Ooo, hooray! 

It is going great here.  I am using Little Reader with my 1 and just turned 3 year olds.  They absolutely love it.  We've only been using it for a little over a month, but they ask to do it every day.  Fun!

3  Parents' Lounge / General Parenting / Re: Ideal gap between babies? on: November 05, 2010, 07:26:41 PM
What an interesting topic!  Let me share my experiences.  I am at the end of my 9th pregnancy (less than 3 weeks to baby!).  This will actually be my 6th baby, as we lost 3 during pregnancy.  So here is how my spacing has worked out:
Baby #1 was born. 

Miscarriage when Baby #1 was 2 years old, no birth control between babies.

Baby #2 was born when #1 was 3 1/2 years old.  This spacing was hard because I had gotten used to a preschooler who could do everything for herself (feed herself, go potty, etc) and had to go back to diapers, and all that goes with a new baby.

I got pregnant with #3 when #2 was 3 months old.  Baby spacing was barely 13 months.  This was difficult in that my second child was still very much a baby, had just started walking, and ended up being nonverbal clear to age 2.  But we got through it okay and today it is great spacing.

I had a second baby die in utero when my #3 child was 10 months old. 

I had baby #4 when #3 was 22 months old.  It went fine, no major adjustment.

I had baby #5 when #4 was 16 months old, this was ideal.  It was the easiest transition of all so far.

I had miscarriage #3 when baby #5 was 7 months old.

I will  have baby #6 by the end of this month, with baby #6 being about 20 -21 months old.

We prefer to just take them as they come, and honestly, I wold not enjoy spacing each one out 3 years + as it would feel like starting over completely each time.  I like getting all the baby years done together.  Right now my oldest is 9 years old, followed by ages 6, almost 5, 3, 1.
4  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: help me to welcome my newborn!!!!! on: November 05, 2010, 07:15:48 PM
Find help now so that you can focus on just being mommy for a few weeks.  Get some help with meals, housework, etc.   And hold the baby as much as possible -they can't be held too much in the beginning!
5  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: What is teaching: science, art or both? on: October 29, 2010, 06:23:48 PM
I think teaching is very much both!  It is a science in that you can learn regular, proven techniques/rules that consistently provide the same results with most children.  However, the art portion of teaching is finding the right combination of the practices for your child.  It is being willing to try things 'outside the norm' to find the perfect learning environment for your child.  I am about to have child #6 and so far none of my children learn everything in the exact same way, though they all respond generally well to many of the same things.  They each have small areas of difference, and that is the art of teaching, remembering what speaks to each child and modifying my teaching on the fly to accomadate them.
6  Products Marketplace / Product Discussions and Reviews / Re: Laminating Machine on: October 29, 2010, 06:15:42 PM
I have two.  The Xyron 900 is a cold laminate on a roll, you hand crank the machine.  It is more flexible and more expensive, but was the first thing I got years ago on sale.  Now I own a Scotch Thermal Laminator as a prior poster mentioned.  It was $20.00 and is a heat laminate. I love it!  One neat feature with the heat laminate is it becomes a wonderful dry erase surface, so we laminate activites the children can then use and reuse.  I purchase my laminate for it from . 
7  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Other Topics / Re: Lego, Blocks and Jigsaws what's normal on: October 29, 2010, 06:12:31 PM
No clue here either.  I will say my boys seem to naturally have a gift for Lego type creating, while my girls do not think so 'spatially'.  The boys also enjoyed puzzles from a younger age.  My girls prefer play patterned after real life, such as cooking and playing mommy or doctor.  They will use Lego and Duplo, but it si not their first choice.  I have one son (he just turned 6) who can put a Lego set together on his own (more than 150 pieces) after putting it together once or twice with instructions.  Before he could read at all(we're new to LR as a family) he could put together a Lego Pirate ship, etc from memory - something mommy still can't do!

Interesting, I had no idea there is a dvd - we just picked this book up at a library book sale.  We'll stick with the book I think.  big grin
9  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / Re: When did your baby do their first sign? on: October 26, 2010, 12:29:33 AM
My little guy is 8 months and not signing yet, but when he's upset I can sign "eat" or "milk" and if he smiles and gets happy, I know that he wants one or the other.  So at least he's understanding

Mine have understood signs long before they used them, and still the younger two understand more signs than they use.  It's pretty normal, just like understanding what is said to them long before they can speak clearly in response.
10  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: Teaching ABCs & Legos on: October 26, 2010, 12:27:44 AM
Ha, those are neat.  My boys are lego lovers, I'll have to show them the videos tomorrow when they are awake.  Thanks for the links!
11  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / Re: When did your baby do their first sign? on: October 25, 2010, 05:26:39 PM
My children have had a range with when the first sign appeared.  The youngest was 10 months, average has been closer to 12 months. We love the Signing Time dvds and began using them with our 2nd child who was nonverbal at age 2.  He quickly learned to sign AND speak, though he had some speaking difficulties that had to be resolved through surgery eventually.  We have signed with every child since, and our oldest learned to sign as child #2 did.
12  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Poll - Food cravings on: October 25, 2010, 03:02:53 PM
Oh yes, ice cubes are good too!  Of course, it makes my hubby grit his teeth when I go chomping on ice.   rolleyes   I try to do it when he's at work instead of at the dinner table. smile

That is something my little ones would think is fun - off to check out the website.  Thanks!
14  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: What are your favourite early learning programs, books or DVDs? on: October 24, 2010, 03:25:55 PM
I was going to say Signing Time.  We also enjoy the Leap Frog dvds.
