and sides. She's very thin, at 5'3 she weighs about 108,...

She did everything right-- Scary Post by animzmirot
Late this afternoon, after working for hours and hours on a big project for school, DD wanted to go to our local pizza place for a couple of slices. This isn't an unusual occurance, in fact she's a regular there as it's on her way home from the school bus. The pizza place is all of two blocks...

Worlds pickiest kid by animzmirot
Help! I'm trying to shop for camp for my daughter. She's almost 13, wears a size 4, is extremely opinionated about clothing, and we cannot agree on what to buy.

Moving on, growing up by Ann Porter
My older son, for many years my "baby," will be heading off to college in the fall. I've not really had this experience before; his sister's "leaving home" was much more dramatic, and less positive. While he's going away, he's not going far; just to the Big State University about 80 miles...
