So my first pregnancy was when i was 15 years old and it was during my sophomore year of high school. not really my fault or anything, just put myself in a bad situation but hey couldn't change the past. but i found out my child was gonna be a boy and i was happy. when i was 16 i had him. he was due may 1st but he came 2 wks and 4 days early. it was apr. 13th 2007. he was 7lbs 6 oz and 20.5 in. long. i named him trentyn xavier. his labor/delivery was really easy, only about 5 and a half hours long and with no pain meds and vaginal, with an episiotomy. i gained about 45 pounds with it.

Dumbed-Down Parenting

Lots of parents tell me they rely on screen activities such as GameBoys, DVD players, and computers to entertain their kids when waiting. "It's so easy." Yes, the screens do engage kids, for sure. But are there ways to occupy kids that are more beneficial to them?

What Can Our Preschoolers Do for Grandparent's 50th Wedding Anniversary

My parents 50th wedding anniversary is this year. I'm hoping/planning/wanting to throw them a party, but on a budget. I was wondering what things I can do with this theme in mind.

I keep thinking I'd like to make a special scrapbook for them, but I know time will be an issue for that. I was thinking instead, maybe just a more simple photo album with pictures.

I also keep wanting to make them a memory quilt, but I don't know if I would really have time to do that either.
