  1. It was a total hit! This is going on the permanent Thanksgiving pie menu. I would love to try it with labnah next year.
  2. Sour cream apple pie?! Mind blown. I hope the supermarket is open because I'm going to need some sour cream urgently.
  3. I am so sorry. Holding your family in my thoughts.
  4. Thanks. LOL. So much conspiracy weirdness out there these days, it's hard to know what people are reading.
  5. I second Athleta for bra sized tops. They are pricey but well made.

  7. This is very controlling and not okay.
  8. My son soaked the bed every night until he was nine. We finally bought a bed wetting alarm, and it took only a few weeks for him to completely stop wetting the bed.

It sounds like your daughter has some very solid skills, and I'll bet the two of you can tackle this together. I would encourage you to find a little time to have her read out loud to you every day. Just ten minutes or so. You can alternate pages or chapters so that it isn't too tedious for her. It will slow her down and force her to break down words she doesn't know, and it will give you and opportunity to stop now and then to talk about
  12. Mom of two dyslexics here. There are a few different programs for dyslexics that I recommend you look into. One is Barton. It is expensive, but extremely comprehensive. It is worth going to their web page and doing their free screening. There is High Noon Reading Intervention. I personally haven't used their program, but I have met several people who swear by it. When I look at their samples I am impressed and it is a fraction of the price of Barton. I don't think it is as comprehensive as Barton, but maybe enough for your situation. The last one is Dancing Bears reading and App
