1  EARLY LEARNING / Homeschooling / Re: What Homeschool Curricula do you use? on: December 01, 2010, 03:02:23 AM
Technology-wise, we like and we have a new video game system called a Mobigo he's getting for Christmas.

As far as actual curricula, we like My Father's World because it incorporates our faith into hands-on learning activities and that works well for us.

Little Reader is not taking my license key for some reason. It says "Your license is valid but could not be saved for some reason." Samuel is missing his Little Reader sessions!!
3  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: Christmas Gift- Best Reading Electronic Gadget for 2 yr old? Leapfrog? Vtech? on: November 17, 2010, 02:26:58 AM
I was not impressed with the LeapFrog for babies. My son was never interested in it and I found it slowed reading down...he wanted to move on with the story but I felt obligated to push all these random buttons!
4  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Other Topics / Re: Doman inspired daycare - Have you found one? on: October 28, 2010, 12:48:28 AM
I think Doman would highly frown on there being a "Doman daycare" - he's all about mom (or dad, I guess) staying home 100% of the time when kids are little.

I'm near the Dallas area--maybe we could do an Austin meetup!!
6  Parents' Lounge / Coffee Corner - General Chat / Re: Have you seen Tutortogs - t shirts to stimulate baby’s intellectual curiosity on: August 27, 2010, 02:44:26 AM
I love these--what a fantastic idea!! I didn't know these existed and I tried to find a "prison" stripes shirt when my baby was little. I never did, but these are a much better idea, anyway!

Has no one entered yet?  Sad I'm going to have to create a video!
8  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Preparing for Delivery : Which Baby Stuff should I bring to the hospital? on: May 13, 2010, 01:19:49 PM
Mittens for the baby, a few outfits, a car seat (obviously) -- the hospital will provide diapers, bottles, baby wash and anything else you need.

I just had my little guy C-section in February!

And you should get ready now. Everything was going perfectly in my first pregnancy and I didn't have my bags packed yet at 34 weeks. All of a sudden I had to have an emergency delivery and be transported 1 hour away from my home to give birth to a preemie--I had no clothes, nothing for the baby, no spare underwear, no toothbrush.
9  Parents' Lounge / General Parenting / Re: how to make effective indoor escapes (tents) for toddlers on: April 06, 2010, 06:49:04 PM
We throw a blanket over the sofa or a chair or table. Nothing fancy!
10  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Other Topics / Re: Baby hates crawling :( on: April 06, 2010, 06:48:15 PM
A crawling track is basically a wooden or foam track so that baby can push off both sides for mobility.

See the top picture of my blog:
11  Parents' Lounge / General Parenting / Being the Parent on: April 06, 2010, 05:54:44 PM
I've seen a lot of posts lately on tummy time. Most posts go something like this: "My son/daughter hates tummy time so we don't do it often. What do I do?" Someone even said, "I don't dare leave him on his tummy or he'll get upset"

I know our parenting styles are all different, but most kids don't come out of the womb loving tummy time!! They love to be held. My little guy loves to be attached to my breast constantly--not to eat, just to feel secure. I do make sure I hold him and cuddle him and even wear him so he knows he's loved, but in the end children MUST be put down sometimes so they can develop!!

If you want your child to do tummy time--go for it and don't feel bad!!

Shoot for 10x/day of 2 minutes each at first. Get on the floor, too. Lay down so he can look into your eyes. Try to put him on his tummy when he's sleepy so he won't protest too much. Try it when he's wide awake and in a good mood. See if you can find a time when he's happy on the floor.

However, he might cry a little bit--and that's okay (with me).

We truly think tummy time is important. Our 2 month old cries for a minute after being put on the floor, but then he stops. And he's reaping the benefits from it--he can roll over bell to back and he can crawl several feet on plain carpet, even more on the crawling track. He's already getting up on his hands and knees and rocking in preparation for creeping!!! And he's just barely 2 months old.

I know we all parent differently, but it's amazing to me that people say "I know it's good for him, but I don't do it because he cries.."

What about when he's 2 and he cries because he doesn't want to brush his teeth? What about when he's 4 and he cries because he doesn't want to go to sleep at night?

Please don't feel like a bad parent when your child cries for a few minutes.  yes

Welcome! We are very glad to have you here!!
13  Parents' Lounge / General Parenting / Re: First birthday party - where to draw the line on: April 04, 2010, 05:36:05 PM
A child's first birthday party is really about the parents. We just had close family, though, not friends--but you have to do whatever makes YOU comfortable. If you can afford to invite 100 people and really want to, do it. If not, don't.

People might be upset, but likely they'll quickly forget it!
14  Parents' Lounge / General Parenting / Re: How soon after did your baby start walking after learning to crawl? on: March 24, 2010, 01:45:06 AM
My son crawled at 4.5 months, but didn't walk until 13.
15  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Weekly goals on: March 21, 2010, 09:34:33 PM
We do set weekly goals for our family.

For our 6 week old, we want him to spend as much time on his tummy as possible and start sleeping in his crawling track around the bed.

For our 3 year old, we have 5 words we're working on and I want him to continue working on his chore chart.
