  1. Congratulations! I had no idea that UCs send out any early acceptances. I thought they all do it in March.
  2. Shoot, I did not even think to use any of those spaces for this purpose. So what did you end up doing?
  3. What do you do when your kids do not like to look inside themselves and self-reflect? Struggling with application essays here. Unfortunately, there are no big projects to talk about either.
  4. May I ask what you used as a supplement? We are finding ourselves in similar situation. Thanks!

    Have we talked about air fryers?

    The chicken pieces with skin do get beautifully crispy due to the rendering of fat. Not so much with salmon though, because it will get dry before the skin gets crispy, and I would rather not eat a piece of dry fish. No breading needed.

    Have we talked about air fryers?

    Favorite recipes: 1. Roasted potatoes. Cube potatoes, about half an inch thick. Toss with olive oil and whatever seasoning you like. Air-fry at 325 F for about 10-15 minutes, toss about halfway. I go by how my food looks, not by exact time. 2. Chicken drumsticks. Rub drumsticks all over with salt, white pepper, turmeric powder. Let sit for 2-4 hours. Air-fry at 350 F for about 20-25 minutes. 3. Frozen breaded or fried convenient foods: frozen french fries, egg rolls, breaded calamari, breaded shrimps, chicken nuggets, flautas, meatballs, and everything else you can find in the frozen section of your grocery store. I air-fry most things at 325-350 F and eyeball for doneness. 4. Salmon fillets. Sprinkle salt and pepper on salmon pieces, let sit for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator if time allows (it's okay not to), cook for 8-10 minutes.
  7. So this was 1 unit of World History? Did the supplementary suggestions come from the books or did you have to come up with your own list?
  8. Did you check with the teacher if she teaches the same class outside of this academy? If yes maybe your DD can take the class there?

    Getting rid of old diaries

    Never thought I had company. I bagged all of mine and threw everything in the trash can shortly after the first kid was born. And this was years after the time I ripped out all the pages containing the most personal, intimate, embarrassing thoughts.
  11. Arcadia, I wonder if you know where a homeschooled kid can take an AP Computer Science course in Silicon Valley. I have not explored online options because I think my kid would work better with a physical class but I am open to all suggestions.

    Blood in stool

    No, he hasn't had anything red in particular. And I am confident it's blood because when I help him wipe there is red on the tissue and his bottom looks a little distended. Sorry, TMI. But everything always looks normal awhile after BM. Do you mean plain lemon water? Or is lemonade okay too?

    Blood in stool

    Bright red and it looks like a lot, at least enough to color the entire toilet red. There were no visible fissures when the doctor examined him today so he concluded that they have healed. In one day, I was thinking? And re-injured with every BM? He said possible.

    Blood in stool

    I have often thought what you said is true but the standard advice is always to add fiber, such as bran muffins, whole wheat bread, etc.. So you are saying don't add fiber too much until his fluid intake is significantly increased? Doctor suggests apple juice. Does that help?

    Blood in stool

    My six year-old has passed blood in his BM the last two weeks and the doctor basically tells us to change his diet to one higher in fiber as well as miralax for three days. Has anyone's kid had this problem before? Other than the usual whole grain diet, no white flour, no milk advice, has anyone been successful in getting their kids to pass softer and more frequent stool by changing their diet? Any suggestion for food a six year old might like on this diet?
