comment How to a talk to my 4 1/2 year old daughter about death?
Great answer. I used a similar approach with my 3-year old son; only problem was a family member who told him about "Going to Jesus' House", which just led to a lot of confusion. He did fine at the funeral though, and even brought a tissue to his grandmother at the podium when she started crying (entirely on his own, which was darling). The service exceeded his attention span though, so he needed to be taken to go explore.

comment What should I do when my daughter's health is affected by the cats at my parents home when we visit?
If your parent hasn't treated for fleas (or just done a plain carpet wash) due to cost concerns, offer it as a gift or something? Beyond that, just keep in mind: YOU are the mama, YOU make the rules.

comment How to handle a defiant 2-year old when he takes something he shouldn't?
4 months later, perhaps due to the techniques mentioned here he exhibits this behavior a LOT less often. (Now it's grabbing a pen and something we don't want him to write on.) Endearingly, he has turned his talent to taking dangerous things away from his little sister and returning them to us.

comment How to get toddler to eat eggs?
He got to help my wife prepare an omelette today, filled with things he likes which he loved. He got a huge thrill over bringing me to breakfast and was excited showing me the omelette. But when I offered a bit he said, "No, I don't want any. I not like it because it's icky." %-)

comment How to get toddler to eat eggs?
He'll definitely eat food that contains eggs, like french toast, cake, etc. Weirdly he's not really into sandwiches other than the occasional pbj, but that's not a bad idea.
