    The Bible and learning how I can best educate my children.
  1. My 9 yo DD has a crush on a boy the same age in her class. It's a very small school they go to. She says she loves him and even told him that but he didn't say anything. I did explain about hormones and how things will start to change as puberty happens. Those who have been through this with their kids , please help me navigate this road and give advice.
  2. My kiddo had Low muscle tone/ loose joints. He has never been able to play with a nerf gun independently because he doesn't have the strength to pull the slide back or pull any part back. Is there a nerf gun type toy that doesn't require any pulling?
  3. Thanks everyone for the help and great suggestions. No one has bites and my husband isn't worried at all. I want to check our bed better and order a bed bug detection kit. It is very possible that we don't have bed bugs but his bed still had a lit of brown flakes. It's a new mattress we bought from Amazon last February. I feel better about it but I know I should keep an eye out.
  4. It says my file is too big to upload.
  5. The kids are in bed and I don't think I have any bites. I'll check them good tomorrow. I will figure out how to post the pic of the bug.
  6. I was washing my son's sheets today and noticed the top of the mattress had brown spots all over and some clear white tiny balls. I lifted up the mattress and found one obvious black bug. It's has a round head and skinny long body, it was dead. I looked up online and I'm not positive it's bed bugs. I feel sick to my stomach and seriously light headed when I think about it too much. I have not even checked our other mattresses yet. I put the bug and other egg like things in a bag to show my husband when he gets home. We do not have extra money for replacing mattresses. Haha, if it was dead if winter I would just stick our mattresses outside. Please, I hope there is something natural and cheap if we do have bed bugs.
  7. What are your tried and true ways for facial care? I'm in my early thirties and I have terrible skin. I have a lot of wrinkles and clogged pores. I was on prednisone for a long time and I think it really aged me. Any cheap suggestions? I tried coconut oil but it gave me terrible acne. For my birthday I hope to buy some good skin products.
  8. Yes, I believe that the King James only movement is wrong. It's fine to prefer the King James Version of the Bible but to say that a person can only be saved by that version is heresy. There are so many things wrong with that movement.....
  9. Tiramisu, I think my son (5) probably has EDS. He has low muscle tone, loose joints and had dialated aortic root. He was tested for Loey-Dietz and it was negative, thankfully. We see the cardiologist and geneticist again soon. I guess I should take him swimming more So he gets over his fear of water.
  10. Did the rheumatologist do blood tests to check for inflammation and different antibodies? You want to check for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and lupus which is done by checking antibody levels. I'm sorry your child is going through this. I have lupus and I don't really have much advice other than don't discount her pain( I'm not al all suggesting that you do but sometimes with children it easy to do that). It's hard enough that I have pain often, it really hurts me when others dismiss my pain. Keep us updated. Hugs
  11. My friend said she had soaker her toe in Collodial Silver and it worked.
  12. The first bedwetting alarm we had for our daughter was terrible. It's had false alarms and was sooo loud, my poor child was so scared of that thing. Then we got a dryeasy alarm and it was great. No false alarms and there are different alarms with a vibrating mode. We just used the vibrating mode and with in a week our daughter was dry at night. Although, she did have a little "relapse" and we used it again for another week. The dryeasy alarm is awesome!
  13. We used two. The best one was dryeasy, it had different alarms, volumes and even an only vibrate mode. It worked for my 8 year old in 3 weeks. We were so excited, seriously!
