I know I've still got almost two years to worry about this, but what can I say.. I like to plan ahead.


I'm thinking about having Lorelei go to private schools, pre-k up until she decides that she'd rather go to public schools.

What are the general opinions of private (religious or non-demoninational) schools that you guys have? Have any of you attended one? What did you think?

nikinikiniki: The Baby Battle---

My 17 month old son is starting to try and assert himself. He always does it at the most horrible times too. We were at the library and he proceeded to pull every book off the shelves and scream. He was having a great time. I was mortified! I didn't know what to do, but I knew I wasn't going to let him "win."

I picked him up and held him and said "No, you are NOT going to act crazy!"
He still started to scream even louder and trying to wiggle his way out of my arms.
I was starting to get irratated b/c he would not listen, I couldn't find my books and people were looking at me. I didn't want to get kicked out! I could have easily let him do whatever he wanted so he would be quiet...but to me a screaming child, who knows who's boss...even though he might not like it, it better than a child who IS the boss. I don't want to be one of those parents who is walked all over by my child.

So anyway- Micah screamed the whole time, I got my books and the libraian(sp) left me alone...Mission accomplished, right?

I still feel like crap though.

I am worried that I was to hard on him...b/c he is after all still a baby. I don't know. I am just doubting myself.

I'm six weeks pregnant, and I have a 2 1/2 year old son who is very smart for his age. He doesn't know I'm expecting yet, and I'm not sure how to tell him.

Little help?

vivalachloe: Amby Nature Nest

My daughter has reflux =|, and doesn't do so hot sleeping in her crib. She WILL NOT sleep in it. Ever. I've switched her formula to the Enfamil AR, and that has helped a little. I'd really rather NOT put her on the medication for it at such a young age. I've read some good things about the Amby Nature Nest, and how it helps improve acid reflux and colicy babies, but, I don't know anyone else who's had one, and, it's 200 dollars and non-returnable, and I can't find information about it anywhere, other than limited info on the site. Anyone had any experience with the Amby Nature Nest, or have any other suggestions?
