    Can older children get Croup? DD started off with just seemed like a cold runny nose etc. Now she has a barky cough, and it is way worse at night. I know she used to get croup alot when she was under 3 ( I used to have to walk outside with her around the block alot) but I don't think I have ever...

    No matter what stage of life your kids are in, do you find yourself looking for signs they they are maturing, growing up? Do some of the signs take you by surprise? My son is in his 30s, and the other day I noticed some white in his beard. Such a shocker.... This is my little boy.... Then...

    It seems as though there's a new trend at my job and a few friends of mine. Dating/marriage to much older men/women. My bff is dating a man that is 15 years older than her and she is happier than I ever known her to be. I have a couple of coworkers who have married older men. My ex-husband...
  4. Adoption
    My husband and I have started the paperwork to adopt in Arkansas. We are hoping to adopt a school age child. Has anyone adopted an older child here? We are very excited and are starting to educate ourselves so that we can provide the best home possible. We are hoping to adopt a sibling group...
  5. Sewing
    I have an old (from the 70's) Montgomery Ward sewing machine. It works fine for my purposes, but I need to get an attachment for it. I want to buy a good quality invisible zipper foot. I tried the cheap plastic attachment that Clark makes, and it broke already (piece of [email protected], IMO). Since these...
  6. Third Agers
    With age comes wisdom.. supposedly anyway. So what are the really useful and meaningful things you've learned as you've gotten older? I've learned that it's not rude to say no.. and mean it. And that you don't have to be mean saying it, there are a million nice ways to say no. "Oh, that sounds...
  7. Multi-generational/multifamily
    We just moved my Dad here a year ago. He is now 87 - turning 88 this summer. He lived 8 hours away and I have 2 special needs needs which made it difficult for me to always drop things and run down there. He got to the point to where he was calling 911 for every little sniffle. There was...

    My Little Girl has been vomiting for about a month - first it was about once a week (mostly "spit") Last week she vomited food on three different days. She is fine after these episodes eating like she was never sick. She's otherwise fine (i.e., peeing and pooping okay) I'm taking her to a new...
  9. Third Agers
    Hello! I've been on the forum awhile, but have been a bit shy to post. Well, here goes. My husband and I waited to have children. We did alot of travel, etc. When I was 37 I really felt the deep urge to have children, so had my first at 38, my second at 40 and my third at 41. We're both 47...
  10. Just Tips
    My dd just turned 5 and I haven't been successful with nighttime potty training. She wears the Goodnights pull-ups. I saw on another thread that you could use maxi-pads for girls? Has anyone done this? Does it work? Do you use a maxi-pad (which brand?) with underwear? Are there significant...
  11. Christmas
    I am so glad that I read the other (original) post. Now I have the same dilemma but only for older kids. I find it harder and harder each year to find gifts for my kids (4 boys and 1 girl ranging in ages from 18 (girl) to 27). The 4 boys also have long time girlfriends so I buy things for them...
  12. Education
    Hi there, I just received my official letter accepting me to college in the Fall. My major is Information Management & Library Technology. I'm excited and scared at the same time. I know that the average age range for school has risen but I'm in my early 40's and I'm nervous at being the...

    I don't mean this to be an alarmist thread. Recent conversations with family members and a couple of comments here have simply sparked my curiosity and thought prcess. When reading the latest recession thread one talked about older family members speaking of when they had to ration gas and...

In a hospital for months after a car accident, she had a window on the world of elderly patients who, like her, were recovering from broken bones. Intrigued, she decided to study the psychology...

    I have a cat that is 2 1/2yo. DH just got us another kitten for christmas. Of course its a kitten so I won't even mention how hard it is to get it out of the tree. What I do want to know, my older cat, Bella, is very territorial. She is hissing and growling at him, which we completely expected...

    I didn't want to hi-jack Daisy's thread - :duck: but I'm curious - Do you think that older siblings should watch their younger siblings for free? Or do you think they should be paid as though they are a babysitter? My personal belief is that an older sibling should be paid - as well as...
  20. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    Just curious, a comment from anothe site made me wonder: How many of you, with children 18 years old and older, that are living at home with you, and either attending college and working, or finished college and working (and they are saving their money to move out, and pay for their college)...
