    Not Telling
  1. My friend rented the Baby Jogger City Mini from one of the stroller rental places for her child that age with autism at Disney. You can request stroller as wheelchair when you get your DAS. My son loves his Keen Newport H2 and won't wear anything else, other kids wear flip flops which aren't really great for walking.
  2. My younger brother finished community college and didn't go on to a four year school right away. He found a career that was experience based rather than formal education based and pursued it for more than a decade. He has since completed both a bachelors and masters in another field and is thriving in a new career.
  3. My husband works 14 hour night shifts now. Until a year ago, he worked both those and day shifts every week, so this is easier. We keep regular hours and try not be noisy, which can be difficult because we have a small house. School usually happens while DH is sleeping.
  4. It really depends on the size. I will never shop at Dillard's for a bra again, what they had in my size was not good quality. A really good lingerie/bra store is a great resource. If she needs a band size under 34 and/or a cup size over DD, Ewa Michalak, Panache/Cleo, Freya, Fantasie, and Curvy Kate are all good brands, but the sizing is different than with American companies.
  5. I require yearly swimming lessons (2 weeks in the summer) and we go to church. At 7, that was all he did. In fact, we didn't start any other outside the home activities until 9 other than occasionally and irregularly, except for park days.
  6. It's also free to listen if you have Amazon Prime.
  7. Duke's is what we started using when we gave up sugar the first time and just kept using it. Regular mayonnaise doesn't have a significant amount of sugar in it, but things like Miracle Whip and low-fat mayo do.
  8. I haven't used TOG, but I would imagine someone has a day by day lesson breakdown for it. I don't do Bible, we just use SOTW and do whatever extra stuff from the activity guide sounds good. My 10 year old doesn't remember anything from the first two years of history, so I figure just do what is interesting and fun for your family for elementary content areas.
  9. We have changed things over the years, but we have used poetry, fairy tales, myths, novels, picture books, various nonfiction, and now SOTW.
  10. I just look for good recipes, like from http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/ and https://www.ditchthecarbs.com, and eat protein and vegetables for every meal.
  11. Or maybe you mean the information that is in the beginning of the level, like this? http://www.welltrainedmind.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/WWS.InstructorSmallSample.pdf and http://downloads.peacehillpress.com/pdfs/samples/wws/WritingWithSkill_2_Instructor1through10andappendices.pdf

  13. My friends love Bonnet Creek through Vacation Strategy or Vacation Upgrade.
  14. My 10 year old was able to tell me verbally, I don't know if he would be able to write something under testing conditions. We haven't covered it in grammar yet.
  15. I have one. I would have liked to have had more, at least in theory, but secondary infertility took care of that. We don't have the space or money to do anything about that or to adopt. I think a cutoff age for having babies is very personal, I would be happy to find myself pregnant even now in perimenopause.
