    We do have dental. For orthodonics we have a $2,500 lifetime maximum for each kid so there will be some OOP expenses for sure. Surprisingly, we have only paid our 10% copay so far, though. The...

    She was so stressed out over the extraction. After the first one was out she was in disbelief-it took longer for the novocaine shot to be administered than for each tooth to be pulled!

    I recently read a way of talking around things. It was specifically regarding bloody noses (I know, random) and their causes. One of the main causes in elementary age kids is picking their nose. One...

    I think it may be time for MIL to fit her time in around your family's time. Like Kim's dad and the other grandparents do-come to games and practices if that's what your kids are doing. Prioritize...

    We don't. Kids get off the bus at 3:20. If I pick them up we get home slightly earlier-maybe 3:10 or so. By the time they've had a snack and gotten backpacks unpacked it's 4. Minimal homework-20...

    At her age, I ignored it unless it was something truly dangerous...not just something I felt to be gross or disgusting.

    It seems more and more that goody bags aren't being done at the parties my kids go to. Or maybe it's because they're older. Either way, I think you'll be fine without goody bags. The bouncy stuff...

    So glad they're doing an EEG. My first thought with the first ER trip was seizure...and I'm not a doctor. I'm really surprised they didn't go there, then!
