Re: Kitchen project.....Where to start???

I think you have to start with a builder.

Re: secret behind the picture perfect marriage?

Seriously?! I don't get some of these replies at all. Apparently, we are still very uncomfortable with women talking about sex. @Elodie, not my thing, but more power to you - IMO, your writing does not come across snobby, preachy or explicit... it's a reflection of your experience, which is what blo...

Almost all of my friends drank limited quantities while pregnant, as the guidelines are not as restrictive here (as compared to the US, for example).

Re: Advice to stop yelling at my kids

Yes! Read Attachment Play by Aletha Soltis. She may have better books for your children's age groups, but look her up online. She also offers Skype consultations. She is the only person to give practical tips about what you CAN do, instead of what you should or shouldn't do. Changed my relationship ...
