  1. Wow!!! Happy Nirthday to all, and to all a good booyahhhhhhhhh! (that’s 9 Hs, or supposed to be. Someone with younger vision can double check for me) Next year, double digits! 🤯 😱🤩🥳😎 Love, Duck
  2. I'm considering this for my DS (with dyslexia/dyscalculia). We've seen dramatic improvements over the years in his numeracy and number sense, and he regularly reviews his times tables, but I'd like to mix things up a bit just for variety, and would love to see improvement on his speed of recall and confidence.
  3. Under orders from Dh, I'm planning for next year. Not because he cares about planning (he's a fly-by-seat kind of guy) but he because he wants me to print off as much as possible before beginning his new job next week (which does not offer him printer use like his current job). Bah. I really think we just hold everyone back a year and call it a day.
  4. A (sheepish) hello to everyone! I haven't been on the boards in a while, but have missed you all. Ducklings are all doing well, and are growing so quickly. I don't get much screen time these days, but do enjoy following each of you as much as possible. Love and hugs to all of you!
  5. We discovered this book when our oldest DS was 7, and needing waterproof pads changed on his bed at least 2x/night, often 3 (we layer-caked the pads between extra sets of fitted sheets, btw, just to save our sanity in the middle of the night). I'd never heard heard that constipation could be the root of it (especially since DS seemed to have the opposite problem) but the book was an eye-opener and a game-changer. We followed the "clean-out" protocol it recommends (and continued for many months... I think we tapered down to one clean-out per week by the sixth month). But we continued because it was so successful: DS was dry through the night in the first two weeks, and even the very rare relapse disappeared within a year. A few of our younger children also had wetting problems, though not as severe, but responded just as well to the approach. YMMV, of course. A friend of mine gave it a try and had great success with one child, and less success with another. But it's certainly worth a try. Feel free to pm me if you have any questions.
  6. C-Rods. And base-10 blocks. Hands-down the big winner around here. They go into my "If all you could teach from had to fit in a backpack" backpack.
  7. My wild yeast isn't yeasting. Pizza nite is in coming up fast, folks. We Need Yeast. Also my stimulus money isn't....stimming? "According to information that we have on file, we cannot determine your eligibility for a payment at this time." We are indeed eligible. We haven't been using Direct Deposit in recent years so I really wanted to get set up for it and was supposed to be able to do that starting today. Pooh. I think it's time for a glass of whine wine.
  8. laptop is dyyyyyyyinggggggggg and the cord is in dh's meeeeeeetiiiinnnnnggg........
  9. My lefty has the prettiest cursive in the family. So there's that. Maybe Isaac Oliver? But still coming back to Isaac James. It fits with your classic sibling names. I love it. DO IT.
  10. Ditto on Isaac James. Tell No One that Every One Else disagrees.
  11. Yay! Congrats! Buy Awex a puppy. Names: First thought was Isaac Alexander, but that could be a little family redundancy. So.... Isaac Nathaniel Isaac Eliot Isaac Benjamin Isaac Dorian Isaac Theodore Isaac Jude And while I'm leaning toward not-two-syllables, there's... Isaac Colton
