A friend's 5-year old has 6 cavities and the dentist claims it's from not flossing. How many of you really floss your preschooler's teeth?
I'm a huge fan of Love Without Boundaries and in this post the founder shares Mother's Day should celebrate "moms who admit they are perfectly imperfect." Take a bow, ladies! http://www.lwbcommunity.org/to-mother

Jeannie Frohring McClure Scott had very similar issues for a while. He went to many different specialist. Ruled out celiac, but he does have a gluten issue. He's been gluten free for some time know and feels so much better. Have you considered this?

UnPerfectMoms Yes! Thank you! The pediatrician actually called me today with his test results and he has a parasite that could be causing the tummy pain. Since he's been pain-free for several days now we are trying to decide if we should treat it, or assume it's run it's course and gone.... going to talk to the pediatrician again tomorrow. How is everything with you??? We are going to be in Florida in a couple weeks, are you home during the days or are the kids in school?

Lawana Morse :) We made big babies out of our batch last year. This year, we have close to 30 so it is easier to not get attached. Plus the ones who will be added to our freezer this fall are much more aggressive than the ones we babied. Chickens are lovely pets!

In my former life (i.e. before kids) I was a travel editor. I've visited over 40 countries on six continents and have an International MBA. Now in my most glamorous role as a full-time mom and part-time writer (meaning I'm busy 150% of the time), I write for pregnancy and parenting magazines and share my wisdom here at UnPerfectMoms.com More about me...
