    Congratulations, Danielle!!!


    I, too, am a mother of six, three girls first and then three boys. Since this is #6 for you, you know that a lot of that baby stuff is unnecessary. With my last two, I didn't even put up a baby bed. I knew they were gonna sleep with us anyway!

    I don't know, what is an AP parent? But, as for your 2nd question, boys are

    definitely easier. My girls are 27, 25 and 21. My boys are 19, 16 and 14.

    Congratulations!

    I just watched one of my favorite shows call "Till Debt Do Us Part" (a financial advisor who helps in debt couples dig out from under)

    Anyway, this lady was pregnant, and had nothing and the advisor gave her the task of having all of her friends and family over for some snacks, etc. She had a list of what she needed, down to the receiving blankets, diapers, etc. Everyone had 'something' in their garage, or storage, or volunteered to crochet blankets, etc. This was a huge thing for her, and all of the ladies there said they wished they had done that when they needed baby stuff.

    Just a suggestion. I know that all the Moms I know still have baby stuff stashed.

    It&#39;s been so long ago I don&#39;t remember what it stands for but it&#39;s where as babies they sleep with you until they say they are ready for their own bed. They are nursed instead of having a bottle pretty much you let them guide you as far as when they are ready to move on so to speak,

    Oh I was thinking yours was a lot younger than that for some reason. I only have two boys and right now I&#39;m having so much trouble with the youngest I&#39;m wishing he was a she as it seems like I could deal with the stuff going on better. Oh and he&#39;s 18.

    My first four babies had a baby bed and they did use it some but mostly they

    slept with us. I did nurse them and it was just easier to have them in bed wth

    me. When Luke came along Jake was almost three and we had put the baby bed up

    and just didn't bother getting it back out. We needed the room anyway. Cole

    was born five days before Luke's 2nd birthday and I was concerned that we would

    have two babies in bed with us. But it wasn't a problem. Cole was born in our

    home at 6:30pm. At 10:00pm all the kids came in our room to kiss me and the

    baby goodnight and Luke went right with them off to bed. I don't remember which

    big sister he slept with that night but he just understood that the new baby

    slept with mama and daddy and he slept with the big kids. This is funny b/c all

    of my kids weaned themselves from the breast except Luke. I weaned him at 16

    months b/c I was pg with Cole. Boy, do I miss those baby days.

    My girls were more rebellious than my boys but my girls remind me that I was a

    lot stricter on them than I am with the boys, meaning the boys haven't had as

    much to rebel against. Which is true, b/c I Iearned to loosen up and enjoy the

    ride. Ya know like in the movie Parenthood when the mom says "I happen to like

    the roller coaster!"

    Thank you for that, it helped remind me of those days with mine. I did

    everything wrong with the first. lol Bottles and crib etc, 4 and a half

    years later I nursed let him sleep with me etc. Tho he stopped nursing at 7

    months he was simply done. I always felt closer to him I guess because of

    the difference in the first few months with each being different. Now I'm

    closer to the older one as the younger really wants nothing to do with me

    now. Funny how things change.
