16  Local Support Groups / Ohio / Are there any LR users in Ohio? on: October 22, 2010, 09:11:51 PM
I was wondering if there are any other Little Reader users in Ohio?  It would be neat to get to know some local users as many moms look at me like I'm crazy (for using LR and for many other things - haha! rolleyes ).
17  BrillKids Software / Little Reader - General Discussion / Re: Additional Content Downloads Q. on: October 22, 2010, 09:08:48 PM
Thanks!  I'm just starting to look ahead, we'll be set for a while with what came with the program.  I would like some religious cards for things like Jesus, church, temple, and so on.  I may just make them myself if I get time before the next baby arrives.
18  BrillKids Software / Little Reader - General Discussion / Additional Content Downloads Q. on: October 22, 2010, 05:59:13 PM
Okay, we have been enjoying using Little Reader and I'm sure I have just missed how to do it, but how do I download the content files others have offered on the forum?  Are they free or do I need to use points for them?  Any other hints/tips?

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
19  Parents' Lounge / Coffee Corner - General Chat / Re: What do you do to earn money? on: October 22, 2010, 05:54:35 PM
I am not working, I stay home full time.  However, some ideas I've considered or done in the past:
childcare in my home
writing curricula for different grades
product tester
teaching a class in my home to homeschoolers
20  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Other Topics / Re: what interests your child? on: October 22, 2010, 05:51:47 PM
Other things that come to mind I didn't notice listed:
country flags
state flags
landmarks/famous places
flowers, trees, foods
fish - there are so many fish!
21  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Poll - Food cravings on: October 22, 2010, 05:47:27 PM
Mine has been different with each pregnancy.  One was no meat and lots of baked potatoes.  One was breads.  Another was anything vinegary - especially pickles.  Another has been fruit, mostly apples.
22  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Do you recomend a pregnant woman reading to his child before being born? on: October 22, 2010, 05:45:17 PM
I do not read specifically to the baby I'm pregnant with, but I have 5 other children and read to them daily, so the baby yet to be born is hearing tons.  And we do start reading aloud to baby from day one in the hospital.   Wink
23  Parents' Lounge / For Guests - No Membership Required / Re: Toys? on: October 22, 2010, 05:43:32 PM
For super realistic animals try Schleich figures.  We have some and they are hand-painted, hold up beautifully, and my children love them.
24  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: Late Starter Need Help on: October 22, 2010, 05:40:35 PM
We've been using Little Reader with my 19 month old and my 36 month old.  It holds both of their attentions and the 36 month old asks for it daily.  I know one of the draws is it is on the computer, they like getting time with mommy and her computer.  LOL Cutting out all tv/media for a while is not a bad idea either.   yes
25  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: lefty or righty? on: October 22, 2010, 05:36:30 PM
Mine have been a mix of ages, but by 18 months I knew with most of them by observing which hand they favored for eating with silverware and coloring.  I have 2 lefties and 3 righties so far, I'm a lefty, and my husband is a righty. 
26  Parents' Lounge / Introduce Yourself / Re: Hi All on: October 22, 2010, 05:34:45 PM
Welcome to the forum!  Have fun, everyone is a wealth of ideas here, I'm learning a lot.
27  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: Preparing for the delivery on: October 22, 2010, 05:27:16 PM
This was fun to read for me.  Here is my situation:
I'm getting ready to have my 6th child in a few weeks.  My 5 previous deliveries have been vaginal, no pain medication.  However, my body had an odd quirk - it does not sustain contractions.  Even when I have my water break naturally and walk into the hospital to meet my midwife already dilated to 7cm, I don't have contractions.  So I have also ended up being on pitocin each time.  Sigh.  Pitocin is not fun! 

Anyway, I am ever hopeful that my body will do the contractions on it's own this time, so we'll see!
28  EARLY LEARNING / Homeschooling / Re: Using lapbooks with toddlers? on: September 27, 2010, 02:16:27 AM
We like lapbooking, sometimes for a young child we even just cut the folder in half to make two mini folders with only a few things inside.  A folder is the right size for little hands, not as overwhelming as a full notebook can be.  Still, each child is different.  smile
29  EARLY LEARNING / Homeschooling / Re: Using lapbooks with toddlers? on: September 24, 2010, 04:15:08 PM
Yes, lapbooks are great at this age and beyond.  We also keep regular books central by often making a lapbook to go along with a real story.

One free resource is Tot Books for lapbooks geared to little ones.  Homeschool Share has lapbooks for toddlers and older for free as well.
30  Parents' Lounge / General Pregnancy / Re: When and how did you find out about your baby's gender??? on: September 24, 2010, 11:05:41 AM
Hi TristanR,

   Wao...... amazing, both you and your husband were very hardworking increasing the population  Wink . I was so worn off from my girl and not dare to have another kid. We would like to have some time for ourself too. How can you cope your life with all of your children? Hopefully there were helper of parents in law to share your burden.  smile Happy Parenting !


 smile   Honestly, life with children gets easier the more you have.  I think the hardest was babies 1, 2, and 3.  Until baby 4 came along I had to be everything for each child: friend, playmate, helper, etc.  Even when my oldest had 2 younger siblings they were so little she couldn't really play games with them, but by the time my 4th was born everyone else was old enough to be playmates together.

Now we are at the point where I am the one asking to join in the play, they are all busy together.  LOL   

The work (housecleaning, cooking, etc) does grow with each child, but they are all able to help out there.  It is funny, my 5th child is only 18 mos, but he happily helps his siblings unload the dishwasher, picks up toys, and generally tries to do what everyone else knows how to do.  My 1st would not have done so, she had no examples to follow of kids helping.
