Anybody still around?
Anyways, I was wondering what you all are doing with your September babies as far as school goes.
Here in Omaha, the cut-off for kindergarten is October 15. So Zoe will be able to start this year. We've done her paperwork, but we're still up in the air as far as starting her now, or waiting until next year.
I thought this would be a good place to ask since we all have fall babies and may be in similar situations. Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
This is an awesome group. I've been reading over some of the posts (wish I had time to sift through them all...but kids come first, lol), and it's great to connect with parents of similar-aged kids.
My name is Jamie, and I'm a 28 y.o. stay-at-home mom of 5 kids...age 6 and under. My daughter (for whom I joined this group!) was born on the 27th of September, 2005, and will be 3 in less than two weeks.
My other daughter (I have two of them, and three sons) is turning 7 on October 2nd, so we're having a joint party for them this weekend (20th) for the family to attend. :)
Is anyone else completely shocked that our little babies are turning three??
What are y'all doing for parties? Make sure you post lots of pictures in the coming month!
I was just wondering if anyone knew how long it takes for your babies eyes to change color. Olivia's (my 2 month old) are still dark blue. I wish I could remember how long it took for my first daughter's(savannah's) eyes to change.
This may seem sort of random, but if you are (or when you were) potty training, where did you put the potty? I know the bathroom is the obvious answer, but here's the issues.
1. We have a half bathroom in our room and only one shower in the main bathroom. So if the shower is in use- or that main bathroom- we really can't get to the potty.
2. Said bathroom is just down the hall from the living room/ kitchen, so if she has to go after she goes to bed, then she of course wants to go back in the living room and we have to go through the whole bedtime routine again.
3. On a related note, What do you do about those after bed calls to use the bathroom? Not middle of the night, but in the first half hour or so during that "I need a drink of water,"etc. stalling time. Usually she will go just a bit, so I thinkshe does have to go, but I think it's also in part a ploy to not go to bed. The other night she went four times, but just a few drops each time. I almost think she is holding it in so she can get back up again. Thoughts on this? Am I giving too much credit to the manipulative ability of a 2 1/2 year old? (Is that possible??
So, where do you place your potty? And what about the after bed potty requests?
