A good site is Teachers Pay Teachers - it's technically for teachers but they often have freebies. The flashcards are cheap - $1 - $2 and even if you don't buy you can definitely get a lot of ideas
My tot has been coughing since Fri. We have seen the doc and were prescribed a cough syrup. But it doesn't seem to help. What can I do?
A doctor once told me. Cough medicine are less effective. It only suppresses the cough but does not cure it. Maybe you want to let it ride its course. If you really want to give medicine, try pros..more
i agree with Chin Yin. thats what I do for my 4 yr old. Actually,cough medicines are seldom effective.

What do you prefer to receive when your friends visit you after you give birth?
Cash would be best as many times items bought are repeated. Otherwise can also contribute to the Cda fund. Alternatively ask the mom what she needs or is lacking :)

How much are you willing to spend on a newborn gift when you visit your friend who just gave birth?
Yup. Same as most. With close friends, I would just ask what is needed and buy accordingly. With acquaintances, usually would share with other friends and the budget is typically around $10-30/person..more

Ironically, we had a bash till the age she was so young that throwing a party or not wouldn't matter to her. When she turned 3 and 4, we had parties but not on a very large scale. They were little hom..more
