Hello everyone. My husband and I live in a one bedroom apartment in Glendale. The rent is $1600. For now we cant move out of here for several reasons. Now I am 6 weeks pregnant and I am worried is it ok to share the bedroom with newborn baby?? Has anyone done that?
I need some advice. I am a stay at home mom that occassionally works as an independent contractor. I get up pretty early to take my kids to school, and get a start on my day. Although, my husband doesn't. He goes to work whenever he wants [also, an independent contractor] so he doesn't have a super weird schedule where I would have to be mindful of noise level. BUT, everyday when I com... More
I'm a working mom who doesn’t always have time to wash clothes right away. So when my child has stained clothes I can’t always throw them in the washer, since I live in an apartment and the laundry room is always busy! My question is: what laundry soap is best to use on kid’s clothes to get old stains off?
My soon to be 2 year old son is by far one of the pickiest kids alive. And i say that because my other 2 kids will eat the dirt from outside if they could. He’s a pigeon eater as i like to call it. Kid survives on a meal a day and snacks 🤦🏽♀️ I’ve been looking into like pediasure and things of that nature. Any suggestions, recommendations even words of encouragement will work at this point
My husband and I are having trouble with renting a house. It seems we don't meet the standards needed to rent and although we make enough to pay for a nice home,[my husband and I each own our own companies for over 3 years now, makes $$$ steady income] no-one will give us the time of day because of our low credit. We are young starting up and our family is growing fairly rapidly to still be... More
Has anyone gone through this; what kind of words did u use to discourage this behavior. She is always in the kitchen when we are cooking and won’t leave the stove top knobs alone. Anytime I try to talk about safety etc. she goes on about all the things in her view. She is 21months.
My almost 21 month old kiddo takes more than an hour to eat, every single day. She sits for good 15-30 minutes and then walks around or reads and one of us have to feed her. It just delays the bath and bed time. Just wondering how long other kiddos take..... we do family style dinner everyday.
A few months ago he was adventurous and curious to try all solids. He even had some favorites. That progressed nicely until just this past week or so, when his tastes regressed out of the blue. He won't even try foods that need fingers, utensils, bowls, or plates. Not even purée, unless I mix it with his milk/formula in a sippy cup. Two questions. What's going on here? And how do I get...

My husband and I decided we want to move to Washington state from Kansas. It’s a lot more expensive there but we want to be closer to family! Any tips on selling everything/saving? Do’s and don’ts? What was your experience like moving to a different state. Thanks guys!
We’re evaluating a move from South Florida (suburbs of Fort Lauderdale) to Austin/job opportunity for my husband. Looking for any and all advice from families who have made a similar move. Nervous working momma of a 2 & 4 year old trying to work through all of the emotions of leaving home/family etc. Appreciate any tips & advice!
My son is so picky he’d rather starve and he really hasn’t gained much weight because of this! Anyone have any tips or tricks? Thanks.
My oldest is headed to preschool Tuesday and I am scrambling to figure out lunches. What are your kids' favorite packed, no-need-to-heat again, no-nut lunches? For context, we are no added sugar, prefer to avoid processed foods eaters. Even though we've tried sandwiches, my son dissects them and only eats the bread. 🤦🏻♀️ In an attempt to be prepared for anything that works, I'v... More
Why is it wrong for me to expect my wife to come home and cook even if she works? I work too but I help with the cleaning. Why am I expected to get how after a 12 hours shift over night and still be expected to get up early to take my family out or help my wife with the kids?
We got a dog about a year and a half ago. We did our research beforehand but after 10 months with the dog we decided it was a poor fit (chewed up everything, played too rough with our young kids, was supposed to be a hunting dog but had no hunting instincts, not fully housebroken) and the breeder refunded our $. We waited about 6 months and put a deposit on a puppy. In the meantime we had th... More
