This Week’s Buzz: December 22nd – December 28th

#ThirdKid / #NoFair 

One of the twins hasn’t lost any teeth yet, and his brother has already lost three. It’s becoming a thing. (No Fair!) I wondered if the timing of teeth coming and falling out runs in families (it does), so I asked my mother-in-law when my husband had lost his first tooth. “I’m sure he has by now,” she said—a funny reference to him being her fourth child. He essentially raised himself. There are about 5 pictures of him from birth until he graduated college. (No Fair!)

But it’s so true, right? The first baby comes along and the sun rises and sets according to his mood. He or she had a wipes warmer, homemade baby food, and studio photos every three months. He never had a weight check or a well visit pushed back 4 or 8 or (yes, I admit it) 12 weeks.

Don't touch your face, mouth, nose, eyes, or hair!!

Play dates are germ fests, sorry.  Same for the indoor gyms.  Limit them both in peak illness season. 4. If your child is sick, cancel the play date, skip the party, and keep him or her home … [Read More...]
