With all the celebrity scandal in the news, it’s tempting to not even turn the channel from Nick Jr. I come from a golfing family, so there has been much discussion of Tiger Woods even before he made the leap from the golf channel to the gossip shows. My mom loves him - she says he is the reason she got back into golf. My grandparents aren’t that fond of him, and the recent turn of events did nothing to warm their hearts. My grandma played in the first NCAA golf championship, representing Miami University. She still plays and recently... Continue reading

LOL - maybe we should put together an intervention - if it was successful I'm sure a van load of moms showing up to twist his arm would make it into his material... :)

I hate to hear about your experience, but it doesnt surprise me after the miserable experience Ive had, and others Ive heard. It is especially aggravating when its a local company (and in your case, when they ask for your opinion!) Companies should use customer service interactions to fix things and build customer loyalty, not alienate customers!! Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile

Oh no! Im sorry to hear youve been having problems too, Audrey, but Im not surprised given our experience. Ive switched to either Huggies Little Movers or the CVS supreme diaper brand. Neither is as absorbent as the old Pampers design, but both are better than the new design. Best of luck, leaky diaper and a sore baby bottoms are no fun!

I have been meaning to read that book. I love Easy to love, Difficult to Discipline which includes some similar strategies. I need to remember to set our schedule to help us succeed too, and remember to be realistic. Thanks for the recommendation! Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile

I think this is so true not just with kids today, but also with so many adults - people get caught up in what they "need" or "have to have" or in keeping up with their neighbors and overextend themselves. Our kids are too young yet to understand, but we also try and keep the focus of holidays on family and celebration. I hope that as they grow up they will recognize the importance of living within their means. I also hope they will agree that we are living richly even though we aren't spending wildly...

Yes! My 3yo daughter is always on the go, and I've been struggling a bit during this snowy season, especially now with an infant in the house. Finding different ways to say "no" is definitely one of my tricks (yes, but not now or yes, we'll do that tomorrow) but getting her to listen is a constant challenge. When I can go up to her, get down to her level and talk it works well, but when I'm nursing on the couch or changing a diaper I can pretty much forget it. Any tricks for listening? :)

I adore this idea!

I love this! :) Each year I get twitchy thinking of how much my SIL spends on my in laws (and tells us what our share is) while I come up with a thoughtful and thrifty gift for my mom. Our kids are still young enough that they're cheap to buy for, but soon we're going to have to make some decisions like this - I love your idea!
