Sorry to ask this here. If anyone knows a group that I could join that would work better please let me know.

My husband cannot take my daughter's crying. She gets upset over things like demanding to be held while we are making dinner. We tell her we can't we try to be loving and understanding but she cries and cries. if he wasn't home I would ignore her and she'd eventually stop because it isn't getting her anywhere but when he is home he gets upset, and frustrated. She feeds off of his upset and his back and forth giving in and saying he can't. It makes life hell. Do any of you have any experience in dealing with a husband and an almost two year old and surviving?!

Perhaps http://www.livejournal.com/abuse/policy.bml#spam this would be useful information in taking care of our problem poster.

Hard to believe that it's getting closer and closer but we are only two months away and I'm starting to think about what we wil do to celebrate Ceridwen turning two. I was currious if anyone here knows what they are doing already?

This has been a hot button issue with my family (both blood and inlaws) and I'm really curious how the other parents here feel on it.

Do you have any restrictions on what your children eat other than allergies? Do you think it is better to limit or omit certain foods or for your children to eat whatever they want?

Just went to see Santa the other day I think it turned out rather well.

Now that summer is over all the lovely summer fruits that Ceridwen loved to eat are gone. She'll eat some frozen fruit but really isn't particuarly fond of it and I can't blame her there. She prefers the frozen fruit in her smoothies. She loves to say the word "apple" but hardly eats them. Doesn't like oranges at all unless it is in juice form, and eats pears okay but gets tired of them if they are daily. Do any of you have any suggestions for fruit solutions? Her favorite fruits are blueberries, rasberries, blackberries, and strawberries.

I'm in over my head. Can anyone help me out? Yesterday she fell asleep in the car coming home from the children's museum which is normal but woke when put into bed which is not normal. She wouldnt' sleep after that. She slept maybe ten minutes in the car. Today I decided to not force the nap issue. I made plans for us to go out during her nap but maybe them flexible enough to change if she fell asleep. She fell asleep before we even got close to our destination. I came home, put her in bed and she starts screaming. I'm trying to let her cry it out but she just keeps screaming louder. I don't see how she can possibly fall asleep this upset. I've let her cry it out before but this is much worse.

Do I just go about our plans even if she falls asleep and pull her out of the car and wake her? Do I change the nap routine somehow? I just don't know what to do. I thought maybe she's done with naps but you should see how tired she was. We drove maybe two miles and she was unconcious. Anyone?

Don't know how many of us are still around but I thought it might be fun to see and so I have a question for the group just for a few laughs.

I know that many children at the age our children are can become attached to a particular food item, or other food quirks... Ceridwen for example will always eat macaroni and cheese. She may turn her nose up at everything else but I've never seen her say no to mac & cheese. What food(s) does your child love or what food quirks does your child have (IE. the peas can't touch the mashed potatoes)? Ceridwen's quirk with food is that if she doesn't want to eat an item it can't stay on her plate. She has to move it to the table or floor, it's not enough to just not eat it, it can't even touch her plate.
