For our first one we went all out and ordered everything from RH. 2nd one repurposed it, 3rd one we became smart and bought from Amazon, target and etc. It is hard to not go all out on your first child.

Honestly kids are expensive enough. Do yourself a favor and go to Buy Buy Baby for a baby furniture set. $12 on amazon you can do the gummy piece around the top of the crib if you’re worried about chips. My kid’s crib looked like a beaver attacked the top. So I wish I would’ve got the gummy rail deal.

We did Room & Board. It was expensive but we love it and plan on using the dresser for years.

Oooooh I’ve not heard of this one. Will check it out.

Everyone I spoke to said the quality of the furniture didn't matter to the kids. It really is just for the parents. If you have destructive kids, they will break things no matter how quality it is. So save the money and buy things as they grow. Needs change.

This will be weird, but serious question. My three year old girl does this thing where she gets in child’s pose, balls up her blanket between her legs and then appears to be humping it. Will do it especially when she getting tired / close to nap time. But it is weird, like she is rubbing herself there. We plan to mention it to the pediatrician next time we go. Anyone else had a kid do this? Is that super weird or is it just random strange little kid stuff?

My boyfriend wants kids. The only kids I want are the ones with fur and 4 legs. He loves them because he has nieces and nephews, but he doesn’t even wake up when our senior cat cries at night or throws up on the floor. I’m the one that hears it. Doesn’t make me feel hopeful that he’ll wake up when he hears a baby cry at night. He sleeps like a log.

Did anyone else adopt the new Florida Wonders curriculum? We just adopted it this school year, and I teach 4th grade. My team and I have not found a good flow, schedule, or whatever you want to call it. We feel like it teaches too many skills in one lesson, and we are not able to truly teach anything “deep” enough for students to master. Does anyone have any insight? What do you do? Do you like the curriculum? Why or why not? Would you be willing to share what you do weekly/daily? Thanks!

So I’ve noticed CDs and clients are only familiar with standard applications of social media (ie posts). Stories took a minute to add to the mix. Been trying to introduce new ways to use social and they don’t get it and kill it. I’m told I need to break it down like I’m speaking to a child. Usually anything that takes more than one slide to explain gets killed. But idk how many times we need to explain a medium that ppl won’t take the time to familiarize themselves with...

My college best friend just lost her mother after her second battle with cancer. She lost her father to cancer in college, and all I can think about is the daily struggle I helped her with and how alone she must be feeling (even with siblings). 30 years old now and she lives across the country. Anyone have ideas of things that I could do to be supportive? Already sent flowers.
