comment How do we teach our toddler that it's okay to go on the potty?
+1 for the modeling, that was a great success for us. (though I'm not sure I'd go with the "sitting on dad's lap" idea myself.) We did it by bringing in his kid sized potty to the bathroom, and whenever we took him in to go (every couple hours, if he said he had to or not) then we'd sit on the big potty and he'd sit on the little potty.

comment Do you use number of weeks or day of the month to determine an infant's birthday?
Possibly because you were off by a day: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February_24 and more importantly: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_calendar Mind you, back then they added an entire 13th month, that day just came and went periodically.

I would vote this up, except for that last line. :(

comment What size schoolbag is good for a first-grader?
Added benefit of a rolling backpack (trolley as you call 'em over there) is that once a kid is used to that they know how to handle a rolling suitcase in an airport. Our pre-K little one is so used to dealing with his at pre-school that he almost dealt with a much larger bag the whole way the last time we flew to grandma's. Kept him occupied and one less bag for me to fight with. Win-Win.

Wow, are they really telling you not to send peanuts because one other kid in the class has nut allergies? I'm kinda shocked.

comment We're looking to get pregnant - what can we do to optimize our chances?
There's one item on Technique that is missing here. Both partners need to orgasm, and he needs to be first. The muscle contractions of the woman's orgasm have been shown (literally, with fiber optic cameras inside the vagina) to help get more semen into the fallopian tubes to be exposed to the egg by way of more of it being picked up by the cervix and brought into the uterus.
