Re: Dating and boys

I also agree that teens shouldn't be dating. When our girls (and boys!) are old enough to seriously consider marriage then I could see them entering a sort of courtship. But I really think "kids"...

Breathe Eazy

My 6-yr-old son has had asthma since he was 2. It's not a constant plague as it only "hits" when he catches a cold. I believe they call it "Viral Asthma"? Anyway, although we have a nebulizer and use...

Re: "max" number of kids

We've always said we wanted at least 12 but it's really as many as God will give us!

The first is a brand new book by Amber Dusick called Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures.

I'll try to post the story of her arrival in Whoville soon.

Re: each other's best friends?

Mine are all good friends (aged 8 and under). But when my daughter's friend comes over, the two girls tend to exclude everyone else. Still trying to work on that with them. :)

We also homeschool,...

Re: Tacky Tuesday

We once returned a gift just because it wasn't something we wanted in the house (we don't "do" noisy toys). However, the money was put back on the giver's credit card and I was slightly embarrassed....

Re: I should probably give it up....

I think I've seen a few homebirths on that show, but it was quite a few years ago.

The few times I've seen the show (at my mom's because we don't have a t.v.) I end up wanting to yell at the t.v.,...

Re: Tithing

Yes, but in Malachi God is speaking to Israel and the tithe seems to go directly to the temple/priests.
Since our bodies are the temple of Christ, how would tithing apply? It wouldn't seem like we'd...

Re: did you? Do they?

Nope. I was never interested in that sort of stuff.

As for my kids, we don't have a t.v. and they listen to the music that my husband and I listen to. So they don't care, either.

I'd prefer...

Re: New ... seriously considering Home Birth

Most of us who decide to home birth have done extensive research on the subject.

With my number 2 baby I had more bleeding than I normally do. My midwives (there were two of them on hand) had...

I thought you were going to have a unibrow or something. Your eyebrows look wonderful!

And your baby has beautiful big eyes! So cute!

Re: Due in two weeks...could use some suggestions

I've always loved the name Simon for a boy. And it doesn't seem to be popular right now.

For a girl suggestion...Damaris? I believe it means "gentle".

Re: Tithing

So how does tithing to "the church" work when you have a home fellowship?
I don't think the "church" is a building or a specific pastor. The church is a body of people that worship Jesus and do...

Re: Tomorrow is box day!

The Handwriting without Tears looks interesting. Right now my 6-yr-old son HATES his writing lesson (from Abeka). I might try this and see if he likes it better.

Re: What's the most you've paid?

Just bought a brand new book called Trim Healthy Mama for $35.00. I've never spent so much on a book and it took me several months to decide if I was going to. So far, it's been worth it!

Re: I am 2... I guess we start over
