  3. Sewing
    My 5 year old is already asking me to help her learn how to sew. She can thread a needle sometimes, and is doing random stitching in burp clothes or old rags to practice.

  8. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Dh and I just found out we are expecting a baby in early September. I've been searching the internet for some resources on preparing financially for having a baby, and they all seem kind of dismissive. Our concerns: 1) I'll be on half salary for 16 weeks of leave, so we will need to save at...

    UGH - new frying pan needed. What type do you recommend? Everything we cook in our frying pan sticks. Poor dh, this morning he cooked eggs for himself and they all stuck. So it's off to get a new frying pan in the next few days. What type do you have and would you recommend it to anyone?
