  • When are the Jellyfish in Rockport/Corpus Christi Texas bad?

    I know some months there are no jellyfish or man o war problems and then other months they are EVERYWHERE! We are trying to plan our family vacation and looking for a time when the kids will actually be able to play in the water and it won't be super crowded. Any ideas?

  • Does another option exist for my overstuffed scrapbook?

    I am compiling a family scrapbook and while I was able to get 200 empty pages (like the ad said) into the book, now that I'm filling them the scrapbook won't close. Is there such thing as an expanding book that will hold all you can make or do I need to break down and get multiple books?

  • Looking for a sticker maker?

    I'm starting to get into scrapping for my daughter. The stores all seem to have the same old stickers and such and I'm more interested in designing my own. Like with my own wording and having the option of printing things like bubbles and splash water drops and thing like that to customize the pages. When I've searched all I've found are laminating machines that are called sticker makers but that's not quite what I'm looking for. Any advice or ideas?

  • Tetanus and 15 month old toddlers, is she at risk?

    We are choosing to delay vaccinating our daughter. Before everyone decides to jump on that, please let me ask my question.

    Our pediatrician wants us to fully vaccinate her, we don't feel that's in her best interest. However, having done research regarding some vaccines I am slightly concerned what her chances of contracting a tetanus infection are at her age (she's 15 months) and if it would be possible to only vaccinate for tetanus at this age and avoid the dtap vaccine. When I try to discuss this with our pediatrician she goes on a rampage about how dangerous the world is and how easily she could contract everything and on and on when the research I've done doesn't support that. I want to be prepared when I talk to her regarding this, and have all information I can to defend my decision and work out a possible solution. Thanks for you help!

  • where can I find organic/ free range cheese and milk?

    I understand that organic milk is better for my baby because it doesn't have hormones or pesticides and should be fed a better diet. So if the milk is so much betters, shouldn't the meat and cheese be as well? We already get free range eggs but I'm unsure where to find anything else.

  • cordless blinds that pull up and down and block the sun?

    My mothers rental house has blinds that don't have cords, you pull them up and down and they are like an accordion. They block out the sun excellently and I've searched online but don't know what they are called so I can't find them exactly. Any ideas as to what they are called and how I can find them?

  • Is organic milk better than hormone free or is it the same?

    Our local grocery store's milk has a "our farmers pledge no hormones" label on it. My husband thinks that is fine, but my mom says it's not AS GOOD as organic. Is there a difference?

    My mom also says that organic milk is gotten by hand the old fashioned way and regular milk is pumped which allows the teats to get cuts and abrasions causing bleeding and the blood gets into the milk. Is there any way to avoid this? She also says that the hormones in cheese cause premature development but I don't really see a lot of organic cheese in the store. What is the best milk and cheese to feed my toddler daughter?

  • how long will we use our diaper bag?

    I gave away our old diaper bag when it stopped fitting everything we needed in it. Now our big bag is way too big. Should I buy another bag or just a bigger purse? My daughter is almost a year old and I don't want to buy a diaper bag if we aren't going to use it much longer.

  • What 2 snow cone flavors would you choose?

    I'm renting a snow cone machine. I get 100 cups, spoons, straws, and napkins as well as 2 gallons of syrup. I know 2 GALLONS! I asked to have more flavors and a smaller size, but he said no go. So my question is... what flavor would you choose? I'm sure he has quite a few, but please just pick normal flavors like,

    Lemon lime, cherry, grape, pina colada, coconut, strawberry, etc. Thanks!

  • Could my 9 month old be autistic?

    I've heard a lot about arm flapping being a sign of autism and that it can show up in infancy. My daughter flaps/flails her arms and kicks her legs all the time. Anytime she is happy or upset she'll flap her harms around like younger infants do. I've not seen anyone elses baby doing this in our playgroups. Is it normal?

    She's otherwise fine as far as I can tell. I've taken her to the dr. before because I was concerned she wasn't meeting milestones. She always meets them in time, just not as quickly as some of the other kids. She's a snugly delightful baby I just want to intervene if this isn't normal behavior and try to help her if she may have autism. I've heard the earlier you intervene the better the chances for your child. Any thoughts on what we've got going on here?

  • Should I still give the gift?

    A friend of mine recently had a bridal shower, to which I was not invited. I wouldn't have ever known the shower took place if she hadn't called me and told me after it happened. She knows I bought a gift for the shower and that I wanted to attend. We talked regularly about her having a shower and when it might take place, then suddenly she called and told me "it was a last minuet thing" and that was it. I have no problem giving gifts and don't consider myself a cheap person. I've actually given this same friend "just because I thought you'd like it" gifts in the past. Still... I don't know. I guess I feel like it was a shower gift and I wasn't invited to the shower. Can I just keep it for myself and just forget why I purchased it in the first place or do I have to give it because she knows I bought her something?

  • Why so much pressure on developmental milestones?

    My daughter is about 7 1/2 months old. At every dr.'s appt we've been told she's right on target but when I talk to friends they seem to think she's behind. She has no true desire to crawl, but would love to walk. She rolls everywhere and pulls herself by her arms where she can't roll. She won't sit unassisted unless she's sitting on something and will talk some days and not others. Is there something our dr doesn't want to tell me or is there just too much pressure put on moms to have "on target" babies. I asked my mom and in the same sentence she told me there must be something wrong with my husbands genes because her babies sat before 7 months and then that it's not my daughters fault if she didn't read the book that told her what her milestones are and when she needs to hit them.... What gives? Is my baby ok or not?
